The country has just gone through a case where a woman claimed she was sexually assaulted. If you were thinking about the charges against Brett Kavanaugh, you would be wrong.
The accused said, “I felt humiliated.” In an interview with ABC News, he went on to say that he’s struggling to move forward ever since a woman falsely accused him of sexual assault.
Teresa Klein claimed that he groped her at a Brooklyn convenience store, not far from the accused’s home. It was not until days later that the surveillance video in the store showed the boy's hands were in front of him. It appears that when he was passing by Klein, his backpack may have rubbed against her.
Until Klein saw the video, she continued to accuse this 9-year-old boy of sexual assault. This adult woman was charging a 9-year-old boy of sexually assaulting her.
She admitted in her apology several days later that she didn’t know the boy's name, but she was sorry.
I happen to believe that sorry just doesn’t get it for me. This woman confronted the boy with sexual assault and called 911 to complain. When she found out that she had made a mistake, she said, “I’m sorry.”
Let me ask my readers a question: which of the two people has paid a very high price? Does Klein owe the young man a lot more than an apology? According to Slate, the average settlement in sexual assault cases is $53,000.
We have no idea how this young man, no, rather a child, may be damaged for the rest of his life.
He has to live with the charge for the rest of his life, and Klein gets off with no consequences for her actions.
We all saw the character-assassination attempt on Judge Kavanaugh when Dr. Ford charged him with sexual assault. When the FBI investigated the alleged witnesses from Dr. Ford, none could corroborate her charge. Judge Kavanaugh and his family, though, will live with the burden of a sexual assault charge for the rest of their lives.
What can we learn from these two examples? The women in both cases made the charge against a child and a man (Kavanaugh when he was a young man) neither of which was proven to have happened. We have reached the point in our society that a charge of sexual assault is now a weapon of mass destruction.
Look at the price that Judge Kavanaugh had to pay when political leaders like Senator Chuck Schumer said, “He should recuse himself based on the claim.” In the other case, the young man was very concerned that something he had supposedly done would be blamed on his mother and she might be taken away from him.
Rasmussen Reports ran a recent story that said 59 percent of its respondents believe it is a scary time for young men in America today.
