    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.

    Agreed. That's what makes it case-by-case. But then all criminal accusations should be.

    The reason Senator Black is getting heat on this is because he doesn't know how you can get a conviction....but so far neither does anyone in this thread.

    How stupid does one have to be to assume that a rape causes no injury when the rapist is the victims spouse?

    If you can prove rape, then that's rape, it's still a crime, why should there be a different charge if you're married to the victim?

    The trick is proving it in court.

    There are all kinds of other crimes that can be charged. Rape doesn't need to be one of them unless the couple is legally separated or living separately.
