important rape trial next week

I know the town doesn't want to talk about it, nor do the newspapers, but a rape was committed in Homer, with hospital evidence and witnesses...and not only were the perpetrators not arrested for over one month, they have been out working and still not held accountable after all this time.

The trial is this week....

The brothers’ next court date is scheduled for Nov. 22 with a trial scheduled to begin Dec. 16 in Homer.

We need to decide what kind of town we are going to be, what kind of example we are setting for our youth:

"The Denver Post ran a lengthy report on a disturbing incident in Norwood, Colo.: a 13-year-old boy on the high school wrestling team was bound with duct tape and sodomized with a pencil in a brutal hazing ritual. When the boy and his father—the school principal—reported the assault, much of the town turned against them and backed the attackers (two of whom were the wrestling coach’s sons). The boy was mercilessly bullied, and there was a clamor for the principal’s dismissal. Eventually, the perpetrators pleaded guilty to minor charges and were sentenced to probation, community service, and modest fines; the boy’s family, like the Colemans, left town.

"Another story of a vicious sexual assault on a male teen—in Homer, Alaska—has been ignored except in the local media. In September 2012, a boy who passed out at a party after drinking heavily was subjected to increasingly abusive “pranks” and finally violated with a beer bottle while dozens of boys and girls watched. The victim ended up at the hospital requiring medical attention; Homer High School football player Joseph Resetarits and his older brother Anthony, captured on camera committing the assault, were arrested. A year later the case languishes in pretrial, with bail restrictions on the defendants relaxed to facilitate their employment"

As we discuss suicide and sexual assault in our town, it would be wise to remember that many suicides are caused by the depression and shame caused by sexual abuse, and a lack of justice to protect victims from future abuse makes the situation much worse.
