was it the black one?

oh man that would be bad.

Hardly conclusive. The match the article touts is a general population match, not a match to an individual's genetic signature.

Isn't it possible to get a lot of DNA evidence just from a simple lap dance, including those that require masculout to remove?
 
2006-05-11 03:49:17 PM  
I think rape is so horrid a thing that it's appropriate so much attention is being paid to this.

/wait, there are other rapes?!?
 
2006-05-11 03:49:24 PM  
this article is trash

how can you present lies to the public, have them proven false, and now expect the public to believe more lies?

Mike_Bolton: was it the black one?

Don't be mean. There is plenty of room for fightin' on this page without throwing the race card THAT quick.

Real evidence makes all the difference to me. Now we can start the hangin'.

Are there actually any black lacrosse players? At Duke or anywhere else?
 
2006-05-11 03:50:01 PM  
Oh yeah Sidewinder, didn't see that comment about duck.
 
2006-05-11 03:50:39 PM  
So a player's, or somebody's, DNA was supposedly found on fake nail thrown in a trash can, and no DNA on/in the stripper/alleged victim? I wonder how many more straws there are for Nifong to grasp.
 
2006-05-11 03:50:58 PM  
Makes me wonder just how much various DNA in lingering under a stripper's fake nails.
 
2006-05-11 03:51:01 PM  
Ok, let me be the first one to point out, that getting your back clawed by a girl is not necessarily a sign that she doesn't want it. In fact, if you're doing your job right, and the girl is sufficiently freaky enough, your back should be pretty cut up by the time you're done.
 
2006-05-11 03:51:07 PM  
scientists who analyzed the tissue concluded it came from the same genetic pool and was "consistent" with the bodily makeup of one of 46 lacrosse players

this doesn't sound like a match to me, can someone with some knowledge of the subject lay some learnin' on us? how close of a match does this sound like it is describing?

It's not mean. Black groups are demanding that the entire team be prosecuted because they're white. It'd be pretty hilarious if the black guy was the rapist, just to see the expression on the faces of the Black Panther groups demanding justice.

elendilmir: Are there actually any black lacrosse players? At Duke or anywhere else?

there was one, his DNA wasn't tested because the stripper accused three white men.

/i think his name was token
 
2006-05-11 03:53:29 PM  
So skin under a discarded fake nail trumps the DNA evidence or lack thereof in her who-ha? I mean common she was raped by 3 guys and none of them left anything more then a little skin under a broken nail??

I think the defense will own this prosecutor....

Hell, ive left more DNA at wendys eating a hamburger.....
 
2006-05-11 03:54:48 PM  
Did she give any lapdances while she was there (haven't been following this case to a T)? Some strippers like to reach up your shirt and scratch the shiat out of you.
 
2006-05-11 03:55:15 PM  
I'd really like to know...just out of curiosity...

Could the victim/woman herself be in that genetic pool? Suppose she was scratching an itch on her hooter and it got under her nail??

Just asking...
 
2006-05-11 03:55:18 PM  
The story keeps changing. First it's 20 guys, now it's three. First it lasted for 30 minutes, now it was only 5.
No matching DNA/matching DNA.

What's next- there were no drugs involved/drugs were involved?

This is a waste of bandwidth.

2006-05-11 03:55:33 PM  
I am not convinced...

scientists who analyzed the tissue concluded it came from the same genetic pool and was "consistent" with the bodily makeup of one of 46 lacrosse players

In other words, they evolved from the same single celled creature and they currently have multiple arms and legs, etc.
 
2006-05-11 03:55:34 PM  
Police later recovered several stick-on acrylic fingernails from a trashcan, and the tissue in question was found under one of those nails, the newspaper reports

Ummm.... maybe it was the player's acrylic nails as he was a drag-queen?

This doesn't seem like strong evidence to me. Her injuries are not consistent with a gang rape, I think she was drunk/high etc, freaking it, the players tried to calm her down and she claimed rape.

There would be one player coming clean by now if this had really happened. Its a lie.
 
2006-05-11 03:55:38 PM  
Its pretty bad when lacrosse players are raping strippers....instead of other lacrosse players...heyyy-ooooo!! jk

Seriously though I think this whole situation is ridiculous. So what she had DNA under her finger nails...that doesn't prove that she was raped. It may prove that she engaged in some sort of intense, mutilating lap dance with a lacrosse player...or that she "got jiggy with it". Certainly doesn't prove that the player whose DNA is under her nails actually raped her.

Was that wrong? Should I have not done that?

Supercheeks: First it lasted for 30 minutes, now it was only 5.

when the hell did that change? after they found out one of the guys she accused was not even there when this rape was supposed to be going on?

Kanabiis
They could have been wearing condoms, I know I would if I was at all screwing a stripper, rape or not.

Also, I'm thinking that the DNA could have gotten under her nails just by giving some guy a lap dance, if she had long press on nails, it would be pretty easy for just about any contact to leave sweat or skin under her nail.

Plus, if she "scratched repeatedly" as she says, then the guys would have been pretty seriously scratched up, and that would have been identified and cataloged on day 1 of the investigation.
 
2006-05-11 03:56:55 PM  
In another development, comments made by Durham police questioning the credibility of the alleged victim woman were made during a conversation overheard by a campus officer, officials said Wednesday.

DNA under a (fake) fingernail. Could be from a simple scratch.

New profit model:
1. Get hired for a party
2. Scratch one of the guys on the arm
3. Claim rape ("WE HAVE DNA EVIDENCE!")
4. Collect money and free ejamacashun from Jesse

Oh no, I get the deliscious irony of the situation. I'd demand an apology from those dousches at the black panther party to start with, followed by the usual suspects of campus protests. I was merely alluding that one should let things warm up first. Ain't y'all ever heard of a simmer? You burn your quiche. Ever one of you.

apparently strippers are people now, who knew?


/well i figured a white stripper might be considered a person in NC, but a black stripper? that's a shock.

Everyone who cares already knows who she is, why doesn't she come out and tell her story to the rest of the nation?

68% of Americans can tell when someone is lying to them.

What percentage does that leave? :)

Oh, my esteemed thug-a-mug, there are indeed! They are, however, few and far-between. Heck, even the NHL has a handful. One drove for NASCAR recently. Heck, there are even some black chess Grandmasters.

Duke does, indeed, suck, and this ain't gonna end well. If the stripper in question was acting in truth and good faith, as I've already stated in a long-gone thread, I will cheerfully retract my "Tawanna Brawley II, Electric Boogaloo" statements without hesitation.

This can't be true, I've already made up my opinion on the matter.

Probably the only sensible thing anyone will say in this thread.

Did a rape occur? Maybe.
Is she lying? Maybe.
Who knows for sure? The people who were there, and some of them have a good motive to lie about whether rape did / did not occur.

But we weren't there, so we don't know.

/duke still sucks, tho
