    Default Judge to woman in rape case: 'Why couldn't you just keep your knees together?'

    A judge in Canada is facing removal from the bench for his conduct when he asked a woman in a rape case why she couldn't "just keep [her] knees together."

    Federal Court Judge Robin Camp is in the midst of a week-long judicial council hearing, which will determine whether he ought to be booted from his position.
    The case in question took place in 2014 when Camp was a provincial court judge. (He became a Federal Judge last year.)

    The 19-year-old woman said she was raped over a bathroom sink during a house party.

    It was during the victim's testimony that Camp asked the question, and subsequently acquitted the accused.

    http://www.vice.com/en_ca/read/keep-...n-on-the-bench


    and now;

    The lawyer for a federal judge who asked a sexual assault complainant why she couldn't keep her knees together says firing Robin Camp would be "the easy thing'' to do.

    In closing submissions Monday, Frank Addario argued removing Camp from the bench would not be the most effective way to correct widespread knowledge gaps around sexual assault.

    Camp had an education problem and not a character problem and has gone to great lengths to learn about the issue, Addario said. Removing Camp would send the wrong message to other judges who seek to improve themselves, he said.

    Good thing we gave him a promotion to a federal court last year. Don't want this sort of knowledge assigned to just a provincial court. Geez.

    So if that judge were to ever go to prison we could simply ask him, "Why did you drop the soap?"

    He claimed it was because he was unfamiliar with the criminal laws? Does he lead such an insulated life that he needs to see basic empathy codified? It's like if someone gets punched, the question isn't "why didn't you just duck" Or if someone got run over by a car..."why didn't you run faster" or "you wouldn't have gotten robbed if you didn't own that stuff in the first place".



    he's a moron....too bad there isn't a criminal code for that.

    Do you remember when Bobby Knight said rape victims should just lay back and enjoy it?

    That explains it right there. In my book club last year we read the novel Disgrace, written by South African author J. M. Coetzee. It is thoroughly depressing, and the actions of one of the female characters who was raped were baffling to us American readers. I did a little research before we met, and it turns out South Africa is basically the rape capitol of the world. Are you ready?

    500,000 women a year are raped in South Africa, and one in four men are rapists. A South African woman is more likely to be raped than finish secondary school. In some areas of South Africa, 8 in 10 men think women are responsible for sexual violence, and 50% of men think "no" actually does mean "yes." Boys rape as young as 10 years old, and many babies are raped by men because they believe sex with a virgin will cure AIDS. Because of this, there are forced virginity checks on many South American women.

    So yeah, this shouldn't be a surprise.

    Might have mentioned it before, but my father in law played ball for Knight and Mike Krzyzewski at Army.

    He said Bobby Knight was the biggest dick he has ever known.

    Maybe he was friends with Sandusky? Its beyond me how these type guys were so successful.
