    I oppose capital punishment. I don't want Assange executed. I want him reemed. Over, and over and over again. All without condoms.
    Because advocating rape - gang rape, specifically - is so much better...

    From the HeraldSun.com:

    In August, Mr Assange was the key speaker at a seminar on "war and the role of the media" in Stockholm, and met "Sarah", Britain's Daily Mail reports.

    Mr Assange stayed at the apartment of the well-known radical feminist (who can't be named for legal reasons) and during his stay the two had sexual intercourse. It is not disputed by either of them that the condom broke, which is a key aspect of the case, The Australian reports.

    A few days later Mr Assange also met "Jessica", a young woman who sought to meet the activist after the seminar. Jessica alleges that Mr Assange refused to wear a condom during a second sexual encounter between them.

    Swedish law considers unprotected sex as rape but Swedish sources have doubted the credibility of the women, who many people believe set up a "honey trap" for the Australian activist.

    Jessica made contact with Sarah and the two women went to police on August 20 so Jessica could make a complaint against Mr Assange. Both women told their accounts of meeting Mr Assange.

    Based on the allegations of a sabotaged condom in one case and a refusal to wear one in the other, the female interviewing officer believed that Jessica had been raped and Sarah had been sexually molested.
    Thus, what I posted (#203) is essentially correct.

    Assange had consentual sex with a woman who apparently insisted that he wear a condom and later she "discovered" that he didn't.
    The issue of sabotage was the only thing I omitted. Of course, if the condom "broke" which both sides apparently agree happened, it's kinda hard to prove he sabotage it. I guess I can understand where the "abuse" comes in under Swedish law. If Assange forced himself on either of these women the way events unfolded per the other linked articles, then yes, absolutely I'd say he raped them. But if all he did was not wear a condom after saying that he did...

    Kinda seems absurd to me that either woman wouldn't take the time to check before laying down with the man. But then again, I'm a guy. And seeing that I've never tried to pull the old bait and switch where condom use is concerned, I guess I'll never understand this from a woman's perspective.

    Re: Wikileaks founder Julian Assange arrested in London

    So WTH have you guys been talking about for 200+ posts in 22 pages?

    Julian Assange turned himself in.

    He is accused of some sexually-related crime in Sweden.

    Some people want him killed and/or captured, because he released classified info he received from leakers in the US (and other places).

    Other people want to give him a Nobel Peace Prize (I exaggerate), for the same reason.

    No one here has any real clue as to what he actually did in regards to the sex thing.

    No one here has any real clue as to what will actually happen to him, let alone what could (legally) happen to him…

    So sit back and watch the circus.

    What claims did I make, Redress? I asked you to tell me what laws, specifically, he'd broken. You were unable to do so, and waffled on your original stance. Then, you took a shot at me here. That's passive aggressive.

    Actually, I had not considered that. It would be rather apt in my opinion.

    Exactly why it wouldn't really be promoting peace. He's just throwing everyone's dirty laundry out there for the hell of it without much thought of consequences.

    Hopefully he will hang himself in his jail cell tonight.

    Well geez, he's at least done more things of note than the past two recipients.
