James H. Landis, the prosecuting attorney from the Yavapai County Prosecutor's office in Arizona made a deal with two sadistic and twisted men who victimized many campers a few months ago in Prescott, Arizona. When questioned about why the deal was made here are just a few juicy tidbits that James had to offer. This is directly quoted from AZCentral.com. You can read the full article here.
"Yavapai County Prosecutor James Landis said his office never considered the "broomings" as sexual in nature. Rather, he described what happened as a form of punishment or discipline. He has said his office could not prove Bennett and Wheeler had any sexual intent."
What is mind blowing is this individual did go to school to become a lawyer and with said higher education, you'd think he would understand that having a broom handle shoved up one's ...em, posterior should and WOULD be considered a sexual violation.
But wait, there's more to this man's ignorance. He really just shut his mouth altogether because now BOTH of his feet are permanently wedged between his gums. He further embarasses himself by stating the following:
"He said the case likely would have been treated differently if the victims were girls or if there was evidence that the defendants were homosexual."
Now I'm not sure about all of you folk, but last I saw, most men who prayed on underaged boys were considered PEDOPHILES, NOT homosexuals...and to throw in the idea that if the victims were girls, it would have been handled differently???? That's such an insult to the victims who actually had the courage to come forward about the abuse they sufferred especially in a society that does minimize male sexual abuse - hm? Like this!
If anyone cares to drop them a line or even a phone call here's where to take it.

I was simply shocked at this man's complete stupidity. It was simply disgusting to know this man, with this"power", made those two bullies a deal for (up to) TWO YEARS after SEXUALLY assaulting (with props) 18 boys.
