    When the one who should protect from harassment, being the harasser,

    A video that was spread on Facebook at 11am 2012/11/3, where a Libyan girl is being sexual harassment by a Security guard, that moment when you realize that; the ones who are employed to protect, are not necessary the ones who really protect.
    Some says that this security guard belongs to the supreme security commission while others say he’s with the university security commotion, which should be protecting the university from actions like this.
    I think in the end it’s not important who he works with, as it is important that he’s a security guard who suppose to protect and not to rape!
    I can see this happening everywhere, as we hear all the time about sexual harassments stories in all over the world, but it’s the first time I see a rapist posing next to his victim in a video while he’s harassing her, At least it’s the first time for me…
    As it’s one of a very few times, where a video of sexual harassment of a Libyan girl being spread on Facebook and social media websites, everyone went crazy about the video, it’s true that we were hearing of similar stories in the time of the pervious regime, but at that time no one was able to speak against or even to talk about it, but now since we have nothing to fear of, we should talk about it, and not only talk we should take an action against it and everyone who uses his power to commit crimes.

    “ I’m filming you, so you can’t speak out about me and hurt me” this is the words you can hear the rapist saying to his victim in the video while he is filming her and harassing her.
