… when I saw this quote from an article on French reactions to the Strauss-Kahn rape hearing. Eva Joly, described as a “famed former prosecutor-judge”(!), said:
“Americans don’t differentiate between the director of the International Monetary Fund and any other suspect.”
Isn’t that the point?
Meanwhile, the article also says that DSK is doomed, doomed, because:
The idea of equality before the law in America is an “aspiration,” [a Columbia U law prof] said, essentially a myth. Strauss-Kahn is French, rich and white, accused of raping a black woman in a city that is 50 percent minority.
Everybody join in… RAAAAAAACIIIIIIIST! Yep, DSK might as well be a Duke lacrosse player.
Meanwhile, the Spawn offered the following observations:
DSK “looks kind of rape-y.” (Note to the people of France: she said this looking at a pre-arrest image of the guy.) Also, she wants to know how long it will be before this is an episode of Law & Order: SVU.
