The case of the rape of an eighteen year-old young woman by five young men in Brooklyn is very troubling. There are a lot of unanswered questions and many things that does not appear clear in this case. There is a need to investigate the relationship between this young woman and her father to determine if she might need help and counseling. There have been instances where an adult and a parent might be drawn sexually to one another after a long separation. I am not saying this is the case in this instance but it is worth investigating.

The five individuals accused of the rape of this young woman need to understand something, a person who is intoxicated does not have the mental capacity to give consent to sex. Even if they saw her having sex with her father that was no excuse for them to have any form of sexual contact with her. By their admission what transpired was rape and they should be dealt with accordingly. Because a woman is drunk that does not give a man the right to take advantage of her. These young men cannot be allowed to walk away from this incident believing that what they did was okay.

Feel free to give me your thoughts on this incident…

  1. There are so many unexpected twists and turns in this case but whatever the scenario, I agree that the youths involved compounded the situation (whether she was being manipulated or molested by her father will be for the courts to decide) by jumping on the bandwagon and raping her. It appears she is the victim many times over. I hope she will get counselling, on-going support and assistance.
