(Newser) – Shahmell Robinson, a 21-year-old man from Rochester, NY, is facing state and federal charges for allegedly sexually assaulting a 14-year-old girl on camera. The person who allegedly filmed the act on his phone, 22-year-old Jordon McCloud, has yet to be found, though authorities say the cell phone footage is incriminating: McCloud not only allegedly filmed the girl unconscious on a bathroom floor, but also turned the camera on himself and laughed, reports the Democrat and Chronicle. The footage somehow made its way onto Facebook.

The alleged rape happened at an apartment in Greece, NY. The victim told police she didn't remember having sex with anyone and had been drinking the night it happened. She says she woke up next to Robinson on a couch. Investigators have managed to seize McCloud's phone, on which there is another video of the girl passed out on a bed and yet another showing unidentified people in a car talking about the rape and acknowledging they knew the girl's real age, reports the Democrat & Chronicle in an earlier story.

How awful! Should the girl have made better choices, such as not drinking and making herself vulnerable around these guys? Yes. Does the fact that she was drunk make it okay for these disgusting men to rape her? Absolutely not! Two wrongs don't make a right! What's even worse is that they were adults, and she was a minor. Pigs! Rape is always wrong. Nobody deserves it. It's an awful crime that I have personal experience with.

The guy took advantage of her underage drinking it seems, or maybe spiked the drink with something....terrible thing for him to do.

From the mug shot, another young black male.I suppose he'll be another poor black youth who'll be imprisoned by a racially unjust legal system.
