cultureunseen:

Charda Gregory abducted, humiliated, violated, restrained, scalped and tortured. 
If this were reversed, with black police officers who were sworn to uphold peace and justice but instead were documented victimizing a white woman (who was already a victim), this news would have trumped the Olympics!

Truncated version: drugged at a party, abducted to a motel, wakes up during unwanted sexual violation in a motel room full of strangers, fights like hell to escape, motel employee calls the authorities, she gets arrested for destroying motel property and it just gets worst from there.

Every officer who participated in it and even those who witnessed it and did nothing should be punished but instead they just fired the woman?
No rape kit, no police report on the people inside the motel room, no investigation of her claims, no accountability for missing motel entry records, no video from the motel but she gets detained for fourteen days?

(Btw, when did your tax dollars begin purchasing Abu Ghraib type water boarding chairs?)

This is my dear Friend Helena Nana Ansah. She is a lively welcoming and intelligent young lady.
Meeting her at university meant I was allowed to have an insight into her life and she welcomed me, she loves her country and strongly believes in making a change.
Helena and I took part in Miss Tourism Ghana UK 2014 in which I am now holding the 2nd princess Title and she holds the title of the Queen.

A Queen loves her nation, she welcomes others, she doesn’t allow her title to belittle others but her grace and humbleness attracts respect from others, the right person won.
Queen Helena is a heartwarming young adult who has passion for her homeland not only is she naturally beautiful her heart holds beauty.
This is Miss Tourism Ghana UK 2014.
