1. Huh?

The woman that was the accuser in the Duke lacrosse story stabbed her boyfriend, who just died.

The lacrosse team has nothing to do with this crime.

:shrug:

4. It's a joke. She blamed them for a rape that never occurred.
So why not this?

6. I thought it was so obvious...
Edited on Thu Apr-14-11 11:54 AM by dems_rightnow
That the sarcasm tag was not necessary. I see I was wrong.

34. No, it shouldn't have been necessary. I'm pretty sure that Ian Anderson had a few DUers in mind ...
when he penned "Thick as a Brick".

2. If she had been prosecuted for making false claims, perhaps she would be in jail and
this guy would be alive.

she did later.

21. So we should indict Cooper for murder since he declined to prosecute her?

41. False police report is only a misdemeanor.
Edited on Fri Apr-15-11 08:47 AM by LisaL
Even if she were tried and convicted for that, she'd be out a long time ago. There was a chance to put her in prison for while: she went on trial for arson quite recently but was not convicted.

"Crystal Mangum, the accuser in the Duke lacrosse rape scandal, is free and will be reunited with her children after a jury deadlocked on the most serious charge she faced from a domestic incident earlier this year."

gotten much for it at all.
She was recently on trial for arson, but the jury deadlocked and so she was let out of jail (where she was while awaiting trial).

3. Um, I think you misread the article.
Edited on Thu Apr-14-11 11:53 AM by Akoto
The accuser of the Duke Lacrosse rape (which did not happen), Crystal Magnum, appears to be the killer. The article clearly states that she stabbed her boyfriend in the torso over a dispute. Nothing about Duke was involved.

8. No, you misread
The woman who accused the team stabbed her "boyfriend" earlier this month. He died of his wounds just now.

"Boyfriend" is the way they are describing the victim's relationship to her.

wouldn't want to jump to conclusions and smear an innocent person.

15. She will forever be linked to them since the false accusations.
Otherwise, no one would have heard of Crystal Mangum, not nationally, at least.

20. The one good thing to come out of that was Mike Nifong was stopped
He had plans on going National - and thankfully he was stopped before he became a huge albatross around the party's neck

22. He had bigger political plans? What an ego.
I wish more people had learned from this, though. The Amanda Knox prosecutor is on the same self-serving vendetta and few people here seem to have noticed.

14. You've misrepresented the contents of this article.
In actuality, it appears as if the young gentlewoman who accused the Duke Lacrosse team of rape is the actual culprit in this case. It's an understandable confusion as originally...

Oh wait a minute. I see what you've done there.

30. Remember the school professors?
I'm sick of this story .We all know the accuser is not a fantastic person.
It was a false rape report. We don't have to follow her life forever to keep reminding us she is on the wrong path in life.
What bothered me was the 'sign this statement against the lacrosse players' which all these so-called educators were all too happy to sign and condemn without, mind you, a single grain of proof.
Disgusting individuals for what THEY did.

Edited on Fri Apr-15-11 08:51 AM by LisaL
I am also not sure how appropriate it is to have "duke lacrosse" in the actual headlines about Crystal Mangum's boyfriend dying.
