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.
Why should she have known? Are all men rapists?

wow to tell u the truth i knew those guys n they were strait up creepers...i would never in my life go to a hotel room with 5 men even if they were friends especially them. things change wen you involve alcohol, but that still does not make the girl at fault!!! those guys always gave me a bad vibe i juss never thought they would fall so low!!

wow. its crazy reading these comments. you people have no idea what its like to be manipulated like that. well in case anyones still reading this, four of the men escaped. the one that was tried was found not guilty because during the rape the lights were off and she couldnt say she actually saw him on top of her. and as for the comment about money, thats crapp. she had the chance to file a civil suite which are easier to prove then criminal cases and she could have gotten money. but she didnt. because she wasnt in court to get money from these guys because a million dollars couldnt buy back what she lost that night. i used to come on here all the time to read the things ppl said about this case. its not easy coming forward with something like rape. its because of what people say that keeps girls quiet about these things. give us a break.

PJF- San Fran.., the story is very true..I worked on the case..the reason there was not more facts on this case is because there was a major headline here the same day..you might have heard..jennifer hudsons mom, brother and nephew were all murdered..it kinda stole the headlines..do your homework before shoot your yap off..we have enough rubbish to clean up here..chicago..
Your response is anything but adhering to the ethics of journalism. Jennifer Hudson's mother, brother and nephue being murdered is absolutely no excuse for publishing rubbish. We have a choise -- report the story in a newsworthy manner, or don not report the story at all.

I am sorry, but some girls can be total biatches, and act like victims. I know some of the guys, and they are not rapists or criminals. I just hope the truth comes out because it eventually does, and if one guy is not charged its because obviously the story she is telling isn't completely true. I just don't believe in this girl...I don't feel sorry for you at all, and I hope everyone involved gets what they deserve.

I'm not one to blame the victim, but I will say that this was a failure on the part of everyone's parents. Primarily it's the failure of the boys' parents for not teaching them right from wrong. They are to blame here, make no mistake.
But I also have to wag my finger at the girls' parents, that they did not provide her the proper information to help her avoid situations like this. I agree that it's never the fault of the victim, but at the same time, this is a situation that could have been avoided.
What I want to know is where the friend went and if she was in on it.

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.
Okay, before things get out of hand, I'd like to address this post.
Now, as I've said before, this is not the fault of the victim. These young men did what they did and whether or not she should have been in that motel is irrelevant.
But this does not mean that it's open season on men because this tragedy happened. Both men and women are capable of violent crimes, so lets dial down the drama, shall we. These thugs are not men, men don't need to do these things. They're children, scared little boys who don't possess the necessary intelligence, grace and class to actually get a woman to want to have sex with them, so they resort to forcing the issue.
And as far as "torture" goes - have you ever dated a woman?:)

well even if she did have sex with others mayb she didn't want to have sex with them.. but if she had sex with them previously and is bipolar then that changes the situation. i agree that she knew what she was going in for even if she had another friend with her u do not party with 5 guys im pretty sure she knew them enough to trust them and i read the previous post stating a friend of hers knows the real situation sometimes girls lie if they aren't happy with something and this situation seems odd since this girl oviously wanted something and the "limbo" is saying she knew her and she actually messed around with these guys multiple times before. so anyone that can update us? were the guys caught? or was the "victim" lying? was she really a hoe and asking for it?

Wow! Really??? Obviously we were not friends. Its truely amazing the things people will say about situations they know nothing about. This happened 8 years ago. Sorry, were you not informed that all five confessed? One lawyered up n got off cuz the states attorney messed part of the case up basically.
Doesn't matter. I can honestly say, after much time and counseling, I have healed. I have a beautiful life. Idk what ever happened to the other four, but I am confident karma will find them, if it hasn't already. I could explain a lot more, like how I was friends with them, or so I thought, or how we had hotel parties on several occasions with other female friends bc everyone lives with family and there was no where else to go, but what's the point? I know the whole story, the detectives believed me, my family and friends believed me, and those men know the truth. And karma will handle the rest.:-)

What I wanted was the same thing I wanted any other time we hung out. To have a few beers n hang out with the guy I liked and his friends (some of which were girls). But I guess that's another reason not to judge a situation unless you know the whole story right? I was actually talking to one of them. Oh and the guys confessed. All five. On record. Please be cautions posting negative opinions like these on articles liked this. I used to read these posts all the time n the things people would write hurt at first. That's a minor you're talking about.

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..
Kids make mistakes, this isn't a mistake like theft or dwi or fighting, this was rape and these aren't kids there animals that need to be publicly hung. No souls= no more breathing. Scumbags.
