“This dance itself was a successful event.”

Brutal gang rape? Check.

Beating and robbery? Check.

Degenerate witnesses? Check.

Here’s the spin, courtesy of the school district where the vicious assault occurred:

“Dance was successful event and safe for the students that were there,” said Marin Trujillo, the West Contra Costa Unified School District spokesman. “This dance itself was a successful event.”

Successful? In the words of Inigo Montoya, “You keep using that word. I do not think it means, what you think it means.”

    Well, I’m sure the GANG RAPE was a successful one too, from the point of view of the people who did it …

    By abandoning two women — not just one, but two — while they were slandered, degraded, and humiliated almost exclusively on the basis of their vaginas for the past year, women everywhere have given tacit approval to this.

    I wonder when the majority of them will clue in. My bet is “never.” If they haven’t for the past million years, they ain’t gonna wake up now.

    Well I would hate to see what an unsuccessful dance would have been like.

    wow. I don’t know who is more disgusting, the person with the quote or the reporter who included it in their story.

    This was a truely horrible story and this is just a truely horrible addition to it. It is clear this educator has no idea what a horrible, life altering crime rape is. I wonder how he would feel if it was his daughter or wife……maybe then he wouldn’t have found the event to “successful”.

    As Michelle pointed out, this Marin Trujillo person acted as if he had no concept of how horrific the violation of this girl was. I wonder if his downplaying of the rape is reflective of a more general rape culture on steroids in that community. This goes beyond simple peer pressure, and I expect it wasn’t an isolated incident.
