Justice for Some, Not for All

Fury as rapists of Aboriginal girl, 10, go free - Telegraph Can you see any racial prejudice in this story?
The judge said the victim "probably agreed" to have sex with the men, who were from Aurukun, a violence-plagued Aboriginal community on the Cape York peninsula of Queensland.
As if a 10-year-old girl could agree - legally - to such a thing.

That judge - Justice Sarah Bradley - is second only to the monsters that perpetrated the original crime. These monsters got a slap on the wrist - barely that. What lesson do you think they will learn? That raping young, black girls carries no penalty?
