A more accurate title for this piece would be “Look At This Lying Rapist Scumbag Plead For His Life, The Piece of Shit”. Which is fine, if you state that you condemn him as guilty up front. But you really shouldn’t have such a heavily inflected bias against him if you’re trying to do an analysis of his rhetorical intentions- that means all you’ll accomplish is reading your disgust into his words.
By the way, I don’t have any concretely formed opinions on whether or not the allegations are true. All I’m saying is that this piece is dripping with disdain, and that’s no way to read someone’s testimony. Testimony is supposed to come *before* judgement.
