...fucking hell.

Black Amazon has a link to an incredibly disturbing story, with of course her own commentary. Summary, from the linked article:

A woman was sexually abused, beaten and humiliated while being held captive in a home for at least a week, sheriff's officials said Monday after making six arrests.

Those arrested, including a mother and son and a mother and daughter, are white. The victim, a Charleston woman who was being treated at a hospital Monday, is black. The FBI plans to investigate it as a possible hate crime.

"The things that were done to this woman are just indescribable," Logan County sheriff's Sgt. Sonya Porter said.


It then goes on to describe some of the things. Yep. It's...bad. As for how "shocking" it is...read BA's commentary.

And from there, this post, as noted at HRTFP.

I'm not stunned. Not in the least.

It is, “par for the course”. The tale of Jena reminded me of an incident that took place in my family some 14 years ago. It was a simple family reunion...in a small southern town...

How much you wanna bet that's a family that goes on about family values? Hate is a very important one.

Gotta take BA's point too about the women.
