Wait a minute! What did this guy just say? Connecticut Rep. Mike Bocchino (R-Greenwich) comments that if there are no witnesses to a campus sexual assault unless it’s a “really great party.”
This guy has to be out of his mind. I would like to think that when we elect people into certain positions of power and allow them to make educated decisions on our behalf that they are in fact doing so. I would say Mr. Bocchino was completely out of line with his statement in regards to the very serious issue of rape. What really grinds my gears is the almost, childish smug look he has on his face as he speaks those horrible words. Mr. Bocchino is totally downplaying a very serious issue.
“No question that sexual assault is a horrific thing,” Bocchino reportedly said. “No question that date rape things that happen on college campuses are disgusting.”
“Date rape things”? He makes sexual assault sound so blasé.
“Because at the end of the day,” he continued, “there are no witnesses…or at least if there are, it’s a really great party.”
What do you think about this man’s words? Should he be removed from his position?
