"Go ahead and call the cops- they can’t unrape you”
The Roast Busters are a group of Auckland men, aged 16 to 18, who allegedly get under-age girls intoxicated and then have sex/rape them and subsequently brag and shame them on Facebook.
Police say there is nothing they can do as no victim has made a complaint to them about the Roastbusters. Even though they had 1 formal complaint over 2 years ago and 3 informal complaints since then.
Here is the link to an interview with the victim who lay the formal complaint. She was only 13 when they raped her and when she told police about it, they didn’t believe her and even made her ‘act’ out the traumatising situation with dummies.
Sign the petition to let John Key, the New Zealand prime minister, that these crimes are unacceptable and these boys are rapists that should be sent to prison.
I am personally so shocked that things like this happen within my own city so I encourage everyone to like/share the facebook page against them and join the protests in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch. It’s something you can do to stop rape culture and victim blaming.

If this doesn’t make you angry, I don’t know what will.
