In the aftermath of the Obama gun town hall meeting and the interchange he had with the rape victim, this story is very appropriate. And horrific.
Authorities say an 18-year-old woman was accosted just after 9 p.m. last Thursday as she and her father walked inside Osborn Playground in Brooklyn.
Police say there were five men, and one pointed a gun at the father and told him to leave.
Authorities say each man raped the woman. The father returned with two police officers, but the attackers fled.
Here is surveillance video from a convenience store showing the suspects. And sadly, it appears these suspects were all black. What is happening in our community with these young black men? This cannot be blamed on police, and will we hear from Black Lives Matter? ALL lives matter, and as a dad of two daughters, I must say the cherished womanhood of all WOMEN matters.
So far, four of the five rapists have been caught. The Star Tribune reports, “Police said Sunday two teenagers surrendered and two were apprehended. Charges were pending against a 14-year-old, 17-year-old and two 15-year-olds. A fifth suspect is still being sought.”
But why did this ever have to happen? Why does this girl need to live with this trauma, and her father forever knowing he was helpless to protect her?New York City is yet another restrictive gun law zone. We cannot carry a police officer on our hip, so what does a law-abiding American do? Be a victim or be a victor?
If the father was permitted to carry a firearm, could he have defended his daughter? Maybe, maybe not. He may have died trying, but at least he would have had a fighting chance to protect her. Now he must live with the aftermath.
This is the real war on women, perpetrated by liberals and their progressive policies.
And I bet these guys didn’t get a background check.
