This is where my wife is from and it is a shame that places such as this try to cover up these events. The leaders of the School a long with others were trying to sweep this under the rug because those involved were star football players for the local High School. The girl that was gang raped was 16 and passed out drunk. Shows you the class of kids these are. The video at the end of the article is 12 minutes and makes one sick. The kid admits to raping her among other things.

I myself give the hackers a .....+1...... for what they did.

Last month's brutal gang rape of a young woman in the Indian capital, Delhi, has caught public attention and caused worldwide outrage. But here, the BBC's Geeta Pandey in Delhi recalls other prominent cases which made the headlines, then faded from public memory.

continues here...its rather long but quite shocking....

The article ends with...

But campaigners say laws alone may not be able to solve the problem in a society which treats its women as "second-class citizens" and regards them inferior to men.

They say until social attitudes change and women are respected and treated as equals, the gains from the protests will be shortlived.


Isn't it a case though of ALL rapists treating women as a second class citizen, an object, someone unworthy of even basic respect?

Rapists get away with it most of the time and often because a Judge is male. There would be a huge outcry if as many victims were men. THEN laws would change!

One solution is installing CCTV cameras in every bus in New Delhi to hold criminals on buses accountable for their actions but in this rape case, even the driver joined in, which was why nobody stopped it and all of those thugs involved should face the death penalty. India's caste system is another problem and victims are overwhelmingly low-caste women who are treated with disrespect by Indian society and high-caste men can evade a rape conviction.

Though this was not covered up. The story I presented the Football coach along with a few other people tried to cover the incident up. The only saving grace were rumors. The hackers apparently got wind of the rumors and hacked files and computers to get the video out to the public.

Had they not done that the girl may never had her day in court so to speak. The town is very much a football town and their High School team is their pride and joy. SO for this to come out and the name of those who covered up to come out is really bad for this community. Though I am glad it did come out because it is not right to cover such an incident up.

It would have been Penn State but for a high school had they been able to keep it from being discovered.
