This has little to do with the amount of evidence and everything to do with the corruption of the system. “And this isn’t the first time that Judge Strother has given a lighter sentence to a man accused of sexually assaulting a Baylor student. He’s done so on at least two other occasions, CBS News reports: In 2013, he approved probation for a man who pleaded guilty to rape, and earlier this year he allowed someone to serve his 30-day jail sentence on weekends.”

And is it your assertion that the the millions of women (and others) who have come forward in the past year to talk about their experiences with sexual violence are all liars? There were 12 million in the first 24 hours of #MeToo on Facebook alone. Since then we’ve had nearly weekly scandals breaking across a variety of industries. Is that all bullshit and overreaction?
