Feminists WRONG to put justice system on trial over Ghomeshi verdict

David MenziesMission Specialist

To virtually nobody’s surprise, ex-CBC radio host Jian Ghomeshi was recently found not guilty of a variety of charges ranging from sexual assault to overcoming resistance by choking. 

Predictably, the usual suspects were outraged, claiming this verdict is yet more evidence that the justice system is “broken.” But is it?

The justice system is fuelled by evidence and frankly, the three witnesses for the crown did such a disservice in their testimony and their collusion that it’s actually a minor miracle the Ghomeshi case ever made it to trial in the first place.

Should Justice Horkins have overlooked the dozen or so glaring inconsistencies in the witnesses’ testimony? Was he supposed to overlook what he deemed to be deliberate lies uttered by the women who made the claims? The Crown relied solely on testimony that was old and not very credible.

Feminists claim the Ghomeshi verdict is more evidence that the justice system doesn’t function properly when it comes to sexual assault. They say the self-damning testimony from DeCouture should’ve been ignored; ditto for the self-damning testimony from Witness #1 who sent Ghomeshi a photo of herself posing in a bikini after her alleged assault.

But, do feminists really want the bar lowered for sexual assault considering that whole “rape culture” thing?

The presumption of innocence is not a favour to the accused or an act of charity by the judge. Rather, innocent until proven guilty is the very bedrock foundation of every western legal system to ensure we don’t wrongly convict innocent people.

As feminists clamour for a different standard of justice for certain crimes, they should be very careful what they wish for.

After all, there have been cases in some European countries where certain migrants have been hauled into court accused of everything from rape to honour killings only to have the sentence watered down because of “cultural sensitivity.”

Do feminists really want a sliding scale of justice based on political correctness?

Feminists shouldn’t be condemning Justice Horkins or the justice system. Instead, they should focus their wrath on the three alleged victims. Thanks to their behaviour, they’re ultimately the ones who did all alleged victims a gross disservice.

It’s like the school teacher or other person in authority accused by a child of being a molester, they have no defense. Their lives can be ruined but in the case where a person is proved to be guilty of this type of behaviour, then the book needs to be thrown at them, castration, long prison terms and restitution are only the starting points.

Ghomeshi is an Iranian Canadian. Back home those three women would be hung for lying shortly after the trial. Of course that would be going too far, but there has to be some punishment for ruining an innocent mans life. I would say 5-10 years would be fair, and women wouldn’t be so quick to charge an innocent man. Take that you Feminists !

I just heard through the grape vine that those same fems are going tomorrow morning to protest at the big mosque in downtown Toronto against the sexism alleged, taking place there

Weird sex ? For sure ! Never mind the lack of disclosure from the complainants, what must have really blown the crown’s mind is that Jian Ghomeshi had emails from that long ago. Interesting case, he still has one more to go, and my prediction is guilty, just because, the court of public opinion demands it.

If feminisrs had their way with the law a man could be castrated on the strength of allegations made by anonymous phone call.

Gomeshi was & is a slime-ball and so it seems only natural he would “collect” slime-ball women!

Your last paragraph says it all David Menzies. If the feminutzies feel the need to blame something or someone for the not guilty verdict Ghomeshi received from the courts, they should blame the women who withheld evidence. It looks like it never should have gone to court in the first place, at least not with those particular ‘victims’. There were 20 women who came forward, I guess they didn’t want to testify, or too much time had passed or they were all lying. I tend to think there is some truth in the story somewhere, just not with these 2 or 3 witnesses. We’ll never know, unless he tries it again and the woman comes forward right away with a story she can back up. Nope, those feminutzies should shut their mouths and go home.
Drew, “There, There, your tears say more than real evidence ever could.” is exactly what any real feminist would find completely unacceptable and rail against.

This makes me think of an early episode of the Simpsons where Homer was accused of sexual harassment , there were women on a talk show acting victimized and the host said-“There, There, your tears say more than real evidence ever could.”

gender wage gap…nope. companies would hire women only if they could pay them less than a man.
equal rights, granted in 1960. chargeable offense if you don’t have them.
rape culture-not in Canada however feminists are too lazy or too stupid to do anything about it countries where it actually does exist . rape happens to men a lot more than it does to women. the feminists do not include prison data in their numbers because their argument would fall apart.
sexism- yes feminists are the biggest offenders.
censorship-fully endorsed by feminists who wish to ban anyone who does not agree with them.
the Patriarchy- does not exist. money rules and it is gender neutral
identity politics- a social construct made by feminists. no group is more or less oppressed than any other- we have laws preventing this.
feminist serve no purpose in western society and are nothing more than a bunch of whiney, lesbian, man-hating, narcissistic, sociopathic, bleeding vajayjays . their ideology is flawed ,at best.
time to outlaw this cult and put its members to death for crimes against humanity.
