Duke Failed to See Gravity of Rape Case, Report Says
NEW YORK TIMES ^ | May 9, 2006 | KAREN W. ARENSON

Posted on 04/11/2007 5:55:05 PM PDT by hophead

Duke University officials, from the campus police to the highest administrative levels, failed to grasp the seriousness of an accusation that white lacrosse players raped a black woman at a party in March and did not respond quickly enough, said an outside report released yesterday. The report, by William G. Bowen, a former president of Princeton University, and Julius Chambers, a former director of the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund Inc., cited "a gap in communications that is extraordinary," noting that the Duke police force had failed to alert administration officials to the racial component of the case.

You mean they failed to respond to a hoax soon enough?

Perhaps they failed to grasp “it” because there was NO “it”...I hope the 3 guys end up owning Duke!

An interesting line from the story.

“Dr. Chambers, who was chancellor of North Carolina Central University from 1993 to 2001, said in the news conference that one aspect that most disturbed him was that Duke officials had not looked deeper into the accusations.”

Dr. Chambers being a former director of the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund Inc., was the other author of this report.

He is right. It should have been better investigated.

I can imagine that they’re going to really blow some steam when they get their first phone call asking for alumni donations...

Or do you think Duke is actually wise enough to know better and just take them off the list to begin with?

I’d like to see the Duke 88 take out a full page ad apologizing for their rush to judgment, for their presumption of guilt. I hope none of them were teaching criminal law or criminology.

Well stated. There was no rape by those she accused.

There might have been rape at some other time and place, but not by the lacrosse players and not in that house. The DNA of five men were found on Crystal. But apparently Nifong preferred to keep hidden their identities - payoff? - and charge men he knew were innocent.

>>The report also criticized administration officials as being too heavily influenced by Durham police reports that the woman “kept changing her story and was not credible” and that “this will blow over.”<<

This is by far the best (i.e. most idiotic) line in the article. It shows EXACTLY what the liberal mindset is: ignore the truth and view it through the best liberal political view.

Duke University administrators grasped with unseemly alacrity the lies that they wished to grasp, and they will apologize the day before hell freezes over.

This is classic CYA from the officials at Duke. What parent in their right mind who hand over their kid and fork over the outrageous tuition to have these people guide their child for four years?

Unbelievable! The story is not that four white guys were railroaded and falsely prosecuted in a race baiting scam. The story is that Duke is racially insensitive.

the Duke police force had failed to alert administration officials to the racial component of the case.

So the 'racial component' made it more serious?

Are they saying that black on white rape is commonplace and a white on black rape is news?

Ok, I am no lawyer, but we have some very intelligent and informed people on the Freep (some of them might even be lawyers), and I want to know if the 3 who were accused have any chance of filing civil law suits against:the woman who made the accusations; (2)Nifong;(3)the Gang of 88; and/or (4)the University. Defamation of character, filing false police reports, slander, hell, anything.

Yes/No? Anyone?

There is going to be multi-million dollar civil suits flying all over the place. Nifong, numerous other parties, and the university are going to get hammered as they so richly deserve. All are going to quickly try to reach some quiet settlement claiming it “would be in the best interest of all parties”, but if I was the accused, I would be unleashing hell on all of them. No matter how much damage is done, the one thing I hope is that this is the start of a major backlash against the culture of “hate crime” legislation and reverse discrimination against whites that created this entire mess.

THe only thing I feel sorry for are the students who are going to watch their dream of going to Duke and tuition shoot through the roof as the University has to pay all the damages. But they can always bite the bullet and go somewhere else.

I hope the Duke88 are driven into the hills never to be heard from again. But the fake indian proved how hard it is to drive these liberal lunatics from their jobs as professors at these schools.

Yes — you would have a good defamation case against the so-called victim. But as bad an actor as Nifong is, the immunity bar you would have to overcome to sue him under sec. 1983 for violating their civil rights is VERY high and will be difficult to overcome.But I’d take the case in a heartbeat.

Yahh, what a shocker.

That's a good bet.

What does that mean, anyway - 'Women's Studies'? Imagine a 'Men's Studies' class. And isn't it gender biased, non-inclusive, and whatever other terms are used to describe others doing this?

The New York Times isn’t worth reading. Or responding to.

Didn’t see the gravity of it? They suspended the team and fired the coach. Now the three accused are found innocent. Fuck you, New York Times.

As someone mentioned on another thread on this subject, the fact that they bought the ad in a paper not affiliated with the university would seem to remove the university from liability in this particular instance. That means (hopefully) that if lawsuits are brought against each of the 'Group of 88' individually or collectively, they might have to pay for their own defense, as opposed to the university paying.

But wouldn't it be fun to watch the university defend the 88 against a lawsuit after having put the three accused out to dry?

The lefy wants to dictate to all. They smelled the blood in the water and dove in. They are all wet. The profs letter may have been the highwater mark for PC.

The lefties jumped in with both feet and came out smelling like manure.

“You DID notice that this story is from a year ago?”

Thats why I posted it. To give some perspective to what the story started out as.
