[TRIGGER WARNING: RAPE OF A MINOR, CHILD SEXUAL ABUSE, POLICE BRUTALITY, SUICIDE]
Police brutality isn't only for the U.S.
Seriously, huge trigger warnings here, just, ugh. But I want to say up front at least it was found that the police violated the boy's rights.
Teenager Trey Sims forced to masturbate in front of armed police had his rights violated
The entire story is horrific, like, oh my god. All this because a 17-year-old was sexting with his 15-year-old girlfriend. I mean, I would be concerned even with a small age gap like that at that age due to the rapid development of the brain in one's teen years, but that does not warrant that kind of awful treatment.
The other good news is that the officer responsible killed himself. The victim is still alive and suing the fuck out of the police department. But the fact that this was allowed to happen is absolutely disgusting and unacceptable. The victim might be scarred for life. That would scar just about anyone for life. Fuck. The. Police.
