If you were walking down the street and got mugged would you be too ashamed to immediately report it? If you got raped would you be too ashamed to report it and therefore let the rapist remain free? Unless you intend to kill the guy yourself you should report it or just go have a beer and forget about it. I have zero sympathy for anyone who waits years extending into decades before whining about what some guy did to them. Such cases get an automatic "Not Guilty" verdict from me.
Then you have absolutely no clue about this issue and shouldn't be discussing it on a public forum. It's clear you have no knowledge or education about the actions of rape/assault victims. Not to mention, your callous and cruel disregard for them speaks volumes about your lack of compassion and decency.

The Gov has now stated he will not resign despite the entire Va. Dem body calling for him to.
This is curious. I see a motive. He can hold his breath as the Lt Gov resigns under what many see as far more serious charges. Terry McAuliffe just called for the Lt Gov to resign immediately. If that happens, and Virginia law allows it, then Northam can choose his replacement and then resign thus avoiding a Rep becoming gov. I see this as a strong possibility due to Northams digging in his heels as the gang calls for him to leave. It becomes a choreographed exit for both the Gov and Lt Gov.

Really? You have no higher standard for physicians, nurses, public servants, police, firefighters, elected officials than that they have no felony convictions?
How about unproven felony charges? How many misdemeanors would be a problem? What about drunk driving or a little interest in child pornography?

The governor is elected to represent all the people of his state and derogatory behavior, especially on an issue so problematic as race, compromises his job through the controversy and uncertainty it brings to his leadership ability.
We are electing politicians, not angels. Politicians are crooks, liars, and scum. If they do most things right that is about the best that you should expect from them.

you have no clue what you are talking about, period. the more words you vomit the worse it gets. stfu and get a grip, because anyone with a brain is already having a good laugh at your expense.
I'm still waiting on your sob story so that I can have a good laugh.

You seem to be very autocratic and bossy. Why don't you run for elective office?

So if a couple of guys beat you up and then decided to sodomize you, just to show you how powerless and worthless you are, you would head to the police station immediately to report it?

Do you understand how trauma works on the human mind?
Unless I was going to kill themselves myself I would report it.

"Male rape Most people who commit rape are male and most victims are female. But more than 1,000 men report being raped to the police every year and the police and government say this is likely to be less than 10% of the real number.Men and boys who have been raped can contact Survivors UK for help and advice."

if you continue to harass and insult survivors then you have opened yourself to all the ridicule and backlash such a pig deserves. period.

i have zero respect for such a disgusting viewpoint, and will flush you and your words right down the cyber toilet, sending you where you all belong.

You are the one who picked the fight. I didn't harass or insult you but the thread shows that you engaged in that behavior toward me.
