Rape trauma lingers

HA. Sorry. Laughed when I read "making it look like the female suspect may have asked these police officers for sex." Because, yeah, that makes no sense. And I hope you don't think that I'm disagreeing with anything you say, because I feel exactly the same way. And also... The officer fleeing the island...Hmmmmm.  (Sep 27, 2012 | post #11)

Rape trauma lingers

Like I said before, I can understand both sides of the argument. It would be absolutely horrendous if this did take place, but then I guess you would then need to consider how many women cry "rape" every day? Especially if they are trying to displace any sort of blame/wrongdoing. I've actually been thinking about this thread ever since I first commented... and now I'm stuck. I'm not sure what took place. Unfortunately, I think this woman lost a smudge of credibility for HAVING that type of criminal offence in the first place. But does that make her story completely unbelievable? Absolutely not! These types of matters/accusation s of rape should never ever be taken lightly. No matter what. My curiosity has gotten me really thinking about this. I wish that I did know what happened. Oh well, I guess....  (Sep 25, 2012 | post #8)

I understand both of your stances on this situation. But, Mugabe, you seem to be generalizing the entire Jamaican population into several categories: "dirty, unlawful, sinful and perverse". I do, however, agree with you on a certain point you brought up; people need to understand THEIR own mistakes before judging others. I am almost insulted quite honestly. As a woman, reading your response, it seems as though you figure that since this woman tried to smuggle drugs into another country (which, by the way, I do NOT agree with at all... but that's beside the point)she is now a "drug smuggling body cavity stuffing prostitute"? Those are your words, not mine. That just seems like an awful generalization and judgement of women. I'm not saying this woman was right to attempt to smuggle drugs into another country-- not at all. That's a crime, in any country you visit. However, I must agree with Blacktigershark: She did indeed take the blame, she admitted to her wrongdoings-- and still asked the question, "But is that the punishment I deserved?" Maybe she did fabricate the story-maybe she didn't. I don't know, none of us do. But, when women are dehumanized in such a way, they speak out! The fact that she did express remorse for her previous actions (the drug smuggling) personally makes me lean toward the opinion that she is not fabricating this story, and she is not making it up.  (Sep 24, 2012 | post #3)
