Being a Man, I can't understand how anyone would force themselves on another in any condition. I believe it is our duty as human beings to take care and protect one another in public and in private. It is sad to read about the pain and suffering that is caused in such a short time by a selfish, self centered individual. Thank goodness those two Swedish guys came around when they did. Otherwise this would just have been another crime that he got away with in this Evil Guys memory. This type of rudeness and selfishness extends into many peoples everyday lives through simple things like Aggressive Driving on the roads. They feel safe and anonymous, locked in their cars only to steel from someone else. Where does it go from there? What happened to Brock Turner to think that he could do this type of harm to another person. What if it was his mother being treated that way? What would he think then. Anyway, I hope as a society we become kinder and more caring for one another.
