Bragging Rights

The rape video on youtube - http://youtu.be/3Td0RVdJSmY


I am utterly disgusted by this chain of events. A gang style rape of a woman. These men deserve to be punished to the full extent of the law. What bothers me most about this, however, is that there was not urgency in this case until it started to be catipulted into the media. Why did the government wait to react until the media began pressuring them for answers. I can't help but think that if the media hadn't pressured the government to take action against these men, they would still be free and bragging about their actions.
