Of course, a 10 year old Aborigine child would agree to have sex with a gang of males who range in age from 14-26 and one being a repeat sex offender.
Australian district judge Sarah Bradley failed to jail a group of nine males who admitted to gang-raping a 10 year old girl in an Aboriginal community. According to the judge, the girl “probably agreed”. Instead of jailing them, Bradley handed out suspended sentences and probation orders.
The newly elected prime minister, Kevin Rudd, said he was “appalled and disgusted” by the details of the case while Queensland’s attorney-general, Kerry Shine, said he would appeal the judge’s decision. Indigenous leaders said it sent a terrible message to vulnerable girls and women living in fear in Australia’sÂ communities.
According to a local child protection campaigner, “If this was a white girl in white suburban Brisbane there’s no way the defendants would have walked out of court.”
This article on the BBC news says that the offenders were also aborigines, but that they came from “more prominent” families.
This is yet another story beyond horrendous, unfortunately sex offenders seem to get off too easy but claiming that a 10-year old child “probably agreed” to be traumatized for the rest of her life? The judge is a disgrace and shouldn’t be allowed to ever set foot in a courtroom again.
