The video below and accompanying news story are a reminder that not all cultural enrichment comes to us from the Muslim world. The following harrowing account describes the horrors experienced by a 14-year-old German girl at the hands of four young immigrants from Serbia. (Yes, I know they could still be Muslims, even though they’re from Serbia. There’s no way to tell from the information provided. However, most Muslims in the former Yugoslavia are now in Bosnia, Macedonia, and Kosovo, so chances are these are Serbian boys with an Orthodox background.)

The following Hamburger Abendblatt article from March of this year (also translated by Nash Montana) describes the incident that resulted in the court case featured in the video:
Four young men rape a 14-year-old in Hamburg
The victim was living in supervised conditions by the youth welfare office
Hamburg. It is the kind of case that gives chills to even a hardened cop. In Harburg, a 14-year-old girl was raped, abused and afterward she was thrown outside in icy cold temperatures clothed only in a blouse and underwear. Three of the four offenders are sitting in jail. One of them is only 14 years old. Among other things, they are now accused of attempted murder.
The incident happened on February 11th. According to information provided the Abendblatt the 14-year-old lived under the supervision of the youth welfare office in a guided youth home. On the day of the incident she was brought together with four young men in an apartment by a 16-year-old female friend Alcohol was being passed around. The girl was so drunk that she passed out.
What happened next was recorded on various cell phones. Three of the four men from Serbia pounced on the helpless girl and raped her. The abuse, so it’s said, was filmed by the female acquaintance of the victim. Then the still-passed-out 14-year-old was taken outside into the courtyard and left there. Temperatures at that time were barely above freezing point. The girl was found in time and was brought to the hospital with hypothermia. Her condition had been life-threatening.
The investigation was difficult. The abuse was determined in the hospital. The police put the special unit that deals with sexual crimes on the case. The girl apparently had no memory of the crime.
The case was first dealt with strictly as a sexual offense. Only later the attempted murder charge was added. The assigned judge was the one who determined that there were signs of attempted murder.
Investigators arrested three of the four offenders, among them the 16-year-old girl who filmed the abuse. Her cellphone that recorded the entire disgusting offense was also secured.
Police refused to say anything, and referred questions to the prosecutor’s office. Chief prosecutor Nana Frombach confirmed: “We are also investigating an attempted murder in conjunction with dangerous bodily harm.”
Two of the male offenders are still sought after. Among them is the only adult; he’s 21 years old. Both individuals are from the Harburg area. Possibly both of them have already left the country and are hiding in their home country.
|0:00||Almost like pop stars, the four alleged offenders|
|0:03||Enter the courtroom before the cameras were allowed to film.|
|0:07||Grinning, they wave at all of their extended family in the courtroom,|
|0:10||the relatives waving back to the reporters, and essentially,|
|0:13||it’s the girl’s own fault that it came to sex.|
|0:16||But the foremost guilty party is really the youth welfare office,|
|0:19||because the 14-year-old snuck out at night from a youth home to visit a party|
|0:22||here in Harburg. There, she was literally filled up.|
|0:26||(Kai Wantzen, court spokesman) As a consequence the victim was considerably drunk|
|0:30||and basically just lay there on a couch,|
|0:34||whereupon the decision was allegedly made to use her for sex.|
|0:40||Unprotected intercourse, penetration with objects, several cell phones making video recordings.|
|0:46||One of the accused just turned 14 that night. It was his birthday|
|0:49||that was celebrated behind this apartment door. His parents were not at home.|
|0:54||After the abuse the youths carried the unconscious girl into the courtyard.|
|0:58||All she wore was a blouse and her underwear.|
|1:01||Back then in February the temperature was below zero [Celsius, ca. 28°F].|
|1:05||This is an immediate life-threatening situation.|
|1:10||(Rainer Klohn, lawyer for one of the accused) All of the accused knew what they were doing,|
|1:13||and they were doing it anyway, and that is what’s so incomprehensible,|
|1:17||that in such a despicable manner…, there’s no other way|
|1:20||that even a defense attorney can formulate this… this girl was dealt with.|
|1:25||The girl woke up in the courtyard and screamed for help. Neighbors informed the police;|
|1:29||she was brought to the hospital with a blood alcohol level of 190 milliliters (1.9 per mil)|
|1:32||On the bench also sits a 15-year-old girl who was friends with the victim,|
|1:36||she as well had allegedly filmed the abuse with her cell phone.|
|1:39||Do these offenders even realize what they did?|
|1:42||The oldest, the 21-year-old to the right, immediately gave himself up to the police,|
|1:45||and he waived right for anonymity today.|
|1:50||He said ‘I did this and I am taking responsibility for it and everybody can see me here’.|
|1:56||In the court hallway a relative cursed at and threw something at the camera operators.|
|2:01||The court in the meantime banned the media and all spectators|
|2:04||until the judgment is read in the courtroom.|
|2:07||There are measures to prevent stigmatization,|
|2:10||in order to protect from shame the intimate areas of minor children.
