That first coat…
Charda Gregory abducted, humiliated, violated, restrained, scalped and tortured.
If this were reversed, with black police officers who were sworn to uphold peace and justice but instead were documented victimizing a white woman (who was already a victim), this news would have trumped the Olympics!
Truncated version: drugged at a party, abducted to a motel, wakes up during unwanted sexual violation in a motel room full of strangers, fights like hell to escape, motel employee calls the authorities, she gets arrested for destroying motel property and it just gets worst from there.
Every officer who participated in it and even those who witnessed it and did nothing should be punished but instead they just fired the woman?
No rape kit, no police report on the people inside the motel room, no investigation of her claims, no accountability for missing motel entry records, no video from the motel but she gets detained for fourteen days?
(Btw, when did your tax dollars begin purchasing Abu Ghraib type water boarding chairs?)
that fact that revenge porn and leaking of women’s nudes exists at the same time as the readily accessible porn industry is an explicit example of the ways in which women are viewed as sex objects for male consumption. when men are denied the right to our bodies, they steal it. having access to porn literally anywhere at any time for free still doesn’t stop them. to them, it’s their god given right to access women’s bodies at their whim and when we refuse we’re punished for it.
