For those unaware, some reality TV dude is now in jail for straight-up r@ping his tween daughter several times over a couple years. Yesterday I hear that the older daughter (who I guess was on the show too…never saw it) is coming forward saying the dad did the same thing to her when she was her sister’s age.
Ok, so first off, this guy is one evil MFer that deserves to rot in a PMITA prison. Obviously both daughters have been seriously traumatized by their own father and I can only imagine the pyschological repercussions from something like that. BUT, as an older sister that’s aware of her father’s “behavior” shouldn’t she be obligated to look out for her little sister instead of letting her get r@ped for two years?
I mean, the older sister apparently went through the exact same thing from 10-12. Even if she didn’t what to get the police involved, when her sister was approaching that age I’d think she’d do something to prevent it.
Obviously the facts aren’t out yet, but considering the two years of hell the little sister went through, I’d say the big sister didn’t do much if anything to stop what she probably knew was happening. So, while big sis surely has some mental issues she’s been working through over the last 10 years, she effectively stood by and let the same thing happen to her little sis.
(I’d also like to make a distinction here before someone brings it up. Yes, I’m always the one on here that says we should never blame the victim in r@pe cases, but this is something different entirely. The dad is a sick bastard and his actions are 100% his fault. Just seems like this could have been prevented if the older sister would have looked out for her little sister - the victim in this particular scenario.)
The older sister is now 22 and - I think but I’m not sure - is 8-10 years older than her little sister. And, I thought I made it pretty clear that I sympathize with the psychological torment she’s suffered and will likely suffer the rest of her life. But, that’s all the more reason I’d think she’d protect her little sister. If I have the ages correct, the big sis was an adult (or damn close) when her little sister was entering the danger zone with her dad.
I’m not saying we should cruxify the older sister or even discuss bringing up charges. Just seems to me she likely knew what was going to happen and did nothing (or perhaps not enough) to stop it. For the first time ever, I may have to record Dr. Phil and see what she has to say for herself (show is on tomorrow btw).
AND, the older sister had years to get away from her dad and instead chose to co-star with him on Sons of Guns. Something seems rotten in Denmark is all I’m saying.
I’m with Sweep on this one. Older sister should have looked out for younger sister and should have even told dad she would blow his head off if he even looked at the younger sister in the wrong way. If she suspected anything was happening with the younger sister, she should have gone ahead and blown his head off and she would have been acquitted in 20 minutes.
A “youth” correctional facility near me used to have an upholstery shop and I would occasionally take some furniture over there to get redone. I’m not ashamed to admit that I was always a bit nervous pulling into the loading dock where there were usually 5 or 6 inmates milling around doing whatever and 1 guard sitting in his little secure bunker.
