Rapist Gets Off: “Victim Too Stupid to Accuse Him”

sumeragi-lee-noriega-gundam-00-breast-grope

A man accused of abducting and indecently assaulting a young woman has had all charges against him dropped after judges ruled that the mentally handicapped woman was too stupid to accuse him of any crimes.

The 60-year-old man, an unemployed resident of Miyagi prefecture, is alleged to have offered a 20-year-old woman a lift in his car, but after driving off with her he is accused of groping and otherwise molesting her.

Charges of indecent assault and kidnapping were filed against him based on the woman’s testimony.

However, judges ordered all charges be dropped, ruling that as the victim was mentally impaired she was not capable of accusing her supposed assailant of the crimes.

Both crimes required the victim, apparently the only witness in the case, to formally accuse the defendant of his wrongdoing. With the victim ruled incapable of accusing her assailant due to being non compos mentis, the case was dismissed.

It would appear the judges concerned have declared open season on the mentally handicapped, not that prosecuting people for serious crimes based solely on the testimony of the insane or mentally retarded is necessarily a good idea…

    Judge and Prosecution have their collective heads up their asses and can't be bothered to pursue a proper investigation or or evaluation of the situation as a *possible* chikan gets away with molesting a mentally-ill woman.

    Well... THIS just made my fucking morning. ><

    well since im in medicine and already had alot of contact with such people.
    I can only say this.

    Since it only involved groping and there is no proof he did that you actualy can't believe a mentaly disabled person to say the truth,even if they did say it,it's impossible to find out what was right or wrong there,since they aren't fully capable of it,though they could be cappable sometimes,but you can't find out such things.

    i still wish they would actualy research if it was rape in some casses where they can actualy show it prove it.Where they can't prove it they can't.They should just let it go then.

    Believing someones word,even if there were 2 people saying something against you is just foolish.
    Those 2 people could always team up against you even if you didn't do that.

    The world needs more hardcore proof to be more just.

    They should only say something is rape if there is SEVERE physical injury to the woman in question. If not, then we have to assume it is only the WOMAN IN QUESTION saying it was rape and might be a case of what I call "Fucker's Remorse".

    Everyone lies, not just females. I really hate this "HURRHURR MEN/WOMEN ARE SCUM" bias going around(from both parties obviously), as I think people should be judged as individuals, but whatever.

    Good lies require a sort of cunning, or a very gullible/stupid audience to believe such a lie. I think that it's really bad reasoning on the judge's part to have just dismissed the case like that without exploring further. I'm sure he might have thought "Oh, she's a crazy retard, this isn't worth my time. CASE DISMISSED". It's disgusting that there are such prejudices in the world, but so-called justice is highly flawed and hardly balanced these days.

    At least the court should have done better in separating the bullshit from the truth, whatever the real case may have been.

    Yet jap judges are happy to throw people in prison for weak, circumstantial evidence-based cases, where the police do nothing but pick up a random foreigner to pin the blame on. Good ol' Japan.

    Well, this is actually a problem with mentally 'deficient' women past a certain degree.... how do you know what is fantasy and what is actually REALITY?

    You usually can't, absent the existence of videotaped evidence. That's true actually in ALL cases of 'sexual assault' and rape.

    Actually, they got the right thing here...... the mentally deficient woman here couldn't realize what was 'forced' and what was 'consensual', so they have to go with the idea that the sexual act is consensual unless there is severe injury to the woman in question.

    If there was severe injury... THEN you could go after this guy, otherwise.... let it drop!

    All i can say is the judge is missing half of his brain. Had he ever thought of the angle the suspect must have abused the mental-state of the victim? As a judge, he should have at least thought of that angle before COMPLETELY dropping off the whole case.

    YET - Roman Polansky just got nabbed after 30 plus in neutral Switzerland for drugging and raping a girl - who has since refuse to press charges.

    looks like someone got their hands on a "Rape Note" - like the Death Note but it rapes the person or brings them to justice.

