Wait... Why does a eight year old know what rape is?! O_o Or "being naughty"...
I prefer my cousins who just started to ask me (age 14 and 12) what sperm and pornography is!

*sigh*. If she says she wasn`t forced into it, then that`s that. Case closed. She wasn`t hurt, the boys are only 10, move it along.

Great, playing "Show me your and I`ll show you mine" counts as RAPE these days?

Hasn`t she just admitted she was lying to the court?

Naughty boys do show off their penises, curious kids do ask to see girls bits, but here the kids used the scooter to blackmail the girl into nudity, she also felt bad (the sweets show that. They may be a bit more than curious kids, just saying.

[quote]WTF is an old bailey damn British stupid court names.[/quote]

It`s only stupid as long as you remain ignorant of its meaning.

A bailey is the area within the outer walls of an old type of castle (motte and bailey). The bailey could be several acres in size, enclosed by a defensive palisade. It was an obvious symbol of the authority of the lord of the castle, who would hold trials within it, and the word remained in use for an area of authority for a while after motte and bailey castles were superceded by stronger types of castle.

It`s likely that the old bailey was named that way because it was within what had been a bailey for a castle.

It`s not certain though. It`s been there for something like 800 years (not the same building, but a court in the same place) and that`s long enough to lose any record of why it was called that, if there ever was a record of that.

It`s the main criminal court for the UK.

"She said she had lied to her mother about what had happened because she had been "naughty" and was worried she would not get any sweets."
I don`t know why, but that sentence just infuriates me. The Iron Fist children are clutched in because of GODDAMN CANDY!

Man, when I was a kid i just ate dirt and vandalized public property, this poo sucks. Not saying anyone is guilty of anything, other than some apparently lying which children do all the damn time. It`s going to be impossible to close this case when the kids insist on not telling the truth to keep themselves out of trouble. Court is meant for adults...though bad stuff does happen amongst younger people. It`s difficult stuff.

Wow, this story is just all over the place o.O How can the judge even make a ruling if there is almost 3 different stories going on. Also, D: at the thought of a f*cking ten year old actually raping someone. For some reason I just don`t see that :/ But who knows.

This was taken to court ? Wouldn`t even a cursory exam from a nurse trained to detect signs of rape been able to tell ? Geesh

I agree that taking this to court is more traumatic for all the kids involved .When I caught my son playing Dr.with a little neighbor girl when he was about 5 I didn`t freak out at all.I think it would have just scared them both and given them some kind of complex.

She`s too young to even know what rape is. I bet her mother questioned her about where she was, the little girl told a lie, then her mother`s imagination thought the worst and questioned her daughter further and the little girl just kept going along with it.

i doubt she went to her mother and said "I was raped" or "those boys did bad things to me"

idk...

So what I`m saying is that making the girl go to friggin COURT over something this silly will traumatize her much, much more than if they left the whole issue alone. Now she`ll learn that she`s a bad girl for ever being curious about sex.

Goddamn it, they`re kids! They don`t know what the heck they`re doing and chances are nobody was getting hurt.
I was caught playing doctor with a boy as a young kid and I was completely traumatized when the adult scared the living crap out of me. She called me a whore. I was 8. She didn`t even ask my side of the story, she only talked to the boy, who probably made it sound like I raped him or something, when it was all his idea to begin with. But everything would have been fine if the parent didn`t go ape-poo about it. She really made me hate myself for nothing.

"This also casts a shadow over girls who are actually assaulted since now lawyers will try to turn it around on the girl using this case a a precedent."

You`ve never seen a rape trial before have you? This case is not a precedent by any stretch. The defense lawyers pretty much always try to make it look like "buyer`s remorse" when a female charges rape.

looks like girls are learning they can lie to make themselves look better after being a little bit naughty at an earlier age. usually doesn`t happen till after a college frat party.

This is also just kids being curious. I`d bet a larger portion found out about the opposite sex by something similar to this

Scum Kids, Scum women... whilst Rape is an awful crime, it beggars belief as to how many mens lives are ruined by females crying Rape, when all was consensual.

The boys learned a lesson earlier than most. Girls lie to get what they want.

This is sad. This girl almost ruined these kids just for some sweets? If she was going to lie about being late she couldn`t say she got caught up with schoolwork or friends or something?

This also casts a shadow over girls who are actually assaulted since now lawyers will try to turn it around on the girl using this case a a precedent. I hope her parents sit her down and have a serious discussion about the consequences of her lies and how bad it could have been for the boys.
