Don't Be A Silent Witness

Could I please talk to you about this?

"A number of people witnessed the start of the incident but mistakenly thought the boy and girl were just a young couple arguing.

The court heard the girl ran away from Tappin, but he pursued and caught her, forcing her to the ground. She was shouting at him to get off her but witnesses still did not realise they were witnessing an attack rather than a domestic row.

Mr Gioserano said Tappin marched the girl away with his arm around her shoulder. He took her to a secluded area, tore her top and raped her at least twice."


Do me a favour please? Next time you see a woman being brutally attacked in the street would you mind calling the police quickly? And remembering that even if it turns out to be "just" (snark) a "domestic" it's still sort of bad to beat your girlfriend/wife to a bloody pulp too, not to mention raping her? Kthanxbai.


  1. I don't know why I'm surprised by this kind of thing anymore, but it's utterly disgusting. Even if it was 'just a domestic', I wouldn't think twice about calling the police if I saw a woman (or indeed a man) being attacked in the street. Argh.

  2. I should have known better than to start reading the comments:

    "So he gets datined indefinetely while murderers and violent crime goes unchecked."

    Yes, how dare they prioritise petty non-violent infractions like this...
