Skip to comments.Duke's Response to Allegations Explained (Woman Initially told Police She Was Raped by 20 White Men)
Posted on 05/08/2006 6:49:09 PM PDT by zaxxon
Duke underestimated the rape allegations against members of the lacrosse team in part because Durham police initially said the accuser "kept changing her story and was not credible," according to a university report issued Monday.
The day after the March 13 team party where a 27-year-old black woman claimed she was raped, Durham police told campus officers that "this will blow over," the report said. It said that the woman initially told police she was raped by 20 white men, then said she was attacked by three.

Why are we hearing about this now, instead of early on?
The case may have been handled better "if a wide array of life histories and perspectives had been brought to bear on what were sensitive and highly charges issues," the report said.
Somebody has been watching way too much Oprah.
any alien abductions?
but I heard they found a hair?
Also, no mention of the bathroom or broomstick in the initial allegation.....
Of course the Racist Panthers still believe the stripper. Everybody knows Blacks never lie.

This woman may be suffering from bi-polar disease with a touch of paranoia. Some people love being the victim.
The problem is that there are so many liars that all the cases are treated seriously and it truly screws the innocent accused.
This is exactly what happened in the 80s with every divorce case including an accusation of sexual molestation.
Remember earlier this evening I said the police have turned on the DA because he took over? Now they are leaking EVERYTHING and this case is (or should be) OVER.
Yes, on a Coke can, those aliens like the real thang. Incorrect spelling is intentional, just to head off the spelling police.
I remember that national torture session like it was yesterday. On and on and on and on it went -- utter insanity, dementia. Joe Biden's mad hatter grin.
I'm not so sure this will just go away. Nifong is more or less committed to going forward with it, and the Grand Jury has indicted the three who were charged.
So, what are the chances it will be dropped without a trial? And what are the chances that there will be a fair trial?
It's a disgusting mess. And the pathetic thing is that evidently the two other candidates for DA were even worse than Nifong.
How could ANYONE be worse than that P.O.S. Nifong? As a D.A. he sucks, and as a human being he sucks, so how could this ever be? It is the complete idiots in Durham who elect this kind of trash, because most of them aren't any better. They deserve getting the crap beat out of them in court, and then sued for false arrest, etc. I would hate to be a policeman/woman there with him "backing me up", as he is lower than whale manure in my book. In his case, DA doesn't mean district attorney, but does mean dumba$$.
The prosecutors manipulated the kids so deftly that their imaginations went absolutely wild: eventually, they were claiming they were raped by scissors, that an evil doll had raped them, that they had donned robes, descended into a magic chamber where they were made to rip the wings off birds....
Counselors also withheld water from thristy kids in "interviews" (interrogations), and later permitted them to slake their thirst after they had given them what they were after.
Some of the minutes of these interrogations are either horrifying, or completely hilarious, it's hard to decide which.
THAT'S THE POWER OF THE STATE.
The police had good reason to doubt the allegations she made.If the DA had an ounce of decency he would have waited for more evidence before charging the two athletes with rape.He should be disbarred and the accuser should be arrested if the charges turn out to be fraudulent.
It is the secret evidence that Nifong has been holding back to spring on the defense!
In other words, white guilt knows no bounds.
Kind of like The Bonfire of the Vanities but without the great ending.
I'll say it and I don't care if I get slammed for it. The minute I heard the word rape and stripper in the same sentence, I figured it was BS. I was right.
Too many people (even here on FR) were too quick to believe this story. It should have been looked at skeptically from the start.
>>Also, no mention of the bathroom or broomstick in the initial allegation.....
Nor in the search warrant, neither in items to look for, nor in the inventory of items taken. It's online at TheSmokingGun.com.
And if the do lie, well, they only did it because whitey made them.
Even if she wasn't raped, she was still being held down by The Man!

"the woman initially told police she was raped by 20 white men"
See, they were right to pass out posters of the whole team!
I wonder if the "proper" jury panel will be called up? If so these kids are toast.
I can think of many things that are lower than Bush's numbers besides the press. The first thing that comes to mind is the congress. And it's down hill from there.
Three were charged?
Homey don't play dat!

Imagine : 20 guys involved and they managed to leave no DNA!
I'm sure the CIA would be interested to find out how they did that...
Yeah. Right in the middle of that case falling apart, idiotic radio host Carole Hemmingway kept insisting that the charges were true because "children NEVER lie." She kept repeating that over and over again. Made me laugh. Yeah, children NEVER Lie. Riiiiiiight.
Then you get the rape shield law preventing innocent men from defending themselves from deranged people.
Sorry, two were charged and he hopes to charge a third person.
Three men will rape a stripper with a broom in the bathroom of a small home - with another stripper and 45 guys in the immediate area - leaving no DNA, and getting no injuries while they strangle and beat the stripper.
That's a story only Wendy Murphy and drunken strippers would believe.
Thanks. I've been away for a week and thought I had missed something.
Then again....the accuser seems to have been given a "right" to change her story.....a few times....
Wendy Murphy, Nancy Grace, and Kimberly Guilfoyle!
Which one is the real idiot?
Why would I ask such a question?
The answer is all three.
Since Duke is as politically correct as any institution it will now proceed into an orgy of self-flaggelation and abnegation with the appointment of a woman to led it and more women higher ups hired.
The feminists will make out like bandits and the institution will suffer. But sinee it is already ballless it deserves what it will get.
As I've grown older its become apparent that we cannot escape who we are. This has been good in my family as the sheep come back from straying and assume their rightful places as good citizens and lovers of God.
To want to be other than what one is is to cheat oneself of joy.
That is my fear as well.
They're all three nuts! Speaking of nuts, they've never met a pair they didn't wish they had.
