    I think your concern for the perpetrators is admirable but equally disgusting. They're sex offenders. Giving them a warning isn't what you do to people like that. They don't deserve to be "out and free in society". I don't think so. Their punishment is so light that I think they'll take it for granted. It tends to happen with sex offenders.

     Don't you think the victim would be happier knowing her rapists got punished? Instead they're getting a light punishment, one that is resulting in death threats to the victim.

     We'll see though. If they never does this again, then okay I see your point. That doesn't absolve them in any way though. It shouldn't.

     I still say they should be incarcerated for a nice chunk of their lives, but if juvenile detention somehow changes them for the better (which I doubt), then fine.
