This story is one that just makes me sick and really makes me ask what is wrong with our kids today? When I was young, which wasn’t THAT long ago. The worst things we did was smoke and drink and fight and do stupid things like that but never anything close to what kids are capable of today.
It is to the point that you can’t even trust strange teenagers anymore than you can some adult men. You see what I mean by the end of this story and this story is not intended for younger readers even though it is based off of news reports this story is horrific.
A 35 year old Haitian Immigrant and her 12 year old son live in Dunbar Village in West Palm Beach Florida. They have lived there since they immigrated to the US with no money as this is low income projects type housing.
On July 7th, a teenager lured the woman outside out her door and then all 10 teenagers pushed their way in. For 3 HOURS they terrorized this poor woman and her son at gunpoint. They all repeatedly gang raped and sodomized this woman while in the other room her son was beaten.
The woman told reporters some off the boys had raped her two and some three times each. As said earlier this went on for 3 hours. To end the woman told reporters they forced her to perform oral sex on her son.
Then they doused the two with household cleaners and left the premises. Not one of her neighbors came to their aid nor did anyone call the cops. This was a loud and extremely violent and lengthy attack so how her neighbors could ignore this is beyond me.
The poor woman had to stumble her way to a hospital a mile away because she had already had her car stolen in a previous incident. In this day and age how can this happen in any community at all?
How can people stay silent and allow thugs to terrorize them and their neighbors? The time is come for good people to say enough is enough and take back our streets. We out number them and if we band together we can win but I am a dreamer.
So far through DNA and fingerprints they have arrested 2 teenagers so far, one 14 and the other 16. The other 8 are being sought but are also young as well. Sick little world.
Some things you can do to protect yourself if you live in a bad area:
Never open your doors and be lured outside – if they say there is something you need to see just say thank you and will we have my husband/boyfriend take a look at it in a few minutes or something but never open the door or go outside, even if it is a kid (see above story).
Get yourself a security door brace, they are inexpensive and can really help you to be safer. They sell for 15 and 19 dollars and are worth the small investment. Some of the door braces also work on sliding glass doors and should be used to help secure these types of doors as well.
Getting some type of defensive weapon such as pepper sprays or stun guns. You should have something to help give you a fighting chance.
We have inexpensive alarm systems that are great for apartments, they are easy to use and portable so you don’t have to ask for permission to use them. It also allows you to easily take them with you if you move.
Stay safe out there!
