We all know those on a jury carry their own experiences into the jury room. We are seeing much the same in the debate over Kavanaugh’s character and how it might affect the Supreme Court.
Women, who have been victims of sex related incidents, minor or major, carry scars that may have them identifying with Dr. Ford. Men who have been guilty, or are wondering if they have been, may be identifying with Kavanaugh. So the conflict.
Regardless of how it turns out, we all need to look at our lives and how our actions will be judged. I wonder if things would have gone differently if Kavanaugh had said, “I do not remember this happening, but if I did something to hurt you, I am SO SORRY.”
There will be no winner, and the biggest losers are the American people.
