FULL TITLE:

Two high school football stars, 18, charged with sexually assaulting girl, 13, who classmates are now calling a 'snitch' and a 'whore' on social media

A pair of high school footballers in Connecticut have been charged with sexually assaulting a 13-year-old girl, just days after two star players in Steubenville, Ohio, were convicted of rape in a case that shook the nation.

Torrington High School football players Edgar Gonzalez and Joan Toribio, both 18, are accused of felony second-degree sexual assault and other crimes in an investigation that began last month. Both have pleaded not guilty.

Since the alleged abuse, the young victim, who hasn't been named, has been taunted on social media sites by dozens of classmates who are upset at the claims against the football stars.

The victim has been called a 'whore,' criticized for 'snitching' and blamed for 'ruining' the players' lives.

One Twitter user wrote: 'Young girls acting like whores there's no punishment for that young boys acting like boys is a sentence.'

I have come to the conclusion that HS football players think rape is okay.

I cannot understand the kids in this school taking up for a couple of low-lifes.

If their lives are ruined it is themselves that ruined it.

It could also be the result of liberals who have completely commandeered education, and are now teaching kids sexual perversion at an early age.

It was just reported in the local paper that a 17 yo HS student here (and possibly 2 others) are accused of raping a 14 yo girl in a car between the JV basketball game and the Varsity basketball game at the HS gym. THe rape was oral sex (thtank you Bill Clinton.)

This is after another case was settled that occured a year ago concerning a 15 yo girl and 3 football players in the HS band room between classes. The girl moved out of state and the boys got very light sentences. Community service and a couple of months in jail, or probation. I forget which.

This is a very nice, upscale, community.

Long tradition of treating football players as something special, above the rules that apply to other students.

And so do most of their fans. Players and coaches think they can do anything but it's their fans that defend them.

My guess this is do to a confluence of items: Pornography, Light sentencing, and decreased or eliminated moral standards at home and in schools.

Sandra Fluke and Barack Obama are silent. No phone calls of support for the girl or condemnations of those at the school.

The liberal war on women continues.

No kidding. If it weren’t for the British press, we would know even less about the American atrocities that go on here.

We sure ain’t gonna find out the truth from our own media.

Especially race crimes.

Better than putting them in jail: turn them into eunuchs*! If you don’t have the plumbing, you can’t do the crime. [*A eunuch is a castrated human male: a man or boy whose testicles have been removed or do not function. Formerly, eunuchs were sometimes employed to guard the women of a harem or as court officials.]

This behavior crosses all racial lines. I think the youth are basically living according to what the culture has told them - specifically, as you said, that they are animals and can never be expected to control their animal urges and thus society should just make sure that they can follow their urges safely and without consequence. I wonder if these guys learned their “technique” in sex ed class. I wonder if they just did what their rap music suggested.

Rather than chains, maybe the “gun control” logic should be suggested: that since the male anatomy CAN be used to inflict harm, it needs to be banned...

While I agree with your statement, in this instance, the woman was a girl of 13. Hardly someone that should be carrying a sidearm.

Well, thank goodness the government has kicked God and prayer out of their schools. These young rapists are just expressing their sexual urges, not that there’s anything wrong with that. They’ve probably been watching porn since they were 8 or 10 years old, which is very common.

I understand that. I didn’t specifically mean this girl, but that as our culture continues to pervert the minds of young men, our women could be in even more danger of rape.

That's a gross generalization! Both of my sons played HS football, as I did and their grandfather did and none of us are rapists!

The key words are “high school football stars”. If they weren’t they would be in jail. Disgusting but the reality of sports these days.

Sexual orientation of children, society non-morals agenda, and lack of parenting all pointing these youths to commit no limits on behavior acted against others without any forethought what so ever...At the moment, these kids (and what they did so wrong and should be thoroughly punished) think that behavior has no consequences...even these young girls that are socially inadequate are being led into dangerous situations by animals ready to pounce - and have no idea or want to believe this is going to happen...fake self-esteem - social media like Facebook and Twitter - all contribute but are not the sole blame...removing kids from public schools into home schooling until the education institutions are reformed to include punishment, morals (Bible), and other conservative thinking to include the appreciation of others rights that do not include SEX as a main right....there are so many contributors to these acts and it all comes down to some socialist agenda of devaluing freedoms over some stupid form of expression...unbelievable.......

In the case here, the girl was in a car with 3 boys, although she reportedly “only” performed oral sex on one of them.

I can’t even imagine this happening in my days in HS. If sex ever happened (and a couple of girls were pregnant at graduation — out of a class of 600) it would have been VERY private — certainly not a group activity!

A star player on my HS baseball team eloped with a cheerleader on graduation night and got married, to everyone’s shock. Everyone defended her against the rumors that she probably was pregnant until the baby was born in October. We just couldn’t imagine that the 2 of them had done such a thing.

The marriage lasted through 3 children, and then they divorced. She went on to head the local TV station and to be a business consultant. Nobody has ever heard of him again.

What has happened to the innocence of our children? I blame omnipresent sex themes in movies and on TV and easily available birth control. Plus a culture of entitlement that our children assume too easily.

was it forcible or statutory? is going to be my first question.

part of the problem is fashion. the fashion industry is pushing to outfit girls to look like prostitutes at younger and younger ages, and it seems that girls are developing earlier. add in the earlier age of forced sex education, these girls think they’re ready.

(i’m not making excuses for the boys, but it is a contributing factor)

ANOTHER REASON TO HOMESCHOOL

This ping list is for the “other” articles of interest to homeschoolers about education and public school. This can occasionally be a fairly high volume list. Articles pinged to the Another Reason to Homeschool List will be given the keyword of ARTH. (If I remember. If I forget, please feel free to add it yourself)

The main Homeschool Ping List handles the homeschool-specific articles. I hold both the Homeschool Ping List and the Another Reason to Homeschool Ping list. Please freepmail me to let me know if you would like to be added to or removed from either list, or both.

This kind of stuff was going on in the 70’s, the 80’s and the 90’s. These atheletes are made to feel that they are entitled and can do what they want so they do. The real problem never gets addressed.
