YES. THIS. THANK YOU. This should be printed and superglued to several (many) people's foreheads until they GET IT. I have been reading so many posts and comments about this case in the past two days and just UGH.
I'm also struggling a bit on how to express sympathy with the victim and express the fact that the trauma she experienced influenced the girl's life in more significant manner than the verdict and sentence will "ruin" the rapists' lives. Because some people are also missing this, although i feel it's so goddamn obvious.
Do you mind if I share this elsewhere? (read: everywhere)
