That may be so, and I am empathetic.  However, if you make a report to the police, even if its futile, you then have a basis to file a civil complaint to sue the perpetrators.  I'd sue the beejeebus out of them.

    Is anyone else disturbed that it wasn't reported to the police at the time it happened?  Did the victims ever say why they didn't report it?  









  No, if a bunch of locals beat me up in a tiny Southern town, I'd want to get the heck out of there too. Unfortunately, there is no guarantee that every small town has an upstanding police force like Damascus.
