En 14-årig pige blev sidste år voldtaget af ikke færre end ni store drenge, som nu har fået deres straf:
A judge yesterday attacked the gang culture that led to the repeated rape of a 14-year-old girl by a group of nine teenagers as a "punishment" for insulting their leader.
The victim faced threats she would be stabbed, and was hit, spat on and orally raped at least 12 times as she was dragged by her hair around the stairwells of three tower blocks in east London, Snaresbrook crown court heard.
More members of Hackney's Kingzhold Boys gang, some as young as 13, were summoned by mobile phone and laughed and egged each other on as they took turns to assault the girl in April 2007. Some filmed parts of the incident.
The court heard that the gang's leader O'Neil Denton, nicknamed Hitman, and Weiled Ibrahim, Yusuf Raymond and Jayden Ryan set upon on the victim as she walked home one night and began the assaults because she had told Denton's girlfriend she thought he was "ugly".
Joseph [dommeren] said she was also concerned by the attitude of Ryan, who had shown "no remorse whatsoever". When questioned by a psychologist about how the victim would have felt, he said: "It's not a problem for most girls to be raped."
Heldigvis var diverse fædregrupper og imamer klar til at sætte knægtene på plads, for det kan de jo gøre meget bedre end politi og anklagemyndigheder:
Above the teenagers were more senior "olders" whom they emulated and expected "to sort things out", rather than the police.
En indsats, der dog ikke imponerede den britiske dommer, som idømte drengene nogle ret så alvorlige, og IMHO velfortjente domme:
Raymond, 16, received a nine-year sentence and Ryan, 16, got eight years, both for the same charges as Denton. Alexander Vanderpuije, 15, Jack Bartle, 16, and Cleon Brown, 15, each received six-year sentences for rape and false imprisonment.
A 14-year-old and a 16-year-old, who cannot be named, got two years and five months in secure local authority accommodation and three years and nine months respectively.
Bemærk blandingen af engelske og, hmm, udenlandske, navne i banden. Måske er det det, der menes med "integration."
En britisk kriminalkommisær bliver interviewet i radioen her. Gudskelov kan han berolige offentligheden med, at den slags gang-rapes er "extremely rare". Ganske vist er antallet af anmeldte voldtægter i London steget med 60 procent, men det er nok fordi kvinder er blevet mere tilbøjelige til at brokke sig over den slags bagateller.
