Sexual Violence

Band of Bollocks

fatigues2012

It’s been an embarrassing week for Britain’s armed forces. Following the news that soldiers were using Jeremy Corbyn’s image for target practice, 6 more have been arrested for an ‘alleged’ sexual assault against a teenage female soldier. I quote alleged because I believe her. In response to these events an army chief Sir Mark Carleton-Smith released a video in which he condemns such actions as “downright unacceptable”. He went on to say it was inappropriate to remark further on the individual cases but added:

“But I will say this: where serious allegations are proven against members of the army, including allegations of a violent or sexual nature, it demonstrates indiscipline that is wildly at odds with the values and standards that represent the fabric of not just our army but the nation’s army, the British army.”

I wonder the leaps one must take to actually believe the British army is a force for good that doesn’t routinely engage in sexual assault as part of their hazing rituals and only employs good decent non bigoted people to carry out their duties. The main objective of the British army is to keep the world prostrated to its superiority. They have outposts all over the world, during peacetime, and why? To remind the world the empire is still live and kicking. White people, without a single desirable trait, join the army to feel superior about themselves. All the domestic staff employed by the bases abroad are brown, they clean up after their white superiors and take orders, however small and so even the lowliest of personnel in terms of rank, feel like they’re the master.

For a short while in my late 20s I was engaged to a British armed forces man. Before he went on his first tour he was kind, or at least that was the impression he gave me. Coming from an army family myself (Pakistani) there was something of the familiar in him that I was drawn to although now I appreciate this wasn’t necessarily a good thing. He was from an army family too, going back at least two generations. He had fought it himself, didn’t want to join the forces because he believed it to be a mug’s game for people who didn’t have any other option. When his heavy metal band failed and he could no longer hold off the stern direction of his retired army dad, he joined the royal air force, unlike his younger brother, who had joined the paras as soon as he could (all he ever wanted to do was please his daddy).

What an eye-opening affair it was. Up until I met him I actually believed I was British and loved my country. I felt like I had a place here and white people on the whole were accepting of British born foreigners. It was he who put me straight. He said most white people put on a face for non whites, but the second our back is turned they switch. They’ll refer to us as the paki or coloured one, even if the person being referred to is a pilot in the royal air force. He came to me with a conundrum once, what to do when his staff sergeant refers to brown people as pakis? He felt a little put out because he felt it was personally disrespectful to him (because he had a paki in his possession?) but at the same time didn’t want to rock the boat. What could I say to this, I was still busy trying to survive well and didn’t want to draw attention to myself.

There were many things I let slide, or laughed off. He had a friend, Jamie, with a massive bald head and northern accent. When sober he’d make inappropriate remarks like “can I have a go on her next?” to my ex but when he was drunk, there was no filter. He’d call me a paki to my face and laugh at my ex saying our kids would be ugly. This was banter you see and I couldn’t get upset about it because then I didn’t have a sense of humour or he might get violent about it. There was a respect for bullying toxic patriarchy in that crowd that ensured victims never spoke up. I found out this ex had been disciplined for telling a female solider he could smell her period. I only found this out after I asked why she and her partner and friends were giving me daggers. I guess they couldn’t believe someone would be so desperate and pathetic as to legitimise him by being in a relationship with him.

There were some good people, I cannot deny this but they tended to be few and far between. I liked the corporal who was his immediate superior and his wife. They seemed to have an understanding of racism, even in the forces and made an extra effort to be inviting and friendly, I even cat sat for them once at Christmas. There were another couple of wives I really got on with and I still stay in touch with one of them.

I knew someone else in the army, on the clerical side and he always gave a good impression on behalf of the forces and condemned the people I told him about, saying they were bringing the armed forces to disrepute. For example, my ex and his brother would constantly talk about the tricks they’d pull on their peers, the rituals that almost always bordered on sexual assault. On a few occasions I had to object and call it what it was, rape, and how it wasn’t funny and how they were complicit in enabling and covering it up. I was told to get a grip, that “it’s only gay if they push back” and how this process was meant to sort the wheat from the chaff, if it really is too much for newbies they were always welcome to leave. I saw a clip his brother shared once on fb and was actually triggered by it, being a survivor of sexual violence myself. A young lad, couldn’t have been more than 19, clearly distressed but smiling as his pals piss all over him whilst he’s sat there naked, tied to a chair. They were throwing things at him and pawing at his body and all this kid could do was grin and bear it. Only real men take it like a real man, that’s their mantra in a toxic mostly male environment that is rife with non consensual activity.

