Kevin Driscoll Is Innocent
In January 2009, Kevin Driscoll of Redmond Oregon was charged
with three counts of rape, one count of unlawful sexual penetration, one
count of sodomy and one count of assault IV.
who accused him was an acquaintance of his. It is alleged that
she has a
history of dishonesty, of making false accusations - in one case, another
allegation of rape - and of continually
cheating on her husband.
Indeed, there is a video of her giving a man
(not her husband) a hand job in a car park just before the alleged rape by
and, indeed, a video of her calmly and freely getting into Kevin
Driscoll's car with Kevin Driscoll himself, only some two hours after his alleged raping of her.
long prior to her alleged rape, she was cavorting naked with two or three
men in a hot tub.
There is no significant evidence that any rape
occurred. Kevin Driscoll denies vehemently that he raped her, but he
concurs that he did have consensual sex with her prior to driving her to
her car, which was parked a few miles away.
He has no history of dishonesty. No history of abusing anybody.
there is not a shred of decent evidence to suggest that Kevin Driscoll
might have raped this woman.
And yet, here we are, October 2009, ten
months later, and the situation for Kevin Driscoll - whose trial is due in
November - is described by one of his friends as follows.
you read about what has happened to Kevin Driscoll since he was accused,
let us just assume for the moment that all the evidence above is
completely fabricated by his friends and that, in essence, this is just a
he said/she said situation.
Look at what happens to a man who is merely
Angie says: Kevin is 30 and is very successful. Kevin had
been working with the Federal aviation Administration for over 8 years. He
was a Electrical Engineer that worked on landing systems at the airport.
Kevin was also attending college again to pursue a career as a medical
He was planning on applying for medical school in the next few
Since this all happened he lost his Job.
The company from day one put him on leave until they gave it enough
time so they can fire him. He has had to drop out of school because he is
on house arrest.
Dont know if this blows his chance of ever getting into medical
school. Hope not for his sake. He has had to pay for house arrest at the
cost of $400 a month just so he can stay out of jail.
I hear his house is going into forclosure and is going to lose it.
His friends alienated him after seeing it on the news. I hear his negibors
talk about him being the negiborhood rapist.
I know his mother
gave up her job of 15 years and moved right in to kevins house because he
could only be release with a ankle bracelet and Third party (His mom) I
know his mom and kevin has dumped every penny they have.
I talked to his mom and she just filed bankrupt and Kevin is going
to have to soon. I hear this is up around 50, 000 dollars so far.
And what all men need to understand is that this shocking
treatment of an innocent man (and he is supposed to be
treated as if he was innocent by the
justice system - until, and if, he is proved otherwise) is applicable to
all men - at the whim of
But you, me and the
law, are supposed to view Kevin Driscoll as an innocent man.
means treating him as such; not just
paying lip service to the notion of "innocent until proven guilty" while,
behind everybody's back, he is treated as if he was guilty.
words, as I write this piece, Kevin Driscoll IS
Innocent as far as I am concerned, and also as far as you and
the justice system should be concerned.
And there is just no
way that what is being done to Kevin Driscoll can be called 'justice' - particularly by those who are
working within the justice system.
On the contrary, these legal officials have to
be some of the most morally corrupt officials that we have dwelling amongst us
And the pathetic excuse that, "We are only doing our jobs," is even more
inexcusable than was the one used by the Nazis who ran the concentration camps
and who claimed later that they were, "only following orders."
At least, in the latter case, you
might have been shot
or sent to the war front for failing to carry out orders.
Not so for people like Michael Dugan, the District Attorney, and Jody
Stutsman Vaughan, the deputy.
No-one is pointing a gun at them.
really am very sorry to have to use such language to describe those
officials who are part of this process, but, in my view, any human being
who willfully hurts innocent others so horribly - seriously messing up their
future lives - cannot get much lower.
Indeed, even most people who end
up in prison rarely
sink as low as this.
And the chances are that Michael Dugan and Jody
Vaughan are mostly interested in their careers, rather than with anything
to do with justice.
By prosecuting `as many men as possible, they can
show their voters just how tough they are on crime.
messing up the lives of innocent men is what these legal officials are quite prepared to do
- especially if they can portray themselves as the heroic protectors of
Think about it.
There can be no other reason for them doing
what they are doing to Kevin Driscoll - unless they also get some perverse
sadistic pleasure out of doing such things.
Either way; they must be
deeply unpleasant characters, in my view.
After all, people who mess up
the lives of innocent others can surely not be regarded as anything else
but deeply unpleasant.
No doubt, if Michael Dugan and Jody Vaughan were
to read this article, they would protest and try to claim that they are
merely trying to protect women.
But no-one is criticising them for such
If they want to protect women, fine. They can even put them in
safehouses if they appear to be vulnerable.
But what should be
completely unacceptable to everybody is for Michael Dugan and Jody Vaughan
to treat so appallingly men who have not been convicted of anything, and
whose histories do not appear to suggest that they are a threat to
And, "We are just doing our jobs," has to be one of the lamest
and most feeble of excuses imaginable.
The media reporting of this
alleged rape was no less prejudicial, apparently.
According to a
USObserver article, News Channel 21 and local TV KOHD (ABC News) simply
tried to whip up rape hysteria among the local community when it came to
this alleged rape.
As is typical of many journalists currently working in the mainstream
media, they demonised a man who was accused of sexual crimes simply in
order to keep their readers sexually aroused and titillated.
are nothing more than sleaze merchants who will harm other people simply
in order to make an extra buck.
What we see going on here is a complete
and utter corruption of the justice system; a truly sickening indictment
not only of the system itself, but of those people who run it, and of
those scavengers in the media business who seek to profit themselves by
stirring up hatred towards a man who has not been found guilty of
And for MRAs reading this; please, please, please try to
understand that this disgusting state of affairs is only being maintained
because of the greed and the self-serving dishonesty of those who run the
And if we continue to allow these thoroughly corrupt individuals
to get away with what they are doing, matters will simply get worse before
we finally dethrone them - which we will.
Think about it.
You can lose
EVERYTHING that you hold to be dear, just because officials like Michael
Dugan and Jody Vaughan are prepared to take it all away from you in order
keep their fancy jobs, and all because some woman - even one with no credibility
at all - has made a sexual allegation.
And if they are God-fearing people
- which such officials in America usually proclaim themselves to be - then I can assure
them that, "I was only doing my job," will not fool anyone who has any
decent religious values.
Indeed, the castigation and vilification of all
those people who willfully hurt innocent others has been common throughout
all of the major religions across the
world for the past two thousand years.
It is about the only thing that religious people throughout the whole of
recorded history have ever agreed
Why? Because it makes such good sense, because it is
right, and because we can
never live in decent societies if
people are permitted to hurt innocent others with impunity.
High-And-Mighty Michael Dugan and Ms Princess Lofty Jody Vaughan clearly
think that they are exempt from such morality.
They clearly believe that
this global, planetary-wide, moral imperative - to refuse to willfully
harm innocent people - does not apply to them.
They must believe
themselves to be superior beings; even though their behaviour suggests
that the complete opposite is true.
And, surely, if they think that it is OK to seriously harm
innocent people in pursuit of their aims, then they can have
no legitimate complaint if people decide to harm them in pursuit of their
themselves, are no longer innocent.
On the contrary, they have been
breaking just about the most important moral code ever to have existed on
And we need to stop them; because we should never allow
such people to have so much power over us, and we should certainly never
allow morally-corrupt officials anywhere near our justice system.
People who are prepared to harm seriously innocent others in
pursuit of their self-serving aims - especially so when alternative routes
are available - are morally corrupt.
