SHOCKING: Occupy Baltimore has own court system set up for rape allegations

Posted by: ST on October 18, 2011 at 6:49 pm

I kid you not. Why? Because, in a nutshell, they don’t want police on Occupy grounds. Big Government’s Derek Hunter reports (via @snarkandboobs):

I was in downtown Baltimore Monday morning taking care of some business, so I thought I’d stroll a block over and check out the “Occupy Baltimore” crowd. Well, the word “crowd” might be an overstatement. There were about as many people as there would be homeless people on a normal day, only with tents and literature rather than Starbucks cups for holding spare change. And it’s the literature I found most interesting.

Among the literature I picked up off of their table was one titled “Security Statement.” What it said, and what it implied, was rather disturbing:

Here’s a revealing snippet:

[Security Statement] Though we do not encourage the involvement of the police in our community, the survivor has every right, and the support of Occupy Baltimore, to report the abuse to the appropriate law enforcement.

[Derek Hunter] So if someone were sexually assaulted, a horrible experience, they wouldn’t be discouraged to contact the police, the “occupy community” would rather handle it internally. That’s just perverse.

The “Reporting Procedure”:

[Security Statement] Any member of the Occupy Baltimore community who believes he/she/they have been a victim of, are aware of, or suspect a commission of sexual abuse, are encouraged to immediately report the incident to the Security Committee. T (sic)

The point person for dealing with these situations will be Koala! (sic) Largess, (443) 642-XXXX.

Survivors of Sexual Abuse will be given the support, resources, and assistance needed for their emotional and physical health.

Read the whole thing for his dissection of the “Security Statement.” Seriously. I’ve seen a lot of creepy, off the wall things going on in the “Occupy” movement, but this is by far the creepiest.

A rape was recently reported at Occupy Cleveland (hat tip: @diggrbii):

CLEVELAND – A Occupy Cleveland protestor camping out over the weekend told Cleveland police that she was raped.

The 19-year-old woman claimed that she was sexually assaulted by a stranger on Saturday.

The police report said the woman was asked by Occupy Cleveland personnel to share a tent with a man she did not know because of a shortage of tents.

“We do not tent people by direction. Everyone chooses who to tent with. We provide the tents donated by the community,” Occupy Cleveland organizer Erin McCardle said.

The victim is a student at Summit Academy in Parma, a school, the police report said, that is for children with attention deficit disorder, hyperactivity and autism.

She went to a teacher at the school and told the teacher about the attack. The teacher contacted police.

That’s the right way to file a report. Not go through some bogus Occupy “Security Committee.” Sheesh.

Oh, on a much, much lighter note, Hot Air’s Ed Morrissey has a must-read today on how Occupy Wall Street types have now all of a sudden become big fans of private property – thanks to getting ripped off like crazy on “camp” grounds. Right Sphere’s Diggrbiii adds to the hilarity of it all with a related post titled, “Hey, Man. I’m Fighting For The Oppressed. With My $5,500 Laptop.”

Cannot make it up, folks. Cannot. ;)

    It is all the typical “Now I’ve got mine but you can’t have yours” mentality for these overaged children. What the heck did they think was gonna happen when hundreds of people who believe theft by the state is ok get together? That everyone else was gonna respect someone else’ private property?

    Like I said, overaged children, except that a lot of children have a better grasp of reality than the majority of these buffoons.

    I am shocked that I heard not a single thing about the incident in Cleveland. What is wrong with these people?? I am happy that the young woman sought out help, but I am deeply saddened that she was raped. Is this the face of this movement? Miscreants and criminals? And the POTUS and mass media are with them? When will the young people…heck everyone…in this country wake up? We are headed down an extremely slippery slope here.

  3. Dana says:

    And just how could the fleabagger security committees actually handle a rape case internally? Do they have their own jails, in which a rapist can be incarcerated for years on end?

  4. Will says:

    I feel for the victim and glad the “proper” authorities was contacted, but it shows the world they live in, a world they are trying to turn ours into.

    I am curious though, lets say that these people knew or apprehended the perv would they administer their own justice and not contact the police? what would the sentence be a slap on the wrist, community service, since they have no jails and like typical lefties abhor incarceration of any level, prison time is obviously out of the question.

    Ah the liberal world, as jacked up as can be…

  5. John says:

    I think you are ignoring the signs of an actual revolution forming. A large, disaffected group; an actual mob has formed; shadow-government entities being formed. All this needs is a catalyst. Surely I am not the only one here to have read Mao Tse Tung’s “On Guerilla Warfare”? You can mock them all you want, but this is merely a symptom of the fact that injustice has become law, and promoting law and order strikes me as rather silly at this juncture.

    Now, Carlos, it could be that someone decided to “spread the wealth around”. If this person had a $5500 computer, she’s obviously in the richest 1% and should have to giveup her possessions to those who have less. Plus, if she has a laptop that expensive, she must have oppressed someone to get it, right?

  7. Carlos says:

    I’ll tell you flat out, GWR, these people are without a doubt the most oppressive around, they’re nothing less than their gangland puppetmasters in the WH (puppeted in turn by Soros and his filth) allow them to be, and considerably more than the skaggy morons they purport to be.

    Now that they’re pretending to be in the big time, they understand that theft (“redistribution” is the word they use, but theft is what it is) is the name of the game and anyone, even their supposed cohorts, are fair game for their thefts.

  8. Born Free says:

    I’ve always been curious as to why, in circumstances like this, when the number has already been made public, it’s redacted from the blog entry. Just askin’.

  9. Mary in LA says:

    I just found your blog again. So glad you’re still here!

  10. Tony Brown says:

    Do you have a copy of this security document? I would LOVE to see it, and so would the rest of the world.

  11. Jerry says:

    Everyone read the doc. It clearly states… “Violators of this policy will no longer be welcome in this community” So now we know what they plan to do if they actually found the rapist-tell him to leave. ( which I suspect he already has)–God help us!!
