TW: Mentions of rape.
Apparently rape is not enough for a man to not be a good man – at least not according to Fourth District Court Judge Thomas Low
“The court had no doubt that Mr. Vallejo is an extraordinarily good man,” Low said just moments before sentencing Keith Vallejo to prison for sexually abusing the two females. “But great men, sometimes do bad things,” Low continued.
According to the article, the Judge said this while at least one of the victims sat in the room.
When feminists talk about rape culture, this is the sort of thing they mean. A man is accused and convicted of raping someone, and the judge still call him an “extraordinarily good man”.
The civil rights group Restore Our Humanity, is going to file a complaint against the judge. Hopefully this will remove the judge from any similar cases in the future.
