if these boys are released to their parents ,will they have to register as sex offenders to protect other children?do they have a special school for these boys to attend so they can continue to get their education?

I dont understand how boys that age can physically rape someone. I am horrified at this, and wonder what kind of life these babies have that make them act out on another person in such a way. This is one of the saddest things I have ever read.

25 years ago Jesse Jackson came to Atlanta and spoke to every black group that would listen. He stated that there were 20,000 unprosecuted cases of child molestation in Fulton County (Atlanta). The authorities were going to start a crackdown and he was there to warn the black community to change their habits before the axe fell on them. Children learn this behavior from their parents and from other household adults. It's time for Jesse to come back to Atlanta for another pep talk.

I don't believe it. 8 and 9 year olds can't rape anyone, let alone an 11 year old. The police are rushing to judgement again.

If a 9 year old girl can get pregnant then a 9 year old boy can rape someone. I don't believe the police are rushing into anything.

Cherry: Boys that age are "capable" and as I said, some are Not little (boys), and if the girl I saw, from the neck down, standing next to her mother, is the girl who was raped, she was petite.
She could have been over-powered by 3 boys.

All of us at one time or another played hide and seek, house ect as a kid you guys are ruining these kids life. Think about it when you played kiddy games and how curious you were as a kid We as a society need to stop this madness with our children. Talk to those kids and let this mess go.

If these boys committed this act, they have obviously been sexually abused themselves. There is no way these kids should be in their parents custody. CPS needs to start investigating these parents ASAP.

America is a dangerous place to be a little boy. A country where at the tender age of eight you can be taken from your parents and locked up in a correctional institution ON THE FLIMSIEST CHARGES IMAGINABLE. And then to be tried in the court of public opinion and declared guilty without any due process at all. Meanwhile, the public sheds crocodile tears for the poor eleven year old girl, who must've towered over boys three years her junior and could've outrun them easily. What this case really sounds like is a police department and prosecutor's office that is completely out of control! And an American public that is insanely stupid and lacking the ability for critical thought.
A very dangerous place to be a little boy.

Was there ever any story(s) updated stories about what has what happened to any of the people involved in this? The three rapists, their "parents", the girl and her parents?

No, I don't see anything, but here is the story from 11/07. There was a gag order on the case, so I suppose we'll never know.

(11/19/07 - ACKWORTH, GA)-- Three boys, ages 8 and 9, were being held Monday in a detention center on charges of kidnapping and raping an 11-year-old girl near a suburban apartment complex, officials said.
The alleged attack happened Thursday and the girl's mother reported it to authorities Sunday, Acworth police Capt. Wayne Dennard said. < /p>
"The victim said they were playing outdoors and the girl was forced into a wooded area where she was sexually assaulted, where one of the boys raped her," Dennard told The Associated Press. < /p>
The three boys -- an 8-year-old and two 9-year-olds -- appeared in juvenile court Monday afternoon, dwarfed by the courtroom chairs and wearing navy blue jump suits and shackles. Their names were withheld because of their age. < /p>
Story continues belowAdvertisement
Cobb County District Attorney Pat Head said the boys could not be charged with felony crimes because of their age but could be tried for alleged delinquent acts that could place them in a juvenile facility for up to five years. < /p>
The next step will be for the court to schedule a hearing to determine how to proceed in the case, Head said. < /p>
Juvenile Court Judge A. Gregory Poole issued a gag order preventing the lawyers from commenting further. < /p>
Acworth Police Chief Mike Wilkie said one of the boys was accused of threatening to hit the girl with a rock before the alleged assault. Wilkie also said the investigation is "far from over," and investigators are looking into claims that after the alleged attack, the girl talked about it with her friends at a slumber party. < /p>
The girl's mother told WGCL-TV in Atlanta, "They do need to be taught a lesson because if they do it to her, they could do it to somebody else. And who knows when they become teenagers what they can do to other girls." < /p>
The case involves children from a working class apartment complex. Acworth, 30 miles northwest of Atlanta along the shores of Lake Allatoona, is a town of about 17,000. < /p>
Acworth police said their department has never before investigated allegations of rape where all the parties were this young. "This wouldn't be normal anywhere, but especially not Acworth," Dennard said. < /p>

Yes, the kids certainly need(ed) to be taught a lesson or two, ones that their parent(s) lacked doing in their job as a parent. But their parents ALSO need to be punished. To start, for the father, we need a saw, for the mothers a needle and "steel thread".

OOOOOooooooooouch.:|

While I make an effort NOT to dwell on the reason for many crimes, you have to know that these boys have been exposed to something far beyond what might be appropriate for their ages, whether in person, pornography, etc. That being said many adults are probably responsible for this action.

You are exactly right. That is why I said that was just to start with for the parents lol That is one of the biggest problems in this country is all those women spreading their legs for every man that walks along and all those men taking advantage of every woman out there with neither one utilizing contraception or condoms. That would taking thinking, I understand....and that is too much for many people these days, but it IS required.
