FixedIt: Women are not responsible for men choosing to commit crimes

Really?

19 counts of fraud, four counts of enter premises to commit an indictable offence, six counts of receiving tainted property and a single count of possessing dangerous drugs.

But he’s not responsible for any of these crimes, it’s all his girlfriend’s fault. Because she was allegedly cheating on him.

His lawyer might have been trying it on as a last ditch attempt to garner sympathy from the Magistrate but what is the Sunshine Coast Daily’s excuse for buying into this?

FixedIt is an ongoing project to push back against the media’s constant erasure of violent men and blaming of innocent victims. If you would like to help fund it – even $5 a month makes a big difference – please consider becoming a Patron
