They identified with white victims, victims who looked like them, and they accordingly became filled with righteous anger and empathy as a result, expressing those feelings with capital punishment, even if the perpetrator was also white. Police in Saskatoon worked with officers in the Philippines and eventually a woman was arrested and charged with abusing nine children who were taken from her home. If Thor were convinced that a rape took place at a fraternity perhaps because a video recording existed , he might well condemn it. Investigator travels to Philippines to meet child sex abuse victims he rescued, and testify at trial Published Thursday, June 7, 7: Waldron acknowledges that current First Amendment doctrine would not allow for a prohibition on group libel, but he argues that such a prohibition might offer a positive benefit over our existing law.

Covering three generations of black women activists, it demonstrates that their approach was neither unanimous nor monolithic but changed over time and took a variety of forms, from a woman's right to control her body to her right to vote. Note the fact that the hypothetical action for group libel would aim to protect oppressed groups from such calumnies as the blood libel. The law governing speech and competing interests can thus accommodate various concerns raised in both conversations.

The theory of selective empathy may have relevance for the two fraternity-related conversations.
