As of this point in time the verdict is not in whether the Supreme Court Nominee is guilty of rape or not. However, what is official is the character that he has presented whilst going through both the Supreme court hearings as well as the hearings for his rape accusations back in High School.
Regardless of whether Kavanaugh committed the crime or not. I think what a lot of Americans want to see is whether or not he has remorse for what he did. If he did it, come clean and apologize for his actions. He may not win the Supreme court seat but at least some would have hope that there is remorse in America.
On the grounds that Kavanaugh did not commit the crime, we look for the compassion and support for the 1 out of 6 women that are rapped by men in America every year.
We received none of that during his entire testimony.
What we did receive was a man who was more worried about himself than the millions of victims, not just in this country but the entire world.
How can we work with a supreme court judge that gets angry about a past that should have no bearing on his present?
As citizens we have to have a squeaky clean background to get a job. As a citizen when working for law enforcement the back ground checks are extensive. Not only do we have a drug test but we have to go through social checks, credit checks and if we have ties to any “bad” people.
Shouldn't the supreme court judge, who will inevitably judge higher profile cases be able to sit in front of attorneys and jury and be confident about his past without anger and the feeling of being attacked.
The fact that he brushed off the rape case is insight to whether or not he will take women’s issues seriously. As in, “oh this happened to me and it pissed me off, now any rape case that comes in front of me, I’ll not see it through unbiased eyes.”
No one is perfect, but we have the opportunity to resolve our past, repent and come clean on what we have done.
We no longer have people in congress that come clean about what they have done, what they do, or what they will do. This is what upsets so many citizens. Basic human qualities.
