Vice News: The rape and murder of a 16-year-old girl by two men in South Carolina sparked an internet frenzy last week.
Now, the rape and rape of a woman on her own home turf in Tennessee may be on your TV.
And that’s because it’s not just a simple case of an individual man raping a woman, but a phenomenon that involves dozens of people.
“It is a pattern of people who have nothing to do with each other but who have a mutual attraction, and who have mutual sexual pleasure, taking advantage of vulnerable women,” says Laura Ries, an assistant professor of media studies at University of Georgia and co-author of Rape in America.
Ries says the common denominator is that the victim is a woman who is often younger than her attackers, and is often the victim of sexual assault.
“These people will do whatever they can to make the victim feel unsafe,” she says.
“In my research I’ve seen that a lot of the relationships that are made are sexual in nature, and these people will get into the relationship and be very aggressive and aggressive, or very controlling, with the woman.
They will physically abuse her.”
Ries and others believe this phenomenon has become so prevalent, that the perpetrators can now get away with it.
In the past two weeks, two men have been arrested in connection with the murder of 19-yearold Jessica Valenti, who was attacked in her home on June 13.
Both have been charged with kidnapping and rape.
Both men are currently being held without bond.
Roes says that, even though police are investigating the Valenti murder, the internet has been inundated with photos of Valenti’s face, and of the men accused of killing her.
In some cases, the photos have been shared hundreds of times.
Rises to the Top of the Rap SceneOne of the most widely shared photos was taken in June, when a man in a white T-shirt attacked a woman in her living room in Tennessee.
The woman’s face was splattered with blood and her clothes were ripped and bloody.
Ries says it was the first time anyone had seen a photo of a man being brutally beaten.
“She was walking through the room and there was blood everywhere, so the question is, how did this happen?” she says of Valentina.
“How could this happen?
Because this is not normal behavior.
The behavior is not the behavior.”
Rys believes this type of behavior is common on the internet.
“When you share a photo, and a photo has been shared thousands of times, there’s no way to control how people will react to it,” she explains.
“If a woman is walking through your neighborhood, you don’t want her to be walking through this neighborhood alone.
You want her walking alone, you want her feeling safe.”
Ris also believes that many men are sexually aroused by the sexual imagery they see in the internet, and that these men are not alone.
“I have found that the people who are most sexually attracted to women online are the people that are in relationships, who have been married, who are parents, or who have kids, and so I believe there are other men who are sexually attracted too, and are able to find these images in the Internet,” she tells VICE News.
Rys says the images of men beating women online have a history in the U.S. and have been linked to other crimes.
“One of our most common statistics is that there is a statistically significant correlation between online stalking, sexual assault, and sexual violence,” she said.
In a series of Facebook posts, the Tennessee man who killed Valentina posted that he was the father of her child.
Valentina’s mother posted a video in which she described how her daughter was raped and sexually assaulted by the two men who were accused of her murder.
“They came to our house, we had no weapons, no nothing.
I told them that if they want to get my daughter, I can give them my phone number.
They didn’t have a gun, so they did what they had to do,” she can be heard saying in the video.”
So they took her car keys, they took the money, they didn’t give her nothing,” Valentina said.
“And they put her in the back of my car and drove away.
She was crying, she was screaming.”
In Tennessee, police say that there was no indication that the attack was connected to Valentina, but the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation is investigating.
In Tennessee, the death of Valentini sparked nationwide outrage, with calls for her murder to be investigated as a hate crime.
“We are in a war, and we are in war on women,” President Donald Trump said in a televised speech on June 18.
“These are not good people, and they should be ashamed of themselves.
They have to be punished.”
