Saratoga rapists should have been be treated like adults
As a graduate of Saratoga High School, I was disgusted and outraged by the actions taken by the school [“Editorial: Renew help for sexual-assault victims,” Opinion, April 25].
Punishment for a gang rape by three students was being kicked off the football team. When I was a student there, smoking and long hair got you kicked off the team. Now it takes a gang rape.
California’s law saying the boys can’t be tried as adults is unbelievable. What they did was an adult crime and they should be treated as adults. What they did was directly responsible for her death as were the pictures posted on the Internet. What is today’s youth coming to?
