A group of thugs in Chicago decided it would be fun to gang rape a fifteen year old girl and live stream it on Facebook. At least forty people were watching the live stream but not one of them called the police. The girl had gone to the store and not returned, troubling her uncle. Somehow, he found the live stream on the Internet. The girl was later released and the police found her walking about four blocks from her house. She was traumatized but shows no signs of serious physical damage.
None of the roughly 40 people who watched the video called police about the attack, investigators said. It’s the second time in months that Chicago police have investigated an apparent attack streamed live on Facebook.
“Here’s what’s even more disturbing, more than the fact that they did this, there were so many people that saw it and didn’t pick up the phone to dial 911,” Johnson told WGN-TV. “That’s not right. It’s just not right.”
The girl was reported missing after she didn’t return to her Lawndale home after going to the store on Sunday, the Chicago Tribune reported. Then, the girl’s uncle reportedly came across a Facebook Live video showing a group of boys assaulting the 15-year-old.
The girl was found Tuesday morning walking four blocks from her home. Police said she appeared to be in “good condition” and was returned to her mother, the Tribune reported.
Committing horrendous crimes and posting it on social media is a growing trend, even though the live streams are often the only reason they get busted for their crimes. Earlier this year 4 thugs beat and tortured a special needs boy and broadcast it live. All four were later arrested.
