A news story is beginning to make the rounds today about two "young women" who were kidnapped, tied up and sexually assaulted at the Travel Inn Motel on Weston Street..
The fact of the matter is that the two young women freely admitted to police that they went to the hotel room specifically with the intent of buying drugs. The two "young women" had just finished their shifts as strippers at a local adult establishment.. They further told police that they spent the night partying and doing drugs in the room. In fact at one point, one of the "young women" went to her car to get her laptop so they could play music during their drug binge.
I am not in anyway condoning sexual assault, but let's tell the full story here, rather than portray these fine "young women" as innocent victims that were preyed upon by some deviant in that awful City of Hartford, where no one is safe.
I also wonder if the "victims" will face any charges since their intent was clearly to commit a criminal act. If you play with snakes, the chances are pretty good you are going to get bit.
