Men's RightsMan wins right to sue rape-accuser for defamation after he was cleared of rape charges. (self.TheRedPill)

submitted by Kelly_Gruber

article here

Hope he wins a shitload of money and this leaves an impression on other women who try and pull the same shit.

The gossip was merciless and long-lasting, he claims, escalating into vandalism of his vehicle and threats of violence against himself and his friends. It became so bad Mr. Caron fled his home in Vanderhoof, B.C., to go into “hiding” in Prince George.

Fucking white knights

I think that there should be a new law formed named Simon's law that states that she needs to register in a database of false rape accusers and needs to disclose it immediately to any man she speaks to in a non-formal setting.

Then the world might take this seriously.

    Of course the standard of beyond a reasonable doubt would need to apply I agree.

    [–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

    Problem is..that would be a civil matter where burden is preponderance of truth...i.e. more likely than not...i.e. over 50%

    [–]dw0r 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    I'm saying I think it should be criminal given the damages it can cause.

    [–]idle_reception 26 points27 points  (5 children)

    Doesn't matter. Long story short I'm facing legal issues because of a women who's filled two prior charges that she ended up recanting. One completely, in court, and dropping the second one once another women feced up her story was fabricated.

    My lawyer thinks it's a joke they're even taking it serious.

    [–]1cover20 6 points7 points  (3 children)

    Well if she testified that the charges were false, then she should be convicted of the false and malicious charge -- if you're lucky enough to be in a jurisdiction where that's a crime.

    [–]idle_reception 11 points12 points  (0 children)

    She testified she may have said yes but said no half way through. No charges against her but it was enough to get that guy off the hook.

    The second incident the other women came out and told detectives she lied to prevent her bf from thinking she cheated, this came out after the man was imprisoned for 4 months. Even more twisted she fucked two brothers, same night, same room but only claimed rape on then eldest. (he kicked her out in the morning)

    Unfortunately I live in a state where this can all be accessed by a simple Google search. Try explaining first and second degree sexual assault charges along with two other felony charges that stemmed from these false allegations to friends, family, employers.

    I live in a 75k+ town and still hear his name get thrown around as a rapist. No charges against either girl.

    [–][deleted] 7 points8 points  (1 child)

    Technically any woman who either admits to, or is found to, have made a false rape accusation is guilty of falsifying a police report and perjury. They're liable civilly, too.

    Unfortunately, as we all know, that would be terrible PR for a police department and local governments.

    In many states If you commit perjury you are subject to the penalties of the crime you lied about. This should include mandatory minimum sentences of multiple years for people who lie about rape.

    Unfortunately the pussy pass is recognized by most courts of law so 'justice' is served merely in finding the male innocent.

    [–]LewisSkolnick 99 points100 points  (2 children)

    Whatever happens - this ruling is good news.

    It's bad news for the ladies who just want to make shit up I guess...

    [–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (1 child)

    I agree, and you shouldn't have to "win" the right to sue someone for defamation, especially in something this serious. If you didn't actually rape the person who's accusing you, you have every right to receive compensation for your time, stress, and reputation loss.

    [–]Endorsed ContributorRedBigMan 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    Especially considering all the extra-judicial punishment that comes with mere accusations. Like white knights vandalizing your car or losing your job, etc...

      [–]ThePragmatist42 45 points46 points  (2 children)

      Um.. Have you ever actually met people? There are a significant number of women that don't like men in general. There are also a significant number of men that feel it's their job to 'protect' women from 'bad' men, despite the fact that their White Knighting is literally sexism at it's finest. Treating women differently because they are women.

      I really wish this was hyperbole but there are plenty of cases that have proven what I've said to be true. Recent news of a man having his genitals cut off by his psychotic wife was met with posts of support for the WOMAN. Suggestions that the man deserved to have his genitals removed. Imagine the opposite of this happening. A man mutilating his wife because she did something to upset him. The outrage would be real.

      Oh, I apologize to all the women I just verbally raped with my words of truth but you were asking for it by wearing those headphones.

      [–]TRPsn 9 points10 points  (0 children)

      DUDE!! Just because they wear headphones doesnt mean they should have to hear everything that comes through those headphones. Thats victim blaming you verbal rape apologist!

      Reminds me of that episode of Scrubs where Turk went up to a female lead surgeon and told her "he has her back", all proud of himself. She put him in his place sarcastically and told him that her needing "protection" is a major insult. That is feminism done right.

        Look over to the right of your screen where it says "NEW HERE." I would read all of those just to get a better understanding of TRP, and you can form your own opinion about life as a man.
        As for hamsters, they just keep running in circles using the same bullshit to get away with the same bullshit because of feels. Im not very good with words so someone else can tag in and explain it way better than I.

        [–]solbrothers 7 points8 points  (1 child)

        Thanks for your help. I will see myself over to the sidebar.

