The Power of the Crowd
I recently came across this horrendous story (h/t Mad Priest) about the victim of a convicted rapist having to move because the town supported the rapist - who then raped again. Just after reading this I then read this article in the Guardian about a girl who killed herself after being bullied. For me the shocking thing about both these cases was that people knew about them, but did nothing - or did worse than nothing and colluded.
