    TX - Boys, 11 and 14, Charged With Sex Assault on Woman, 60

    Boys, 11 and 14, Charged With Sex Assault on Woman, 60
    Tuesday, December 11, 2007
    The boys wore bandanas and gloves when they broke through a window in July, and one of them tried to sexually assault her but stopped when a heart device was triggered, Detective Scott Stanfield said.
    The boys were charged with burglary with intent to commit sexual assault. The boys had a kit that included items to restrain the victim, Stanfield said.
    A 15-year-old girl and a 16-year-old boy were standing outside the victim's house serving as lookouts...

    It seems like sexual assaults are starting at younger and younger ages. Is it true? Or are we just more aware because of instant news through cable, satellite, and the internet?

    I really think kids are hyper-sexualized in today's Western society. Sometimes I am shocked at what I see on television during times when kids are still awake. Then of course there are violent and sexualized video games. Kids are left unattended...bored and ready to get into trouble.

    If something is not done, I wonder where our society will be in 10, 20, 30 years?

    The assault stopped when a heart monitor went off. I wonder if that is because:

    1. They were scared she would die, and stopped the attack.
    2. They were scared it would bring the police, so stopped the attack.

    Although unlikely, it would be nice if it were due to extreme fear of monitors in general - since they now have to wear them.
    FUN... is a renewable resource!

    I am kindof curious about the look-outs, which included a female juvenile. How did this situation get set up?

    Maybe the lookouts didn't know about the sexual assault. Maybe they thought it was "just" a robbery.

    The look outs were a 15 year old girl and a 16 year old boy. I'd bet anything they knew exactly what is going on and they need to be charged with conspiracy. These kids are going to learn by getting away scott free. They are a disgrace; a 60 year old woman, what were they thinking?

    I was just reading another article on the increase of teen pregnancy. Sex in teens is thrown at them from nearly every facet. You see it all over TV in commercials, shows, music videos, news reports, video games, internet, etc. That was the 80's. In the 90's, there was a growing trend in cases of rape. Now, there are cases of sexual assault, but occuring from kids younger than 16.

    When I was a teen, movies like Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Last American Virgin, Porky's, etc. All of those movies had a theme of teens having sex. Today you have movies like American Pie. But we can't blame it all on movies. After all, there's internet buzz out there. Things like 2girls1cup.com. Though the end of that is quite disgusting, (If you haven't seen this internet gem, don't. It can make someone with a cast iron stomach puke) the beginning starts off in a sexual manner with 2 girls getting quite frisky with each other. Access to things in a sexual manner is becoming easier and easier. 20 years ago, if I wanted to order a sex toy, I'd have to find some sex mag that listed a seller for it. Today, I can easily search online for something or if that wasn't fast enough, I could drive probably within 25 miles and find a sex shop (there are tons in metro Georgia these days).

    So in my viewpoint, we can't expect teens to restrict themselves from having sex if we continue to throw it in thier faces.

    I have to say I disagree with you, Gman. Sex has been a constant since the beginning of human interactions. It is a parent's job to protect their kids from this "onslaught". My parents strictly monitored what I watched, wore, hung out with, etc. I couldn't even watch Dawson's Creek...and we're not religious at ALL. I had plenty of freedom...when I was emotionally ready for certain things. I thank them every day for it.

    Ok. So can you name one show on TV today that doesn't hint at having sex? I can only think of shows on Nickelodeon. And when you were a teen, do you remember seeing commercials suggesting better sex through drugs like Viagra, Cialis, Enzyte?

    Sure sex has been a constant from the beginning of time. At one time in history, it was ok for a man of 20 to marry a 14 year old. Times have changed and they keep on changing. It's a matter of a view for if they changed for the better or worse.

    Sex has been a constant, but it hasn't always been so readily available at such a young age. For instance, porn. Years ago, porn was in print. Kids found a magazine and passed it around. A limited amount of kids saw it. Stores generally (hopefully) wouldn't sell it to children, so they didn't have access to it unless they came across it by chance.

    Now, children are on the internet all the time. They type in "toys" and they can get to porn sites. Kids are seeing sexualized behavior before they are old enough to process or understand what they are seeing. What was once a "rite of passage" -- seeing naked breasts in a National Geographic or getting a glimpse of some pics in a nudie magazine -- is now nothing compared to what they see on the internet. They may not even be searching for it. At age 4 my daughter typed girls.com in the search engine, looking for a site that would have games for girls. It was a porn site.

    There used to be a time when a sex scene at 9:00 at night consisted of a kiss and a fade to black. Now that same time slot, when lots of kids are still awake and the TV is blaring away, has what is basically simulated sex on TV (I can think of several CSI episodes where I thought, I can't believe they're showing this on TV). I love CSI, but I'm not going to let my child watch it.

    Sex has changed. There is no doubt in my mind that children are becoming overly sexualized in our day and age due to media such as the internet, television, and video games. It's always shocking to hear of kids being involved in sexual assault, but it's becoming less and less of a surprise.

    It seems like a lot of kids are doing everything at younger ages now days. You name it and they are doing it. A lot of kids have a TV and computer in their room and no one pays any attention to what they are doing or watching.

    My seven yr old granddaughter has her own cell phone. I'm sure she has her own TV in her room too and the computer is upstairs. Heaven only knows what she is doing. Give her a couple more years and she will probably setup her own MySpace and meet some creep on line and talk to him on her cell phone. She is spoiled rotten as you can probably tell. Has time outs in her room instead of downstairs in a chair...big deal. My daughter doesn't have a lick of common sense where the youngest is concerned. I don't understand it but then it is none of my business except to worry that something awful will happen to her as she gets older.

    So glad the ladies monitor went off. Maybe the kids thought it was a line to the police station. That would be my guess. I can't imagine an 11 yr old being a part of this...it really is scary and horrible.

    Mr. E,

    I believe that we are just more aware of things like this because of our 24/7 worldwide "news' culture. I agree that kids are hyper-sexualized in Western society.

    Did 11 and 14 yr old boys really carry around kits back in the day to rape 60 yr old women?

    We can't tell from the article if sexual assault rape was the intended purpose. Obviously, they went there with items to restrain someone, but robbery could have been the original motive.

    I actually think plenty of perverse things like this happened back in the day. We just didn't hear about them.

    My prayers for everyone involved in this crime. It is terribly sad when kids are so off track that breaking and entering and assaulting becomes a past-time.
