Celebrity rapists

THE EDITOR, Sir:

On my way to work on Monday, October 1, 2012, Ilistenedto the radio as a presenter condemnedthe men who raped the eight-year-old girl, twoteenagersand two other women. The presenter then proceededto play a song by Jah Cure, and hailed him.

Further down the road, I bought The Gleaner, where the editorial page cartoon featured the Devil, who was offering eternal terror in Hell toa rapist. Flipping backward to Something Extra, there was a photograph of Jah Cure, who has been missing from the limelight,accordingto the caption.

It seems that some rapists have celebrity status. I wonder what is the status of their VICTIMS.
