Comment of the Day: Lying About Rape
We have some great commenters here on Hair Balls, and it's time we paid some damn attention to them.
So we'll be highlighting a Comment of the Day each morning, from the previous day's work. Maybe two comments, even.
This will all be determined by a highly rigorous scientific formula involving wit, clarity and whatever else we feel like at the moment.
We wrote about a Montgomery County woman who got in an argument with a man and threatened to tell the cops he raped her. She went ahead with her threat and likely thought she had the guy by the balls, until he pulled out a recording for the officers of her making the threat.
One reader noted how such false claims can cause big problems.

You know it is hard enough for women who finally find the courage to report what happened to them to get the police to take them seriously without stupid bitches like this casually throwing around accusations that have no basis in reality. Women like this hurt women like me who have survived sexual assault. What a horrible thing for her to do!
