I have to thank Beau of the Fifth Column for bringing this to our attention. I had to pull up the article he linked to after that and it’s dismaying. We know there are likely far more young girls who will go through (or are currently going through) this situation, but this is truly terrible.
The article from The Columbus Dispatch briefly mentions the girl as an example (certainly due to age and privacy laws and all), but it’s definitely a problem with a scope that’s just going to widen in the next few days, weeks, months…
This is atrocious all around. Apparently, women are going to Indiana from as far as Texas. My state! A big honkin’ spot on the map that’s got no services? I hope there are some pockets somewhere, but being in the bible belt and with the governors we’ve had… yeah.
I feel Beau’s anger in this one. And I’ve watched it 3 or 4 times now. There’s so many more stories on the horizon, you just know it. I’m gonna go do some angry stress cleaning now.
Also, dunno why it’s showing up with the black & white Youtube and 3 dots logo, but the video does work when you click it. I made sure of it.
