  • Outrage as Cook County judge grants $400 cash bail to suspect charged with raping a disabled woman

    11/13/2018 12:07:58 PM PST · by detective · 16 replies
    Illinois last year enacted a Bail Reform Law intended to make bail affordable for poor people. Kim Geiger of the Chicago Tribune explained at the time of passage: …the new law creates new rights for people in custody at Illinois jails and aims to move away from requiring people charged with relatively minor crimes to post cash bail as a condition of their release. The legislation reflects a general consensus among criminal justice advocates, Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart, and Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx that the state's cash bail system is unfair to poor people. Under the previous...

    The Supreme Court spent a gruesome hour Tuesday debating a constitutional way to execute a Missouri man who has a rare medical condition, with the likely decider, new justice Brett M. Kavanaugh, joining the court’s liberals with tough questions for the state. Modern and ancient execution methods — a firing squad, electrocution, hanging, lethal gas, being burned at the stake — all made appearances during the court’s sober assessment of ways to kill Russell Bucklew without violating the Constitution’s ban on cruel and unusual punishment. Missouri plans to use an injection of a single drug, pentobarbital, to carry out the...
  • Education Department's draft rules to allow cross-examination of accusers in sexual assault cases

    The Department of Education is looking to impose new federal guidelines that would require schools to allow the cross-examination of accusers in sexual assault cases, The Wall Street Journal reported, citing people familiar with a draft of the rules. The new rules would be a shift from the initial draft leaked in August, which had given schools the option of using cross-examination in their procedures, but did not require it, according to the Journal. The draft of the new rules would mandate that accused students be allowed to cross-examine their accusers, but allows for the questions to be asked by...

    Special counsel Robert Mueller has referred to the FBI allegations that women were "offered money" to make "false claims" about him, a spokesman said Tuesday. Special counsel spokesman Peter Carr released this statement: When we learned last week of allegations that women were offered money to make false claims about the Special Counsel, we immediately referred the matter to the FBI for investigation. Mueller is investigating Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and possible coordination between the Kremlin and Trump's campaign.

    HARARE, Zimbabwe — A new documentary on massacres by Zimbabwe's military … The screening in the capital, Harare, would have been almost impossible under former leader Robert Mugabe, who led the country for 37 years and resigned following military intervention in November. President Emmerson Mnangagwa, a longtime Mugabe loyalist and enforcer who succeeded him, has tolerated documentaries and plays critical of the government amid promises of a "flowering of democracy." But none has taken such direct aim at Mnangagwa as the new documentary on the army operation he supported as state security minister between 1983 and 1987. "Gukurahundi genocide: 36...

    Second wave feminism, edgy, in-your-face, bra-burning feminism reached its crescendo in the late sixties and early seventies. The Pill hit the market at the same time which immediately opened a brave new world – a world where sex was de-coupled from reproduction. Almost overnight, marriage and motherhood were deemed to be “below” the aspirations of young girls who were encouraged to pursue careers rather than eligible men. Gloria Steinem’s Ms. magazine was at the forefront of this movement. Marriage was out, children were out, free love was in, and it was definitely fun while it lasted. Soon, however, feminism...

    The View co-host and ABC legal analyst Sunny Hostin made an outrageous argument on Thursday’s show that should raise eyebrows. Discussing Melania Trump’s comments stating we needed evidence when accusations of sexual assault are made, Hostin grew irate after co-hosts Abby Huntsman and Meghan McCain defended the need for due process. Objecting to the need for supporting evidence of any kind, Hostin gushed, “A woman’s word is enough!” After playing the clip of Mrs. Trump, Hostin bashed the First Lady for doing “so much damage” in arguing that a woman’s word alone was not enough to put someone in jail:...

    Dear Professor Christine Blasey Ford, Like millions of women, I watched you testify about the worst day of your life. Millions of us identified with your fear and wondered if we would be brave enough to wrestle ourselves past that grip of terror if we were in your shoes. Millions of us watched how you held onto the tears that wanted to come up; we know where that place is in the body — the place that pushes down on the rising tide of remembered pain. We know how hard that is. We’ve been holding onto our tears for a...

    I am a mom of two. The beautiful girl who made me a mom is almost 6 years old. That same beautiful girl was conceived in a rape. As soon as I saw the positive pregnancy test, I thought abortion was the answer. Abortion is “always the answer” when a woman is raped, isn’t it? In fact, I was working as a nanny and my employer told me I would have to abort if I wanted to keep my job because she didn’t want her children to see me “like that.” I went to the pregnancy resource centre here in...

    Even before the sexual revolution destroyed the norms that once governed the male libido and that steadied the relationship between the sexes, sex was the realm of ambiguity and indirection. The #BelieveSurvivors contingent asserts that survivors rarely if ever lie about their experiences—meaning, they rarely make those experiences up out of whole cloth. This assertion is mostly true; in most cases of alleged campus rape, something did happen between the accused and the accuser. The issue is how to classify what happened. (To be sure, there are rapes that go unreported, but there are also outright fabrications, such as the...

  • Vanity: 1994 Study Finds 41% of Rape Claims False Over 3 yr period in Midwestern Town

    The document is at link. 1994 study where city and college rape reports were examined. Overall, 41% were proven to be false. The college campus reports were 50% false. "Quite unexpectedly then, we find that these university women, when filing a rape complaint, were as likely to file a false as valid charge." Keep in mind, under Obama's "Dear Colleague" Letter, the new standard on campus for 'proving' rape is the lower "more probable than not." This mentions the factors indicating a false rape report which I'd posted in a previous 'vanity': the Air Force Study by Charles P. McDowell.

    A narrative has emerged over the past few years that women alleging sexual assault must be believed. That narrative took on heightened visibility in the wake of the sexual assault allegations of Christine Blasey Ford and the denials from Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. It is imperative that all sexual assault allegations be taken seriously and investigated appropriately — something that has not always been the case. But the Innocence Project, which was founded in 1992, has demonstrated through DNA testing that there are numerous cases of men sent to jail because they were wrongly convicted of sexual assault. The...
