This just made my heart shrivel up in my chest reading it. My heart and prayers go to that young girl. Mankind is a disease for which the only cure is Armageddon. Thanks Carrie.

Austin. So, did they promise her anything, like the captor in Houston did? If so, will the GOP defend them because they are very promising?

if this little girl is pregnant...she can't get an abortion in Texas now thanks to our good buddy Rick Perry and his crew.

I sure do hope this poor girl will be able to put her life back & have good people around to help her to accomplish this difficult task!!! -Each & every one of the guilty need castration-no anesthesia & thrown down an endless dirty pit-never to be again!!~

And if she is pregnant who knows who the father is~only DNA can say.

Life in prison isn't nearly enough of a sentence! And if she does conceive a child, as Carrie suggests, will she be forced to carry the pregnancy to term? Texas is one of the most backward states when it comes to women's rights...

The history books say that we fought a war with Mexico and stole Texas from them. Fact is, we LOST the war and they forced us to take Texas.

Saying this is sad is not even close. Hoping of course one day she will be ok and able to function as normla as possible. Although this would scar anyone. The damage has to be beyond what we can comprehend unless it has happened to us personally.

As for these individuals ,they need to be killed and they cannot exist in society again no matter what!!!!!! It's not possible to allow them in society and I'm sorry they wont change. This young girl has to deal with the memory forever.....

TY for the post..

Yes, I am being bigoted when I wonder if they are citizens? Ii'm not talking about deportment NOW, but, after they serve several decades in jail.

I didn't mention something I felt important also. She was already in the system and I'm sure had bad experiences with that . I don't know if I even beleive that the Settlement Home for Children was not already causing other problems. They need to be investigated to the fullest also.

NOT the main situation here but it has to play a part in her life . I truly hope she makes it back fully. Emotionally and physically able to be loved the proper way one day far away at this point.

As a woman or even if it was a young boy this is hell. 10 men ???!!! They have only found 2 so far involved . I feel they will find more that were involved. People tend to boast when then pull off an act like this. Especially since it was even being video taped. We all know the RAPE is an act of violence. 10 men ... all twisted and violent in society. NO WAY!!

Allen, hopefully the 2 men and any of the others have a terrible so called accidental death in prison.

Poor girl, she was already in a Home for Abused and Neglected Children. Who knows what horrors she had sustained up to this point and then these men only add more misery and pain to her life. On top she has the misfortune of having this happen in Texas, where little empathy will be given to her and certainly she has to deal with limited reproductive care and choice.

This is the Hell one speaks about, it isn't somewhere down below, it's what many people find themselves in who are living upon this Earth.

Another commenter mentioned the food. I think there is something to that. I don't think it's the only factor but I do believe it factors in. We have too many toxins in our environments, within the food, the water sprayed on the food or what we drink, and the toxins that are in our air. I'm not making excuses for them, but I do believe that as a society we must clean our environment and bring our foods back to a healthier place. After all "We Are What We Eat" and with the toxins and GMO's we are not eating well at all.

Noted. I read the report, but did not watch the video as I felt it would be too traumatic.

These guys obviously wanted to be caught..They rape the girl then they give her their cell to make a call...(Talk about dumb)

Dandelion, I agree about the food (and water). There are very clear statistics over many years which associate exposure to lead with violence, but other toxins, not so much. Yet anything new that comes on the market they wil push on us and most will try and if it's tasty will come back for more, like cats and antifreeze. If the human race lives long enough (since that is now definitely in question), our descendants will look back on us and wonder WTF we were thinking.

Noted. Settlement Home takes care of abused and neglected girls. Taking care of kicks them out?? Lets them go at night?? These two rapists are wonderful candidates for castration!! Hope they the others - all need to be castrated - guarantee they'll never rape again.
