    Personally, although I don’t agree with the crime and the culprit should be punished rightly so but the victim really doesn’t help himself.

    I don’t have a lot of sympathy for people who put themselves in these situations willingly.

    There’s no real excuse for going cruisng these days given there are more than enough places to meet a guy.

    1. Oh fak off I guess women who wear short skirts are asking for it too

        Actually, in some ways they are.
        People are totally unaware of the sexual drive in men, and although forced attacks cannot be in any way condoned, it is about time people realised that we do not live in a perfect world and one should not tempt providence.

        Nobody’s saying you shouldn’t stick your head in a Lion’s mouth, but don’t say you didn’t understand the risk when it’s jaws snap shut.

      What a load of bollocks – I agree with James(!)

      FOCUS ON THE CRIME HERE – not what youve been programmed over the years to THINK ‘was’ a crime….

      1. The dude took his pants and underwear off in a plubic place. Where I’m from that’s a crime. If you try to by crack from a drugdealer and said drugdealer takes your money and doesn’t give you crack don’t cry about it later, get off the crack.

  2. “There’s no real excuse for going cruisng these days given there are more than enough places to meet a guy.”

    Regardless, there are some married/closet gay men who still think this is their only outlet for their secret desires. Its irrelevant how we judge, its a reality it still happens, and no one invites car jacking on themselves, no more then they invite mugging, rape, or assault.

      Driving a car or walking down a street are legal activities. Hanging around at 1am in bushes trying to purloin sex is not.

  3. Thats like saying a woman deserves to be raped from walking home at night from the pub because there are plenty of taxi’s! A crime has been committed here and whatever the victims choice in his sexual life doesnt mean he deserved or asked to be robbed!

  4. If I drove around the place without wearing a seatbelt and went through my windscreen at 60mph in a crash the blame would rest squarely on my head for not being safe! It’s not rocket science. The same principle applies; do something dangerous but don’t whine when it goes wrong and bites you on the arse.

    1. You’re analogy is flawed. The situation you described does not involve another person committing an act of criminality. The “same principle” doers not apply.

        The analogy is not flawed. What Davey is highlighting is the element of risk.
        If you wish to do certain things, there will always be risks attached. The fact there are dodgy people in this world is a fact we all have to accept, just as much as naturally occurring accidents. It is down to the person whether they are willing to accept such risks. If you don’t go cruising, you will not get mugged, that is the only constant.
