I would wager to bet they were Hispanic youth who did this.

Why are these kids out so late at night? Where is the parental supervision? Street lights come on, kids should be in the house!

I would guess that you're white, and probably racist.

What in the world was a 14 year old doing out after midnight anyway. Why was she the only one attacked if she was with FRIENDS. There is more to this story then meets the eye.

I agree, the parents need to have better control over their kids. That is what is wrong with a large part of society; parents too busy doing whatever they want to do instead of raising their kids.

Okay FIRST! I just can't believe this has happened in PERFECT Virginia... where the sun always shines and everything is right with the world...:-)

Second: Someone please tell me why a 14 year old girl was out walking at midnight! ALONE? Oh! that's right, I almost forgot she was walking in Fairfax VA, where they're always shocked to hear that something has happened in their neighborhood.

At 12 midnight my daughter wouldn't be out walking ANYWHERE to meet ANYONE! Where was her parents? She should have been at home! Let's use a little common sense people!

... and for all those who like to point out the fact that the perp's are probably hispanic... Maybe she was too, so what difference does it make! Her parents shuold have had her at home where she belonged!

Uhhh Maybe it's just me, and I am sure someone has already touched on this fact, but why were any of them out after midnite? Isn't there some sort of curfew in Fairfax?

What the heck were any of them out at that time of night for??? Who do you meet at midnight? What happened to her friends?

I'm sure her parents are just 'shocked' at what happened.... as if they didn't know she was wandering the streets at Midnight.

a 14 year old girl out after midnight (remember Cerfew laws?) attacked by a group of 12 to 15 year olds? Sounds like some parents in Burke are NOT living up to their responsibilities!

I think it's time for CPS to do a bit of looking...something about 'Neglect'?

you're half-right. I'm an American of Northern European descent, and I am a PARENT!

It's probably a lie that she made up to cover up some promiscuous activity. And why must every incident be blamed on Hispanics? There are a lot of bad White boys in the Fairfax County Public Schools!

Most of the responses have hit the nail on the head - what happened to the friends she was with and what a fools her parents are and she is a fool also. At 14 she should have known better unless she is really, really stupid. I can't work up much sympathy for her. Do find it hard to believe it happened in VA. though from previous postings I thought VA was immune.

OH NO Not Virginia (Fairfax County). Thank God the news is not about PG County for a change.

Kids of all races (including myself at that age) walk around in Burke way after midnight...most of the time they're hanging out at the Wendy's or next to the Shell station. It's been a relatively safe area...well at least up until now.

Could it be she <gasp!> SNUCK OUT of the HOUSE???? The ol' "climb out the window when the parents thing you're asleep" routine? That sort of thing has been going on for decades (possibly even *centuries*!). Hopefully she'll think twice about it next time and be thankful her only loss was a phone & a jacket.
