A group of boys in Chicago are alleged to have raped a 15-year-old girl and streamed it on Facebook Live. Roughly 40 people watched the brutal assault unfold, and not one saw fit to do anything about it.
Cops only discovered what had happened after the victim’s mother approached Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson as he was leaving a news conference late Monday.
She showed Superintendent Johnson screenshots of the assault. He’s since told a local new station, “What’s even more disturbing, more than the fact that they did this, there were so many people that saw this and they didn’t pick up the phone and dial 911. That’s just not right and (we’re) working on it and trying to bring it to a successful resolution.”
He’s ordered an investigation, and the department asked Facebook to pull the video offline. They complied.
The freshman victim had been reported missing after she didn’t return to home from the store. Her uncle somehow came across the video of the boys raping his niece, and she wasn’t found until Tuesday morning.
According to authorities, she appeared to be in “good condition”. She was then handed over to her mother.
