Outrage of the Day-Victim Blaming

"A downtown hotel being sued by a woman raped at gunpoint in its parking garage is claiming she was careless, negligent and "failed to exercise due care for her own safety and the safety of her children and proper use of her senses and facilities," according to court documents.

The victim's attorneys also argue the hotel has inadvertently identified her to acquaintances by asking them to testify."

So it's her fault for taking care of her children in a public area, and not the negligient security of the hotel. She was evidently asking for it by buckling her small children in. Then they broach her right to anonymity by bringing in character witnesses (i.e. people who were not present at the crime) to intimidate her.
