Arrests Made in Gang Rape Hate Crime

For those who have not yet heard, there’s an update in the case of the lesbian woman who was gang-raped in a suspected hate crime in the San Francisco Bay area.  All four of the suspects in the case have been arrested.

Two men and two teenagers have been arrested on suspicion of gang-raping a woman last month in the San Francisco Bay area while taunting her for being a lesbian, the police said. Those arrested were Humberto H. Salvador, 31; Josue Gonzalez, 21; and a 15- and a 16-year-old whose names were not released. Detectives say the 28-year-old victim was attacked Dec. 13 after she got out of her car, which bore a rainbow gay pride sticker.

Though there’s definitely no such thing as “good news” in a case like this, it’s certainly what many of us were hoping for. The police at least care enough to have done a real investigation and to make some arrests. All we can hope for now is a successful prosecution.  That, along with our continued hopes for a safe physical and emotional recovery for the woman who survived the attack.

    “What are we teaching these children?”

    To hate women and gays. Seems like they learn somethings very easily.

    Thanks for this.

    Betty is correct — these children are being taught to hate other people for who they are.

    I really hope that each of the quartet get triple-digit jail sentences without parole for this hate crime. This kind of savage gang rape/hate crime should have no place in a civilized society.

    I don’t disagree with either Betty or Jovan. My comment was shocked horror at how well they’ve learned these despicable lesson and at such a young age. They’re so young, it makes my heart break.
