For those of you who are not familiar with why I basically turned a huge chunk of this blog over to the story of the Dunbar Village gange rape, let me refresh your memory of the horrific facts of the case. A 35 year old mother was brutally gang raped and sodomized for three hours by up to 10 African American teens. They capped off the barbarism by forcing her to perform oral sex on her own 12 year old son before they poured cleaning solution in the son's eyes and on the mother's skin, blinding the son and burning the mother. They would have set the two on fire, but the attackers could not find a lighter. THAT was the PG Version!
Now part of the reason, Dunbar Village looks more like something you would find in Darfur is because the poor Black folks living there were abandoned by the Mayor and City Commissioners of West Palm Beach, FL and the Housing Authority Director, Laurel Robinson is either A) Corrupt or B) incompetent. They have taken ZERO action on the conditions which precipitated this and other violent sexual assaults on Black women and girls in that part of West Palm Beach. Today, YOU can view their incompetence in all of its glory by watching a joint meeting between the West Palm Beach City Commissioners and the West Palm Beach Housing Authority.
Make sure you read Symphony's report from the most recent meeting between the bureaucrats in West Palm Beach, Florida. They are still inept. Our national leaders are still indifferent to one of the most heinous attacks on a Black mother and child in our lifetimes. CALL THEM ON THEIR CRAP!
