This will just be a quick post to bring to your attention an incident that occurred at the infamous Rikers island penitentiary, where a female corrections officer was attacked and sexually assaulted by an inmate.
Inmates at Rikers Island saved a female corrections officer from being raped by another inmate in a locked Plexiglass-encased watch post at New York’s notorious main prison complex over the weekend.
The incident occurred around 8:15pm Saturday night after the attacker, 27-year-old Raleek Young, managed to lock himself in the bubble-like post with an unnamed female officer, where he began choking her while masturbating, the New York Daily News reported.
A group of inmates helped corrections officers tear away the Plexiglass to create a gap wide enough for one of the inmates to slip through and unlock the security door. The inmates then grabbed and restrained Young, who is currently serving a 10-year sentence for the rape of a 13-year-old in 2007.
Correction Department spokeswoman Eve Kessler told the Daily News the matter is currently being investigated.
The female corrections officer was treated in a hospital following the incident.
Considering my last post, in which men are instructed on how to take measures to avoid rape, I just found it deeply ironic that men will mobilize along with their own captors to help a woman tasked with their imprisonment but will not mobilize to demand that men who are raped or are at risk of being raped receive the protection they need.
I wonder how many of these men care about their fellow inmates who are being raped every day?
“Norman Seabrook, the president of the prison officers’ union the Correction Officers Benevolent Association, reportedly convinced officers to return to work, but called for accountability in the case. He also praised the inmates for stepping in.
“I appreciate [them] helping a sister officer, because that could have been their mother, wife, or sister,” he said.”
If you appeal to mens protector instinct they will do anything, they will kill themselves even to prove their manhood. Those of you reading this should never underestimate the ability for society to control you via this mechanism.
