Rape is Rape

An email from Shelby Knox is circulating (read below). Please take a couple minutes to sign the petition asking the FBI to change the archaic and limited defintion of rape. If you have already signed, please share with others. This is our chance to help make positive change. You can be the one!  Learn more about the petition here.

Back in July, more than 130,000 Change.org members signed a petition asking the FBI to change their outdated definition of rape.
Big news! The New York Times is reporting that: “Greg Scarbro, the F.B.I.’s unit chief for the Uniformed Crime Report, said that the agency agreed that the definition should be revised and that an F.B.I. subcommittee would take up the issue at a meeting on Oct. 18.” 

But no final decision has been made, so we need to keep up the pressure before Tuesday’s meeting and make sure the FBI knows that the whole country is watching. Click here to share the campaign on Facebook.

– Shelby

P.S. More big news: Thanks to a successful campaign by Change.org members in NYC, the Brooklyn police force (who had been trying to protect the community from a serial rapist by telling woman that short skirts would give “easy access” and showing graphic images without warning) will now undergo thorough training on how to deal with rape cases.

    @ The age of 19 i was raped by Neil Horne from H1 Capital, he paid me R 4,000 not to tell the police.
    I am still suffering with this traumatic experience and do not know what to do, is there anyone out there that can assist me, to bring this person to book. He evades my calls whenever i call
    him, and i want to give his monies back because i want to see him in jail.
    He is employed @ H1 Capital on the foreshore. After all this he became an atheist and told me that he was sorry.

    I have never been in a stable relationship ever since.
    Can someone please confront him?
