October 3 is Wrongful Convictions Day. One of the most recent exonerees is Joshua Horner of Redmond, Oregon: https://www.law.umich.edu/special/exoneration/Pages/casedetail.aspx?caseid=5375 . After a contested child custody decision, Horner’s ex-wife accused him of sexually abusing his daughter. He was handed a 50-year prison sentence.On September 10, 2018, Joshua Horner was exonerated of all charges.A Stain on JusticeAccording to the National Registry of Exonerations, 2,271 persons are known to have been wrongfully convicted. These persons spent 20,080 years behind bars for a crime they did not commit, and sometimes never occurred.Every wrongful conviction is a stain on the American ideal of “liberty and justice for all.” So how do we bring an end to wrongful convictions?Victim CultureThe cause of our national epidemic of wrongful convictions is an ever-expanding Victim Culture. Over the past three decades, proponents of Victim Culture have: Expanded definitions of offenses. For example, the definition of rape has been enlarged in recent years from forceful penetration to “non-consensual” penetration. Reduced due process protections. Now, campus “Kangaroo Courts” regularly dispense with impartial investigations and cross examinations. Created incentives to accuse. Persons who simply claim to be a “victim” of domestic violence are now entitled to free legal help, transitional housing, priority treatment by immigration authorities, and more. Eliminated punishments for false accusers. Persons who commit perjury or make false police reports are routinely let off the hook. Remember what happened to Crystal Mangum, false accuser in the Duke lacrosse case?Victim Culture harms the credibility of real victims, devastates the wrongfully accused, and wastes millions in taxpayer-funded criminal justice services.Victim Culture is overwhelming legal precepts such as the presumption of innocence and fundamental fairness. Eventually, Victim Culture promotes a class of persons who are “victims” of poorly defined “crimes” that can never be refuted. That harms all of us.

Did everyone forget the Kobe Bryant faux rape case in Colorado where after the so-called victim got a payoff of a few million dollars, she stopped her 'search for justice'?
Rin saysDid everyone forget the Kobe Bryant faux rape case in Colorado where after the so-called victim got a payoff of a few million dollars, she stopped her 'search for justice'?I'm a huge Lakers fan. Let's be honest, Kobe did fuck her. He fucked her good, but it wasn't rape. Kobe at that time didn't need to rape anyone to get his rocks off. The woman turned it into "rape" to get paid, plain and simple. I take the Mike Pence approach. I don't hang out with any woman alone besides my wife. Hasn't failed me in over a decade.
All fun until Christine Ford and says you raped her back in preK, puts on some tears, and Democrats all fall in front of her.

39 The Ishmaelites took Joseph to Egypt and sold him to Potiphar, the king’s[a] official in charge of the palace guard. 2-3 So Joseph lived in the home of Potiphar, his Egyptian owner.Soon Potiphar realized that the Lord was helping Joseph to be successful in whatever he did. 4 Potiphar liked Joseph and made him his personal assistant, putting him in charge of his house and all of his property. 5 Because of Joseph, the Lord began to bless Potiphar’s family and fields. 6 Potiphar left everything up to Joseph, and with Joseph there, the only decision he had to make was what he wanted to eat.Joseph was well-built and handsome, 7 and Potiphar’s wife soon noticed him. She asked him to make love to her, 8 but he refused and said, “My master isn’t worried about anything in his house, because he has placed me in charge of everything he owns. 9 No one in my master’s house is more important than I am. The only thing he hasn’t given me is you, and that’s because you are his wife. I won’t sin against God by doing such a terrible thing as this.” 10 She kept begging Joseph day after day, but he refused to do what she wanted or even to go near her.11 One day, Joseph went to Potiphar’s house to do his work, and none of the other servants were there. 12 Potiphar’s wife grabbed hold of his coat and said, “Make love to me!” Joseph ran out of the house, leaving her hanging onto his coat.13 When this happened, 14 she called in her servants and said, “Look! This Hebrew has come just to make fools of us. He tried to rape me, but I screamed for help. 15 And when he heard me scream, he ran out of the house, leaving his coat with me.”16 Potiphar’s wife kept Joseph’s coat until her husband came home. 17 Then she said, “That Hebrew slave of yours tried to rape me! 18 But when I screamed for help, he left his coat and ran out of the house.”19 Potiphar became very angry 20 and threw Joseph in the same prison where the king’s prisoners were kept.

That's because you aren't rich and famous...These "victims" now would say that you and your spouse raped her and would be believed.
