I haven't written much but that's because I'm trying to figure the words to express what I feel about the arrest of Dominque Strauss-Kahn (DSK). I'm stunned! I can't believe that DSK put himself in that position for no matter whether he is guilty or not, he knows enough about the world not to put himself in a situation where he can be accused of something as vile as this. I have no opinion on the case, but I have to say that I'm hoping against hope and reality that there will be a Perry Mason moment when the truth becomes evident.
However, since I know a tiny bit more about the law than the ordinary person, I made the bet on my french blog, that he would lose his political career, but that he wouldn't do any jail time. Why? Because the alleged victim is going to be to trial as is always the case in sex crimes cases involving famous people. In short, it is a tragedy of epici proportion for some doubt will always remain no matter what the evidence shows and what the outcome is.
