Raped without penetration

Sometimes I find things online that upset me so much, I am actually unable to find the words to express my anger. I saw this video a few days ago, and it wasn't until now that I could even try to write about it.

As a woman, I go to great lengths to hide my nudity. Nothing funny is intended in that statement. After two children, being naked in front of a room full of strangers would be a nightmare for me. The video I want you to see is very hard to watch. The victim is a woman named Hope Steffy, and her assailants are police; a room full of men and women that were called to Steffy's home by her family after she'd been assaulted.

Watch the video, listen to the story, and let me know how you feel afterwards.
