The one certain prediction that can be made about the government of Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi is he will make another of his stupid and insensitive remarks before the week is over. After a recent series of rape attacks on women in Rome, Berlusconi came up with the solution– place “as many soldiers on the streets as there are pretty girls.” In defense, he argued the comment was simply made to praise the number of pretty girls in Italy. Of course, the idiot prime minister doesn’t know much about the crime of rape. It has nothing to do with the attractiveness of women, and every thing to do with the mental state of the rapist. There is no evidence rapists only single out attractive women.
Berlusconi is now talking about sending up to 30,000 troops onto the streets of Rome to prevent rape. Is it his assumption, the police of Rome for the indefinite future will be supported by thousands of troops? Rape is an act of violence, not an act deriving from seeking sex with an attractive woman. Perhaps, it is time to send Mr. Berlusconi to a psychiatrist and have him obtain information concerning rapists.
