BC Teens charged w sexual assault

We all were appalled by the recent ‘gang’ attack on a 16yr old girl. This apparent violent and reckless behavior by our youth angers many of us who feel supervision boundaries seem vacant. I’m more upset by the teenage peers who posted pictures of scene on Facebook with apparent zeal. I speak for the thousands of good teens who hate this story. Not just teens are stained by this rare violence but also adults who seem unable to prevent this atrocity.

“….Child pornography charges have been laid against a 16-year-old boy from Maple Ridge, B.C., for allegedly taking photos of a sexual assault at a rave and posting the images on the internet.

The youth, who cannot be named because of his age, is one of two people who have been arrested in connection with the incident. Police have also recommended sexual assault charges against an 18-year-old man, who was arrested and released earlier this month.

Police say the 16-year-old victim was drugged and sexually assaulted by several people outside a house party on a rural property in Pitt Meadows on Sept. 10. (CBC )
