It is an ethical requirement for a criminal defense attorney to fully investigate the evidence against his or her client. For your guest to characterize adherence to this obligation as only for intimidation is pretty out-of-bounds.

With all due respect for this public-spirited woman "rape" and "stomach ache" are not analogous. "Rape" is a legal and social term, "stomach ache" is purely physiological.

FYI.... let's remember that under Islamic Sharia Law the woman is always guilty until PROVEN innocent.
If she reports a rape, she must have 3 MALE (ony) witnesses to support her case or SHE will accused of adultery.

....and women think that it is unfair HERE.
Does our guest have a thought about that?

Walk carefully on this issue.

Women are as well becoming studious in learning how to screw their male partners.

Not advocating crime-just...walk carefully.

Remember, the night the lady was raped in Central Park (the famous one) and that got all the media attention because she was a successful business person, a black woman was also raped in Harlem and thrown off a roof.
Nothing said about that, though.

Everything is about white or successful economically savvy women who are raped.
Or those women who profit the above.
