In 2012, teacher Donald Barber of British Columbia faced allegations of rape and torture after a female student told police he had been sexually
abusing her for years.
When police explained to the alleged victim that they couldn't press charges against Mr.Barber because there was no evidence to support the heinous
allegations she had made, six weeks later she produced a hand written diary describing rapes, water boarding, being buried alive, etc.
After investigation, it was found that all allegations were taken directly from episodes of Law & Order: SVU. Mr.BArber had all ready been fired, his
spotless reputation ruined, before these facts came to light. Mr. Barber is now suing, as he should.
My rant in this situation lies in the fact that this girls parents or guardians, what have you, had allowed her to watch fictionalize do accounts of
rape, murder, torture, pedophelia, etc. Some might argue that since these things exist in the world, we shouldn't shield our children from them, but
I do not believe fictionalized, dramatized accounts of horrendous acts do justice to victims, or do anything to educate people about justice, or
sexual assault in general.
The child who accused her teacher in this case likely saw the attention afforded to victims of assault, and wrongly assumed she would get the same
level of attention; and, in the influence of man made rape as entertainment, ruined a mans life.
What is the point of this show? It does nothing to showcase what real victims go through.
Also, who are the parents who take their children to an audition for roles on these shows? "It'll be fun, honey, all you have to do is pretend you
were raped by a school teacher!" I can't even imagine.
This is a rant, so excuse any poorly made points. My main idea here is...Who decided that rape Sh ould be entertaining? Ugh.
I hope the girl in this real life case someday comes to realize just what she did to this man; for some reason I doubt she will.
