crime and punishment

I saw this yesterday and ignored it. Not intentionally. I was hiding. It hits home in a very profound way.

Please go here: Contempt of Court, Fernando Alves Rape Walk, Dawg's Blog

And here: Action Time, Dammit Janet!

And here: Crime of impunity, Broadsides

Thanks to Dr Dawg, Fern and Antonia - and to all of you who get involved.

I give this post the label "bigotry" for both the crime and the punishment. Both demonstrate an utter contempt for women.

A "crime of opportunity".

A woman walks into a bar. Now she's not a person, she's an opportunity. An opportunity for someone to drug, beat and rape her.

And her assailant is considered "not pathologically dangerous".

If this isn't pathologically dangerous, I am sick to think of what a person would have to do to qualify for that label.
