*Trigger Warning: Sexual assault*
What fresh hell is this? A court marshall in the Clark County courts (aka Las Vegas) is seen violating a woman’s civil rights after she accuses him of an improper body search and sexual assault. The judge presiding over the court TURNS HER BACK and plays with the victim’s two year-old child rather than address any of it. Meanwhile, the cop threatens to arrest the victim if she does not recant. She does not and is arrested in front of her daughter for refusing to back down from the truth! Unbelievable!
Folks: This is rape culture! A system of oppression that condones sexual violence — even turns a back on victims — because rape is inevitable for women and girls.
Here’s the Channel 8 report and footage. I repeat: trigger warning.
