My thoughts on the Roast Busters
In case you have been living under a rock in the middle of nowhere with no access to any form of technology or media at all, Roast Busters is a group of young men (and I use the term men very very loosely) who claim to have filmed themselves having underage sex with very drunk young woman, then publicly naming and shaming them on Facebook.
I wonder why the police did not act on the young 13 year old that went to them with her parents to lay a complaint of rape 2 years ago. It is all very well to say they will now 'relook' at it now - but it seems a little too late, and I wonder if the media attention this issue has, is now the catalyst.
I am a Mum. I wonder what I would do if something this disgusting and despicable happened to my girl. I don't want my daughter or any other parents daughter to ever have to experience this loss of innocence and disgusting violation. As far as I am concerned, these boys knew full well the girls were drunk, underage and they took advantage. I despise their behaviour, and I am ashamed that there are young 'men' in our country like them. They make a mockery of all the hard working, fabulous kiwi men in our country. They do not deserve the label 'men'.
Finally, I wonder if the young woman who were named and shamed are ok. I worry for them, both now and in the future. My heart aches for the hurt, humiliation and loss they have suffered.
And so, the 'Despicable, Disgusting Dregs of Humanity Award' goes to the all those 'young men' who are involved with Roast Busters. Watch out for Karma boys, she has one heck of a kick.
