Innocent until proved guilty, and also this has no effect on OP, during wisdom teeth removal, the surgeon and two nurses are required to be in there at one time, because A) the surgeon needs help B) if someone throws up during wisdom teeth removal, or any type of surgery where a patient is unconscious, immediate medical help would need to be administered. All that being said, unless they're all rapists, OP has nothing to worry about and should stop judging her surgeon.
#49 - 2 men in my hometown were recently released from jail for rape where the sole conviction evidence was from the accuser, caught out in another lie about rape. One of them had served 5 years of an 8 year term. My point is that, yes false accusations can be just as damaging and should be vilified as much as the act itself. Just because someone is arrested does not mean guilt.
And like I said, Spotdog, false accusations are wrong and yes, should be vilified. But as horrible as it was that said men had to suffer time in jail while innocent, tell a rape victim who can never again have sex, or form bonds, or be in social settings, or trust people, or who can never sleep or lives in a shattered state for the rest of her or his life, that a false accusation is as detrimental as rape itself. Granted, time spent in jail is unforgivable, but in today's society with DNA testing and more extensive investigations, it's rare. Rape only has a 6 percent conviction rate, mostly because it is hard to prove rape in a he said she said scenario. A false accusation can ruin a mans personal life and career, until he can put time and distance between the situation and himself. A rape victim suffers for her or his entire life. It never goes away, no matter how much time and distance has passed.
121 - You usually have to be accused of something to get arrested for it. And as it doesn't say "found guilty of" it can safely be assumed the dentist hadn't been found guilty or not guilty yet. Therefore, he's still presumed innocent (until found guilty in a court of law).
Just think about the folks he went to medical school with, or his friends on the playground. Imagine how creeped out they must be to find out that they once knew someone who thirty years later would be accused of a crime. See, if you actually think about it, it's ridiculous. Something that wasn't creepy doesn't become creepy well after the fact because you think it should've been.
97 - I've never heard of ANYONE being alone when they're under anesthesia. Anesthesia is very tricky and dangerous and the anesthesiologist needs to be on hand at all times during the procedure (hence anesthesiology being one of the highest paid medical professions). Plus there would have been nurses present to assist the dentist, monitor the patient and be there for liability purposes. So really, the OP is just trying to get a little attention and needless sympathy.
1 its not rape if you yell surprise !!! :D 2ed its not rape if you like it.... Have a good life O_o
Wow. Everyone insulting this person is an asshole. Take time from your day to do something that will not affect the future (except possibly to make you a more aggressive person), but possibly hurt anotgers feelings. Well, I guess some peopke are just narsasistic assholes. This person did nothing to insult you. Fuck off.
Oral rape? Anyway, if he hasn't been convicted yet, he could still prove his innocence. Because he is gentle and adorable, someone might think this would be an easy way to make a quick buck from him. There would be more to the story, so don't be too quick to judge. (FYL just in case...)
maybe because he is "gentle and adorable" not many would suspect that he's a rapist. Alot of them are friendly in order to gain the victim's trust. Research: Earl Bradley, he was a pediatrician.....until last year that is. He molested more than 100 of his young patients. Unfortunately my mother's best friend's 3yr old granddaughter was one of those children.
19, Don't get me wrong, I am not defending the guy, and sadly, what you say is true more often than not. Sexual assault is the most unreported crime. All I'm saying is that in todays society, people do try to get money without working for it, by making accusations such as rape, or sueing for nothing. Whatever the outcome, the reputation of this guy is damaged now, and thus his career. Consequences for such crimes, including false accusations, should be more severe and hopefully that could stop people from doing it. (Sorry for your friends' granddaughter though. May the cunt rot in jail forever)
What I find interesting is that if the OP had stated any other crime, most posters would not question his guilt. For example, had she said he was arrested for beating the crap out of someone, or for robbing from his patients, etc, everyone tends to assume guilt. But the second one mentions rape, most posters assume the victim, or possible victim, is making it up because she is a money hungry, vindictive ex, despite the FBI statistical fact that false rape accusations are at the same level of any other false accusation for other crimes. I wonder why that is.
Rape is a fuzzier area than most crimes. It's very easy to prove assault (witnesses are usually around) or murder (there's usually a dead person involved), but rape is between only two people, and sometimes women don't even know if they have been raped. And I think, as I'm sure others do, that it's an easier crime to falsify than others. It's easier to claim rape with little to no evidence than, say, embezzlement or domestic violence.
#50, nobody gives half a flying fuck about the FBI for one. Two, yes, the false accusations for rape might be the same as for any other crime but if you had even stopped to think before making presumptuous comments, you would realize that for any other crime there would be most likely many different pieces of incriminating evidence, such as bruises on the victim of the crime is assault, a credit card record/bank record if the crime is stealing money etc. With crimes such as rape, there is no incriminating evidence other than the spoken work of the victim. And ALSO, the OP stated that her oral surgeon was arrested for it, not convicted. Just because someone has been arrested for a crime doesn't mean they are guilty of it it just means there is suspicion that they committed the crime and they will have to go to court. Next time you try to sound smart over FML try to brush up on your common sense as well as your facts.
