I am....stunned......to read about this...(rape)

I am truly truly shocked and stunned that such a person out there could do this.........:

*from a Paper Source

A GRANDMOTHER dying of cancer has been raped on a hospital ward.

The sickening assault on the 71-year-old marks a new level of depravity in the tide of crime sweeping Britain.

Doctors and nurses wept after the frail patient revealed her horrific ordeal. She had kept silent about it for THREE WEEKS because she felt ashamed and did not want her family to know what happened.

She finally blurted out her torment to a GP who alerted police.

The married pensioner, with only months to live, went into King’s College Hospital, South London, for an operation at the end of April.

In the early hours of May 1 she got out of bed to go to a ladies’ loo a few yards away.

She was followed in by a man and raped.

A shocked member of staff said: “It is the worst thing anybody has ever heard of happening in a hospital.

People were crying after finding out.

The victim is dying and the last memory her family are going to have of her is the fact she was raped.

Although the woman had been on powerful cancer drugs, police said they had evidence to confirm her story.

Det Insp Martin Ward, of Streatham CID, said: What happened is simply indescribable. She is very ill and has only a short time to live.

Her husband and family are obviously extremely upset by what has happened to her. The attack is another blow to public confidence in an NHS reeling from crisis to crisis.

And it raises fresh fears about security at the nation’s hospitals.

The victim was on a large, mixed ward which deals with patients of all ages suffering cancer and other illnesses.

People entering must tap in a special code on a combination lock.

Detectives are questioning staff and patients who were there at the time of the rape.

They are also examining the possibility that a prowler could have sneaked in if the security door was left open accidentally.

The pensioner — who must not be identified — lives in the South East but outside London.

Mr Ward said: “She didn’t report what had happened straight away because she said she was ashamed about it.

“She went back home from hospital and a few weeks later finally mentioned it.

“She and her husband are a lovely couple and she is a much-loved grandmother and an outstanding member of her community.”

A spokeswoman at King’s College said: "The hospital and staff are deeply saddened by this incident. “We have extended our sympathies to the patient and her family.

“The Hospital Trust is working closely with the police investigation.”

you know,
we belong to a horrible dispicable race...the human race that is.

The more I learn about what people do the less respect and hope I have for humans in general.

You're right.

It makes me shiver and shudder now that I hear that, and a little weary because I work in a major hospital. I guess I'll be watching everyone in the hospital a hell of a lot closer than I have been before.

That is one of the most horrific things I have ever heard. I can't believe that someone would do that to a woman, even worse to a dying woman.

How someone in there right mind would do this is unbelievable. This is so sad. You can't feel safe anywhere nowdays. The human race, I think, will be the end of humans in this world. It so sad to think that some psycho people out there are animals and not humans. I don't know why this shocks me, but it does! This is so sad.

While it is truly awful, we have to look at it objectively; this piece of sickening evil is NOT the entire race entire - it is just one man who has stooped so low. This man should be found and incarcerated in MY system of Prison.

However, the article in question is filled with nonsense; there is no crim 'sweeping' Britain, and the NHS, though faced with certain crises, isn't as bad as it is being made out. This is not about the Government and its failings, its about sickening human behaviour.

Poor woman.

I wonder what kind of evidence they got, since she revealed the incident three weeks later.

As you prolly know, the older you get the longer some wounds take to heal. The poor lady may have had internal damage done. That thought now considered somehow makes it seem even worse. There are other ways too to tell such things I guess.
Such an awful shame.
