Chicago girl gang raped on Facebook Live, no one reported it, victim being harassed

A 15-year-old Chicago girl was dropped off at her home on March 19th after spending the weekend with her relatives. Sometime during that Sunday, the girl went missing. She didn’t return home until the following Tuesday, but before she had been found, she had been gang-raped by up to six men as it was being broadcast on Facebook Live, Facebook’s live streaming service. Up to 40 people watched the video live and not one of them reported it to police or Facebook. A teenager was able to get the video to one of the girl’s relatives who took it to a neighborhood activist who contacted police. However, the girl’s torment did not stop there.

After the victim returned home, she started receiving threats online including threats of violence. The girl and her family have since been relocated to a safe place by Chicago authorities.

So far no arrests have been made but a juvenile was taken into custody shortly after the girl was found.

This isn’t the first time Facebook has made headlines out of Chicago with these types of crimes. Back in January, four people were arrested for allegedly broadcasting the torture of a developmentally challenged man who thought one of his attackers was his friend. Also, in 2013, prior to the advent of Facebook Live, a gang of Chicago teens raped a 12-year-old girl, then posted the video to Facebook.

Not only does Chicago appear to be a city that would make Kitty Genovese roll in her grave, but for many people it seems to be a living hell on earth. It’s starting to make Detroit look like a vacation spot.

  1. As much as some people are using FB live for good use , there are always going to be pigs and assholes who will naturally abuse every situation. It takes a special kind of pig to rape a kid but as for the people who watched the live feed and didn’t report it…smh . I wonder how well they sleep at night.
