    Was he convicted? Accusations are free to make

      They are, yet less than 2% of accusations are actually false, so piss off with the “only accusations” bullshit as if it isn’t at least a massive red banner of a flag.

        That’s an interesting stat - where are you getting that from?

        So he wasn’t convicted.

        Innocent until proven guilty bud.

          That means the government shouldn’t just start throwing everyone in jail at the first accusation. That doesn’t mean the public can’t or shouldn’t act on the information.

            The information that nobody has proven in a court of law? That’s for barbarians

              You do realize that people also have the right of free association? The government needs to meet a very high standard before it can deprive someone of life, liberty, or property. Members of the public may refuse to do business with a person, or socially ostracize them, based on whatever information they have available.

                Sure but then don’t pretend there is anything righteous about it, it’s just rumours until proven.
