Thursday Thought – Allegedly

12 03 2009

I think no one knows how to deal with alleged sexual assault.
Taking the Brett Stewart case, what is the most appropriate response by those involved?
Manly wanted to take the view that because they were only allegations he should be allowed to carry on his normal role.
The NRL thought otherwise and decided to ban him for “getting drunk” at the pre-season function. This despite not banning a Manly team mate who also got drunk and slapped a sponsor.
But what is the right response?
What’s the best thing to do for the sake of the alleged victim? For the accused?For the community at large?
Just watching him on the footy show now. His interview before all this happened was very telling!
