There was a similar issue when my beloved and departed non-biological sister Kelly attended the wedding of her cousin. Two of the servers working for the catering company drugged everyone there by adding rohypnol ─ the rape drug ─ to the drinks at the wedding. Kelly herself was not raped, but neither she nor her (now ex-)husband remember getting home, and when they woke up the next day, they found themselves naked in bed together, even though closer inspection revealed that they had not had sex ─ they were already in preparation for a legal separation and then later divorce. Kelly herself had only had one beer, and her ex-husband had only been drinking sodas because he was the designated driver that day.
When Kelly told me how she couldn't remember anything and woke up in bed with her then soon-to-be ex-husband, I immediately suspected foul play, so I told her to get her blood tested ASAP. She did, and the test revealed traces of rohypnol. Her ex-husband was also tested, and his blood showed the same thing. Then Kelly started asking around among the other attendees, and they all got their blood tested as well, with positive results. The cousin herself who got married turned out to have been raped, at her own wedding. They then all went to the police and an investigation was opened, which then led to the two servers at the party. The bastards had recorded everything on their smartphones.
This of course leads us onto another topic, which is ─ as I've already said many times before ─ that rape and other sexual crimes are the worst of all, because a murder victim's worries are over, but a rape victim has to live with that violation for the rest of their life. But whether we're talking of murder or rape, the for myself shockingly incomprehensible fact is that human beings are actually capable of such vile acts, and if you look at the real numbers ─ because many of these rape cases are not even getting reported due to the victim feeling ashamed of themselves, and/or being afraid of the perpetrators ─ then the phenomenon is genuinely growing to alarming proportions. And it's not always the stereotypical dirty old man either. Most of these perpetrators are fairly young people ─ especially when there are rape drugs involved.
Similarly, there is now also an alarming number of reports of incidents during student baptisms ─ a fraternity ritual at the start of each academic year. Some of the things that the sophomores are putting the freshmen/freshwomen through simply range from disgustingly grotesque and humiliating to criminal, often involving the fully nude simulation/re-enactment of pornographic scenes. Other such rituals revolve around different forms of cruelty, and one fraternity is currently on trial for having directly caused the death of an Indian student.
They say that children are the future. Well, I suppose that's a truism. But if those youngsters are our future, then things are looking even more bleak than they were under the reign of the depraved old generation with its pockets full of other people's money. And come to think of it, they too have once been students, and they too may themselves have engaged in very similar cruelty back in their time. But back in those days there were no social media, and there was a stigma on speaking up about the harassment, humiliation and violation. It is only in recent times that such atrocities have begun rising into the public awareness.
Humans are a disgusting species. Perhaps it would only be best if we do end up destroying ourselves.
= DEATH BEFORE DISHONOR =
