Let’s go into this case with one simple understanding: anyone who sexually violates a woman against her will doesn’t belong behind bars, they belong dead.
So it’s positively crazy that one of two young men who broke into a UK house recently and brutally assaulted a woman at gunpoint is getting a mere six years for his despicable crime.
The assailant is unnamed, because he is 16 years old, and this is presumably also why his sentence is so ridiculously short. It remains unclear, however, why a man who participated in a premeditated sexual assault with a deadly weapon would even be tried as a minor, however, in a country where the legal drinking age is 18.
Here’s the story of this unidentified assailant and his partner, Aquib Ahmed, according to Yahoo News:
A teenager has been jailed for 20 years after he repeatedly raped a young woman at gunpoint.
Police said Aquib Ahmed and a 16-year-old boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons, operated as a “twisted tag team” as they subjected the woman, who is in her 20s, to “a disgusting, heartless attack”.
The pair broke into a house in the Fir Vale area of Sheffield in March last year looking for drugs and threatening the man and his daughter inside, South Yorkshire Police said.
But they realised they had targeted the wrong house as the occupants had no criminal or drugs connections.
The pair returned three days later when they subjected the young woman to “a disgusting, heartless attack”.
Detective Constable David Devey said: “They returned to the house, purely for their own sexual gratification, where they threatened the man and his daughter at gunpoint before they each raped the young woman repeatedly.
So, the adult assailant gets 20 years, which already falls incredibly short of what he deserves, while his slightly younger counterpart will walk in a mere six years.
This is not justice. This woman, only 20-years-old, was brutally attacked and will have to carry this horrific memory with her the rest of her life. Nothing will ever be the same for her, and she will never be able to restore the damage that these young men have done to her mentally or spiritually. And this pathetic human court thinks that a mere six years is enough to reform this incredibly evil young man.
Sometimes, we just need to remember that the only perfect justice will be given out by Jesus Christ when He at long last sits on His throne and judges the world. Our courts constantly fall short of truly making right these terrible injustices.
Jesus is also the only way this young woman will ever be restored, no matter what has been done to her in this life, so remember to pray for her and all victims of such disgusting crimes.
