NBC -
Jurors in the trial against Harvey Weinstein indicated they were deadlocked Friday on
the two most serious counts against him, prompting the judge to order that any
verdict must be unanimous.

New York Supreme Court Judge James Burke added that if the jury can't reach a
unanimous decision, then it can't return a verdict on the two counts of predatory
sexual assault, which carry a maximum penalty of life in prison. The judge also
asked the jury to continue deliberations, which are set to resume Monday morning.

I wonder how much it cost Harvey to arrange that.

A promise to become a movie star if you just come up to his room for an audition.

It was the walker... "He's a sexual predator, but look, he's crippled and old. Probably can't even molest a hamster any more ! "

hung up on just one charge. Probably guilty on the others. Still a good chance for prison for life.

Juries often vote to acquit some counts while convicting on others. Being hung on a count shouldn't affect other counts.

We can't pretend that the rich don't enjoy different outcomes in criminal trials, can we?

Blaming the victim is almost always a successful strategy in sexual assault cases.

People with better lawyers have better outcomes. So there's that. The rich in general do better than the poor. Always have. Always will.

One of the sales jobs political party's do on people is "don't diss them - you can be rich too one day". Keeps them in line buying lottery tickets hoping for even a small hit so they can at least pay grandma's medical bills and burial cost.

Tragic, and true.

it still happens and it's nearly impossible to prevent in court.

The old 'She wanted it' has been (usually) replaced by 'It was consensual', at least in words.




Two for two, I'm good now.

We are a government of laws, not men.

all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

In this case, they pushed the narrative that the women sought him out to further their careers.

It doesn't take a political party to encourage people to want to be rich. You're mega-wealthy to most of the world and they dream of having what you have. Why shouldn't they?

Because being wealthy has very little to do with being happy or successful.

That's true. But It's not going to stop anyone from trying.
