It isn’t the speaking tours of evangelical Christians warning of satanic rituals just before he was accused.
It isn’t the appalling behaviour of Senior Officers having relationships with some of the solo mothers during the investigation.
It isn’t the terrible quality of evidence taken from children.
It isn’t the circumstantial nature of the entire case.
It isn’t the selective evidence shown the jury.
It isn’t the paying of ACC payments to anyone who had an allegation and it isn’t that he died before he could clear his name.
The most distressing part of the Peter Ellis miscarriage of justice, is that if those allegations had been made today on twitter, the outcome would have been the same.
In the post #metoo identity politics landscape where allegation is the new evidential threshold and due process is a cis-male privilege, these allegations against Ellis would have been echoed a thousand times by virtue signalling SJWs and he would have been convicted before the trial even began. Again.
The only difference between the Satanic cult hysteria that gripped Christchurch and the current woke rage culture is todays lynch mobs use trigger free torches & micro-aggression policing pitchforks.
We have learnt nothing from the Salem witch trials.
