Is the Horror of False Accusation More Urgent and Credible when Harvard Law Prof Alan Dershowitz Describes It?

January 22, 2015

From “A Nightmare of False Accusation That Could Happen to You” by Alan M. Dershowitz (The Wall Street Journal, Jan. 14, 2015): Imagine the following situation: You’re a 76-year-old man, happily married for nearly 30 years, with three children and two grandchildren. You’ve recently retired after 50 years of teaching at Harvard Law School. You […]

Acknowledging Chris Tucker’s Restraining Order Blog

January 20, 2015

I’ve been in correspondence this week with Matthew Chan, the author of ExtortionLetterInfo.com (ELI) and the appellant in a permanent protection order case presently under deliberation by the Georgia Supreme Court. The writer of the post you’re reading is under an identical injunction—and for the same reason: public criticism (i.e., speech). A ruling in Matt’s […]

Not All Feminists Are Women, but All Feminists Are Responsible for Why False Accusations Are Rampant and Why They Work

Feminist lobbying is to blame for the injustice of restraining order and related laws and policies. There are no ifs, ands, or buts about it. False accusations shouldn’t work, but they do—commonly, and not uncommonly to devastating effect. That’s thanks to feminist crusaders, who may or may not represent Women, and who may or may […]

I remarked to a commenter the other day that when I became a vegetarian in the 80s, I was still a kid, and my family took it as an affront, which was a common reaction then. Today, everyone’s a vegetarian or “tried vegetarianism” or has “thought about becoming a vegetarian.” Other subjects that were outré or taboo in […]

Feminism and False Accusation Culture

January 5, 2015

27

“The idea that—as pandering anti-feminist goon Christina Hoff Sommers asserted over the weekend—university campuses have a ‘false accusation culture’ is as ludicrous as the idea that Sommers herself is a feminist. Not only do we not have a ‘false accusation culture’ anywhere on earth, we don’t have an accusation culture at all. Most victims never […]

“Trapped”: Betty’s Story of Restraining Order Abuse

January 2, 2015

Betty Krachey says she only wishes she had superpowers. She has, nevertheless, been flexing her muscles pretty impressively for a former drugstore clerk. Betty launched a website and e-petition not long ago to bring flaws in the administration of restraining orders and the need to hold false accusers accountable to the attention of lawmakers in […]
