The mothers of the Duke players should sue EVERY faculty member who signed that infamous document.
Their lawsuits say campus leaders relayed to police information the players told them in confidence.
Under what legal concept would the admin have any duty not to inform police of information given to them by players. I thought that was spousal, medical and legal only?
I really didn’t want to read this post, because as I feared, it would stir up all of the genuine rage this case caused during it’s early stages..
When I first read the initial accounts of this episode, I was outraged over the accusations being leveled at these players.. It gave me pause that the accuser was a woman of somewhat questionable character, but I found her experience, all too sympathetic..
It was only when the early stories began to take on the appearance of a stereotypical litany of oft used feminist, pile-on, laundry list of victimization claims..
How conveniently, this unknown, unnamed, unvetted storyline
adapted so well to the stereotype of all Lilly-white, rich sons of suburban privilege.. Buy, use, then throwaway any and all poor, hard working, single, minority women/men/children.. WOW.. Wait, What?
At first blush, as the inconvenient truth, slowly began to come forward, these boys were not all that privileged, nor were they without a entirely different plausible explanation..
However, that divergent view couldn’t be true, because it was so incredibly different, the only possibility would cast doubt on EVERYTHING that we were being told, not only about the facts about the incident itself, but the about this totally sympathetic accuser..
I watch “Investigation Discovery” on TV on a regular basis. The story of Crystal Magnum’s on right now!
They repeat these programs regularly all day long...all night. They’re 20 minutes into the program so far and it’s all “poor me.”
