Me judging them is not a problem at all!
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.
'They' become a criminal also, in the moment they choose to not act, when they have a DUTY OF CARE, to themselves and society at large, to take
action to prevent crime and bring criminals to justice.
There is no escaping this logic as far as I can see as this is what it takes to be a CITIZEN and not just a civilian.
Personal Disclosure: I thank you kindly for answering my very harsh question. Very Commendable!
