A gang of schoolgirls viciously presided over the gang violation of their female classmate (17), stripping and beating her, and then subjecting her to every form of degradation, ultimately turning her over to waiting boys in an act of infamy sure to resound far and wide.
As if to cap their lack of taste, and/or sense, the part involving the naked girl being beaten and humiliated was uploaded to the Internet.
The video shows the unfortunate girl, naked throughout, stoically ignoring her captors, save their commands to perform, even as she is slapped, punched and kicked, all to the evident delight of the gang. This continues for seven minutes, with the gang excitedly making progressively more humiliating demands of her, and one point having her slap herself vigorously. What happens to her before and after the video must be left to the imagination.
The Chinese authorities have already detained four youths in connection with the case; two girls who fled are also being hunted. However, a total of eleven youths, seven of them female, appear in the video. Police at least will not have their work cut out in identifying the culprits – their school was apparently readily identifiable from their uniforms.
The incident came to police attention only when someone who came upon the posted movie reported it, seeing that a video of a naked girl being beaten and kicked might well be evidence of a crime. The video itself was posted an accompanying explanation to the effect that it was to bring the evil deeds to light, so presumably its provenance stretches back further back much than this.
Further, it seems police managed to extract details from a person familiar with the case, with it emerging that the incident apparently took place last summer; the gang apparently snatching their victim from a net café, taking her to a rented room and there abusing her, eventually calling the four boys over to make use of their captive, and filming the event on a mobile phone.
The girl victimised apparently dropped out of school without reporting her ordeal; she is said to be in care, though on the street groundless rumours have persisted of her suicide.
The school apparently became aware of what had transpired in January, and expelled two boys over the matter, but did nothing further, and did not report the incident for fear of damaging its good name.
The video may only have lasted seven minutes, but it looks as though the repercussions will last long after.
There are some photos of the outrage at the Chinese source (having attracted more than 600 comments it looks to be garnering quite a reaction); this via Heaven. The video itself has spread quite rapidly, but is probably liable to be deleted only slightly less rapidly; prospective viewers should be warned it is in quite poor taste.
