How about a plaque warning young people that binge drinking is reckless. That sound advice is ignored because it’s viewed as blaming the victim, it’s just common sense.

Ignore the most important lesson EVERYONE can take away from this.

Ignore the one single thing, that if you remove it from this story, prevents the crime from ever happening.

Oh, and crucify or block the heretics who might bring up this fact. Call them victim blamers and shout them down.

What steps were taken to facilitate the crime? First and foremost, two kids got blotto drunk.

Know his name. Recently a Stanford student assaulted and seriously injured a Stanford police officer. I guess there are assaults and assaults.
