All you know about the case is a woman is saying a man raped her. Do you take the woman's side?

  • I Stand Neutral

    I believe in innocent until proven guilty. An investigation and possible court case should still be carried out, The woman should be heard before the final decision is made, But if no evidence can be provided, Tough luck. There's a reason why we have due process, It's a protection to make sure the criminal justice system isn't abused. It's true its only a tiny percentage of rape accusers are liars, But we have a duty to make sure we don't accidentally create more victims ourselves (through miscarriage of justice) in the name of trying to help crime victims, Otherwise that damages the point of such a system.

  • Presumption of Innocence

    The man has the right to be presumed innocent until proven guilty. If the woman has absolutely NO evidence against the man, There is no reason to believe her. We cannot imprison a man just because he might have raped someone because someone said so and we have no evidence that they are telling the truth.

  • Not without evidence

    Why does this generation act as if women aren't capable of lying? I know two women that lied about getting raped when they were younger so their parents would take them to get the morning after pill. Women will often lie to gain social capital, Manipulation, Or to protect the perception of who they are and what they like.

    This is one of the most important parts of our judicial system, If we lose sight of that then our legal system is toast. We have to have faith in the people.
    Please never ever make a fake rape call. This just adds to the boy who cries wolf problem around rape.
