While I was student teaching at an elementary school in Charleswood, they brought in Danny Smyth (WPG Police Chief) to speak to the kids. When he asked what kind of crimes the kids thought they prevented, a girl said “rape”. Smyth took this opportunity to spout his victim-blaming perspective to a large group of kids who were K-8 students. I was disgusted with Smyth’s rape apologist, victim-blaming garbage, and the fact that this was said in front of children is reprehensible.
