Leading off- this case is important for two reasons.
1- In this country, men are assumed guilty of violence against women until proven innocent. Congress supplies truck loads of money to women’s organizations to perpetuate this type of discrimination.
2- False accusations against men have no repercussions except to smear the reports of legitimate victims. Statistics show that over 50% of allegations are completely bogus. Fraudulent cases need to face prosecution.
This story deserves the media spotlight it is getting. It’s unfortunate to actual rape victims, but the backlash is that every legitimate rape victim is going to be more and more suspect of crying wolf.
Why this is looking more bogus every minute:
The entire team (minus the black dude) are suspects- in other words between the two strippers, neither has any clue what the assailants look like other than being white and male. Short, tall, fat, skinny, blonde, dark hair…nothing. Y’all look alike to me.
Next in any group of males that size there are no doubt 5 individuals (at least) who are likely to be bad characters. These are not unlike the usual idiots at any college party who start picking fights around midnight. I reference the moron with the Silence of the Lambs style email as exhibit A. Similarly there would also be 5 Duddly-Do-rights who would under no circumstances allow such a crime to continue or allow the entire team to be dragged through the mud to protect such idiots and undeniable criminal behavior. Could the entire team, including the Do-rights be that cohesive and show that level of loyalty? In other words, Semper Fi for a criminal at the snob school?
Likely? Like me winning the lottery.
Aside from showing up to the party wasted, the two strippers “feared for their safety” after being called racial slurs. Out of “fear” they decided to leave but were “coaxed” back into the house. Then, after previously being afraid for their safety, the strippers assert they separated (not forcefully separated) for more than a half an hour at the party. Even without the racial slurs, this behavior doesn’t add up.
The DNA clearance was a real crusher here as well. An act of passion now goes into CSI mode to prove the drunken micro gang rape in the closet all wore condoms and then did a clean up to remove any bio evidence at all.
According to defense attorneys, photos taken by the players are emerging indicating the stripper was not only drunk, but was also “damaged goods” when she got to the party. If true, this doesn’t bode well at all for the prosecution or the accuser. Not to mention…“ewww” and “bleck”
Leaving aside the chaotic history this woman brings with her (after all, being a criminal doesn’t disqualify you from being a rape victim- just visit a men’s prison) the prosecution must show some proof a crime actually occurred at the party. Ultimately defense attorneys will start forcing the prosecution to face hard questions about the time line and facts in this case. I don’t doubt that justice will prevail and may I win the lottery if a rape actually occurred, because it sure isn’t shaping up that way.
From a men’s rights perspective, guilty or innocent this story definitely depicts the discrimination men face when it comes to accusations of violence. The Duke team was guilty until proven innocent. My sympathy to actual victims of rape. May you have the courage to start asking for prosecution against the frauds who abuse the serious nature of this crime for whatever grotesque advantage they might glean from it.
In other news, Duke Lacrosse shirts are said to be selling out daily. I guess the public understands the concept of DNA as having more credibility than the stripper. Suffice to say that if a crime did occur- I make no excuse for them and I would want that crime prosecuted- along with any conspirator for hiding it.
The nation's most notorious racist made this offer to the stripper. "The Reverend Jesse Jackson says his Rainbow/Push Coalition will pay the college tuition for a black stripper who has made rape allegations against white members of the Duke University lacrosse team. And the offer stands even if it turns out she fabricated her story."
