Bad Things Happen, Judge Tells Victim

From Think Progress:

Last summer, a drunk Arizona police officer named Robb Gary Evans drove himself to a bar, flashed his badge to avoid paying cover at the door, and then walked up behind a woman, put his hand up her skirt, and ran his fingers over her genitals.

and from Judge Jacqueline Hatch:

Bad things can happen in bars, Hatch told the victim, adding that other people might be more intoxicated than she was. “If you wouldn’t have been there that night, none of this would have happened to you,” Hatch said.

Putting aside the judge's crime against the English language - the lesson for women is simple: If you leave your house, whatever men do to you is your fault.

What???? This is beyond outrageous. And what is it with our gender that women not only do NOT support one another, but purposefully jeopardize, inhibit and behave worse than Neanderthals. "Stand by your man" is taking on a whole new meaning. The right wing is permanently lodged in the 15th century and I have to assume that this jerk Judge is "one of them".
