Terrible School Incident in Gdansk, Poland

fed up  
28 Oct 2006 /  #1
A 14-year-old schoolgirl from northern Gdansk committed suicide after she was stripped in front of her class by five boys, who then simulated the girl's rape, Polish police said.

"On Friday, when the teacher was out of the classroom, five boys undressed the girl in front of her classmates and then started to touch her intimate parts and simulated the sex act with her," said Jaroslaw Sykutera, a spokesman for the Gdansk police.

"One of the aggressors recorded the incident on his mobile phone," he added.

Some of the other girls in the class tried to help the girl, but she was only able to break free from the boys after they had stripped her.,21985,20646295-5005961,00.html


it's interesting that this Aussie newssource reported this as happening on Friday. Funny... I am in Szczecin and hear about it on Friday mid afternoon from friends. There was no school on Friday for students here, so they could get counsellors in.

Its hard to know what to say about a report like that....I'm shocked even in the UK such a thing wouldnt happen in a class full of kids and kids here are very advanced...personally I think the little bastards should get life!

The above story is definitely horrible. The brother will have to live with his guilt because if he said anything it may've prevented her suicide.

Kids here in the US have serious problems as well. Except, they use guns.

I spoke about this yesterday on another thread.

It was the Headmistress who called the teacher out of class and didn't replace her with a substitute. But another teacher was keeping an eye on the class from time to time.

The incident took place and no pupils said or did anything. When the teacher came back the girl had left the school and still no-one in the class said anything. It was only when a girl started crying that anything was said.

When I was at school we weren't left alone for even five minutes.

It's the school that should carry responsibility for this.

According to the education minister it's all down to pornography

You can't blame it on anything but parenting. Pornography's been around for years. he's an idiot.

At our school, many years ago, we operated a vigilante system, any of our year/mates were picked on, 1/2 dozen of us used to confront bully..........explain where they went wrong, and then used the subtle hint of a swift brutal response ...if they stepped out of line again.

Needless to say, we never actually had to do anything whatsoever.

Am afriad, believing anything that comes out a of a politicians mouth is not really on, they choose the easiest option, best sound bite, but there are many other factors, all involved from all aspects, are virtually equally guilty, a very very sad day for all her family and friends, indeed for Poland, and that a little girl felt the only way out was to take her own precious life.

Is Poland any worse/different from other EU countries..........probably not.

Im sorry but the worst thing that could have happened whilst a teacher was abcent from class for any time - were a few swear words on the blackboard or someone got hit with a flying book...or in the worst case senario a fight...but simulated rape and to be degraged in such a way......thats an all time low and really does upset me and im not one to get upset easily. Im a woman and if I saw a girl in my class being stripped of her clothes I would have flown in anger and rage at the boys doing it....I dont understand why the other girls couldnt stop it....

I dont understand why the other girls couldnt stop it....

In the last few days, that question was one of the most frequently asked questiones in the country, and still nobody knows how to answer it. I'm shocked and angry at those oppressors as well as on the rest of the class, that did nothing to help that poor girl.

That is truly awful...i've never read anything so upsetting in a long while. I'm with Shelley though, back when I was at school, the teacher left the classroom and it was party time, we used to sit on the desks, chat with each other, get out the walkmans or gameboys and generally enjoy the sudden, unexpected free time...

I dont understand why the other girls couldnt stop it....

These days, we're in a walk on by society, people in London will step over someone lying on he floor bleeding and only worry that they might have got blood on their Jimmy choo's. Or in Belgium, a man asked a few kids on a bus to stop making noise, they stabbed him to death and the 30 other passengers on the bus promtly alighted at the next stop.

I just feel like we all think, "thank god it's not me," rather than "oh my god, what can i do to help" these days, sadly. :(

I remmeber at school, when I was 13 i was hung by ankles out a fifth story window by two 18 year old drunk prefects!!! After they pulled me back inside and left me on the floor shaking. They returned to the TV room to watch TV, meanwhile I went to the communal kitchen filled the kettle up and switched it on. When the water boiled I removed the top of the kettle marched into the TV room and threw the boiling water at them, unfortunately/fortunately they moved out the way. But I was left alone after that.:)

BLOODY HELL CASPER !!!! I should think you'd never forget it..

Now that your older and probably bigger than them, why don't you track them down and get you revenge?

The crazy thing is that form of bullying stopped that day. However, the institutionalised bullying continued for ages. Good example, if we talked after lights out or messed around, the seniors could set us punishments like a 3 mile run before 8 am. Or change-backs, where we would have to dress into our uniform, CCF kit, sports kit, PJ's and back to uniform. Imagine having to do 15 change backs...aaarrrrgggghhhh.

seniors also taxed any food, ciggys or whatever they wanted from you. Then there was the running man which basically involved running down a 100 metre corridor whilst people threw hockey balls, rugby balls or whatever at you whilst also trying to take you feet out with hockey sticks. The joys of the English private school system.

It all back fired and I was expelled at 16 for violence and dealing drugs (cannabis, how dumb). So went straight from rich posh toffee nosed school onto a new-age traveller site for a year and finally back to the state school system. Ahhh fond memories of school, made me the lunatic I am today. sigh....

I asked my missus about bullying and she said she never experienced any as a school kid in Poland. mabye she was lucky or mabye times have changed.

mabye she was lucky

I went to Polish school and it was a good experiance and I really feel sorry for all the people who had to suffer so much. That's just not fair and it scares you for life - awful.

I didn't know how bad it was, but I am beginning to see that.

How could any of the other kids live with themselves for not intervening? A class full of people should have been able to stop that happening. They should jail the criminal and throw away the key. Is Gdansk a very rough city?