        [–]let_terror_reign 11 points12 points  (0 children)

        I'll explain. What do hamsters do best? Run their damn wheel. They don't care about the world outside. They only care about the wheel. Such are women and 'feelings'. Women will do anything to preserve their feelings of indignation, however terribly rationalized it is. By hamster we mean rationalizing anything to make yourself feel better. The way a hamster would just run its wheel no matter what.

        Guys hamster too. When they make up excuses they know aren't the real reason why they don't do something. Like saying nah I'm too comfortable in this chair I don't want to go talk to her. Reality? Anxiety to approach.
        The wheel keeps on turning to keep worldview consistent and feeling nice.
        Women will rationalize and where any moderately self aware guy would feel guilty for rationalization, they will honestly believe their own bullshit.

        [–]jcrpta 20 points21 points  (24 children)

        You're missing the bigger picture.

        She's a minor. Not sure how Canadian law works, but were I to hazard a wild guess, she won't own a house or any other significant asset he can take.

        BUT.... I can think of a few possible benefits. Legal precedent, demonstrating in a public forum that he's innocent to name two.

        [–]Kelly_Gruber[S] 24 points25 points  (16 children)

        Because she's a minor her parents will be held accountable for any payment to this man if he wins

        [–]TruthFromAnAsshole 7 points8 points  (0 children)

        This is categorically false is Canada.

        Vicarious liability does not apply to parents of minors in tort law.

        [–]rattamahatta 2 points3 points  (13 children)

        But their parents didn't accuse anyone... her father would be just another victim of his daughter's insanity. He has rights, too.

        [–]hohndo 16 points17 points  (7 children)

        And responsibilities..his daughter being one of them.

        I'm pretty sure the parents had to be involved with the case so it's not like they weren't part of this ordeal.

        [–]getomc 10 points11 points  (2 children)

        Just because women are a liability doesn't mean no one should be responsible for them.

        [–]rattamahatta -1 points0 points  (1 child)

        Their fathers? So you think an innocent man should always be responsible for every stupid shit their little brat daughters pulls?

        [–]rattamahatta -1 points0 points  (2 children)

        Do you have any evidence for their parents being involved? How are you "pretty sure".

        [–]hohndo 0 points1 point  (1 child)

        I don't know. All I know is she's a minor.

        According to my research, under certain conditions a "independent" or "spouse" can sue without a representative that's over 18. There are a couple other reasons, but I'm sure those are the most common.

        There were a bunch of terms they used for someone over 18 to be their representative and "guardian" was one of the first mentioned.

        The situation doesn't affect me so I don't really give a shit. If this were in the US, I'd spend more time on it.

        In the US, parents are responsible for their kids financially unless the kid proves to the court they are independent at some point before the case. So, if they are involved, or not, they have to pay up. They are the liable and responsible ones for their kin.

        [–]rattamahatta 1 point2 points  (0 children)

        I don't know man, it seems wrong in this case. The father couldn't have possibly stopped his daughter from making a false accusation. You know who I think is liable for the damages? The court that doesn't seem to require evidence anymore.

        [–]TruthFromAnAsshole 1 point2 points  (2 children)

        Don't worry, OP is talking out of their ass. Parents are not held liable for their children's tort in Canada.

        In some cases, if the child is young enough, a court can find that the child isn't liable, but even for a toddler, the parent isn't held liable.

        If she did something while performing working duties, while working for her parents, then possibly, but that's a totally different doctrine.

          [–]TruthFromAnAsshole 1 point2 points  (0 children)

          That's a very special circumstance.

          His parents were able to be held liable for that because of Section 10 the School Act (British Columbia) which states that if school property is damaged by a student the parents can be held jointly liable.

          So in the case you're referring to (Nanaimo-Ladysmith school district no. 68 V. Dean) the trial judge was bound by the School Act, and the precedent from Coquitlam School District V. Clement.

          In fact, the judge actually stated she disagreed with this act, despite being bound by it.

          17 As an initial observation, I agree with the submissions of both counsel that this provision appears to be "draconian", in the sense that it could have a disastrous financial effect on a young person and his or her parents. Mr. Justice Esson said as much in Clement at para. 16: The section has the capacity to inflict upon parents, by imposing liability quite irrespective of fault on their part, a harsh and perhaps unjust burden of potentially ruinous dimensions. In this case damages of some $3 million are alleged. These, however, are matters for the legislature. It may be that the legislature will consider whether the section now serves a social purpose sufficient to justify the hardships which it can create.

          To answer your question, we still don't have vicarious liability to parents as a concept in our legal system, but that particular action had a statutory law that applied to specific circumstance.

          For the case at hand, even if she defamed him at school, this isn't a crime against the school's property, and that statute wouldn't apply.

          [–]Kelly_Gruber[S] -1 points0 points  (1 child)

          Play stupid games win stupid prizes, parents are held accountable for their children. Sad but that's the way it is when underage kids are protected by law.

