40. serial offender

I don't know how real the plans of storming the Embassy were, or exaggerated by the media. After all, it hasn't happened.
One thing I do recognise is that Assange is abusing the plight for political asylum when all he is wanted for is questioning over sexual misconduct.
From the authorities' point of view they are treating the case as a potential serial offender investigation and if you read the allegations, they are not vague. The request to use a condom is a simple yes or no question. They way he acted must have been both intimidating and confusing to the plaintiffs. Confused and intimidated (traumatised?) victims don't always act like they are even aware of the offence that has been committed against them. Ever heard of Stockholm Syndrome?
