Where can you possibly begin with creating an opinion on such a heinous act? Rape remains one of the most vile of crimes any human being could possibly inflict upon another; it is a crime where the victim is never able to truly escape and condemns them to a lifetime of asking what they could have done to prevent such a violation.
The questions currently being asked by the public is how any child, and these are children, could ever conceive inflicting such violence upon another human being; especially when considering that these two girls not only beat their victim but held her down whilst she was brutally raped.

Are these teenagers mentally disturbed? Are the parents at fault? That is, where were they and what sort of upbringing did they have?
These and many other questions will unfold as the prosecutors set about doing their job but once again, modern society and it’s values are going to be called into question.
We doubt anyone would argue that society, since the movement of liberalisation started in the early 60s, has become more violent.
The 60s was seen as a time of being free, free from the constraints of society and society’s views on what our lives should be and how we conduct ourselves; it appears that with the liberal movement we have become selfish, that the needs of others is inconsequential and whereby we have almost become unaccountable for our acts or omissions.
Of course some will lay an element of blame on the violent movies and worse the ever increasing violent video games.
Move on from these aspects and you have the internet and the increasing number of cases being reported of teenage bullying online.
Such a disturbing trend is due, to some beliefs’, that the user’s ability to remain anonymous is to blame; it’s as if society has now discovered a tool that allows them to become truly unaccountable for any activities they engage in.
What is concerning here is the fact that the rape was recorded on a cell phone in order to have a permanent record of the event; some are suggesting that the video could have been uploaded to the social networks in order to maximise the pain and physiological damage inflicted on their victim.
The issues surrounding this particular case must be explored if we are to determine the cause and therefore take measures to stamp out such crime.
As for those involved in the crime, it appears clear that each and every one of them knew exactly what they were doing and at meebal.com our stance remains crystal clear that crimes such as murder and indeed rape should have no other recourse in law other than the death penalty; regardless of the perpetrator’s age.
To many, considering the young ages of these girls and boys, such a suggestion might seem cruel, uncaring and yes even inhumane but there again, so was the crime they allegedly committed and if found guilty the punishment should fit the crime to ensure that they are never able to harm another human being.
Our sympathy will always remain with the victim and in this case the young girl who was so viciously beaten and raped for she will carry the burden of her memories until the end; a fact that most people appear to overlook when passing judgment on the criminals.
