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.
