You can't lock someone up for what they might do. Men commit more violent crimes than women. Lock up all men? Or just all black me since they have higher crime rates.

Please show me where I said someone should be locked up for what they might do. You can only lock up someone for what they have already done. Once they have been convicted society can then address how to handle them. My example was how a certain type of deviant behavior cannot be corrected.

Sometimes they're drunk college students who take a leak in an alley. Some places, "indecent exposure" like that can put you on the list.

Another story so bizarre and shocking that one has no choice but to believe there is no deity. Only an immoral incomprehensible act such as this could take place in the absense of any higher being.

Be the best person you can be, because this is the kind of repulsive sick world we live in clearly void of any diety that cares enough to stop it.

Why don't people ever say that about college rapists, who use alcohol-fueled parties as a ploy to commit serial rapes? What bout those frat boys, whose lawyers argue, that they have brilliant law or medical careers ahead of them, that shouldn't be sacrificed, just because Suzie and Janey and Becky and Shanelle chose to have too much to drink?

Obviously, there are others who are also raped, including men by men and very old women.

But attractive single young women make up the bulk of victims.
Can you share your source, preferably sources for this?

Watch you back, Delaware.
Not really. They'll most likely be tried as adults and sent to prison, not "day camp". They'll also likely become sex offenders for life. That means even when they get out of prison, they'll have that stigma and those restrictions put on them for the rest of their lives. I doubt they'll get off lightly. This is a high-profile case. That means that prosecutors and judges will look to get a conviction and make an example of them. There's no country in the world that incarcerates its youth more than the US. Are you from Brazil? You should know that we do things differently here. We have harsher punishments than the Brazilian criminal justice system, including life sentences, life sentences without the possibility of parole, and the death penalty, unlike Brazil. We're one of only 9 countries that has given juvenile offenders the death penalty since 1990.

If convicted of what they've been charged with, they'd all definitely have to register as sex offenders. The only possible way out of it is if they're somehow acquitted (doubtful given the amount of evidence) or if they get a plea deal with greatly reduced charges that don't require registry as sex offenders. I highly doubt that's what ends up happening. I think they all plead guilty after being charged as adults and get prison time and sex offender registration for life.

Couple of years of volunteering at a Rape Crisis Center.

But if you haven't done that personally yourself, to observe this dynamic, you can google women raped and murdered.

And look at their photos.

It's a demographic.

Typically, also, women who are date raped are young dating women, often college girls (so, unlikely to have a photo attached to a news story. But they are college girls. Not 85 year old women).

I don't know why I have to explain this; this is one of those things you can observe just by living on Planet Earth.
