Victim of the Dunbar Village gang rape. Describing her neighbors' response immediately following the attack. (SOURCE)
I explained in Friday's post why I didn't post about Dunbar Village, how do you articulate the horror in words? Quite frankly it depressed the hell out of me. In another post about some foolishness in Georgia, we started addressing the gang rape in Dunbar Village of a woman by 10 African American teens who in addition to repeatedly raping the woman ( FOR OVER THREE HOURS) while beating her 12 year old son made them lie naked in the bath tub together and forced the woman to perform oral sex on her own child before burning her skin and blinding her son by pouring cleaning solution on their skin and eyes.
Oh yeah, and they took cell phone pictures of their deeds and were so brazen that one of these monsters left his condom behind. Surely indicating that they thought they would get away with it. Oh yeah, and the neighbors that didn't see or hear anything and are currently not talking to police.... Well not a single living thing in this "community " of folks even bothered to offer a glass of water when this was over. This woman and her blinded son had to trudge to the hospital in the dark on their own.
Why Raze this place to the ground?
"So a lady was raped. Big deal," resident Paticiea Matlock said. "There's too much other crime happening here." ( Source)
Or maybe it should be razed to the ground for this reason alone:
Neighbors did not respond to her screams, and no one called the police. The victims ended up walking a mile to the nearest hospital afterward. (Source)
For three hours, the two say, the 35-year-old Haitian immigrant was raped and sodomized by up to 10 masked teenagers as her 12-year-old son was beaten in another room. (Source)
Or raze it to the ground because of this lovely fact about another crime by the residents of another complex less than a mile away from Dunbar Village:
A 14-year-old Mangonia Park boy has been charged with raping and robbing a 42-year-old woman only a few steps from her apartment while his friends waited and watched, some shouting "Hurry up" and "Me next." ( Source)
Or how about this tidbit:
Two of the three teenagers arrested in the Dunbar Village gang rape are related to imprisoned members of ( a gang I refuse to promote on this blog)...People in the neighborhood kind of look up to the (gang I refuse to promote)," he said. "As we lock them up, some young kids started calling themselves (name you can read for yourself in the link)...On MySpace - a social networking Web site - friends profess allegiance to the three Dunbar teenagers arrested in the rape and express hope that they will be freed.

What the HELL is going on in these housing projects in Florida and you can best be darn tooting sure that this foolishness is going to spread. All the gated communities in the world can't keep psychopaths like this out. It does not matter if you or your children are not engaged in crime and foolishness, this still can affect you. The victim kept her son on the straight and narrow, which was probably one of the reasons why she was targeted:
Dunbar Village was the only place the 35-year-old Haitian immigrant could afford on what money she got by selling Avon products or delivering phone books. Each day, she would shower, cook for her son, braid hair for her friends, and hope for relief from her chronic backaches. She was a university student in Haiti who came here and worked in a nursing home until she fell and hurt her back. She did not socialize with neighbors or buy the sin some of them sold. On Sundays, she made sure her son's slacks were pressed, his tie knotted handsomely. She wore a bright smile and her best dress and drove two miles to the services in French and Creole at St. Ann Catholic Church. (SOURCE)

Watch. This editorial explains why we can expect more of the same in a neighborhood near you.
WE CAN'T LET THIS PLACE EXIST. PERIOD!
This country simply cannot let a place like this exist. We can't let a community that will ignore what surely were cries and screams emanating from that apartment with paper-thin walls . We can't let a community that had to have at least one person seen a bleeding, beaten, blinded mother and son trudging out of their apartment, but didn't lift a finger to offer a ride to the hospital or call a cab or maybe if 911 was too much of a stretch, they could have called 411. Even now, when only 3 of the 10 are in custody, that "community" from reports isn't doing much to assist law enforcement with apprehending the remaining assailants.
Raze it to the ground, relocate the folks, disperse the foolishness. Just because they are poor doesn't mean we should tolerate them living in HELL on EARTH.
The single mothers and children who fill most of the apartments at Dunbar Village — a housing project on the poor, black, north side of this city — are used to nightly gunfire. They are used to theft, assault, murder and the indifference of federal and local authorities. (SOURCE)Relocate them. Raze the place to the ground and let it serve as a monument that the great social experiment of packing a bunch of poor folks on top of each other and then abandoning them is a FAILURE. The public policy folks got this one WRONG. Start over, but don't let these people continue to live like this. If they don't have the initiative or wherewithal to claw themselves out out of hell, then the nation must give them a push, but we can't sit back and accept these conditions in America or anywhere else on the planet for that matter. Some of the current residents understand that Hell on Earth is no HOME at all.
[Female resident] is one of few Dunbar Village residents speaking openly about the attacks. Others agreed to be interviewed but would not give their names, fearing consequences. The police said many had shrunk away from their questions, a longstanding problem in the neighborhood. (Source)
Outside another unit, Calvin Jones, 71, said he would leave with his 13-year-old granddaughter this weekend. They came to Dunbar Village from Gulfport, Miss., after Hurricane Katrina, Mr. Jones said, and now they were going back — though with no home.
“If you knew that happened,” he asked, “would you stay here?” (SOURCE)
Where is Jesse Jackson with an offer of a college scholarship? This woman was a university student too!
Folks I feel a " Sharpton-Jackson-NAACP-Black Elite Establishment- Watch" coming on. I can feel it in my bones. I am telling you the Universe is sending signals again. Alll of them need to be clowned until they issue a press release indicating that they have made a very sizable donation to the fund listed below. E-mail me if you think you or your blog are interested. whataboutourdaughters at gmail.
They are saying that you can go to ANY Wachovia bank no matter where you live. Don't just be mad. Help another human being out. Our civic and social organizations are too busy helping out a multimillionaire professional football player who engaged in foolishness.
P.S. Why isn't this getting the Natalie Hollaway, Lacie Peterson, Chandra Levy, Elizabeth Smart, Jon Benet Ramesy, 24-hour news cycle attention until they capture each and every suspect?
