Woman Allegedly Drugged & Raped On Facebook Live
The incident happened to 20-something Jasmine Eiland on Saturday night (Jan. 19) at Opera, a popular nightclub in the Atlanta area.
At the beginning of the clip, Eiland can be seen smiling and sipping her drink. Many who have seen the video claim to have seen a pill in the bottom of her drink, which was given to her by the unidentified man she was dancing with.
Here is a video of Jasmine early on in the evening (below):
Later on in the video, you see Jasmine, who had been rapping along to her favorite songs and dancing, started slurring her words and talking about how the drinks had her “f**ked up.”
Not too long afterward, the video shows the man (allegedly) raping Jasmine, who is who seems to be very inebriated at this point, in the middle of the dancefloor. She is constantly yelling “Stop!” and begs for help.
But perhaps one of the most disturbing parts of the video is while all of this is going on with Jasmine, the video shows other people in the club standing around and recording the incident on their phones, instead of actually helping her like she was begging them to.
In the middle of the assault, a woman places her hand on Jasmine’s shoulder but yet does nothing to stop the man who is (allegedly) raping her.
The day after the incident, Jasmine Eiland took to her Facebook page to post a series of messages. She first wrote: “I’m ok.” A follow-up post a few minutes later read: “Please no calls/text I’m still gathering myself please.”
She said in another series of posts, this time via her Instagram Stories: “I am doing fine. I just want to be left alone. I will delete my account again. Just leave me alone.”
In another video she shares how she couldn’t take the video down because of the investigation by the police.
Gossip news site, Gossipinthecity.com posted that they believe they have found the man in the video and he says he will be going to the police with his lawyer
Almost every day, the news contains another story of sexual assault. Those stories that make the news are likely only a small fraction of those assaults reported, and only a minority of victims ever makes a formal complaint to police. The math is almost overwhelming: each year, an estimated 237,868 Americans over the age of 12 are raped or sexually assaulted, and nearly one-fifth of American women report having being raped at some point in their lives.
Date rape, also known as “drug-facilitated sexual assault,” is any type of sexual activity that a person does not agree to. It may come from someone you know, someone may have just met, and/or someone thought you could trust.
Date rape drugs can make people become physically weak or pass out. This is why people who want to rape someone use them—because they leave individuals unable to protect themselves.
Many of these drugs have no color, smell, or taste, and people often do not know that they’ve taken anything. Many times people who have been drugged (usually girls or women, but not always) are unable to remember what happened to them.
The three most common date rape drugs are Rohypnol® (flunitrazepam), GHB (gamma hydroxybutryic acid), and ketamine.
Rohypnol (also known as roofies, forget-me-pill, and R-2) is a type of prescription pill known as a benzodiazepine—it’s chemically similar to drugs such as Valium or Xanax, but unlike these drugs, it is not approved for medical use in this country.
