He robbed someone and attacked a police officer who was about to detain him for that robbery. The only reason why anyone questions that narrative is because the media jumped at the opportunity to define this story at the outset as "unarmed black teenager killed by racist police force." This is EXACTLY what happened after Trayvon (with Zimmerman taking the role of the police officer), the attempts to strip this story of the "racism" overtones and to redefine what made this a national story are intended to skate around the truth. The members of the mob are the racist ones, the media members responsible for the subterfuge are the racists. This is a watershed moment in our lives, commit to it, or you're going to be dealing with a lot of cognitive dissonance for a long time.

And even if one were to take that at face value, I see no difference between a Mike Brown and someone who professes unabashed hatred. Congratulations, your value to civil virtue/discourse is no better than the 'dead thug' in question.

Your stupid ass should quake and shut up when I speak, given how much issue you took at the outset with my (rightful) skepticism towards any sympathetic portrayal of the dead thug as an "unarmed black teenager."

It's interesting you think you have the standing to make a moral decree and label him a 'thug', considering all of the unabashed hate and vitriol you possess, let alone your complete lack of social graces. The scum that comes out of your mouth juxtaposes polite society just as much as some kid shoplifting cigars.

I'm going to buy myself Dragon Age Inquisiton, maybe Far Cry 4 and Diablo 3 as well. That's it.

And that is always a possibility, but it also casts significant doubts on the validity of their claims. And a few of the people that he allegedly raped had no further contact with him after the event, isnt that correct? So why did some return and some did not? I'm sorry, but there are too many discrepancies in all of this for me to take all of them at face value.

How does the notion of psychological coercion cast doubt on the validity of any one claim? Moreover, how do the discrepancies between accusers (some falling for the coercion, some ignoring it) cast doubt? It's not like all women will respond in the exact same way.

Quite frankly, it seems like a lot of people in this thread are giving him the benefit of the doubt simply because of who he is. To me, it seems extremely implausible that one accuser would come forward, and then so many women with a tangential connection to him (auditioned for a show, met on a set, and so on) would fabricate such detailed, varied stories (keep in mind, not all of the accusations are outright rape). Nevermind the fact that these type of accusations are not exactly new for him.

Believe what you want, because he'll never be convicted in a court of law, but don't let emotion cloud your perception.
