36-year-old Beth Rae Harris of Chicago got into a fight with her 23-year-old friend over a man at a club. They supposedly made up, but according to police Harris had other ideas. Harris is said to have gone out with her ‘friend’ and the friend drank heavily and crashed at Harris’ apartment. While the friend was unconscious, Harris allegedly had one or more men rape the unconscious woman out of revenge. The victim wasn’t even aware of what happened until she saw the rape being shown on her own Snapchat account. Harris was allegedly berating the victim while the woman was being raped. Witnesses were able to identify Harris through the video. The man, or men, involved in the rape have yet to be charged and the investigation is ongoing.
Is this how far we’ve fallen as a society when we’re orchestrating elaborate rape revenge plans like this over a man at a club? I’d hate to see what Harris would have done if her friend had done something more serious like not paying for her drinks or something. That’s not even mentioning the man, or men, who supposedly willingly took place in the rape of an unconscious woman. Then to further humiliate the victim, have the rape broadcast over her own Snapchat account. Who thinks of things like this?
Harris has been charged with non-consensual dissemination of sexual image and is being held on $150,000 bond. If she’s convicted, there should be a Snapchat account set up that just livestreams her prison cell 24 hours a day.
