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.

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.
