Ex-LA Ram Antonio Zendejas, 48, has been tried and convicted of rape in the court of last resort, the hysterical news media, based on nothing more than a lone woman's say-so.
I have no idea if this man is guilty. Nor do I have any idea if the woman, shielded by anonymity, is lying.
And neither do you.
What I do know is that Mr. Zendejas's reputation probably has been damaged beyond repair because our culture allows virtually any woman, without so much as a single scrap of evidence presented at trial, to use the police and the media to destroy virtually any man or teenage boy, if she wants to. And her identity is protected the way Clark Kent protected Superman's.
And that is fair -- exactly how?
The news reports says: "In a statement released by attorney Tim Younger, Zendejas denied the allegations, saying the charges, 'are utterly false. I look forward to the opportunity to prove my innocence.'"
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
But the police wouldn't have arrested him unless he did it, would they?
And why would a woman lie about a thing like that?
For answers to these and other questions about how innocent men are treated unfairly, and how the de facto presumption of guilt has destroyed the lives of countless innocent men and boys, read the rest of this blog.
