This case is following a similar path to the Kobe Bryant case (except that girl had semen in her, it just happened to be from 3 different guys not name Kobe Bryant). Like Kobe’s case, you have a prosecutor who is up for election and basically pandering to get votes. I mean the guy gave a speech to an all black audience today which was basically campaigning for re-election. And like the Kobe case (where from the getgo the DA knew he had a crazy witness and no evidence), this DA refuses to let it go. Nope, he’s going to ride this thing into the ground to get votes and drag all these guys through the mud doing it.
It is totally, 100% impossible to be gang raped and not have the guys DNA on you. It is impossible for a lab to fuck up that many PCR reactions. They could get a few false negatives, but not the entire team. And the hospital staff even said that the girl didn’t say a word about being gang raped by a bunch of white guys when she came into the hospital. And then the DA comes out and says it doesn’t matter, you can build a case on the word of one girl. Bullshit.
I’m all for prosecuting legit rape cases aggressively. But shit, you need to have the goddamn evidence in hand before you go making accusations. If there was DNA it wouldn’t prove anything in and of itself, but I’d concede its a reasonable place to start. No DNA anywhere on her from any player on the team–where is the case? These guys aren’t aliens. They leave hair, skin and bits of DNA all over the place like the rest of us and any mildly competent lab is going to find it if its there.
I never quite understood why judges and prosecutors are elected positions–you just wind up with this perverted justice because some douche is trying to win back his office.
