you ask a very simple question. "Why don't you believe these women?".
so here is the simple answer. why should we automatically believe a person making accusations?
i am sorry for answering a question with a question. but it is a very important question that needs to be answered to answer your question. and here
is a bit of a kicker. why should we even be asked to or be involved in believing the accuser? and this is where that argument of the question
"Why don't you believe these women?", that is getting very tiring to hear, is actually a big part of the problem. in fact that very question is at the
tip of creating things like lynch mobs. which in reality is what this whole political farce is. in fact believing the accuser, especially without any
real evidence to support it, is exactly how we ended up with things like the Salem Witch Trials. in fact i can see in the future that this
whole "metoo movement", and "accusation of sexual misconduct" culture we have will be listed right along with similar travesties of justice like the
Salem Witch Trials and the McCarthy hearings. in fact if such situations were dealt with properly, we wouldn't need to have an opinion about
who is telling the truth. since we would have had a proper police investigation into the allegations. and if there is enough evidence of a crime being
committed then passed to a court of law/jury to listen to ALL the evidence and be in a much better position to determine who is telling the truth. and
who is guilty of what. unlike in this currant kangaroo court of public opinion. and one that is not at all based upon any facts. but instead
based upon a person's word, and media reporting and conjecture.
in fact one thing this case piled upon so many cases of false claims of sexual misconduct has shown is that these types of accusations should
be completely disregarded. such public accusations, not only diminish the believability of any other such claims, but actually make actual justice
almost impossible due to the effect of everyone having their minds made up before any investigation by duly appointed law enforcement has even
occurred. i would go so far as to say anyone who makes such a complaint publicly. or even to management of a company, or faculty of a school, should
themselves be criminally charged. and that is regardless of after a full and proper investigation, has caused a court of law to find the accused
guilty. quite frankly if you believe you have been sexually assaulted, then you should bring the matter to the duly appointed law enforcement
officials of the area it happened, so that the alleged crime can be properly investigated. after such an investigation, if there is enough evidence to
support the claim, then the due process of the courts of law take over. and a fair and impartial trial determines the guilt of the accused, and even
the accuser if it is found that they are not being truthful in their claims. it is not at all a public matter. in fact from what everyone keeps
saying about reasons why actual victims do not come forward. things like shame, humiliation, loss of reputation etc. if we in fact enforced what i
have suggested, i have to wonder how many more actual, real victims, would feel safe and better about coming out in the first place. knowing full well
that no one other than law enforcement and those involved in such a trial would know about the situation. at least until the accused has been found
guilty or not guilty. in fact we could even add that such trials be treated as they treat minors in trials, not releasing any information about those
involved so that it does not effect them for the rest of their lives. no taint against a person who has not been found guilty, especially in cases
where the accuser is found guilty of their crime. nor would an actual victim where the accused has been found guilty of crimes suffer such public
disclosure of what happened to them. in this way EVERYONE would be protected. and i suspect more people with actual valid claims would be far
more willing to come forward.
