The first one sounds a lot less bad, but still bad. There is no perfect solution as long as there are sexual assaults and some people lie about them.
I mean in the end if Judge Kavanaugh is completely innocent, no doubt that sucks but he still became a SPC justice so it really wasn't that bad. But if he did it, man does that suck for the victim. way worse than for him. It is not as if there is no cost for a victim to come forward.
