Autistic Woman Raped By Teen In Broad Daylight No One Helps
http://www.dreamindemon.com/2010/01/22/autistic-woman-r...

TOLEDO, Ohio People frequently claim that we are losing our humanity, and generally I would disagree, but stories like this one make me throw up my hands in defeat. An unnamed 26 year old woman was walking down the street in broad daylight when she was attacked by 15 year old Anferney Fontenet. Anferney pulled a pair of scissors on the woman and threatened to cut her if she screamed- then proceeded to rape her in public. Cars (Cars reviews) drove by, beeping their horns, and apparently a few motorists called 911 but not a single driver nor citizen walking on that street even stopped as the woman was sexually assaulted. Anferney stole the womans cell phone as he fled the scene of the crime. Police have said that perhaps people didnt realize they were witnessing a rape, that perhaps they thought it was consensual- but perhaps at least ONE person could have stopped to make sure! Im ticked off because people were doing nothing. Just driving by. What kind of humans are we becoming?, the victim said to a local newspaper.

What kind of humans indeed- as the victim dragged herself from the ground, she even asked a passing pedestrian to use his cell phone to call for help, who kept on walking. To top this horrific story off, the victim is a resident of an Ohio group home, as she is diagnosed with bipolar disorder and Aspergers syndrome. The police were able to catch Anferney at his house, were he confessed to and was arrested for rape and robbery. Anferney may be the perpetrator of this crime, but every single person who drove or walked by and did nothing as a woman was raped right in front of them is guilty as well!


There are no words... :cry: What the fuck is wrong with people? :grr:

1. It is inexcusable, Odin!
I get involved when I see anyone( including all living creatures) being threatened in
any capacity( hasn't involved any weapons,yet) and I will gladly endure any ridicule for being a
"butinsky" to do so.

:(
