How Richmond, CA is responding to the gang rape

I feel like this is all I’m covering at the moment, but this has become at least transnational news, if not international news. This incident has rocked a lot of people and and the Richmond community itself. Personally, I am hoping that this incident will bring a huge amount of light to the horrible situation of ALL violence against women and girls, whether that be rape, domestic violence, sexual abuse…and the list could go on. This is a serious issue. These issues deserve to be heard and need to be heard.

Here is a video of a rally in Richmond, CA.

    Is death penalty applicable for rapists? If so, give these rapist the death penalty as we believe that these accused rapist (both adults & jeveniles) will get away with the stiff penalty away. We also don’t believe that life in prison will do justice as for sure they will be pardoned early and they will rape again, if not will commit murder.

    I don’t believe that the death penalty is applicable to rapist, unless of course, they kill their victim. However, I’m not from the States, so I might not be the best to ask!

    There is no denying that what they did was disgusting and horrendous. I consider it to be the worst crime committed against a woman – especially in this situation. No doubt I believe they should get a life sentence, but my cynical nature towards the justice system makes me worried that they won’t get the punishment they deserve.

    Arlene do you want your child to be given the death penalty??
    you are sick.

    as a Father being from the Bay Area it makes you really question what was it that turned this other males “human emotion” off and commit such a crime. along with the psyche of the other perpetrators and on-looker’s.

    I blame the media for placing this semi-fiction image of what a “female” is.
    I blame the West Contra Costa Unified School District for not doing it’s job.
    and I blame those liquor stores which are in such close to that school.
