The Rape of the “Unnamed Girl.”

The Rape of the “Unnamed Girl.”

All human beings are sacred gifts from God; America has lost this truth.

Our people are no longer people – they are nouns who are categorized and labeled to the point of a “dead identity”.  There is a grave danger in subscribing to a filing system for human beings.  It cunningly creates a disconnect between us and an actual living breathing human being who is full of love, sorrow and history.  It reduces God’s most precious creation to the attributes of their labels – mere words on a page.

For example:  when a minor is involved in a sexual abuse case, it is customary for the authorities and the media to label the victim as the “unnamed boy/girl.”  I realize that this protocol is to protect the identity of the child, but how well are we really protecting our young?

Last November in a “blue house” and then in an abandoned trailer in Cleveland, Texas, an unnamed eleven-year-old girl was repeatedly gang raped by an undetermined number of men whose ages ranged from fourteen to twenty-seven.  After, this “outgoing” middle school girl, described as a straight-A student, said nothing.  It was only after a video and several images surfaced that an investigation, first led by the school and then by police, was undertaken.  Since that time, eighteen men have been arrested and an attorney for the case says that as many as twenty-eight could be charged.

Let me say that again:  so far, eighteen men have been accused of repeatedly raping one unnamed eleven-year-old girl and, in an uncanny display of ego, these bastards filmed and photographed their demonic brutality on cell phones and posted it on the internet.

One would assume that the community would naturally envelop this unnamed child and her family.  One would assume that the community would rage against the men who destroyed this unnamed girl’s relationship with men, sex, herself, her body and her world for the rest of her life.  One would assume that the community would place blame appropriately and relentlessly seek justice for all.  Sadly, one would assume wrong.

It appears that many in Cleveland are outraged that their men (whose backgrounds range from two star athletes to the son of a school board member to a drug dealer) are being held accountable for their actions.  It appears that many in the community believe that the unnamed girl had the gang-rape coming to her because of the way she dressed, what she posted on her Facebook page and that she (as a MINOR) was a willing participant.

So, after repeated death threats, the community has won:  the unnamed girl has been removed from her family.  For her “protection”, she has also been placed on “restricted contact” with the only support system that she has ever known and has been placed in foster care because the authorities fear for her safety.

Or, do the authorities fear those who we are allowed to name?

On March 12, 2011 the leader of the New Black Panther Party of Houston, Texas, Quanell X,  staged a self-serving, fame-whoring demonstration where, to a jeering crowd, was quoted as saying:

“She lives in another community.  You mean to tell me that the only men who had sex with that girl were black men, locked up in that jail?  It was not the young girl that yelled rape. Stop right there — something is wrong, brothers and sisters. . .Where was the mother? Where was the father?”

Mr. X even took up a collection to help pay for the legal fees of several of the accused.

Let me begin by setting the story back on course. This case has nothing to do with the label of race and those who have allowed the facts to be distracted by race should be ashamed of themselves.   This is a case (with photographic and video evidence) of rape, child molestation, abuse and a mind-blowing lack of a conscience.  This little unnamed HISPANIC girl and her family are living in a state of constant fear because the system has been bullied by labels, rhetoric and guilt.

I have a few words:

To We the People:  this girl has a name.  She is your daughter, your mother, your sister, your aunt, your cousin and/or your friend.  She has the same name of every woman you know and love.  She breathes, fears, loves, cries, screams and bleeds.  If the media insists on using a disconnected label, then we as a people must FIND a way to connect to this young girl.  A connection is the only way to right this savage wrong.

To Cleveland, Texas:  you know this child’s name.  I don’t care if she was walking around naked in a pair of stilettos at 3am, your men should have kept it in their pants – NO ONE deserves this level of carnage.  She was 11 and by law CANNOT be a willing participant.  How dare you blame her for your ignorance?  In no way is she at fault for your men’s lack of boundaries and utter disregard for women.  It is time to look in the mirror and consider how you are raising your young.

Help us, Lord.

To the young girl whose name is written on the palm of His hands:  I’m so sorry.  It was not your clothes, your smile, your body, your make-up or your Facebook page that are at fault in this case.  The fault lies solely on the men who yielded to their disgusting lust for an underage girl.  I’m so sorry that we as a nation have become so corrupt and weak that we were we unable to protect you from these monsters.  I’m sorry that your community lacks the courage to form a barrier between you and ignorance.  Take peace in knowing that you are worthy and that there are tens of thousands of us who stand by your side.  You are treasured in the eyes of God and your birthright is that of wholeness.  I pray for your recovery, your reunion with your family and – on my knees – I pray that justice prevails.

THINGS HAVE GOTTEN WORSE FOR THIS LITTLE GIRL AND HER FAMILY, PLEASE READ THE UPDATE TO LEARN HOW YOU CAN HELP!!  (OR, YOU MAY MAKE A DONATION THAT WILL GO DIRECTLY TO THE FAMILY BELOW.)

