The court of village opinion is with the man, what a surprise. Thank god for that judge.

Yes, the judge sounds like he was very sensible, and was suitably disgusted at the man's attempt to weasel out of it too ("No, I just found her there". Yeah, right.).

Not even "her".
More like "yer wan".

Well, then, I hope that that is the last time any human being touches him, ever, except perhaps for strip searching.

I heard that one one the radio, including the parish priest being interviewed. Way to go with the condoning rape and subsequent social ostracism of the rape victim, Father.

[livejournal.com profile] lazy_hoor just quoted a bit from said PP saying that it was just "an alleged assault", although the jury convicted him. Er, Father, he was convicted. That is what convicted means. Pillock.

Well, everyone knows women lie about these things. Even if a jury and a judge have been taken in, that doesn't mean anything.

The interview conducted subsequently with the fiancee of the convict is nothing short of mind-boggling.

She tells that she made a pact with herself before the trial started that if there was so much as one item of evidence which convinced her that he was guilty, she would leave him - but she says that did not happen.

So the bit where he appeared on CCTV carrying the woman that he "just found there when he went for a slash" towards the skip didn't, perhaps, indicate to her that something was up?

Wait, what? He was seen carrying this poor woman to dump her at the skip? And his fiancee is still claiming his innocence and men lined up to shake his hand? JESUS CHRIST WHAT IS WRONG WITH THESE PEOPLE?

ETA: My God, somehow I missed that detail the first time I read the article. Bastard.

To gauchely reply to myself: this article sounds like it's suggesting he drugged her, too.

Eurgh, it does, doesn't it?

Of course. And she doesn't even feel a bit guilty over taking a nice man like that to court, the jezebel.

I vote we all go to Listowel and kick people.

Could we make some sort of thing where we send her a hundred thousand signatures saying that we think she's brilliant?

Stories like this make me want to say "fuck Ireland" and emigrate, never to return.

Ditto, except I suspect this kind of lovely attitude is alive and well in plenty of communities elsewhere too.

The important thing is that we stay in the cities. We had the right idea with having walls around them.
