Not all men are evil

Re: A Flash of Violence, June 2-8

I enjoyed your article “A Flash of Violence” but I must take exception with the analysis provided by UVic law professor Rebecca Johnson. Miss Johnson seems to blame the collective behaviours of men for the actions of this lone pervert. What a hateful thing to say, and print no less. Are Muslims around the world collectively responsible for 9-11? Or perhaps mothers bare collective responsibility every time one of them drowns a baby in a bathtub. To target any group, and try and hold them responsible for the actions of a depraved individual is to engage in hate mongering.

As an aside, let me tell you that all the men that I know are shocked and disgusted by this pervert, and if any of them ever caught him, they would not be slapping him on the back, with talk of “boys being boys” I can assure you.
