Girl 'gang-raped by 20 men when she was 11 sobs in court as she's shown video of horrific ordeal
Daily Mail UK ^ | 29 August 2012

Posted on 08/29/2012 9:00:11 PM PDT by Lorianne

A 13-year-old Texas girl who was repeatedly gang-raped by 20 males when she was just 11 broke down in court today as she watched a video of one of the horrific attacks.

The girl, who authorities haven't named, is testifying against Eric McGowen, 20, in the first trial stemming from the shocking case, which involved the 'pack of animals' raping her sometimes two at a time, anally and with a beer bottle.

McGowen is among 14 adults accused of sexually assaulting the girl in the series of horrendous attacks that took place in the small Texas community of Cleveland, 45 miles from Houston, over four months in 2010.

It seems to have some pretty diverse media coverage here.

Forget (for a moment) about whether pregnancy occurs because of forcible rape.

Ask instead:

Under which political party is rape (pregnancy aside) more likely to occur in the first place?

Is the girl caucasion? All the suspects pictured in the article were not.

In any event, the race of the suspects may explain why it’s not gotten any coverage...

One would think adults would know better, but then again it was 20 “adults” that raped the poor child.

Probably fatherless.

Many young girls, who have no fathers will give it up for male attention.

Again the Obamanites show the world that they are below animals. Good thing this didn’t happen at a public school... Obama has made it illegal to punish the black animals for anything that they do.
death is to good for these bass-turds.

She was not a prisoner. She was an eleven year old girl being systematically abused by a group of animals. Eleven year olds can not consent to ANY sexual activity. The animals that raped her are disgusting and I am sure she will forever be traumatized by this experience.

“Excuse my language, but why the hell would they make her watch the video?”

To get her verification in evidence that she was the victim, she remembers and recognizes the offender(s), and yes, that is him/them over there wearing orange jumpsuits/the coat and tie.

That stuff. Trials are often ugly for all concerned.

Also, some prosecutors like to elicit emotional stress from victims as it usually results in a near lock on a conviction. From the description, this is a case where that tactic would be justified. This kind of entertainment abuse could easily escalate into homicide, and has in some cases. Snuff porn has a market.

I think this is (primarily) a statutory rape case. Although is sounds like forcible rape also took place (a really horrendous case).

An 11 year is always considered legally incompetent to consent to having sex--hence in law whether she consents at all or not, it is considered rape.

(One reason why Mohammed--like these guys--was a pedophile AND a rapist...)

She is Hispanic and may have feared INS more than rape. The rapists (which included several juveniles) were spreading a phone video around school and another child reported them. The victim never went to police, they had to go to her.

Defendant In Texas Rape Case Disappears From Trial

"The case also has been complicated by a belief among many in the predominantly black neighborhood where several of the suspects live that the arrests were racially motivated. All of the suspects are black, while the girl is Hispanic."

The arrests were racially motivated? They didn't arrest the Hispanic and White rapists?

Oh! There weren't any!

It's racist to hold Black males responsible for anything.

In a sane, just, amd decent world, these animals would have already swung. There would have been many fathers from the community to ensure it. Of course in that world, they would have been afraid to do this.

It’s my understanding that some of the animals actually called other of the animals to come participate in raping this child. Not ONE of them saw fit to be appalled and call the police instead of joining in.

I don’t know a man in my family who wouldn’t have just made up his mind that he’d be doing time for executing these animals.

Saying that, I must ask, where were her parents?

If we were waiting for the appropriate time and crime to start acting like we are serious, the time is now and this is the case.

Once upon a time, this would lead to a public hanging in the town square, immediately after the verdicts, assuming any lived long enough for the trial.

Would that be more cruel than what they did? Not much of a recidivism rate the old way.

US media doesn’t report black on white Hispanic crime.

An interview with some relatives of the victim said she dressed sexy and was asking for it.

HIV is spread more rapidly in minority populations because anal sex is how some put their woman “in their place.”. That and prison sex.

From the comments at the link. I ripped the jerk! Please do the same!

“I can’t help but think of a Republican America where we are led by people who would test whether this was “legitimate” and declare that her system would shut down so she could not get pregnant” and then, worse yet, if she had become pregnant, would be forced to be a baby with a baby, thereby thoroughly destroying any chance she would have at recovering and living a fulfilling life. We need to think carefully about our vote in this election to ensure that this young woman and others are not victimized by these animals and then again by an old-man system.”

Yes, and this is the community where the scumbag ex-felon Quanell X of the Black Panthers came with some of his scumbag group and protested “racism” because it’s racist to not allow black men to rape 11yo old girls and get away with it. The hate I have for his type makes my blood pressure go through the roof. Now it’s a snivel right to rape babies who should be home playing with jump ropes?

Some of those ‘brotha’ gang bangers look downright sickening. Poor girl, so what do they do in court? Give her the pseudonym ‘Regina’. GO FIGURE. They probably had her watch the video in court to evoke sympathy from the jurors..

I hope when these animals are found guilty and sentenced, they get a taste every single day of their sentence of eveything they did to this girl. I don't know how she can ever recover from this. Only God knows. It will be a miracle if she doesn't have HIV or other STD, considering the rate of both in the black community. This mess has GOT to come to an end, it is out of hand, it's past being out of hand. The interracial rape rates-black on white or other-are astronomical, the white on black rate is infinitesimal.

Park this outside the open/barred windows of the maggots' holding cells .. feed one in per day, one inch at at time .. at dawn, rinse/repeat.

I volunteer to hit the switch for the duration, and hose out the gear til the job's done.

Here is the best part. This idiot McGowen left court after lunch and never came back. He skipped on his bond.

He had bail of $35,000. Some knucklehead bail bondsman wrote a bond on this Jackwaggon for a $3,500. payment. Even worse, an idiot judge gave this savage, accused of multiple counts of child rape a low bond.
