Shame on the above!! Sexual assault is not a joking matter. Unfortunately, the police haven't disclosed all the facts, so you're making the assumption that the "victim" was somehow to blame. At that time in the morning, she was probably under the influence and not in complete control. The taxi driver performed a criminal act if he took advantage of her in any way.

Vicki: Who's making the assumption that the victim was to blame?

vicki, Do you have an answer? It is a serious question. How do they do it? A crime is a crime (unless it was in Barrett's MKE of course. Then it was a misunderstanding.)

By your lack of taste in the comments that were made, it is clear that you are misogynists. How did Barrett come into this discussion? I'm hoping that, when this election is over, you'll crawl back under the rocks that you came out from under. You lack any class.

Vicki: How is Donny's question lacking in class or reflective of a misogynistic attitude? Lyle's comment is the only one that appears to be approaching the threshold of bad taste, yet you seem to be speaking of 'you' in the plural. Again, who exactly is blaming the victim here?
