How in God’s name are these boys getting sympathy for being sentenced to one measly year? As if this girl who was raped and ridiculed and in my opinion, dehumanized, isn’t going to have to live with that for the rest of her life. Yes, she made the decision to drink. That does not give these two boys and the others involved even the slightest right to do what they did to her. She never asked for any of it. It’s RAPE. Yet people are sobbing over the fact that these boys with such promising futures now have ruined lives because of the VERDICT!? Not because they chose to rape that girl but because they got punished for it? I’m sickened by society.