After doing a tour in Afghanistan he came back with a sort of cocky confidence that scared me. Whilst he was there he’d commissioned an Afghan to make me a luggage tag with all 22 letters of my very Muslim sounding name on it, like he was saying “we’ve got one of yours”. As he described this unspoken exchange between the two men it made me feel sick to the pit of my stomach cos I had felt a bit like a trophy right from the beginning. He’d say things like “you’re safe now you’re on the white side” and “they’re always taking ours, so now I’ve got one of theirs” like I was just a piece of property to be coveted and appropriated by the best man, naturally white British.

I don’t know where Sir Michael got the impression the events of the past few weeks sit at odds with their values. Domestic abuse is 5 times more likely to occur in the armed forces, in an environment where toxic patriarchy thrives. When they return from tour they have a couple of weeks to holiday in a hot country to ‘decompress’ before they come back to the UK. They’re given a talking to by the padre on how to act when they are reunited with loved ones. They’re reminded that wives and girlfriends are human and probably don’t want to have rough sex for hours on end. They have to be TOLD. My ex’s mother would say it was part of the armed forces job to break the recruits down so as to rebuild them again into the soldiers they need. She and the rest of the family would roll their eyes at her boy’s exploits and even titter but no one ever called it out for what it was.

I’m glad I had that experience, in hindsight. It was revealing and formative, it made me into the person I now am. I am damned if I ever sit by and just listen to any of that shite ever again. I will object to racism every single damn time, I don’t care if it is a ‘joke’, I think ‘banter’ is for shit people who haven’t a single funny bone in their body, who invoke it when they’re being called out for being a nasty little bigot. I don’t care if you do think I’m a vampire sucking the fun out of your undeserved entitlement, look at the state of you will ya? And I will call a rapist a rapist and a toxic patriarchal environment when I see one.

They don’t get any more toxic or patriarchal than the armed forces.

Joshua Moon and Kiwi Farms implicated in promotion of NZ terrorist

Kiwi Farms have been linked to the New Zealand mosque terrorist; both Brenton Tarrant and Josh Moon frequented 8chan before Moon was essentially pushed out for having extreme views and interests even the other nazis couldn’t stomach, like paedophilia. In light of this information New Zealand and Australian authorities had requested Tarrant’s data from Kiwi Farms host Moon, who decided he would still broadcast the footage of the massacre despite it carrying a lengthy prison sentence in most countries. Even facebook, that great enabler of white supremacist fake news took down the 1.5 million copies made by users in the first 24 hours but Josh has other ideas.

Such is the entitlement and narcissism of Joshua Conner Moon, this was the reply he sent to New Zealand Detective Senior Sergeant John Michael.

narcjosh

Imagine making yourself an enemy of an entire country. This is the real face of Joshua Moon, an incel who has been hounding people on the internet for more than 5 years, who’s somehow evaded justice even though he is implicated in at least 2 mass shootings (not including NZ) and four suicides (of vulnerable people targeted for their protected characteristics). I have personally been on the receiving end of this harassment and bullying since 2013, when these freaks were still claiming to be protecting video games from girls and despite my protests that I couldn’t give a stuff about gaming, the abuse was relentless. It has left me housebound and afraid, as if my existing mental and physical disabilities weren’t difficult enough. I almost gave up a few times but I wouldn’t let them have that satisfaction.

I pleaded with journalists and politicians alike and was largely dismissed and silenced because acknowledging white supremacy would have legitimised my activism. Now we have multiple mass shootings and a crisis that could have so easily have been avoided had the mainstream media and the right-wing government heard our pleas instead of punishing us. They said we were entitled attention seekers but we suffered the most. At times it has felt like they’re working together, and I’m still not convinced that they’re not. Lives have been lost and many more ruined, their victims are countless.

For those of us who were able to reach out and connect, to do something, anything, to make these monsters accountable, we smoked them out where we could and identified them (work that should have been done by authorities) and doxxed them the way we had been doxxed. There were pleas from the usual liberals to consider our actions and how two wrongs don’t make a right but when it comes down to it, no one did a single useful thing to help us. Without the power to do anything else, we did what we could to claw back some control over our own lives. For example, in the UK we have the joint enterprise law that could see British users of Kiwi Farms charged with being complicit in a crime even if they did not personally commit it, but if they could have prevented it or indeed if they encouraged it, they can be handed a sentence equivalent to that of actually doing the crime. These ideas have been floating around for a while now but progress has been slow. We can only discuss it, the authorities have the power to act.

