Rape victims must remain sad and miserable forever!

i-has-a-sad.jpgLest you think that lawyers on the other side of the pond are somehow classier than our crop, let barrister Colin McCarraher set the record straight. He was defending a rapist and tried to claim that the man’s 2001 victim can’t really have been that traumatized by the 7-year-old ordeal because — get this — there were photos on her Facebook page where she was smiling.

“What we have is a person who has post traumatic stress but is quite capable of going out and having a good time at a fancy dress party.” And thus, argued McCarraher, the rapist should be given a lighter sentence. The judge saw through this horseshit, thankfully, and gave the rapist a five-and-a-half year sentence. And McCarraher has received a fair amount of criticism for being an utter douchenozzle.
