What is it with the fluffy language?

“Intimate visual recording”  –  non consensual porn

“Sexual intercourse without consent” – rape.

Is this a result of lawyers trying to dumb down the emotions that come from calling a spade a spade?

Anyway, this is what set this post off

Australian police are warning mobile phone users to take care with social networking apps after two men allegedly used the Tango chat app to blackmail, abduct and rape a woman.

Ajit Pal Singh, 31, was charged with abduction, unlawful confinement, an act of indecency and three counts of sexual intercourse without consent.

Co-defendant Randhir Singh, 20, was charged with abduction, two acts of indecency without consent, two counts of sexual intercourse without consent and unlawfully detaining the woman.


You can do that with an App?

Detective Senior Constable Maguire said police were still investigating who wrote the messages but suspect they became sexual in nature after the woman agreed to meet the man at a shopping centre in Canberra on September 26.

When the woman arrived at 12.15pm she saw three Indian men in a car but did not go to greet them.

One of the men, Randhir Singh, allegedly got out of the car and approached the woman inside the shopping centre.

When she refused to go with him he allegedly told the woman he knew she was married and would show the messages to her husband.

He is also alleged to have correctly identified the high school her child attended and made a threat about the child’s safety and welfare.

So if you don’t use the App, you won’t be stupid and go meet men at a shopping mall?

I don’t at all condone what those men did, but let’s not blame the App, shall we?

“Three counts of sexual intercourse without consent” – he raped her 3 times.  What a champ.

Hope they lose the key to his cell.
