Time for society to take over for the parents. Parents failed. Society probably will not do any better but at least they will be locked up for a few years.

Thats real nice! Well, the 18 year old should be charged with rape and throwed in jail for about 20 years. The other two yard trash should get the same as well. This kind of crap just makes me sick! These thugs are all trash and should just be taken out on a one-way trip into the gulf.

This is the sweetest girl in the school, she is nice to everyone and very popular in sports. these guys are scum and need to go away for a long time. most of the black students act this way towards white students and we are terrified by them

and they want to put elementary kids on there? Maybe those people losing a half an hour pay can get it back as a bus monitor... it would be cheaper than gas...

Animals. Savages. Brutes. Thugs. Monsters.

Take your pick. Then get in line behind me for a crack at these pieces of garbage. Bring your own "educational tool", as my baseball bat will be reduced to splinters by the time I'm done.

I sure some moron(s) will chime in with the usual obligatory, idiotic excuses.

"There must be some thing going on in their lives that made them do this."
"We have to get them some help; they're obviously not in their right minds."
"You people want to be judge, jury and executioner."
"If it was your child that did this you wouldn't want anything bad to happen to them."
"You people need to get all the facts before you start judging these boys."

...and the best one of all...

"I know these boys AND their families; they're good kids."

I apologize if I left out any of the major whining, hand-wringing, bleeding-heart excuses, but I was kinda pressed for time.

These three should never be allowed to set foot in any school again in their worthless lives.

I’d bet a year salary that they’ve done this before.

Gut shoot them in public and let them get whipped, kicked, raped, beaten, inser nasty verb here and let them die in the streets. Filthy rotten dirty thugs - these scum will never amount to anything other than low life crap as long as they are allowed to breath the same air as the rest of us.
And just what is the school going to do? Let me guess - absolutely nothing. The severity of the crimes these young thug jerks around here do makes me absolutely sick.
I have no problem with your suggested treatment for these animals.

What is the school going to do? What can the school do, beyond what they've already done - which is expel these animals?

Our schools are powerless to take any kind of action against students - even the ones they know have no interest whatsoever in learning - until AFTER the student has committed an extremely barbaric or violent act. If administrators try to proactively expel habitually disruptive, even violent, students they risk being sued.

Corporal punishment was one the best behavioral modification tools ever employed in our schools, and, along with prayer, its use is no longer allowed.

I'd never subject any child of mine to the terror, mayhem and violence so prevalent in today's public schools. I'd go into debt up to my eyeballs to pay for private schooling before I'd allow my kids to endure such madness.

Excuse me Floridians. I happened upon this story and immediately wondered how did the police catch wind of this. Did the victim report this to the police? Were there witnesses? Did an onboard camera capture the incident? From how the article reads, it looks like a consensual sexual encounter turned violent. Thats no excuse for the actions of the accused. Sexual assault is unacceptable, period. The article definitely needs some clarifying of the questions I presented.

Why are kids from South St Pete going to school in Pinellas Park anyway. Back to neighborhood schools. I would say send them back to Lakewood but they will be in jail anyway. The two younger ones will get off but the 18 year old needs to do some time. Low life scum bag MF's.

If it was my daughter, I would hope they let him out on bail so I could get hold of him!

What "sleep number" are you using that enables you to dream up such nonsense? I'm sure more that few "white girls are actually terrified by the blacks", but I seriously doubt "most" are.

Have you been to any hip-hop clubs? They're literally crawling with Caucasian girls looking to hook up with 'hard','thug' type guys. The same holds true of hip-hop/gansta rap concerts.

They probably SHOULD be afraid of the 50-Cent, Snoop Dog wannabe's but the reality is many of them are actively seeking out these 'bad boys'.

A son of one of my friends - black, clean-cut, college grad - was dumped by his Caucasian girlfriend shortly after he graduated and began working in corporate America. She told him he had become 'soft' and 'white-acting', and she wanted a 'brutha' who had more 'street toughness'. Who/what did she dump him for? One of his old high school friends who never even graduated from high school.
