Arrests at Reading Festival

Posted by - 11:54 AM on 08/22/14
The Guardian is reporting that a 14 year old boy and a 31 year old man have been arrested on suspicion of raping a 19 year old at the Reading Festival.
Ch Insp Dave Parker said: "There is currently a scene watch in place and I would like to reassure those attending the festival that crime levels remain low and crimes of this nature are very rare. "Officers are patrolling the site to support on-site security and if anyone has any concerns, please feel free to approach our officers to discuss these." Police said there have been 21 crimes at the festival site since Wednesday, including five alleged drugs offences and 13 suspected thefts.

There was a similar story on the news here about a man using a younger kid, around the same age of the kid in this story to help him find victims.. Honestly this reminds me of some Law & Order SVU storyline but seriously? what kind of sick person could put BOTH of those kids through that? I always see the comments everywhere but I'm starting to agree.. "this world has gone mad".

Jeeeesus Christ. How horrible. What kind of monster would even let a 14-year-old get involved in that? How do we even respond to this level of depravity?

Super messed up.
14 year olds know better, he (assuming it's a male) is just as guilty as the adult.

Persecution awaits.

We are saints made of plaster, our laughter is canned;
We are demons that hide in the mirror.
But the blood on our hands paints a picture exceedingly clear.

We are brimming with cumbersome, murderous greed,
And malevolence deep and profound.
We do unspeakable deeds, does our wickedness know any bounds?

Something's gone terribly wrong with everyone;
All the world is mad.
Darkness brings terrible things; the sun is gone -
What vanity! our sad, wretched fires.

We can't medicate man to perfection again;
We can't legislate peace in our hearts.
We can't educate sin from our souls, it's been there from the start.

But the blind lead the blind into bottomless pits,
Still we smile and deny that we're cursed.
But of all our iniquities ignorance may be the worst.

Something's gone terribly wrong with everyone;
All the world is mad.
Darkness brings terrible things; the sun is gone -
What vanity! our sad, wretched fires.

Oh, what little light we have!
It only serves to show
The snares and seeds of wrath
We have already sewn on every path

These words ring very true.
