Got Rape ??? Occupy Wall Street urges rape cases to be handled internally
Another weekend and yet another allegation of rape at an Occupy protest – but more disturbing than the allegation itself is how OWS is handling it. In the latest case, the victim was afraid to speak out about the incident at all and said OWS handles sexual assault cases ‘internally’ and feared she ‘said too much already’ about the allegation. Why not just report it to the police?
“There seems to be an increase of rapes now,” Glenn said of the Wall Street protests.
“They’ve decided that they are just going to have to not really call them ‑‑ well, they’ll call them rape, but they’re not going to call the police because the police really would be a bad thing to call, you know. Why do that?”
The New York Post reports “A sex fiend barged into a woman’s tent and sexually assaulted her at around 6 a.m., said protesters, who chased him from the park.”
The Post interviewed one woman who explained that they don’t report the assaults. “We handle it internally. I said too much already,” she said.
“They did shine flashlights in the face of the most recent rapist,” Stu said.
“Brutality! Brutality! Brutality!” Pat jokingly chanted.