    1. You are a very brave girl. I know how hard it is to stand up to so many people. I understand why you did not come forward. Fear. Now you have people in your corner and you do not have to be afraid anymore. May God protect you and your family. Remember whatever doesn’t kill us makes us stronger It may be hard to understand why this happen but you will one day understand. I have been molested and God showed me that through my experiences I can help others.

  1. having worked as an advocate in an ER in Ohio I know that even doctors can take the attitude that if a young girl is out at night going to and from work or whatever she is doing, she is the one responsible for her rape. They are given classes and worked with explaining how these young women have every right to be out and not be molested and raped and yet they hold on to old boy beliefs that boys will be boys and girls should stay home, dress properly, etc. And I would guess it is even worse in Texas than it is in Ohio!

  2. this “leader” of any party is a hate-monger. he is clearing the guilty parties with nonsensical rhetoric. he should be put in her shoes for 15 minutes of her ordeal. i think he would be crying a different tune. at least i know he’d be crying, and that would be a start.

    stop playing the race card and play the human card, quanell x…if you still have a soul and are able to do so.

    1. This man and others that act and do the same things as he does to promote racial inequality are purely racist.
      Because they are of a different color than white, no one seems to care or call there bluff.
      This just goes to show you how screwed up our since of right and wrong has become in this country!
      My prayers are with the girl and her parents in this time of need.

  4. To the “unnamed girl”, her family and the Cleveland, TX community…I pray that justice is served and those who took away this beautiful little girl’s innocence be put away for a very long time. It is a travesty that in this, the twenty-first century, such barbaric assaults still occur…most horrific is that a community can turn against the innocent and place blame on them. For shame, people of Cleveland…for shame!

  5. There is never a time when “it’s the victims fault”! Anyone who is blaming that poor child for this horrendous crime should have to do time themselves for further victimizing her. Young lady, if you do read this, know that you are blessed in the eyes of the Goddess, none of this is your fault & there are many of us out here praying for you.

  6. I’m for human rights. I’m not religious. I know right from wrong. What these ‘people’ did to harm this young girl further is disgusting as a human being. You don’t treat children like this. In fact you don’t rape or abuse a man, women, child, elderly person, dog, cat, goldfish, whatever you have. As if they don’t exist and pat yourself on the back; only to think you have rights to treat people like crap. I hope these citizens of Cleveland read this. Its obvious they need a wake up call. We all do if these people can blame this child for wanting rape. Who wants to be harmed in this way? This poor little girl did nothing. I’m sure these men would have raped a grown woman wearing sneakers, a T-shirt and jeans. They just don’t care. Its evident that they are ignorant people. How disgusting. Thank you for writing this.

  7. This is one of the most horrendous things I’ve heard of in a long time. I have an 11 year old granddaughter and I KNOW 11 year olds are NOT women or able to consent to sex, but a child still full of innocence. Those men and the people who hide them should all pay for their crimes and be labeled sex offenders for the rest of their lives.

  12. Dearest Sweet Soul,

    I am SO sorry that this horrible and tragic event has happened to you. You are in my thoughts, prayers and meditations.
    My dear, I know what you are going through is hard. I have been there and have some idea of the horror. Keep your strength, hon. You must prosecute these terrible men to the fullest extent of the law. It’s going to be an ugly process. I know you are going through some of the ugliness of what others in your area are saying, but I am talking about the trial itself. I won’t lie to you. There will be some ugly things said, but you must brace yourself with all of the inner strength you can muster and you can get through it. Know that my love and peace go with you.

    Blessed Be!

  14. To the little girl who had to endure such suffering: My heart goes out to you and breaks for such tragedy and ignorance. I will pray for you and your family. I will also pray for justice to be swift and fair.

    Just remember, you are BEAUTIFUL–no matter what happened or what anybody says!!!!

    I wish I could put my arms around you and make you feel safe.

    Just remember, honey, God is with you.

    To the people of Cleavland, Texas: You should be ashamed of yourselves for even having these abusers in your own community and for defending them and blaming an innocent little girl for such a disgusting and tragic act!!!! Just know that they will get theirs, God remembers ALL of the evil in this world, so don’t think they will go unscathed in his eyes.

    Just know that I will NEVER visit your city, nor will any of my friends and family, and their friends as well and so on!!!!

    May God bless and have mercy on this little child, as she continues to grow and struggle with this horrific incident.

  15. I’ve also read some of the comments and find them astounding in their unusually narrow vision of the world. Somehow we’re supposed to give the guys a pass for, somehow, being in the wrong place at the wrong time, I guess… while the unnamed girl, who was also in the wrong place at the wrong time, has blame heaped on her not only by her own community but by people from outside it who *claim* to want to see intolerance and inequality shown the proverbial door… and then demonstrate their grasp of the concept by essentially blaming her for these guys being put in jail.

