Open Season on Women

TRIGGER WARNING: THIS VIDEO CONTAINS AN ACT OF SEXUAL VIOLENCE

A young woman is walking to work at about 6 AM when a man appearing to be on a cell phone waits for her to pass him and then  grabs her and carries her behind a van.  They disappear from view and he later emerges fixing his clothing and she emerges a few minutes later in a state of confusion adjusting her clothes. This is caught on the surveillance camera of a convenience store that was not yet open.

When my brother brought this video to my attention I was not prepared for what I saw.  Even though I read about this, and hear about this, and haven’t been that far away from this myself, I just wasn’t ready.  When I saw this video my heart stopped beating and hasn’t beat the same since.  I’m still struggling to comprehend the world we live in that can produce such sickness and evil, but I still don’t have the words to speak.  I wanted this blog post to say something deep, but I’m feeling to much to think.  A moment of silence is necessary…

  1. Not sure, based on what’s been said so far if i can handle watching the video. Can you provide a written description with a trigger warning?

    Thanks Chanel!

  2. Moya. Thank you for saying that words.

    I take my visual violence diet serious.

    God Bless this young woman and the millions of others who have been violated as well.

  3. I don’t even know why I watched that vid. I am so emotional right now. It so scary to think women have to always think about their safety and that a person can commit such a serious crime and walk away like nothing ever happened. Women deserve safety!

  4. I wish I hadn’t watched the video. I feel physically sick with anger. My heart goes out to that poor violated girl. Beyond that I just don’t have words for this.
