How Does Your Community Handle Rape?

Hai.

I've been lurking on here. Who knew majoring and double minoring at a university would be so hard?

Anyways, I'd like to ask around on here if you guys know how rape is handled in some of your guys' communities. Are you in a small town? Urban area? A college campus like moi?

A little personal story.
I unfortunately fell victim to this a while back. While it did not happen on campus, after going to counselors and clinics, I was cleaned up, shared some info, and the guy was actually caught. Due to discretion, I can't say what happened afterwards but all is well. I speak at schools around the area and have made a bunch of connections. This got me thinking though, my university is rather small. The resources were amazing nonetheless. A friend of mine said that at her school, they would have not even believed the case without proof. And that even then, come programs would have to read a case and approve the action of helping out the victim. I brought this up in my health science class and it was a resource most students didn't even know about. So I ask you now, not for any stories or if you know anyone close that was raped or abused, but how do resources around your community compare to mine? Does a group advocate awareness? Lemme know!

This fu**king world. I'm telling ya. *Shakes head in disgust*. You have my deepest sympathies for suffering through something like that. To share something so personal with the entire world is not only courageous, it is essential. Being a male I can't relate to the nature of your pain. I can only pray it never happens to you again.

The city I live in isn't a huge one like New York or Boston. It's in Saint John, N.B. Canada. When a crime of the magnitude of rape occurs, we hear about it in the paper and on the local evening news pretty damn fast. This nature of crime gets around town fast because of our size and fairly low crime rate. Rape is a much bigger deal here than it would be in one of the above mentioned cities due to their population towering over ours.

The police now have this person's appearance and his offense burned into their brains. Some will say that they are police and their integrity keeps them from hassling this guy for no good reason even after he serves his time. Don't kid yourself. I'm not saying that all police are like that. Some however, do decide to drag this person into an alley, beat the snot out of him and then plant drugs on him. They then proceed to arrest him for possession as a form of justice in their minds. Especially if they have girls for children and think about how they would feel if their child was raped. Their anger and lust for some "Payback" overwhelms their integrity. Rape is a very serious crime and we take it seriously. My city has a limited but effective system for dealing with rapists and rape victims. If the prick who raped you is in jail, I'm certain the fellas are treating him like a lady and giving him the proper respect it deserves. Cops stick together like glue. Very loyal to each other. Very loyal. I can promise you that the police's integrity was trumped by their vengeance on this one. The video below is a stark example of what I mean. DO NOT watch this video if you are easily disturbed.

I've witnessed cops hit kids younger than me like 12, 13 for no good reason but them talking back to the officers.

Anyways on topic Rape is a very very serious problem in most cities and especially in mine of Tampa Fl. While I don't know the exact ways it is handled I know that they take it very seriously and act very quickly when they hear of a report.

Jeez, I'm so sorry to hear that...

Don't think there's many places in North America that tolerate this. Anywhere I've been, not even other prisoners tolerate it. Do something like this, and get caught for it, welp, other prisoners won't respect it, and they'll beat or sometimes kill whoever did. Know this from someone I knew that had been in jail witnessing (and hearing stories of) this happening to these people. As for how the outside of jail community handles it. Similar to life sentences I believe.

Would be nice if it just didn't happen at all, but some people just... ugh

Castration should be the punishment for rape, no question about it.

I'd also like to point out that (in the UK at least) women can't be charged with rape.

Castration is what is deserving of individuals that commit rape. Now for that video, well, he shot a cop in the face, he is lucky they didn't kill him.

Maybe they felt that killing him was the easy way out. They no doubt inflicted much pain on him. To them, making him suffer was more gratifying I guess. With him alive, they can at a later date, work him over again. I know that sounds harsh. It's not my nature. But then again, I'm not a cop nor do I know the poor officer as a friend and co-worker like them.

Quite badly. Only men are seen as "rapists", like Konata said, women can't be charged with it which imo just makes it even harder for men/boys who have been raped by women to come forward about it.
Rape isn't taken seriously enough here in any case. Many rapists get away with it even when people press charges against them.

My city isn't enormous or anything and I honestly don't know the statistics for rape here. Joggers are extremely susceptible in the downtown area here. There are also a few serial rapists that still haven't been caught.

With children and minors, it's handled seriously IF there's enough proof. As someone who has experienced sex abuse by someone older than me in school, the system does fail at times. It failed me. People here generally have the consensus that rape is a disgusting and horribly violent act. Those convicted of rape and charged are normally estranged from society here lol. However, the police require A LOT of proof if the allegation is made and not all cops believe you at once.

My city is relatively safe save from the downtown area at night.
