Lunchtime and I’m catching up on the news and came across the following two articles on the BBC news pages.
In the first, the chairman of UKIP, Scotland is found guilty of calling random women and sexually harassing them. He has been released on bail with sentencing to take place next month.
Bail? Why? Why allow this guy his freedom when he has been found guilty?
Shouldn’t wrong doing not only be punished, but seen to be punished with immediate consequences?
In the second, two professional footballers are found guilty by a judge of raping a drunken woman where she was in no fit state to give the legally required consent to sex.
Scandalously, the woman in question had to take a private civil Rape case to have her two assailants brought to justice. The first of it’s type in Scotland.
I wonder if now that a senior judge has found the men guilty, the Procurator Fiscal, ( the Scottish equivalent of the Crown Prosecution Service ) will reconsider and bring these animals to criminal court for summary justice and some jail time?
No wonder women are fearful of men.
With animals like these they have every right to be.
But what makes men think they can objectify and dehumanise women?
What makes them think that they have any right to treat any women like that, whether they know them or are complete strangers.
As a man, I find these people shameful, no punishment is enough.
But taking a wider view, it seems that male education is needed in what is unacceptable and the consequences need to be made tougher.
Footballers found guilty of Rape in private prosecution.
Former UKIP Chairman admits Sexual Calls
