Call It What It Is - Rape

There is so much that is sad and wrong with this story.
Tormented 15-year-old Felicia Garcia jumped to death in front of train after football players bragged about sexual conquests, say police

The tormented Staten Island teenager who killed herself by jumping in the path of a train was bullied to death by classmates after she had sex with four football players, police sources said Thursday.

Felicia Garcia, a 15-year-old freshman at Tottenville High School, was driven to her death after two 17-year-old classmates blabbed about the encounters.

“Kids are saying she had sex with some guys from the football team at a party after the game,” said a friend of the doomed girl who asked not to be identified. “Later on they wouldn't leave her alone about it. They just kept bullying her and bullying her.”

After the weekend, the bullying sent Felicia into the final tailspin in a long-troubled life.
First off, there is the popular misconception that there is no downside to unbridled, "free range" consensual sex. That is the lie foisted upon our culture by liberals and their sexual revolution. Sex is not love and love is not sex.

So many of my generation had to learn this. Poor Felicia, already burdened by a dysfunctional family, learned this the hard way and it broke her.
“I cant, im done, I give up,” she tweeted Monday.

School officials heard of the bullying and set up a mediation session Wednesday with a counselor and one of the 17-year-old boys. The teenager denied harassing the girl, the sources said.

Leaving the office, Felicia later ran into the other 17-year-old who had been making her life miserable — and they exchanged words, the sources said.

Police did not say what was said. But it was enough to send Felicia marching off to the Huguenot station of the Staten Island Railroad, where she killed herself in front of horrified classmates.

Senior Alissa Compitello said she saw Felicia on the way to the train station and the girl told her that she had the mediation because of the bullying.

“She was smiling though, like everything was going to be okay,” said Compitello, 17.

But a quick look at Felicia’s Instagram account would have revealed the depths of her despair. On it, she placed a picture of herself with the word “Depressed” covering her eyes.

“Just because someone is smiling doesn’t make them happy,” read her caption.
These young men (I don't like to call them men, they are mean spirited child rapists) and need to be arrested and charged under Section 135.25 of the NYS Penal Law, Rape 3rd. By law, a 15 year old child is not capable of granting consent to sexual intercourse. This is why we have laws protecting children.

Felicia was preyed upon by these rapists and they must pay the price.

But of course the idiots in the school system go off on an anti-bullying frenzy. This is an instance of rape, endangering the welfare of a child and harassment. There are existing laws passed by the NYS Legislature structured to deal with this. What is needed are school administrators who will deal realistically with problems, not engage in a knee jerk reaction offering agenda-driven liberal pablum.

Question of the day!...Is Biden just an idiot or mentally unstable?

Silverfiddle said...

We are a sick culture, and the schools contribute to it.

They push criminal prosecution for stupid things, and then, as you point out, when a real crime occurs, they employ "mediation" and other worthless socialist tools.

I do hope those boys are charged with rape.

From what I understand, legally, if the youth are within 2 years of each other's age, it is not considered molestation or rape.

So sad for her. Heartless creeps bullied her to death.

Radical - ahhhh, yes!

Silver - this is what Orwell warned us about in his novel "1984." To the political elites, language means whatever they want it to mean whenever they want to mean it.

Opus, this varies from state to state. In New York the Penal Law states that:

§130.25 Rape in the third degree.
A person is guilty of rape in the third degree when:
1. He or she engages in sexual intercourse with another person who is incapable of consent by reason of some factor other than being less than seventeen years old;
2. Being twenty-one years old or more, he or she engages in sexual intercourse with another person less than seventeen years old; or
3. He or she engages in sexual intercourse with another person without such person's consent where such lack of consent is by reason of some factor other than incapacity to consent.
Rape in the third degree is a class E felony.

Paragraph 3 is where these predators should land.

Send these rapists to jail to meet "Bubba".

I'm too far away from my 13 year old daughter. I'm going to pack up and move to be within sight of her. A short phone call every few days is not parenting. I'm ashamed of myself.

banned said...

Not sure how Paragraph 3 covers this situation, there is no suggestion that the initial sex was without consent and that paragraph excludes "incapacity to consent" (by reason of age).

These are the same liberal fools who want to encourage adoption by same sex couples and not expect their adoptees to be hounded to death by their classmates once they are discovered to have "two dads"; it's what kids do.

Odie - prison shower buddies are mandatory.

Dirt - nothing to be ashamed of. I have four daughters. I was accused of being a nut case.

Subvet said...

I apologize if the following comes off as speaking ill of the dead, hopefully she passed along an incurable STD to these human hairballs. It won't be much, but it'd be better than nothing.

banned - under NYS law a child cannot consent to a sexual act. Nor can a child sign a contract. A child can be arrested under a PIN warrant (Person Needing Supervision) if they don't attend school.

If Felicia was 16 it would be a different story, it would not be rape. Rape 3rd is the old statutory rape law.

Subvet - it is most likely that nothing of any real consequence will happen to these teens, even if they are 16 or older.
