The good...


From Robin William's HBO comedy special. Very funny. Talking about aging. But if you haven't seen this special I recommend it. It's awesome, in it's entirety, and on the link bars there's more. I just picked one randomly, but they're great. He's wonderful.

And now for something not so wonderful. -----

The bad.

A PEDOPHILE who raped a 10-year-old girl will be free in just four months after a British judge said his victim had "dressed provocatively".---

Window cleaner Keith Fenn, 24, could have been jailed for life after twice attacking the girl in a riverside park.
Judge Julian Hall was at the centre of a storm over the "pathetic" sentence he imposed after hearing the girl had appeared much older than her age.
The same judge caused uproar earlier this year by setting free another paedophile and telling him to give his victim money "to buy a nice new bicycle".
In the latest case, Oxford Crown Court heard harrowing details of the assault on the 10-year-old. She was attacked in a park in South Oxfordshire by Fenn and his accomplice Darren Wright, 34, on October 14 last year.
Fenn removed all her clothes and raped her, then Wright took her to his home and sexually assaulted her.
Yet Judge Hall said the case was exceptional because the "young woman" had been wearing a frilly bra and thong.
The girl has been in local authority care since the age of four.
She was on her own when she met the pair in the street. They went to the park together. The judge said he faced a moral dilemma.
The court heard that the girl regularly wore make-up, strappy tops and jeans.
"It is quite clear she is a very disturbed child and a very needy child and she is a sexually precocious child. She liked to dress provocatively," the judge said.
"Did she look like she was 10? Certainly not. She looked 16."
He gave Fenn concurrent two-year and 18-month sentences but he will be free in just weeks after spending eight months in jail awaiting sentence.
Wright is a free man because he too had served eight months on remand.
Yesterday Dr Michele Elliott, of Kidscape, said: "This is beyond pathetic, it is utterly derisory. For the judge to say that the way she was dressed in any way excuses a 24-year-old man having sex with her is disgraceful and ridiculous."
Fenn admitted two counts of rape of a child under 13 and Wright admitted one charge of causing or inciting sexual activity with a child aged under 13.

I swear to God. I don't even know what to say.

I'm just so angry.

I think he should be sent to life in prison, and I think that he should have to wear a shirt saying what it is that he did and how old the victim was that he did it too.

And that there should be conjugal visits, for all other inmates that want to spend some quality time with him in a soundproof room with no guards, at all, and no time limit for the other prisoners to do as they please with him.

I feel this way for sexual offenders in general, but especially those that abuse children.

As a rule other prisoners aren't big fans of child molesters as I undersand it.

So, is the judge saying that its ok to rape someone OVER 16 then? God!! That makes me angry too.

I live in Oxford. If I see that Judge I'll give him a piece of my mind.

Absolutely disgusting.

You really should. I'm so pissed,

And apparently if you're sexually provocative there's no such thing as rape.

You're always asking for it.

What I don't understand is why, if she was in local authority since the age of four, she wasn't being better supervised?! Why was she allowed to be meeting men in the park at 10 years old--ALONE?

The whole thing is sick.

From the BBC story

"Lawyers for the defendants stressed that the sex had been consensual, and was only termed 'rape' because of the framework of law.

They said the judge stated that doctors who examined the girl believed she was in her mid-teens and she was treated by most people as older than her actual age"

This means that the defendants had a reasonable belief that she was over 16 and therefore legally competent to consent. The offence was rape due to the girl being incompetent to consent due to age, so her consent was invalid. Prior to 2003 the offence committed on these facts would have been unlawful intercourse with a girl under the age of thirteen.

She's ten.

There's no such thing as consent at ten.

She was raped.

Oh. Of course. I forgot. Rape is legal if you dress like a whore. Kidnapping and sexual assault is ok if the victim looks older. No 10 year old EVER looks 16, I call bullshit.

This is why I fucking hate humans.

Regardless if she did look 16. Jesus Christ, This is why I never reported shit that went down with me. This is why most girls I know that have had a sexual assault don't tell the fucking cops.


So mad. So mad. So mad.

Urge to kill.

And I'm a fucking pacifist goddamnit.

"sexually precocious child" ??!!?!!!?

And that's -awful-. Child molesters are the one type of people that just piss me off horribly. GRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!

So, the judge says "You can rape people all you want, as long as they're 16 or older"?

That's what the Judge says.

I wonder how many sexual assaults he's had under his belt. Argh.

And yeah, doesn't that phrase give you the heebie-jeebies?

That makes me ill...
Why do some people/judges always make it the victim's fault?
Throw that guy in for life and throw the judge in with him.

I just want to hurt them... and I am not a violent person, normally, but where a child is concerned.

That child should have been better cared for.

That sentence would be pathetic if the girl had been 28. Will no one ever learn that it is NEVER the victim's fault, the rapist is ALWAYS wrong, no matter what the age of the victim, and ESPECIALLY if the victim is so young.

The girl has obviously had a hard life, living under the care of the government, and now she has basically been told by the government that the rape she suffered was just peachy, and the man only deserved a slap on the wrist.
