    Just because a bad practice "happens all the time" does not mean that it should be permitted to continue without opposition. Any practice that is carried out that undercuts a presumption of innocence is a bad one.

    If Mr. Strauss-Kahn is acquitted or the case is dropped, I believe he should seek substantial damages from NYC, the NYC Police Department, and the officers who participated in parading him before the media and public in handcuffs. Were he to win damages that were sufficiently sizable, that award might create a disincentive for a continuation of a practice that, quite frankly, contributes nothing to the nation's rule of law framework.

    Good point man... my thought of this is NY has a new DA, Morgenthau had been there for over 30 years, and Cy vance wanted his time to shine, but he ended up ****ing up bigtime.

    It's difficult to know for sure whether the allegations are true or not. I am more inclined to believe that he was set-up in a honeypot sting. The powers that be wanted Strauss-Kahn out of the IMF. It doesn't matter whether the charges stick or not. That wasn't the point. The point was to remove him from IMF and/or install Christine Lagarde. Lagarde is now the head of the IMF and the Stauss-Kahn incident begins to fall apart. Mission accomplished. A scenario entirely possible.

    It was probably the French conservative party's doing. Lagarde is a conservative minister and Strauss-Kahn is a socialist. Everything works out fine for the French conservative party if you ask me. Sarkozy's big opponent is out, she's in the IMF, and Strauss-Kahn is ruined. I hope for his sake he pulls out of this and beats Sarkozy's pussy ass.

    Re: Strauss-Kahn Case Seen as in Jeopardy

    I'm inclined to believe about anything at this point. Certainly a politically-motivated setup, given Strauss-Kahn's reputation for unwanted sexual advances. The whole thing reeks.

    As for Strauss-Kahn having a lawsuit against NYC, that's ridiculous. He was not treated any differently than any other high-profile suspect with an international passport and the means to use it. Maybe he should spend some of his fortune to investigate just who set him up, and why... presuming he is innocent of rape, which I doubt anyone except he and the maid will ever know for certain.

    If this is a political plot, I wish the Europeans would keep such unpleasant shenanigans on their own continent.

    It could have been Sarkozy. I'm inclined to think it was perhaps related to the fact that Strauss-Kahn had been advocating the IMF Special Drawing Rights to replace the dollar as reserve currency. American Corpgov wouldn't do such a thing? Oh, hell yes. Elliott Spitzer, Julian Assange. It's entirely possible Sarkozy may have been more than happy to assist or to stand aside (wink, wink, nudge, nudge).

    If you are going to set someone up you are best served to play to their weaknesses. Strauss-Kahn is rumored to have been a randy Frenchman. It makes sense you'd set him up using a third world chamber maid. It isn't that difficult as long as she's in on it. It appears she was. Hell, SK, didn't even need to touch her. As you say, just the two of them present. No one saw a thing. As he had stayed in the hotel a few days DNA would not have been difficult to collect and plant. She could have torn her own pantyhose and bruised her own vagina. Unless there was sperm collected from her person that was determined to be his I believe his guilt would be difficult to prove considering the information coming out about the victim. We don't know. I certainly don't know. Given what we have been told I believe it was a set-up.

    I'm not saying SK was a stand up guy.

    As for Strauss-Kahn having a lawsuit against NYC, that's ridiculous. He was not treated any differently than any other high-profile suspect with an international passport and the means to use it.

    I agree. If he was set-up he bloody well knows the people involved are well above the City of New York.

    If this is a political plot, I wish the Europeans would keep such unpleasant shenanigans on their own continent.
    I hear you but we have no right to point fingers. America has done much, much, much worse in many countries of the world.

    Here's the letter from the DA's office.

    Whatever HE is, this woman is a complete fraud. Read and see. I really hope she is deported. I admit I got sucked in on this one. I believed her. UGHHH......
