    Man Wrongly Imprisoned For Rape Forgives Accuser

    From WSMV-TV:

    Man Wrongly Imprisoned For Rape Forgives Accuser

    Jennifer Thompson-Cannino was a 22-year-old college student
    in North Carolina in 1984 when she was raped at knifepoint. She
    tried to memorize her attacker's face.

    "If I lived, I wanted to be able to take my memory to the police,"
    Thompson-Cannino told Channel 4.

    The composite sketch done by the police lead them to arrest
    Ronald Cotton, also 22 years old.

    Thompson-Cannino picked him out of a line-up. Cotton was
    convicted of rape and sentenced to life plus 54 years, all the while claiming his innocence.

    "It was like I was in a dream,” said Cotton. “I took my hand and pinched myself and felt the pain, and said, this is no dream, this is real."

    Eleven years later, a DNA test showed another man was the real rapist. Cotton was set free.

    "I stood on the courthouse steps, pumped my fist in the air, said, ‘free at last,’ lifted my head back, and said, ‘Good Lord, where do I go from here?’" he said.

    But for Thompson-Cannino, everything she had believed for more than a decade was suddenly swirling like a snow globe.

    "It would be as if someone looked at you and said, 'Your children, these kids that you've loved, for 10 years, 20 years, that you've taken care of, they're really not yours. They're the neighbor's kids,"' she said.

    Feeling suffocating shame and guilt, Thompson-Cannino asked to meet Cotton.

    "We cried together, hugged one another, me and my wife hugged and cried, a lot of shared emotions there, at that particular time and moment," Cotton said.

    The two have written a best-selling book together called "Picking Cotton."

    At Trevecca Nazarene College Wednesday night, they told a story of how through grace and mercy they became friends and moved on with their lives.

    "We have shared a part of our lives, the most traumatic part, the most dangerous, the most painful, and somehow were able to transcend it, to where we care about each others' lives and well-being," Thompson-Cannino said.

    "The one scenario I didn't bank on, was him forgiving me. And that's exactly what happened," she said.

    I know that I digress from the spirit of a tragic story, however I couldn't help but point out how this interestingly this statement parallels another important men's rights issue. Someone should ask this woman how she feels about paternity fraud.
    Do not ever suppose that a small group of people can never change the world. INDEED it is the only thing that ever has.

    The DNA,only show's that she had sex with another man,not that she was raped,that has yet to be tested in a court of law,the women has already shown herself to be a unreliable witness.

    A whole plethora of excuses currently expedite female false accusers from their detestable sins, must we add forgiveness as yet another alternative incentive to culpability and moral reprehension?

    As one individual man pardons his false accuser, he indirectly lends credence to the idea - which indirectly weakens the defence of the next accused man.
    The wicked flee when none pursueth. Proverbs 28:1

    'Rise like Lions after slumber In unvanquishable number - Shake your chains to earth like dew Which in sleep had fallen on you - Ye are many - they are few.'

    Percy Bysshe Shelley

    "When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty. "
    Thomas Jefferson

    Cotton is the ideal patsy for feminits or is he suffering from PTSD;

    begs the question just how many innocent men are doing hard time after being fingered by a hysterical to spiteful wimyn


    "..Feeling suffocating shame and guilt, Thompson-Cannino asked to meet Cotton. ..'''

    she would be feeling the same emotions as the exposed Hofstra liar aka 'drat !!"

    cotton done eleven years of his life which we all know is not a dress rehersal; I figure if cotton had had recourse to expensive legal counsel the wimyns lie agin him would have be blown out the water - but being a poor man he got "justice"

    the Duke Lacrosse students would have been doing hard time too except their folk had the financial wherewithal to refute the crass lies agin them

    this injustice against cotton illustrates the alacrity with which the rape police want to pin the rape tail on their selected donkey

    I would be looking for a deal with a good attorney with a view to compensation for the false imprisonment and the years of my life stolen in some stinking gaol
