Gang Rape at a High School Dance and the Role of Bystanders

Many of us, I'm sure by now, have heard about this case from California involving a 15-year-old girl who was beaten and gang-raped outside of her Homecoming Dance. The clip below offers a summary of this horrific case.

Clearly the actions of the perpetrators are inadmissable and illegal. But what about those who may have encouraged this assault? Witnessed what was happening and didn't take action to stop it? Or possibly even videotaped or documented it in some way?

I'd love to hear your thoughts and comments.
