Woman questioned by her alleged kidnapper, convicted rapist

OAKLAND — A woman who said she was kidnapped but managed to escape in Berkeley earlier this year was questioned by her alleged kidnapper — a six-time convicted rapist — on Wednesday.

Sitting on the witness stand Wednesday at the Rene C. Davidson courthouse, victim “Jane Doe” testified against defendant Whittier Buck Buchanan, 60. In a bizarre scenario, because Buchanan is representing himself in his trial, he’s able to cross-examine the woman he allegedly kidnapped.

Buchanan is charged with kidnapping to commit a sex crime, assault with the intent to commit a sex crime and failing to register as a sex offender after an address change, following the events on May 2 in Berkeley.

The woman, who looked mostly down behind her black thick-rimmed glasses, repeated the night’s events as the jury of seven men and five women listened. On the night of May 2, she was sitting on the front steps of her apartment

Did Woody Allen, An Alleged Pedophile, Really Try To Defend Harvey Weinstein? [Opinion]

It has been a sensational 10 days in Hollywood. Movie mogul Harvey Weinstein has been kicked out of the organizations that run the Oscars and the Baftas after being accused of sexually abusing women over a period of decades. As previously reported by the Inquisitr, dozens of women have emerged to accuse Weinstein of rape, sexual assault, and predatory behavior, but actor and director Woody Allen warns that we should avoid a “witch hunt” over the allegations against Weinstein.

Speaking to the BBC, Woody Allen said that he was “sad for Harvey that [his] life is so messed up.” Allen went on to show that he is totally out of touch with the modern world when he said that he hoped it was still OK to wink at women in the office.

“You also don’t want it to lead to a witch hunt atmosphere, a Salem atmosphere, where every guy

Motion Picture Academy expels movie mogul and alleged rapist Harvey Weinstein

In a move virtually unprecedented, disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein’s membership in the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences was revoked Saturday by its board.

The decision was reached in an emergency session by the academy, the world’s top movie organization and home to the Oscars. The expulsion was effective immediately.

It comes after recent reports by The New York Times and The New Yorker about sexual harassment and rape allegations against Weinstein going back decades. He has denied the accusations against him.

In issuing its decision, the academy stated “We do so not simply to separate ourselves from someone who does not merit the respect of his colleagues but also to send a message that the era of willful ignorance and shameful complicity in sexually predatory behavior and workplace harassment in our industry is over.”

“What’s at issue here,” the statement added, “is a deeply troubling

Judge Didn’t Know He Awarded Joint-Custody To Alleged Rapist

The judge who awarded joint-custody of a child to the man accused of raping the child’s mother when she was 12 said he wasn’t aware of the rape allegations made against the father, according to a report in the Detroit News.

Christopher Mirasolo, 27, was awarded joint-custody of the child earlier this month by Judge Gregory Ross of Sanilac County in Michigan. In 2008, Mirasolo, pled out to a charge of attempted third-degree criminal sexual assault, or statutory rape, after being accused by the eventual child’s then 12-year-old mother of forcibly raping and threatening to kill her.

According to his attorney, Mirasolo did not initiate the child custody dispute and does not want custody of the boy. The case was presented to Ross by the state prosecutor after the mother made a plea for state assistance.

In other words, the custody presentation before the judge was

Alleged Sexual Predator and Hollywood Mogul Harvey Weinstein Threatens NRA (Again)

Even in a city and industry that prides itself on strict adherence to anti-gun orthodoxy, Hollywood Producer and Democratic mega-donor Harvey Weinstein distinguished himself as an enemy of law-abiding gun owners. In a January 2014 interview on The Howard Stern Show, the mogul launched into a lengthy anti-NRA tirade.

The rant started when Stern, a carry permit holder, asked Weinstein whether he owned a gun. Weinstein responded, “I don’t think we need guns in this country, and I hate it. And I think the NRA is a disaster area.” The producer went on to share his plans to make an anti-NRA feature film, titled, The Senator’s Wife. Weinstein noted, “I’m going to make a movie with Meryl Streep, and we’re going to take this head-on. And they’re going to wish they weren’t alive after I’m done with them.” The mogul also contended that the movie would damage

Meanwhile, Let’s Not Forget That the President of the United States Is Also an Alleged Sexual Predator

“Why now?” a friend asked me over dinner this week amid our umpteenth conversation about Harvey Weinstein and the flood of sexual assault and sexual harassment allegations that have emerged about him. Why, after decades of guarding what had become an open secret, had women finally felt more willing to go on the record with journalists and share their stories publicly—even in the face of threats of legal action to the paper by Weinstein, and risk to their own careers, that had been there all along?

I don’t know the answer for sure, but I told her that I think—and I certainly hope—it’s because something in our culture has shifted. With the
