Sorry excuses of people -such as those on CNN- who sympathize with rapists should not be allowed to speak to thousands of people; especially with credentials as questionable as theirs. Journalism is about the truth, not exploiting the red, white and blue, slut who cried rape -which actually happened in this case- in order to justify two messed up little boys in heat. It makes me wonder what company they mailed boxtops into for the degrees in communications.

I don't care how young these boys are, violence is NEVER ok. If they did the crime they have to suffer the consequences. What kind of men would they become if they were not held accountable? They're lives may be rough for awhile, but her's will NEVER be the same.

My mother was raped when she was a child and then her rapist tried to kill her by stabbing her in the chest. The perpetrator got nothing more than a slap on the hand and then the family hushed it up (it was one of her uncles). She still has nightmares and flashbacks about it.

The rspists gave this girl and themselves a life sentence. They deserve their consequences and sympathizing with them only furthers the victimization of rape victims.

Shaming victims of such a horrible crime is unacceptable. The only reason these rapists are given special treatment is because of their athletic ability. This is truly disturbing to me to think that anyone in our modern society condones rape.
