There's a good reason when spinning out of control in society, it's called a witch hunt.

I know people whose careers were destroyed by accusations of irresponsible young females who discovered a power. Three teachers who were fired because of inappropriate touching allegations that were eventually determined to be false. The girls lied. They didn't like these teachers and used their power with administrators who listened. At the end of the day, NONE of those teachers ever taught again. They were untouchable, even though proved innocent.

Nothing happened to the young females. They weren't expelled, or charged with crimes. They weren't sued, or held accountable in any way. They got away with it scot free. Cracks in the justice system? Gaping holes!

Accusations like what ended those careers can and do become feeding frenzies for attention. They harm real victims of assault, harassment and intimidation with introduction of misplaced doubt.

Along with power comes abuse.

Who knows what the truth is? What we do know is the fight to get to the truth takes a huge toll. At the end of the day, we may be right back where we began, having learned nothing.

        I do not recall that. She went up there for sex, changed her mind after creating a situation. Maybe he pounced on her. Bruises? Females easily bruise. It's her word againt his. Since she failed to be ... more
