"I don't understand how this many people capable of such atrocious behaviour could be in one place at one time."

Don't you, Lieutenant Mark Gagan? Don't you really?

From the WikiPedia entry:
The school has a low direct to college rate, with many students choosing to attend a community college with intentions of transferring to a four-year university. Many students do not end up completing the transfer, however.

According to Richmond High's School Accountability Report Card (SARC), which is required to be published annually, the school has a predominantly "Hispanic or Latino" student base, accounting for 76.43% of their total enrollment. The SARC report also cites that 75% of the student base is "Socioeconomically Disadvantaged", with 54% designated as "English Learners".
If one opens and maintains a ghetto school, one must expect it to be attended by ghetto inhabitants, mustn't one?

Police Lieutenant Mark Gagan said "I left my brain in San Francisco" No he didn't.. but he did say "I still cannot get my head around the fact that numerous people either watched, walked away or participated in her assault." Ok - take some time out and think hard, Lt. Gagan because some of these 'bystanders' were definitely complicit in these rapes.

Further stereotype police efficiency is manifest in four school security guards who were in attendance but oblivious to a dozen young men hanging around the school entrance as they were to the two-hour duration of the rapes.

Coming to a school in England, soon?

I found perhaps the best take on it in an audio youtube - it is a commentary on the new family relationships too.

Yes, that's frankly bizarre, isn't it?

Like the new look, btw :)

"Julia, looks like wikipedia is changing RAPiDLY here."

I had a feeling that'd happen.
