Yes & no, in court of law No (you are innocent until proven guilty) ... in the court of public opinion not necessarily. This is the group that purchases ticket & downloads/cd's.

When you have to start compromising yourself and your morals for the people around you, it’s probably time to change the people around you.

^^^ now the courts (law) may find Hedley innocent of all or any charges. That may not be the case of the court of public opinion.
Of course only way to find that one out is via sales & concerts.... low to no sales of either, then band is dead in the water.

Footnote: I'm not fan of this group, I'm more heavier rock

My point being - those in the know, know more than what's publicly known. Their manager has been with them from the start, and for someone that close to walk pretty much as the news was breaking says a lot - a lot more than if had he stayed and said "innocent before guilty".

Hedley has performed here a few times now so there may be the possibility of silent victims locally or the possibility of reoffending at this show.... but I get innocent until proven guilty.

I'm more of the let's not take the chance with our girls opinions.


I mentioned that purely from concern that some may view it as a cancellation announcement incorrectly. That's all.

It's been fixed. :up:

we are on a slippery slope, cancelling show, lets cancel Parliament,lets cancel some government departments, lets stop trading with some companies. lets shut down the RCMP
not excusing anyone or any organisation, however, we don't dump the barrel for one bad apple, was in the entertainment/hospitality industry for many years, and saw first hand, the groupies and jail bait, trying to gain access to entertainment people

What even is this? I have no idea what you’re trying to say. It’s a slippery slope to distance yourself from accused rapists with a doctors testimony against them?

- and so that makes it all ok?
No one's saying to toss the baby out with the bath water, nor dumping the barrel for one bad apple - the times they are-a-changing, and now the bad apples are simply getting tossed out.

Sorry to burst anyone's bubble but there will be thousands more cases coming out. This is an epidemic and has been going on for centuries. You're just starting to hear about it now.

Both.

There's a feeling that more mass accusers coming out means females are capitalizing on a trend. In reality, it's that the abuses that have always been happening are coming to public attention.

She says he didn't stop assaulting her even though she was bleeding from her vagina and anus. At one point, she says, he pulled her off the bed by her legs and dragged her into the bathroom. She says Hoggard asked several times if he could urinate on her, then asked if she wanted to pee on him. She says he backed off when she kept repeating, "No, that's disgusting."


Doesnt sound very romantic .


The doctor note says she came in with allegations however there was no proof of vaginal tearing even though she said she was bleeding and there was no note of a anal exam even though she said it was her first time and that she was again bleeding. What does that doctors visit prove?
