TUCKER CARLSON (HOST):  We've got a legal mechanism for doing that. It's not flawless but for almost 250 years our justice system has function pretty well. In fact, better than any other country in the world. It's pretty straightforward. If you believe a crime has been committed against you, you report it. That would include theft, embezzlement and, yes, sexual assault. Go to the police. It's not always easy, obviously, but it's still your obligation as a citizen, not at least to protect the rest of us from whomever you believe did it. The police investigate and a judge or jury renders a verdict. That's due process, its the cornerstone of our system.
