Can a crime be the victims fault? Can a victim be at fault for a crime committed against them if they failed to take precations to prevent said crime from happening to them? I’d like to present ffour difference scenarios :
Scenario A: A man is at a party. He decides to get drunk. He drinks until he passes out. He is robbed of his wallet and phone while he is passed out.
Scenario B: A rich man creates a profile on a dating site. on it he brags about how money he makes. He receives a messages from woman wishing to enter a relationship with him. he meets the woman and dates her for several weeks. One day he discovers that all his credit cards have been maxed out and some money is missing from his bank account . As it turns out the woman was a gold-digger who ran up his credit cards and stole money from him.
Scenario C) A man regularly cheats on his wife. He also treats her like a doormat.
The wife eventually finds out that the man had been cheating on her . She gets so angry at this news she stabs him to death (or Lorena Bobbits him if you prefer).
Scenario D) A man goes to the bar to get drunk and to pick up women for one night stands.(He gets drunk and has unprotected sex with strangers on a regular basis). He meets a woman at a bar and goes to her place for sex. The woman is HIV-positive and is fully aware of it, but she doesn’t tell him that she is HIV-positive, but she doesn’t say that she’s clean either. The man has unprotected sex with her and ends up being infected with HIV.
Do you think that the victims in my 3 scenarios are at fault/responsible for what happened to them?
do you have sympathy for any of them?
