The lad has maintained it was consensual, the girl said - basically - that she was too drunk to remember. The case is going to review.
Getting a girl insensible and taking advantage of her is rape. Young men, men of all ages and backgrounds may not know this. However, what can young men do to protect themselves? How do they measure if a girl is insensible at the time of consensus - Not waking up the next day. These are I suppose common sense decisions on the one hand or when it comes to it a jury and judge.
People say that the difference is in admitting that the person has done wrong, not that he has done the time in prison.
150,000 people have signed a petition, several - I think 3 people have cut ties with the club, 3 sponsors have made known their disapprobation.
60m odd have not signed a petition, the club still has a board and staff, they have other sponsors who trust the club.
Why punish someone with prison and continue to punish them on release? Will he be a continued danger in the workplace? Does no-one deserve a second chance?
