    Default Man! This is disgusting. Senators vote to defend gang rape

    I'll let you read this for yourself:

    http://www.alternet.org/blogs/health...end_gang_rape/

    Just another reason I don't vote for ANY of these politicians.

    Yikes!
    I thought this was going to be a joke or something when I read the thread title but, sadly, no.

    Halliburton is one of those scary, behind-the-scenes companies that are used to having things their own way. If they say that covering up a gang rape of one of their employees by several of their other employees is necessary for the national security, well, I'm afraid a lot of people in D.C. will go along with it.
    Why? Dunno. Maybe Halliburton is giving them money, or Halliburton knows secrets.

    My state, Indiana, has had many boneheaded Congresspeople in the past (Dan Burton), but I'm glad to say that both of our Senators--Dick Lugar (R) and Evan Bayh (D)-- are intelligent, capable men. It's no surprise that they're not on this list of 30.







    Don't read this.

    I voted for one of those senators, and I'm going to email his office to ask why he voted against this. I'll post the response I receive.

    I'd be interested to hear that. Can't understand how this is justified at all, but I don't understand politics, I guess.

    ...but as I await Sen. Jim Inhofe's response, I want to add a few thoughts:
    1. I would never, ever seek employment with a corporation that would make me sign a contract that said stipulated arbitration and mediation for sexual-related offenses. I support Ms. Jones and I hope she gets justice soon, but she never should have signed that contract and taken a job with Halliburton simply because of that stipulation. Sorry, but she just shouldn't have done that.
    2. With that being said, we need to make it ILLEGAL for any business to make alternative dispute resolution the ONLY acceptable method for resolving issues like this. What Ms. Jones' co-workers did is illegal and criminal, and Halliburton should throw these guys to the wolves and the strong arm of the law. I know I would. This brings me to...
    3. Halliburton. I loathe Halliburton. I am a USAF Enlisted Contracting Officer and have deployed several times to Oman, Iraq, Qatar, and Kyrgyzstan. With the exception of Oman, KBR and Halliburton have had a large presence at my bases every time. They have made my life easier every time - they usually run the food service, which is one of the biggest pain-in-the-ass contracts ever - but I have always found many despicable things about them and how they operate. The typical contracting officer at the tactical and operational level (me) doesn't usually interface with these big base support contractors, but I always have to at one point or another; it's just my luck, as my last deployed boss said. Cheneyburton are a big, big fish and I - the warfighter - get treated like shit because I'm just another combatant. They operate in the slowest possible manner because once the war is over, they're all out of jobs.

    And the thing is, I'm sure there's going to be more to the story than what was in that article. Nothing is simple in this modern world or in life.

    I get it, but I am pretty sure this wasnt pointed out to her when she was first employed and face it, the kid was 19!!! A baby in the workplace. Her attackers, the doctor who saw her and "lost" part of the rape kit, those who imprisoned her and the company need some serious arse kicking here.

    Reading up, I see she was a Houston girl, pretty and oh my god, so so brave. These bastards should pay out so much in compensation that she should never have to work a day again in her life if she so chose. To stick a girl in a storage container after such a brutal attack is barbaric and horrifying. an examination by Army doctors showed she had been raped "both vaginally and anally," but that the rape kit disappeared after it was handed over to KBR security officers.

    If I were her mother I'd want several heads on several platters!

    I watched Franken question the KBR/Halliburton reps on CSpan and I was impressed.....a few times the simplest questions such as "how much of an award should arbitration give a rape victim? Is $50 bucks enough?" should have elicited an strong and immediate denial by KBR, but he instead hemmed and hawed. When finally pinned to "$100? is $100 bucks enough?" the KBR rep finally said no, it wasn't enough

    shined a light on how heartless and cold these execs really are.

    She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.

    I'm glad you understood what I said. I figured someone would read that and come at me with a torch and pitchfork. I completely believe what you said: that no one pointed that out to her.

    Absolutely. The mother - and especially her daughter - deserve justice.

    And of course, when you go to work for either a US or UK company abroad, a woman would expect the threat to be from the outside, not from within her her own company. You would expect them to be real men and have a fierce protectiveness, not to abuse the women themselve. These aren't men. These are pure scum and so are the arseholes who hide and defend them.

    I just coped the article and e-mailed it to my Senator to see wtf he was thinking and if he will explain it to me. This just makes me sick!
