Just being accused of something does cause problems for a person.The media shouldn't show,print,or make it news until it is fact.I think they should with hold the name of a suspect till proven guilty.Report on the crime,but by no means release the names of the people involved.The law when they arrest a person,they throw everything on them to see what sticks.Then when it is said and done, it's never the same charges they started out with.They never put on the news when a charge is dropped,or do you see it on the front page of the news paper.The way things are you are seen as guilty, until you proven them wrong.


Yor are absolutely right.

<quoted text>Yes they do.... Heck women Sex boys Also..but they won't Get Much Time in Jail, unless.she's a schoool Teacher, as if.ONLY Female Teacher Only does it.....heck no!!!....
A high school boy sleeping with a female teacher is way different than when some 30,40 or 50 yr old guy takes advantage of any of those girls in high school.......The boy is a STUD if he sleeps with the teacher and brags about it with his friends who get jealous and want some of the action too. Wit a girl, her life is ruined because what boy would want her? She is called names by girls and boys and will possibly end up KILLING HERSELF.

This is life:
A young man sleeping with any woman is not the same as when a girl sleeps with some older man . These girls who have been abused sexually are likely to kill themselves due to DEPRESSION and HARRASMENT while the male student is trotting around school ready to IMPREGNATE or score with some other female because he's already forgotten about sleeping with the teacher he slept with a few weeks ago........Testosterone is in control of him. I know because I had high testosterone around 16 or 17 and spent most of my time thinking about sex.

It just tells you the jurors DO NOT EQUATE a man sleeping with a 16 yr ol girl as being equal to a woman sleeping with a 16 yr old boy........I say they are NOT EQUAL TOO because the 16 yr old boy has a STUD reputation while the 16 yr old girl is referred to as a slut......She'll probably kill herself while the 16 yr old boy keeps scoring and sleeping with many, many, more women as he ages and dies say around 75. Most likely, the 16 yr old boy will probably forget the adult woman that seduced him right after he goes home and takes a shower. I know 'cause I am a man, and that is how men are wired.

A man seducing a 16 yr old girl IS NOT THE SAME as a woman seducing a 16 yr old boy, which is why these women get OFF LENIENTLY.

This is happening to me now and I need help. I live in Sydney. Someone made an accusation about me but it looks like it didn't get to the stage where police even needed to talk to me...it looks like this person has now turned to social media to spread this and I can't cope with the hate any longer and feel that there is no way out. My job is gone people are shouting at me in the street and I don't know what to do. What's even worse is I have no idea who my accuser is and everyone seems to know me. I am in an impossible situation and I really think that suicide is the only way out of the horror that is my life. I have never and would never hurt anyone . It's like I'm in an alternate reality

Suicide is not the answer. Turn to God for help. Stand up for yourself if you didn't do anything wrong. Please don't turn to suicide, think about your family and how it will hurt them. This to shall pass, just hold on. Praying for you!!

alright, i decided to set people straight about this thread. i knew the man in question and he was a good man with a good heart. the media should of never ran the horrible story that they did. they jumped on the girls side not knowing any truth and had they waited they would of found out this was not her first time pulling off such a thing. it angers me that people want to assume things and have no clue what they're talking about. it angers me that news people make up such awful stories without getting all the facts. also to those who think he died in an act of guilt are dead wrong. he couldn't handle going forward even with evidence showing he was innocent which in the end that was the case after all was said and done. we lost a wonderful man because of some awful people trying to get attention. i knew him, i knew her, i knew pieces of the story because i was there and the rest i trust from a source i believe was telling me the truth about what they knew of the whole event. i won't write the whole story out but just know he was an innocent man and that's the truth.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
