    So, a choice between being honourable and being just?

    Honour's useless, it is the death of otherwise good men.

    Easy....you are sitting back doing nothing and letting an innocent person get convicted. That is just as disgusting of an act as the person who rapes a child.

    He should be able to find evidence that doesn't include said individual for his alibi.

    If he was at a restaurant then he should have a receipt - other witnesses - **** - a life that doesn't require that the individual who was once wronged to be expected to be their friend, now, and defend them in court.

    But I'm lost: how can there be not enough evidence to convict a rapist of a crime that was committed - but not enough evidence to not convict a man of a crime that wasn't committed? Someone see something totally ****ed up with that? . . . That sounds like a failed justice system, to me.

    With the way this is going it sounds like there wouldn't be enough evidence to convict him of a crime he didn't commit anyway.

    And what makes her the one doing wrong by doing nothing? What about this other individual - where is his wrong and right sphere and why isnt' that being questioned?

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    What happens to the real murderer in your scenario? If you tell the truth he may be found and prevented from future crimes. If you lie he goes free. I would prefer to indirectly free the rapist, especially since it seems impossible that I could know with certainty that he was guilty.

    He is not innocent, and even if he was you can not compare it to rape.

    It really saddens me that people like you exists.

    Yeah, people who are honest and resist the urge for revenge and bloodlust are what is wrong with the world.

    I tell the truth, granted, I say that now but I couldn't be certain to say it then. The reason you tell the truth because revenge is no reason to damn yourself (even if you aren't religious guilt is damnation)

    Honor and justice would be on the side of telling the truth. If justice is not honorable then what is the value in it?

    The choice is between justice and revenge.

    No, please don't put words in my mouth.

    We are talking about people who have gotten their daughter raped and the rapist didn't get sent to prison for his actions. He believes that if you don't help the rapist to not end up in prison, then you are just as bad as a child rapist. That's why I get pissed off.

    Eh, I don't think so. I think Justice, as a metaphysical entity (as it were), cares not about the evidence or lack thereof, nor the truths or falsehoods of a case. She only cares for giving everyone their due, and for the rapist who goes free of one crime only to be booked for another he didn't commit -- well, to me, that would satisfy Justice, even if it weren't honourable (truthful).
