I was afraid of this.
Occupy Cleveland protestor told police she was raped in tent
A Occupy Cleveland protestor camping out over the weekend told Cleveland police that she was raped.
The 19-year-old woman claimed that she was sexually assaulted by a stranger on Saturday.
The police report said the woman was asked by Occupy Cleveland personnel to share a tent with a man she did not know because of a shortage of tents.
“We do not tent people by direction. Everyone chooses who to tent with. We provide the tents donated by the community,” Occupy Cleveland organizer Erin McCardle said.
The victim is a student at Summit Academy in Parma, a school, the police report said, that is for children with attention deficit disorder, hyperactivity and autism.
She went to a teacher at the school and told the teacher about the attack. The teacher contacted police.
“These are very serious accusations. We are cooperating with the Cleveland Police Department to find out what occurred,” McCardle said.
The permit for Occupy Cleveland to camp out in Public Square expires on Saturday.
No leaders. No cops. Free food. Lots of young and naive idealists. Human predators.
Doesn’t anyone remember how the Summer of Love ended?
I’ll ask again: Why is overnight camping so essential to OWS?
I bet there was never a rape at a Tea Party
