*TRIGGER WARNING FOR RAPE*
"Go ahead and call the cops- they can’t unrape you”
Imagine being a 13 year old girl who has been raped. By multiple boys. And your rape was filmed and then shared on Facebook, where an audience of thousands of anonymous users watched your personal strife. The next step would be to go to the police – and so you do. And their response? To ask what you were wearing. And then dismiss your rape, saying there’s not enough evidence to proceed.
That’s what happened to a 13 year old young woman who was raped two years ago.
She was the victim of Roast Busters, a group of boys who secretly filmed themselves gang raping intoxicated underage girls. They then humiliated these women by bragging on Facebook – posting videos and sharing the personal anguish of these women with an audience of thousands.
The police are saying there’s not enough evidence to convict these Roast Busters, so they won’t charge them. But, it’s now come to light that one of the rapists is, in fact, a local police officer’s son. And that in the past few years 4 victims have gone to the police – and their voices were consistently ignored.
It’s clear that the police force isn’t doing its part to find justice for these young women. These young women are being dismissed by the official body that is supposed to support those in need – and they have nowhere to turn to because of a lack of proper support services for victims of assault.
That’s why we need Prime Minister John Key to step up and do the right thing.
