Re: “Letters to the editor, March 31, 2016

The problem I see in this letter is that it ignored why Ghomeshi wasn't convicted. The accusers lied and that is all there is to it. The judge's decision says that a not guilty verdict doesn't mean the crimes didn't take place. It seems that he thought Ghomeshi is guilty but he couldn't trust the evidence three people put forth when all three of them lied under oath. I've seen a lot of anger since the verdict but none of it is directed at these three who cost themselves the verdict they wanted. Ghomeshi got off because these women didnt tell the truth in court and got caught lying. The system didnt fail them. Police encouraged them to charge him and the courts heard their case and rape shield laws protected their identities and even after they liied they wont be charged becaue that might stop other women from coming forward. The system did everything right and the mistake was from the accusers. Special courts wont change that they told lies about not talking about the case. And if special courts don't follow the same rules as normal courts then what happens? Do people get convicted on a person's say so? Thats why they burned witches.
The letter talks about living in a society that assumes your utterances are falsehoods. Thats not this society. As soon as someone is accused of sexual assault their life is over. Ghomeshi has been guilty since day one in the public's eye and we believe every accuser now no matter what. We wont evenb blame his accusers for telling lies and its a scary world where people are accountable for what they might have done but accusers are not responsible for what they did do. Courts should decide things based on facts not emotions
