If anyone asked me should they take anything to court, particularly rape, I would say absolutely not unless you have been maimed or it resulted in death. I believe in reporting the case to police just not taking it through the courts and then the victim be humiliated beyond belief. Do you know the law (Victoria) is that if the accused thinks he had consent no matter how unbelievable that may be to the ordinary person then he cannot be convicted. Because he honestly thought he had consent. So basically our kids are not safe, ever. boys or girls when it comes down to it.

The Judge is this case had to give them some sentence simply because of the public backlash. I hate the legal system and the process.

This topic really makes me incredibly angry as you can probably guess. Rape is the only crime where the complainant is treated on the stand as the criminal. There has to be better ways to deal with these crimes and far better sentences. Thieves get more time for stealing a handbag.

There are no words for how profane it is that a should society should value the delicate sensibilities of religious menfolk over the precious beards over protecting women from violent sexual assault. It's despicable.
