Where were the parents of the 15 & 16 year old girls? Why were they allowed to be smoking pot and drinking at a boys house? Thats no excuse for what these guys did, but where is the parental supervision?? These guys should get the max. But obviously, the girls need some help too!

Since a 15 and a 16 year old have no business being at a guy's house from night into morning, I'm not convinced that this was really rape ... maybe it was just a matter of the girls getting caught by their parents.

Having said that, if it is proven that the creeps raped the girls, they should be locked up with other sexual predators like themselves. The 2 girls should also be locked up in their bedrooms until they gain the smarts to make better decisions.

The entire event could have been prevented had the girls used just a little common sense. That does not make the event less repulsive. The parents of all the people involved need a lesson is supervision of young adults. Concentrating on just the victims and perpetraders leaves out much of the blame. Parents need to know where their children are and who they are with. So many lives will be negatively impacted by things and it all could have been avoided. That is the real shame.

I am sorry for saying this but something is not right with this story. I agree and think these girls got caught by there parents and they are fabricating this story.

I really hope this is not the case because god help these girls if they made these accusations to cover there own buts.(Literally)

Sorry but one nver knows.

It's wrong that they were assaulted by so many guys. I really don't believe it was consensual. At the same time, why would 2 teenage girls be at a party with so many guys. Where were the owners of the house???

Why do you think the girls were black? You don't think white girls do stupid things? You would be amazed. 1970's girl with a bad reputation, would be considered a good girl today.

When all the facts are released, I hope that all the people that jumped to accuse these young men realize how prejudice they are. It really is ashame how the media and the justice system pushes a negative and distorted view of groups of people. i.e. city people, black people, jewish people. It feeds hate and ignorance. This is happening to many people all over this country, this is why these girls feel free to lie like this. They lie because they know these kids will be guilty before proven guilty. These girls can get the heat off of them and these boys will have their lives ruined. I don't believe it went down like these girl said. They are known in their school to be up for whatever. Not buying this and we all should wait for all the facts to get out.

Perhaps you should read the entire article...so all of you have the facts...the girls are rumored to be white actually.....the "men" who did this are of mixed races---some white, some black, some hispanic. ANYWAY---To all of you who are claiming these girls are covering up their stories...ARE YOU KIDDING ME?????? What would you say if this ever happened to your daughter?

Im from this town and know all of these people personally. All the guys that participated are white and only one white girl was "raped". Just clearing the race argument up. I think this is sick and it was wrong. I have sympathy for this girl but in my opinion she put herself in the situation. You should never go to a party without someone that you trust to take care of you by your side. However that did not give them any right to do what they did. I personally believe they all should be punished including the disgusting girl that took a video of it.

What is this world coming to parents need to make it their business to know where there children are, and who they're with . I don't care how old your kids are if they live with you it's your business for the both families of this tragic events I hope and pray that a lesson was learned from this no 1 comes out winning I'm a firm believer that you reap what you sow.
