Too much of "justice" now depends upon who you are.If you
are a Weinstein or trump, or own a football team, you'll probably be okay
because you can afford good lawyers.
Anybody can make any accusation against any person at anytime...scary isn't
The sad lesson for smart men is do not talk to women, do not socialize with
women, do not mentor women, do not be alone with women and don't have any
friendship with a woman. It is not worth a destroying your life. I used to
criticize my oldest son for not dating, but I am beginning to see it is probably
an act of wisdom and self preservation. The women's movement deserves a lot
of the blame. There is a growing population of men addressing this new dynamic.
Check out MGTOW.
False accusations of all kinds are terrible. I can only imagine how difficult
his life was. There were hundreds of people got caught up in the Russian
collusion investigations, some lost millions in legal fees. Mueller concluded
there were no Russian collusion. Like Ace in this story, how are these people
going to recover from such injustice?
It seems little more than a rumor and a smartphone is all that is necessary for
this kind of thing to happen now. The rise of smartphones and their almost
universal ownership is well known but poorly understood. I believe we in general
underestimate what is possible with nothing but a very average smartphone and
one person with something bad to say, however true or not it may be. The
proliferation of information or misinformation or disinformation by almost
anyone is now possible to an extent unheard of only 10 years ago.The
technology we all hold now is capable of good but also many terrible things, and
I don’t think most of us grasp this well enough. It used to be much harder
to transmit any message you wanted to tens of thousands of people in a few days
or less. Now it happens all the time.The only solution I can think
of now is for as many of us as possible to realize what can happen with one text
message, especially if sent to all in one’s “address book.” It
can and often does spread exponentially, given that all recipients can and often
do send it to easily thousands of other people after a single and very average
person sends one mass text with one ugly thing to say.
It’s good when the justice system in this nation works to protect the
innocent and prosecute the perps.Unfortunately, sometimes the innocent are
unjustly charged as is apparent here. In these cases, those who made the
decision to hold and prosecute without clear and inconclusive evidence will have
to be held accountable and potentially pay a high price for their actions.
Sue everyone. And the school district really needs to rehire him. I understand
why he was let go, but now let’s move forward.
There should be no immunity from suit for this sort of evil.
We are in such a difficult moment. Bad men have for way too long been allowed to
harass and even assault women almost with impunity. We need to fix that. As we
try to fix that, some women will weaponize this moment. This leads to less
belief for those who have actually been assaulted. Before anyone cites pre-Me
Too statistics, I think the incidence of false reporting has increased due to
the increased tendency of all of us to want to believe the women who are coming
forward. In my own line of work, I have been privy to three harassment charges
agains male subordinates. In one case, the results of the investigation found no
evidence that the woman had been harassed. In the second case, the investigation
found that the woman was likely using the charges to get back at a colleague she
did not like. In the third case, the evidence was clear that the accuser was the
one actually harassing her male employee. And, yes, all three of these
investigations were run by well-trained, professional women. We need to stop
male harassment and assault of women. It is terrible and cannot be tolerated.
False reporting is making it more difficult and ruining lives as well.
Let's hope he becomes a millionaire.
