We continue our investigation of the issue of gang rape and rape culture with a panel of experts on violent crimes against women. We'll examine the mentality of males that would willingly participate in such a vicious crime, as well as reasons why males are recording these events on video, laughing about the rape, and refusing to intervene on behalf of the victim. Is this truly what our society has become? Where do we go from here?
Joining me tonight is psychotherapist, author and relationships expert Dr. Joyce Morley-Ball (doctorjoyce.com); Carole Bartholomeaux, one of the founders of the Center Against Sexual Assault, the first rape crisis organization in Phoenix; Melody Brooke, MA, LPC, LMFT, a therapist with extensive experience with trauma survivors (ohwowthischangeseverything.com); Detective Kurt Scanio is a 6 year veteran with the Mesa Police Department who now works with the Mesa Police Assn and as a domestic violence and assault detective, hand in hand with victim services throughout the area; The Rockstar of Seduction, Eric Von Sydow, author of the soon to be released book "Metawhore" (hypnotica.org); and Wendell Watkins Sr. (youvestigate.com), who retired from the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) in Washington, D.C., as Deputy Chief of Police with more than 30 years of experience. Chief Watkins also served as commander of the Washington D.C. Sex Offense Branch for five years and is the author of "You Vestigate, Don't Speculate."
