Whenever I Complain About the State of the Culture...

Someone says that crime is actually down. That may be, but there is still something wrong with the culture. 5 charged in gang rape of girl, 7, in NJ apartment
TRENTON, N.J. (AP) -- Two men and three teenage boys were charged Saturday with gang-raping a 7-year-old girl who was sold by her 15-year-old stepsister during a party at a crime-ridden apartment building in the state's capital, police said.
Maybe the total number of crimes is down. But the level of depravity this story highlights is hard to believe.
Police say the 15-year-old girl went to a party with some men at Rowan Towers on March 28 and the younger girl tagged along because she was worried about her stepsister's safety. They say the 15-year-old sold sex to men and boys there, then took money to let them touch the younger girl. They say the touching turned to forcible sex as at least seven men raped the 7-year-old.
This is what passes for a good time.

I can't say anything else. Just read the details for yourself.

The problem is that there's a publication bias here. This stuff has always been going on, it's just that before you didn't hear about it. Back in the network TV days, this would never have been important enough to mention on a nightly news cast, so would never have made it beyond a local news story. But with the advent of 24 hour cable news, and then the internet, this gets broadcast across the country.

Just because you're hearing about it more doesn't mean that it's happening more.
