Joseph Parker, one of the leaders of that indefensible group of New Zealand gang rapists who call themselves the Roast Busters, has skipped town after allegedly receiving threats towards himself and his family. After the international media spotlight shown down upon he and his crew’s revolting habit of luring in teenage girls, getting them drunk, gang raping them and then bragging about it online, Parker, 18, apparently did not take well to his newfound fame and used his family’s money (his dad is an actor who was in “The Matrix”) to get the hell out of dodge.
Meanwhile, his family is actually defending their son, claiming he actually went to the police himself, after “sex” with one of the 13-year-old victims “went too far.” That same 13-year-old went to the police, claiming that three young men forced group sex on her. So what exactly did Parker do in this situation, according to his family? As reported by the New Zealand Herald, “when she protested, Parker had pulled another boy off her, saying they had gone too far.” Sure, “gone too far” is one way to put gang raping a 13-year-old. I think Erin Gloria Ryan at Jezebel put it best: “Unfortunately, saying sex has gone too far while a drunk 13-year-old is being raped is like saying a candle had ‘gone too far’ after the entire house is engulfed in flames.” You can run, but you can’t hide, Joseph Parker, you shit stain of a human being — the internet never forgets.
