As I mentioned with the Nataliee Holloway post, America is not immune from slavery. This is something that shouldn’t surprise us as we go more and more toward the days of Noah:
PHOENIX – A couple held a runaway teen captive in a hollow bed frame for weeks and forced her to have sex for money with people they found on the Internet, police said.
The 15-year-old girl managed to call family members for help while 18-year-old Matthew Gray and 19-year-old Janelle Butler were sleeping Monday night, authorities said. The two were arrested Tuesday.
The girl ran away from her El Mirage home in September and met the couple through a friend about three hours after she disappeared, police Sgt. Andy Hill said. They took her to a park, bound her and had her gang raped for hours, police said.
Fortunately, she was able to escape– and the the couple face some serious charges:
Gray was booked on hundreds of counts, including sexual assault, kidnapping and child prostitution. Butler was booked on kidnapping, child prostitution and other charges. Both were being held without bond.
How could an 18 and 19 year old do this to someone not that much younger? How could you be so inhumane? And yet, what do we make people out to be today– objects that can be used and disposed (think abortion and euthanasia).
