From The West: “Rape squad for Rotto schoolie week”
Specialist sex assault detectives will be based at Rottnest Island during schoolies’ festivities after attacks on young women there in recent years.
Police Commissioner Karl O’Callaghan warned teenage girls to stay together during leavers’ week to avoid being targeted by sexual predators.
Two officers from the sex assault squad would be stationed at Rottnest next week and others would be on call to deal with alleged rapes or serious sexual attacks in leaver hotspots including Dunsborough, Mandurah and Jurien Bay, he said.
“Female leavers should never go off with someone they do not really know,” Mr O’Callaghan said.
“They should also avoid drinking so much alcohol that they cannot make safe decisions. […]
[Youth Affairs Council WA chief executive Lisa Laschon] echoed warnings that schoolies’ festivities could be dangerous for teenagers, particularly girls, if they drank too much or took risks they normally would not. […]
Ms Laschon urged revellers to look after their friends and not accept drinks from strangers because they could be spiked.”
Same shit, different rape squad.
No-one’s warning blokes to watch out for each other and prevent each other from raping. No-one’s telling blokes to watch their booze lest their judgement be impaired and they rape someone. No-one’s telling blokes not to go off with girls so that they can avoid the temptation to rape them.
Blokes are raping girls, and it’s girls who are being charged with the responsibility to prevent it.