I thought to myself, something really deeply horrendously wrong has to happen for this to get the attention it deserves, to take Kiwi Farms and associated forums like Baphomet, Encyclopaedia Dramatica, lolcow etc etc off the internet using guidelines from the UN guide on prevention of genocide, if local laws fall short. There was the shooting in New Mexico but nothing happened even though two victims lost their lives. The attempted mass shooting in Canada didn’t get the attention it deserved either. The self-immolation of Chloe Sagal who felt she had no other choice but to kill herself in protest. The other suicides we know about and the ones we don’t. Now New Zealand has the world’s spotlight on it, Australia too, for birthing the terrorist who took 50 lives, some of them children. There are Kiwi Farm members in New Zealand. In Australia, Canada, the US, UK and across Europe. One report suggests the UK has 5 of the top 10 white supremacist extremist sites based here.

There weren’t too many of them back in 2013, that was the impression I got but platforms like facebook and twitter let them connect. We were suspended and banned for fighting back but they’re still on there. Tech giants have a lot to answer for.

Please do something before they do it again.

Things Tommeh Robbo could have been protesting this week (if he wasn’t a sly racist)

(CN for discussion of rape and child sex abuse)

A bunch of white rapists and child sex abusers were sent to prison this week. They are most weeks but perhaps it is the severity of these cases in particular that requires further attention, especially in the context of an unjust system that has failed victims and tarnished entire races in its attempts to cover up the extent of this malfeasance.

REMEMBER

One of the most horrific cases of child sex abuse to go to trial was committed by white men.

babyrapegangbabrapegang2

But grooming gangs are by far the only threat facing Britain’s children.

rapeapologistdetWhen the police used ‘culture’ as an excuse for their inadequate handling of grooming gangs they lied. Working in public services I had firsthand experience of the police in close quarters, at times working out of police stations, and I was told the same thing regarding domestic abuse. Only a racist would think some cultures practice abuse as a right and I said as much. Violence is violence. There are abusers and there are non abusers in every race, religion, creed. The police had a convenient excuse and they were propped up by sex abusers and bigots alike. Racism matters more to these people than justice for survivors.

If they’re not actively covering up and perverting the course to justice, they’re using their coercive power to abuse victims. Repeat victimisation from the very people we’re taught to seek out when we have been victimised. The system cannot be trusted, not when it is built on hierarchical power and control and exemplifies toxic masculinity.

rapistdcunningham

All of these cases are triggering for survivors, from the baby rapists, to the saviours who turn on us and the ones who think we’re insignificant, with every news report we are confirming a rape culture that is indifferent to justice and is actively invested in maintaining power and control.

Judge Andrew Stubbs said of the perpetrator below the scale of the depravity was hard to understand. I bet he would have, had the accused been a brown Muslim male. Then everyone would just shrug and say “savages, what can you say eh, kick em out”.

12 years for TWO MILLION IMAGES OF CHILDREN. Yes, he’s old, but that shouldn’t matter, he should rot in jail. He had weapons stored in his bunker. He’s probably got other weapons they haven’t found yet, that’s what weird creepy territorial men do, prepare for the unexpected. How many years was he able to operate undetected in order to amass his collection? Whilst everyone was busy blaming brown men this shit was able to track down and catalogue illegal images without setting off a single red flag anywhere? He must have had help.

This is the difference between white and Asian gangs. White gangs have been doing this for so long they have fail safe systems where one unlucky cunt takes the fall, if their downfall has been his doing. It allows the rest of them to keep calm and carry on. It fuels their desire if anything, to come so close to being apprehended and still get away with it.

rapistgcrossland

The other striking difference is the way white men tend to target very young children, including babies. From the gang at the beginning to the following excerpt, these children have had unbearable cruelty and violence inflicted on them. Why are racists so keen to erase this? Considering Bute was recently in the news for the rape and murder of 6 year old Alesha McPhail, and I imagine it’s not a very big place, is it not a matter of public concern we should see it in connection with another sickening crime so soon? What is social services like up there? Is there a social services? Is everyone related and in on it together? That’s where most sex abuse goes undetected in Britain, in the home.

rapistwrigby

The entitlement of white sex abusers has as much to do with the racist narrative as it is an excuse for authorities who don’t care. White victims for white rapists, because many of them do see it as their right. It inspires breathtaking comments like this one, by a convicted rapist:

rapistflg

He doesn’t actually think he’s done anything wrong. To him being a rapist is not the problem, being sent to jail is.

