I heard something yesterday that succinctly sums up a key problem in the domestic abuse sector. “The government mistakes vested interest for expertise”

@nickiclyne We need to eliminate qualified immunity for both judges and prosecutors. There is no reason judges and prosecutors should be less responsible to the public than anyone else.

Wow that was abusive the way he was treating her for exercising her rights. 😮 (BTW, she actually works at a long term care home since the lockdown killed her job at the clinic) https://t.co/mpNmoZOpZ7

For those not on IG, this video is from a nurse who arrived at Pearson today and refused to wear a mask, take a COVID test or quarantine. She works at the plastic surgery clinic I wrote about in @WIRED. She tells security, “I’m a frontline worker actually. I’m considered a hero.” https://t.co/L3xFvg6uLr

A man can't win. All that education going around about explicitly getting consent for each sexual act is now being used against them. And it's a given that it doesn't stop her from lying about it after the fact.

Yes, a trial judge actually said this to convict a man: "The trial judge said that [accused’s] testimony about [asking for consent for sex] was “too perfect, too mechanical, too rehearsed, and too politically correct to be believed”. Decsion in full->https://t.co/AM0Ouht6TS https://t.co/NxRGrdf08N

This case should be mandatory reading for all Crown and defence counsel. It is a very important area to understand in the context of sexual assault trials. https://t.co/bEbtDxM7dw

"Why would a woman/man go to all the trouble to repeat their story about being sexually assaulted/abused if it wasn't true?" vs. "Why is she/he going to so much trouble to repeat this lie?"

It's almost as if Americans have been taking lessons from the Canadian system. Oh look how easy it is to send old white rich men to jail if we just remove this 1 barrier! https://t.co/zNhh41d9c6

In the US, a self proclaimed "destroyer of white men's egos" is removing the last of a longstanding protection against false & wrongful conviction. The requirement to prove a sexual crime occurred has already been abolished. Now it will be even harder to defend against a lie. https://t.co/LR7WbzGlod https://t.co/1ncjZXWr6s

I just testified in the House Public Safety Committee for our bill to eliminate the statute of limitations for reporting sexual assault. It passed through unanimously. We need the Senate to step it up. Thank you @IlhanMN @RepAishaGomez @AthenaHollins for carrying this bill.

If anyone is brainwashed, it's the people who believe that the government exists to protect the rights and well-being of its citizens. People watch endless documentaries of wrongful convictions and then cry, "but it was proven it court!" #doublethink

The city of Minneapolis is finalizing contracts with 6 social media influencers/“trusted messengers” to share “city-generated and approved messages” and dispel misinformation. Each will be paid $2,000 to share information during Derek Chauvin's trial: https://t.co/NU0NeBvzyp
