Rape isn’t freedom of expression


Editor, The Commercial:

You’ve just got to love lawyers. I realize this incident happened in another country, but I wonder how long before the lawyers and federal judges will use the same terminology in this country.

Thirteen men were arrested for the attempted rapes and sexual assaults with knives against several ladies, one as young as 14.

And their lawyer said, and I quote: “their detention is a violation of freedom of expression.”

Since when did rape or sexual assault become an “expression?” An expression of what? Moral decay or vulgar lust!

Go ahead and laugh. You think this couldn’t happen in this country? Our laws already mean nothing to quite a few.
