Quotes

Jason Hollis: I'm sorry. I care about Avery, but my wife's almost forgiven me. I can't take the stand.
Amanda Rollins: I used to be a big fan of yours. I actually won a fortune on you in Game Seven. Bottom of the ninth, two outs, and you hit the walk-off against Mariano and you can't step up for Avery right now?

First of all , I will agree that law enforcement officers agree to uphold the law when they become such & that when the fail to do so, they should be fired & prosecuted for what they did.

But, I wish to disagree with what you said. From my point of view, a rapist should NOT have ANY rights to see the child their action resulted in. Their action is a crime, according to US law, and when you commit a crime, there's a LOT of rights you lose. How would it be right, in your opinion, for someone who committed the crime of rape to have ANY rights towards what that crime ultimately resulted in (birth of a child)? To be honest, I would think that, as a woman, you'd be against rapists having rights towards the human being their actions resulted in.

Not to mention the fact that the juror hung on "legit rape" would NEVER have been an issue in the first place, as they would be been immediately dismissed upon their view (legit rape does not result in pregnancy/a woman would fight back in the case of legit rape) being revealed, nor would the rapist's status as bio-father or his willingness to pay child support have been a factor in a judge allowing ANY sort of visitation rights in real life. Most, if not the majority of, judges would NEVER allow a rapist parental rights towards the child they fathered. Plus, the rape victim was NOT a fugitive, at least not until AFTER she would have fled the country with her kid. And, Det. Benson did NOT break the law, unless she was the one who escorted the woman to whatever airport.

In my opinion, the fact that you have the beliefs you do towards rape, as well as your interpretation of the law, with your status as a cop, makes me hope NO woman EVER deals with you in a rape situation. Oh, and the sad fact is, there ARE people sworn to uphold the law who bend & break it & do not get punished. That is life. Deal with it. You, madam, are a disgrace to both the law profession & women everywhere.
