Judge Asks Rape Victim Why She Couldn’t Keep Her Knees Together, Now He’s…

Judge Robin Camp, who has now been elevated to a federal court position in Canada, is a supreme asshat misogynist jerk. In 2014, a 19 year-old girl was raped. He asked her why she couldn’t just ‘keep her knees together’, as if that would have stopped her from being raped. He referred to her as the ‘accused’. Obviously, he blamed the victim here and he did indeed acquit her rapist. The case is now being retried in Canada and this judge is being brought up for review. He may be removed from the bench and he should be. WTH Canada?

After he came up for review, Camp apologized – sort of: “My concept of what I did wrong has grown. I’m very sorry that, on reflection and rereading what I said, that I intimidated her, using facetious words.” Seriously? Your words weren’t the only awful things you did that day… you let her attacker walk free. He went on before the Canadian Judicial Council: “I can’t guarantee that I’m not prejudiced in other areas … I have learned to be constantly vigilant against it. I’m a lot better than I was. I’ll always be vigilant. Perfect, I’ll never be.” ‘Perfection’ is not the issue here… your actions as a judge and the law are. You failed at both.

From Perez Hilton:

A Canadian federal judge has finally apologized two years after making a horrible comment to a rape victim during a trial — but now he’s in some VERY serious trouble over it.

Robin Camp initially made international headlines back in 2014 during the trial itself, a case that centered on a 19-year-old woman accusing a Calgary man of raping her during a house party.

At times during that trial, according to media reports, Camp referred to the woman as “the accused,” which is… weird… and he also said this to her, which is downright horrifying:

“Why couldn’t you just keep your knees together? Why didn’t you just sink your bottom down into the basin so he couldn’t penetrate you?”

The judge’s own daughter was raped, if you can believe it. She’s disappointed in her father to say the least.

Camp also said during the trial that young women “want to have sex, particularly if they are drunk,” and “some sex and pain sometimes go together.” Do tell judge… this sounds like projection to me. It would be interesting to find out exactly what his sexual preferences are.

He admitted he held a prejudice towards the erroneous notion that “all women behave the same way and should resist.” His words ring very hollow here. This judge should definitely be removed from the bench. Justice walked in that case, let’s hope it is done in the girl’s appeal.
