Wow this kind of stuff makes me really sick. I can't believe five men would gang up on one girl and do such heinous things to her! Stuff like that makes us women afraid to leave our houses at night! Hell we're even scared to be anywhere at night, even the comfort of our own homes! It's all because some of you sick, perverted men that commit your nasty crimes and torture us women everyday.

Well the first step for your protection Kylie would be to stay out of a Motel 6 room with five men.

I don't think that anyone deserves to be disrespedcted, or raped by any means. I just hope that the boys serve time for theier sick prank, and sick enjoyment. In reality is that it wasn't a brilliant thing for this young girl to be going to a hotel on a saturday. I'm sure that she had noo intensions on playing play station. This is another situation that good have be possibly avoided if parents would talk and explain to them what happens when we try act like adults. Im not sure if her parents even knew or even cared where the girl was going. I hope these pigs get what they deserve in the jail, but on another note this teen showed no respect for herself either..

A serious lapse in judgement changed this girl's life forever.

I hope she gets all the help she needs and best of luck to her.

I don't feel sorry for a 17 year old girl who would go to a hotel with 5 men on a Saturday night. She knew what she was in for.

Sensationalism in America's media...what a lovely interesting story...I call state, what utter rubbish is this, rubbish to fill the brains of people with very, very limited imagination.

Where is the analysis in this empty story?....Where were her parents at the time of the incident?....What is a 17-year old female doing with five men in a hotel room, late at night and on the weekend? Hmmm! Were the men drunk? Who sold them alcohol? Why did the hotel not have better security...it's America, we like to think that we do everything right, no?

Where is the identity of the men? Stop inventing lies...there isn't even a police officer's name attached to this rubbish. What hotel did the incident occur in? We may call the five men: perverts and psychos to satisfy our,'I'm a good guy ego!' This report is rubbish, rubbish and utter rubbish.

Totally, what did she think they were going to the motel room for - to play tiddle-winks. She got what she set herself up for.

i think that the comments stating that it was her fault are sick and should be checked by a doctor there is no reason what so ever to be faulted if you had been raped, yes she should not have gone to the motel with five men but come on i doubt she would have known she was to be raped, rape is something that is disguesting and grusome and a crime that has to be stopped, rape changes a person in many ways, i think that those people who commented that it was her fault can go get a life because they DO NOT know what the heck they are saying

Elk Grove Village police said the 17-year-old female accompanied the men ranging in age from 17 to 21 to the Motel 6 at 1601 Oakton Street that evening. She and another female friend thought they were going to a party, according to Cook County State's Attorney office spokesman Andy Conklin.

When her friend left the room, the 17-year-old female said the men gave her vodka and beer, Conklin said. She said Edgar Barboza, 19, of Carpentersville, forced her to have sex while the others held her down and also assaulted her, according to Conklin.

That's just cold . I hope you never have a lapse in judgement that results in something as devasting as this act and not just by one person, this was a gang rape, I can't think of anything worse to happen to a woman/girl.

it doesn't matter if she went to a motel room with ten men naked that doesn't give anyone the right to violat her. if she said no it was no they raped her and that is not her fault all of talking that crap need to be hurt. if it was you your sister or your momma your ass wouldn't that way. the laws says it doesn't matter if you are naked in the middle of sex if the girl says stop no and you do it or keep going that is rape i hope some cuts them five guys man hood off because they sure as hell don't deserve it. ignorant asses want to blame her what the hell is wrong with you people.

What all you don't seem to know is that hotel parties are pretty common these days. I don't think you even have to be 21 to rent a room. Just another things for parents to wake up about. I don't think blame should be laid at the girls feet. I don't know about you but I had a lot more guys freinds than girl friends growing up because girls at this age can be really bitchy. I never once felt threaten by the guys I hung around.

It's not as off base as you think for a girl to go to a hotel for a party. I just wish she would have figured these guys for the creeps that they were.

No woman deserves to be raped. And some of us don't want to live a life so jaded that we feel we must assume the worst in everyone. She trusted the wrong people and will likely never trust another man her whole life. Would you think the same thing if she ended up being the woman of your dreams and couldn't love you because of something you didn't do to her and couldn't have stopped? No woman deserves to be raped, but I have no doubt you would have joined in.

Rape is a crime of violence. Being alone with a woman does not give anyone the right to rape her.......she is a young trusting soul......shame on the youg men who did this to her and I hope they get what they deserve so they dont do it to anynone else.....

Very much the contrary - I have what she has and I have the good sense to know that 5 men + 1 hotel + liquor on a Saturday night = one very bad time for me..........
