.....my point is that you literally RUSH to believe the survivor in the MU case and literally RUSH to defend every other accused rapist. I just find the dichotomy interesting.

Some folks believe that if it takes years for a report to be made, it's probably not because the vicitm was traumatized, or afraid of a powerful person who took advantage, or suffering from a form of PTSD. It is more likely that the accuser is lying - especially if those defending the alleged offender "like" that person or have some other agenda.

Ipso fatso, none of us should have believed the thousands of victims of abuse by priests. Nor the victims of Bill Cosby, Harvey Weinstein, Michael Jackson and Roger Ailes. Nor the many, many other instances that most of us never hear about because they don't involve major institutions like the Catholic Church or famous people like Peyton Manning.

I mean, how can anybody believe all those lying little boys claiming they were groped by Father Touchadicky? It took them 25 years to say something, so they probably were lying.

RIP Michael Fife.....wrongfully accused of sexual assault (video proved his innocence) but he was beaten to death by her family before the video evidence could exonerate him. 

Van Perry and Greg Counts, falsely accused and served 26 years in prison until 2018.

Etc etc.

1. Hates Buzz Williams. Embraces (and often makes up) things to discredit him.

2. Loves Peyton Manning.

The dichotomy is anything but interesting. It's obvious.

The Central Park 5 ... whom your hero wanted put to death.

We can play this game all day about people who were wrongly charged and imprisoned ... and I'm guessing that the aggrieved white male won't "win."

No system of justice is perfect.

Thank goodness, somebody finally started listening to all of those victims of priest rape.

You mean you don't see the obvious connection between compensation for college athletes, wrongful convictions and pedophile priests?

Who is my hero?  Politics again.  Moderators, how is this not political by MU82.....again?  For the umpteenth time by him?  Good Lord.

More than 50 posts in one day.  It's like he is, I dunno, mentally unbalanced.

Can you imagine how much more "revenue" his "Dept" would produce if he didn't spend half his life posting and reviewing posts on MU Scoop? He is koo koo for Cocoa Puffs.
