What really happened at Whale Beach? (HT Sydney Morning Herald)
An 18 yeard old woman accuses a an in his 60's of rape. The man's toast, right? Not so fast, my friend. Thanks to recovered IPhone messages that were deleted, the man was able to prove his innocence.
For example, on July 24, 2009 The girl claimed she was raped. The text message tells a different story:
"Thanks again for a lovely day. I probably would have committed suicide if it wasn't for u! Thanks again you maean a lot! Sweet dreams have a good one tomorrow! I'll miss u."
Would a woman who was raped send a message like this?? In a word, no.
When asked, the girl did not want to comment. "The alleged victim had told police she did not wish to pursue the matter." I guess not, since you've been outed as a liar.
Bottom line: Women who make false rape claims should be prosecuted and jailed. When some get sent to the joint, women will get the message and stop doing it.
The moral of this lesson: Text messages are a two-edged sword. It can work both ways.
