Kuwaiti Nabbed For Raping Many ‘Home Alone’ Women
KUWAIT CITY, June 24
Police have arrested a Kuwaiti criminal for sneaking into the homes of women and raping them after ensuring there was no male in the house, reports Al-Rai daily. The arrest came after several Kuwaitis filed complaints with the Salwa Police Station accusing the man of sneaking into their homes and raping their wives. The victims are believed to be three Kuwaitis, a Syrian and a Briton. They identified the suspect from pictures shown by police. After the man was taken into custody police records showed he was wanted by law in connection with drugs cases.
Anywhere else in the world, they would be stressing the severity of the crime and that it was committed by a SERIAL RAPIST (that means, in a series of similar crimes). They write the article as matter-of-factly as it was about someone breaking into homes and stealing satellite dishes. WTF!
If someone were committing similar violent crimes in the same neighborhood, why wouldn't the police publicize it to warn others? (Well okay... it took them months of child rapes before they publicized the Hawalli Monster cases...) FIVE women were raped IN THEIR HOMES in SALWA. Why does this country continue to take major violent crimes against women as if they are something inconsequential and minor?
And this is very poorly written. Who cares if there were no males in the house? The women could have been single or elderly or whatever. They were home invasions and rapes. Did it matter to the story that "several Kuwaitis filed complaints"? Wow. "Complaints". It makes it sound as if there is a noise disturbance. Who cares what nationality of people filed the cases? Does it make a difference that they were Kuwaiti? What if they had been any other nationality?
