Paul Murray brought up how the US Constitution says that crimes must be tried by courts in reference to the college rape tribunals (which we know are a part of the false rape industry. Specifically, he is referring to the end of Article 3, Section 2 of the US Constitution which says:
Trial of all Crimes, except in Cases of Impeachment, shall be by Jury; and such Trial shall be held in the State where the said Crimes shall have been committed; but when not committed within any State, the Trial shall be at such Place or Places as the Congress may by Law have directed.
The only exception to a jury trial for a crime is impeachment. For all other crimes, all citizens of the US are guaranteed a jury trial. Despite what feminists think they can get away with, the constitution makes no exception for rape. The existence of college rape tribunals are in violation of Article 3, Section 2 of the constitution.
Additionally, the sixth amendment is also relevant. It says:
In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defence.
College rape tribunals violate every single clause of the sixth amendment of the constitution. Feminists have declared war on Article 3 & the sixth amendment of the US Constitution. (Feminists have declared war on the entire US Constitution, but that is a subject for another time.) Feminists have been running this war for a long time. First, feminists tried to use the Commerce Clause in the constitution in the first VAWA (violence against women act) to allow women to sue men they accused of rape even when said men had been exonerated by the criminal justice system. For obvious reasons, the courts declared this to be unconstitutional.
Now, feminists are trying to declare rape a “civil rights violation”. Remember that the college rape “tribunals” got started because of a letter to colleges from the Dept. of Education’s Office of Civil Rights. The trick feminists are using is have have men accused of rape not charged with a crime, but a “civil rights violation”. Because these men don’t get charged with an actual crime, they are denied due process. This is a violation of the spirit of our entire legal system and the constitution.
This reminds me of a science fiction TV show from the 90s, Bablyon 5. In that show, the President of the Earth Alliance (all of Earth plus all human colonies) wanted to make himself a dictator. One of the things he did was to create a organization called the Nightwatch which was designed to root out non-“peaceful” behavior. (This could be easily be replaced with civil rights “violations”). Non-“peaceful” behavior conveniently included criticizing the government of the Earth Alliance. The Nightwatch wasn’t involved in the criminal justice system so it did not need to follow the rules of due process. Even people who had joined the Nightwatch questioned this:
Because the Nightwatch was enforcing directives from the Earth Alliance political office (which could be replaced with the Office of Civil Rights easily) due process was thrown out the window until someone was charged with an actual crime. In other words, a person who committed a burglary, for example, would get full due process, but someone who criticized government policy would be dealt with by the Nightwatch who was completely free to ignore due process. The reason for this was that burglars or bank robbers or drug dealers or most criminals weren’t a threat to the coming dictatorship (which happened later in the series). Anyone who spoke out against the government was. Rather than completely take away due process which everyone would notice, they took away due process only in the areas that were relevant to them. This allowed them to hide what they were doing.
Feminists are trying to do the exact same thing. Feminists don’t care about taking away due process from burglars, bank robbers, drug dealers, etc. because the crimes those people commit aren’t crimes where (it is assumed that) women are the victims. On the other hand which something like rape, feminists want due process taken away because they want women to have the power to destroy mens lives just like the Earth Alliance government in Bablyon 5 wanted the power to destroy anyone who criticized them. (It goes without saying that male victims of prison rape won’t benefit from this.) Also, like the Earth Alliance government, not trying to take away due process in general gives feminist the benefit of being able to hide what they are doing (at least until the lawsuits from men start showing up). This is why colleges were chosen to host these “tribunals”. By starting them on college campuses, most people wouldn’t be in a position to notice them especially since they wouldn’t have a broader effect on due process.
On Babylon 5 the endgame of the Nightwatch was to merge it with regular security/police (which happened). Similarly, the feminist endgame to the college rape “tribunals” is to merge them into the government as a “civil rights” court and enforcement system where due process is ignored since it is not a criminal court. Such a thing is a violation of the US Constitution and needs to be destroyed before it can even be created.