    What the hell is wrong with this country? How did we get so far off the tracks? And is it, as I’m starting to think, way too late to fix it? I honestly wonder.

  16. How destressing and disturbing that this could happen in our country!! Whatever happened to victim’s rights!
    All of the men should be castrated and spend the rest of their lives in solitary confinment!
    To the young women who suffered these atrocities; stay strong. Justice must prevail!!!

  17. As new generations come by, doesn’t it occur to anyone that maybe she was sexually active. I mean either way if she did have it coming for her by the way she dressed and all that stuff, wouldn’t you hint that she might as well be a prostate caught up in a ring of mafia or gang members. Blame whoever you guys want. They all deserve help in that community either that or hell.

    1. I’m a little confused by your post, are you suggesting that she was sexually active? Are you saying that if she was then she asked for it? Or are you saying that even if she was sexually active it makes no difference?

    2. it doesn’t matter if she was a hooker or a whore or a virgin, no one has the right to touch her she is a child and it revolts me that anyone would ever think any different. I don’t know about any of the families of the men accused thinking any different if it was there daughter, they sound like such sick bastards that they would think it was coming to them and blame there poor daughter, I hope these men get repeatedly gang raped in prison so they know what it is like and have to live with the out come . It isn’t only living threw it , it is living with it that is the hardest part. i hope you learn little girl and truly believe that this wasn’t your fault and you are a good person no matter what they said or did. THey are wrong and sick and had no right to do this to you and i hope you read what all these people wrote and know that just cause some sick people think it was ok most know that it isn’t. I send you well wishes and healing thoughts and love

    3. Joseph, no 11 year old girl can consent to have sex with older males. Some were as old as 27. This is rape, plain and simple. It is also pedophilia as she is just a child. I hope these “men” you speak of don’t get help. Unless the help comes in the form of a pair of pliars stuck to their genitals and have them yanked and twisted off, while they are held down by a huge gang of prison inmates who think they are “attractive”. Then after their genitals are gone, maybe they can become the “bitch” of ALL these HUGE prisoners.

      1. Advocating for men to be raped in prison contributes to a culture that supports rapes like the one discussed in this post. Once you suggest that a rapist should be raped you begin to allow that a rape victim could do something to deserve it. Rape is never deserved.

        Reply
        1. I agree. There is no excuse for rape. You are generating an environment of hate. There are other ways to punish evil doers. And just in case you are making assumptions about me, I have been sexually assaulted many times myself and never dressed or acted any way but modestly. The way people dress does not cause rape. The cause is in the mind and heart of the rapist.

  18. Thank you for standing up for this little girl. It is in no way, shape, or form her fault that she was raped by these males.

    It is disgusting that the community has treated this little girl in this manner while excusing the behavior of the males involved.

    May she find the continued support that she needs to get through this horrific ordeal. Be strong, little one. There are people in your corner.

  19. Quanell X – and everyone in the United States – needs to ask himself or herself: “What if this were my daughter?”

    Thank you for a well written column. These “men” (they don’t deserve the title) need to be locked up for many years. I pray that this poor child can find peace someday. She needs to be surrounded by the strenght of those who love her. That should include all of us. All of us who are civilized people, anyway.

  20. To the unamed girl,

    I can’t imagine what you have been through but I know that there are many people who can. You are not alone! Nothing anyone can say and nothing you have done or can do will make this unjustifiable crime your fault. It seems all who surround you have failed you but please know that you don’t have to fail yourself. Stay strong, you are clearly stronger than everyone around you. You are a survivor – keep your head up and know that me and others like me are on your side no matter what and we send our love to you and hope that you might feel it.

    You are worth it! Never forget and never give up.

  21. As a 34 year old woman & a mother i find this case utterly horrifying, the reaction of the community disgusts and repels me in equal measures. At 11 years old this little girl was hardly more than a baby, there is nothing she could possibly have done to invite these disgusting acts to be inflicted upon her. That people will actually stand up and condemn her, call into question her character, behavior & general disposition is just beyond all comprehension to me. If this beautiful child is reading this, or somebody she loves is showing her these messages, I would like to tell her that she has done nothing wrong & people around the world are praying for her recovery. Much love little one xxx

  22. I pray that these “boys” be locked up and hurt the same way this young child was.. I know where she has been to a point. I was raped at 13 by a boy in school with me, then again at 15 and again gang raped at 28 years old by 8 “boys” and I say boys for a reason.. if they were true men, they would respect a woman, period.. none of the rapes that I went through were my fault, but somehow I manged to blame myself.. because others told stories around town because of my past, I put myself in that situation, well guess what… even if I put myself in a dangerous spot, no one should have taken it that far. .after a woman/girl says no… they must RESPECT that word…and if they don’t it is rape! No ifs ands or buts!!! For the idiots out there that say other wise, until you are in our shoes you will NEVER understand what it feels like to experience that.. something that NO ONE should ever have to experience. To the little girl… I am so sorry you had to endure that… I don’t wish it upon anyone other then those who do it… my prayers are with you. You are a survivor and you will make it through this, one day, years down the road, you will be able to help someone who is going through this experience and be able to sympathize because you, yourself have experienced it. May God bless you and keep you where you need to be.. and I pray that you feel the love that we send you.. always and forever… keep that chin up.. its not your fault under any circumstances!!!

