So, let me get this straight:Local girl lied about 2001 rape; father set free
In early 2001, an 11-year-old Kalama girl named Cassandra Ann Kennedy told police her dad raped her on at least three occasions. Her father, Thomas Edward Kennedy, denied the allegation, but he was convicted by a jury and sentenced to more than 15 years in prison.
A girl lies about rape... HER OWN FATHER DOES 9 YEARS OF THE HARDEST TIME IMAGINABLE... and she is not going to be charged?
If I had standing (If I lived in Cowlitz) I would be filing a recall petition... today.
Baur said Cassandra Kennedy will not be prosecuted for her apparent lies about her father, partly because prosecutors do not want to discourage people in similar circumstances from coming forward.WHAT "similar circumstances?" Who WANTS those LYING about being raped to "come forward?"
How does failing to hold this woman accountable reduce the liklihood that those slime like her will NOT come forward and lie... especially now that they know they can get away with it?
This kind of sexist bullshit proves this woman to not only be unfit to be a prosecutor, it proves her to be unfit to be a lawyer and unfit to be in elective office.
NINE YEARS OF UNLAWFUL IMPRISONMENT.
NINE YEARS SHE ALLOWED THE AGONY TO GO ON... AND ON.... AND ON.
I can't even begin to imagine what the horrors were this innocent man had to endure... how he was treated in prison for raping his own little girl... the nine years of his life stolen from him because of a lie...
And this scumbag prosecutor won't DO anything about it?
She needs to be gone... today. Right fricking now.
Baur is a disgrace to the legal profession. Her bigoted sexism is inexcusable.
And now, one has to wonder: how many others have been falsely convicted of the same thing for the same reasons? And how does Baur's mishandling of this case REDUCE the likelihood that this kind of crap won't continue?
