    Stats show it is rare for it to be false accusations. Unless you have proof it happens a lot you are a part of the problem.

    I fail to believe you are this naive/ignorant..... If you accuse anyone famous your entire dirty laundry will be out and twisted...

    Mookie Betts and several of his teammates have stopped following him on Instagram. I know that sounds like an “oooh, big deal” type of thing. But I think in this situation it’s pretty notable.

    Dodgers reddit says that most of those guys never followed him in the first place. Not sure which of them and the guy who tweeted about them unfollowing him is wrong.

    Who knows. Weird situation. Just glad we’re not the ones having to deal with it.

    What stats? Iím not big on stats that are flawed. How would you know how rare it is for false accusations? If you say 5-10%, thatís because itís 10% that are proven false, right? What about all the acquittals or convictions that were false and you donít know? Are you only using a sample size of cases where there is irrefutable third-person evidence, if so Iíd listen to that stat.

    Anyways, I believe a whole lot of rapes happen that donít get reported and those are all rapes that happened. I believe it takes a ton of courage for girls to come forward, I genuinely do. I wouldnít even object to calling it a societal problem.

    However, I could also say that in cases with 9 figure bank accounts ans celebrity status, I would think the whole line becomes a lot more blurred as I understand human nature. Every case needs to be judged on its merits and nobody should be presumed innocent or guilty by anything other than the facts of THEIR case, nobody elses

    Yeah your entire dirty laundry gets aired but not every girl continued to hang out with their rapist, flirt with them, and had sex with them again, etc

    That’s the kind of stuff regular people have a hard time with

    Yeah and on top of it how many of those guys even run their own Instagram account. Clearly Bauer is a big instagramer bc thatís where he macks on chicks but a lot of them are run by marketing teams.

    Bauer's pretty much exonerated after these new details broke.

    A main factor of criminology boils down to whether there was premeditation or not and the fact that the girl was openly plotting against Bauer in a malicious manner (even going so far as to imply that there was a monetary angle) pretty much fucks over any chance she had at being portrayed as the victim.

    Seems like a clear cut case at this point. Any move from the Dodgers to keep Bauer off the field will be for optical purposes rather than punishment for wrongdoing. I hope the team does the right thing and lets him back on the field. At worst, the sexual physicality was clearly consensual. What more can they possibly hold against the guy? Bauer's the victim in this case.

    If what her friend says, which seems true, aren't true is like how, lol... it's her own incriminating tweets. It's gotten a lot better for Bauer, recently.

    Yeah buddy, seems like the friend provided the goods and it was verified.

    Whole thing seemed like a bit of a nothing burger once we saw the text messages released from Bauer's legal team. I sorta feel bad for the guy. Going to be tough to come back in the eyes of the public in this crazy culture. His own fault for being such a dumbass tho!

    He still assaulted an unconscious woman and admitted to as much over the phone in a recorded conversation. The source for these latest details is also a bit questionable to say the least.

    Radar Online is owned by the National Enquirer. Everyone should really think on that for a minute. I'd love to find out Bauer didn't do some disgusting shit to an unconscious woman. That isn't the reality of the situation though.
