Thirteen-year old orphan girl gang-raped in Texas by illegal immigrants. Mainstream media yawns.

In my mind, this story is every bit as tragic as the George Zimmerman/Trayvon Martin story, yet we’re hearing very little outcry and outrage from the mainstream media, considering how horrific what happened to this girl is.

Oh yeah, the rapists were illegal immigrants.  That might have something to do with it.  I’ll be eagerly waiting Pres. Obama’s speech about how this young girl could have been one of his daughters.

From what I’ve seen, Glenn Beck is the only one in the media expressing any outrage over this at all.  Sad.

AUSTIN, Texas — As many as 10 men allegedly took turns sexually assaulting a 13-year-old runaway Texas girl in an apartment where some cheered and filmed the attacks with their cellphone cameras, according to court records released Thursday.

Authorities have charged two men in the alleged June 29 attacks, which began after the girl ran away from an Austin group home for children and got into a car with three unknown men, according to an arrest affidavit.

Juan Lozano Ortega, 25, and Edgar Gerardo Guzman Perez, 26, were charged Wednesday with aggravated sexual assault of a child. They were being held Thursday in the Travis County Jail on $30,000 bond each. Court and jail records did not indicate whether the men had attorneys.

Austin police did not immediately return a phone message Thursday about the investigation or other possible suspects.

“All of the other males took turns having sex with victim against her will, which lasted through the early morning hours,” the affidavit states.

Investigators found Ortega and Perez because one of them let the girl borrow their cellphone after dropping her off in a neighborhood and telling her to “find somewhere to go,” according to the court documents. The victim called her foster brother, who refused to come pick her up, but his caller ID captured the number of the suspect’s phone.

Doctors who examined the girl told investigators their findings were consistent with her allegations, according to court records.

State child welfare investigators have also started investigating the Settlement Home for Children, where the girl lived, said Patrick Crimmins, spokesman for the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services.

According to its website, the facility believes “that healing and learning take place when a child’s deepest needs are met, both physically and mentally. We are dedicated to helping children who have been abused and neglected by resolving their emotional, behavioral and familial problems and providing quality residential care.”

A phone message and email to the Settlement Home were not immediately returned Thursday.

In Cleveland, Texas, the gang rape of an 11-year-old girl over three months in 2010 led to charges against 14 adults and three juveniles. The rapes happened at a vacant trailer house about 45 miles northeast of Houston. At least 15 of the defendants charged in that case were convicted. One received a life sentence and another 99 years.

  1. It’s not that such a criminal act is not shocking that prevents
    widespread media attention / it’s that if attention media wide
    is given to rape of women /or this case a female child / then
    facts are going to be brought to light / of the treatment that
    given to women where they dare in cases of reporting rape.

    The number of males accused of rape in going to court is
    small / those actually found guilty ever smaller / it’s an dire
    situation for female /thus many rape cases never reported.

    To get a conviction seems one needs witnesses as have
    a video of the rape / a very difficult situation proving rape.

    I read a recent story of a norwegian woman whom raped
    while in a middle east country /in reporting the rape t’was
    her that was arrested the police focus was placed on her
    that she was aking to be raped that she drunk etc etc etc
    thus an appalling experience for her / she was only then
    released from prison in signing a statement saying she
    t’was the one at fault / thus some nations the attitude to
    rape of a woman is given little regard it a poor situation.

    I also read some countries / they regard the way solving
    rape of an female is for the female in marrying the rapist
    which but showing a complete disrespect for the female.

    As regards present case rape of a thirteen-year old if
    it done by those whom raised to have no repect for the
    rights of women / then they will not regard they having
    done wrong /it t’will simply be said she was asking for it
    thus deserved it. The problem’s not putting in prison to
    teach an lesson / the problems changing their attitude
    that woman (female) is human whom deserves respect.

  2. Thanks for posting W. Wallace. If this young girl were black being gang-raped by a bunch of non-black men, I absolutely, 100% guarantee you the American media would be talking about it.

  3. I take your point however they same dilema for govt would present
    itself where treatment of female victims of rape be they black white
    but simply appalling thus the decision of govt would be to give little
    as possible media coverage. Gang rape/ white on black / as black
    on white do happen /they are simply not given the media coverage.
