The Kelowna rapist got 5 years. Convicted of raping (pardon me, "sexually assaulting") 9 women, and got 5 lousy years. No dangerous offender designation. 6 months each. For random attacks that will haunt those women for the rest of their lives.
This is NUTS! What in hell is wrong with our justice system?! Oh, that's right, they don't give a shit about women or children. Crimes against us are treated like property crimes.
The crown should have charged him with break and enter too, and maybe gave him a few years for that shit too.
But of course, this is the same judge who gave Tom Ellison, the asshole who raped teenager after teenager, house arrest.
When in hell are we going to start demanding that they lock up rapists?! I do not believe in revenge justice. I do believe in protecting people. Rapists will continue to rape. They need to be kept locked up. Hell, release them after a few years, and put shock collars on them like mean people put on dogs. Leave the house, get a shock that'll knock you out.
And don't give me any shit about how he's going to get raped in prison. I don't want to hear it. I am not a fan of that kind of "justice". Not by a long shot. All that does is make another rape victim and another rapist.
Rape is NEVER okay.
