Police search for suspects who tortured 4 for hours, raped woman
At present I cannot even comment on this event that occurred last week. Man, do we suck as a civilized people.
From what I gather of this story, a group of 5 men do a home invasion in which they terrorize the people within for about 4 hours including the rape of a daughter. What kind of sick world do we live in that this stuff happens? I would bet that the attackers knew the family, or at least knew of the daughter prior to this.
I keep saying it, but it appears nobody is listening . . . It seems that world-wide women are being victimized at an alarming rate. Where men used to respect women and leave them unharmed, now it seems that women are being harmed without necessity because they are women. I have no statistical information to support this belief, just my gut, which rarely is wrong. If you care for the women in your life, talk to them. Stress their need to be observant and recommend they be a little on the conservative side for their own protection. I do not mean to be “alarmist” but overall crime is running roughshod over civility everywhere, and maybe I am just immersing myself too much into the news lately, but it seems that violence is waiting around every corner for those unaware of their surroundings.
On the other hand, people tired of being victims are standing up against criminals almost daily, and sometimes actually winning. This may seem like a good idea. Just remember somebody usually gets hurt and try to make sure the “good guy” wins instead of the other way around.
The best defense any of us has is “observation.” Stop walking around with your eyes down to the ground and pay attention to everything around you no matter how insignificant it may seem. Hopefully you can see the problem coming before it becomes a problem.
Of course it could just be that I am an old man with far too much free time on my hands, and there is little reason for concern. It is possible. Not probable but still possible . . .
