In light of Lady Gaga’s new music video for “Til It Happens to You”, I would like to remind everyone that a victim does not have to be 100% innocent to be a victim, no matter what the law says. Anyway, victims do not have to argue liability; the rapist is on trial for a crime. The victim is not on trial for a negligence tort. But the law isn’t there to be a moral compass, it’s there to enforce the more extreme cases of ours.
Step it the hell up. Illegally punishing a child and his family like that without even a whiff of actual provocation.
I knew the system was ridiculous, but I thought it was only on the neglect and oversight end. Apparently I’m wrong.
