    I come forward and prove he is not the murderer so that the case is not closed and the murderer does not get off.

    And why am I more interested in the TV show than in confronting the man who raped my daughter and forced me to move away?

    There have been a lot of great replies to this thread. Thanks. My first instinct was to keep my mouth shut. However, the fact that a murderer would go free was what changed my view. I would have to speak up. I would probably talk to the guy and tell him I would provide him his alibi if he owned up to the rape. That would be a bluff that I would hope would make him come clean. If it didn't, however, I would still come forward.

    I also disagree that a person who keeps quiet is just as bad as a rapist. I think keeping quiet is a very human thing to do.

    Nice move! I didn't think it that far through. Yes - that's the plan.

    Dude, this whole thread is based upon a hypothetical situation. Just assume that the rapist got off on a technicality. For example: Miranda rights not being read to the guy when he was arrested. Or evidence being lost or some such.

    Yeah, that was where I got hung up. I mighta taken the opportunity to get a little justice, leaving the original murder open as dead people can't commit murder.

    I'm sure this has already been said, but if I happened to run into my daughter's rapist, I'm the one who would need an alibi or a sympathetic jury.

    It's not that you're more interested in the show. It's more like you focus on it in order to avoid a confrontation. Granted not everyone would do that. Some people would scream at him. Some would beat him up. Some would even kill him. It depends on the person. I would avoid even letting him know I was there. I'm a 110 pound woman. If I were aggressive toward a man who's known to be violent, it could get me killed.

    In this theoretical example you know that she raped her. Let's pretend you saw it with your own eyes.


    Even at the expense of someone else being denied their justice and the possibility of more innocent people being killed?
    I clearly said the moral right thing to do is to give him an alibi. I just told what I would do in that situation. It's a very natural response.

    Most murders are either family related or gang related anyway. I might change my mind if this was a serial murder.
