Ok, This is the first time I've really spoken about this to anyone other than my family, but since you guys have become like my family, I guess it's only right for me to talk about it here. I don't remember everything but What I'm about to write is pretty much everything I can remember.

In January I was assaulted pretty bad by 2 kids no older than most of the people on here (they were 15 and 16 at the time). They beat me up and smashed two bottles over my head(which I was protecting with my hands) and because of that I now have a scar across the back of my left hand. It was a completely random attack, they didn't know me, I didn't know them but luckily (for me) they were arrested the same night and charged with grievous bodily harm with intent (one of the highest charges you can be given.) I mentioned a few months ago in the chat that I had to go to court as a witness to an assault and the truth is that I had to testify against these assholes.

I had to have plastic surgery and physiotherapy for my hand and I still don't have any feeling in my index and middle finger or around the scar (they completely severed the nerves in the area and the doctors don't know if I'll ever get this feeling back.

Yesterday they were sentenced to 3 1/2 years (15 y/o) and 3 3/4 years (16 y/o) and have been told that they will serve a minimum of 2 years.

That may all seem well and good, justice has been done yadda, yadda but these people have scared me for life and made me terrified of meeting new people; they have made me unable to sleep at night without taking sedatives and made me have panic attacks at the thought of walking down the street on my own. These kids ruined my life and by the time they're 18 they'll be free to do it again to someone else.

How the hell is this justice??

In the spoiler tag are pictures of both my face and hand after the assault. The pictures below may make some people feel uncomfortable or possibly ill. Please do not look at them if you are squeamish.

Spoiler:
 

I think I'm done. Thanks for reading this (assuming you read it of course) and thanks for being awesome, because you all are.

I'm glad that you can talk about this to us, and that you think of us as family. I wish I could say I know what you're going through to make you feel better, but I don't, so all I have right now are hugs.

And about justice... Yeah, justice really isn't quite what someone could hope for. It's all about procedure, and above all, about who has the better lawyer. The rich can get away with crime, while the innocent poor people still get sent to jail. (And don't even get me started on Casey Anthony.)

But I think even those short sentences will get the point accross. About three years of anal rape and humiliation by other inmates does things to people.

Last night I took a look at this topic and then I didn't know what to say. Seeing those pictures and knowing that someone touched you and caused you harm, seeing the hurt on your bruised face and the cut on your hand...I was too angry for words here last night but I think I can control myself now.

1.) I hope those 3 years in prison hold everything those bastards deserve and maybe more.
2.) You can talk about anything here and we will do our best to listen and make you feel better and if we can, even help in some ways. I really feel like we're a family here instead of a gathering of people who came to play a game. I think we were meant to find each other.
3.) YOU CAN COME LIVE WITH ME AND YOU WONT HAVE TO BE SCARED ANYMORE AND I LOVE YOU AND I'LL BEAT THE SHIT OUT OF ANYONE WHO TRIES TO TOUCH YOU EVER AGAIN. *hugs her big sis *

Anyway...last night would've been a TL;DR rant about disgusting human nature and how I couldn't believe this could happen to such a good person and it would've had much cussing and much violence involved. I didn't feel like this was the place for it. This is the calm version, the one I wrote without looking at those anger-inducing pictures. I'm so sorry this happened to you because you're better than this world and we love you.

Aka, I hope you can eventually recover, and that you are never assaulted again.


I personally think that I should share something since you have, I too feel justice isnt fully right. My father (who ive never known) was a drug using, Schizophrenic, violent murderer. In short he murdered someone (it was most likely his own mother) and he claimed insanity and won it, even though everyone who knew him, knew he was sane for it. He currently is in a mental institution where he could be let out if he shows improvement. Even after what he did he still wanted to claim partial rights to contact me. I feel that none of this is right and I personally doubt the justice system's efficiency.

Oh wow... That's a hell of a lot worse than what happened to me.

I still kinda know how that feels. When I was 13 I found out that my father spent 8 hours sharpening a knife only to try and kill my mother while she was pregnant with me (luckily he failed) and he only ended up serving 9 months in jail.

It also reminds me of something my friend did. He collected samurai swords and he's schizophrenic and one day him and his father argued and basically put a blade through his dad (his dad died) and now he's in a high security Mental hospital.

Still... Wow...

I don't believe that justice will ever be enough for victims.
