Project Unbreakable

posted by Jason Kottke   Sep 19, 2013

This is powerful and amazing (and upsetting): Project Unbreakable is a photography project that features images of sexual assault survivors holding signs showing what others (attackers, family members, cops, etc.) said to them about the assaults.

It’s difficult to pick the yuckiest bottom-of-the-barrel sludge here, but the comments from the police officers really get my dander up.

“If you were my daughter I would have killed you.” - Lady police officer while being interrogated

“If you don’t tell us how many people you’ve slept with, the ADA won’t even consider your case.” - Interviewing Dectective

“This is why we have underage drinking laws! THIS IS YOUR FAULT! If you hadn’t been drinking this wouldn’t have happened to you!” - St. Petersburg police when I tried to press charges

Sickening, sickening. The police are supposed to protect the vulnerable, not persecute them. (via @rebeccablood)
