I keep hearing this term "innocent victims." Does that mean that whatever
happens to "guilty" victims is OK? And who decides the victim's innocense
I remember a story I once read about a woman in Florida who was raped and
the newspaper was trying to rouse the public against the rapist. The story
kept referring to the woman as a "Sundayschool teacher." They never
mentioned what she did the other six days of the week. Maybe it was
something that would have made her look less "innocent."
