Tawana Brawley found living in Virginia under alias 25 years after rape hoax
Fox News ^ | December 23, 2012 | Fox News (AP)

Posted on 12/23/2012 9:05:40 PM PST by South40

Tawana Brawley is living in Virginia under a new name, still owing money to a New York lawyer she accused of raping her 25 years ago, the New York Post reports.

The Post reported Sunday that the 40-year-old Brawley lives in Hopewell, Va., has a young daughter and works as a nurse in Richmond, Va.

Brawley was 15 and living in Wappingers Falls, N.Y. when she said six white law enforcement officials abducted and raped her. Brawley is black.

She should have been in jail serving six rape sentences, for lying about it. that’s what those guys were facing. False accusers ought to serve the sentences the falsely accused were facing.

Any other race she would have been thrown in jail, but as we have seen by our current President, perpetrating a hoax is OK if your are black. If I was Stephen Pagones I’d be at her work every payday with my hand out. This article mentions $190,000 which is for Pagones, but what it doesn’t mention is it’s now $429,000 with interest..

(From the NY Post).. “Brawley was ordered to fork over $190,000 at 9 percent annual interest. None of that has been paid, which brings her total bill to $429,000”.

The Post says Brawley never paid a $190,000 defamation judgment owed to one man she accused. She told the newspaper she doesn't want to talk to anyone about the episode.

Well I wonder why???

If she’s an RN, she’s pretty well-compensated and wouldn’t qualify for Obamaphones and EBT cards. Certainly not in Virginia.

I forgive her for what she did. She was an idiotic fifteen-year-old who made up a story to get off the hook because she was afraid of her stepfather. She was manipulated, used, and pressured by that lying adult race-whore, Al Sharpton. Sharpton is the one who ought to be in jail.

She was a pawn in the scheme of Sharpton’s dreams.....she was a victim by the hands of the black so called leadership, these so called humans are diseased worms in the garden of life.

She should’ve been in jail for the last 25 years... and 25 more (along with Al $harpton).

As I understand it, a civil judgement of a New York court that is more than twenty years old is unenforceable, i.e. considered paid.

because she was afraid of her stepfather

Yes, I remember, in fairness to Tawana Brawley, her stepfather was an abusive SOB to her and her mom. He actually did time for beating his first wife to death *plead to manslaughter). The hoax apparently started because she was afraid of getting an a**whopping for dating some guy that her stepdad didn't like.

She was a kid. She told a lie to avoid getting beaten by her abusive stepfather, and the adults exploited her. Even if she had wanted to tell the truth later, do you think these greedy criminals would have let her? Sharpton and her stepfather would have shut her up, one way or another. Sharpton should be in jail for this and for many other things he’s done, but Tawana was a pawn.

Do you know what would’ve happened to those men had they been convicted ? Lives and reputations were destroyed. Fake accusations as such ought to get twice the penalty for the real deal, and I don’t care what her age was. I don’t have much sympathy.

She was 15, she knew what she was doing, committed a crime, and owes her victims half a million dollars. Put her big butt in jail. Stop the excuses!

Now that $harpton has that big money MSLSD gig, he’s the one who should be paying the $490K settlement.

Liberals said it didn't matter that the charges were false.. since the charges expressed the essential nature of white men's treatment of black women in this country; and of course there is a similar attitude about false charges against the Duke lacrosse players. IOW these lies help make the civil rights industry exceedingly lucrative.

I found some interesting and germane information on wiki graffiti that has since be removed because it contained the following:

In the 111,590 cases in which the victim of rape or sexual assault was white, 44.5 percent of the offenders were white, and 33.6 percent of the offenders were black. In the 36,620 cases in which the victim of rape or sexual assault was black, 100 percent of the offenders were black, and 0.0 percent of the offenders were white.

Fortunately the source of the information is still there.. until the Obama/Holder Dept. of Just Us & Our People realize that it's open to the public.

I have since prepared a table for years 2000 through the latest available year 2008. I have not downloaded the pdf files so if the Obama/Holder Dept. of Just Us & Our People remove the files I have no backup.

2000 2001 2002 2003 2004 2005 2006 2007 2008

Some numbers do look strange and I have no idea why.. strange also is that no stats (at least in this series) exist since our Department of Justice became the Obama/Holder Department of Just Us & Our People.

I thought that by now there'd be stats for 2009 and 2010.

Oh what fun it was being the wrong color in New York at this time. Who would have thought then that fat, track-suit wearing Al Sharpton would one day be a svelte, suit wearing repeat visitor to the White House? Sad about the suicide too, not to mention the slander. What a forgiving bunch we all are.

In Richmond, she’d be making about $40K as an LPN (though the article does not specifically say she’s just an LPN). Living in Hopewell, which is not an expensive area, she’d be doing fine and would not need public assistance.

She knew better and should have been sentenced to do the time of all she lied about.

Personally I think she should have been executed as an example to others.

Of course she knew better. She was fifteen years old, and we all behave perfectly and have excellent judgement at that age. Personally, I never lied to my parents when I was a teenager. I certainly would never have told a lie even if I knew the truth would earn me a beating.

/ end sarcasm

Tawana's stepfather had killed his previous wife. Yes, she lied to him. Most girls would. Maybe you wouldn't have, at fifteen. Maybe you're a guy and you could stand up to a man like that. I wouldn't have had the courage. So on the spur of the moment she made up a lie. She had no way of knowing the adults would take a private incident and blow it up into a national issue, making crazy accusations and ruining the reputation of real people.

Al Sharpton's life should be ruined. He's the one who damaged everyone's lives.

Someone like that skank who made the accusations at Duke University deserves to go to jail. She was an adult, nobody forced her, and she did it with the intention of making money from white boys. But you don't sentence a minor child to long-term time into middle age when there is no violence.

Once in a while I run into a woman named Tawana who is about 25 and can't help but wonder if she or her mother knows the name's significance.

Sympathy for Twana Brawley? Never.

Pagones received death threats, and his young daughter was later threatened.

'We stated openly that Steven Pagones did it," said Sharpton. "If we're lying, sue us, so we can go into court with you and prove you did it. Sue us -- sue us right now.'

Pagones did sue.

A jury unanimously concluded that Sharpton defamed Pagones, ordering Sharpton to pay him $65,000. The Reverend promptly and publicly said he did not intend to pay. Later, when Sharpton decided to run for president, the outstanding defamation debt became a political problem. So Sharpton's one-percenter buddies passed the hat and paid off his debt, which by then totaled $87,000 with interest and penalties.

In 1989, a young white woman, dubbed the 'Central Park jogger,' was monstrously raped and nearly beaten to death. Sharpton insisted -- that the jogger's boyfriend did it and organized protests outside the courthouse, chanting, 'The boyfriend did it!' and denouncing the victim as a "whore!"
