It's Reassuring To See That Judges Who Blame Victims Aren't Always Getting Away With It

It outraged people everywhere when a judge let a rapist high-school teacher off with a 30-day sentence for raping a freshman student (a student who subsequently killed herself), saying that the victim "looked older than her chronological age." It outraged his bosses, too. They censured him, which is a public and official condemnation of his sentencing, and they also suspended him. While this super-short video may seem a bit uneventful (it is a court proceeding, after all), what it signals for rape culture is important and should be shared.
