Child Sex Abuse Reports Spike As Country Shelters In Place, Advocates Say
For most Americans, sheltering in place is a sensible act of self-protection amid the coronavirus pandemic. But home can be a dangerous place for some ? like children in abusive situations.
Children face a heightened risk for sexual abuse during this time, child advocates told HuffPost. Scott Berkowitz, president of the Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network, said RAINN has seen an uptick in minors reporting sexual violence in March, the month most shelter-in-place orders were implemented across the country.
“Last month, for the first time ever, a majority of RAINN’s sexual abuse hotline users were minors,” he told HuffPost.
Just over half of the people who called RAINN’s hotline last month who identified their age were under 18. Of those, 67% identified their perpetrator as a family member and, within that group, 79% said they were living with that perpetrator. RAINN’s victim service programs help on average about 25,000 people every month.
Berkowitz said the reason for the increased calls from minors could be that children can’t access the safety net of other adults they usually see outside the home.
Staying At Home Has Led To An Increase In Child Abuse Cases — Here’s How To Help
The thugs who doused a trans woman with petrol and burned her alive will not face murder charges
The 42-year-old woman, named locally as Mira, was set upon by a gang of thugs for allegedly stealing a truck driver’s phone and wallet.
When the mob was unable to find any of the possessions she was accused of stealing, they beat her, poured two litres of gasoline on her, and burned her alive. She died in hospital a day later on Sunday.
As international human rights groups called for justice, Indonesian police declared they would not be bringing murder charges because they believe the suspects who set the fire had not burned the trans woman intentionally.
Six suspects have been identified, three of whom had been arrested. North Jakarta police chief Budhi Herdi Susianto acknowledged that one of them lit a match but said they did not mean to burn her.

The rise of domestic abuse during COVID-19 in LGBTQ relationships and how you can get help
The data I have been able to collate tells me this: that 1 in every 4 lesbians and up to half of gay men have been a victim of domestic abuse at one time in their adult lives and that this figure is nearly at 80% if you are a transgender. The Office for National Statistics collated “experimental” data that informed the reader as of 2017: 1.1 million people over 16 identified themselves as LGB (there is currently no data for those identifying as transgender) out of a UK population aged 16 or over of 52.8 million, just 2% of the population.
However, what do the figures tell us about right now for LGBTQ victims? Sadly nothing. If you were heterosexual I would be able to tell you that every domestic abuse charity in England and Wales has seen a rise in calls to their helplines and in daily visits to their websites (Refuge has recorded a 25% rise in calls and over 100% rise in daily visits to their website). I could even tell you with (disturbing) confidence that this rise has been recognised across the world, but the LGBTQ victim’s voice remains shrouded.

‘Most homophobic’ minister in Israel, who thinks all LGBT+ people are sinners, tests positive for COVID-19
According to The Times of Israel, Litzman, 71, has been accused of violating his own ministry’s guidelines on social distancing in order to continue to attend prayer services.
As well as being Israel’s health minister, he also leads the ultra-Orthodox United Torah Judaism party and witnesses said he was seen praying at the home of another member of his sect three days after indoor services were banned.
His own department’s guidelines became stricter, barring prayer services altogether, but Litzman was later seen attending a service at a synagogue near his home.

Baltimore’s Gangs Aren’t Going To Let Some Coronavirus Slow Them Down
Social distancing may be helpful in slowing the spread of a virus, but it doesn’t do a thing in terms of gang violence because six feet is still considered a very short range when aiming a handgun. That may be the lesson coming out of Charm City as the pandemic grinds on. Private businesses and schools may be shut down, but the gang bangers still out there murdering each other with abandon. The body count in Baltimore from gang warfare is still leaving the coronavirus in the dust.

A TEENAGE paperboy obsessed with vampires murdered a 90-year-old woman, ripped her heart out and drank her blood in the belief that he would become immortal, a new documentary reveals.
And Mathew Hardman would have gone on to prey on other elderly people had he not been caught for the murder of Mabel Leyshon, described by an officer as one of the most gruesome in British legal history. Mabel had been widowed for 40 years and had lived in her bungalow in Anglesey for 50 years when Hardman broke in as she watched TV on a 2001 December evening. Mabel, hard of hearing, 4ft 9in, and very thin, suffered 22 stab wounds as she tried to defend herself from Hardman, 17.

Amid coronavirus pandemic, black mistrust of medicine looms
NEW YORK -- Just as the new coronavirus was declared a global pandemic, gym members in New York City frantically called the fitness center where Rahmell Peebles worked, asking him to freeze their memberships.
Peebles, a 30-year-old black man who’s skeptical of what he hears from the news media and government, initially didn’t see the need for alarm over the virus.
“I felt it was a complete hoax,” Peebles said. “This thing happens every two or four years. We have an outbreak of a disease that seems to put everybody in a panic.”
Peebles is among roughly 40 million black Americans deciding minute by minute whether to put their faith in government and the medical community during the coronavirus pandemic. Historic failures in government responses to disasters and emergencies, medical abuse, neglect and exploitation have jaded generations of black people into a distrust of public institutions.
“I’ve just been conditioned not to trust,” said Peebles...
Next season of Harley Quinn will explore her romance with Poison Ivy
Supervillain / anti-hero Harley Quinn is a fan favourite in the LGBTQ community, and not least for her relationship with fellow villain Poison Ivy. And although the cartoon series on the DC Universe streaming service has hinted at their relationship, it hasn’t been explicit with it.
But in the second season, which began airing on Friday (3 April), this is set to change, with a small moment in the trailer showing Harley and Ivy briefly holding hands.
And speaking to Metro, the show’s showrunner, Patrick Schumacker has confirmed that this relationship will be explored. “It will develop more, and it’s definitely going to evolve into, I think, what a lot of people are hoping it will,” he explained.
