What is this world coming to?
A 5-year-old was lured into a laundry room, stripped, urinated on, and orally and anally raped. And it was all caught on film.
That should be enough for the community to be outraged. That should carry a sentence of years behind bars.
But that’s not what happened. In the town of Twin Falls, Idaho, three Muslim migrant boys were sentenced to probation. Not for rape, for “sexually lewd conduct”. They will not be going to jail.
Sharia law, everyone. It’s in the courts now.
Janice Kroeger, the senior deputy prosecuting attorney, who was supposed to be trying these boys for their crimes, defended the boys and repeatedly attacked Lacy, the victim’s mother. A therapist for the boys was present, as well as a parole officer and a detective. Everything that was said was designed to portray the perpetrators as victims. Throughout the proceedings, they were repeatedly called victims, and the youngest one was called “the biggest victim of them all.”
The court heard all about how the attackers are doing well in school, and about how smart they are. They were praised for the supposed ordeal they had to go through. It was claimed that all three are suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) from having to go through courtroom proceedings.
After this lovefest, which lasted for five hours in the courtroom, all three boys were sentenced, one after the other. All three were given probation. They were not found guilty of rape, but of sexually lewd conduct.
In the midst of this judicial mugging, every time Lacy’s lawyer tried to speak up, he was silenced. The little victim, Jayla, was never even mentioned once by Kroeger or the judge – or by the police or anyone else. Only Lacy mentioned her, when she made her statement. Lacy detailed how the poor girl is still suffering the effects of this attack: She is wetting the bed and having bad dreams, and more.
Yet when Lacy completed her statement, Kroeger lashed out not at the perpetrators or their parents, but at Lacy. She viciously tongue-lashed Lacy for a full 15 minutes, until finally Judge Borreson had to stop her.
Understandably, the parents of the victim were and are devastated. Back in April, when the attackers initially pleaded guilty, Twin Falls County Prosecutor Grant Loebs said: “I am pleased that we were able to resolve this case in a way that was approved and agreed to by the victim’s family. This continues to be a serious and sad case, but it was resolved properly.”
How could anyone say that? The victim’s family was not happy with the decision and this was far from being properly handled.
But guess what, you won’t be hearing the family say that. You won’t be hearing anyone who was in the courtroom say that, unless it’s in secret. That’s because Judge Borreson barred everyone in attendance from speaking about the case and threatened anyone with serious consequences if they violated his order.
This is unheard of!
Now the victim’s lawyer is facing contempt charges, all because he said the family was unhappy with the outcome.
Mathew Staver, chairman and co-founder of the nonprofit legal assistance agency Liberty Counsel, said the judge is completely out of line.
“It’s unconstitutional for the judge to do that. There are gag orders that can be put on people during a jury trial, or if it’s a minor they can prohibit you from mentioning the name of the minor, but they can’t gag you after the fact. This is public at this point. This judge, it just seems like he’s forgotten about the First Amendment in this case. He has no authority to do this, he can’t hold someone in contempt to keep them from speaking out about their displeasure with the case after the fact.”
This is what’s happening. Officials are willing to look away from horrific crimes, just to make sure the American people don’t see how bad the situation is getting.
Do you want us to turn into Sweden, France, Germany, the U.K.?
Because we are there. It’s only a matter of time before the media can’t ignore it anymore.
