The nation is in an outrage over the alleged brutal rape of a 14-year-old girl in a Maryland high school bathroom last week. The alleged terrible attack was covered on Fox News by the host Tucker Carlson when he spoke with the attorney representing one of the two alleged rapists. One of the accused is 17 and the other is 18-year-old Henry Sanchez-Milian, who entered the U.S. illegally and by the very definition, is an illegal immigrant. The immigration status of the 17-year-old attacker, Jose Montano, was not disclosed due to his age.
Carlson acknowledged that both young men deserve a fair trial for the crimes they are accused of, but Carlson became agitated with Moyse when Moyse called the victim’s veracity into question.
“Man, you better be right about this if you’re going to be impugning the character of a 14-year-old girl who says she was raped. Other people said they heard her screams. To impugn her character, you really before God better be sure that you are on the right side of this.”
Moyes became uncomfortable, but responded without emotion, saying, “we have a system here, and when people are accused, we go through the system.”
Carlson was not amused with the answer.
“Have you thought through the moral consequences? I know you play a role and I’m glad [that]defense lawyers exist. But before you say something like that, do you think, ‘Man, I’m kind of putting my soul on the line a little bit?’”
Moyse could say little to save face with Carlson and the interview ended with Carlson baffled with the audacity of the rapist’s defense attorney.
After the attack on the 14-year-old became public Montgomery County Superintendent Dr. Jack Smith began to receive emails from parents and other people in the community, smith accused some of the people emailing him to be “racist” and having “xenophobic” behavior.
Superintendent Smith sent out an email warning those “making threats” that they would be reported to the police:
“While I know this tragic incident has become part of a national political debate, I want to remind community members that the lives of real students have been forever affected. While many have chosen to engage civilly in the conversation, far too many have crossed the line with racist, xenophobic calls and emails.
MCPS is working with law enforcement to identify those who are making threats toward our students and schools. This behavior will not be tolerated in our community.”
Incidentally, a Rockville city council member introduced an ordinance earlier this month to designate Rockville a sanctuary city. Well, looks like they should reconsider that sanctuary city thing. The community is not going to stand for illegal immigrants to run rampant in their city.
