NJ 7 yr old, pimped by step sister.

This whole thing is just crazy. Like animals rutting, except even those only go after ones "in heat", so this is even beneath animals. What's also distressing is the attitude displayed in the community about it.

Little girl gets dressed and leaves gang rape scene, found outside party, crying.

A horrifying case - a gang rape of a
7-year-old sold by her teenage stepsister to armed men - grew more
bizarre when the girl's stepfather showed up outside the Trenton
courthouse Thursday to say that three of the five accused men had
actually tried to help the girl.
He was summoned to the courthouse by family
members of the suspects, who have his phone number on speed dial, a
seemingly strange alliance amid a crime that has inflamed a poor
community.

... five men and boys have been arrested on suspicion of raping the girl.
The other suspects are ages 13 and 14. The 15-year-old stepsister also
has been charged with promoting prostitution.

...According to police, the 7-year-old was prostituted out by her
15-year-old stepsister, who watched as she was raped by as many as seven
men and boys at ... a vacant apartment in
the crime-plagued public housing complex not far from the New Jersey
Statehouse.

...The confusing case had already strained relations
among police and residents and management of the troubled Rowan Tower
downtown apartment building where the crime took place.
"They think because we are poor that they can ruin our lives," Tracy Lewis said.

She might be better off if, by some process, she could be

removed from that family altogether. I doubt she can properly heal...if she can at all...in their presence. This probably isn't an isolated incident. This and worse goes on all the time and just doesn't get media coverage.

whose parents have died or abandoned them. Death or abandonment doesn't need to taken literally, I suppose. Foster care for now and adoption later might be ideal but she's going nowhere unless her current caretakers and others in her life have a sudden epiphany.

NM has non-orphan custodial, as you suggest.

You wrote the post and I'm reading it, so you may not have noticed your unintentional black humor:
"her current caretakers" Sad

That wasn't the best choice of words

Thank you for bringing it to my attention. I don't proofread very thoroughly and often, when correcting one error, create another. But, I wouldn't say she's exactly being raised by parents either.

No, you used the proper term.

Sad commentary on 'life in the big city'.
