As we are all well aware, FOX News serves as a dumping ground for the world’s absolute worst people. FOX host Shep Smith was joined by defense attorney Joseph DiBenedetto to discuss the Maryville rape case that has drawn the attention of the world–and Anonymous.
Fourteen year-old Daisy Coleman and her thirteen-year-old friend snuck out in the middle of the night, were supplied with alcohol, and were both raped at a party. Daisy, unable to stand, was unceremoniously dumped in freezing weather in front of her house. Charges were filed against Matt Barnett, grandson of a politician, but were dropped months later. Barnett had admitted to a sexual encounter, and there was a video, AND there were five witnesses, AND a rape kit was done…but since the video somehow disappeared, it was decided that there was simply not enough evidence…what, with the multiple witnesses and the admission and all.
DiBenedetto had his own theories to offer on the case.
“There’s no denying that from the surface it appears to be some sort of cover-up. But when you look at the finer details, there are telltale signs of this girl actually lying. She is leaving her home at 1 in the morning, and nobody forced her to drink And what happens? She gets caught by her mom, she’s embarrassed and the easy way out here is, ‘Mom, someone took advantage of me’.”
See? She just didn’t want to get caught! It’s that simple! The physical evidence that she had been raped is meaningless! And after all, what young teenager sneaks out at 1 am? I know I never did such a thing! Oh, and she decided to experiment with alcohol like 78% of United States teens? She must be awful!
After all, as a girl, What did she expect to happen?
Yes, she should have expected someone to give her much more alcohol than any person should consume, use her against her will, and then dump her in the cold. After all, as a male, that’s a possibility I always consider. It’s O.K. though–he is not saying she deserved to be raped! He even says so. See? I’ll even put it in quotes:
“I’m not saying she deserved to be raped…but“
Oh…there’s a “but.” OK, Mr. DiBenedetto, You’ve said she’s to blame because she, like every teenager in the world, decided to sneak out. You’ve said that she is to blame because she drank too much. You’ve accused her of lying. You brought all of this together to theorize that Daisy, the extremely young girl who was excited that an older football player took interest in her and (like most kids) did something stupid, is to blame because she should have expected to be brutally used and discarded by some arsehole jock. Sounds kind of dickish, but let’s hear it. Bring it home, baby!
Watch this gigantic d**che attempt to justify his position:
