ShakespearesSister: Rape in a Small Town

shakespearessister: Meet Florence Holway
Florence Holway. Fifteen years ago, at age 75, she was brutally raped by 25-year-old John LaForest, who entered her home, raped her vaginally and anally, hog-tied her with a telephone wire, choked her, and smashed her teeth. During the attack, he said to her, “Isn’t this nice? Isn’t this great? I ought to come over every week.”

This case shows that even victims of stranger rapes aren't always treated respectfully by those who are given the job of pursuing justice.
