Megan Williams was raped and tortured in Big Creek, West Virginia by six assailants. Another case in West Palm Beach, Florida, a mother was raped and tortured by ten teenagers, along with her son. Both crimes were as horrendous as can be imagined.
What do these two cases have in common? Both women were black. Where do these cases differ? The perpetrators of the first crime were white, wherein the victimizers in the second were black.
There is only one psychological profile that fits both cases. The perpetrators are clearly psychologically deranged.
What would cause six white assailants to rape Megan and sodomize her with a stick, force her to eat dog and rat feces, drink water from a toilet, stab and beat her repeatedly, while continually berating her with racial slurs? That’s sick.
What would cause ten black youth to rape a mother, beat her 12-year old son, force her to perform oral sex on her child, and douse them with cleaning fluid? That’s perverse.
What makes people act like this?
There is only one answer. They are evil. Anytime human beings can treat another human being like this, they have no feelings or empathy with humanity.
Someone suggested that the perpetrators of these crimes were not human in the same sense that we are human. But then someone else declared that monsters are not born. They are created.
I believe the culture in which a person lives contributes to the molding of their psyche, and there is something in the minds of psychos that targets black women as their prey. Whether this is caused by the depreciating and devaluing the black woman’s humanity in our culture, it is one question of speculation. But the primary concern is how we mass produce these monsters and how do we stop them for growing up around us formulating these types of hideous crimes.
STOP THE BLEEDING – PROTECT THE WOUND
I believe that we should do everything within our power to stop predators- whether women rapists and torturers or child molesters. There is only so much we can do in trying to make the victim whole again. The scars, no doubt, will never disappear. But we will continue to breed psychopaths if we do not address the root of the problem.
We can stop the bleeding and protect the wound at the same time. We can assist the healing process of these two abused women. But we must also call upon local leaders to change the culture of youthful gang members and prosecute race-bait torture cases as hate crimes. And, the punishment of both offenders should suit the nature of the crime and age of the assailants. After all, it is the responsibility of our leaders to “put evil away from amongst us”.

There is some controversy around the November 3 March for Megan, which is not unusual when national black leaders are involved. But Deidra at Black and Missing but not Forgotten, a blogsite dedicated to all the missing black women in America, reports that Megan and her mother will be participating in the march... enough said.
