The Richmond High School Homecoming dance gang-rape involved approximately 10 attackers and 10 more witnesses…and no one helped the rape victim. The Keane Law Firm represents victims that have been catastrophically injured. News stories report a possible reason that witnesses did not intervene to help this victim and stop the rape. Journalists are reporting that by-stander effect may be the cause. By-stander effect is a phenomenon that occurs in groups (group-think) whereupon groups of witnesses do not intervene to save a victim during the commission of a crime or while in distress. There are different reasons this social behavior may occur. The Keane Law Firm recognizes victims that endure tragic events such as this deserve compensatory justice. We represent victims that have suffered brutal assaults and get them the compensation they deserve to help put their lives back together. Perpetrators should pay for the damages they cause.
The Keane Law Firm seeks to raise public awareness about child abuse, child abuse prevention and the rights of children that have been catastrophically injured. Please call the office or visit our website for a consultation.
