    Canada - Judge to rape victim 'Why couldn't you just keep your knees together?'

    This Canadian judge, who is from South Africa is facing removal after making some outrageous statements during a rape trial in 2014. Some of his comments:

    "Why couldn't you just keep your knees together?"
    "Young wom[e]n want to have sex, particularly if they're drunk."
    Camp asked her why she didn't "skew her pelvis" or push her bottom into the sink to avoid penetration.

    He acquitted the guy but it was overturned and he will be retried in November...

    His defence is that he wasn't familiar with Canadian law (???). Yet he was since then, promoted from provincial to federal court!

    And mockery of the system as well. He claims he had minimal knowledge of Canadian law? Then why is he a judge?
    Just my opinion

    Here's a good article about him as well: (So glad the world is watching!) This is outrageous in this day and age.

    Dear Dockins, Brilliant. You have said it all! I just had a chill thinking about this.

    I wholeheartedly agree with you Belle4 !

    Robert Camp has been speaking about a course he is taking which is helping him understand why he is being criticized.

    That right there (he does not understand why he is being criticized) is why he should not be a judge - and never have any authority over anyone anywhere.

    Hoping he gets removed. Disgusting comment says a lot about him just as a man.
    This justice system is so one-sided on so many levels...

    Report published that recommended his removal, he has apparently resigned effective tomorrow.

    I missed this little gem the 1st time - he referred to the rape victim as the "accused" several times and even again in the investigation. It boggles the mind how this man got to be a federal court judge...

    "Court transcripts from the 2014 sexual assault trial show Camp, who was then a provincial court judge, called the complainant, who was homeless and 19 years old at the time of the alleged assault, "the accused" numerous times a mistake he repeated at the judicial council hearing before correcting himself."

    What I have to say about this 'judge' cannot be written on this site.
