    Gang Rape at Rave in B.C.

    This story is increasing emotion not only in B.C. but around the world:

    Teen charged over photos of gang rape at rave: Police - Yahoo! Canada News

    Pictures of an alleged gang rape are “spreading like wildfire” over the cellphones and computers of teens who attended a chaotic party in Pitt Meadows Friday night.

    According to police, the girl and several friends attended the party Friday night on a rural property on Harris Road. During the party, the girl was allegedly drugged, taken outside and then raped by a group of five to seven young men. She suffered “significant injuries” during the attack, while another group of youth simply watched.

    A 16-year-old boy who was present for upwards of 20 minutes allegedly took photos of the rape, then shared them with friends by cellphone. They were eventually posted on the social-networking site Facebook.

    "Preteens who were shown these graphic photos came home crying to their parents because they’d seen something so appalling,” said Sgt. Jennifer Hyland, adding police consider the photos to be child pornography.

    “They have been viewed, shared, saved and re-posted numerous times ... Speaking as a woman, I cannot even imagine what this young girl is going through and has to live with.


    “[The situation] is disgusting, morally corrupt and criminal.”
    On Facebook Thursday afternoon, it was apparent some teens disagreed, with some making jokes about Pitt Meadow’s bad reputation.


    “If you knew the true story you would find it funny...” wrote a young man who graduated from Pitt Meadows Secondary last spring. The Province has chosen not to report some of the other comments being made.

    Absolutely shocking!
    Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.


    True love is wanting to give to another person without any thought about
    who’s getting the better of the deal.

    It is absolutely shocking. The girl's life is in tatters, and the only thing she can do is move to the other side of the country, since half of B.C., now probably has seen the pictures.

    Not to take away from this horrific thing, but I fail to see how a "normal" society can produce such disgusting behavior? Where is the awareness amongst these children, and even more importantly their parents, that these things can spread like this?

    As near as I can tell, the teen who took the pictures is facing charges but what about everyone else who was there and did nothing? If you ask me, anyone who stood idly by and let this happen is a criminal and the ONLY way that justice will be served is if they all are brought up on criminal charges.

    The problem with that is quite a few people are legally minors. Thus prosecuting them for this offense is difficult (not interfering).

    The fact that they are minors has to be taken into account, but generally people who commit criminal offences are prosecuted, even if they are minors. There is a law by which bystanders are also prosecuted (common purpose). It depends on what they were doing as bystanders. If they didn't know it was going to happen and they were saying nothing, then there's little to be done. But in cases where there is evidence that bystanders knew about planned criminal activity or were commenting on the events in such a way as to condone or encourage, then they can be prosecuted for the same offence even if they didn't actually commit it.

    In a similar case I am aware of here, the victim (many years later) is still referred to locally in a manner which indicates that some people view it as a consenting act, rather than rape. As with child abuse where there is wider involvement that just one person, it can be very difficult for people affected by such things to break free of the damage, not just because of the trauma of the crime and it's after effects, but also because there is a sub culture of sick people out there who condone such things. It skews the victim's whole assessment of what people are like and how they are likely to act towards them in future.

    I could care less if their minors; they all know the difference between right and wrong and chose to ignore it for whatever reason. This is just another example of soft laws that do nothing to prohibit this type of abhorrent behavior.

    I bet you if you just saw one of these idiots executed for the crime, other minors would think twice about ever getting involved in something as horrific as this.

    I bet it would stop happening as much if they had Forced Castration, to prevent future sex offences. To ALL INVOLVED... except the victim.

    If they want to act like animals... then they should be treated like animals.
