I came across this article on CNN when looking for news about something else. It basically reports on a 16 year old girl that recorded a video pooring her heart about a tragic event in her life.
When most people use services on like YouTube, Vimeo, or Viddler to show the world happy moments or silly ones. This 16 year old sits in front of her camera to share how she was raped and no one is listening.
CNN reports ?Orange County authorities charged the 23-year-old man Crystal accused of assaulting her with lewd or lascivious battery. According to court documents, Crystal and the man both said they had an ongoing sexual relationship.?
In Florida where this took place the age of consent is 16. When this happen the girl was a month away from her 16th birthday so they decided not to pursue any other charges.
As terrible as this is I starting to wonder if the internet desensitize us?
How many of would have seen the video and just assume it was another viral video?
I know I would have thought that and wonder when the second video would come out. I know it sounds really bad but I am just being honest.
