AIBU to believe raping 100 women is worth more than nine years in jail?

Nah, the sooner we realise that women are expendable the sooner we get back in our box.

disgusting.

OldEnglishSheepDog Thu 04-Jan-18 16:30:30

I saw this and assumed I'd misread it. I supposed the powers that be have realised that all of his victims were begging for it. (Sarcasm)

How utterly depressing.

Unbelievable, and yet, sadly, not surprising at all. Yet another demonstration that our lives as women are expendible.

shit isn't it?

IrkThePurist Thu 04-Jan-18 16:31:42

I do not fucking believe it angry

WillowWept Thu 04-Jan-18 16:32:02

I'm horrified.

A man who has raped and assaulted 100+ men would never be released. I really believe there is a view that women just don't matter.

BarbarianMum Thu 04-Jan-18 16:32:57

Don't worry, he was released on the say so of the parole board. That means he must have seen the error of his ways, pose no substantial risk to men society and be very, very sorry. hmm

Gingernaut Thu 04-Jan-18 16:33:08

Well, let's face it. If a man convicted of killing two women was let out to kill a third, then someone who lets his victims live is unlucky if he gets jail time at all......

I’m so angry. How can it be safe to release this man? 100 rapes, 100 women’s lives severely affected plus those of their partners,children,families and friends. Women obviously don’t matter at all to the criminal justice system.

After reading about Theodore Johnson earlier in the week nothing surprises me when it comes to violence against women.

Lambside Thu 04-Jan-18 16:34:47

Having had a quick read of google results I'd say there is every chance that he still represents a threat to women.
.Disgusting specimen.
.Example of worse than useless policing.

ThymeLord Thu 04-Jan-18 16:34:54

You beat me to it Gingernaut. I was going to say the same.

Rebeccaslicker Thu 04-Jan-18 16:35:11

Twitter is exploding with sensible comments.

Shame nobody will take them into account.

Urgh, vile specimen.

Marylou2 Thu 04-Jan-18 16:37:03

If you’re a Daily Mail journalist trawling through Mumsnet looking for a thread to reprint as news. Try this one! Use your influence and circulation to get this travesty of a decision overturned.

About a month per woman. Disgusting.

LanaKanesLeftNippleTassle Thu 04-Jan-18 16:38:27

On what fucking cunting shithole of a planet is this fucking ok??!! angryangry

Are we really worth so fucking little?!

As if I needed any more confirmation that women are lesser.

So we should just put up and shut up when we get raped, or must have been asking for it, or lying about it....despite men like this raping time and time again and basically fucking getting away with it.

I am so so fucking angry at the cuntweasels who think this is ok.

efeslight Thu 04-Jan-18 16:42:04

I am also sickened by this.

BumpowderSneezeonAndSnot Thu 04-Jan-18 16:42:11

It's disgusting. Someone local to me was told they would get 7 years as a conservative estimate for repeated episodes of sexual assault (groping) of women got 2 served 3 months.

BumpowderSneezeonAndSnot Thu 04-Jan-18 16:43:32

lambside This isn't a policing issue. They did their job by catching him and gathering evidence. This is a criminal justice issue.

CraftyGin Thu 04-Jan-18 16:44:43

I thought he was convicted of sexual assault of 19 women.

The rage should be targeted at the original tariff, not that he has been released 2 years after this.

horatioisabrick Thu 04-Jan-18 16:44:50

Ah, someone already posted a link to Theodore Johnson's case.

It's absolutely disgusting and I personally do see this as sign about the value of woman's life and sexual integrity...

It makes me so mad and worried for my DDs.

This is unreal.
