Lying Skank

This is Biurny Peguero Gonzalez.

Gonzalez is a single mother who has admitted to lying in court to convict an innocent man of rape. She was sentenced to 1-3 years in prison by Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Charles Solomon, who has apparently decided to live up to his name. Gonzalez originally lied to placate her friends, who were upset that she had ditched them to accept a ride from her victim, William McCaffrey. [quoted from The Spearhead]

While the MRA circles are lauding the fact that "the wheels are beginning to turn", I voice caution.
Yes, the wheels are turning in that she was given a custodial sentence. BUT with a sentence of only 1-3 years, she will be eligible for parole in less than a year, which means she will have spent a minimal of jail time. Quite in contrast to Mr. McCaffrey who languished in jail for 4 years.

Even worse, where is the mention of compensation for the lost years the man spent in jail at the behest of her lie? Not a single word. The media had a field day with the naming and shaming of the man, but when its comes to payback time, they're blessedly silent.

That is why I will soldier on, in my little corner of the world, here in tropical Singapore, to name and shame these liars. That is the least of what they deserve.

Maybe she'll get it the next time around.
If at all.

Justice would only be served if Ms. Gonzalez and any future Ms.Gonzales were forced to serve the same amount of time in jail as those they wrong fully accused.

Until this day comes nothing has changed in my book.
