Quick to Judge

Who knows how the Dominique Strauss Kahn sexual assault case will turn out.  But the story looks very different today than it did a day ago.  Strauss Kahn, according to reports, was just released on his own recognizance because his accuser’s story has become so suspect.

This case — and again, we don’t know how it ultimately will turn out — reminds me of how fallible we are as humans. I would have strung up Strauss-Kahn on Monday.  I didn’t think he was guilty; I knew he was.  I could see it in his eyes. I was the proverbial neighbor to the mass murderer “who always knew there was something funny about the guy.”

What’s worse, even if Strauss Kahn is proved innocent, I will always view him in a suspicious light. The same thing goes for those kids who were wrongly accused in the Central Park jogger rape case. I suppose that’s just the way the human mind works.

Thank God for our judicial system, however flawed it is.

    Don’t be an apologist for this guy. All reports from people in the know indicate that this guy is a serial harasser and a scum bag. Just because he got away with it, doesn’t mean he’s innocent. OJ, anyone?
