    If I was a third party and was offered money, I would take the money. Jokes on them, I don't care to begin with lol.

    If I was the one that was raped, I would still take the money. Then when the person thought they were safe I would go back and brutally rape them. **** would be so cash.
    I don't have proof for any of this, but you have to wonder.

    ... privately mediated financial compensation for crimes between the criminal and the victim is an underrated mechanism for achieving justice. I wouldn't necessarily encourage or approve of a woman accepting it depending on the context, but as solutions to being wronged go its worth considering.

    Thing is, our justice system generally allows the victim to have both jail time for the perp and generous financial recompense ... although I suppose there is no guarantee of victory.

    It would depend on how much money it was, but for enough money I'd stay quiet about it. It would have to be a lot of money though.

    I mean heck, if I had enough money, I could easily hire someone to go kill the rapist and make it look like an accident. I could have my cake and eat it too.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    If it is the rapist bribing me then the answer is no.If it is the victim bribing me then the answer depends on how long ago it happened and or how compelling of a case the victim is making for me to not say anything.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I don't consider myself as the victim type and I have to look at myself in the mirror. Given the change the guy might do it to someone else, I'd nail the bastard any way I could, starting with not compromising whatever evidence there is.

    Hey, there is an idea. Take the money, have your appearance cosmetically altered, then hit on him at a bar, take him home and shorten him a few inches. That would work.

    Would I keep silent regarding someone else's rape for money? No.

    Would I keep silent regarding my own rape for money? If I was poor and there was little to no chance of a conviction occurring, maybe. If the accusation would destroy my life because he was a man of power and influence and nobody would believe me, maybe.

    What "TV serial" were you watching?? I wouldn't take the bribe and I wouldn't tell my husband. He would kill him, and I don't say that jokingly.