  23. It is disgusting to read not only what happened to this poor child, but also to read that we have such a corrupt system that would not do anything in its power to help and protect an innocent victim! You are right NO ONE asks for or deserves such vile treatment. I hope all these males (for they are not MEN) are prosecuted to the full extent of the law and never see the light of day again. God have mercy on all parties involved.

    1. Screw that, I hope God does NOT have mercy on them. They deserved to be prosecuted, and in fact, I believe they all need a taste of their own medicine. Men get raped in Prison A LOT. So my wish is for them to get raped in prison. They deserve it after raping an eleven year old girl.

  24. Only a part of the community failed this child! The part of the community where the young men came from failed her. They do not nor do they ever want to believe that they are at fault. And, as liberal as I am, the race card has been played and it was played by Quanell X. My original posts on Facebook questioned Mr. X. Could it be that only one race participated? While it may not be “because” of their race, it is a fact of life. These were young, African American males. Shall we go out and arrest a white or Hispanic male just to make that “community”, you speak of, happy. Every time I think about this I feel ill. And, I too, posted that I did not care if she was wearing a miniskirt and stilettos…rape is rape and the guilty should be punished. I close by saying, all those arrested are innocent until proven guilty, but I guarantee one or more of them, is or will, sing like a bird and we will know the truth. There is a gag order now so we won’t be hearing much more for a while. I live in Cleveland, TX so I will definitely be watching and waiting to see how this all shakes out! The Universe will settle this, I pray.

It brings me much comfort to know that they will have to answer to God for their actions on the day of their judgment!

It hurts now and will hurt for a long time. The ones that harmed you are 100% to blame. Don’t let anybody else tell you differently. Whatever you love to do– paint, dance, draw, play soccer— do it as much as you can. xo

Just remember god does not walk beside us in are time of need, he is carrying us in his arms. Though you may think that the pain will and cannotgo away. But trust me, it does get better and you will learn to move pass this horrendous act done to you. I’ve have been in your shoes to an extend before. It does get better! It is not and no way shape or form are you to blame for this horrible act. The nightmares of that event will lessen over time, and good memorys will fill up your head and those bad ones will fade but sadly never go completely away. But you will be able with time to deal with them. Remembers god loves you, always and forever!!!!

  30. No 11 year old child deserves this. I hope when these men get to jail, the general population knows exactly what they did.

    And to you, the precious child who had to go through this, you do not have to own the labels they want to put on you. You can rise above this and learn to live your life and love your life again. Please try and take whatever help is offered you, no matter how much you just want to forget. If no one offers, you seek it out. This does not have to ruin the rest of your life, but you have to fight to get through it.

  31. This is such a tragedy… I hope she gets the help & counselling to get through this…. i also ( as so many others ) have experienced a rape… as a 13 year old virgin…. it took me 10 years to get back to a semi-normal existence … once something like this has happened to you… you are never the same… it happens to so many … & do many are silent… stop the silence now…. be outraged…. cry out for justice… Do not let this continue… I recently read that there is a push in senate or congress to reclassify we the victims to accusers… no… damn it…. we are victims ….. we didn’t ask to be brutilized… & the people who do these things need to pay in the most extreme way possible… lest they continue to do things to others….

I really hate when people play the race card in situations like this, detracting from the victims’ suffering and trying to make themselves look important. I’m ashamed to be a person of colour when I see this. This child was little more than a baby and I wonder how many of these “outraged” people would say the same thing if it were their child?
    Would they blame their wife/daughter/niece/sister and say she was asking for it?

  33. To the “unamed” child, i seriously regret this has happened to you and any other female that has endured such hatred and dispiscable acts. Just stay positive, hold your head high. This is a VERY long and painful situation to overcome but you will as long as you remember, “IF GOD BRINGS YOU TO IT, HE WILL BRING/ LEAD YOU THROUGH IT.” Best wishes and do yourself one of the biggest and if not best things you can and that is, do not hold this and your feelings bottled up inside. I know its goin to be hard but face this head-on and dont let them and the world bring you down.

  35. Synonymous: Another nice job by Shannon “The Rape of the “Unnamed Girl.”

    And here is another story, narrative, chronicle of the need for religiosity and a re-emergent condition of high Judeo (or equivalent…no religion can support this and call itself a religion, paraphrasing Gandhi) Christian moral content, objectivism, individuality, character (a worn out concept) from “We The People.” This happens almost daily in the slums and ghettos…of America (did you expect somewhere else?).

