Here's what happens when the people are denied the ability to defend themselves - they become ruled by thugs like this.

Belfast rapist phoned victim's mother to gloat
06/08/2005 - 15:08:21

A gloating rapist called his teenage victim’s mother on a stolen mobile phone to tell her about the depraved attack, police revealed today.

Armed with a screwdriver, he subjected the 15-year-old girl to two sickening sex assaults in west Belfast.

A second thug used a metal bar to batter three boys she was with and stop them rescuing her.

The girl, who is from the north of England but was holidaying in Belfast, has been left severely traumatised by the double rape early today.

Police chiefs shocked by the brutality of the attack have launched a hunt for the men, both in their late teens.

Chief Superintendent Ken Henning said: “This was horrendous and disgraceful. It has caused untold distress to the victims and their families.”

The girl and her friends were confronted by the pair as they walked along Blacks Road just before 3am.

Cash and mobile phones were stolen before the girl was dragged into a BP petrol station forecourt and raped.

The boys, two 15-year-olds and one aged 14, were ordered to strip to the waist and beaten repeatedly.

“These three men were literally held hostage while this went on,” Mr Henning said. “They were helpless to go to her aid as they were being threatened and struck by a metal bar.”

The terrified youngsters were then taken up a driveway at the nearby Colin Valley Golf Centre where the girl was raped again.

“The individuals who carried out the attack took her mobile phone, rang her mother and told her what they had done,” Mr Henning added.

Detectives have urged the rapist and his accomplice, both thought to be in their late teens, to give themselves up.

Their families were also challenged to bring them to a police station if they suspected their involvement.

Detectives have been told the man with the iron bar claimed to be called Terry from the Divis area of west Belfast.

The rapist is believed to be 5ft 8-9ins tall, with a cut under his left eye and chipped and decaying teeth.

His partner’s left ear was pierced and he wore at least one sovereign-type ring.

SDLP member Patricia Lewsley was outraged at the level of cruelty involved.

“It is hard to imagine the kind of ordeal that this young girl endured,” she said. “It was cruel in its planning and evil in its execution. It is clear that this attack was not spontaneous.

“It is clear that these sick criminals will strike again. That is why, for the safety of everyone in the area, I am appealing for anyone who may have any information on this evil crime to contact the local police as soon as possible.”

Michael Ferguson, a Sinn Féin Assembly member for West Belfast said: “This is the second sexual attack in the general area in a week. I would urge local women not to travel home alone and for God's sake to be vigilant.”

Ahhhhhhh, socialist utopia where armed self-defense is a higher crime than raping a minor.

while it is sick and wrong, I'm somehow doubt out law abiding 15 year olds over here are walking around with guns to protect themselves.

"We're police officers! We're not trained to handle this kind of violence! "

What about bystanders? And why shouldn't a 15 yo be taught how to use edged weapons?

What bystanders? I didn't read anything about bystanders? Don't you think any adult would've approached the two elder teens and stopped it? Where are you getting this information from?

As for edged weapons, they have knives there. Like I said, this can happen anywhere including here. This is nothing but a sad sorry event that happened, gun laws or not it wouldn't have changed a thing.

Very sad what happened.

But why are 14/15 year olds out walking the streets at 3:00a.m.?

WTF all he had was a metal pipe to hold 3 people at bay.

When I was 15 I carried a knife and often a .22 or shotgun. I assume these aren't country folk like myself, but a knife certainly shouldn't be out of the question for healthy young men anywhere.