Like Florian the Romanian, Lord David Steel unwittingly revealed his own entitlement when he commented that he walked away from a meeting with child abuser Cyril Smith in 1979 assuming he had committed the offences but that it was nothing to do with him. He knowingly allowed it. Being a lord he didn’t think he should care about a nobody especially when the abuser was a man with power.

apologistdsteel

White on white sex crime, and white on poc crime has been misrepresented for far too long and it has become the foundation for these isles. We talk about Britain’s nooks and crannies with a nod to the BBC’s league of gentlemen, out in the stix it’s all a bit woo and weird but there is an uncomfortable grain of truth in it, insular communities find it easier to cover things up. We’re cut off from the rest of the world here and they want to make us even more of an island, the Brexiters, because they don’t like being told what to do, like for example don’t harm foreigners and foreigners are humans too.

The British sense of humour has a lot to answer for too, rape and child sex abuse are fair game but who’s laughing, apart from the perpetrators and people who want in with them? Brass Eye’s paedogeddon (from a current perspective) is another part of the narrative that pours scorn on survivors and allows the perpetrators an opportunity to laugh at them. Didn’t find it funny then, find it downright chilling now.

FYI: Kiwi Farms linked to at least 2 murders and 4 suicides

What good is law enforcement in the UK and US when a notorious neo nazi incel site is allowed to promote and enable such violent crimes, resulting in the deaths of vulnerable young people and adults, and yet still be allowed to continue to operate?

‘Thinspiration’ sites were condemned a few years back and taken off the internet when it appeared they were directly linked to the deaths of vulnerable teenagers. What is it about Kiwi Farms that protects them from the justice system? The fact that they are white men? Are the authorities hesitant to act because the ramifications of telling white men they cannot bully and threaten to kill or even kill minorities would have a knock on effect on the rest of society? Kiwi Farms is an extension of the white supremacist state, it would seem.

If the law says it is not possible (and I don’t believe it does), change the law.

Michael Jackson is an easy distraction

jackobow

It’ll be 10 years this June since Michael Jackson died. It doesn’t feel like it, I remember hearing about it as if it were yesterday. Perhaps this is why the focus has shifted back onto him, to remember him as he really was, in light of the MeToo movement, but I can’t help thinking it serves a purpose, this sustained attention. To be reminded again and again (much like we have been in the UK regarding Asian grooming gangs) of the crimes committed by one predator to the exclusion of MANY others, this many years after his death, when he no longer poses a threat is suspicious to say the least.

Consider the most widely reported and reviled predators in America. Bill Cosby immediately springs to mind. Harvey Weinstein. A black man and a Jew. Dustin Hoffman, also Jewish. Woody Allen, Jewish too. R Kelly.. you get the picture. I’m not at all saying they’re innocent, I believe their victims and condemn all those I’ve mentioned, I’m sickened by them all and it pains me to seek justice for them as racialised men but this is where we’re at with MeToo, a deliberate narrowing of the narrative. Have we forgotten about the Lost Prophets’ child rapist Ian Watkins? Where are all the exposes on him, channel 4? I’m sure we’d all like to understand how he got away with it for so long, how the cops didn’t believe his girlfriend when she reported him, the suffering she endured, trying to prevent the crimes he committed only to be tarnished by those she asked for help.

It isn’t the first time channel 4 has been caught fudging the script, they reported the difference between white and Asian sex abusers as though it makes the blindest bit of difference to victims what motivates their attackers. Malicious drip fed propaganda is still protecting sex abusers with the most power, in the establishment, heads of public and spiritual services, media conglomerates etc. They cannot be allowed to racialise sex abuse because the more we buy into it the more brazen they get. They haven’t stopped, they’ve ramped it up. They’re operating in plain sight whilst we’re all busy consciously and unconsciously putting things into pigeon holes so it’s easier for us to understand in this mashed up fake world.

Sex abuse knows no race, religious, cultural bounds. Those who are the most determined to paint a different picture, those most concerned with other races, and dead predators that are good for a few weeks of sensationalised reporting, unpicking wounds for their victims, drawing attention away from the children who are suffering right now, they are the real threat.

If we’re going to ban Jacko on the radio, don’t forget Bowie.

Lord Ahmed, Pakistani-Indian bakwaas, and a Twisted Firestarter

It’s about 6 months since I was banned from Twitter. I closed my Facebook account 2-3 years ago when I couldn’t take the racist rape threats going unpunished anymore. To say I feel disconnected from the rest of the world is an understatement. However, I am still poring over the news and reacting in real time to the horror show that is modern times. I just don’t get to share my thoughts with as much frequency.

