Today, while I got up early for two activism meetings (early to me being ten a.m.), took a nap with my boyfriend, had dinner with friends, and then attended the Indiana Black Pride Town Hall Meeting more than one woman was raped or beaten. This topic got touched upon at the Town Hall Meeting tonight when discussing the ways that America discriminates.
As I scrolled through my bloglines account to catch up on the current events of the day, I noticed this story about a police sargeant who had been indicted for raping 4 seperate women. It is good news that he is being stopped from continuing this attack on women.
I am left wondering about the hundreds of assaults, beatings, and rapes that happened today and why they aren't in the news. Perhaps, I am painting with too broad a paint brush, but if found guilty I hope they lock him away for life.
