  1. Accountability is the order of the day. The victim was I feel set up by bringing up her being a prostitute. But NOT his sex perversion. The perpetrator MUST have his life scrutinized before labeling the victim. Lets get our priorities right and slam these men with the full extent of the Law.

  2. I believe all to often that the women whom are victims of sexual abuse/assault never or very seldom get justice in the courts of Alberta. The defence mouth pieces are allowed to badger the victims on the stand and they use the rape shield law brought in by the Federal P.C’s.
    Numerous victims that i personally have dealt with are genuinely afraid and scared of the legal system the way it is set up.

  3. I think its very fair, men need to be accountable, not fair in anyway to harm someone….look at the size difference of the two come on now..
