Thread Name: BS: Irish Rugby players rape case
Subject: RE: BS: Irish Rugby players rape case
Let's hope so Jim. It's a crime that is extremely difficult to deal with and prove 'beyond reasonable doubt' as consent may/may not have been given, or understood to have been given. Drink/drugs may play their part, but nevertheless there is no excuse for anyone taking advantage of a woman who is in no fit state to agree to/refuse sex.
In this case, the most infuriating thing is the appalling attitude of the protagonists to the woman concerned after the case was concluded. No basic dignity or respect afforded at all.
It's this I find the most disturbing.
