I'm gonna dump all this at once, I've not posted anything on facebook or twitter or whatever, because it's so complex, but trusting our little community here, here's my rant-like opinion;
For me, Putting energy into undermining our country's legal systems, instead of fixing it is a HUGE problem and dangerously misguided.
The jury found the guys not guilty.
If they are not guilty they are not guilty, and if you don't like it, tough shit! The correct course of action for disliking is to educate yourself and then start a revolution from a position of truth, strength and justice.
Trials aren't celebrity big brother; you don't get to phone in at the end and "vote" for a winner with "your opinion" this is specifically why you cannot watch court proceedings on TV.
Arranging "rallies in general" is how you change the minds of big business, because they need to be popular with us so we will obediently give them our money in exchange for their products. If a business is unpopular it fails.
The LAW doesn't need please people, it's not a popularity contest. Don't confuse Revolutions with something that starts and end with public popularity.
Public opinion is a factor, but the changes happen elsewhere, and it is designed intentionally thus, i.e., "Justice is blind", otherwise law would simply be "mob rule".
People go on about "but they are still horrible people" to which the answer is "yes they do indeed seem to be horrible people".
But it is not illegal to be a horrible person, and I find it very depressing seeing so many people rallying "in general" with a tone that those men being found not guilty of rape means "no one believed that SHE thought she was raped" or that morally, those men should've been responsible for what they did to her (it is ovbious to a brick wall that they were morally responsible for what they've done).
The correct course of action (IMO);
If we as a nation are disgusted that these men could do this to a young girl (and we seem to be!) and for that not to be a crime, then we need to make it so that doing what they did that IS a crime. The rallies ought to be "this WAS rape" or "this ought to be deemed rape" not "I believe her".
It is going down the wrong avenue to push for popular support or undermining the result of a trial adjudicated by a qualified judge (who was female btw, but that's neither-here-nor-there) and perfectly normal jury with a message like "I believe her".
Our Country's legal system deemed it not to be rape, that happened, and it is our law.
Tough shit if that makes you feel bad, but if that makes you feel bad and you wish it was otherwise, then we need to change our country's legal system to define rape in a way which includes what this girl went through.
It is not a question of believing her, or popular outrage, but one of legal definition of sexual assault and responsibility.
You FIX legal system not undermine them. If this need explaining to you, then you're a moron, and no one will take your views on trials seriously, even if they are well intended and morally righteous.
