Gang rape of 11 year old girl? Her fault because she went with one of them?

This is the most recent article. Other articles have said she dressed like a 21 year old woman and she was very flirty and she got in the car with one of the guys.

Some people on here have said they wouldn't have sympathy for a woman who puts herself in danger by wearing slinky clothes or going with a man and not using sense.

  • Why are the girls always to blame? I don't get it. It's like we are responsible for men's sexual arousal but why can't they just know in their brain that it's wrong?

  • Ever watch "Very Young Girls"? It's about girls as young as ten years old being pimped out as prostitutes and THEY are the ones being charged with a crime, even though I think they're too young to even know what they go themself into. The grown men should be put in jail for the rest of their life.

  • I want to know where the parents were too. I was at home playing in the dirt in my back yard at that age.

  • So an 11 year old is not to blame but a woman in her 20's would be to blame for being assaulted if she made a bad choice? It seems like a child would have less sense and it is up to the parent to teach them better BUT if the parent does not do that then that 11 year old girl grows up and becomes the same 2o something year old who other have said don't deserve sympathy. I don't agree with any of that. Wrong is wrong even if poor judgement is used. It is awful that young girls that are prostituted are charges too. Things really really need to change. i have one daughter and one on the way and i hate hearing this mess or stories or sex trafficking.

  • Rape is rape and no woman is ever to blame for being raped, even if they dress like a ho, actually even if they are a paid whore, its still against the law. I am sure the men in this case will be charged & convicted of the crime. I would also however like to see a cps investigation into her home life. She really should never have been out and about at just 11 yrs old like this and in a situation where this could even happen. I would understand if it was a babysitter or next door neighbor because we cannot control things like that, but to my knowledge (and correct me if I am wrong) this was not the case.
