Let only she who is without sin make a rape accusation?

I'm sorry to see the case against DSK collapsing because the alleged victim has been found to have lied in the past. Is it any less wrong to decide she must be lying now because she lied before, than to decide he must be guilty now because he's been known to have harassed other women?

I agree with you Crystal. It seems to me that the problem is that truth and law are not necessarily linked in our current structure. The movie - "A Law Abiding Citizen" touched on this problem - did you see it?
