Shut up. Be quiet. Keep your mouth closed.
How would you feel if you were raped, violated, assaulted and ravished, and the people you love the most, the people who are supposed to protect you, told you to hush up about it?
I do not believe that the girl who was raped on a Chalan Kanoa beach last May was lying when she said she was raped; I think she is lying now. I think her father is forcing her to lie to protect a rapist and the rapist is undoubtably a relative, probably an uncle or a cousin. I suspect the father values the freedom of a rapist more than the sacred innocence of his daughter.
On June 3, days after the rape occured, the Saipan Tribune reported that, "the girl was brought to the Commonwealth Health Center where it was confirmed that she had been raped."
Were the doctors wrong? Did the doctors confuse the bruising and semen as something else?
