in the library? they must have been quite......
she deserved more money....damn..some ppl burned themself by hot coffee from mc donalds and gets paid millions
When I first saw that, I couldn't stop laughing. I remember when I was intimate with an old girlfriend and she told me she forgot protection. I then showed her the video and said I had my own form of birth control.
My sense of humor is really bad when I satirize things.
She should have got a lot more and the schools representative who made her apologize to the rapist should lose his or her job and be publicly named and shamed or at least be made to pay a share of the compensation from their own pocket.
Injustice like that just makes me cringe..
whilst this will help towards her future, and yes she deserves more. its not about about the monies involved,
What should be happening is that every teacher or school official that ignored and made her write an apology to the rapist should loose their job and banned from any form of profession where they are dealing with children directly or indirectly. its an absolute travesty that she had to endure this not once but twice, and she should have been seen by a doctor to examine her for sexual abuse the first time it was reported.
As for the Rapist, There is no mention of his age, However I have always been of the opinion that there are two crimes that people should be charged as an adult, Rape is one of them. As a Juvenile I believe that (and I could be wrong) but at a certain age he is let out of prison and the record of the crime sealed so it wont affect his future, if this is the case then it is wrong. The victim will have to live with this memory for the rest of her life, why shouldn't the guilty party have it affect the rest of his life too ?
I do feel sorry for the girl, having to go through something like that and have no-one believe you must've been hell.
That said, I don't agree with suing the school. The school itself (Teachers, Pupil, etc...) were not wholly responsible for the lack of commitment to pursue this case, and all this does is take away funding from other students and projects within the school.
Interesting how the main thing everyone is fixating on is the money. So what should be the going rate for getting raped these days?
The school failed multiple times. They breached their legal duty to report all incidents of sexual assault. If they truly believe no assault took place them both parties to consensual sex has to be disciplined. Yet they punished the rape victim for apparently having "public displays of affection" with herself, but did nothing to the rapist. This sort of cover up isn't conducted by people capable of human morality.

However, I don't agree with the school having to pay out, as it takes funding away from other children, and in todays society the first place spending cuts are made are on those with learning disabilities, which typically are the most costly areas of education. In this specific case though, the sum of the payout is fairly low, it should cover therapy, support and provide some form of compensation.
There are some horror stories of pupils pretty much bankrupting schools after being bullied in the playground, it is stories like those I feel that suing schools is excessive and greedy, but in this case where the duties of the school were not upheld, the lack of support from the school to investigate and aid the girl, and the costs she'll need to cover to deal with the situation (She already has difficulties in her life), I feel the payout is fairly balanced.
Their duty is to protect the children under their charge. Leave it to the misogyny apologist to justify an extreme dereliction of duty as "make sense".Protecting themselves and the school make sense
Yes intimidating a rape victim into recanting and then punishing her for having sex, but not the rapist, is just a "slip up". They totally meant to punish both students for the totally consensual sex but they just forgot because they don't want to deal with it!!!!Obviously they (someone affiliated with the school) also made slip ups earlier
Boy rapes girl. School punishes girl for "having sex". Boy gets off scotch free.It has nothing to do with misogyny (as you frequently like to assert)
Maybe you should tell the world to be less misogynistic first.
The guys on the other hand were all permanently expelled, and, while I don't live in the local area anymore, I'm sure none of them found another school so failed to even complete basic education.
My argument is that these people decided (wrongly) it would be better to shaft someone to cover their own asses. It has nothing to do with being misogynist at all.
Stop making everything out to be Everyone vs. Victimized Women (as you do with almost every thread) because thats clearly not the case here.
