Police report shows Duke accuser's rape story changed several times

Aaron Beard:

A woman who accused three Duke University lacrosse players of rape initially told police she was attacked by five men and changed her story several times, at one point denying she had been attacked, according to a police report released Friday by a defense attorney.

Authorities said previously in affidavits the accuser reported she was raped by three men at a March 13 lacrosse team party where she was hired to perform as an exotic dancer with a second woman.

In the report by Durham Officer G.D. Sutton, dated in the early morning of March 14, the woman said she was one of four dancers at the party and that she was attacked by five men. The woman also said she had not been raped, according to Sutton's report.

District Attorney Mike Nifong won indictments against three players and has said they were the only ones implicated by the evidence.

Victims rights advocates say it's not uncommon for an assault victim to have trouble answering questions in the hours immediately after an attack, when they are often emotional and unable to focus on describing what has happened.

A Duke police office described the accuser in the lacrosse case as "crying uncontrollably and visibly shaken" when speaking with her at a hospital hours after the party.

"Victims in these cases often may very well say something somewhat inconsistent immediately afterward and might still be telling the absolute truth," said Stan Goldman, a Loyola Law School professor and former Los Angeles County public defender.

"But ... I've never seen a case go to trial with this many inconsistencies in the victim's sequence of events," he said.

DA Should Drop Case

Do these feminist "victim's rights advocates" also know that people who lie about being raped also have difficulties keeping track of what they said?

I think they do, but we'll never hear a "victim's right advocate" advocating the 47 members of the Duke lacrosse team who were victimized by the stripper's/prostitute's lie.

Mike Nifong said a rape drug could have been used, but no toxicity test was done, and this evidence was in Nifong’s possession at the tiem.

Mike Nifong claimed DNA would reveal the guilty, The stripper’s body was completely void of any sign of a sexual assault (except for signs of recent vaginal and anal from her boyfriend). The alleged crime scene was completely devoid of DNA.

It is impossible that a crime scene with three drunk men in a small enclosed room with a fighting and clawing woman being orally, virginally, and anally penetrated not leave any DNA evidence of urine, blood, vaginal fluid, sweat, fecal matter, scat smears, saliva, tears, or semen... especially if condoms were used. How would they take off the condoms during all this chaos without spilling, smearing, or touching the content inside or outside of the condom?

When investigators questioned the stripper after DNA tests on the semen found inside her vagina and rectum didn’t match any of the Duke players, the stripper admitted to having had sex with at least three men around the time of the alleged rape. The stripper named her boyfriend and two men who drove her to Duke. She also confessed to using a vibrating sex toy vaginally during a performance, prior to the Duke party, for a man and woman.

The rape exam revealed that the stripper had vaginal swelling and a scrape on her knee and scratches on her ankle, but no signs of a violent or assault of any kind.

All the evidence suggests that the striper lied about being raped, and Durham DA Mike Nifong aided and abetted in the malicious prosecution of innocent boys.
