Boys aged 10 charged with raping eight-year-old
So now we come down to this, 10 year olds raping 8 year olds.
What has happened since I was 10?
I didn't know a damn thing about sex at that age, let alone have an urge that was so important I had to satisfy it at at such a cost.
Two 10-year-old boys have been charged with raping a girl in west London.
Each faces two counts of attacking a female under the age of 13 following advice from the Crown Prosecution Service, the Metropolitan Police said.
They were arrested after an eight-year-old alleged she had been assaulted while playing in a park off College Way, Hayes, on 27 October.
The pair, who cannot be named for legal reasons, are due to appear at Uxbridge Magistrates' Court on Thursday.
Police were called by the girl's family after she returned home from the park.
Officers from the specialist Sapphire Unit, which investigates allegations of rape and sexual assault, have been dealing with the case.
Should we put it down to TV, films, computer games? They trot all that out every time there is a violent crime, but we had violent crime before the access that children, or adults - come to that - have now.
I don't know why it is happening (a 12 year old was charged with raping his teacher about 4 years ago, so it's hardly brand new) but I do know that society has some serious needs it has to address in order to protect children......I've known that for a long time, but I thought the problems stemmed from perverted adults, to hit the realisation that their peers can be just as dangerous is just awful.
