It's complicated

Three or more high school boys rape a drunk, passed out classmate at a party in a neighbor's home, there are no adults at home. Eight days later, after photos of the act show up on phones around school, and the girl has posted suicidal notes, she kills herself.

Six months later her parents sue the school and the boys.

Bad all around. Bad boys for unspeakable acts. Bad girl for drinking. Bad boys for bragging about unspeakable acts. Bad parents for not knowing where their daughter is. Bad parents for not knowing their neighbors are not home. Bad parents for not being aware enough to get the girl therapy when she needed it. Bad parents for waiting to sue. Bad school for not expelling the bad boys when they circulated the bad photos at school. Bad police for a lack of due diligence. Bad bad bad.
