Sexual or not I would think ramming an object up my ass would be assault >_>;
Apparently not if you're a guy.
Ladies and Grentlemen:
This generation's law. o_o
Someone should do the same thing to them, see how long it takes until it's considered rape or assault at the very least. It's amazing how much gender seems to matter to some people in this day and age.
Because only women and children get raped, right?
I mean, calling someone lewd comments at work is one thing... but sodomizing someone at work is another thing entirely...
There aren't any sexual harassment laws (or even just plain assault) he can go by? I have no idea what the laws are like in Louisiana...
I'm surprised this isn't national news, I mean this just is flat out ridiculous. I was reading here about dumb politicians but cmon this takes the cake.
@Eos; The title is sorta misleading then. It makes it seems like by law, Louisiana doesn't protect its citizens in certain ways when in fact it's just a couple few that turned a blind eye to it.
If the person in charge of enforcing state law is rejecting an issue, the state is rejecting an issue.
I forgot that the whims of 1 person represents the views of a governing body.
EDIT: Not just a person, mind you.
Wow, oh wow. There are no words.
places never to go to:
oh boy, there's retarded, there's romney retarded, and there's this.
That is absolutely ridiculous. >_>
If that one person has sole discretionary power to refuse to enforce state law it's the state itself that's showing prejudice by allowing it to continue/happen.
If the president declares war on a country that means America is at war with that country, regardless of whether or not the majority of the population agree with it.
When a single pimento with extreme power decides to arbitrarily disregard the law because he doesn't feel it belongs to a certain class of people, or a certain situation, the entirety of the government he represents is culpable. In this case, the state of Louisiana. You may feel otherwise if it makes you feel better, but it doesn't change the fact the victim here is unable to bring his suit against his aggressors by the state, at the whimsy of one man acting on behalf of the state.
This is why the separation of personal beliefs from functional roles is so critically important. His job isn't to enforce just the rules he believes in and agrees with, but because he is doing so the entire state of Louisiana is responsible and complicit because that is on who's behalf he is charged with acting.
I was just lamenting the reality in my 2nd post; I know it's how it works. At least, I realized after your first reply.
EDIT : Oops, I mean 3rd post and 2nd reply! Basically, I'm agreeing with you. @_@.

I'm just now seeing this thread. I am in awe and completely and utterly disgusted. I'm also surprised this has not made national headlines. It really irks me the things that the media finds newsworthy and then lets things like this just fall by the wayside. I sincerely hope that something is done to rectify this action. I hope that poor, poor man finds an excellent lawyer willing to take on his case. I also hope this District Attorney is held accountable for his actions, or lack thereof. This cannot, should not, WILL NOT be tolerated. This is just giving the criminals in this act more power to do as they please once again to another unsuspecting victim. This country seems to be taking steps backward in time instead of moving forward. <sigh>
I was just reading something similar that's happening right now (kinda) in my country:
I always thought you had it better up there but every time something likes this comes up it's impossible for me not to relate it to what's going on here.
It's like your politicians are trying to make a 3rd world country out of the US.
Sounds like the District Attorney needs a metaphorical stick shoved up his ass.
I am boggled that someone can apparently decide that there's no case simply because 'it's not sexual assault if you're a man'. Why is this even a thing? One would think that assault is assault regardless of whether the victim was a pro wrestler or a little granny but I guess common sense isn't too common these days. I also hope someone will step up for this man, no one else should have to go through what he had.
