Use your New York common sense: Weinstein lawyers to jurors

Use your New York common sense: Weinstein lawyers to jurors

Closing arguments were begun by the defense team of Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein on Thursday. Mr. Weinstein’s lawyers urged jurors to ’use your New York common sense’ and find Mr. Weinstein not guilty. Donna Rotunno, the defense attorney said that prosecutors had failed to meet their burden of proving that Mr. Weinstein had committed five sex crimes.

When it comes to ol' Harvey, I sort of agree. He never really "raped" any of them. They had consensual sex with him in order to further their careers. He's a pig, for sure, but they all sucked that dick willingly.

I don't know what actually went on. Did he force himself on them or did he tell them they'd have no career if he did so? While both are bad, the approach is different. Here's my opinion. If every woman refused to play along, wouldn't this practice eventually go away? Even that aside, it's not only women who end up on the casting couch. I just think it's less prevalent.

I wonder if he'll get any sympathy points for that walker he all of a sudden uses to and from court.

Kinda sad that the industry involved casted a veil over the coercion for so long.
