Youth Outlook: Richmond High School Rape

By Jorge Rivas Nov 09, 2009

It’s been two weeks since the rape of a 16-year-old victim at Richmond High School. The crimes made headlines across the nation and we heard from school administrators, Richmond police and even elected officials. We heard very little from the students at Richmond High and the little we heard was mostly negative comments picked up from MySpace profiles. Youth Outlook, a newspaper written for and about young people, went to the Richmond High during a rally, in support of the girl who raped to see how students felt about the rape. Check out Youth Outlook’s short radio story to hear perspectives from young students at Richmond High.
