DUKE UPDATE -- HE SAID, SHE SAID

Okay, our female suspect, I mean victiim, has no evidence of semen from ANY of the lacrosse boys in her on her or around her, whatever. The stuff they found matches SOMEONE ELSE -- i.e. boyfriend? A client?

BUT THAT DOESN'T MEAN SHE WASN'T RAPED BY A LACROSSE PLAYER!!!!!!!! Nosirree!! At least according to the guy who wants to prosecute this thing. 

NOTE: If you'll recall Mrs. Linklater assumed the lacrosse guys were guilty at first, so it's not like she wasn't on this woman's side at some point. Now that beeyotch is looking more and more like a hootchie babe who wants money to shut her up.  


ANYHOO -- back to the sperm germs. According to the Durham Keystone Kops, there may not be semen BECAUSE it is possible that the rapists may not be making any semen -- they may be shooting blanks.

HOLD IT!!  Perhaps if there had only been one rapist. Maybe, even if there were two. But what are the chances of THREE athletic young men at the peak of their testosteronal powers shooting blanks?

It's VERY hard to imagine the odds of THREE 20 year old spermocidal maniacs not being able to lock and fire a full load. At least ONE of them. Ya know?

In fact, I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that the chances of all three being spermatozoa free are probably ZERO.

As for using protection to catch the evidence -- if they had used condoms there would be condom residue -- lubrication, latex, a Trojan logo, something. But no-o-o-o-o-o. Nothing.  

Meanwhile, to bolster their leaky case, the Kops have come up with something else now.

There's a claim that THEY found a little DNA from a player on the alleged victim's fake fingernails -- the ones that had been broken and tossed into the wastebasket.  The kind of DNA left when you pick up a broken nail and put it into the basket.  Not the kind of DNA left by scratching someone when they attack you.

HOWEVER, the Kops don't care. They are going to take this all the way to the supreme court. To prove what? That rich, mostly white people, who attend an elitist school, are sensitive to accusations made by minorities, even when those accusations and the accuser's integrity are looking more and more bogus every day.

And let's not forget that our heroine, "who takes courses" at the OTHER university, previously accused three other guys of raping her back in the 90's when she was fourteen. Those charges were dropped.

Like these should be.

Mrs. L
Once again, you are right on the money.  I thought, at first. that there may be something to these charges until the DNA tests all came back negative.  I think the only reason the DA is prosecuting this case is that he used it as a means of getting re-elected and now feels obligated to prosecute as he promised in his campaign regardless of the merit of the case.

Nobody should be raped, ever, BUT this chick has too much bad history to be a reputable "victim".  The whole case needs to be tossed.

I just watched the CNN coverage of the 3rd Duke player addressing the news. Makes me wonder what kind of "evidence" the D.A. had to convience a grand jury to indite them.  Something just doesn't add up.  Is the D.A. crazy?   Anne

When I first heard this story I was sure they were guilty. But after this long... it looks like a girl crying wolf, and knowing rape survivors myself, it pisses me off. Rape isn't a joke. Rape isn't something to be taken lightly. You don't cry rape like you cry "he took my doll" when you're little. And people who DO make false accusations like this are in my opinion worse than the rapists, because they make rape nonchalant.

Good entry Mrs L.

OK, I'll draw a correlation between this case and the sad case of the UCLA basketball player who was murdered in a traffic altercation at 3:30 am over the weekend.  

Yes it is unfortunate that they were accused and he died.  But you know why most people run into less trouble that high profile athletes?  Because most people aren't out running around at 3:30 am.  I think these Duke kids put themselves in this situation by hiring strippers in the first place.  They opened themselves up for this.

Guilty of a crime?  Probably not.  Guilty of poor judgement?  Yep.

OK, I can't resist a follow up.  Instead of being out running around, they should be where everyone else is at 3:30 am.....looking at porn on the internet:)

    I don't know a whole lot about this case, but I do know that there's no quicker or more complete way to destroy a man's reputation than to accuse him of rape.  The charges may eventually be dropped, but in many people's minds, he is still ' the rapist. ' If her accusations are false, I can't imagine a worse thing to do to another human being.   Thanks for a great entry, Mrs. L   ....   Tina
