#Occupy Baltimore: Raped? Don't Report It, It Makes Us Look Bad

'Occupy' memo could discourage victims from reporting assaults
Efforts by the Occupy Baltimore protest group to evolve into a self-contained, self-governing community have erupted into controversy with the distribution of a pamphlet that victim advocates and health workers fear discourages victims of sexual assaults from contacting police.

The pamphlet says that members of the protest group who believe they are victims or who suspect sexual abuse "are encouraged to immediately report the incident to the Security Committee," which will investigate and "supply the abuser with counseling resources."
Wow, one can only imagine what kind of counseling they might arrange.  Aroma therapy, rebirthing, past lives?

Of course, if you don't give them what they want, more money for the government, they'll threaten you with rape:
