Homecoming Gang Rape

From the San Francisco Chronicle:

The Richmond High School girl who was gang raped after leaving a homecoming dance delivered a message Tuesday evening to hundreds of people shaken by the attack and hoping to bring about a positive change in its ugly wake – “violence is always the wrong choice.”

“We realize people are angry about this,” the 15-year-old sophomore said in a statement read by her church pastor at a rally at the high school. “But let the anger cause change, change that is necessary to keep our children, our neighbors and our friends safe.”

The pastor, Jim Wheeler of the First Presbyterian Church of Richmond, praised the assembled 500 students, parents and area residents for their “heart and emotion” in support of the girl. He said he believes she is recovering well, “but she will have a long way to go.”
