    If a teenager gets into one of their friends vehicles knowing the driver is super drunk, and gets into a serious accident, is it not at all the teenagers fault? Mapping this in a quantitative fashion, the teenagers actions are an dependent variable to the outcome.
    Oh i agree, there is some measure of protection and common sense people need to ensure they do their best to stay safe

    Apparently they are a bit slow when it comes to protecting people's rights... Like the right to not be raped.

    I am not suggesting this either. What i am suggesting is the age old proverb: do not talk to strangers, even other kids.

    Not surprising considering rape was used as a method of war by some soldiers in Liberia. Was very high and probably still is despite this law

    I think most laws go out the window when war is going on.

    I wonder how much backlash this story is really going to have. Because, honestly in the end, Americans are just going to think that father to be (and correctly so) a savage. What sort of man could look his daughter in the face after something like that and even think about saying "it's your fault, you've brought us shame"? A father should be doing all he can to not run out and kill all those little bastards who hurt his little girl. And that's sorta the American mentality on it, this being so radically different than how we could consider responding I wouldn't be surprised if this negatively impacted the views Americans have on these refugees.

    Red herring. Unless of course you are stating that peoples age can excuse some actions? You cannot have it both ways in this regard.

    Point taken, but do we know these children were unacquainted? The girl was 8 and one of the suspects is 9, so it's quite possible they knew each other from school.

    I agree though, someone somewhere along the line should have taught her to avoid such situations.

    And that is really my point. Even if she knew the 9 year old, i highly doubt she knew the others. Of course i am speculating. I am just trying to make things interesting because it seemed like a one sided debate on the issue; i completely agree that those boys were heavily in the wrong, and need to face a very stiff punishment in an adult prison (if you get my drift)....
