There’s generally three questions I want answered, wherever someone wants “the predator burned at the stake”…
1) Were you present, when and where the alleged event(s) took place?
2) Do you personally know any of the people alleged to have been involved?
3) Where did you get your information?
If you were not there, then you have no first hand knowledge of the alleged events.
If you don’t know any of the people allegedly involved, then you don’t even have a credible second hand account.
If you got your information from one of countless rumor mills…well…then you have nothing of concrete value, to base any conclusion on.
So much of the talk that gets bantered about, wherever the “Kevin Spacey” of the moment is being crucified by public opinion, adds up to little more than vicious, uninformed nattering…And often it’s an expression of hatred for sexual minorities, couched in the veneer of “outrage over public [child] safety”.
The main reason why I stubbornly resist accepting accusations of this nature as true, especially early on…is because most of the talk going on, is just unsubstantiated repetition of those accusations…by people who themselves don’t know what factually happened.
For some reason…it seems most people have a strange disposition, to accept whatever talk is fed to them, without a critical mind to filter it with.
Kevin Spacey may prove to be a terrible person, before all is said and done…or maybe he’ll be exonerated…I don’t know…
…And my point is…You don’t know either, unless you’re part of that finite, micro sliver of the human population, that had to spend time around Kevin Spacey.
It’s not a defense of Kevin Spacey, for me to say any of this.
So many people deem themselves “authoritative” to say anything about these kinds of cases, immediately following an accusation…when those people don’t know anything, other than the accusation…and they could never confirm, the legitimacy of the accusation.
It would be quite interesting to see…just how these very same people weathered it…should they one day suddenly find themselves at the center of a life destroying, public firestorm…the likes of which they presently engage in, without thought or care.
