If the suspects were thrown into jail without a trial, then I could understand it. I don’t see how the suspect’s or victim’s race has anything to do with what crimes were commited though.
If people want to defend a suspect, because they believe they are innocent, fine. Rape doesn’t require anyone to be tied up though, and what she wore and how she looked is completely irrevelant to whether or not crimes were committed.

I think the issue that a lot of people seem to have was that the girl repeatedly returned to the mobile home after the assaults, some sick folks have the mentality that “she wanted it, so she kept going back”. Some of those sick folks also maintain the belief that if it was a little black girl, it may not have caused an uproar like this. In my opinion, regardless of why she went back, and her race, SHE WAS 11 YEARS OLD. Even with makeup and all the short clothing in the world, there was no way that she looked a legal, consenting age. One of those men should’ve had a little more honor and moral turpitude and shut the whole shebang own; he should’ve either called the girls parents or the cops. Simple as that. There’s no excuse for what happened to her. Speaking of parents, where were hers?? How inactive are you in your child’s life to not know that they’re wearing makeup and skimpy outfits about the town, and coming home late from the SIXTH grade. Some charges need to be bought on them too.

@NaijaPuertoDorian: I agree about the parents!
I just think it’s crazy that a town (probably overexaggerated by this article) is torn apart by the rape of an 11 year old. I can understand supporting someone who committed a rape, but don’t blame the victim while doing it!
