If a prosititute was raped, do you think she deserves justice?

I have HBO and I've been watching these amazing documenteries. One was about a Sex Crimes unit in Manhattan that help women who have been sexually assaulted, raped, etc. One case was a prositute who was held at gun point in an alley and raped simultaneously by two men. They didn't pay for her, they raped her.

In the end she did get the justice I think she deserved, but I was wondering what everyone else thinks. Do you think a prostitute deserves justice for being raped?

  • Of course she should get justice just because she gets paid for sex doesn't mean when she says no it shouldn't count as rape it makes me sick when some people (not you OP) say hookers and prostitutes are asking to be raped nobody deserves or asks for such a thing no matter how they dress or the job they hold

  • Yes using violenceor the threat of violence is and should be treated as a serious crime.  Criminals target prostitutes because they think they will get away with it easier, and often times they do.  This doesn't make it right.

  • of course! when we start questioning if the victim deserves justice b/c of his/her life style, we go down a VERY dangerous road!

  • i think anyone deserves justice for being raped, no matter what their profession. its a shame that's the turn her life took, but she doesnt deserve to be physically, mentally, and sexually abused because she sells herself to make her living
