Worst Crime Yet ...
... And the Palm Beach Post censored it from their news stories, which surprises me.
The AP's Brian Skoloff reports today on a gang rape in West Palm Beach in which a gang of teenagers, some of them in middle school, raped a woman and forced her 12-year-old son to join before pouring cleaning solution in his eyes. Here's Skoloff's words:
According to authorities, the men raped, sodomized and beat the woman, then forced her son to participate in the assault at gunpoint, making him have sex with his mother in front of them.
The boy was then beaten and had numerous household cleaning liquids poured into his eyes, according to the police report.
That's horrible. The Post had reported some on the crime, but didn't include the most awful part, i.e. the forced incest, listing it in today's story as "other acts that horrified veteran investigators."
I'm surprised in the Post on this one. C'mon. Tell it, don't quell it.
