Girl Gets Raped, People Stand and Watch

It’s your high school homecoming and you have just got finished dancing the night away. You are ready to go, and as you stand outside waiting on your father to pick you up, a man asks you to join a few people drinking in the courtyard of the school. Sloppy drunk, he proceeds to beat, rob, and rape you. You cry out for help only to realize that people are not helping you, they are standing there watching. Some of the onlookers even stop and participate in raping you, and no one reports what is happening. 

Imagine if this was you. 

This is exactly what happened to a 15-year-old girl in Richmond, California. According to, Police say dozens of people watched the rape, and no one reported it. Police finally received a tip about a possible assault, and found the girl in and out of consciousness laying under a picnic table. She remained hospitalized with non-threating injuries. 

Manuel Ortega, 19, was arrested at the scene and was being held on $800,000 bail for investigation of rape and robbery. He is not a student at the school. But another 15-year-old student at the school was arrested late Monday on one count of sexual assault. 

What the hell is wrong with the world? How could you just stand there and watch? The people who watched are just as guilty of the crime. What is the world coming to?  SMH.

What is this was you? What happened to respecting women?



  1. “Sloppy drunk”, was that the guy or the 15 year old girl? She should had waited on her father like she was suppose to. If she was going to wait outside in the front then she should have had a friend or friends to wait with her. Or she could of waited inside. It’s a high school homecoming, where were the faculty, security, or staff at the dance or the courtyard? You’re telling me that there were drunk people walking around on the high school campus and there were no adult supervision? And 20 people just ignored the girl getting raped? There something fishy about this story. I guess there’s not enough info about the whole story but everybody is guilty about this incident. The school, adults, and the people that were there.

  2. Yeah .. the guy who raped her was drunk. And yes drinking on a school campus. This whole story is sad. It’s amazing things like this happen.

  3. This is f**king sad, no one had the balls to stand up for this girl. regaurdless of where she was or where she should have been, no girl deserves that!! All of the onlookers are just as guilty and the people who rapped her should be sentenced to the most grusome death. The school should be severly punished, and everyone who was there and did nothing should be charged aswell. If I went to that school I would leave. If theywould let that happen to her they’ll let it happen to you. This country has become a bunch of punks. IF I had been there I would have died protecting her!!!! This makes my blood boil!!!!!

  4. Please don’t even effing tell me that you’re going to blame the girl-a 15 year old!- for being raped by an adult in a PUBLIC place, a school no less, where there were other girls her age. Hypothetically, if a girl took off her dress & streaked through the whole prom that would never, ever give anyone the right to rape her or make it her fault. Please take your head out of your butt and at least pretend like you’re a human being capable of empathy.
