    What it means is exactly what I said it means, she has some responsibility in this. I am a white guy and if I decided to go to Compton late one night and walk through the meanest part of town and I got the crap beat out of me it would be partially my fault. Just because I'm a white guy in Compton doesn't mean you have a right to beat the crap out of me but the reality is theres a damn good chance it will happen.

    Arrogance is what sank them. If these guys had just kept their mouths shut this girl wouldn't likely have a case. From what I understand, the principal evidence proving the nature of the sex act was their facebook, text and picture content.

    If they had kept quiet they could have claimed it was consensual and probably gotten away with it.

    He didn't say that, but these guys are high school kids and their dicks are running their damn body and they just so happen to be drunk. Young girls better be aware of the dangers present in that situation. Considering that most people are morally bankrupt at their core that only raises the chances things are going to go wrong in that situation when the only thing stopping their true nature has been removed from the equation.

    You should be ashamed of your limp wristed complete disregard for the suffering of the 16 year old victim and your hot eyed leap to wrap a cloak of warm Liberal goo around the brutality of the perpetrators. Liberals like you are precisely what causes things like this to happen to innocent children.

    Sure it's not smart to get drunk, but that doesn't mean she should take responsibility for being raped! That's misogynistic and you're punishing the victim. Maybe you should instead not hate the victim and instead place full blame on the rapists for raping her.

    The rapist's father takes some responsibility. I think there's enough blame to go around.

    Not like we'll do anything to correct this behavior, no, we're worried about gun control and gays in the military instead.

    The guys are responsible for their reprehensible actions. They violated that girl and showed little regard for what they did (outside of pleasure or pride). They certainly deserved to be punished.

    But I agree with those who say the girl has some level of responsibility for putting herself in a situation where her safety was compromised. She didn't do anything to "deserve" being raped, and her errors in judgment do not lessen the severity of the actions taken by the boys. But she made terrible decisions, compromised her own ability to protect herself, and left herself weak and vulnerable to the nefarious actions of others.

    I feel for her in many ways, but being a victim doesn't negate her obligation to protect herself, or excuse her for failing to do so. I hope she's learned from this experience and that with therapy and encouragement she'll find a way to move on from what happened and learn to make better decisions in the future.

    IMO a rape conviction should come with a mandatory death penalty.
    That's too harsh, especially because it's one of the easiest false accusations.
