The United Kingdom, 2016.
A London commuter, (51-year-old artist, man) has been accused of sexually assaulting an “award winning” actress at a busy train station after a jury threw out claims the crime took place in the brief second they passed one another. This man was accused of brushing against the actress, who cannot be named for legal reasons, and sexually assaulting her by penetration. The award-winning actress, who is in her 60s, accused the man (the real victim) of penetrating her for two or three seconds following a violent blow to her left shoulder.
She contacted police, who tracked him to his East London home two months later using data from his Oyster card.
Feminist will think he is just “another evil men” and must be punished, right? Feminism is about equality, right?
But there is a problem and that’ not the whole story. Actually, feminists won’ t tell you the whole story.
What do feministis think? : “
If anyone is prosecuted for filing a false report, then victims of real attacks will be less likely to report them.” — David Angier (Massachusetts District Attorney), feminist.
“Men who are unjustly accused of rape can sometimes gain from the experience.”, Catherine Comins, feminist.
The whole story is….
The CCTV footage showed that the 51-year-old artist walked past the woman without altering his stride, and with a newspaper in one hand and the other on his rucksack strap.
The CCTV did not conclusively prove there was any form of physical contact between the two strangers, but it still led to the CPS presenting a case that the man was able to penetrate the actress, who is in her 60s.
In a three-day trial Mark Bagshaw, defending, said the allegation could not have taken place in the half-second time frame shown on CCTV, especially as the man was carrying a newspaper in his left hand – the one he was alleged to have used in the assault – and holding his bag in his right.
It was impossible to do anything like that reported by this “actress”.
The defendant, who said he had endured a year-long “Kafkaesque nightmare” as a result of the complaint, blamed the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) for forcing him to endure “mental torture” as a result of the charge.
A jury at Blackfriars Crown Court took 90 minutes to clear the man (the real victim) of the charge of “sexual assault by penetration”, the Mail on Sunday newspaper said.
The real victim (the man) told the court: “I would have had to crouch down, put my hand up the woman’s skirt… penetrate her, take my hand out again… all while holding the newspaper and walking along the concourse.
There were no witnesses, no forensic evidence and the actress failed to pick out the man in an identity parade of video images following the alleged incident in December 2014.
The actress was wearing a coat and jacket and a thin dress over “training pants” following a yoga class, the jury heard.
The man was named humiliated and embarrassed in front of others. The real criminal (the actress) WAS NOT named for legal reasons.
That is the feminist equality.
What a bizarre situation. This woman should be charged, named and shamed and forced to pay him money in damages! As a woman, this sort of thing really annoys me. She has done no favours to real victims of sexual assaults. She should be ashamed of herself! With the video evidence available shouldn’t the CPS charge the women with wasting Police time and wilful abuse of the justice system? Name & shame. Once again no protection or rights for those who turn out to be innocent.
