Belfast rape trial - all 4 found not guilty Mod Note post one

Strange.. I'm kinda relieved it's all over.

http://www.thejournal.ie/belfast-rap...28309-Mar2018/

Mod Note Keep this relevant to this thread and don't bring up others. ie the eighth amendment thread.

MOD NOTE By the way don't post anything from members on the jury that's appearing online.

Their careers have probably been ended either way. There are no winners here.

Expected that. Maybe thought they'd charge Harrison but not surprised by the outcome. Never enough evidence to prosecute.

Based on what I’ve read, it seems like the right decision. There was plenty of doubt there. Being a misogynistic jackass isn’t illegal.

Edited to add, because I think it’s important: A feminist friend of mine thought the men were innocent based on what she had read of the case. Not all feminists are irrational beings. My friend is a scientist though. Maybe her training allows her to evaluate things in a cold, clear manner.

It saddens me that (regardless of whether or not she was up for it or whatever) they would want to defile a young woman like that anyway..
