Rape is a serious crime. I’d rather be thought a murderer than a rapist.
A Weaverville man was charged with second-degree rape following an incident that police say happened on April 9.
Like murder, though, it’s not the sort of crime one jumps right into. You usually have to work up in stages, abusing people here, destroying things there, until you build up the arrogance to feel that your desire to hurt someone outweighs that persons rights and society’s moral standards.
