Agreed! Good news. I couldn’t believe there was a guy on FR defending those guys because the girl was drunk!

The one was crying when I watched Fox News around 4PM...of course - he thought the whole things was funny up to the point he was caught...sicking...taking advantage of another in a weakened state demonstrates evil - plain and simple!

This was a shocking case. Agreed, the girl should not have been drunk. But anyone with any sense of right and wrong would not force themselves on a drunk girl.

Probably thought he wouldn’t be found guilty. What a surprise!

As a teenager I remember my mother always used to tell me that if I saw a girl being taken advantage of it was my responsiblity to try and do something about it. I was never tested in this regard but maybe I just ran around with a better class of people. Either way, teach your children well indeed.

Thread from yesterday.

This isn’t over yet as there will be others indicted I suspect. A Grand Jury is probably going to be convened to look at the entire situation.

They’re sorry they got caught, and hiding behind a football uniform wasn’t going to bail them out this time.

I’m sorry I got caught. I’m sorry I’m going to jail. I’m sorry that when I get out of jail any potential employer is going to google my name and it’ll be mud, and I’ll probably be on some sex offender list for the rest of my life.

The kid has no future at all.

If they did that to my kid, they would pray they would never be let out of jail.

I hope they also go after the parents where the party(s) were held/ alcohol was served.

My father told me that if I ever convinced a young lady to do something she did not want to do that he would let her father have first crack at me and he would dispose of the pieces that were left over. Dad was not a hitter but I believed him with all my heart

Few cases get this far because, as if the rape wasn’t bad enough, the defendants’ attorneys did a follow on emotional assault of that young woman.

We worked with a similar situation years ago, singular girl who’d been slipped the rape drug into a drink by local high school jocks she’d thought of as friends. The boys were from affluent families, hers was lower middle class, so they felt entitled. Never saw such brats in my life. But there was one boy whose mama apparently gave the same advice as yours. He stopped the group assault.

Unfortunately, the girl in our case couldn’t handle the pressure and settled, so those scum are still out there, with nothing on their records. They undoubtedly got admitted to good colleges and offered good jobs.

Maybe those scum bags will have daughters. I wish no ill to the (future) children but there is no peace for the wicked so imagine what will go through their heads every time little princess goes out the door.

“They’re sorry they got caught,”

Reminds of the scene from this movie...

No, no, can't be true, papertyger assured us it was all a trumped up charge by feminist journalists to destroy the guys........the hidden evidence would come out that the girl was just as guilty as the guys (so she deserved it.......).

Amen, amen, amen. I’m just as angry at the watchers as the rapists. I was raised and trained that it was my DUTY to intervene in such situations, no matter what, even at the cost of my life. To watch and take photos is, to me, 99% as evil as the rape.

I’ve observed over time that those who themselves were the worst offenders (not in this category) turned out strictest with their own daughters

What really gripes me is the lenient sentences that so many judges hand out.

I prefer States like Texas, where the JURY decides the guilt AND the sentence.

Those dirtbags would probably be looking at a minimum of five years here in Texas. ....Back in the 1950s and before, rape was considered a capital offense in Texas and rated the death penalty. Even today, rape often draws a sentence of a couple of decades or more.

Liberal judges setting sentences really sucks.

Yeah, real funny when he didn’t have to live with the consequences like the poor girl he raped does.

The scum isn’t sorry for what he did, just that he got caught and has to pay.

If you witness a crime like rape and don’t try to stop it, you can legally be found guilty of rape as well. I met someone once who had that happen to him. Jail time because he didn’t intervene and stop his friend from raping a girl they picked up hitchhiking.

I'm not surprised.

So long as women have "uncle toms" like you "dere to protek dem," they will continue to benefit from the "more equal than others" status they currently enjoy.

Congratulations on your very personal victory, "Boxer."

Personal victory?

Sorry, being sane instead of being a total moron like you is not really a victory.

It's simply normal.......

If crusading for the "she deserved it" crowd because she was drunk and stupid is really your thing, good luck with your life, you're gonna need it. A lot.
