Update: The last of the 20 men who raped an 11-year -old girl accepted a guilty plea in Fall of 2013. Two of the men had trials and were both sentenced to life or 99 years in prison. Eleven other men were handed 15-year sentences. Seven of them, still juveniles, entered guilty pleas and received seven-year probated sentences.

Cleveland, Texas– The alleged gang rape of an 11-year old Hispanic girl by almost 20 African-American men has re-ignited racial tensions the small Texas town, locals say.

In the same town that a black man was killed by the police over the theft of a pen in 1988,  and has recently had complaints of corruption against 3 black officials; some locals feel that the gang rape will become a “black and white issue”.

Brenda Myers, a family acquaintance and leader of the  Community and Children’s Impact Center said, “It’s segregating our community again. The reaction is anger, devastation”.

Suspects in the rape of an 11-year-old girl include (top, l. to r.) Jamarcus Napper; Jared McPherson; Kelvin King; (bottom, l. to r.) Marcus Porchia; Xavier King; Devo Green.

One man felt that African-American men are victims of “selective prosecution” in  recent arrests:

“Every adult male that had sex with this child should go to prison, I don’t care what the color is. But I do not believe black males are the only ones that had contact with this young child,” said Quanell X, the leader of Houston’s New Black Panther Party. “It appears to me there’s only been the selective prosecution of one community, which is African American.”

The victim has reportedly been removed from custody from her parents. Police are investigating if there were more people involved in the crime.
