WHAT IN THE WORLD IS GOING ON?
I read the headlines:
Police: Up to 20 people witnessed gang rape
Authorities in Calif. city say nobody did anything to stop attack
No kidding. The article reports about a gang rape and beating of a 15-year-old sophomore girl, that occurred outside during a Homecoming dance at Richmond High School in Richmond, California. The attackers are said to range from 15 to 25. According to reports the girl was on her way to meet her father who was picking her up, when she was invited to drink with a group of her classmates. The girl agrees to have a drink with them when she is attacked, and according to the article as many as 20 PEOPLE watched and did absolutely nothing. She was found naked from the waist down and semi-conscious behind bleachers. They even suggested that some of the witnesses and participants recorded the crime on their cell phones and may have posted it on the internet.
Twenty people may have just watched it go on and then walked away! So many! So heartless, cold and disconnected!
I read that a month ago protesters in Guinea that had gathered at a sports stadium were systematically attacked and raped. According to the BBC, on September 28th, 157 of the protesters died, many of them trampled to death. Watch groups and activists say that because the police blocked the exits and because the rapes (many of them gang rapes by the police) occurred at the same time, they believe there was some type of permission granted to attack and sexually violate these women.
The violation of rape is a life-long mental and emotional scar. It is a vile subhuman act of pure evilness. To know that our teenage boys are capable of doing such a heinous act against one of their classmates is both grotesque and heart breaking. I was so enraged after reading that I wanted to spit (and then go out to Richmond, find them and slit their throats – I don’t care if they are minors).
Then to turn around and read that a government kills 157 of their own people and raped the women! It’s just too much. I’m so angry right now, I’ve given myself a headache.