    If this doesn’t bother you, neither will WWIII. Evil also exists when the “good” do nothing.

    “Liberty is a concept in political philosophy that identifies the condition in which human beings are able to govern themselves, to behave according to their own free will, and take responsibility for their actions.”

    Great things, nations and treasures are lost a little bit at a time, erosion around the edges. “A Constitution of Government once changed from Freedom, can never be restored. Liberty, once lost, is lost forever.” Author: John Adams. Liberty, embracing the “individual” and the definition thereof is “the quality or state of being free: the power to do as one pleases: freedom from physical restraint: freedom from arbitrary or despotic control: the positive enjoyment of various social, political, or economic rights and privileges: the power of choice.” We do not understand the concept of “freedom.” And yet we insist on exporting it.

    On how many, if not all, levels has the Liberty of this person been violated? And if there are not legends of champions for this cause, shame! This issue, a sub set thereof, the violent violation of children, but no less a horrific a violation of humanity, was covered in great detail under the issue, the event, the cause, the failure of humanity, falling under the discussion of “Synonyms”. This is a global symptom, for pray tell me how are not women generally treated the same elsewhere, say in Libya or Rwanda? Remember “The Rwandan Genocide was the 1994 mass murder of an estimated 800,000 people in the small East African nation of Rwanda. “ Mass murder includes rape, murder and mutilation. Must we, those “We The People” visit the gutter to be reminded of the slime. Behold the responsibility and accountability of Free Will. If we truly care about the “1” the “800,000’ may not have followed, and don’t blame God!

    “These will all be made null and void if in subsequent months one sees positive changes in the Egypt/USA rapport, the Egypt/Israel relationship, the decline and marginalization of Islamic extremism, the augmentation of human rights, and the embracing of human parity for the unalienable rights of women, girls, children and religion. Does this hold a great deal of “hope?” ”

    And we call ourselves principled Republicans, Democrats, Independents, Conservatives and Progressives. Is this “Ok” with you? Regardless, we must do it on our own, for He helps only those who help themselves. Are we up to the challenge? Can we overwhelming this web site with positive empathy “comment” responses to this issue? Ignore, back away, shy away, huddle silently in that zone of discomfort. I proffer the challenge.

  36. I’m amazed by how we can continue to blame the victim and not the monsters who did this disgusting act. It’s sad to realize that there are still so many people out there who think it’s “her fault” because she walked, talked, dressed or acted a certain way. Of course if it was their daughter the attitude would be different. Sick how many people can point fingers without thinking about the circumstances. No one deserves this kind of abuse and it’s sickening to think that people think this way.

    What an asshole town – All business and government subsidies should be boycotted and rescinded to this city until they step up and do the right thing.

    The only way to deter this from happening again is to make this a death penalty case

    My heart goes out this youmg innocent child and intense outrage and condemnation of anybody blaming her

  40. Unnamed girl, I hope you know that most, if not all, of us are behind you 100%. You did not deserve any of this. I’m a guy myself, and I truly believe no one in this world deserves to ever be raped. No matter what the situation is, if a girl says no, it’s a NO. (doesn’t matter if you’re married or not, it’s still rape if anyone says no). Anyways, I wish you the best in life, and I hope you can recover from all that has happened to you. Life can be beautiful, so please, don’t give up on it.

  41. I will also pray for her recovery. No woman or young girl EVER deserves to have something like that happen to them,no matter how she dress’,talks or walks. I hope these men rot in jail for the rest of their pathetic lives. Hope the people of her community learn morals,respect and compassion. It sickens me to think people could act in such a way,to blame an innocent child…wow…

  42. There is alot of well deserved raging against the rapists and the community, on these comments, for what they have done. I agree totally, but just in case the “unnamed girl” happens across this post and coments I want say a few things to her. I don’t know if you have herd this yet and if you have I don’t know if you believe it yet but there are two things you need to know and believe. First this was NOT your fault in any way shape or form. No twist of the imagination could make this your fault. Dont let anyone tell you it was. Second you are a precious child that has alot to offer this world. It may feel like life is over and your worthless but beat those feelings down. They aren’t true. You are beautiful and wanted in this world. I guess that’s for every “unnamed” girl. I will pray for peace, healing, and strength.

