What would you do if this poor girl was your daughter? What would you do if your son was involved?
This is just such a heart breaking story to read but it contains an important message. Why won’t our beautiful children learn that alcohol in excess never ends in anything good?
Here’s the story so far …
A teenager, who was allegedly gang raped while intoxicated, cried and asked for her mother to be called after being found in a dishevelled state in a room with four boys, a Sydney court has heard.
The girl’s former friend told the trial on Tuesday that a group of boys in the doorway of the room laughed when she asked: ‘Where is (the 15-year-old)?’, reports Daily Mail.
She said there were two boys still in the room when she entered and her friend’s tights and underwear were ‘dishevelled’.
The boys were aged 17, 18 and 16 at the time.
‘I need to go home, I need to go home, someone ring my mum,’ the then 15 year old victim said, according to the witness in her evidence at the Downing Centre District Court.
The attacked occurred at a party in the Blue Mountains in 2012.
The friend giving evidence on Tuesday, who was 16 and drunk at the time of the alleged attack, admitted her memory of the night was ‘patchy’ and that she talked to two other former friends about the night’s events before testifying.
Crown prosecutor Belinda Baker has previously said the jury would hear the victim was told ‘shut up, you love it slut’ during the alleged assault.
Another witness said four youths were in the room as he stood in the doorway for a few minutes.
The case continues.
We recently shared a story from a mum who was horrified to find her son collapsed in the front garden after drinking with mates at school.
She urged parents to educate their teenagers about peer pressure and urged them to show the photos of her son Chase to reveal the effects of alcohol poisoning. (see the story here)
She begs parents, “We need to educate our teens that it is okay not to fit in, be different & have our own identities. We don’t need to impress anyone, be yourself and you will find the right friends, not the most popular ones. You do not need to be in the popular group at school to be successful once you are no longer in school.”
Recent research has shown that 75% of 12-17 year olds admit to having tried alcohol.
We can’t imagine how this girl and her family have carried on. So scary and could happen so easily. Please Mums, talk to your teens over and over and over. They are precious and need to know that things like this happen.
Teach them that they must TRUST the people they are with so they know they won’t just run off and leave them if something were to happen. Don’t go silly just because everyone else is and most importantly RING mum or dad if you need. No matter what the time is or what the situation may be. How bad can the punishment be? We would prefer you alive!
