It's way too often these days that a piece of news comes out that proves the existence and damage of rape culture.
"Gangs draw up lists of girls to rape as proxy attacks on rivals"
That's the headline. The subheader?
"Gangs assault rivals' sisters and girlfriends as a 'low risk' method of asserting dominance."
Low risk. Low risk. Low risk method. Low.
Do you understand what is happening here? Gangs are attacking one another, not by murdering or even assaulting one another. Because that carries the risk of arrest and punishment. Instead, they take the LOW RISK route and just rape rival gang members' girlfriends and family members.
I guess the gangs picked up on the fact that only 3% of all rapists see any jail time at all. That IS low risk!
Hubberstey said gang members were taking advantage of low conviction rates for rape, viewing sexual violence as a less-risky means to inflict pain on rivals or spread fear than carrying a weapon. "Criminals are clever, they know if they are caught carrying weapons they face a lengthy sentence; it's risky carrying a gun. The use of sexual violence is the same sort of thing as having a dangerous dog; it creates fear, it's non-traceable, and they are also taking advantage of low rape conviction rates even when there are witnesses," she said.
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA OKAY BYE.
