    I think Blasey Ford's testimony today can give outstanding credibility to victims memory. According to the testimony today violent trauma causes permanent imprints on the brain. A scar. So according to this allegations can have and should have more weight in trials. I personally believe that examining and cross examing a victims memory can provide all the proof needed in a violent crimes case.

    Thanks for this. I read more about this in a TIME article tonight. I'm not sure I agree that examining/cross examining a victim's memory can provide all the proof needed in cases, or how the logistics of this could be manifest, but the thought is interesting.

    Not a well thought out conclusion, just a starting point. Lie detectors have been around over a hundred years and specific ambiguities still handicap them. Blasey Ford's explanation of how traumatic situations imprint the brain in a permanent way is old science but now coincidentally timely with " #Me Too". The reality was the GOP side today. Totally down playing the seriousness of the crime.

    I agree a victims recollection is important, but cation is needed because many innocent people have been convicted strictly on mistaken identity, especially when law enforcement rushes to judgement and overly helps traumatized victims identify the wrong man. Identification is much stronger if the victim knows the attacker, but when attacker is a stranger, identification can be mistaken unless the victim can recall specifics like tattoos, scars, and other unique identifiers. Also more likely to be mistaken if the attacker is of a different race.

    The Innocent Project has helped many men get cleared years later through DNA after been identify by the victim as the attacker. This leaves the victim further traumatized that they put an innocent man in prison, while the real attacker remained free.

    Republican women are upset and changing/leaving. They have grown up taught to accept and support chauvinistic behavior. A lady supports her husband.
