    I've seen the exact same evidence you have.

No, but to some extent the vast majority.
    And I'm saying it DOES work for kids/teens too. 100% of the time? No. Nothing does. But, do you have any idea how many schools I went to over years? I encountered this **** from New York, to North Carolina, to Nevada, to Virginia, to WV while in school. It's always worked for me. And, it's worked as an adult too. Though as an adult, I use the "be nice to them" approach much more often.

    You act like I've not actually SEEN it work as a teen. Or experienced it. I have. It DOES work.

    Now, it is kind of irrelevant in this case because discussing what she "should have done" is pretty pointless. The only reason I brought it up was because someone pointedly asked me.

    Okay. I have put my trust in the DA in bringing forth charges that she thinks she can substantiate.

    And that's fine. She is, after all, the professional here.

    But I think these girls are being tried in the media because she knows she couldn't substantiate the claims otherwise.

    I'm willing to let a judge or a jury decide the facts.

    Then why are you even in this thread discussing it in the first place?

    Oh, is there a requirement that I have to not believe that a judge or jury should decide the facts in order to post in this thread? I had no idea.

    No, but there is an expectation that you have something to say about the point of contention rather than "wait and see". You know, like a real argument or something.

    You may proceed to post your stupid little yawny faces and make some statement of victimization before you run away tearfully again.
