Posted on 03/10/2011 4:52:23 PM PST by KansasGirl
The alleged gang rape of an 11-year-old girl by at least 18 boys and young men has sparked shame and outrage in a tiny Texas town, but it has also stirred racial tensions that threaten to split the East Texas hamlet...
The rape allegedly occurred last November, and the list of suspects has been growing as arrests keep coming. It's not clear whether more arrests are in the works.
The suspects range in age from 14 to 26, include stars on the high school's basketball team as well as the son of a school board member...
"Every adult male that had sex with this child should go to prison, I don't care what the color is. But I do not believe black males are the only ones that had contact with this young child," said Quanell X, the leader of Houston's New Black Panther Party. "It appears to me there's only been the selective prosecution of one community, which is African American." ...
In addition, Cleveland is embroiled in a political scandal where three city council members are facing a recall election following complaints of corruption. All three of those city council members are African American....
Cleveland police began investigating the rape in December of last year after cell phone video showing the alleged sex attack started circulating among students at Cleveland schools, according to court documents. The video shows the girl engaged in sexual acts with several men.

That is only 6 of them, they’re are twelve more.
Was the 11 yr old a white girl?
My God. What the hell is wrong with people?
[”I feel sorry for the little girl. I feel sorry for everyone involved...the city is in turmoil,” Inez Dickerson said]
I feel sorry for the 11 year-old victim, not everyone involved! The perpetrators are not victims, they are barbarians!
Does it matter?
When will these losers ever put honor and decency above race and color???
Quanell X has no right to bring race into the equation if the perps committed the crime and were arrested and will have to stand trial.
A crime is a crime and the guilty parties must be punished.
No, she was hispanic!

This idiot is more delusional than Obama.
Got any evidence for that claim, Quanell? Or is it just your "belief"? ...kind of like your belief in Farrakhan's Mothership.
11-year-old child. Gang rape. God in heaven.
I read the article and many of the comments.
I’m appalled this girl got into a vehicle with three men. She should have known better, and if she knew she shouldn’t have done so, has paid a heavy price for her mistake.
As to the men and boys who raped her, in Texas this is a capital crime. In a small town like this of about 8,000 people, this is splitting the town wide open.
Hispanic. Is that relevant?
There is video which was used to identify the rapists. Apparently, they took video with their cell phones and were showing it at school!
I hoe that someday this poor child is able to overcome what these sick bastards did to her.
hoe = hope!
Let’s hope the men of this town take matters into their own hands and hang these animals.
I’m confused as to why this story involves a gang rape in Texas, and some instance of political corruption in Cleveland? What is the connection?
Race is irrelevant, there is something mentally and morally deficient with evey male involved in this. Long prison sentences aren’t likely to make them fit to live in society, this should be a capital case.
From the article:
“All of the defendants arrested are African-American and the girl is Hispanic”
The penalty for getting into a car as a child should not be rape. Kill the bastards.
PEr the article:
The hardscrabble town of Cleveland, which is 45 miles from Houston, has fewer than 8,000 residents and since the saw mill closed the biggest employers are Wal-Mart and a nearby prison. In a town this small, everyone is a neighbor, but that small town ambience is being severely strained.
Same town, the rape and political corruption both happened in Cleveland TX.
It is my view that your position is a "blame the victim" position. Regardless of whether this "CHILD" should have known better, there is absolutely no defense of MEN treating an 11 year old child in this manner. Making such a statement as ". . . has paid a heavy price . . . " is IMHO shameful.

I got the rope.
To heck with the rope. Bring the log chain.
the nighttime, sniffling, sneezing, aching, coughing, stuffy-head, fever, so you can rest name.
Well, crap. I didn’t realize there was a place in Texas called Cleveland.
If y’all remember back a few years ago, a kid was set on fire in splendora texas, cleveland is just down the road a piece, not to mention plumb grove also in that area. I don’t know how to explain it folks but that area just ain’t right for child rearin.I make jokes about a coworker that lives in cleveland, it is apalacia in texas.
I’m NOT blaming the victim. She needs a lot of support at this point and is lucky to be alive. As a victim of a sexual assault by a senior NCO while in the military, I know what I’m talking about. In the future she’ll be careful about who she trusts.
And I don’t respect your opinion, period, as you didn’t carefully read my post. The rapists will be up for execution if found guilty of rape. Since so many of them recorded their ‘acts’ and showed the results to acquaintances, there is bound to a lot of executions.
They believe there are up to 28 involved. 2 arrested are college basketball players. The family and the girl are receiving threats. This is a disgusting crime. Prayers for that child, may Gods love heal her.
Holder’s people.....move along, nothing to see here... move along.
Ok, which FReeper posted this on the news site?
“So now if black people commit a crime and are arrested it is suddenly racism? Are the cops supposed to arrest a token white guy for every black guy just to appease the black community? Unless there is evidence that a white guy was involved in the rape but not arrested, be quiet. That race card is getting pretty worn out when you try to make black rapists the victims.”
Well, guess what? I really don’t care if you respect my opinion. I read your post, and I understood what you were stating - that the child was at fault for not making a better choice than to enter a vehicle with adult males inside. You’re the one with the problem here, not I. You should feel ashamed for making that comment, and I am appalled that you went to that place.
Why do they believe there are up to 28 involved? Have they identified that many from videos and pictures? Or did their accomplices rat them out? Why have the other 10 not being arrested.
And unfortunately has shown up on P2P.
“My God. What the hell is wrong with people?”
They generally have an IQ of around 85 and have been taught since their earliest years that they are special, this being reinforced by their families. They can’t think beyond the moment, especially the males.
It’s a sad thing but we are responsible.
She probably knew them and thought it was ok. She is a child, children are trusting of those they know.
Toheck with the rope and log cabin — bring on the armalite.
You know, not too many weeks ago I tried to watch a movie on Netflix with my husband. Samuel L. Jackson played in it, but the title of it escapes me at the moment. I kept turning my head and finally left the room because of the violence in the movie. I tried to watch it, but just couldnt. Just too gory for me.
Now I find myself wishing that the character were real and here now to avenge the evil perpetrated on this child. I could darn well do it myself given the opportunity.
The scar she will have to carry for the rest of her life will run deep and her world will forever be marred by this ... this ... barbaric act. Words just fail me.
May God in His mercy fade the memory day by day until its only a blur for the little girl and grant her a special joy to override such an horrific deed.
The evil, evil, evil, eeeevil bastards. The lot of them.
And who the hell was Quanell IX???
I read it in another article. Here’s the link.
You really are naieve arn’t you.I doubt thats the way it went down. Just my two cents worth, but, we are talking about Cleveland Texas, right! This is the kind of place where you don’t go down to the local feed store and try to blend in when you are not from there.
Does it matter?
Quanell X is a real piece of work. Quanell IX has a lot to answer for.
