Outrageous: Alleged sexual assaults, rapes at #OWS being kept “internal” / cc: #OccupyCLT
The New York Post reports (hat tip: @VelvetHammer):
Wall Street protesters in Zuccotti Park battened down the hatches yesterday as the early October snow turned their tents into igloos, but the close quarters also made easy pickings for one predator.
A sex fiend barged into a woman’s tent and sexually assaulted her at around 6 a.m., said protesters, who chased him from the park.
“Pervert! Pervert! Get the f–k out!” said vigilante Occupiers, who never bothered to call the cops.
“They were shining flashlights in his face and yelling at him to leave,” said a woman who called herself Leslie, but refused to give her real name.
She said that weeks earlier another woman was raped.
“We don’t tell anyone,” she said. “We handle it internally. I said too much already.”
I don’t have to tell you how troubling this is, not to mention disgusting – especially the fact that there is an apparent “no snitch” policy (sometimes written, sometimes unwritten) at the bigger city “Occupy” movements – including right here in Charlotte. This is dangerous, especially for women seeing as their are more and more reports leaking out about alleged sexual assaults and rapes at Occupy camps across America.
To the ladies at Occupy communes: If you are a witness to a sexual assault, have been told of one, or you are sexually assaulted yourself, and you do not report either what you saw/heard or went through, you have just spat and bludgeoned on on over a hundred years worth of hard work by TRUE women’s rights activists and their battles to empower women to speak up and report to the authorities instances of physical abuse, sexual assaults, and rapes so the perps can ultimately be punished, as they should be. Do the right thing and report these crimes TO THE POLICE!
These places are becoming havens for violence (not to mention filth). And yet the “occupiers” wonder why the hell even Democrat mayors want them to stop camping on city property??
