The police need to get out from behind their desks and charge some adults with contributing to the delinquency of minors! Hosting parties for children and providing alcohol is definitely a crime! Now get busy and do your job!

I just wanted to state that this is so disgusting. I live in a small town in Northern Nevada and read about this online. I think it is one of the most vile things and that fact that the community is torn between the boys and the girls is outrageous. What is there to be torn about? All of you should be standing by this young woman and letting these so called upstanding young athletes know that this should not be tolerated! Period! I cannot believe this young girl is having to go through this and the humiliation she must be feeling. I am here to say that this would not be tolerated in our home town and they would not be rewarded for their actions here. I am saddened and appauled by what these young men are representing. Shame on them all.

typical, team boys just "havin a little fun". My didin't their daddys & mommys teach them well. You ask how did 26 people get dead in Conn. here is your answer. When the people of this town should be hanging their heads in shame, they are trying to figure out how to white wash it. have a good time contributing to what is wrong with America.

Maybe witnesses cld call if the idiots who are exploiting the alleged victim in their hate game weren't twitting ppl to call the police station and tie up the lines. some may mean well but most are just idiots on a joy ride, pouring salt into a open wound. They are obstructive criminals, who are no better than those who abused that poor girl.

Since these boys took nude photos of the young girl without her permission, and sent them over the internet, that might legally constitute child ****. We hope federal law enforcement will consider getting involved.

SNAP was founded in 1988 and has more than 12,000 members. Despite the word priest in our title, we have members who were molested by religious figures of all denominations, including nuns, rabbis, bishops, teachers, Protestant ministers and increasingly, victims who were assaulted in a wide range of institutional settings like orphanages, summer camps, athletic programs, Boy Scouts, etc."
