Why would Assange fear being extradited to the USA? A nation that has secret black hole jails and admits to torturing prisoners. Hell, American politicians who might win in the next election talk about torturing prisoners with a glee even Saddam did not display in public.

All the Assange supporters seem to forget that a sexual assault victim is still waiting for justice.

All the Assange supporters seem to forget that a sexual assault victim is still waiting for justice.

Assange is not charged with sexual assault or any crime. He is wanted for questioning as part of a police investigation for something called 'surprise sex' which is in Swedish law but has no analogy in America's understanding of sexual assault crimes.

STDs, Broken Condoms, and ‘Sex by Surprise’: A Primer on the Charges Against Assange

He's not charged because of a quirk of Swedish law that basically requires that a suspected criminal be in custody for several days before they can be charged. Under either common law or US law, the position he's in now would already have resulted in charges assuming the conduct were illegal.

Furthermore, as a survivor of date rape/"surprise sex" myself...kindly hang (sorry--that may be even more unacceptable than the original 'screw' or 'fuck' I was first thinking) yourself. "She palled around with him after the alleged rape--obviously there must have been no rape!"
Yeah--or she was so brainwashed as to keep hanging around him after she'd been burned twice. I put out for my rapist for two months afterwards.

And what a surprise, you pull out the 'It broke!oneone1' line. No, it didn't break. She told him to wear it, he didn't put it on, and for whatever reason she was too out of it to realise and/or resist at the time. Stop defending a predator, please!
