Wait until you hear the ‘justification’ for committing an act that has them all being charged as adults.
It’s the stuff of a parent’s nightmares — the football team your kid plays on becoming a weapon turned against him. Bad enough there have always been some sketchy coaches ‘out there’ trolling for victims, but to have a kid suffer at the hands of his own teammates?
It gets worse. They claim to be just one link in a long line of people doing this sort of thing to their teammates. A ‘tradition’ stretching back ‘for generations’.
In a Maryland High School, four fifteen-year-old boys will be tried as adults for sexually assaulting four teammates with a broom.
The Damascus High School athletes, whom NBC News is not identifying, were each charged with one count of first-degree rape, three counts of attempted rape and one count of conspiracy to commit rape, Montgomery County State’s Attorney John McCarthy said.
Each of the students was released Tuesday on $20,000 bond, according to court records. They are not allowed on the premises of Damascus High School, and they are not allowed to contact one another, McCarthy said.
A fifth teammate is accused of participating in at least one of the attacks and being charged as a juvenile but is also identified as one of four victims, charging documents show.
As you can read in the description, there is nothing about this attack that involved willing submission.
One of the alleged victims told police that the suspects held him down, pulled his pants down and poked his buttocks with a broomstick before “the broomstick was inserted into his anus a few inches,” prosecutors said.
Two of the victims said they were violently attacked, but were able to fight off the assailants before they “got the broom,” prosecutors said.
Another victim said a broomstick, which he described as a wooden handle with a “cut on the tip of it” said he was “stabbed” on the buttocks with the broomstick. When that victim tried to fight the attack, the suspects told him it was “tradition,” he told police.
When interviewed by investigators, one of the suspects said the broom “started from generations ago,” according to prosecutors, who said freshmen were the ones targeted.
If it is indeed a ‘tradition’ it would be interesting to see an investigation into who else needs to be similarly charged, to the extent that any Statute of Limitations may allow.
With stories like this out there, it sure is nice to have a law-and-order emphasis in our government again.
