      Whitewater, United States

According to RAINN, every TWO minutes someone in the US is sexually assaulted. This means that about 207,754 people will be sexual assaulted after this year ends. PLEASE sign this petition which will help rape victims speak thier mind and be heard! We the people of America with freedom of speech need to  speak up for those who have been raped because we never know when we might be in this position. This is very important because rapists scar their victims for a lifetime so they deserve to be in jail for THEIR lifetime!

      why shoudn't it be important to me? To kno that I'm walking into this system where rape is STILL considered "not that big deal."

      I just think that the court system does not always work as they are suppose to work and that they don't make justice to the crimes. Rapists should make a longer term not just a few years.

      Because its something important for me and it need to STOP! People are hurt every 2 seconds and they do not deserve that.
