It was incredibly emotional — incredibly difficult even for an outsider like me to watch what happened as these two young men that had such promising futures, star football players, very good students, literally watched as they believe their life fell apart.
Why is there concern about the rapists lives being ruined? There’s no secret in this world about rape being bad. Since when do criminals “have their lives ruined” by justice being brought against them? They ruined their own lives when they committed the crime.
It’s this person’s opinion that if we have to blame anybody for ruining those kids lives, let’s try either those kids. Or maybe the parents who taught let them go to parties, or taught them that they had a right to take anything they wanted from anybody. We can’t blame the alcohol. It didn’t dive down the kid’s throats without their permission. It’s no secret that alcohol consumption leads to crappy decision making.
Given that the kid’s “apology” consisted mainly of apologizing for sending out pictures, not violating another person’s human dignity, I think Prison is exactly where this self-centered little cuss belongs.
CNN: Get your priorities straight. Start supporting the victim rather than the rapists who’re being convicted in accordance with evidence they created and distributed themselves.
