Admonishments To Disregard Evidence Don't Work

A 2004 dissertation on jury behavior found a similar tendency. When judges told jurors to disregard certain information—once it was deemed secret—the jurors gave it more weight.

speaking of evidence,

since you're an oberlin colelge grad liberal,

how do you feel about the current Oct 8, 2019 calls for Brett Kavanugh impeachment a a rapist and enemy of choice, 1 year anniversary of his nomination


i assume he's one of the far right justices you complained about.

apparently a mere accusation with no evidence is enough to get feminists to say impeach using vulgar and crude language.

where were these feminists when Paula Jones accused Bill Clinton?

do you think feminists have any sense of justice fairness and honor? i don't

There is plenty of evidence that Brett Kavanaugh is a rapist and enemy of choice and that he lied flagrantly during his confirmation hearings.

There are many feminists who are more than happy to condemn Bill Clinton.

What evidence did Christine Ford provide and are you aware the FBI investigated it and found no evidence?

andrew said...

I am aware that the FBI investigation was a farce. She and others provided considerable credible evidence in the Senate hearings to which Kavanaugh's denials were laughable, but for political reasons, he was confirmed anyway.
