    Mentally-challenged US girl gang-raped in class as teacher stood few feet away

    Washington: A mentally-challenged 15-year-old girl in New York was brutally gang-raped by two boys in her classroom with her teacher standing only a few feet away, a media report said on Sunday.

    The special needs student was allegedly sexually assaulted for 10 minutes as another student "hit her on the head whenever she tried to escape" during a science class at a school in Elmont, the Daily Mail reported citing the New York Post.

    The girl's mother filed a lawsuit, alleging that the teacher ignored the assault even as one student danced on the desk while another attempted to sexually assault the girl.

    Judiciary never treated women with dignity, says former Supreme Court judge
    Though the girl told a school social worker the next day, school officials failed to report the crime.

    She was the only girl in her class of 13 boys.

    The daily said the alleged attackers were residents of a home for juvenile delinquents.

    The girl's mother said her daughter was bullied for months.

    The school's executive director said an internal investigation was conducted as soon as they heard of the abuse and fired the teacher.

    Now will US news condemn American culture like they have done to ours? Who will be the "native" informants this time around?

    Well maybe it is time to get back to the good old methods, and just publicly punish such punks in schools so they will know their place, before they will do such horrible things... and if they do them, just hang them on hooks, it will be good enough lesson for the rest of possible murderers, rapists and other junk. :tsk:

    Well said. Every time such incidents come to light in the US or UK, it is always, "oh, what nasty men, they should be punished". But when it happens in India? "Oh, third world, craphole, toilet, caste system, ganges, Hindoos, ashes and cremation" and such bullshit. I'm getting a tad tired of these asinine comments in every newspaper article in Western media.

    One more thing... who the hell puts a mentally challenged person in a class where most of students are juvenile delinquents?!

    Ohhh, I am sure that someone will have a hard time when police will start to sniff more around.

    Hardly a gang rape, 2 mentally challanged teenagers rapeing another mentally challanged teenagers, now the parents will get hundred of thousands of dollars from a law suit and the law will take its course, the USA is a nation of laws not men, and the law is slow some times but it grinds exceedingly fine. I wont say what happend in India cant happen in the USA but its a lot less likely.

    Wow shows what respect you have for women to dismiss a gang-rape as "hardly" a gang-rape. How about mass murder like in Newtown, pray tell us if that is more likely to happen in India or US.

    The fact is that such things can happen anywhere, so it is irrelevant where it can happen. What is important though is to finally stop being politically correct and if such punks abuse women, they deserve proper punishment, like death penalty... or just at least cut off their business.

    This assault may have included a handicapped victim and two bonafide juvenile delinquents which may not be equatable to a random act of violence. However this particular incident IS a reflection upon the increasing structural deficiency in our country where the most vulnerable sections of the populace (in this case poor & handicapped) fall through the cracks. The two biggest failures here are the education system and criminal detention programs.

    We are not a socialist nation that redistributes earnings. However as very wealthy and powerful republic we expend tremendous amounts of resources to maintain a high quality of life (compared to underdeveloped nations) for the entire populace. However we have absolutely mismanaged these funds when it comes to public programs that are catered to the poor. For instance how does a mentally challenged child end up in the same class as juvenile delinquents when their needs are separate? I use to provide specialized healthcare care for children in the undeserved area and I can personally attest for the pathetic conditions of the child protection services. This would never happen in a suburban area. The statistics of the failing schools in the lower income communities speak for themselves. Furthermore there's also a lot to be said about the misguided nature of our criminal justice system which obsesses over petty drug criminals peddling marijuana while ignoring juvenile criminals who can be just as violent as adults.

    I am glad however that the justice system has expedited this case in a relatively decent time (the crime happened in may of 2012); and I'm also glad that justice was served even though the victim came from the lowest socioeconomic rung of society (and has a fairly high statistical probability of being black.). I'm also glad that there has been a solid debate about certain aspects of the war on drugs and the eventual reversal of pointless drug related incarceration laws in Colorado and Washington. Now hopefully this experiment will be successful and we can divert funds toward more useful purposes.

    Also to respond to your first sentence, this IS a gang assault.

    Nobody has "condemned" Indian culture as a whole. And this 'us vs them' paradigm is entirely childish and unfounded. Also, what's the perspective of the argument? Are you attempting to draw a parallel between this assault and the assaults that recently took place in India? Because attempting this would be a false equivalency.

    Having said that there's no denying that this incident is a reflection of certain structural failings in the American society and anyone who says otherwise is delusional.

    Yeah right, because we should show love and tollerance for rapists, murderers and imbeciles that don't respect others... sorry I prefer civilization and law over anarchy and primitivism.

    And in many ways, the so called dark ages were more civilized than what we have today.

    Not necessarily. This is merely a news phenomenon. There are tonnes of gruesome assaults that take place on a daily basis and at least in the United States they do not make it past the local evening news. But now and then some particular one will get special attention and it'll turn into a focus of attention for a while. If anything the bias is within the United States which has a connection with socioeconomic conditions of the victims.

    I have serious doubts if DFI is not turning into a gang-rape discussion forum.
