If they don't have the capacity to act, then there is nothing to judge except the criminal rapist/s actions.
However ... if they had the capacity to act to prevent what happened and they didn't take those actions, then that is completely irresponsible and uncivilized ... and they are indeed fully at fault for their OWN actions in the CRIME/S that took place.

Didn't you just start a thread about a serial child predator getting out of jail and lamenting on how to protect your children? Think that guy's gonna stop if you say "Pretty please"? In some cases, violence is the answer and who it's directed against.

In arguing against guns on campus that's what this expert says about it:
The premise is that armed students could better protect themselves from aggressors, including sexual abusers. But IU Sexual Assault Services Center counselor Debbie Melloan says a gun might offer less protection against rape than it would seem to.
“Most sexual assaults happen between people who know one another. You’re going to be in a close, kind of private setting…are you going to be willing to shoot the person that is your friend?”
Really? You wont stop a horrible thing from happening to you because your attacker might be a friend? You'll just let yourself be raped to save hurt feelings?