  43. i am sorry to know that people are so evil that a community would support monsters instead of innocent children. That people would say race is an issue when humanity is the issue. that people could sleep when all they have done is spewed hate over and traumatized child. that anyone could believe that a child could do anything that would constitute a reason to be treated like this. That rape is ok if a scared child writes so on her Facebook. It is a said world we live in when any or one of these things is happening. People should read more on how a victim reacts to a trauma like this when they are suffering from PTSD how they will say they wanted it because it is easier then thinking they were helpless to stop it. How they end up in bad relationships and drug addicts a lot of the time because the can’t deal with what happened to them and many are raped again if they don’t have proper help. It is one of the worst things to have to live with . You are violated in every way your mind your soul and your body and trust. It is the most awful thing to live threw. Death would be to easy for the people whom cause this crime they have distroyed the victims essence and the victim has to fight to become whom they were and whom they hoped to be while caring this awful thing in there head that keeps replaying and haunting them. It is never over for them it is always there and will change them forever . You can say you understand but till you are raped and live with the douets of if i did this or if i wasn’t there maybe it wouldn’t have happened . you will never know. but little girl or anyone whom has gone threw this and lives with the night mare please know there are millions of us out there and don’t give in to those self distructive thoughts. You didn’t do anything wrong no matter what you wore or how you acted rapist are rapists because they like to over power and violate people in the most horrific way possible . Not because of anything you did they get off one hurt people because they are vile creatures that should be tortured for the rest of there lives like there actions torture there victims

  44. Sweet child I hope you know the Lord for he knows your name and the name of all that have wronged you. No matter how backwards our world has become these men will have to answer for their actions. You are beautiful and strong, I know you are sting because you have made it this far. Remember to not loose yourself, to over come and live your life with your head held high that is winning. It’s hard but sometimes me must remember we can’t change what people do but we can change how we react. THIS WAS NOT YOUR FAULT!

  45. It is absolutely sickening to hear what kind of scum we have living among us, and the people who stand up for them. Where were the people who should have been standing up for this child? I hope every one of these men is treated to the exact same sickening violence, in jail. And I hope they see what it’s like to to suffer like that over and over, day after day. Let them wish they could just die. They deserve it after what they’ve done. And they deserve to be beaten half to death and afraid for their lives. My hope is, they will meet with that fate very soon. And when they get out, I hope they lose their careers and struggle for everything in life, because of the sickening crime on their records. Anyone who could ever think that this 11 year old child was in any way responsible, must have a very limited number of brain cells and very few morals.

  46. To The Unnamed Girl:

    Remember that whatever anyone might do to your body, you are not a body. YOU are a powerful, immortal spiritual being and no one can hurt you as a spirit or take away your joy or your future unless you let them. The best revenge is to follow your dreams and become the successful, happy woman that no one ever believed you could become. Live with power and amaze everyone. Be the story of inspiration that teaches others. Overcoming everything that has happened may not seem within your reach now, but you can overcome anything. There is no limit to your power, no matter how many evil people try to convince you that you have no power. That is not true, and people who harm you in this world have no more power than the weak whisper of dark shadows that have floated up from hell only to be pulled back down to hell after this life. The men who hurt you will never be successful, as their actions against you will curse them to the ugly fates they have tempted, through no act of revenge on the part of anyone. And so it is with life. Either in this life or in a future existence, they will create for themselves horrific pain and a darkness without end until they realize, independent of worldly justice or the lack thereof, that they must expel the evil of their acts from their own souls or be condemned to pain and silence for all eternity.

  49. Dear Little Girl,

    My heart breaks for you. I know that you never, ever expected such a horrific thing to happen to you. I don’t care IF you wore makeup, IF you wore short shorts, IF you ever looked at boys. YOU did NOT cause these awful things to happen to you. All those men will face the wrath of God. Little Girl, please know that God loves you. You are not a fault for this, you have been a victim of some disgusting pedophiles.
    I pray that your soul will be healed from this, and that the peace of God surrounds you forever. Amen

    And to these scum dogs and their scum lawyers and their scum parents and any other scum in this town, I hope the flames of Hell lick at you from the soles of your feet to the top of your head and all inside your black souls from now and beyond the day you die, to all eternity. Your only hope is to throw yourself on God’s mercy, repent and turn away…and make it right with this CHILD you hurt.

    You and your family are in my prayers. My heart hurts for you and what you have gone through. This was not your fault; please don’t let anyone tell you that it was. You are a little girl, and these horrible men who did this to you should be punished. If they are not punished in this lifetime, I am certain that God has a punishment in mind for them on Judgement Day. Stay strong little girl and know that God loves you and there are so very many of us out here who love you dearly even though we don’t know you. We will be praying for you and your family.

  53. As a grandmother there is no greater evil than to hear of such an atrocity against a child. These animals should be subjected to the same treatment. Put them in a cell with hardened criminals who hate men who hurt children and then justice will be served. To the little girl sweetheart it is not your fault. You are loved by many and what was done to you was horrific and these were not men but wild animals. You are God’s child and just as his son was killed by his enemies God loves you. Never forget that. We do not know why these things happen but know that justice will be served. You are innocent and not all men are like this only those who chose to let evil come into their lives. God bless you and your family. May justice be served.

