    You can just hear all the justifications coming out can't you - she was drunk and was asking for it by wearing a short skirt. She slept around a lot. Did she come from the wrong side of town as well?

    Bet it's happened before but if it's one girl's word against several she has no chance of being taken seriously.

    The law officials have no choice but to take her seriously now. The evidence they tried to hide is coming out publicly. There is a peaceful rally being held today in support of her; people are wanting justice for her. Unfortunately, there are those who feel what they did was okay because she reportedly slept around a lot. Still doesn't justify rape in my eyes.

    But morales was already convicted and the conviction was overturned due to an old law that his attorney's apparently dug up. Now he has to be retried with that law in mind, no? What new evidence is there to come out?

    More videos, videos that people thought they deleted. The police are saying the people who witnessed the multiple rapes can't be charged for stupidity in not trying to stop it. Ummm what about obstruction of justice? The police "Accidentally" deleted some of the videos. I'll have to find the video where the kid is filming it and making jokes about it. I never actually made it through the whole video. Quite upsetting.

    Peg, I'm sorry, but I think you are talking about a different case. I read about the one you're referring to earlier today. Very wrong, indeed.

    The law was written at at time when single women had no legal rights except as the chattels or their fathers or as wives. You'd think common sense would come in to it and they would rule the law inapplicable. Is there no mechanism whereby the courts can make case law in a situation like this?

    There are a lot of antique laws that should be ignored, sure i read somewhere that atheists are barred from office in some states.
