Victim blaming in the New York Times

Vicious Assault Shakes Texas Town

An 11 year old girl is raped by a gang and we're supposed to care that
They said she dressed older than her age, wearing makeup and fashions more appropriate to a woman in her 20s. She would hang out with teenage boys at a playground, some said.

And also:
“It’s just destroyed our community,” said Sheila Harrison, 48, a hospital worker who says she knows several of the defendants. “These boys have to live with this the rest of their lives.”
Yes. Those poor poor boys. Who are accused of violently raping an 11 year old. The attack that they recorded on their cellphones, by the way. I feel ever so terrible for them. Oh wait. I completely feel nothing but contempt and disgust for those men. And great amounts of sympathy for the 11 year old girl who was raped.
