Let’s for a second ignore the fact that I think fame whores deserve everything they get and contemplate the accusations made by reality-tv personality Tila Tequila against NFL player Shawne Merriman.
It is unfortunate that some women are able to undermine the process by making false claims. It is unfortunate that today’s society automatically assumes that a person is guilty unless proven otherwise, and in cases such as this, even if the claims are absolutely false, the damage is already done.
Now cases like this are tried in two courts… that of public opinion and in the justice system, and I don’t have to tell you which one matters most to the American people.
It is sad… and Superbowl appearance and win by my chargers is slightly less probable today than it was last week.
For the record, I don’t believe Tila Tequila’s claim. Both the responding officers and emergency medical personnel didn’t find any truth to that whore’s claims. Because she made a citizens arrest, the police were legally bound to take Merriman into custody.
