WhoGAS:
You know what, if you want to actually carry on the conversation (which I'm more than willing to do...this is great!) email me and I'll send you my IM (skype, lync, whatever) to continue.
You're actually pretty farking cool and I would love to talk to you more on this subject and others if the topics come up.


That does sound delightful :)
But unfortunately I don't think my spare minutes at work or the lack of such when I go home to my kids would make for good conversation. Maybe in a years time when I have a stable job and my kids are a little bit older and not quite as prone to crawl into the dishwasher if left unattended we could meet again on a forum somewhere :)
Have a nice day WhoGAS, and thank you for making me think about the important stuff :)

I so appreciate your honesty and look forward to the future.  I don't hold you to any promise, of course, as we can't predict the future.  This was an extremely pleasant encounter!

BarkingUnicorn: teenytinycornteeth: I don't understand the law (I'm not saying that in a smartassery way, I honestly don't understand it). If you are charged with one count of rape does that mean you could have raped 1 person fifty times? Is each count essentially a victim?  It seems like there should be something akin to Super Mega Rape when you're attacking a woman constantly for a decade.

Each count is one instance of rape.  Potentially hundreds of counts per victim in this case.  He'll be charged with the ones that prosecutors feel they have the best chance of proving beyond any doubt that a reasonable person would have.  That will depend on a victim's memory of a given instance and any witnesses to it.

Then they'll add up all the maximum penalties, show them to Ariel, and ask if he wants to make a deal.  Or not.  They may go for the death penalty.


So, when I'm reading in the paper he was charged with three counts of rape, they're saying that they only think they can prove he raped someone three times?  And those counts could possibly increase as the investigation continues?

bifford: UnspokenVoice: bifford: Statistical evidence suggests that the incidence of past childhood abuse among felons rose sharply around the time courts began acknowledging it as a mitigating factor.

LOL That wouldn't surprise me. Do you have a citation for that? It isn't that I doubt you (it looks as though it would be correct) but I want to be able to point it out in the future and I'm sure someone will ask me for a citation.

Eh... no, I don't have any actual statistics, so I embellished that a little (but this is Fark.com, so fark you), but I'm sure it's true, and if I ever stumble across any statistics I'll bookmark them.


That is too bad, it would be beautiful.
