Drunken, Drugged and Unconscious Gang Rape A-OK, Say Local Judge and Jury

Women of Chicago: If you see this piece of human shit, RUN, don’t walk the other way.

Last week, Lauren posted about the young lady who was allegedly gang raped while unconscious by a group of teens, who filmed the entire vile episode. In addition to the sexual assault, she was spit on and epithets were scrawled on her naked body with a marker.

Did you know that two of the accused have been acquitted in the case?

The latest is the acquittal of defendant Adrian Missbrenner, the piece of human shit pictured above, whom had previously jumped bail and fled the country but then returned to stand trial when one of his buddies and fellow defendants was acquitted. One of the defendants remains at large and is believed to be in Belgrade. A fourth pleaded guilty to videotaping the incident and received four months boot camp as a sentence.

Missbrenner then had the unmitigated gall to go on the local Fox News to proclaim:
“I definitely regret that evening because of what happened — this whole thing I went through,” he said.

When (Fox News Chicago’s Walter) Jacobson asked, “You sound like you went through more than this young woman may have gone through?” Missbrenner replied, “I definitely agree with you; she was never raped. Period.”

Asked if he was ready to apologize for what he did, Missbrenner said: “I think everyone did something wrong that night, including her. Everyone was not morally correct.”

With St. Patty’s Day almost upon us, and Spring Break looming for millions of high school and college age kids, what kind of message does this send? That group sex with intoxicated young women is A-OK? Are you fucking kidding me? That this kind of behavior is essentially consequence-free?

Yes, Missbrenner was acquitted, so I can’t refer to him as a rapist. But in my book, he is a rapist, a thug and piece of fucking shit. He is far, far less than a man.

Read the article, and tell me if you are as outraged as I am. Read between the lines for hints that the prosecution may have fucked up strategically by not pressing the date rape drug angle harder and for hints that the fact that the young woman didn’t report the incident for 48 hours was held against her by the jurors.

    I just fucking hurled. He tries to claim he went through more that the girl? Guilty or not, that is a fucking ball-out, assfaced comment. What a fuckwad.

    I have been following this story and cannot believe this is the outcome. You are totally right..this sends completely the wrong message to young teens. For the many unspoken rape victims, this is just another reason why they should not speak up. Totally ridiculous. I cannot believe Fox even gave this young man a voice and that he went so far as to say he went through more than this poor girl. I guess that it is far easier to say when you’ve never been on the receiving end of gang rape. What a bastard.

    Yeah, shame on FOX for giving that asswad any airtime at all.

    However, as repugnant as I find the whole affair, I didn’t sit on that jury. Did you?

    I didn’t *see* the video tape: they did. I didn’t hear the testimony of any of the witnesses: they did. I’m not going to be the guy who second guesses their judgment based on crap I read in the press. (See above re:integrity of the press, it’s an oxymoron.)

    That said, Missbrenner should remember a very important fact: not guilty does not mean innocent.

    Dave!, I hear ya. From reading the articles in the paper however, it seems as though the prosecution blundered:

    – When showing the video to judge and jury, the sound on the tape was turned down. Therefore, the jurors did not hear Missbrenner saying on the tape, during the incident, “”Good drugs are really paying off,” a statement which the victim’s family took to imply that date rape drugs were possibly a factor, or at the very least, to imply that getting the girl good and high was paying dividends.
    – Second, the prosecution did not bring up the date rape drug issue until closing arguments- WAY too late to introduce a new line of prosecutorial attack.
    – Third, the prosecution obviously did not do a good job in correcting the false assumption that a delay in reporting a crime is equivalent to making up a crime.

    “Pieces of human shit” are those who (like Nikkos)take it upon themselves to judge another human being without even considering the truth. I am a REAL date-rape victim, and this bitch is a disgrqace to all women! I really hope you get off by thinking Adrian is a dirty rapist–maybe it will make you feel better about yourself! I saw the tape, the trial, and the effects this had on a young man who made a huge mistake–trouble knocked on his door and he let her in! He definitely suffered more than that broad…actually, she didnt suffer at all until she was humiliated in court! Boo woo woo!

    I’ve been struggling to write a response to your comments, as one is obviously warranted. My first reaction is to come out swinging- to insult you as you have insulted those of us who feel that justice has not been served in this case, and by extension, to insult you in kind for your ugly words against the accuser in this case. However, I realize that to do so will simply cause this thread to degenerate into a hate-filled slugfest, which helps no one. For the record, I do not “get off” on thinking that your friend is a rapist. Based on the information at my disposal, I feel that justice has not been served in this case, and when I wrote the post above I was angry and shocked. I can see that my anger has brought out the beast in you too.

    I understand that you will have strong feelings, as you say, the defendant is your best friend. You are correct that I judged your friend without full access to the evidence presented at trial. Since you were there, perhaps you can help me understand how an unconscious girl can give consent for group sex. Even if consent was granted prior to the sex act, once she lost consciousness it’s a different scenario altogether.

    I am sorry that you too have experienced the horrible brutality of rape. However, I would have guessed that a woman who has experienced the trauma of rape might not refer to another alleged victim as a “whore,” as someone that “didn’t suffer at all,” someone that is a “disgrace to all women.”

    I hope that all involved in this horrible incident can find justice and eventually, peace.

    Did you kow there was a very similar case in Orage County, CA? Unconscious victim, videotaped gang rape, sexual brutality.

    First of all Nikkos, I would like to thank you for your respectful response. If you think you were appauled by my response, you can only imagine how I must feel every day reading what people respond to this entire issue. Welcome to my world! Justice has been served, however, the effects of this case will damage my friend for a long time, which in addition to the jail time and public humiliation, is unfair. She was not unconcious with Adrian–that is what you fail to understand. I just don’t think it is your place to judge him. And by the way, Adrian is doing great now trying to rebuild his life! I hope that all who judge him may one day see for themselves the truth.