I’m going to attempt to address that on this here blog. I haven’t the strength to write about all the urgent issues as they arise but I could do a round up of my ‘wtf moments’ for the week.

lordrot

Lord Ahmed, a ROTHERHAM based life peer (recommended by Tony Blair in 1998) has been charged with the attempted rape of an underage girl and assault on a 13 year old boy. Most people don’t read past the headlines, and the media knows this. Lord Ahmed is charged with a rape he is alleged to have committed between 1971 and 1974 when he would have been between the ages of 14 and 17. Whilst it is still an offence, it is not as clear cut as the media would have us believe. Working as a temp for social services in the early noughties we had discussions around youth sex offenders and whether it was ethical to treat a 14 year old boy with the same contempt as we would an adult male in his 30s. It is illegal to have sex with underage girls, even if the perpetrator is himself underage. However the mind of a 14 year old boy is significantly different to that of an adult male. They’re still growing and learning. Is it fair to condemn a young person to a register for the rest of their lives? Depending on the severity of crime and the mind set of the perpetrator, there’s a sliding scale of offence. Surely the punishment should reflect that?

If Lord Ahmed had committed these offences now it would lead me to question his role in Rotherham and whether he was directly involved in the grooming gang cases and whether he was being thrown to the wolves by the rest of his establishment buddies. As it is, I can only consider the actions of a 14-17 year old Nazir Ahmed, a juvenile, not fully accountable for his actions. This presentation of historic abuse in the context of the narrative; Ahmed was not a grey haired media mogul sticking his fingers in knickers without consent. He should be tried, of course, but not through the lens we’re being handed by the establishment and their media buds. Consider the way Lord Lester was protected by his peers when a prominent women’s rights campaigner, Jasvinder Sanghera disclosed the harassment she experienced at his hands, where he offered her a peerage in exchange for sex. They closed ranks, and refused to bow to pressure, instead casting doubt on her version of events. They did not believe her, as has always been the case on rainy fascist island. He quietly resigned a short while later, no doubt the turning tide threatened to drag him out to sea and he scarpered before it could.

The movements that have shaped our world the past few years are winning. This doesn’t mean the establishment are going to stop perverting the course to justice, their modus operandi is to exhaust victims and re-traumatise us over and over again so that we give up. We mustn’t.

modimonkey

It’s been a nerve wracking week given the tensions over the other side of the world in my motherland. I have lots of cousins, many of them dotted along disputed regions between India and Pakistan. I’d very much like for them all to live into old age but they don’t seem as bothered as I am by the escalating drama. It took my breath away to see Imran Khan inform his Pakistani parliament they would be handing back the captured Hindu pilot and the sound of their hands drumming the table in agreement seemed historic. On talking to Pakistani born relatives however I was saddened to learn this is how it always goes down, the Pakistani government and armed forces graciously hand back captives and India responds by chatting a load of guff and extending the threat in some sick display of power, as though Pakistan is weak for showing them hamdardi (empathy). India seems to have gotten ahead of herself. Right wing alliances between white nationalists and right wing Hindus only carry so far as their usefulness. India has forgotten this.

Apparently India demanded the cricket association disallow the Pakistani team or they would withdraw in protest, only to be told to get a grip or else pay a fine and face expulsion themselves. How old are you, India? Grow up.

I value Prime Minister Imran Khan for his resistance to war, it is pointless bloodshed. However I am of the opinion that humanity is so fragile and so precious that those who would deny it to others do not deserve to have their own humanity protected. The world must condemn India for its violent posturing, we don’t live in a world where we’ll be kowtowed into fighting for an arbitrary border anymore. We look back at those ‘great’ wars and the loss of life and shudder. We’ve learnt to become intolerant of the intolerant.

Modi must go, moderate Indian brothers and sisters. He is a relic and a laughing stock and is winding back the years. You belong in the future.

flint

Sad news today, Keith Flint of The Prodigy was found at his Essex home having apparently ended his own life. The sheer number of suicides over the past few years has been unsettling, and moreso to those of us who are battling to stay alive. With each one we’re reminded that even if our problems right themselves, if we’re able to thrive and do what we enjoy, it still might not be enough. I tell myself that poverty, poor health and unfulfilled potential drive my depression and if I could just tick even 2 out of 3 my mental health would be significantly improved. Then I think of Robin Williams, Anthony Bourdain and now Keith Flint, among others, and I’m stumped.

