She must be believed?

Andrew L. Urban.

There is a special place in hell for women who do things like Sarah Jane Parkinson (pictured), the Canberra woman jailed for making false accusations of rape and domestic violence against her ex boyfriend Daniel Jones – who ended up in jail before a good cop – a female – found Parkinson out. That place in hell is full of furious feminists whose anti-male campaign is undermined if not destroyed by such women’s malicious actions.  Indeed, Parkinson’s case shows why ‘she’ must NOT be believed – without evidence.

This vicious, dishonest misbehaviour is not a good fit with the #MeToo movement. Parkinson (left) is not alone. Other cases of women lying to destroy lives (not just of the men involved but their entire families) have reached us through our work at wrongfulconvictions.org and my book Murder by the Prosecution.

One has already been through the courts with a disastrously wrongful conviction & jail time, prompting a lawyer to draft (pro bono) a 70 page deconstruction to show the man’s innocence and the woman’s blatant lying. Another case – involving serious violence resulting in her target man’s lifelong disability – is making its way through the courts. (His disability was not caused by her, just to be clear.)

The man who was jailed reports having met other men in similar situations – having had false allegations against them by women. We might be cynical and shrug, dismissing those prisoners as being sorry to have been caught, but that really would damn us all with ethical blindness. There is no doubt that women are capable of causing life-long damage to males through false allegations. That should be no more tolerated than false allegations about anything.

The sobering revelation in Kate Legge’s excellent article (Web of Lies, The Weekend Australian Magazine, Feb. 2/3, 2019) exploring this case is about the culture in the ACT legal system, as outlined by Daniel’s father, Ian, in a victim impact statement to Magistrate Beth Campbell: Ian made the most of his opportunity to roast police, lawyers and judges for their part in this gross injustice, blaming incompetence and an “anti-male bias” that extended Parkinson “every consideration and courtesy at every single appearance, allowing her to delay, obfuscate and try every trick her legal team could employ” in contrast with the “obscene haste” that wrongly incarcerated a man falsely accused. He and Michelle had encountered an antagonism towards men that unsettled them both.

    I have this exact story in my life. I know there must be many of us. I don’t know why I haven’t suicided. I should have I know. Growing old having been branded as scum by everyone who knows me or was once my friend is hard to live with.
    I didn’t have parents like Daniel. They had no resources. I used up all my super and savings and still lost…. there was no detective Sargent saviour in my story.
    I went to prison in maximum too. Rubbing shoulders with murderers and killers beyond comprehension.
    My children raised by a wife who removed me from their lives. Building a narrative about their father the monster. 12 years ago.
    My children don’t contact me, won’t reply me. I’m dead to them. They have well and truly been washed clean of me as their father.
    All this, because I caught my wife locking our little bubba 4yrold outside while she routinely fucked a family “friend”.
    Discovering that scenario was my greatest mistake.
    It emptied and ended my life.
    I was a highly respected schoolteacher and my life ended in a flash.
    I know I must not be the only one. There must be many of us.
    For those who want to think this is bullshit. I can say only one thing. I am 100% the loser and I have no hope of redemption such is the gravity of my loss. I can’t get those years back. I can’t get my life back. It’s gone, and I have utterly, no reason to make up anything. I have lost everything but my life and the story that no doubt will die with me. But I must keep good company with history, as so many gone before have not had justice either.
    Released from prison into a society that measures me as a pure monster. I have no money, no home, no friends bar one who stuck by me thru the long years of disbelief.
    I have nothing left as I come out into a world that doesn’t need truth. It just needs winners and losers. I fully accept I am the loser. I lost because I am male. I lost because I unswervingly believed that truth would win. But I was an innocent in those days. I believed justice actually existed. That stupidity alone is enough to make my failure warranted. I deserved to fail as a father and husband.
    Daniel Jones and his family should not be pitied. He and they are the very lucky ones. I can only dream that I could have been so lucky. They are blessed. They can rebuild. I wish I was them.
    But I’m not so lucky.
    I’m pretty sad that my kids won’t ever know me. That’s a tragedy, but it’s an event my ex wife can never allow.
    I know it won’t happen. I know my time is short anyhow. Coming out and seeing them has kept me going all these years.
    But now I’m out, finding that they want no contact has frayed the last tether I had on life.
    I’m truly lost now.
    I play with the idea of writing a story about what happened and how justice found a home in the darkness of a woman’s welcomed and coddled lies. But I think it’s too painful and for what reason would I write it? I’m having trouble seeing the answer to that one.
    There must be tens of thousands of us losers. It’s good to see Daniel Jones spring free from the pit that exists there for all men.
    At least one of us got through ok. I raise my glass to that. Best wishes

      Mate my story is below your on this page. I was never charged but her reckless allegations cover you in a dark shadow…I feel for you..

    My ex wife has accused me of stalking, sexual assault, rape, domestic violence,
    She told her family and my friends this all via the phone, she wrote letters to my 85 yr old mother accusing me of all sorts, and last year, after a separation time of 25 yrs she accused me of raping our son, I was flabbergasted to say the least, I went to the police, they confirmed she had made the complaint, my local Sargent took statements from myself and my current wife ..he came back and said I had nothing to worry about they realised it was a fabricated story. She was never charged because she made these complaints from another country, she wanted to see me in jail or to go bankrupt defending the charges. I’m sure there’s hundreds more out there like me.
    But what this does to is takes valuable time and resources from an already stretched police force trying to catch the real predators..
    Just as a note she had an affair at work and left me, my life has turned out better than even I could have expected, hers not so much .. karma

    Do men have the same power to destroy women this way? Or is the Austrlian legal system simply biased in favour of women? Sounds like the Criminal Courts base their modus operandi on how the Family Court operates – believe the female, and crucify the male.

    *correction to above post
    unsurprising should read “surprise” — is of no surprise to me.
    Too many thoughts & posts today, methinks

    This is not the first case of false allegations, and annoyingly probably won’t be the last. That police and prosecutors are aware of the possibility and even probability of falsity yet at times turn a blind eye is wicked. Ethical impropriety is my terminology.

    Having direct evidence of one such case in Tasmania, it alarms me yet is of no unsurprising that some of the ‘players’ in the SN-F investigation and S/Court trial had key roles in the matter to which I refer.

    I have more to say on this in later times; sitting and watching-on for now.

      I was very shocked and angered when I saw this story on 60 Minutes. The advertisement of it drew me to it initially as I recognised some similarities with my brother’s case. With what happened to Daniel Jones and his family, my brother was relatively lucky by comparison. However, he and my family went through a rather trying time also because of my brother’s ex. “Every” person deserves to be seen as innocent until proven guilty! What on earth is wrong with our justice system?
