how many of you remember this bullshit case? i remember my sociology professor going nuts about it then it coming out that the bitch lied about the gang rape lol.
1.) I did not expect to see lacrosse on /sp/ so thanks for that
2.) I am the head coach of a college lacrosse team and, when this happened I was in college playing lacrosse. I was worried because people started joking around calling me and other laxers rapists and we were kind of concerned that the big break into the mainstream for our sport was represented as us being a bunch of white rich assholes who go around raping people.
Thank fucking god it came out that it was all bullshit, I might've never lived it down.
E$PN ran this story into the ground attacking the accused and defending the "victim" when it first broke, then completely dropped it when it came out it was all bullshit. I hope the 30 for 30 highlights that and blows E$PN the fuck out.
It was covered by both the NYtimes and WSJ. I don't know what more major outlets you want.
>Muh CNN, MSNBC
People watching 24/7 cable tv aren't gonna care anways. It doesn't make money for those stations.
Sure, but it's gotten about 1/10th of the coverage of Duke and UVA, which of course weren't even real rapes.
But look at the tone: when rich white frat boys are accused, it's all about white privilege and The Narrative. When Muslims abuse by the hundreds (or the thousands, in the case of Rotherham), it's all about not jumping to conclusions.
>"ugh that man looked at my breasts!"
>"h-he touched me!"
Again, that's part of it. But it took 5 days for the German media to even report it. We all know why.
Not true (pic related). It was mainly due to the fact the the Cologne police tried to hide their own incompetence.
I'm from Cologne btw.
