Sick and fucking sad that he did it the first time but how in the hell did he not have the common fucking sense not to do the shit again? I seriously can not comprehend the levels of dumb and entitled you would have to be to feel you can get away with this shit. The first time it happened must have just been the first time on record cause this dude does not care one iota about consent.

Also how in the hell can another woman not only be ok with this happening to another woman, but go so far as to threaten the victim in order to protect the 2 rapists? I want to hit that bitch with a bat.
