RAPE VICTIM GETS CALLED IN AFTER BV POST

To get Chief Rodriguez to care about rape he had to be humiliated on he BV.  In response to my previous post, the BPD called the alleged rape victim in for a formal investigation.  They offered her the form for making a claim with the state to pay for her counseling.  Wasn't that nice since we had already completed the form and sent it in.

Chief Rodriguez actually believes he can amend for his sins by calling out the fireman after the house burns to the ground.

 Every day woman suffer in silence over being raped because they fear a system of indifference.  Chief Rodriguez is the face of indifference.  If he were fired it would send a clear message to everyone in the department and the new chief, rape is not something to be dismissed.

Everyday women suffer in silence over being raped because they fear the second victimization which comes from  the system of indifference.  This woman suffered silently for months to only be dismissed by the BPD department once she finally had the courage to go in and speak with someone.

She is all too aware the BV's post is what got a detective assigned to her case.  Like I said because evidence is gone and she cannot ID the three men who attacked her the criminals will never be prosecuted.  But when she first went in they should have done what they did after the BV post - interview her for intelligence information which can be used to protect other woman.

There is yet a third victimization of the woman.  Many suffer the horror of going through an abortion.  A needless abortion caused by the indifference of our system.  If we could just bring woman to the point of trusting the system they could seek immediate medical attention to stop the pregnancy process even before conception.  But because of indifference by people like Chief Rodriguez they fear seeking help.  They become pregnant and are then faced with the impossible decision of abortion.  They are given the choice of knowing their baby is the product of violence or that they terminated an innocent life.

The Brownsville City Commission in the name of all rape victims needs to send a clear message to Chief Rodriguez - rape matters - you're fired.  But they will not and my discussion will end here.

Where is Dr. Rose Gowen in speaking out for women?  Nowhere - oh yes she has plenty to say about eating hot dogs - but the rape crisis - dead silence - the HIV Hep C crisis - dead silence.  Hopefully during the next election cycle as a politician we can make sure she is dead silent for good and never holds public office again.  A real doctor - a compassionate doctor would care about these issues - but not good old Rosie  she cares about stopping the consumption of hot dogs at sporting events, while women continue to suffer in silence, and HIV and Hep C spread all over Brownsville..

Women will continue to suffer in silence because even our elected politicians remain indifferent to the endless victimization of rape victims.   It only goes to prove the election of female politicians changes nothing when it comes to the endless victimization of rape victims byt he indifferent system which oversees these victims.

You are right Bobby, we are fed up with bike trails and Gowen telling us what to and not to eat, she should pay attention to the serious issues, not the group hug mentality that this commission seems to have.

You're right. You are right and so is Anon at 8:51. This woman had better not be the next mayor.

A very good article, I am glad that you were able to help the woman. Just finished Montoya's post about a double standard on people with DUIs. Would not he be more creditable by showing mugshots or videos of his multiple DUIs. Big differences in how bloggers impact our community.

You do not understand the system - when Ben Neece runs to help him it is okay - but it is a moral sin if you are disliked by him if someone does the same for someone else

Of courxe I understand the system. Maybe I did not do a good job at pointing out the irony of Montoya's effort to write something creditable; he undoubtably is an expert in the skirting the justice system.

No you were spot on - I just failed at sarcasm - maybe I should stop trying

But you were spot on.

The American Dictionary of Slang considers those words interchangeably. For example, "You sarcastic smart ass" would be a redundant statement. But really, who cares? You should write,,,,and I should read for substance. This what I usually get from the Voice, although sometimes I am of the opinion that you missed the mark. I read other blogs to laugh, plus I really don"t have much else to do being retired and happy.
