Duke Rape Case: Bill O'Reilly's assessment

Media Matters for America highlights several elements of Bill O'Reilly's comments on the Duke lacrosse rape case, but the words that intrigued me was:

Bill O'Reily: "The lacrosse team operated in a loose fashion. The alleged victim had little control over her environment."


Mr. O'Reilly may feel this is her fault, but it highlights how 3 men could do what they are accused of doing.

If they had the attitude that she was bought and paid for, they might feel they had the right to do whatever they wanted to do, including ignoring protests from the merchandise. They may believe that no reasonable person could consider their actions as sexual assault.

One commenter on my blog wrote: "Ya know, sometimes people just get what they deserve, even strippers and those on dates. "

I'll leave it up to others to decide whether this statement was made by a reasonable person.
