"You are so wrong it's not even funny. The biggest crime is that a prosecutor acted totally inappropriately and maybe even illegally. Someone who works in the justice system can't be allowed to abuse it. If we can't trust our legal system to work the way it is supposed to, who can we trust?
And it's not liberals or feminists who will hurt chances of rape victims coming forward. It's FOX's rush call the woman in the Duke case a liar without waiting for the facts to come out that will keep a woman from from doing the right thing when she's been raped. It's FOX's lamenting on air that they couldn't release her name. It's FOX's speculating on her choice to be an exotic dancer and past sexual history. It's FOX's suggestion that she is looking to smack down some rich white boys and maybe even come out of this with some cash. All of these FOX reporting tactics will cause rape victims to have the fear of being smeared by the pundits of a news network. THAT is what will keep rape victims from coming forward."
First of all, Nifong did act illegally in his pursuit to send three overwhelmingly innocent men to prison for crimes they didn't commit.
FoxNews called her for what she was, a liar after the evidence proved Reade Seligmann was at a Wachovia ATM during the time of the alleged attack. By calling out criminals, false accusers (filing a false police report is a crime in NC, although charging her would have been political suicide for Roy Cooper), Fox leveled the playing field for the vicious slanderous attacks on members of the lacrosse team, who had been unfairly targeted on misdemeanors for years. One Duke lax player was arrested for having an open beer container, not in a cup on campus, and was sent to jail. (He was LDA as well, 21). The same police officer, Mark Gotlieb, let off an African American man in Durham go off scotch free after confiscating over 1 1/2 pounds of cocaine and illegal possession of a fire arm.
About the racial slurs. There was only one confirmed racial slur from a lacrosse player, from a player that was not one of the three accused, as a retaliation from a racial comment from Kim Roberts in a racially heated argument started by her. That's it...
About Collin Finnerty's DC conviction. The "alleged gay bashing incident" was a hoax as well. The media literally made the gay part up out of thin are. According to court documents, Finnerty threw a "fake punch" after he was sucker punched by Jeffrey Bloxgom, the alleged victim in the case... who it turns out, was not a homosexual. He adamantly denies the claim to this day. He is straight and has acknowledged he started the fight. The judge in that case was looking for some media attention when the rush to judgment in the Duke case was in full swing and the MSM pounced upon the other false accusation.
To the people talking about hiring strippers. Hiring strippers is a common act among a large percentage of college males, but it is far more common among the lower class. The drinking underage argument is absurd as well, made my people who haven't stepped foot on a college campus in the last fifty years.
For those who who think something happened, you simply wanted the allegations to be true for your agendas. You were proven flat out wrong and simply cannot deal with it. It is sad and pathetic. You are ignoring one of the biggest hoaxes in our criminal justice system over the last ten years because it doesn't fit into your agendas. You are all racist and a disgrace.
