    “Raped a man with a dildo”

    Brings the same point across while accentuating what actually happened.

    They raped him. They forcefully penetrated him with a fake penis. That’s rape even according to the current bullshit definition.

      I totally agree there. They should make it as graphic and specific as possible to really show how fucked up the situation is and show how terrible the perpetrators are, at least in my opinion.

      This & the word “torture” could also mean many things yet they used it as well

      I agree with the article only using the word rape to describe that they were threatened to be anally raped. I think calling everything rape dilutes the meaning of the word. Forcefully stuffing a plastic or silicon object in someone’s mouth doesnt quite fit the word. Cops are absolute vile pieces of shit and I’m annoyed I had to read the article to know what the misleading headline was talking about. The comments weren’t helping either.
