So they arrested some guys last fall for this nonsense and now it has happened again. What is this, a new gangbangers' rite of passage??
These so-called men deserve whatever ill comes their way.
The girl was approached about 5 p.m. as she was walking alone on Cutting Boulevard near Stege Avenue. Four men in a black Buick pulled alongside the girl, said Richmond police Sgt. Bisa French, before one of the men got out and forced her into their vehicle. The girl was threatened with a handgun, she said.
The victim was taken to an unknown residence where she was sexually assaulted by two of the men from the car, French said. She was then brought back to the car and driven to Contra Costa College, where she was left at a bus stop, she told police.
A San Pablo police officer found the girl at the college about midnight. She is reported to be in good condition and did not need to be hospitalized after the assault, French said.

15? That's awful. Given her age, it's entirely within the realm of possibility that this was her first sexual experience with a man. I can't even begin to imagine what it would be like to have rape as your first sexual experience.
As an aside, I remember about a year ago when I was looking at home prices in the Bay Area and found A LOT of very reasonably priced homes in Richmond. Knowing the area's famously high real estate prices I knew that something didn't add up so I did a quick search and found out that Richmond has California's 3rd highest murder rate. Mystery solved.

Quoting Johnboy (Reply 6): The local news just reported that she made the whole thing up, because she needed an explanation for why she wasn't at home.
Not sure what's worse. The crime or the lie. Just image if some suspects were rounded up and were found guilty?
Quoting Aaron747 (Reply 3): Make no mistake, as macho as they think they are, these are not real men we're discussing.
In regards to the real case that happened last October, I wholeheartedly agree!
Quoting Aaron747 (Reply 3): Yes you can have a 3BR for around $250K if you don't mind residing in a de facto hellhole.
Actually you can get one for close to $100,000 now in this economy.

I avoid driving through the city of Richmond at ALL COST!
Even in the day time, I don't feel safe there and I never use the Richmond BART station to transfer on Amtrak.
Richmond's population is roughly 80,000 and yet their murder rate is twice of San Francisco's which population is roughly 760,000.

Quoting Chrisair (Reply 9): Oh now now, there are some nice areas of Richmond....not many, but a few.
The hills of Richmond are nice but if you need to go to the nearest grocery store, you have to downhill to the slums and dodge bullets. Point Richmond is dump too, sort of.
An over-priced gated condo community made with paper thin walls and other cheap materials.
Any way you slice it, Richmond is the arm-pit of the Bay Area.
Oakland has a bad reputation but there are some incredible neighborhoods in Oakland with multi-million dollar views.

It's not too bad....i've made the transfer many times with my bike. Only once somebody hit me up for some money by the BART ticket machines. Now the Iron Triangle past downtown Richmond.....that's a REALLY badass place, day or night.
