    While the situation is a charlie foxtrot, I take hope from the fact that same arises from stupid laws, and that San Diego’s DA’s office are taking it up with the legislature to free judges to make the right decision.

    The pesimist in me asks if freeing judges to make the right decision will result in the right decision being made, but that’s borrowing trouble from the future.

    Equally unbelievable… the article has links to 10news coverage, and the comments there are chock full of idiots claiming that a recording of the rape is somehow evidence that she’s lying.
