Ruairi Dougal – a decent person ?

Rape case collapses over consent

A woman got drunk. She felt ill. Her friends asked Ruairi Dougal to take her home. They were entrusting their friend to his safety given his position of authority that night.
The law says he did not rape her. A trial has not said that.

Regardless of the legal outcome, what sort of man abuses trust placed in him by others and also has sex with a woman he must have known he was seriously taking advantage of ? A decent man ? Someone you would be happy to have as a friend ? Someone you would be happy to invite into your home ? Your life ? Your workplace ? He can live behind this legal outcome but nothing can disguise that fact that Ruairi Dougal is lowlife scum.

  1. How dare you compare this guy to lawyers! Even lowlife scum have feelings, you know.

    Kidding aside, it’s stuff like this that makes me think that chemical castration should be an available punishment. I guess since this guy wasn’t held legally responsible, then no punishment is in order. Anyway, this kind of person doesn’t do the sex for the sake of sex, they do it to hold power over someone.

  2. Please bear in mind none of you people know the two involved I do. [Name Removed] the girl involved is renowned at University as a liar and an attention seeker, she has also been labelled by students as mentally unstable!

    She claims that she never knew Ruairi when I can tell you first hand that she would often comment on how good looking he was!

    Remeber she claims that she was terribly drunk, that does not mean she was! ALso you might be interested to know that she had her degree result changed due to her claim and that she has screamed rape b4 and the boy was proven not guilty!

    She is an awful person who has ruined a fine young mans life. I hope she is judged by God and every day she carries the guilt of what she has done!

    Nobody who knows Ruairi believes this to be true and we stand together!

    [I have edited the above comment to remove the name of the girl involved. – Mark]

  3. I think you should all be aware that there is no evidence to suggest that she was unconcious, her evidence stated that she remembered, making pleasurable groans, and that she remembered stopping because she saw someone walk past, admittedly the girl may have been very drunk but I think to say she was unconcious is untrue and unfair. Another reason the case was thrown out was because the girl tried withold other statements she made. It’s quite clear that Ruairi Dougal was the victim of a person who has a lot of issues and is mentally very unstable. He went through a living hell with this case and I think it is only fair that people get clued up before they start judging him. It’s not always as black and white as the papers try and make it out to be.

  4. Im sorry but I have to comment on this to, I knew Ruairi well and there is no way this is true, its no one elses business and hes been found not guilty so please leave it at that. And its true that shes cried rape before.
    The girl involved, it has to be remembered, is a drama student.

  5. To student: It’s a free country last time I checked and I was simply commenting on what I read in the news. I am allowed to reach a decision based on that am I not ? If not, how do YOU decide things ?
    And the fact that the girl was a drama student is TOTALLY irrelevant.
    I am also not adding to the commentary, nor am I censoring or removing any comments. I am also perfectly aware of where this post appears in Google – that is neither my fault nor my problem. I have not said anything wrong in my post. I have not made anything up. I simply commented on what I read in a number of sources. I am perfectly allowed to do so.

  6. and another thing, what happens if youve had a couple of drinks and you meet someone who has also had a drink or two. Is the person who is less drunk taking advantage of the person who is more drunk and how is this measured. Ruairi Dougal never drank, so does this mean he was never allowed to have sex after a night out to? I would like to see how many men would not have had sex with a girl who was more drunk than them.

  7. To student:
    What do you want me to do ? Remove the post ? Put the girl’s name there ? Change what I wrote simply because a few people have popped up and started to tell me how nice Mr Dougal is ?
    And what would the girl’s friends and family have me write ? Would you agree ? No. So she wouldn’t agree with you.
    I read the news and sometimes I comment on it. That is not wrong.

  8. Ok final comment, how would you feel if you were wrongly accused of rape – and your name was all over the papers, and even though you had been found NOT guilty, people still write such nasty horrible things about you when they really have no idea. Im sorry but im sure you would want every single person who knew you to at least stick up for you. This is the only way we can do.

  9. I’ve read this in the paper’s, also know the guy. Just a quick addition – if your opinion is based on what you have read then surely you mustn’t have heard the saying ‘dont believe what you read in the paper’s’. I studied journalism at uni – i know the tricks, the papers MAKE the story into their own. They do it to SELL the paper- not to do JUSTICE. You can not base your opinion on the media.

