Blaming a 13 year old girl for being sexually assaulted by one of your employees on your property while your other employees watched and did nothing as he carry her partially clothed unconscious body to a ditch is unforgivable.
What law firm did Northlands hire and how could they possibly think a defence like this would be in their clients interests?
Edmonton Police investigated the case but concluded there wasn’t ‘enough evidence’ to lay charges despite multiple witnesses seeing him and health-care workers finding evidence she was sexually assaulted at the hospital.
Not enough evidence? How the hell does this happen?
(Edmonton Journal) In a statement of claim filed in August with the Court of Queen’s Bench, the woman said a midway employee working at a ticket booth invited her and a friend to meet him after work. After leaving the fair grounds to buy vodka, the man took the girls to a staff-only area on the Northlands grounds where he told a security guard he was bringing the girls to “party,” the claim says.
The woman said she became inebriated drinking vodka in a parked semi-trailer and went to lie down in the back of the semi cab. She remembers the man on top of her and removing her pants.
The claim says employees of both Northlands and the midway saw the man carry the unconscious girl outside and leave her in a ditch on Northlands property. Someone found her at around 3 a.m., partially dressed and without underwear, it said.
She was treated in hospital for alcohol poisoning, where health-care workers found evidence she was sexually assaulted, the claim said.
Here’s a few Tweets from shitty people who defend men who rape children.
How is it the organizations fault? The parents shouldn’t be taking legal action against the business but should probably figure out why they let their 13 year old get wasted with complete strangers— Allison Kirby (@allison_kirby) September 20, 2018
Well the 13 year old was drinking with a stranger. That right there should warn of where the fuck are the parents. She put herself in harms way.— £nigma (@TheEnigmaYT) September 20, 2018
Did she bother suing her parents for not teaching her to not be fuckin moron? Of course sexual assault is not okay...it's horrible! She was 13 and her parents should be held responsible.— TheKevin (@TotallyABotNot) September 20, 2018
Forget ‘victim blaming’, let’s be honest: it is certainly more HER fault than that of Northlands or K-Days. In this day & age, how does she NOT know better than this??— Forsythe (@monsterforsythe) September 20, 2018
You All Had Your Opinion, Now For Mine. I Wouldn’t Call It Blaming The Victim, But How Could You Not Hold The Teen Accountable To Her Actions? Parents Need To Remind Their Children That Their Actions, Can Have Consequences. K-Days Is Right To Call It What It Is, Negligence.— Steven Patrick Renyk (@StevenRenyk) September 20, 2018