  54. Every one of the individuals that participated in this evil act should be punished as viciously as they attacked this 11 year old. These kinds of things and the justification, denial and ignoring of them by the people around them makes me understand why the Creator destroyed Sodom and Gommorah. The kind of mentality that allows people to do these like this to others and those that condone it is sick and all those sick minds need to be removed from the planet. That’s the only way the world can become a better place. Signed A really pissed off mother!

  55. Dear little one,

    I’m so incredibly sorry that you’ve had to experience something so traumatic. I’m absolutely heartbroken for you and your family.

    You have done nothing wrong by expecting justice. There is nothing you could have possibly done to deserve this.

    Please know that you are supported by so many people around the world. We are thinking of you, praying for you, and wishing your world becomes the place you deserve it to be.

    You deserve every happiness, and I hope that with time, counselling, and loving support, you achieve this.

    *Much love*

  58. No – One deserves to be treated like that, regardless of sex, race, religion or otherwise. I hope that you are able to heal and that someday you might be able to move forward in life. Being a survivor myself, I know it is possible, but it takes time, lots of love, support, and self acceptance. You can not change people, you can only change yourself. What they did to you is unimaginable, and I hope that they receive the fullest extent of the law! I also hope that the people who say that you “deserved it” give their heads a shake, and when it falls to the ground they give it a kick! Amazing how some people find it necessary to lay blame… sickening!
    I wish you love and laughter and healing. May you pull through this with the strength of your self and your family and loved ones!
    Take care.

  61. I actually heard this on a TV show (L&O: SVU?), believe it or not: “No one has the RIGHT to put their hands on you.” Period. That is such an old old thought that what a woman/girl was wearing or doing can have bearing on the rape. The victim becomes the judged. It is disgraceful! Maybe she was dressing poorly, maybe her parents didn’t care what she did, maybe she was out late, maybe she was dying for some attention—those are all signs of a neglected young girl in need of proper love and attention. Even a woman of “loose morals” who sleeps with lots of guys is not asking to be raped! No woman asks to be raped! “No” means NO.

    Period! I think the people in the community (and it was an old woman, I read, that was spouting all the stuff about how the girl was dressed and that no one knew what went on in her house!) begin to be fearful of what it says about THEM that they raised young men like that, who would do such a thing and are less worried about the girl. I think that since it involved so many young men, the community has become fearful of their public reputation and how they appear to the world. However, they are shooting themselves in the foot by responding this way to the young girl; now we are doubly-judging them: for their young men doing this and for their desire to protect them and not the victim.

    Young lady: to you I say, get therapy. Get distance. Surround yourself with support and ignore the naysayers. I don’t think that God planned for you to get raped. I do think that whatever was going on in your home led you to a place you couldn’t, as a young girl alone, get away from. We are not puppets, controlled by God, each of those young men made a choice that day. That is between them and God. Now is the time for you to lean on God, to pray, to cry, to be comforted. Don’t hold on to this, you have a long life ahead of you.
    You are being prayed for by many! I hope you are able to heal some and move forward. Use this: you are not what everyone says you are, you are so much more and there is more in you yet. You can do this. Stand up to them and this hateful community.
    Good Luck to you!

  62. it is sad to me that the supreme court ruled that sexual asult or molestation is not a bad enough crime equal to the punishment of death. this child, although she is living, is dead inside for what has happended to her. There is, however a way to move on and be healed. that is only through the saving Grace of God. Jesus Christ can heal all hurts and wounds He alone knows the horrors that you have endured, and he alone knows how to take the pain away. There is nothing in his plan that says this was supposed to happen, evil people do evil things. I hope that there is restitution in this life however if there is not, please take comfort that the punishment of God will be far greater. My prayers are with you and your family, may you be reunited with them soon.

  63. I hope there will be laws in place one day to punish the ridiculous and disgusting people who support the rapists of young girls. Preceding comments are correct; there is nothing, NOTHING, that asks for, deserves, or invites that kind of treatment of an eleven year old girl. There is picture evidence and the families of these men continue to deny the perpetrators’ responsibility? To these men and their families, you can make excuses all you want but deep down I hope you know that there is nothing in healthy masculinity or humanity that is at all similar to what you have done. Boys will be boys and boys are better than rapists and molesters. You people, I don’t know what you are. But I hope you fall to the mercy of people like you; I hope you are in the position of that eleven year old girl one day and I hope your attackers have even less compassion for you than you did for her.

  66. I don’t care if she’s 11 or if she’s 21 or 91. You. Don’t. Have. Sex. With. An. Unwilling. Participant. There’s three simple words that matter here: No means no. It doesn’t mean “be gentle.” It doesn’t mean “I’m teasing.” It. Means. No.

    And while I’m not a religious man and I don’t believe in Hell… I hope a special Hell is opened up for the individuals who participated in this, be it raping the girl, filming her, or watching and not stopping. All of you bastards deserve torment for your actions.

