I was recently invited for an interview by Honey Badger Radio's Doge in Charge, Brian Martinez. We had an in depth conversation about feminism in the legal system, false accusations and the MeToo movement. The full interview is in the video below. Watch all the way through to learn what shocked viewers the most.
Any criminal defense lawyer will tell you that a majority of sex crime cases that run through the courts are 'she said/he said' cases. What that means is that there is no proof a crime occurred. Or no corroborating evidence that a crime occurred. Only the word of the accuser and the denial of the accused. In essence these are what a reasonably minded person would consider weak cases that should never make it into a courtroom. In the video below I discuss why and how some prosecutors will take weak cases, prosecutorial ethics and discretion, reasonable prospect of conviction, feminism influence and how it can all lead to wrongful convictions of the innocent accused.
It is better that some innocent men remain in jail than that the integrity of the Canadian judicial system be impugned. I adapt this quote from the same quote referring to English law by the English lawyer, Lord Denning. Lord Denning, out of concern for a discourse within the English justice system, adapted this from Benjamin Franklin’s original and proper quote, “That it is better 100 guilty Persons should escape than that one innocent Person should suffer”. As typical with today’s Social Justice Warrior complaints, there were comments or words taken out of context in the case at the heart of the Judge Robin Camp controversy. This controversy revolves around bringing the Canadian justice system into disrepute. However it is the feminist social justice warriors of the ‘scholarly’ kind that are worried about their ideology not convicting enough men.
The Canadian justice system is currently designed to convict and uphold convictions of sexual assault at any level. For actual violent incidents of rape, sodomy or incest this is a good thing as people should be punished. But when it's a malicious claim that's not true, or a claim based on false memory it becomes very difficult for a man to defend himself in the absence of evidence such as DNA, doctor reports, or alibi. As we learned from my previous post Prevalence of Sexual Assault in Canada: Does it Justify Rape Culture Hysteria? the majority of sexual assault cases in our courts are of a Level 1 nature - the least violent and even non-physical in some cases.
There is much discussion and debate about the true prevalence of sexual assault in Canada. Statistics are often cited that look like this:
