Alabama GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore accused of sex assault w/ underage girls

Postby Marty [Mori Chu] » Fri Nov 10, 2017 2:56 am

Scandal brewing in the Alabama senate race. A big test for the GOP leadership to see whether they'll rightly denounce this guy even if it costs them a Senate seat. My wild guess is that they still let him run and hope he still wins. We shall see.

It's disgusting people are putting party over everything, including pedophilia.

There is nothing worse than pedophilia. I hope they are all brought out into the open and burn, no matter what party they belong to.

I hope the ones guilty burn. The one thing I worry about is condemning a bunch of people without a judge and jury. I watched the Orville a couple of episodes ago and they did a spoof on social media. They visited a planet who’s judicial system was based on upvotes and down votes of the public. If you are accused of something the video goes viral and people vote. If you get so many down votes you are guilty and lobotomized. You get to go on the talk show circuit to plead your case and if they aren’t convinced you are sorry you are in trouble.

In Moore’s case it was just one girl at first. Now there are several others stepping forward. Do we try him in the court of the public opinion and destroy his life and the rest of those accused without the benefit of a trial? Then again if there is a trial many times an accuser can be bought off.

We Americans have tried to politicize this topic and turn it into a D or R problem. It’s a people problem. Sexual predators come in all walks of life. I think Trump said it best. “When you are as famous as I am you can do whatever you want.” People in power are tempted to abuse that power sometimes.

I don’t think I have ever seen so many different people all being accused of being sexual predators than I have this past year. Are victims becoming emboldened by all the other people coming forward or is it something else?

I saw that episode. A bit of a rip off from Black Mirror though.

Everything The Orville does is a bit of a rip off. Originality is not its mission.

To cheekily go where Star Trek has gone before.

At this point, its basically Seth's take on Star Trek - its eerily close. He had pitched an actual Trek show at one point, but with his usual dick-jokes attached, it makes it a parody, and he can do Trek whether its licensed or not. Heh.
