This is still going on?!? I thought it was all over but the civil lawsuits. Dont cry for those boys, they just hit the litigation lotto!!

Cool thing is they deserve every penny they get.

I hope not. That biatch needs to be put in prison for however long of a term the guys would have received.

I'm surprised she's not pleading the Fifth.
 
2007-03-16 03:49:30 PM  
She is not going to jail. That will never happen, that's why we have DAs. She should have been told to STUF & GBTW. But the DA had other plans. Now he should see jail time, but he never will.

They will have to file some type of charge against her, whether it be obstruction or false official statement. Nothing that will get her any jail time, probably.

/IMHO
 
2007-03-16 04:15:18 PM  
I'm not sure that article could be more slanted in favor of the accuser. I wonder if the people they quoted ever think that an accuser would lie?

Put her in the cell with Scooter.

She is not going to jail.

The more interesting question is whether Nifong will go to jail.
 
2007-03-16 04:16:43 PM  
The good side of my brain says she should get fined and be put into prison for a long time.

The bad side says she should be fined and be put into a male prison for a long time. You know...so she's knows the difference between raped and not raped for next time this comes up.

Martha Stewart wishes this were so.

The DA in that case needs to lose his law license, for starters.

It's scatter-brained twits like this chick that makes it harder for women who are actually raped to be believed.

Usually these kinds of charges stick and cause permanent harm, regardless of their validity. I wonder if the amount of press will actually make people realize how rediculous the charges are?

I think jail time is fair for libel, slander, character assassination, perjuy, making false accusation, etc.

Women, children and minorities never lie. So if you are a young black girl you must be telling the truth. Bonus points if you are in a wheelchair.
 
2007-03-16 04:23:30 PM  
Oettinger, the victims' rights advocate, said the mix of the media glare, which included attacks on the accuser's credibility, could contribute to her reluctance to talk about an alleged crime.

Or she could just be a lying cokehead whore full to the eyeballs with other men's seamen. Either way.

Why is anyone still pussyfooting around pretending she is a victim.
 
2007-03-16 04:24:21 PM  
Duke still sucks. Go figure they bring this back to light so they can cry and forget about their loss yesterday.

Excuse me sir, but WTF are you talking about? Are they going to sue the stripper?? Don't think there's a lot of money in that hole. Excuse the pun. Sue the DA? For what? They have not even been tried. No way in hell they have a cause of action against the DA. He may be an asshat that deserves a kick in the hang-downs, but no way can the boys win a judgment against him, or the county.

What Might Be Holding Her Back?

Of course, every possible reason she is "holding back" is mentioned BESIDES her lying out her ass.

Two posts in, and all discussion is over. Jason couldn't've said it better, and I doubt anyone else will be able to either.

cambden4: There were several duke players who came forward and said that they saw him rape her.

I assume you are talking about Nifong here?

Wow, who would have expected such behavior from a stripper? They are usually so level-headed and never have any "issues" or "baggage".

If she did have an 8 ball, I don't think it was the type the submitter implied.

The players paid the price for their lapse in judgement now it is time for her to pay for her lies. In the least, the DA who is pushing this despite the lack of evidence, should have to reimburse the courts the money he wasted on this. What little "real" evidence there is points to the stripper lying.

Ok earliest thread I can find is
Zero of 46 Duke lacrosse players had DNA on the rape victim. Duke sucks, but in a legal way

This lying biatch shouldn't be put in jail, she should be buried under it! This is gonna follow these kids around for the rest of their lives, even though they have been (or will be, I quit paying attention) found innocent. Seems to me the only thing these guys did wrong was to order an ugly stripper!

//fortunately the liar fessed up before it went to court
///not bitter

"Indeed, criticism of the case has led to some calls for Nifong's disbarment. A North Carolina legislator has asked the US Department of Justice to investigate the case. And legal experts say that while prosecutors enjoy absolute immunity inside the courtroom, Nifong's actions as a lead investigator outside the courtroom for this case may have left him exposed to a potential civil lawsuit from the Duke Three."

That and I would sue Duke for pain and suffering for canceling the season plus public comments made by some of the staff.

This is so ignorant. I can't belive it has made it this far. Someone said this is a racist column. They are wrong. The only thing racist out there is the racist against the white man and everyone being PC to cover their own arse! Tell me that this was a 25 year old white man that was held down and forced sexual acts and I guarantee that it wouldn't be in the news like this is. The only reason it is in the news is because it was white men and a black girl! That in itself is racist! If no one pointed out the colors of their skin, it would of never made it to the news!
 
2007-03-16 04:43:13 PM  
Trust me, I go to Duke a lot as I used to live in California.

Now we know you're high

I'd like to be the first to thank ABC for once again showing the faces of those dirty, filthy rapists and continuing to shield the anonymity of that poor, poor, victimized woman.

Ummmm, no. It was such a sensational story because Duke, like it or not, is one of the most prestigious universities in the country. Stop playing the "Persecuted White Male" card, it's pathetic.
