Girl Proud of 911 Call for Gang Rape
First off...WTF?! This young woman's life was in danger, and 20+ people, who saw it happening in front of them, were worried about being called a snitch...about gang rape. WTF.
These crimes against women occur very frequently and are rarely reported, so it makes this problem practically invisible. Thankfully, in this particular instance, there was a woman there with enough common sense to call for help.
