Truly an insensitive response from a member of our judicial system. While the legal system is to hold no emotional 'baggage' while hearing any case,
this judge seems to have placed his own emotions into it by stating 'she should have just shut down'.
I fully concur with the comments already posted, but am outraged at the response of the judge and believe that this judge should have to answer for
his statement to the public. Conservative or Liberal matters not here, a crime of rape is a forcible felony upon another human being. It should be
handled in the most serious way as the emotional trauma will last for many years to come for the women it happened to.
Furthermore, the legal system should be mandated to compensate the women for any and all therapy required to assist with her healing the wounds from
this atrocious crime because of the judge's statement.
