A sheriff is defending the teenager, community members say it’s sad that the boy was tortured by bullies, the article calls it “sex” with the child, and the report barely mentions the fact that the seven year-old girl is the one who was tortured!
Torture is having your little legs spread open and a penis forced inside you until you bleed. You cry and scream for it to stop but no one helps you, and the perpetrator ignores your suffering. You are so scared because you have no idea what is happening, and you think you are going to die. That is torture, not being called names, or pushed around on a school yard.
“The Rio Arriba County Sheriff’s Department said a 13-year-old boy from the Espanola area is facing charges for inappropriately touching and having sex with a 7-year-old girl in his family.”
Having sex with???? Uh, you mean RAPE?
“Officials said the teenager admitted he raped the girl because of peer pressure at school. The teenager is in a detention center, facing a serious crime, but police are jumping to his defense, saying he’s a victim, too.”
He is a victim of his own anger and ego. To put the rapist on the same level as the victim, is outrageous!
“This case is all about bullying, and because of the bullying, now we have two victims,” Sheriff Thomas Rodella said.”
This case is not about bullying. There is one victim and one teenage rapist.
“The sheriff said the boy admitted to his actions, and then explained to police he did it because other kids at school were brutally teasing and tormenting him for being a virgin.”
This kid already had a propensity for violence.
“People in this community, especially parents, said they’re stunned by how powerful bullying can be.”
Well gee, they ought to be more stunned at how powerful rape can be –how seriously it can damage a child. They ought to be stunned at how this teenager was driven with violence, self-motivation, and rage, to RAPE a little girl because he couldn’t psychologically deal with bullies.
These people make it sound like the bullies are the ones who raped the child.
“It’s just sad that a 13-year-old would be tortured that much that they would turn and do something like that to their own family member,” resident Kathryn Martinez said.”
Do “something like that???” Uh, you mean RAPE? What’s sad Ms. Martinez, is that you and those in your community, and apparently police officers, can stand there and call the teenage boy’s problems torture, but IGNORE the fact that the little girl is the one who was tortured. You are ignoring that a RAPE even occurred. Ms. Martinez, you can’t even SAY the word! You and everyone else in your community, who have this mentality, contribute to the RAPE of children. You think that’s a harsh statement? Well welcome to the victim’s world. Because, to the little girl, when adults and authority figures sympathize with the child rapist and call him a victim, she feels as if she is worthless and that rape is justified if the perpetrator couldn’t handle his emotions.
“A judge has until Tuesday to have a hearing and decide whether or not he should stay there or return home.”
The kid raped a family member, does she live in the home? Is he going to be returned to the same home as his victim??? It’s certainly not unheard of.
Why, why, why is this kid being allowed to go home after raping a small child?
“The act of inflicting excruciating pain, as punishment or revenge, as a means of getting a confession or information, or for sheer cruelty“
This kid took his revenge out on a seven year-old girl. If he had raped one of the bullies, I would have had some sympathy for him.