          [–]rattamahatta 0 points1 point  (0 children)

          Two different topics. Children being protected from liability is one thing, their parents being held liable for something that is not a result of their actions is another. But if you have the law handy, point me to it.

            He won't lose. He just needs to show 51% that she was lying. His records of where he was + her statements to the police/social media do just that.

            [–]TruthFromAnAsshole 4 points5 points  (3 children)

            He just needs to show 51% that she was lying.

            This is a Canadian case, so this is mistaken... but in a good way.

            In Canada, in a defamation case the defendant has to prove that what they published is true. (Published can mean pretty much anything, including saying it to just one other person).

            He has to prove she did say it, and has to prove damages caused by her actions (damage to reputation counts). But, once he's shown she said it, she may prove it's true.

            Edit: in Canada, for civil law, it is balance of probabilities as well, not beyond reasonable doubt.

              [–]TruthFromAnAsshole 0 points1 point  (0 children)

              She will pay. Parents are not vacariously liable for their children's actions. There are some cases where a very young child committed a tort, and even then, parents aren't vacariously liable (interestingly enough, the children can be too young, and so no one is found liable; but the wouldn't apply here).

              So she will almost certainly be found liable, and it will be her responsible for paying it. We almost never assess punitive damages in Canada, so it likely won't be all that much (she's also gonna have to pay a shit ton in legal fees). If she doesn't have the money to pay now, there are a number of alternatives. A successful plaintiff can seize property to cover it (so say the girl's parents bought her a nice set if diamond earings dude can can take them) or garnishment, any job I'm the future, he can get a portion of her wage until the debt is settled.

              Of course, her parents, friends other family etc... can chose to pay for her. Tort law is meant to help the plaintiff recover their loss, not punish the defendant.

                  (A) The word is acquitted.

                  (B) There is no such thing as a finding of innocent.

                  (C) This never went to trial, so there was no verdict either way.

                  (D) He was never charged. He was investigated and showed the complaint to be bullshit. Now he wants to sue the lying POS who accused him, and for once we're seeing justice in a court of law.

                    On appeal, you don't get presumption of innocence.

                    So if you appeal you basically have two avenues, you can argue that the trial judge erred in law at some point, or you can argue that you are actually innocent.

                    If you proceed with the latter and win your appeal, winning your appeal is known as a finding of actual innocence. Depending on jurisdiction of course.

                    So yes, you can be found innocent in a court of law.

                    This will be worth watching and will likely not produce a global sea-change in the way that these false allegations are handled since the accuser is a minor, and the evidential procedures are a bit tangled. Definitely a step in the right direction, though.

                    The similarities between rape culture and the Salem witch trials are astounding. We act like our culture is above that nonsensical "accusation -> instant guilt" paradigm, but we play right into it. Women running around pointing fingers and everyone killing that person without question.

                    Bring back ancient China. If you made an accusation which was then proven to be false, you were sentenced with the same punishment that would have befallen the convicted party. That would be a fresh thing to see nowadays..

                    Does legal precedent in British Columbia apply to the rest of Canada? What about the Commonwealth? I'm not very familiar with that sort of legal / jurisdictional questions. Tried googling and couldn't find a straightfoward answer that I could understand...

                    I'm not a lawyer, and I'm not certain about this but:

                    It's the BC Court of Appeal, so it will be pretty much binding on all trial judges across Canada. Courts of Appeal in Canada won't be bound by it, but it will carry weight.

                    In countries where this issue of privilege has not yet been decided, (UK, AUS, NZ) it will be considered and may be adopted. There's probably already existing case law on this issue in the states, so the courts there will find that more relevant than in BC.

                    Cheers, thanks amigo! I know a dude in Ontario who was JUST found not guilty about 2 weeks ago, of an alleged sexual assault. This could help get him some financial compensation for 18 months of uncertainty whether he was going to live free or in a cage, and having his name dragged through the mud.

                    Unless he actually has proof she lied, it won't help him much. If it's just a he said /she said thing he's probably out of luck.

                    Check out this article about an unbalanced relationship degenerating into rape accusations and vengeful spear campaign. None of the parties was particularly wise, but this highlights the increasing power of pointing the finger in contemporary public discourse.

                    This legal debate isn't about rape at all. It's about whether ANY police report can be subpoenaed into evidence.

                    So it could have been a false charge of a burglary or a murder, not rape. Or a police report about one thing that affects a trial about a different thing.

                    I think Canada must already have the law to prosecute false rape accusations. But if the guy could not get to the police report, then he couldn't press his case against the bitch.

                    Winning rights makes perfect sense in USA 21st century where up is down and black is white. I need one of those memes "rights, you keep using that word but I don't think it means what you think it means"

                    Unfortunately the guy's life is probably still ruined.

                    Bravo! A small victory in the battle against feminism, but these women must learn that their actions have consequences.

                    This is why I wouldn't ever live in Canada.
