8 female Marines claim gang rape and sex assault at D.C. barracks
"Any society, any nation, is judged on the basis of how it treats its weakest members -- the last, the least, the littlest."
~Cardinal Roger Mahony
By any measure, the signs of decay in Western society are all around - based on how it treats its own, particularly the very weakest members, who are increasingly being humiliated, degraded and abused! And when there is little sympathy from those in the camp of either: 'they deserve it for disobeying' or 'I'm glad it wasn't me but I'll never find myself in that situation', we have the unmistakable signs of a society in the final stages of decay - one that sticks its head under the 'sand' until its certain demise! Whether we are talking about institutionalized abuse by people in positions of authority, towards the young or the old, the imprisoned or its female members (especially from male abusers) we then have in place all the ingredients of a recipe for State tyranny - well before widespread brutality takes hold!
The past decade or so has seen a dramatic increase in the instances of abuse against society's weak! Of even greater concern has been the deafening silence from the majority, which continues to largely turn a blind eye perhaps nervously hoping that by not complaining they will escape similar treatment. Rape of women in the military and in prison is now so commonplace, that it is considered part of the 'job description' - even as we all become used to being groped by State agents at transportation hubs!
Respect for human dignity as well as the sanctity of our personage has now reached an all-time low! What we accept as 'okay' treatment for society's weakest today will certainly be our reality tomorrow. When we fail to sound the alarm about such abuse, expect none to be sounded when our time comes!
Waking People Up And Getting Them To Realize That The American Dream Is Quickly Becoming The American NightmareWhen I was growing up, police in America generally treated women with gentleness and respect. It was generally understood that women were not to be thrown around or mistreated by police unless they were being openly violent. But in most areas of the United States those days are long gone. Sadly, many police officers seem to make it a point to be especially mean and degrading to women. All over the country women are being openly abused and humiliated by police. In America today, women are being yanked around by their hair by police, women are being pepper sprayed directly in the face by police, and women are being brutally strip-searched in front of leering male police officers. This is not how a civilized nation should be treating women and there is no excuse for treating women like dogs. The incidents that you are about to read about are absolutely shocking. They reveal just how far America has fallen. If police will treat non-violent women like dogs, then what will they do when the time comes to arrest you? That is something to think about.What police are doing to peaceful female protesters in some areas of the country is absolutely horrific. A recent article by Steve Watson described the degrading things that were done to one group of women when they were arrested in Maryland....Attorneys with the anti-abortion groups the Alliance Defense Fund (ADF), the Thomas More Society of Chicago, and the American Catholic Lawyers Association revealed that after their arrest, the protesters, including women and young girls, one as young as 14, were put into leg shackles and strip searched twice, while being denied the right to make phone calls, and make contact with lawyers. The protesters were kept in jail overnight.
Reports indicate that the first strip search took place in the police station parking lot in full view of male officers. The second strip search was conducted at the Harford County Detention Center.You can view a few minutes of video from when the women were originally arrested right here.How would you feel if your mother, your wife or your daughter was being treated like this?How would you respond if you learned that your female family members were strip-searched in front of leering male police officers?There is no excuse for treating women like this.In other parts of the country, police are getting very violent with peaceful female protesters.For example, you can see videos about female protesters being pepper sprayed in the face here and here.Is there any excuse for spraying pepper spray directly into the face of a woman that is being completely non-violent?Police officers like that give all police a bad name.Perhaps even more disturbing are the police officers that have been yanking women around by their hair.In the video posted below, police brutally drag UCB English Professor Celeste Langan to the ground by her hair. She was not being violent at all and she actually offered her wrists to the police and verbally told them that they could arrest her. But instead of doing that, the police yanked her by the hair and threw her to the ground. Subsequently, the police did the same thing to two other peaceful female protesters....Read More & See Video:
