Update: Ghomeshi not guilty on all counts.
Going in to today’s verdict the consensus among lawyers pointed to Ghomeshi being found not guilty.
True to speculation the “omissions” by the “victims” cast too much doubt on their testimony for the verdict to be otherwise.
I don’t doubt that the women were assaulted as they described however their failure, or someone’s failure, to probe their relationships with Ghomeshi at any depth has lead to this sad little trial.
I do not understand how they could have been so poorly prepared for cross examination let alone how this trial could have been given the go-ahead to begin with.
This whole sorry affair was to my view propelled by a cowardly politically correct lynch mob mentality.
The whole thing floated on a frothy, cartoon like tide of “Girl Power” & an entitled sense of feminist victim-hood that was completely disconnected from reality and to a degree the witnesses were swept up in those frenzied waters.
Sorry Twitter Feminists but Sailor Moon is about to be run out of town.
