Where were the adults in this house? Why was a ten year old left with the twins unattended long enough to assault them?(If that's REALLY what happened!)

Tragedies with kids occur everyday with adults present and supervising, and I don't think it's right to quickly scold the people involved. For example, the twins could have innocently slept in the bed with the girl for the night, and no parent would ever think that there little girl would molest the other little girls in her bed.

I think the 10-year-old is probably a victim of abuse herself, and I hope the authorities will do everything they can to help treat this girl in order to try to break this horrible cycle.

I agree a 10 year old girl had of learned this behavior somewhere. I hope they are looking into this farther.

I agree with all of the above. Check into this family history and see if this has been going on for awhile. And also take her TV and movies and books and internet and trips to the grocery store. We will just all of lives problems on Hollywood. But seriously, check the parents!

She had to learn it somewhere!

Kids grow up WAY too fast nowadays...My 10 year old granddaughter knows more than i did at age 15 or 16. Sad.. what society subjects these kids to. Not enough parental supervision, they are running around the neighborhoods unsupervised. This girl may have been abused also. for her to even know what to do. I hope she gets the help she needs.

To much sex on t.v. kids see to much, what is going on in the world, at a very early age. and as they say sex sells it is what every money can buy that is the only thing that counts now days. hearing thing like this make me feel sad because I feel that the child whole life is done.

I absolutely believe this child was a victim of someone else. Do not be so quick to judge parents, it is in many cases not them.

At one time we just called it "playing doctor" and nobody made a big deal about it.

Yea, 70 years we also ran around the neighborhood unsupervised, yes, at 10. We even played doctor and show me yours and I'll show you
mine. And I was always the examining doctor. Being facetious (look it up), but we never hospitalized anyone. Damn, what a screwed up world. Then again, it is broadcast with 3 minutes after it happens, world wide.

From the mouth of a man with no clue. Doctors aren't supposed to cause injury.

I'll tell you a secret - we weren't real doctors.

Iam a bit late posting my comment on this article. I just found these online news journals. I am not surprised with this lude act of the 10 yr old. I had a family living in the apt. under me and they had 4 kids and 2 adults living in the same apt. Not only were these kids the worst kids you could ever imagine but it was rumored that the 9 yr old boy would screw around with the 3 yr old little girl and I believed it the way they all behaved and carried on with each other. Those people and the ones who lived under me all need Jesus bad!

I love how people blame tv, magazines and movies. WHERE WERE THE PARENTS???? If you teach your kids how to behave, the difference between right and wrong, it won't ever matter what they watch on tv.

Love the brilliance of these posters. I DID use the word FACETIOUS and even stated: look it up. Didn't you ever hear of playing Doctor/Nurse. Lighten up people. Always jump to radical conclusions. This incident will require AT LEAST a 5 MINUTE "TIME-OUT". You reap what you sew.

Ya know what a-hole this is really not a forum to be "facetious" in. Get real your making jokes about children being molested and violated. Your a sick perv. Maybe officials need to be investigation you. I bet you are a molester!I wonder what type of stuff they would find on you computer. RUDE, DISCUSTING, INCONSUDERATE PIG!Please take your sarcastic crap elsewhere and have respect, molestation is no joke!

Chris, freedom of speech. Posts are, facetious or not, for everyone's opinion, not just your holier-than-thou attitude. I am open for investigation of my computer at any time. Possibly, English 101 would be an outlet for your discovery on spelling and sentence structure.
