We overwhelmingly heard her side of the story (the lying side of the story) for months.
I don't know your sources, but I've not heard her side at all, other than there were charges filed. Nada. Did 60 minutes do a story on this, or not? And what did they conclude?
Now we're hearing the truth, and it turns out that she had no concern for the lives of the people she falsely accused.
So, you know the truth of the matter? A lot of people claim they do.
She hid in anonymity and tried to ruin people's lives. Let's put her on trial, I'm all for it.
If she's broken a law, then let charges be brought.
This, to me, isn't a story about class in America, it's the story of a liar who almost ruined the lives of innocent young men. Those young guys could be a bunch of pr*cks that have money, think the world owes them, etc... (although I have no knowledge either way), but they didn't deserve to be falsely accused of rape. I honestly can't believe that anyone would take her side at this point.
Like I said before, there's more than one side to a story. That's not the same thing as saying there are only two "sides" and you or I have to pick one of them.
Do you believe we should have public defenders? (those who defend the indigent who face criminal charges)? Why or why not? If all this criminal stuff is so obvious, why bother having trials?
