    Horrible, of course. Fortunately everyone here on realjock is safe from selectively acceptable abuses.

    It is fucked up for sure, there's no excuse to sustain such a lame argument. That said, now let's face it, i guess you've all heard about Nisman's case, almost 6 months since he was found dead and we're still trying to figure out if the crime scene was tampered. And he was a judge, a well known one.
    Sadly, when a case like this one has a "good end", it's only temporary, since the rapist is (wrongly) sent to jail, and is released even earlier because of good conduct.

    Fortunately, this judge lost his position at the University of La Plata as faculty, and his ruling was thrown out and the case is being reevaluated by the Supreme Court.

    Argentina is always so... dichotomous in this regard. I studied law for a semester at the University of Buenos Aires, and some of it you simply wouldn't believe. On the other hand, one of the greatest privileges of my life has been to know, and work "with/for", Luís Moreno Ocampo, an Argentine jurist whose legal mind is not only of the first order but his true passion for justice is more refined (and has been more "tried") than that of any modern U.S. jurist I know.

    Oh for crying out loud man, two problems here:
    1) No-one knows if they're gay until their mid/late teen years.
    2) A 6yrd child. . . that's called petophile, how is that legal?

    This is so infuriating. How does the judge know if the 6 year-old is even gay? This so messed up.
