Journalist Lara Logan, who was tragically gang-raped back in 2011 by a mob in Egypt, has spoken out to demolish Minneapolis City Council President Lisa Bender for stating that fears about someone breaking into a person’s home come “from a place of privilege.”
During a CNN interview on Monday, Bender was asked, “What if in the middle of the night my home is broken into. Who do I call?”
“Yes, I hear that loud and clear from a lot of my neighbors. And I know— and myself, too, and I know that that comes from a place of privilege,” she responded.

Logan was horrified by this statement, and she took to Twitter to fire back at Bender. “I remember when I was being gang-raped & beaten by a mob in Egypt, would have been great to have a police force to call then,” Logan wrote. “Would that have been my white privilege talking?”
“My heart breaks for every victim of racial injustice,” Logan went on to add. “And for every person, including police, killed by the mob of anarchists & their powerful political backers. How long before they come for me? No idea. But there is only one truth. That’s all we have.”

In 2011, Logan was a CBS correspondent covering the celebrations in Tahrir Square after President Hosni Mubarak announced he was stepping down, according to The Blaze. As chaos erupted in the streets, Logan found herself becoming separated from her team, and she ended up being raped and beaten before being rescued by a group of Egyptian women. Liberals like Bender are trying to bring about a “police-free world,” but Logan has seen firsthand how dangerous life can get when there is no police personnel in sight.
