A Christchurch "mother" is going off at the Bush Inn Bar for ejecting her 17 yo daughter who was subsequently raped and the alleged rapist has admitted guilt.
What a cluster fuck, pun intended.
Published facts here are:
The "victim" preloaded at home.
She acquired a false/altered ID.
She used that false ID to gain admittance to the last "BOOZE BARN" in the City situated in the heart of scarfy country.
The Tavern refused service and evicted the "victim" for being drunk.
She was abandoned by her"friends" in the Bush Inn carpark, as they then headed off to the Belfast Tavern in search of more "entertainment""
The girl had a sexual encounter with another departing patron, cried rape, and his life is down the toilet in spades.
Now the mother is going off with the equivalent of an AK47 at the Bar staff.
My first impressions in the white heat of the current debate on Liquor control.
Where was the responsible parent when the problem was unfolding prior to the Bar.
Where were her friends as the disaster unfolded.
What were the Bar staff to have done different.
Why were the police not called to deal with a clear case of "drunk and disorderly"
Why was the poor bugger who admitted his guilt not given some skerrick of basic legal advice before he completely ruined his life.
What evidence was gathered as to consent and /or culpability.
Has the "rape victim" been charged with the clear case of using ID fraudulently to gain admittance to the pub.
The guilty here include the Mother,(no mention of the sire), the "friends", and most significantly in my view the transfer of personal responsibility to some other illusory entity than the person who applied the liquor whether by supply or consuming.
So many questions and I will bet heavily that very little will emerge to answer any of my concerns, sadly.
