Not directed at you, but why is it a “lacrosse” murder? How did “lacrosse” become some sort of nefarious word when we all know that the “original” lacrosse players were innocent?

I was thinking the same thing.

What did the fact that he played lacrosse have to do with it?

Imagine if they started using "Basketball Murder."

“Lacrosse” is mentioned to remind folks male lacrosse players are racist animals from priviliged families, and those players are all known as abusers of women. (see also Nifong)

It is a shot at the Duke athletes, but you will never see the MSM mention the charges were all trumped up, evidence ignored or fabricated to make the players look guilty, or the FACT that Chrystal Magnum was a lying, perjurious murderer (although she didn’t graduate to murdering till after the Duke incident).

In short, the “Lacrosse” reference is intended to prejudice the jury against the defendant.

He acted like an animal, but what he did has nothing to do with the Duke trials.

This is a sort of "micro-bigotry," probably unique to degenerate east coasters, where lacrosse players do tend to be arrogant, smirkfaced assholes. As a result, everyone who isn't in the club enjoys seeing them get their come-uppance.

On the other hand, it is an uphill struggle for some punk with a "V" after his name to convince anyone he is not a cheesy narcissistic psychopath.
