    Outcry over disowned US rape girl

    Outcry over disowned US rape girl



    Offers of help are pouring in for an eight-year-old Liberian girl disowned by her own family in Phoenix, Arizona, after being raped by four boys.

    The girl is under the care of the Arizona Child Protective Service (CPS) because her parents said she had shamed them, and they did not want her back.

    Phoenix police said calls had come in from all over the US offering money, or even to adopt the young girl.

    The boys, Liberian immigrants aged nine to 14, have been charged with rape.

    The case has sparked outrage across the US and even drawn condemnation from Liberian President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, an outspoken anti-rape campaigner.

    "I think that family is wrong. They should help that child who has been traumatised," Mrs Johnson-Sirleaf told CNN.

    "They too need serious counselling because clearly they are doing something, something that is no longer acceptable in our society here," she added.

    Brutal attack

    Media reports said the girl was lured into a shed on 16 July with promises of chewing gum by the four young boys.

    There, they held her down and took turns assaulting her for 10 to 15 minutes, before her screams alerted officers nearby.

    The oldest suspect, a 14-year-old boy, will be tried as an adult on charges of kidnapping and sexual assault, police said on Friday. He is being held in police custody until trial.

    The other three - aged 9, 10, and 13 - are charged as juveniles with sexual assault and kidnapping.

    But the police said no charges will be filed against the parents.

    "They didn't abandon the child," Phoenix police sergeant Andy Hill told AFP news agency. "They committed no crime. They just didn't support the child, which led to CPS coming over there."

    Sgt Hill said people from eight or nine US states had called wanting to adopt the girl or donate money.

    "It has been unbelievably fantastic in terms of support for the child," he said.

    Why on earth would you think the parents should be ashamed?

    And it is not a 'girl', is it a child.

    cos they would feel that the neighbourhood people would talk about them behind their back for not taking proper care of the kid. people would stir all sorts of hurt, even if it wasn't true. but just giving up on the kid like that will just make matters worse.

    and 'she' is a girl. sure, she isnt a teen, not a woman. she's a young girl. even the BBC state she is a girl

    Sounds like the kid would be better off away from her parents.
    What a double tragedy for this poor little girl, being pack raped and then no support from her own parents.

    Its a credit to the good people who are offering help.

    Liberians are not a real civilized people so hard to know what to expect from them.
    But Lily said that the younger boys could not be guilty as they are not old enough to have sex, there was quite an extensive discussion about youngsters and sex and Lily. being a medically trained individual is the voice to listen to when anything about biology or the human genome is the subject.

    That poor girl...as if her trauma wasn't already more than enough, but then the very people supposed to care for her, turn their backs on her. Horrific tale.

    It seems to be that the followers of Islam do things like blame the female for that shit when it happens, I do not know if her family is of that religion but it does sound like it.

    People Religion

    About two-fifths of Liberians are Christian, about one-fifth are Muslim, and roughly two-fifths profess other religions, primarily traditional beliefs. The largest number of Christians are the Kpelle, followed by the Bassa. Some Liberians who identify themselves primarily as Christian incorporate traditional beliefs into their personal theologies. The Muslims are found predominantly among the Mande peoples in the northwest region of the country.
