    A refugee adjudicator in Canada is under fire for saying she did not believe a woman’s report of rape because she chose not to abort the child who was conceived as a result. The adjudicator, a female, Sarwanjit Randhawa, repeatedly asked the woman, “If you’re raped, why would you keep a child of rape?” According to an article in Global News, the survivor said “it was her first child and she is against abortion. She also said she knows what it’s like to grow up without parents and that it isn’t the baby’s fault how she was conceived.” This was...

    Snoop Dogg said Saturday he wasn't threatening CBS News anchor Gayle King over a recent interview in which she broached the Kobe Bryant rape case following his death last week. The clarification comes after CBS News president Susan Zirinsky said the network "fully supports" King while vigorously condemning “reprehensible” threats made against King. "When I said what I said, I spoke for the people who felt like Gayle was very disrespectful towards Kobe Bryant and his family," Snoop Dogg, whose real name is Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr., said in a video on Instagram on Saturday. "Now with that being said,...

    Liza Sejkora is the now-former principal from Camas, Washington, who made national headlines after suggesting on Facebook that she felt Kobe Bryant had deserved to die. She resigned from her position at Camas High School after receiving multiple threats. Bryant, his 13-year-old daughter Gianna, and seven others were killed in a helicopter crash on January 26, 2020. Hours after the news broke, Sejkora wrote on her Facebook page, “Not gonna lie. Seems to me that karma caught up with a rapist today.” Sejkora was referring to the 2003 case in which Bryant was accused of sexually assaulting a 19-year-old woman...

    Can we come out now? Is it safe, yet, to speak or write the truth? Or is it still too soon? Since the sudden, tragic death of Kobe Bryant two weeks ago, I’ve thought of the many men who, in just the past three years, have had their careers and reputations destroyed or seriously stained by allegations of sexual harassment or assault. Among them: Actors Scott Baio, Gerard Depardieu, Morgan Freeman. In TV, Tavis Smiley, Les Moonves, Matt Lauer. Noted astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, famous chef Mario Batali, opera star Placido Domingo. Minnesota Senator/comedian Al Franken was forced to resign...

    A WOMAN confronted the man she accused of raping her when she spotted him with his wife in a Worcester cafe, a court heard. The woman, who cannot be identified, gave evidence from the witness box at Worcester Crown Court yesterday, telling the jury that Richard Hirschfield raped her on a fire escape in the city 22 years ago. Declining the use of a screen, the complainant said she was 16 and a ‘vulnerable’ and ‘troubled’ girl when she was raped outside the former Midland Shire Farmers building in The Butts in July 1998. But the 43-year-old defendant of Dilmore...

    A man has been charged after a five-year-old girl was allegedly raped on the premises of the US embassy in Delhi. The 25-year-old was arrested at the high-security mission in the Indian capital on Sunday after the girl’s family complained of the sexual assault, which allegedly took place on Saturday at the living quarters for local housekeeping staff , the investigating officer, Yogesh Kumar, told AFP on Thursday. Kumar said preliminary medical tests confirmed the girl had been raped. The man was charged under child rape laws, which carry the death penalty. The sprawling diplomatic compound is one of the...

    The University of Connecticut expelled a male student for an allegedly nonconsensual sexual encounter with a female student. But now a judge has issued a temporary restraining order to halt the student's removal, on the grounds that the university's investigation was wildly unfair. The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) has obtained a transcript of the court proceeding, which took place on January 23. As it shows, U.S. District Judge Michael Shea was especially perturbed that UConn did not interview key witnesses who would have undermined the accuser's credibility. "I am troubled by aspects of this procedure," said Shea,...

    An attention-getting new billboard on I-25 between Albuquerque and Santa Fe, New Mexico, recently tested a new strategy of pro-abortion outreach. The billboard, clearly meant to shock, reads, “Rape is about power and control. So are abortion bans.” Another billboard, placed on the side of a truck which circled New Mexico’s Capitol building as well as in downtown Santa Fe last week bore the messages, “Voted against abortion access? We didn’t forget,” and “Keep abortion safe and legal.” ProgressNow New Mexico, a group fighting to keep abortion legal in the state, is the group behind the billboards. Marianna Anaya, the...

    At the time of his passing, Kobe Bryant was, by all accounts, a wonderful husband and father. His death is tragic, for his family and fans. A period of national mourning is wholly appropriate. Washington Post reporter Felicia Sonmez was suspended by her paper for tweeting about the rape case Bryant battled in 2003, hours after his death. The Post said Sonmez’s suspension came because her tweets did not “pertain” to her “coverage area,” and because her “behavior on social media is making it harder for others to do their work as Washington Post journalists.”This is a story with many...

She posted a link to an April 2016 story from the news site The Daily Beast which carried the headline: ‘Kobe Bryant’s Disturbing Rape Case:...

    Local and state governments in the United States and other nations have been banning counseling individuals to get rid of unwanted same-sex attractions. But there's one population that's being injured each time that happens. Rape victims. Male rape victims. In the United States, more than a dozen states or local governments have moved to suppress information that counselors could provide to those victims. Recently, officials in the city of Tampa, Florida, appealed a federal judge's decision to block an ordinance prohibiting the counseling of children who seek help overcoming same-sex attractions.

    A DNA match has led to a Florida man prosecutors suspect is the “pillowcase rapist” responsible for numerous sexual assaults of women in the Miami area during the 1980s. Robert Koehler, 60, was arrested over the weekend in Brevard County and was being held without bond Thursday after his transfer to a Miami jail. He faces charges in one assault though authorities say as many as 25 victims could be involved. Miami-Dade State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle said it will take time to locate victims and determine if there is enough evidence to prosecute all of these cases. The rapes...

    Federal immigration officials, after blaming the city’s sanctuary policy for a 92-year-old woman’s rape and murder, were blasted Tuesday by City Hall for using the tragedy to trumpet their immigration agenda. The NYPD ignored a federal request to turn over an undocumented Guyanese immigrant busted in November for assaulting his father, leaving the twisted suspect free to kill helpless nonagenarian Maria Fuentes six weeks later, charged Thomas Decker, field office director for the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement removal operations. “Clearly the politicians care more about criminal illegal aliens than the citizens they are elected to serve and protect," said...

    Over two years after the first exposés on Harvey Weinstein and allegations of rampant sexual harassment and assaults were first published, the Oscar-winning producer’s criminal trial is set to begin today in New York City, kind of. If found guilty of the five felony charges that he faces based on allegations from two women and indictments from a grand jury convened by District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr., the 67-year-old Weinstein could face life in prison in what is the first major trial of the #MeToo era.
