This piece is part of a daily “What the Fuck of the Day” series here on Antigone Awakens, where I briefly discuss one thing each day that has me seriously saying, WTF?!?!
I’m just…I mean…i…
I’m honestly sitting here in the coffee shop with my jaw dropped reading this story. Two sixteen year old boys and a fifteen year old boy raped and otherwise sexually assaulted a TWELVE YEAR OLD GIRL…AT GUNPOINT.
They also videotaped the attacks and POSTED THEM ON FACEBOOK.
Even though the girl went to the hospital and filed a police report the day after the attack (on December 15th, 2012), and the boys posted the video on their Facebook pages on December 17th, 2012, they weren’t charged until May 17, 2013 – SIX MONTHS after the attack.
I’m just…I mean…
(1) What kind of world do we live in that kids are raping even younger kids with such frequency???
(2) What kind of world are we living in that these three teenage rapists found it acceptable to tape the attacks, let alone POST THEM ON FUCKING FACEBOOK?!?!?!?
(3) Can someone PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE explain to me how it took SIX MONTHS for these boys to be arrested and charged when there was VIDEO EVIDENCE of the attacks!?
WTF WTF WTF
Till next time,
