84. Were you a witness to what happened in Kobe's room?

You seem pretty goddamned sure of what happened, so I'm guessing you are a witness who was prepared to testify as to whether Kobe's accuser was a rape victim or more like, say, Carolyn Bryant. Maybe you're one of the "I believe women!" heroes incapable of the critical thinking necessary to objectively protect victims of rape while protecting victim of false allegations of rape. According to similar heroes, Demario Jackson should have gone immediately to jail after Corinne Olympios sorta kinda accused him of rape after a set member convinced Olympios that Olympios was a victim of rape. But for the video of the incident, Jackson would be in jail, likely for decades after some outraged judge read him the riot act.

Yes, it's possible that Bryant is a rapist, and yes, dear gawd or lawd say it ain't so, his accuser might have made a false accusation in the hopes of a multi-million payoff. Possible. Kobe said the sex was consensual, she said it was not. Only THEY know.

Kavenaugh lacked credibility from beginning to end. He denied that the incident occurred, presented a calendar that ultimately contradicted his own sworn testimony, lied about drinking as a minor during the period at issue, repeatedly lied about sexual references in his year book such as the meaning of the "Devil's Triangle" and "boofing," then lied about . . . ah hell. If you seriously give a damn, go read one of the many articles: Here's one: https://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/plum-line/wp/2018/10/02/all-of-brett-kavanaughs-lies-distortions-and-absurdities/

What I don't get is why people feel compelled to jump in either corner or grab a protest sign screaming "I believe!," therefore what I believe is reality. Even as more and more men are exonerated after spending decades in jail for rapes they didn't commit, America has yet to learn. From the Scottsboro Boys to the Central Park Five, America clearly hasn't learned a damned thing from the past.
