People like this make me really want to break things:
Elected officials should know better than to blame the victim of a sex crime.
While it’s a common tactic of abusers, it’s something no one expected of Republican Florida state Rep. Kathleen Passidomo.
During debate over a bill that would legislate a dress code for Florida students, Passidomo blamed the alleged gang raping of an 11-year-old in Cleveland, Texas on the way the young girl was dressed.
“There was an article about an 11 year old girl who was gangraped in Texas by 18 young men because she was dressed like a 21-year-old prostitute,” Passidomo declared.
“And her parents let her attend school like that. And I think it’s incumbent upon us to create some areas where students can be safe in school and show up in proper attire so what happened in Texas doesn’t happen to our students,” she added.
I don’t care if the girl was walking around totally nude, what happened to her was rape, was uncalled for and the animals that did this need to punished to the fullest extent. And if you don’t believe that, then ask yourself this question; can you rape a prostitute? This is a question asked in numerous police training courses, and the answer is always yes!
