9. What's ONE capable word?

One word that can ably describe the mix of anger and remorse we feel regarding these women/girls???

I was laid up in a hospital (medical infirmary) in Vietnam in 1965. I had a leg infection they were treating. During my stay there, I was witness to many folks coming and going for treatment of all sorts of maladies. ONE stands out in my mind - a young Vietnamese gal who'd been assualted by about 20 Marines - American men reduced to mere animals. They'd gotten this girl drunk and then decided to have some fun with her. Someone finally intervened and took her to the infirmary, where she was treated. NO repercussions for her transgressors though! Despicable!