  11. The girls family won’t know what to think because FACT her own step father is doing four years in prison for sexually assaulting her, that is not slander or vindictive gossiping that is a well known fact, that was going to be used in the trial.

  12. i am a close friend of mr Ruairi Dougal and if every body believes what the news papers says then fair enough, but how far does the average news paper go to get a story to sound that wee bit better than it really is. well in ruairis case they have tried really hard to make him look guilty,but i would trust this guy with my life/house/money,the lad is not guilty,

  13. Guilty or not guilty, it has to be criminally stupid to have sex with a girl who is supposedly well known as, what was it, a liar who previously made false accusations of rape and is ‘labelled by students as mentally unstable’? If all this was common knowledge you’d have thought that would be enough to ring a few warning bells in Mr Security Guard’s head, no? But no, given a chance it’s tackle out in the corridor, waheyhey. In fact, that ‘background information’ doesn’t really make the situation look any better. It’s just an attempt at fogging the evident fact that someone isn’t particularly bright about knowing what not to do with his genitalia. There’s really no way to portray any of this as decent behaviour.

    Temporarily accepting the scenario that these shared IPs here have portrayed, one can’t help but think that if Mr Dougal here doesn’t deserve to be charged with rape, then there should be another name for the crime. Like “Putting his wedding tackle in what he knew perfectly well was harms’ way, based on the confident expectation that he could get away with it because we’re talking about the town bicycle here”? What a nice decent personality the guy must have! What a nasty attitude to sex one must have to accept that, if she’s a slapper, opportunistic sex with her is automatically acceptable and any assertion to the contrary is simply evidence of entrapment!

    Sensible ‘decent’ behaviour in such a situation would be to simply avoid shagging the girl at all. Slagging off her character simply makes Mr Dougal look like an opportunist little git, though being an opportunist git is not in itself currently illegal. I think it reasonable to expect him to take some responsibility for his actions – her character, whatever it may be, does not absolve him in the least.

    I welcome this comment. The guy involved is morally low and by attacking the victims character as some have done on this page in no way should distract from what he did to a very drunk victim. Although rape could not be proved by law I hope he thinks about his character and perhaps his ‘friends’ should question theirs before attacking someone’s character.

  15. I think Ruairi Dougal is someone who needs his head checked. I do not know what to think about the rape case and if he is innocent or not. The fact is he was asked to bring someone home safely and instead i had sex with her. I wonder would any people out there trust this man around there girlfriends. I know I would not that’s for sure. I have seen Ruairi in action and how he treats women and to him they are only on this planet for him to take advantage of and use. He treats them as dirt expects them to fall for him straight away. He should be locked up for a few years for what he did and any woman that goes near him should have the head checked.

  16. secret1 well if u left ur name u wouldn’t be saying that ruairi is one of the nicest people i have ever met and he helps me out when i need it so when u get ur facts straight then write something nic3e he is innocent ok so get that threw ur thick head and wise ur self up and don’t judge a book bye his cover okkkkkkkkkkkkkk

  17. i think that if a man gets drunk and a girl takes him home is that rape if he dosent rember it no its not she was a shit ride this girl has problems. so should i get a girl brethelised before intercorse and if a man doesent drink should he not get the ride what the fuck..i was raped alot of times if that the case i go to bed with a stunner and wake up with a bull and dont rember how i got there ..shoud i take that girl up or should i tell my friends i was with a bull fuck no. any girl at any given time can call rape and rake someones life why would her friend let her walk home with a man that she dident no. because girls will be girls
    no. 1 dont drink so much no. 2 dont dress like sluts no 3. dont say you were raped when you werent no 4. read no .123 and wake up and think about whos life you are about to rake

  18. The girl involved tried to hold back previous statements in court, she in effect lied to the court, she has a history of being mentally unstable, accussed somebody else of rape ( He was found not guilty) had her Dad banged up for sexual assault (against her), her mother wouldn’t even come to court and she has had serious traumatic incidents in her life to deal with. Ruairi never new her at Uni as she swam in different circles but she knew of him as he was so well known around campus as such a genuine and attractive lad. She was not going to get her 2:1, she was mentally scarred and loves attention, all the right ingredients for a girl to scream rape. If you knew this case more in depth you would see that this was a comment to the University counselling staff taken too far, the purpose being to get her grade changed. It’s amazing what you don’t know, please don’t judge this case by what the media have put out there. HE IS INNOCENT FULL STOP.
