52. Did I miss somewhere that Kobe Bryant was "convicted" of rape?

There was an allegation, an accusation and a settlement. As part of that settlement, I don't believe Kobe was required to admit anything other than a consensual incident. He was surely never convicted of rape.

Additionally, everything he's done since then has been to devote his considerable media influence to elevate women in sports and industry.

Mickey's Big Mouth Brett has done nothing but use his considerable influence to use the power of the state to take women back... not to the 1950's, but back to the 1850's.

I have no idea what happened in Denver, and neither do you.

I have a good friend whose wife accused him of molesting their daughter when they were going through a divorce. It cost him his reputation, a promotion that he had earned, and ruined his life. That accusation was later proven to be false.

Like victims of rape feel about those accused of rape, my friend feels the same about those convicted by accusation.

I think we would all live in a better world if we looked at and judged people by their totality... not as we believe them to be, but as they truly are.

Our political world loves for us to not look at the totality of a person... that way, someone like Donnie Shit for Brains can pretend that he's anti-corruption.

People are more than one part. If I look at the totality that I know about Kobe, and compare it to the totality of what I know about Kavanaugh, I know which one I'd trust with my daughter.
