Recently the current justice department suggested that if there was wrong doing in the firing of the justices, then these said jusitices were criminally negligent in not reporting the conduct. After all, if it were illegal, as officers of the court, they had a duty to report it, so their firing was justified.
So, then does this mean that if you are raped and do not report it, you are ciminally negligent? Should you be sent to prison for this negligence and perhaps be raped again?
My platform is that if you are doing wrong you are a criminal. If you knowingly don’t report the wrong doing, then yes, you are criminal. However, if the person to whom you would report the wrong doing is the one doing wrong, then perhaps you shouldn’t report the wrong doing and should not be held accountable in the same way as the wrong doer who was doing wrong in the first place. You were merely trying to not exacerbate the threat to you over their wrong doing. This cannot be wrong doing if there is a threat of further wrong doing. Wrong doing is only when you are doing wrong and not when you are doing right or perhaps when you are trying to figure out why they did the wrong doing in the first place.
Ah… my first political speech. What did you think? Should I have used wrong doing a few more times?
