The left has spread this cult-like position with the #MeToo movement and with the Kavanaugh confirmation hearing that one must “Believe all women.” And of course, that’s ridiculous. Both men and women lie, both men and women are mistaken or have memories and impressions that play them false. What of course should prevail is the evidence which depends on the facts of each case. As another example, this time on a high school level has just shown.
Several high school girls decided to gang up on a boy and invented false stories about sexual assault against him because they “just didn’t like him.”
From Daily Wire:
Now the boy’s parents, Michael J. and Alicia Flood, are suing the parents of the five girls and the Seneca Valley School District in Pennsylvania over their son’s treatment. They say in their 26-page lawsuit their son “was forced to endure multiple court appearances, detention in a juvenile facility, detention at home, the loss of his liberty, and other damages until several of the girls reluctantly admitted that their accusations were false.”
Their son is now being homeschooled due to the bullying he received, including signs taped to his back without his knowledge that said “predator,” according to the lawsuit which was filed last week.
“[The boy] was basically being tortured in school by other students and investigators, but the administration was only focused on protecting the girls who were lying,” the Floods’ attorney, Craig Fishman, told Penn Live. “Once the allegations were proven false, they didn’t really care one bit about [the male student] and there has been absolutely no repercussions against the girls.”
The facts of the case are horrible.
The lawsuit states the girl told classmates in October 2017 “she would do anything to get [the boy] expelled” so she accused him of sexually assaulting her at the pool. A friend of K.S. who worked at the pool, Megan Villegas, claimed she was present during the assault. Villegas is the only named defendant and is a graduate of Seneca Valley High School, where the other students attend.
It worked, as the boy was charged with indecent assault and two counts of harassment based on the girl’s word. The boy and his parents agreed to a consent decree that allowed him to avoid admitting guilt and required him to stay out of trouble for six months while on probation.
Several months later, in March 2018, a friend of the first accuser, identified only as C.S., claimed the boy entered her house without her permission and sexually assaulted her. Two more friends, identified as E.S. and H.R., backed up her claim. In April, the accused student was charged with another indecent assault, criminal trespass, and simple assault.
He was expelled and arrested and identified as a threat to his community. He spent nine days in a juvenile detention center and then placed on house arrest.
“After 28 days, [the boy] was only allowed out of his home to mow his lawn,” the lawsuit states.
Later in May, three of the girls then admitted they had lied, but it took several more months to dismiss the charges against the boy.
According to the lawsuit, not only haven’t the charges been expunged off his record, nothing has happened to the girls who lied. They haven’t been charged or received any punishment from the school. And the boy is understandably suffering psychological trauma as a result of everything.
The school claims the suit has no merit and they followed all relevant rules and laws. “The number-one priority of the Seneca Valley School District is the safety and well-being of our students, staff, parents, and volunteers who enter our buildings,” a statement said.
Well, it wasn’t so safe for the well-being of the boy.
After the girls admitted they lied, how can the school take no action against the girls?
But this is just one example of a false accusation and how it can damage someone’s life. And at least they admitted it and he wasn’t accused on a national stage before millions of people, to go into his history and trail him forever.