    That's really fucked up, the raping of a mentally handicapped person as well as the rapist getting off. I personally have an autistic sister (I am assuming the woman doesn't have a SEVERE handicap as she was able to contact authorities.) and I know that if this was to every happen to her I would fight tooth and nail to get the man prosecuted. I've already had two little cousins molested so I know that it's one of the worst feelings in the worlds (The boy who raped them was 16 at the time, they were 10 and 11 so he wasn't prosecuted very harshly since he was a minor)

    16 years old or not, he damn well knew knew it was wrong. I'd have been tempted to turn him into Prince Albert (in a can -- or 55-gallon drum).

    Stuff him in, screw down the lid, slap a hazardous materials sticker on the can, roll it up next to some others. That doesn't un-rape the victim, but it prevents future occurrances.

    We shoot wolves, mountain lions, and other dangerous predators to protect our flocks/herds of sheep, goats, and cows.

    Why would we do any less in regard to human predators?

    And it's not a Prince Albert in a can until it involves genital mutilation.

    READ.

    There were no other witnesses. Regardless of whether that woman was mentally handicapped or not, that guy would still be free of charges. Gotta have at least one witness, other than the victim.

    Well, at least that's how it is in most countries. o.o

    I did READ. Common knowledge of most countries laws tells you that having sex with a person who have a severe handicap, as the girl did, is rape. If they find the mans DNA on her with a rape kit, the man is a rapist. I've studied up on rape laws over the past three or four years because of the incident mentioned above.

    Ever heard of cleaning up?

    True, small traces of evidence can still be found. Yet don't forget that these evidences can also be void due to mentally disabled people being witnesses.

    It's the same as a demented guy being released, free of any criminal charge since he's retarded. The most they could ever do to him is put him in a home for the mentally disabled.

    The only way for that guy to be charged and jailed is to have at least ONE witness, just ONE, other than that mentally disabled woman to have been present and witnessed the whole thing and stepped forward to testify.

    Then again, that witness would also be charged as an accomplice.

    You assume mentally disabled have no sex drive. And as she couldn't accuse the guy or rape, it's not possible to discern if it was volunterly or not.

    Even if she says she didn't like it, that doesn't change anything as there's plenty of normal girls who would feel the same after a normal encounter.

    So if there's no explicit law against sexual interaction with mentally disabled people, then it isn't that surprising that these kinds of ruling would happen.

    The article never mentioned direct vaginal intercourse, only groping.

    Likewise, there were no witnesses, and apparently no concrete evidence, unless you want to be infringe on personal privacy and swab everything for DNA which opens up a can of worms.

    Yet you people feel that a retards single testimonial is truth? I have a feeling this woman isn't the only retard in question.

    Not to mention retards are subhumans who would have been killed off by nature if it wasn't for the amneties civilisation provides.

    Even if we were living in a natural world humans would be social animals (like wolf packs or whatever) so look out for eachother whether retarded or not. Parents have a natural affection for there kids so they'd protect them if we lived in wild ways. I can't imagine why you'd call them subhuman as they're completely human, they just have mental problems just like you (no one has the perfect brain so we're all flawed in a sense) but there's is just worse. Intelligence isn't the only thing that makes a person so don't be a retard yourself and jump to conclusions about insulting people just for being a bit more challenged.

    Don't most social animals leave the weak and disabled to be eaten? The group mentality that social animals have isn't pleasant either.

    non compos mentis is more insane than stupid or retarded.It's actual a blanket term for insanity. Kind of like huddled in a corner betting a doll think it's real. It is the testimony of someone who is delusional.

    Tell that to ANY civilisation prior to 1950, they all abandoned their retards by literally tossing them into the woods.

    Social animals especially kill off the weak, or even the weakening. Monkeys are especially vicious.

    All this is for good reason. If the retard dies, then they cannot breed, and hence spread their degenerative genetics. While nobody is perfect, we are functional enough to survive without assistance and hence should be capable of breeding. It is indeed a monument to the stupidity of modern society to actually take care of dead ends in the genetic pool, valuable resources whilst potentially competent people around the world die of starvation.

    It was only until the Nazis went all out on the eugenics business that everyone started pussyfooting around with the business.
