Dangerous

Allegation.

Finding, not guilty.

OK, not proven perhaps. But this is dangerous:

Toronto-based lawyer Angela Chaisson, who specializes in sexual assault cases, says complainants often have a difficult time achieving justice in the courts.

She pointed to the case of Jian Ghomeshi, the disgraced Canadian radio host who faced accusations of sexual assault from numerous women – but was acquitted in a controversial 2016 verdict.

“The criminal justice system is in my opinion, a fundamentally flawed way of dealing with sexual assault and domestic violence claims,” she said.

Oh aye?

  1. Yes, poppet, that’s why we had chaperones, to avoid the whole “he said, she said” thing. But feminists are smarter than that, right?

  2. If the guy was found not guilty how can he disgraced?

    So any time a guy gets accused of sexual assault he is disgraced?

  3. The thing about the Jian Ghomeshi case is that the bloke clearly told huge porkies to get laid; and lots of women are regretting having slept with him; but lying isn’t illegal.

    Perhaps we should have a new crime, sex-fraud: the offence of obtaining sexual favours through deceit. Just please don’t make it retrospective!

  4. Women have brought this upon themselves by not sleeping with guys who admit to being just an insignificant cog in the machine. And once you start lying it gets easier…

  5. “The trial was initially expected to only last weeks, but was repeatedly delayed by procedural questions, including a clash over Coleman’s decision to grant media interviews during the trial, despite Doody’s request not to speak publicly about the case.”

    Pardon? Did i just hear that a judge said don’t do this, followed by the accuser doing what the judge told them not to do? So contempt of court then?,,, no? (eyebrow raise) Ok so apparently not, but it must have harmed the prosecution, because they then have to establish that it didn’t predjudice the defence. And if it didn’t prejudice the defence why did the judge say don’t do it?

  6. If accusations of rape are to be considered so serious as to bypass the criminal justice system and assume guilt based only on the accusation…..then can we apply the same rules to accusations of witchcraft?

    We would have to apply the same to murder as a minimum.
    Accused of murder? Off to prison without trial.

    And high treason. Terrorism (commission of and act).
    Anything else we can think of that is worse than rape?

  8. Profoundly stupid woman. If the criminal justice system is a fundamentally flawed way of dealing with sexual assault and domestic violence claims then one can argue it’s a fundamentally flawed way of dealing with any criminal matter. Or any civil matter. What did she used to do for a living?

  9. False characterization. She cites one case.

    ‘complainants often have a difficult time achieving justice in the courts. She pointed to the case of Jian Ghomeshi’

    Whether good or bad, it is bogus to characterize the criminal justice system with one case.

    You may have missed my sarcasm there!
    I was suggesting (in a Pythonesque manner) an immediate riposte to such summary verdicts.
    Witches are made of wood…etc

  11. “the criminal justice system is a fundamentally flawed way of dealing with feelings.”

    Facts and data don’t come into it.

  12. There’s been considerable butt hurt by the left over the Ghomeshi case, he has become a outcast and even associating with him is enough to get people pushed out of positions.
    The fact that he liked rough sex seems a particular issue, but because he asked his partners (that annoying consent thing) first he was according to the left able to get away with violence. There’s lots of lefties that think even consensual violence (whatever floats your boat I suppose) should be outlawed or made very difficult.

    What is wearing make-up and push-up bra’s then? What’s sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander.

    …although under this blue pill feminazi regime probably not because “Reasons…”

    Indeed. BDSM: when does play become illegal violence?

    Will gold digging women be prosecuted for marrying decades older men?

    Coleman: “He lied about being rich”

    Defence: “You only slept with him for his money. Makes you a prostitute, doesn’t it?”
