Dominique Strauss-Kahn is an accused sexual predator, yet he gets to leave custody to live in a 14 million dollar townhouse (see photo above), which has 7,000 square feet, heated floors, a spa, and most important, daily maid service.
I heard on the news that they chose this location apparently because it can be properly secured. They said it was the only location that had only one entrance. Really? Every apartment I ever lived in in Manhattan only had one entrance/exit.
Why should a person under house arrest get to stay in a place like this? Isn’t the whole point of house arrest that you’re confined and begin to face the things you have done? This is not so much house arrest, but a scaled back version of what he is already accustomed to. In the meanwhile his alleged victim has to be further traumatized by this travesty of justice. And where does she get to live?
When it comes to his trial, I wonder how will they find a jury of his peers? How many have that kind of money? What men are out there that were in amazing positions of power and so callously and violently abused it with their sexual inappropriateness and violence? Hmmm. Well actually I can think of a few. Kobe Bryant and Arnold Schwarzenegger come to mind. Trouble is, they may be tied up in scandals of their own.
