    I'm not saying the boys are guilty.

    I'm horrified that the boys apparently are being let off so easily, and even more horrified at the reaction of the town against the girl's family.

    If you're not saying the boys are guilty then what has you so horrified and why have you twice now said it WAS rape? Why would you be horrified about someone not being punished for a crime you're NOT saying they committed? If the allegations were false, would you be equally as horrified on the boy's behalf?

    Not saying anything about whether the allegations in the OP are true or not because I don't know, but there is a purpose for the criminal justice system and allegations does not equal convictions.
    THe 17-year old boy admitted having sex with the 14-year old girl. It should have been slam dunk.

    Why are you defending the boys - and not the girls?

    That doesn't matter. She could have been prancing around the yard buck naked and that 17-year old boy still broke the law when he boinked her.

    Plus - there was a witness and a video tape of the crime.

    Common practice among Conservatives, I'm afraid. In their world, a woman should keep her knees clamped shut. If they end up raped, she obviously did something wrong. Righties blame the woman...you know, just like the Taliban do.

    It's bad that alot of these type of crimes are being recorded, but in another way it's kinda good that now it can be proven what really happened, instead of the girl being blamed and shunned. I just hope the next update to the story isn't the girl's suicide. How horrible to go through that and then deal with such b.s.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.
