http://rawstory.com/2009/11/teen-life-s … -raped-13/

Long story short: a girl with no father and an addict of a mother met a pimp at age 11. He raped her when she was 13 and pimped her out for three years. At age 16, she finally stood up and killed the man.

She's now set to serve life in prison without the possibility of parole because the court considered it premeditated.

Never mind the fact that she had been raped many many times over the course of three years.

Never mind the fact that the state should have been doing things to prevent this sort of shit from happening.

Never mind the fact that the pimp probably would have only gotten 30 years in prison for child rape.

Apparently, we can't protect ourselves any more.

If she did, here's what would have happened

-Wait a month for them to do anything
-They investigate
-They either find no evidence or they don't find much evidence
-If the latter, the pimp goes to court
-He gets sent to prison for 20 years
-He arranges one of his cohorts to "discipline" (AKA rape and probably kill) her
-He'd be out in 20 years ready to keep doing what he was doing before

She should be getting a medal, not a prison sentence.

Just some food for thought:

-What this man did to her was essentially torture. If you don't support torture, you shouldn't support this girl getting life in prison

-A police officer can shoot a disarmed man who's on the ground in the back and get paid administrative leave, but a girl kills a man who tortured her for three years and gets life in prison

Typical response, and as usual it is by a needlessly disillusioned person. You have no idea how the system works. She should have gone to the police.

Yeah, my bad. Things have changed, but in '91 he probably woulda gotten 11 years:

What would your attitude be if, say, a prisoner of war killed his captors and was then sentenced to life in prison for it?

What would you do in this situation oh great and wise one? Knowing that telling the police could get you killed, what would you do?

You know this how?

Worlds of police incompetence are primarily a work of fiction. Real life is not like the movies.

Exactly, this is real life, not the movies, going to the police is no guarantee of a happy ending, it's no guarantee of anything.  Police are, *gasp!!!* human! No way for them to confirm or refute her claims without a lengthy and time consuming investigation.  During that period of time, seeing as that man would yet to have been charged, and the case against him hinging on the testimony of a single minor which he had already shown willingness to dominate and abuse, how can you seriously believe he wouldn't simply remove what he sees as his property from the picture?  Trade her life, a life he had already to a greater or lesser extent destroyed, for his own.  This is very simple.  In extreme situations, such as this, going to the police is not a viable solution.  Occassionally, even in this era of people too pampered and self righteous to consider sullying their precious hands with something as pedestrian as self defense, occassionally, you have to do things for yourself.  Bravo to her, she got herself out of a horrible situation, and removed a parasite in the process.  She deserves recognition and honor, not a prison sentence.

you're arguing with people who would probably have no qualm cutting a man's hands off for stealing a loaf of bread


what if someone breaks into your house? would you call the police or defend your property?

Umm, he would've been locked up as soon as she came forward. THEN the investigation would've been done. They aren't going to risk her life in a situation like this.

She should be pardoned and given this. Wait she shouldn't even need to be pardoned in the first place.

sad but unsurprising.

why we are allowed to sentence sixteen year olds to life is beyond me.

You'd think the judge would understand the serious mental trauma she probably went through and try to get her HELP and not lock her up for life.

-she isn't dangerous to society
-she killed a man that was dangerous to society
-she was under abuse and rape for 3 years by the man she killed
-she is only 16

Not that the judge should say "it's ok to kill bad people", just that this is a circumstance where his death was justified, especially at the hands of someone he put through so much abuse, mentally and physically.

Give the girl a break and help her get her life back to normal. (Or as normal as you can after a teenage life like that)
