Donnerstag ist auch irgendwie ein Mittwoch
Ein Bericht über einen Massenvergewaltiger:
Reynhard Sinaga was found guilty of 159 counts of sexual offenses against 48 different men, and must serve 30 years before he is considered for release. Police said the true number of his victims is likely to have been higher, having found evidence linking him to assaults on as many as 190 different people.Details of his campaign of assault were suppressed while trials were ongoing, but can now be published.Sinaga, 36, approached men in the early hours of the morning outside nightclubs in Manchester, striking up a conversation and offering them somewhere to sleep or promising them more alcohol.Once he had brought them to his flat he would lace their drink with a drug — most likely GHB, police said — then film himself raping them while they slept. His comatose victims were unaware they had been assaulted.Sinaga’s attacks only came to light in 2017, after an 18-year-old victim woke up at 6 a.m. while being assaulted. The victim managed to fight him off, and crucially was able to grab Sinaga’s white iPhone before leaving the apartment.He went to police, who discovered 3.29 terabytes of graphic material on Sinaga’s phone — the equivalent to 250 DVDs. In some cases the assaults lasted hours, with one particular attack taking place for eight hours.Sinaga’s victims, who were usually heterosexual and were often students, were seen snoring and in some cases vomiting while Sinaga raped them, Britain’s Crown Prosecution Service said. When a groggy victim was starting to wake, Sinaga would push them back to the floor to continue his assault, or snatch away his phone to avoid suspicion.
Irgendwie finde ich es erstaunlich, dass man jetzt bei der Verurteilung, das erste mal von dem Fall hört. Hätte er 48 Frauen vergewaltigt, dann wäre der Prozess sicherlich weitaus bekannter geworden. Es hätte massenhaft Aufklärungskampagnen gegen Rape Drugs und die damit verbundene allgegenwärtige Gefahr gegeben und auch noch Vorhaltungen gegen das Patriarchat, dass nur in einer solchen Rape Culture wie bei uns im Westen ein Mann so lange damit durchkommen kann. Gut, dafür hätte er vielleicht auch noch weiß sein müssen.
Dennoch ganz erstaunlich, dass er seine Taten so lange praktizieren konnte.
