I don't think this was a rape because of the low bail. Talk to the males and they'll say they were "just playing". Obviously their victim didn't perceived it as fun. Many young males today don't even know what sex is supposed to be since all they see are people on TV and in movies getting so heated up that they become nonverbal, rip each others clothes off, make no concessions to birth control, and lose all sense of appropriate behavior. The objectifying rap videos don't help.
All we need to do now is wait for their friends to start posting and writing "you don't know them", "they're good kids", and the girl is "lying on them".
yeah there friends age going to say that .. you really dont know them. they both are my best friends and everyone around the school knows that girls reputation as a slut. yeah, im giving it that they prolly did touch her, but they didnt hold her down. the school video tapes didnt show them doing nothing. just walking. one got a damn family and the other turned around his life for the better. n it dont make no since if she put her number in his phone earlier cause she said she wanted to chill. but i know with all my heart that they would not do something like hold her down n "rape" her. she has had a different story with almost everyone she has told. they wouldnt do something like that especially with scholarships going their way. get to know all the facts and the person before u say shit like oh there going to jail n all that shit. fuck outa here!

Lady AJ,

I have a daughter at MHS who is an honor student, a member of a varsity sport and on student council. I take strong offense to your comments regarding the girls of the school.

Parochial schools have always been an affordable alternative to private education for city residents who want better for their children. Unfortunately many are closing. Hartford, for example, only has two K-8 Catholic schools left.
And all you have to do in return is suffer your children being fed a load of nonsensical medieval dogma in place of an actual eduction.

As a Middletown taxpayer and a former parent,(2 MHS graduates) I am appauled at the lack of correct grammer and spelling that the students have posted on this site. One can only hope that the writting and grammer samples that appear on this site is not reflective of the "lack of quality education" at MHS.
Its unbelieveable how ignorant, and just damn stupid, these kids sound. It give hard working black parents-like myself and hard working black students who are really trying a really bad image. I would ask you guys to read what your classmates wrote on this site, but I am not sure you can!!!!!!!!!! READ

Sexual assault is not necessarily rape. It also includes forcible touching of a sexual nature. It can be any number of things and you just admitted that they probably did that.

This whole thing is being blown up. She is a liar and xavier/mercy parents need to stay out of this.It's very easy to say things when you just pay all that money to cover up the bad stuff that happens there. Middletown High has just as good Or even better academics then mercy or xavier.

I am a student at middletown high, and im sure that out of all the frustration and anger that many kids have because of the pathic 100 storys that this one girl is saying about the situation has them not focusing much on how there spelling, and it doesnt mean the teachers or staff, and older adults like youu (that just commented about how the kids are wrighting) are doing somthing wrong. Its not that serious and does mean that the kids are stupid if they spell a few words wrong, lets stay on th topic that you should be commenting about if your going to leave comments, you sound pathetic..and that you have nothing else to complain about.

Well said jazz. If mercy and xavier feel better saying that since they pay all that money they think nothing bad happens then let them be. But i have friends who do bad things at xavier and mercy so what your saying parents of students a those great schools, rethink what you are saying.

Keep in mind Reggie and Lonzell are innocent until proven guilty. There hearing has not happened yet the court case has not happened yet, the girl has only accused them of the crime.
And just because there black they have to listen to "gangsta rap" that's pretty ignorant.

Oh, and i did not realize that Mercy and Xavier students are angels.

You can't possibly ask to be taken seriously when you are afraid to put even you're first name in the name box. Mercy and Xavier may teach the morals of Jesus, but they also shield students from what is real and prevalent in our society and that is diversity. Not just ethnic, but idealistic, religious and plain social diversity are not things you can teach in a class room. Grow up people. The situation sucks any way you put it. Stop wasting you're time complaining about you're freaking tax dollars. Public schools CANT kick out the troublemakers, so you CANT compare them to private schools.
