Nonsense! Public outrage is not a path toward justice.
There are lots of cases where people have been declared guilty in the court of public opinion, at great personal cost, and then later exonerated when people had time to consider the facts on both sides. An outraged public is not an impartial jury.
There are two problems
1. People believe stories that fit their preconcieved notions without question. People accused of sexual harassment are assumed guilty until proven innocent.
Most people don't even want to hear the other side of the story.
This is the reason we have a legal system, a fair system where both sides of the story can be heard and questioned by an impartial jury.
This trial by Twitter is taking the place of a real legal process... And it is meting out real punishments with no protection from the biases inherent in an angry mob.
2. The rush to justice conflates all levels of actions with no distinction between telling a dirty joke, an unwanted pat on a butt, or rape at gunpoint.
The narrative is singular and the desire is for every perceived misdeed to be severely punished without thought about balance or fairness.
