Judge Kushner

Standard

Bravo for Judge Kushner.

 

Lindsey Kushner said that women are unwise to get blind drunk in public. This makes them easy prey for the ill-intentioned. Some men will seek out women in a state of inebriation because women who cannot see, speak, walk or reason can easily be raped. Moreover, such females may well forget the whole incident. Even if she knows she has been a victim of such a grave crime this woman might not recall the particulars or be able to give a coherent description of her assailant.

This judge is to be commended for her sound counsel. SOme have slammed her saying she is putting the blame on the victims of crime. This is not so. The onus is on males not to commit this grievous offence. However, it is foolish of women or indeed men to became intoxicated in public because they may then fall victim to crimes of this nature. It is commonsense. The rapist is morally culpable. A drunken victim has been unwise.

 

Being drunk in public is a crime anyway. People are arrested for being drunk and incapable or drunk and disorderly. This learned judge was simply advising people to abide by the law.
