I apologise for double-posting. It won’t happen again, but i have to say this.
There was this girl. She came out and said her ex boyfriend had abused her both psychologically and physically. At first they wouldn’t let her testify. She walked into the police station (this was all recorded from her phone) and asked to report her ex. The policemen would be okay with it until they heart who the ex was. It was the son of an important politician. Upon hearing that, they would flat out refuse to ler her talk and kick her out saying she’d better not make a big deal out of it or that they couldn’t help her.
Then, some police officer left our country and, only when he was counties away, he made her case public. There was concrete proof-from threatening text messages to the pictures taken of her body marked with cigarette burns and large hematomas all over her body. Even the doctor who had examined her said the violence was almost inhuman.
Yet our legal system didn’t see it necessary to arrest her ex, demanding he was still innocent since the court hadn’t taken his case yet. It took rioting from the people on the streets for them to arrest the ex.
A few days later and guess what! The woman came out saying she had been lying, that he hadn’t abused her and that she simply “fell” and would accidentally burn herself with cigarettes because she “was too clumsy” and that “the doctor was wrong and exaggerating”. It was obvious she had been threatened into silence. How can i be so sure? Someone blew her house up. TNT in the middle of the fucking day. Luckily, no one was harmed as they were all out to work, but the message was clear. Talk and you’re dead.
Now, this. I find this terrifying. Because it happened right where i life, less than a month ago. Because money and power can buy you human lives wether we like it or not.
Hello there! I’m from Europe! Nice to meet you!
