Have you been in the position of investigating your co-worker, believing from the beginning that he was guilty, and then seeing it through to his conviction?

This guy was my shipmate in the Navy, and we’d trained together. I was also a charter member of the ship’s Sexual Assault Victim Intervention team. I had considered the guy a friend, but the moment the first woman spoke up, I believed her. Problem is, there’s this thing about our justice system — requires EVIDENCE. “Innocent until proven guilty. You canNOT convict a person just because someone else accused that person without any further evidence. An accusation by itself is useless.

We knew we couldn’t convict on her word alone, so we asked around…and soon found two others who described the same experience. That’s all we needed.

For rapists, the act is almost always like Lay’s potato chips — “you can’t have just one.” Rape is not about the sex, but about the power…and power is as addictive as any drug. That’s how Epstein, Weinstein, and Cosby were convicted, and why Trump should be convicted — they all showed the same pattern my scumbag co-worker did.

Biden, however, does NOT show the same pattern. His habit of giving hugs when they weren’t asked for is not good, but it’s not even close to rape. That’s why I say Reade is probably lying…and there’s nowhere near enough evidence to even determine a crime was committed.