    To the young lady? I am truly sorry this happened to you. There are still decent people out there who feel what happened is wrong. May you find peace of mind. And please, if you do blame yourself at all for what happened… don’t. It’s not you. It’s not your fault.

    I am disgusted by men these days. Although I’m even more disgusted by Republicans who pretend to care, but would force this child- and many many women- to bear the child of a sub-human man. Why should rape victims be raped for another nine months or even eighteen years just because God said so?

        Politics has everything to do with this. Republicans prop up the Southern macho culture that contributed to this incident. Republicans want to force women and girls to bear their rapist’s child- to risk their life and health to bear the child of a man they hate and fear.
        I’m not blaming the child. I’m saying that politics props up the culture that created her rapists.

        1. That’s a gross generalization – don’t you think? The accused (so far) are all African American men who are from the poorest part (“The Quarters”) of Cleveland. The African American vote is notoriously Democrat. I’m not sure that your venom is justified.

  68. !4 year old boys are not men! As for the other gender-bigots here, I feel more for the boys raped by your fine upstanding clergy than for I do for ANY raped girl. Also, this case is not about rednecks (Quannell X is NOT William Quantrill), men, or American culture in general. It is about Negroes demonstrating why “nigger” is such a dirty word: It tells a dirty truth.

    1. You sound more like a “gender-bigot” than who you are complaining about. Boy or girl, we should feel equally bad for both. Abuse is abuse. It is evil no matter what gender, race, or age. Yes, 14 is still a child, but he is being very well trained in how to be a rapist animal. The racist comment labels you as one yourself. Shame on you. We should be comforting this girl and condemning the animals that hurt her, not looking for a forum for our personal rants.

  69. I have lived in the Cleveland area for many years and have been working out of state for a while so I just heard about this hideous violence committed against a young child. I am very sorry for the pain that this child has endured and I pray that God will heal her body, heart and soul. Please believe that you are not to blame for these acts of violence–that you are innocent.

    Quanell X–this is not a race issue! The only issue is the violent rape and sodomy committed against an 11 year old child. How dare you make it about race? If the criminals are black, they they are black; if they are white, they are white. It’s about men, whether white or black, committing premediated and evil acts of violence against a young child. I don’t know if you have a daughter, but if you do, I would hope that you would look at her and thank God that what happened to this 11 year old child does not happen to her or any other female in your family!

  70. Precious girl, know that you are not alone. My prayers and thoughts are with you. I have an idea how you feel. I myself have been sexually assaulted as a child many times over many years. There is healing for you. The pain, anguish, fear, and confusion will not last forever. Know, as many have already said, you were and are NOT at fault. That too can take a long time to come to terms with. I found healing in the love and Support of my saviou Jesus The Christ. My belief is that there is no better support than the love of God. I don’t know if you believe in God and His son Jesus, but i recomend you research it. Never take someones word on that. Faith is a personal thing and must be checked out. That what my Bible says anyway. This may anger some people, but I also found healing in forgivness(extremely difficult uneder these circumstances) Holding hate in your heart only dammages you further, besides, I doubt they even care if you hate them, but I think you do. If my loved ones had know about it, they could have helped me heal as well. By the time they found out it was to late. Please don’t hate all men. There are some special ones out there. I found one and he has been my husband and best friend for 20 years. Those who hurt you are not real men. Real men protect children. Real men controll themselves. Real men know that love is self sacrificing. Love puts others first. My heart herts for you. I will pray that you will see and find the hope and true love that is out there for you as I did.

    As for the families of the rapists, you are all very wrong. I know that it is painful and hard to find out that you loved one has done such an evil and dispicable thing and coused such pain to a child, but you never protect them. You are NOT helpping them. You are hurting them. Love them, YES. Help them learn and take responsibility for thier horendous act, YES, but protect them NEVER! If you protect them it only teaches them that they can get away with it or that somehow it was right and you and I and everyone else knows it wasn’t and NEVER will be. Do the right thing and teach your children right from wrong. The rape was caused by what is in the mind and heart of the rapists. This must be addressed by their families if you ever expect them to learnanything good. Especially for the younger boys. Blaming the LITTLE GIRL is appalingly wrong! They NEED to be punished. By the way, real women NEVER tollerate such behavior from their husbands, sons, boyfriends, fathers, cousins,friends,etc. Be real women if you can. That’s a challange for all women.

      It is because of you the “talk” we had when I was young that intimacy with my wonderful husband is better than normal. It is precious and special. You made a big difference in my life. Thank you!

      To all abused women, normal, special, joyful “intimacy” is still possible for you if you don’t already know it.

These jerks should be supporting the little girl and looking to find solutions to this horrific behavior. Have you noticed how little national coverage this whole incident has received. Had the perps been white or hispanic, it would have been plastered on every front page in every city of the country. Every talk show in the country would be talking about it. Can’t touch this one–wouldn’t want to look unpolitically correct
