She spreads Sandyhook conspiracy bullshiat so I'm not overly inclined to believe anything she has to say about anything.

Seems along the lines of the Rolling Stone accuser in that all the aspects of her story were literally impossible. No free beer because cadets weren't allowed to have alcohol seems to be rather irrefutable.

Cadets not being allowed to drink.
Cadets not being allowed cars on campus.
According to the article, when she left the Academy, she stated that no sexual assault happened.  But then goes on to say that she was raped 30 years later, just in time to block his promotion?  Yeah, not really believable.

What pisses me off about these particular long-duration situations is that by waiting, it becomes basically impossible to fairly investigate and prosecute. If there was any evidence it's long gone, and without evidence it becomes increasingly difficult to prove anything. Additionally if the accusation actually is true and the accused commits this type of crime in a serial fashion then a lot of people get hurt over time that may not have been hurt if victims came forward when the crime originally happened.

I'm sure some will say that I'm blaming the victim. I'm not blaming the victim for the actions that led to them being a victim, that's entirely on the perpetrator of the crime. Any blame is that by letting it go at the time and for a long time to come, it becomes impossible to hold a perpetrator to account.

She's a truther so maybe she just believes it happened because there is a complete lack of evidence that it happened, and that's just too convenient.

The intent here is not to get money from her, the intent is to dissuade other people from trying similar stunts.  He won't get rich off of her - in fact he'll probably lose money when you consider he's out of pocket for his lawyer's fees - but his reputation has been cleared and she won't be spreading allegations about anyone else on her blog.  I bet he considers that a clear win.

Yeah she sounds like she believed this in her own mind.

Do these idiot bloggers understand that, if you post falsehoods, you expose yourself to being sued for libel?

The scope and speed of the Internet can compound the damage for the subject of a false story, and the liability for the author, according to Tom Clare, a defamation lawyer who represented University of Virginia assistant dean Nicole Eramo in her lawsuit against Rolling Stone. "People really understand the value that a reputation has," Clare said. "Especially in today's Internet environment when even a blog post or a tweet can have such a broad impact. It can literally go around the world. And if something out there is false, juries are prepared to issue significant awards."

Additionally if the accusation is actually false it is very difficult in most cases to clear your name, and it becomes almost impossible to hold a false accuser to account.

False accusers get off too easily, hopefully this case will change that.

Yeah, but that's not the way the world works. The reality of it is, most women who are raped never report it. Of those who do, only a very tiny number are ever caught, and of that number, smaller still are convicted.

The number shrinks exponentially when you are talking about women in the military. There was almost no recourse then, and since the Military Justice Improvement Act (MJIA) did not pass, there is still very little recourse. Most women who are raped in the military are ostracized, and of the 26,000 raped that took place in the last year statistics were available, there were less than 300 prosecutions.

This is a strawman argument to say women should never step forward and speak up when they have been raped, no matter how long it takes them to get the courage to do so.

yeah, I'm triggered, too. congrats. I'm a rape survivor. I was raped in the military, and no, I never reported it. Some of them were in my chain of command at the time. i was kicked out when they lied.

it should be that only a tiny number of their rapists are ever caught.

but do with it what you want. Have at me. I'm right here, but I think it's farked up that this is what is talked about when it is just another way of keeping rape victims silent by intidimation.

I'd almost agree with you except character assassination is a thing commonly used to discredit rape victims.

What's her motive. Was this revenge for something he did? Did they have any contact in the last 30 years? Thirty years is a long time to sit and stew but not out of the realm of possibility. People can be incredibly petty. Is she mental? If that's the case he's just the unlucky bastard that ended up in the crosshairs. Are the allegations true? Possibly. Fark if I know. I've little faith in the so called justice system these days and I'm certainly not going to glean any truth from a news article.

What I do know is that I wouldn't sit down to have a beer with either one of them. I'll either be raped or accused of it.

Eight days after [her initial post accusing Riggins of rape], Shannon published a second blog post, revealing that she had been contacted by the Army CID to investigate her claims.

But there needs to be a balance. Providing victims (because they are not all women) a comfortable space to come forward should not equal automatically believing the accusation.
It's a fact that people percieve the world differently, that's why we have an investigation and judicial process.
We've unfortunately tilted away from innocent until proven guilty and this case is an attempt at course correction.

But in the spring of 2014, with the armed forces facing heavy criticism for their handling of sexual assault cases, Secretary of the Army John McHugh recommended removing Riggins from the list for promotion to general.

Why? Given the hell rape victims are put through during trial why wouldn't she want to avoid putting herself or her family through that? They get to have their name dragged through the mud, they get to be embarrassed and humiliated and shamed all over again, there's a good chance they won't be taken seriously, and the perp has a good chance of walking. In the Maryville rape the victim was run out of town and their house mysteriously burned down soon after. They're victimized repeatedly by the very justice system that's supposed to protect them. Damn right they don't want to go to trial when no one has their back.

Hey if 50.1% is good enough for a college tribunal to kick someone out of school and mark them a sexual predator in their transcript, it is good enough to deny a promotion. Obviously there isn't a problem, because it's not like they're being sent to jail. That's the logic used for campus accusations after all.

Add to that a fervent imagination and a taste for conspiracies, and you get this mess that's entirely of her creation.

One, we're not at 50.1% here. Two, are you saying that a college tribunal, which doesn't have a prosecutor, doesn't have investigators, and doesn't have to follow the rules of evidence or provide counsel, should nonetheless be held to a criminal standard? And you think that logic holds up?

She was raped, and someone who was the pillar of the community was able to use the legal system to intimidate and silence her and other rape victims.

She never recanted, she was just forced to take the blog down and sued. And I bet all who made that judgement were idiotic trumpvoters, and she needs to find a better lawyer to appeal and countersue.

She was telling the truth and was not believed.

This is why victims do not speak up. This is exactly why.
