I know I missed the memo, if there was one but I am sure it will streamline the legal court load. All one needs to do is make an allegation on social media and sit back. The person will most likely be convicted, lose his or her career, future careers and there doesn't appear to be any ramifications or corrections if it is proved false. The damage is done.
It does not have to even be an allegation about what you feel was done to you. It just needs to be the allegation "du jour" or scandalous enough to get the attention of the press. It can be something from ancient history (harder to disprove) and does not have to be anything that is actually something illegal.
Surely helps if you are famous, important in some way or even better, involved in politics. Even District attorneys are doing it. Case in point the expose' on Robert Wagner regarding his wife's death. If he is guilty, I am all for prosecuting, but they apparently don't have enough to charge him, so they now make him a "person of interest".
What does that accomplish besides wreck a career, his children and life in general? Bring out new witnesses? These potential witnesses did not think it was important enough at the time and now 37 years later someone is going to remember with enough clarity to convict a person of murder?
Of course we have seen what allegations do to political careers, Hollywood elite, company management. Some are creeps but there is apparently nothing legal that can be done, so ruin their life with allegations?
