    Default Finally, a male's life isnt ruined by simple accusation of rape.

    I am not a fan of FSU or of this QB, but at least there wasnt an overzealous prosecuter trying to make a name for himself by dragging this kid through the mud without any proof of rape, or that he did it for that matter.

    Meggs (the DA) has said he wanted to make sure prosecutors completed a thorough investigation before making a final decision. He has also said several times that it's up to prosecutors to determine whether there is a "reasonable" chance of conviction.

    I guess one question I have is where are all the "NOW" groups calling for a special investigation against this male and accusing the DA of playing favorites? Wasnt this what the DA in FL where Zimmerman lived was trying to do but the special interest groups called for blood if Zimmerman wasnt tried?

    It might also be that cause the town is a "Big football town" the case is getting pushed under, for sporting reasons.

    It could very well be that not enough evidence was even presented to take it to court, this statistically happens at a rate of about 34 of every 46 reported sexual assaults/rapes.

    It will be of little avail to the people that the laws are made by men of their own choice if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood.

    And could be the fact that she has memory lapses and multiple DNA samples in the one pair of panties which would make it hard for anyone to pin point the ONE time it might have actually been rape.

    I saw a tweet from ESPN this morning that a civil trial is unlikely. We shall see... In any event, I would bet this will have a bearing on how NFL teams view this young man come draft time. No one wants a "problem" on their team.
    When things go wrong in your command, start searching for the reason in increasingly larger concentric circles around your own desk.

    I think it important not to "attack the victim/accuser" in any case, especially if I've never met them personally and only have read about them in a questionable news source. God help you if any of it was unfair and the accusation was legitimate.

    Most legitimate reports even never make it to the court system whatsoever. The entire process is very intimidating for the one filing the report (naturally so in the process of gathering evidence). If the victim delays too long in getting medical treatment, showers before the investigation, delays the investigation due to emotional trauma, or a whole slew of other reasons there may be insufficient evidence available to even bring it in front of a criminal trial. When barely 1/4 of the reported cases make it into a trial, it says the system of filtration definitely weighs in favor of the accused.

    His case was dropped last spring because of lack of evidence. I'm not sure why it was even reopened.

    I didnt attack anyone. I was just stating what was reported.

    Not in the publics eye. Usually the accused, like in the duke case, looses a lot of credibility from just being accused. But then, maybe that was because of race baiters taggin along to "help" the poor black stripper against the evil rich white kids? I am very pleased to see the justice process take the steps it did this time without media pressure.

    I agree the media has no ethical business being within 5 miles of anything to do with these cases, some details should just be left alone, regardless of how much it "sells".

    The article however is quite happy to conduct the attacks, and regurgitating the article is essentially the same as condoning such action. Fox News is a deplorable organization as it is, Jon Stewart would be out of a job if Fox News wasn't as detestable as it is.
