I saw the clip of the Father so sad second about the girl who said if she cant handle it she shouldnt take it. Shit for you!!!!! If it happen to you then you would be between your moms legs.
The hell with courts there going to let them go theres no justice in the courts for rape the case will go on for 3 years they will spend 7 in jail until the judge asks for bail, thenn the parents bail them out then there free to rome the streets and scare her if she talks
And beleave me she will never be the same
Yes I heard there were drugs involved anyone tell me which teenager who hasent tried it yes you can handle it but when a girl is pinned down by a gang theres no way to handle it .
If my son or and boy I know who did it and I didnt report it I would be no better then the rapest.And God ownly knows who had it all planned out .
As a Canadian I see the courts really suck in rape cases .
For the dad you can say she will be ok but it always stays with them and they never come back its adamage that cant be repaireded no court or doctor can fix it. I know you love your daughter but hold her tight because she need mom and dad support. For the guys who are guilty I hope you all rot in hell.
For the parents of the kids who are guilty and the kids who enjoyed watching your no better then the rapest who did the assult , shame on the parents ,shame on the court system of Canada

People who are looking for the pics, wanting to see if it's real are pretty sick. Stories like this aren't made up. There's a child involved... her dad is involved.. It doesn't matter if we 'see' what happened. It's bad enough knowing there is scum amongst us. We don't need to see visuals. They must be major hillbillies... no class at all.

This is a brutal event that will no doubt tremendously impact this young girls entire life. How the men who perpetrated this insideous crime can live with themselves is beyond comprehension to any mentally stable human being. These men deserve to suffer for an extensive period of time...and then forced to re-live that suffering for the rest of their lives over and over again. Unfortunately we live in a society that demonstrates tolerance, acceptance, and apathy for the perpetrators of crimes like these. This is clearly proven by our Young Offenders Act and its sad minimal sentences that provide very little substance in deterring would-be criminals. Further proving this fact is our legal system, and our members of society who insist on examining the pasts of these criminals to determine if their rough upbringing played a role in their choices, and then proceeding to treat the offenders rather than enforce justice for the victim. It's very sad...but this country in no way stands united behind the introduced legislation and implementation of any true deterring consequences or punishments. Unfortunately, until that changes, crimes like these can only be expected to continue.

Further to the disgusting act of these perpetrators in circulating disgusting images of their inhumane actions against this poor girl...Obviously their are people who know who these criminals are. How about using facebook, or some other social networking media to diistribute the first and last names, addresses, home phone numbers, and areas these perpetrators frequent in an effort to assist karma. These brutal criminals used social networking to circulate this poor girl's images and the horrifying and traumatizing violence against her. This will hurt her over and over. Why doesn't somebody stand up and advertise these sick criminals using the same avenues. Post photographs of the criminals not the victim! This way the public can identify them and treat them as they deserve to be treated.

Just a thought.

"YOU" want to see pictures????? Who the hell do you think you are?
Just "wanting" to "see" pictures speaks volumes of your intelligence and your integrity.
IN 'CANADA' we 'ADULTS' have no reason to doubt her, and 'WE' will give her the benefit of the doubt. When the POLICE are finished with their investigation, then we'll see about what happened and weight it fairly. FOR now the police say she was drugged. I have NO reason to doubt "our" CANADIAN police forces.
They are asking people to NOT share those disgusting pictures so dearie just by virtue of ASKING for them, YOU are no better than the one distributing them. What is wrong with your pea brain?

SOrry that you are a blind sheep, it is said these pics were "viral" I have never seen them and i use facebook and i know alot of people in my area that use it aswell. I also live in the next city over from where they say this happened.

If the cops and her and her parents claim there are pictures. Well why not show everyone so we know it aint bull shit and also so we can see whos fucking her. We get a face they get a name. that simple.

you can not always believe what you hear and read.

They said the kid took pics as they were having sex with her so how can no one get the identity of them, well get help from the public publish the pictures so they can give hints to who the guys were that "raped" her

Was she gang raped or gang banged there's a difference. She was a willing participant

At this point, we are all just people who are split more or less into 2 sides: one who is saying she is raped and other side saying she's not. Everyone needs to be patient until MORE EVIDENCE comes out. There are reasonable doubt on both sides and frankly, I'm waiting to hear more from reports.

But one thing we can all agree on. Those that snapped pictures and decide to post on facebook are completely wrong. It doesn't matter if it was willing or rape, the people posting the pics definitely made it worse.

Drugged , no consent , trust that she could not form consent or resistance, when a hospital exam is done there's a specific medical area in a clock representation that can show bruising and forced entry. Yes but why can't the people ,including the cam person point to the perps, fear of retribution these perps are into illegal drugs . Don't be naive the country is awash with criminals that are getting more brazen , is this a result of slap on the wrist court or just a general pas to soft criminals like cannabis users ? Most cannabis users consider themselves not committing a crime, it's normal they say. Why turn in a criminal , if a charge is made the crown must share the complaint's name with the defence, how is that helpful? the charged gets to obsess and stalk the complaint,afterward.
Not good ,no wonder that the crimes are ignored, why put one's self in danger of retribution? Are we just stupid citizens , i don't think so.

They should bring back the STOCK,S chain the dirty sod,s up in public, throw rotten fruit and veggies, make an example of them publicly. Do you think that poor girl will ever forget this. Make those who did this disgusting deed pay ,also all those who watched and did not try to prevent it, they arent people, just scared to act shame on you..Stuff the Justice system, they arent going to move very fast, take the brutes out in the forest and give them a good hiding.Teach them a lesson they will never forget.

The reactions of some of the victim's peers is particularly disturbing. I know you have all seen the comments on the news by a few girls from the victim's school. I've seen their private comments on Facebook too. I know that at least two girls were responsible for spreading the photos around as well as making bullying comments and spreading rumors. There is so little compassion and empathy shown by these people, its frightening to think of these people being let loose in society as adults.

hhhh

I agree. Those people are gross. It's one thing to have opinions whether you think it's rape/not rape. It's another thing to just bully and spread rumors and pictures to make the situation worse. Makes me fear what kind of adults they'll become.

And then there are just people who don't care at all. I'm not saying you have to stand up and wave banners, but some people aren't shocked at all. Sex and pornography is just commonplace nowadays. Same goes with violence and such.

So... people who have their own opinions on whether this is a rape or not, I actually respect that, even if I don't agree with them. At least they're not indifferent.

What is a picture going to tell us??? who would ever want to see someone being abused in anyway.... have some character or morals please. this girl willingly or not clearly was probably on drugs and was not in the right state of mind. NO one in there right mind would want 7 people sleeping with them, especailly at 16. This is very serious, and should not be taken lightly. Parents need to reaLize the choices their kids are making at such a young age now adays and prevent them from hanging around the wrong crowd. If you are going to raves at 16 you are clearly hanging out with the wrong crowd. I wish the girl the best recovery and everyone should write and post suportive messages not messages doughting her story or asking for pictures of this desgusting event,.