RIP firestarter, twisted firestarter, you gave me and my school friends many giggles pretending to be just like you.

The way we talk about child sex abuse

The unnamed 16-year-old suspect in the Alesha McPhail case has been found guilty of raping and murdering the 6-year-old, in July of last year. This follows months of agony for the family as a result of the defendant’s unwillingness to co-operate, even going so far as concocting a lewd plot where he was actually a victim being framed by the girlfriend of little Alesha’s father, whom the suspect claimed to have had sex with earlier the same day. He said she had taken his semen and planted it on the child’s body. What kind of disturbed individual commits these sorts of crimes and then attempts to cover it up by accusing a woman who testified that she loved the little girl? How could he hate her so much that he would be willing to tarnish her name and potentially send her to prison for a crime he committed? Hell hate no fury like a spurned man. Perhaps he thought he’d show her, for making him feel like an idiot.

As an anarchist I’m supposed to reject the prison industrial complex and look for other solutions, rehabilitation and the like, but this is a hard limit for me. Men who rape cannot be rehabilitated, you’re asking them to give up their entitlement. Men who rape children should be castrated, I’m not even kidding. The potential fall out from sex abuse of minors when they grow into adults is far greater than the pitiful life of a castrated rapist. Don’t want to lose your balls? Don’t rape.

Personal feelings aside, I want to look at the ways in which sex abuse is reported and who it serves. We should be examining the disparity in reporting of crimes that are committed by men of colour, compared to the native whites. For years we have had an overwhelming narrative that men of colour, specifically asian Muslim men, are rapists and this assertion has allowed for the kind of racism my grandparents fought in the 60s to come hurtling back, where even racial slurs are forgiven. When evidence of white perpetrated crimes has been highlighted, the finger pointers have been keen to make distinctions between the different kinds of sex abuse and what that says about the perpetrators. White sex abusers, apparently, have a ‘long standing interest in children’ whereas brown perps are motivated by more sinister objectives, as though this somehow excuses white predators because they mean no harm. These campaigns shit on the memory of victims like Alesha.

The way the British media has minimised white on white sex abuse has enabled the endemic rape culture that allowed for BBC personalities and members of the royal household, the football association, care homes and churches and schools etc to commit grave abuses of children for decades before the truth finally broke through. They all knew about Jimmy Saville. Similarly they all know who in the establishment and around it is still engaging in this depravity. THEY. STILL. KNOW. Which is why the narrative around asian grooming gangs has been so pervasive. They say that in this egalitarian society of ours, talent and the will to succeed wins out but I am convinced it’s more about what you know, and how much it’s worth to the perpetrators. You can be as smart and as talented as you like but if you’re a victim, if people take from you as opposed to you taking from them, you’re nothing. This disordered system has allowed for white male sex abusers to act with impunity, because nobody will believe their victims. Bute suspect was so emboldened by his entitlement he thought people would believe his sordid version of events.

Even the victims of the Rotherham grooming gangs were forsaken until the media and government saw fit to use them in their propaganda. The very same victims are routinely attacked by white supremacists for daring to speak out against racism on Twitter. Imagine, as a victim, to object to the dishonesty of this racialised narrative, only to be told you deserved it, you were asking for it? That is the reality of white sex abuse. As a victim of multiple assaults, some of them white perpetrated I’ve witnessed firsthand the repeat victimisation of abuse victims for speaking up. White supremacists only pretend to care about sex abuse. Same goes for the faux outrage in our tabloids; the same journalists covered up for rich and famous rapists, if in fact they were not engaging in it themselves. I won’t be forgetting Giles Coren twatting the Guardian’s Michael White on Twitter ‘but he did suggest you put your fingers in knickers without asking’ as was apparently relayed to Coren by his late father. They’re all in it together, it would seem.

If this crime was perpetrated by a pair of brown or black men we’d never hear the end of it but I’m intrigued to know how many of you actually know about it. I can’t stop thinking about the mother of two, mostly because it’s almost too horrific to bear and I hope justice will be served. The perps consider themselves above the law, the victim was convinced she had no other option. They were already implicated in the murder of another resident and in that case, as with this one, cops denied any wrongdoing had taken place, despite evidence to the contrary. This is the reality of white on white crime. There are two babies left without a mother to care for them, a community living in fear and law enforcement are using their limited funds as an excuse for their inaction. I don’t suppose cultural differences would cut it in this case but there’s always something. Surely a crime of this nature should be a priority? It would be if they were Muslims.
