Wall St. Protester Admits She Was Sexually Assaulted…But Doubts Rapes Can Happen

The New York Post video in this story is a bit confusing.  It shows a woman claiming to be the victim of a sexual assault at the Occupy Wall Street protests in New York City.  Literally seconds after detailing the uninvited physical groping she experienced (a man went up her shirt while he thought she was sleeping), the woman seems to have a hard time imagining that a rape could have occurred in the park.

On the clip she relates her personal story of a sexual assault and then is asked about the reported rapes in Zuccotti Park to which she responds:

“If it was a rape, I’m not sure. I can’t imagine that a rape would happen here… simply because we all live in such close quarters like – if anyone were to get attacked, all you have to do is scream ‘security’ and you’ve got somebody in your tent, you know.”
