Rallies Against ‘Killer Kids’ as Raped/Burned Girl Struggles for Life

FEMEN went on top of the Prosecutor General’s Office.

Death to the sadists! Oksana, you have to pull through! Castrate the bastards! Murderers to jail!

One of the three "killer kids" in the Mykolayiv rape-and-burn case happens to be the son of a former prosecutor. (Not according to the local prosecutor’s office, of course.) Another one is the son of the city’s former top official. Well, at least no denials here. Both had been initially released but taken back into custody later on as public pressure built up. In this video, the third suspect apparently takes the fall for his buddies.

In Ukraine, you can beat, rape, strangle, mangle, hunt, kill and even burn people and get away with it. If you have cash or connections, of course. If you don’t, you better get together to defend yourself like these ordinary people do.

Rich "killer kids," or mazhory as we call them in Ukraine, have created a cultural phenomenon far more prevalent than student rampages in the US. Maybe it's because here in Ukraine violent crime of this nature goes unpunished far more often than in the US?

By virtue of the almighty dollar, not probable cause or Miranda, the perpetrators either receive ridiculous sentences or avoid any jail time whatsoever. The list goes on and on.

Some US and EU tourists love Ukrainian oligarchs. But...not the way of life that oligarchy enforces on its aborigines, as opposed to its aficionados. If you know any such aficionados personally, show them this girl.

Now imagine she's your daughter.

Actions speak louder than words. As of today, Ukrainians remain largely lethargic, with just a few small protests here and there. Still, even in the most lethargic part of Ukraine, people already mince no words.

Man: It might be a bit rude, but let him drop dead!

Woman: Let him live like I do. No jobs. My son just came back from the army and there are no jobs.

She’s talking about the guy who’s got a job — the job. The guy who doesn’t show up for work until 11:00 a.m. and calls it a day at 4:15 p.m.

If only he could dig up some more of that magic enriched uranium at his marvelous Mezhyhirya ranch.

Wouldn’t that be a great way to enrich Ukraine’s democracy at the upcoming Nuclear Servility Summit in Seoul?

R.I.P. Oksana (died March 29).

What happened to Oksana is horrifying and heartbreaking.

What a brave, amazing young woman. It can only be hoped that she will inspire decent people in Ukraine to put an end to their chronic lethargy that you speak of.

I can't imagine what it's like to have one's bones burned to ashes and feel every moment of it and stay alive.

As horrible as it may sound, it seems we Ukrainians need more stories like this to hit closer and closer to home.

Seems like there's someone willing to make money on her daughter's disaster.

Could be true. After all, mom's an alcoholic, dad's a con. Not exactly the best role models, huh?

That doesn't change the fact that she was BURNED and LEFT FOR DEAD. Nor does it change the fact that the suspects were initially released. Why? Because they had strings to pull.

Now would it be OK if we let the guys in charge of our country divert our attention from these facts? I don't think so. It's not the character of the victim that's at issue here. It's the nature of the crime we should be looking at.

She may or may not be the sluttiest slut on this planet with the crappiest parents in the universe. Still, she didn't rob or bribe anyone.

What happened to her can happen to anyone of us in Ukraine.
