Gang Bang Rapers Of A 15 Year Old California Girl Should Be Punished To The Maximum If Convicted!


Rape is not cool. It is never a sign of manhood. It is never romantic. It is a crime for which the strictest punishment should follow. Six suspects have been arrested in connection with the gang rape of a 15-year-old girl on a Richmond, California high school campus. The crime itself is disgusting. Jose Carlos Montano, 18, has been charged with felony rape, rape in concert with force, and penetration with a foreign object.


Montano's bail has been set at $1.3 million. Police hypothesize that as many as 10 people were involved in the back alley rape while another 10 watched without calling 911. Hopefully, prosecution for those who failed to stop the attach will follow. The 15 year old girl was taken to the hospital in critical condition. Fortunately, she received excellent care and has recently been discharged from the hospital.

This was a cowardly gang rape. Four other teens were arraigned Thursday on charges connected to the rape. Cody Ray Smith, "older than 14," pleaded not guilty to charges of rape with a foreign object and rape by force. Ari Abdallah Morales and Marcelles James Peter, appeared with Smith but did not enter a plea. All three juveniles wore bulletproof vests at the hearing. All have been charged as adults.

Manuel Ortega, 19, appeared separately and did not enter a plea. He did not wear a protective vest. Another person, Salvador Rodriguez, 21, has also been arrested.


IF CONVICTED, THE MAXIMUM PENALTY ALLOWABLE BY LAW NEEDS TO BE ENTERED SO AS TO DETER OTHER KIDS FROM THINKING GANG BANG RAPE IS "COOL."

All suspects are to be presumed innocent until otherwise proven.

Update 3-8-11: Gang rape has become all too common. In Texas, thirteen adults and five juveniles have been arrested as part of an investigation into the alleged rape of a Texas girl. The Cleveland, Texas, police department is continuing to investigate the incident. According to CNN, more people of interest may be interviewed. The 18 individuals charged so far are apparently between 14 and 27 years old. Four students in the Cleveland Independent school district had been arrested on charges of aggravated sexual assault of a child under 14. However, not all suspects are students at Cleveland High School.
Mike Little, the district attorney in Liberty County, indicated that more people may be charged. CNN affiliate KHOU, reported that the female victim may have been only 11 years old.
Keep in mind that some of the people charged may be innocent. Those over the age of eighteen could be tried for sexual abuse of a child, a first-degree felony in Texas. If convicted, one could face 25 year to life in prison.
Allegations and charges are not convictions. A person is presumed innocent unless otherwise proven in a court of law.

This is so true! Kids need to wake up by seeing others serve life in prison.

Hard to argue otherwise.

Police initially said about six young men were involved in the attack. But investigators now say as many as 10 assailants, ranging in age from 15 to their early 20s, committed a "slew of crimes" against the girl. Crimes include rape and stealing her jewelry. The young men apparently laughed and shot photos as they "took turns."
There is a $20,000 reward for information leading to the conviction of any of the assailants.

I don't care how old these morons are...Life without the possibility of parole.
And YES...let them get raped over and over again.

I still think mandatory chemical or surgical castration for convicted rapists are appropriate. If your hand causes you to sin, cut it off, for it is better to enter the kingdom of heaven...

Life without possibility of parole. What about the spectators that did nothing to help this girl?

Spectators who just stood and watched it happen need to also be prosecuted.

Kids! Gang banging is not consensual sex. It doesn't make you a man to tag along. It just makes you a criminal punk.

Life without parole could give gang bangers a long time to think about proper decorum.

At some point, kids need to be taught responsibility for their actions.
