Is six months long enough?

March 22, 2007

A guy’s making some progress with a woman at a bar.  She goes to the restroom and he puts white powder in her beer.  The waitress sees him do it.  He’s obviously dropping a date-rape drug and after he’s nailed, the judge gives him a year, of which he only serves six months.  Read the whole incredible story.

    I’m not sure which is more incredible, the sheer stupidity and audacity of this guy, or that the judge lopped 6 months off! Probably every girl he’s dated in the past five years is going to have some interesting questions for him!

    What pisses me off is that the prosecutor took a plea from this asshole.  6 months in prison would certainly be no walk in the park, but those whom rape others are lower than any life form in my book, and deserve the worst of any form of justice.

    What makes me mad is that if he’d gotten away with it, he probably wouldn’t have been convicted at all.

    I agree with Terry that if the waitress hadn’t caught him, the odds are he would have gotten away with raping his “friend”.  I also wonder how many times that guy has done this sort of thing before he got caught?

    As recently as 2000, the World Health Organization ranked the U.S. as leading the Western world in virtually every category of sexual problem, including rape.  Given those dismal figures, treating date rape so lightly is more than a little problematic.
