A 16 year old girl drinks to much. She is intoxicated and trusts the guy who leads her to a room. She enters the room where it’s totally dark. He leads her to the bed. Because she is totally drunk her instincts probably don’t kick in.
There are actually 8 men in the room. And a GoPro.
They rape her.
“Turn her around.”
“Just like a piece of meat.”
And many more things Police will hear while watching the footage.
When Police knock on her door approx a week after because they have discovered the footage on the GoPro after having arrested one of the dickheads while spraying Graffitis she is shocked. She knew something has happened to her but didn’t recall exactly what and therefor didn’t go to the police. Afraid of not being taken serious.
Out of the 8 men 3 get sentenced. Maximum sentence is 13 years, the other two get away with 8 years and even less. Why did the one guy get 13 years? Probably because he was the one spraying the Graffiti… The other 5? Guess they were lucky…
Bottom line: While the girl is scarred for life the criminals who did this get away with basically nothing as they will be out in a couple of months on parole anyway. If you want to commit a crime to be stowed away in a comfortable cell with HD TV and other luxuries just rape someone. Because you’ll be out in now time. Don’t commit fraud. That will give you more time. Don’t get caught damaging stuff because that will give you more time. Don’t use illegal substances because that will give you more time…
Seriously? Wtf is wrong with our system? They filmed it. No doubt. She was unable to give consent. She was raped. She is 16. I sure hope they will experience heaps of what they did to the girl in prison over the short time they’re in there. Shame nobody will film it…
Just a little disclaimer: I’m really annoyed right now. This post is sarcasm and annoyance about something that is going on and although far away thankfully from where we live just makes me sick. Please do understand it the right way.
I’m fed up. Once again. This post will be all over the place because I am truly angry. Angry and frustrated!
Fed up by the system that seems to be worth the same shit everywhere: Nothing. It’s called justice system and yet justice is not done in so many cases. The victim is marked forever while the offender walks away able to have a pretty life in a pretty home with his pretty family… oh, and a pretty future of course.
We live in a culture that obviously accepts sex being forced upon someone as not as bad. We live in a society that believes financial fraud needs to be punished harsher than rape. We live in a society where judges believe that a rapist needs to get away with only a couple of months behind bars because of the huge impact the sentence could otherwise have on his future. Poor boy… After all he only raped a unconscious girl. As his father already said, why destroying his future for “only 20 minutes”…
We live in a society where an ex student athlete can be the judge of a bloody rapist student athlete… Read the part about the judges notable cases! I bet the defenders partied after finding out who the judge would be for Mr Brock Turner! 3 months and he is out again! I have no words! No words! And yet, I will keep writing…
My head is spinning…
“The killer of Melbourne schoolgirl Masa Vukotic had an extensive history of violence against women and, the ABC understands, was out on bail at the time of the attack.”
This is how an article I’ve read yesterday started. And it makes me not only numb but also sick. When you continue reading it gets even worse and you start wondering what the justice system is really about… I’ve written a post about this a couple of months ago but reading this text stirs so many things in me yet again. How can it be? How can it be that criminals like him walk among us, like a ticking time bomb ready to do damage whenever they please to do?
The women he has previously raped or assaulted and Masa Vukotic will not have a second chance to a normal life. They will not have the chance for a plea hearing or for there sentence to be cut short. Masa Vukotic for sure doesn’t. Her family is grieving the loss of this young girl. And why? Because a sick pervert was left walking free although he should have been detained or supervised. Again I think that this is a life lost that could have been protected if the system would have done the right thing. And again I hope that lessons will be learned and things will be done differently in the future. Who knows…
One of the best things about blogging is the exchange with other bloggers, with people from all over the world and with all kind of different backgrounds. Of course it wasn’t any different with my post ‘Never Talk To Strangers’. The comments I got for this post were really thought provoking. Especially the one My Thoughts On A Page left with a link to one of her posts made me think (please read it and please reblog!). Can it really be? Can the numbers really be that shocking?
When I shared this post the other day I couldn’t stop thinking about it. I couldn’t stop thinking about what social network can do to you. But most of all I couldn’t stop thinking about rape, and the multiple issues with rape.
And here are my thoughts:
I saw this. I knew it would be heart wrenching. And it hit me. How hard must it be…
All that time you try to forget. All that time you try to work through it, try to find back to a “normal” life, trying to deal with the nightmares, the memories, the fear, the disgust, the shame, the pictures in your head
And then this happens.
Last week a 17 year old girl got murdered in one of Melbourne’s suburbs. The murderer handed himself into police after he… wait for it… raped a woman in a Christian bookshop… But that was not all…
