The Attacks On The Duke Lacrosse Players Continue

Posted by Casey on April 13, 2007

The latest comes from an ABC reporter who isn’t happy that the players are getting sympathy for being wrongfully accused of a horrible crime that didn’t even happen.

ABC:

Perhaps the outpouring of sympathy for Reade Seligman, Collin Finnerty and David Evans is just a bit misplaced. They got special treatment in the justice system–both negative and positive. The conduct of the lacrosse team of which they were members was not admirable on the night of the incident, to say the least. And there are so many other victims of prosecutorial misconduct in this country who never get the high-priced legal representation and the high-profile, high-minded vindication that it strikes me as just a bit unseemly to heap praise and sympathy on these particular men.

This is truly disgusting. So because there are other people out there who are victims of prosecutorial misconduct, with less money than these players, we shouldn’t feel sorry for them? Who cares if their conduct on the night in question was admirable? They are a bunch of college guys who behaved like college guys. This high and mighty reporter expects all of us to believe that he’s never seen a stripper.

It gets worse.

So as we rightly cover the vindication of these young men and focus on the genuine ordeal they have endured, let us also remember a few other things:

They were part of a team that collected $800 to purchase the time of two strippers.

Their team specifically requested at least one white stripper.

During the incident, racial epithets were hurled at the strippers.

Colin Finnerty was charged with assault in Washington, DC, in 2005.

The young men were able to retain a battery of top-flight attorneys, investigators and media strategists.

Wow. College guys getting strippers is reason enough to not be upset they were charged with a crime that never occurred? I guess a bunch of white guys wanting one white stripper is racist now … that’s ridiculous. Everyone who requests a specific type of stripper is prejudiced I guess. I wonder if this reporter looks at who stars in the porno he watches, or if he picks movies with predominantly white women (or men). Racial epithets were hurled by the stripper too … dumbass! Finnerty’s previous assault charge has nothing to do with this case whatsoever. He was never accused of raping a woman before.

Then this crap head brings the Rutgers women’s basketball team into it.

They are very differently situated in life from, say, the young women of the Rutgers University women’s basketball team.

THAT IS RACIST! How in the hell does he know that the women on the Rutgers team are poor? After all, there are two white girls on the team, and Rutgers tuition cost between $30,000-$38,000. Hardly chump change.

Terry Moron Moran continues:

And, MOST IMPORTANT, there are many, many cases of prosecutorial misconduct across our country every year. The media covers few, if any, of these cases. Most of the victims in these cases are poor or minority Americans–or both. I would hate to say the color of their skin is one reason journalists do not focus on these victims of injustices perpetrated by police and prosecutors, but I am afraid if we ask ourselves the question honestly, we would likely find that it is.

Hey Terry, who made this a media circus? Nifong did. Who prejudged these INNOCENT Duke players? The Black Panthers, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and the Duke faculty. It also sounds like YOU prejudged these players as well. Anytime there is a major scandal at one of our universities it makes front page news, and this case was no different.

I hope someone sees Mr. Moran’s nice car, and calls him privileged. I hope someone catches him with some porno with a mostly white cast, and calls him a racist. Mostly, I hope Finnerty’s next assault charge comes from beating the hell out of this guy for slandering Finnerty’s good name.
