On Sunday 13 November, the Local section of the Denver Post reported at least one rape. The local news columnist, bleeding heart, and illegal immigrant spokesperson Nancy Griego had a column titled Children’s Hospital Colorado program gives young moms the start they deserve. The second paragraph reports:
A girl, 27 weeks pregnant, came in for her checkup last week. Her mother, grateful for this program, was there to support her. “Did I want this for my child? No. She’s 14.”
A few years ago I served on a jury where a man in his early 20’s was being tried for a variety of crimes. He would cruise the local high schools and give free drugs to young girls who would skip school and go off with him. One of the things he would also do is have sex with them.
It was explained to the jury that in the state of Colorado no one younger than 15 can give consent for sex. Let’s repeat that. No one 14 years of age or younger – regardless of what they say they agreed to or not – can give consent for sex. And therefore, anyone who has sex with someone 14 years of age or younger is committing rape – regardless of whether the young person says they agreed or not.
Now, go back and read that paragraph. This is reporting at a young girl–who might have been 13 years old at the time–has had sex. This means that the “father” of this baby is actually a rapist according to the State of Colorado. The state has determined that someone that young cannot understand the implications of sex to a degree that would allow them to give any kind of informed consent.
So now my question is – has anyone reported this rape to the police? to the District Attorney? to anyone?
We are – rightly – outraged at the neglect of abuse that went on at Penn State. Many people have lost their jobs and others are being charged with crimes for not forthrightly reporting rape and abuse to the authorities. So do we have the same situation here in Aurora?
The article explains that they actually ask the “young mothers” about rape and abuse:
At least 30 percent of these young mothers have experienced trauma, usually physical or emotional abuse, Scott says.
“And I think that’s very conservative,” Bethany Ashby, the CAMP psychologist, tells me later. “I see lots and lots of sexual abuse and lots of early rape, rape starting at age 6 and 7.”
I just called the hospital and spoke to their media relations person (14 November 12:00 MST). I asked if the rape and abuse that was clearly documented in this article was being reported to the police or district attorney and was told “I don’t know”. They have promised to get back to me.
I also called the Post and asked Griego to call me regarding my questions on the reported abuse.
A peace activist in a wedding dress to hitch-hike across the Middle East:
An Italian woman artist who was hitch-hiking to the Middle East dressed as a bride to promote world peace has been found murdered in Turkey.
The naked body of Giuseppina Pasqualino di Marineo, 33, known as Pippa Bacca, was found in bushes near the northern city of Gebze on Friday.
She had said she wanted to show that she could put her trust in the kindness of local people.
The whole being kidnapped, raped and murdered thing sort of negates the kindness doesn’t it. April’s Darwin Award Winner
Each and every year in just Britain – at least according to the Association of Chief Police Officers:
Up to 17,000 women in Britain are being subjected to “honour” related violence, including murder, every year, according to police chiefs.
It warns that the number of girls falling victim to forced marriages, kidnappings, sexual assaults, beatings and even murder by relatives intent on upholding the “honour” of their family is up to 35 times higher than official figures suggest.
The crisis, with children as young as 11 having been sent abroad to be married,………..
Yes – you read that right. 11 year old girls being sent to Bangladesh and Pakistan to become “brides”. Beatings and Murders occurring in Britain every day. And then the Archbishop of Canterbury has the gall to come out and say that Britain will need to make some accommodation with sharia law? It seems like this is already happening:
Women who have been taken overseas to be married against their will are now being rescued on an almost daily basis. The Government’s Forced Marriage Unit (FMU) handled approximately 400 cases last year – 167 of them leading to young Britons being helped back to the UK to escape unwanted partners overseas.
So where is the outraged voice of global feminism? Can you imagine the outcry if the headlines were “17,000 Blacks subject to Abuse Every Year by Whites”? And this is just Britain. What about France and Germany and Sweden and all the other countries with huge Muslim populations that they are afraid of offending?
Just as a heartbreaking example:
The human cost of honour crime was vividly captured in a haunting video message from murdered Banaz Mahmood, who revealed how her own father had tried to kill her after she abandoned her arranged marriage and fell in love with another man. In the grainy message she told how he plied her with brandy – the first time she had ever drunk alcohol – pulled the curtains and asked her to turn around.
The 19-year-old fled, but less than a month after making the grainy video on a mobile phone, Banaz was dead. Her naked body was found buried in a yard in Birmingham in 2006, more than 100 miles from her London home. She had been raped and tortured by men hired by her uncle to kill her. Mahmood’s father, uncle and one of her killers were sentenced to a total of 60 years in jail for the murder.
Just what kind of uncle hires thugs to rape, torture, and murder his niece?
