Here is a new low for movie goers, in a scene for the movie "Hounddog" a character played by 12-year-old actress Dakota Fanning reportedly is violently raped. This is shown on the screen! There are too many questions to list in one blog, but here are some of the more pressing ones. Where is Dakotas parents? How in the world could they agree to allow their 12 year old to participate in a rape scene where she is the victim? Where are the police? Without a doubt this is a crime, and the Wilmington North Carolina Police, where the film was shot, have an obligation to charge some people. The final question is who in the world will go to see this movie? I would hope not many. There would be nothing better than for this movie to be a colossal flop. The American people showed that they have a moral line in the O.J. book fiasco, and it would be a great message if this were handled in the same way. This crosses all lines of decency and should not be seen by anyone.

Alright,more questions, how many sick men will watch this movie and copy cat what they have seen? How many real 12 year old girls will be victims due to this sick movie? Unfortunately this movie has received more publicity than it deserves, but it is important for you to know what is happening, and for sure keep an ear open to the movies your kids will watch. If you hear hounddog and they are not talking about listening to an Elvis song, but going to a movie, it is time to step in and save them from seeing things that will trouble them forever!
