This has been all over the news for the past few days and the more I find out about it, the more horrified I become.
An Ohio woman was raped this past week in her home town of Toledo, by local teenaged boy Anferney Fontenet. The boy has been taked into custody for questioning and has since admitted to raping the woman.
The woman claims that the teenager assailed her on the side of a busy road and raped her while drivers reportedly ignored the situation. After being questioned by police, various eyewitnesses claim that they did, in fact, see a sexual encounter taking place at the side of the road, but decided not to intervene because they were unsure whether or not the sex was consensual. It was also reported that another driver slowed down, leered and beeped.
Finally, after what was probably the ninety-fifth or ninety-sixth passerby, a motorist phoned in a complaint to the police station claiming that a woman had been raped at the side of the road. The woman, an Autistic woman with a bi-polar disorder who also uses a cane to walk due to balance issues, advised law enforcement officials that her attacker had been a high school-aged boy with a pair of scissors. The victim stated that the boy had threatened her with the scissors and ordered her to comply with the sex act or he’d stab her.
Fontenet, who was taken into custody this past week, is now being charged with both rape and robbery upon his own admittance.
What kind of society are we turning into that a rape can occur on any broad-daylight afternoon on a busy street and no one comes to the rescue? What kind of person drives by a forcible sex scene on the side of the road, shrugs and drives by because it could be something ‘okay’? Furthermore, what kind of teenaged boy accosts a disabled woman at 2:30 in the afternoon, threatens her with scissors and rapes her?
Who moved the rock?
