  1. Yeah, since the trend in the last decade has been for prosecutor's to charge men accused of "rape" when in most cases by definition rape is not even occuring. For example in Washington state, they have 1st, 2nd and 3rd degree criteria for rape - with 3rd degree basically being if a man has sex with a woman and the following day, she regrets it or decides she really did not want to have sex and requires no physical proof of forced entry, just a woman claiming she was raped. I had a close friend in college (when I was in Washington)that was accused of "date rape" by an ex girlfriend he had sex with that was jealous he was in a relationship with someone else and he was charged with 3rd degree rape based on her accusation, and his admission that they did in fact have sex. It was prosecuted in a backward county in Washington and the jury convicted him. He did 2.5 years, could not go back to college after he got out, and has had to work menial jobs for the last decade and a half and a times unable to find work. Fast forward (that happened in 94) to summer 2005, when I was renting a room at my house to him with his life destroyed, and his ex girlfriend that caused it all found him on Facebook and sent him a message that led to phone calls, texts and eventually them being back together again for over a year. I was speechless when she first came to my house but let the situation take it's course and watched it unfold. She apologized to him and said she was "confused" and that she only initially told a close girlfriend that he raped her but her girlfriend went to a university counselor and told her, who told the campus, who called the police - and at one point her father found out through her. She was in tears at my house telling him that she was "pressured" by her father, "manipulated" by the prosecutor, etc, etc And he took her back and they spent over a year together. He went so far as to hire an attorney and she came clean about what she said happened in 94. The original prosector that handled the case was contacted and he wrote a two page letter back to my friend's attorney that said alot but concluded with: "It is often common for women involved in dating relationships to change or revise their version of past events, although they were actually harmed. It was my job as a prosecutor to address the liklehood that it occurred. . . ." and it went on and on. That particular prosecutor eventually grew a conscience and stopped handling cases and going to trial and transferred to the information systems and recordkeeping division of that county's prosecutors office. To conclude, and after having read The Fountainhead years ago, and in terms of the "rape" part of the story with Domonique - given the proper circumstances and situation, and a different woman involved in a real world scenario - Howard Roark would have been arrested and charged with rape, convicted and lived the rest of his life as a registered sex offender, and no kind of epic speech to the jury like he did in the book would have saved him.

  2. I always thought it was strange that if someone committed a non-violent crime and was sentenced to prison, that it would automatically put them at risk of violence while inside of prison (including being raped). I would expect the same judicial system (although not a perfect one) that investigates a crime, prosecutes it, enables a fair trial and sentencing to also have the ability to make sure that once someone enters prison walls that they will not be forced to have sex against their will (raped). The fact is, that it could be prevented, but the people that are subject to the risk of being raped in prison, by the time they are already serving their sentences are felons, and noboby cares what happens to felons. I would think that the risk of having that happen as well, in the case of most first time offenders in felony cases (state or federal) would give prosecutors an advantage during a plea bargain stage prior to going to trial because any avoidance of going to prison would naturally also mean, being able to avoid being raped which in itself could be worse than a period of years of just being incarcerated without the risk of being raped. A sentence of a few years for drug trafficking, possesion or sale - or a white collar crime, should not result in a person being exposed to the risk of being raped in prison, or even possibly murdered by a violent inmate. I think that when the state takes on the responsibility of charging suspects with crimes and operating a venue for a trial that it has an equal responsibility to ensure that the person does the time they are sentenced to but are not at risk for being raped. S.O.
  3. There are many reasons why someone would have to go to prison as the result of committing a felony (misdemeanors result in jail sentences). Most of the prison population in the United States are currently serving time for non-violent crimes, with convictions related from drug charges resulting in the largest percentage and then there are also white collar crimes that result in prison sentences.

  5. Most drop zone planes are not perfect. Being packed into a late 50's Cessna 182, that is overloaded with more jumpers than it would normally fly people in, combined with a student pilot that is just logging hours at a drop zone on weekends. . . . .it makes getting out so much easier.
