Her identification was pretty damned accurate, because his DNA matched.
Also, "she waited an hour to report anything"????? How... you... are you just... oh Jesus Tapdancing Christ on a cracker, man...
|11 hours 32 min ago||Nope nope nope||
The problem is you're trying make a he-said-she-said meet the standard of "beyond a reasonable doubt." That's REALLY FREEKING HARD. No one who entered the room after it started could testify as to the actions of the parties when they started having sex. The case is really, REALLY hard to make.
The legal system errs on the side of the defendant. And it does so for good reasons. But don't think for a MINUTE that the lack of charges speaks to anything beyond the ability to get a conviction.
|12 hours 16 min ago||You're probably right.||
I think I honestly overlooked the fact that they beat State, even if it was in South Bend
ED: also, thanks for the correction. I hate typpos. Their bad.
|12 hours 25 min ago||Voluntary intox||
is rarely a defense for general intent crimes like rape. If it's a specific intent crime (like larceny or burglary), voluntary intox can be used to argue that "I was way too hammered to form the intent to permenantly deprive you of that property." And even then, it's probably a last-resort argument.
|12 hours 41 min ago||So...||
This isn't step one in ANY BEST CASE SCENARIO.
|12 hours 44 min ago||Yes and no||
It's a circular argument. SUFFICIENT intoxication negates consent. But what is sufficient intoxication? Enough intoxication to remove the ability to consent.
There's a subjective component as well. If a victim is too drunk to consent, but offers 'consent' under circumstances that would lead a reasonable person to believe she had the capacity to do so, that's not a crime.
It's a terrible area of law with terrible gray areas that destroy bunches of lives.

This is a stupid post.
But you raise a good point.
But you suck.
DAMNIT the lettuce and tomato are on the outside and the bun is in the middle. How am I supposed to eat this compliment now?

"Effort" and "desire," eh?
Tell us more.
|1 day 12 hours ago||Nope||
We only accept Stanley Nickels.
|2 days 11 hours ago||Since when||
Is embarassing the institution grounds for a suspension? That's tremendously arbitrary. Are we going to discipline Stauskas for the stank-face or the 3-goggles? What about Hart's "Little Brother" comment? What about when a player gives the "shhhhh" sign in a visiting stadium? What about a guy who commits a bonehead penalty on the field? Or a guy who just drops an f-bomb generally?
Punching a guy is dangerous. Flipping the bird is unseemly and unbecoming. The chasm between the two is vast.
|2 days 12 hours ago||Suggestion:|
|2 days 12 hours ago||Nah||
You're gonna start suspending people for flipping the bird? That's a "run stadium stairs until you can't feel your toes" kind of infraction.
|2 days 12 hours ago||You're wrong||
A bunch of people here spoke up in favor of a suspension for Lewan.

WHY DOES JOHN FEINSTEIN LIKE WORLD HUNGER???
|3 days 11 hours ago||9 men.||
|3 days 11 hours ago||There was a lot of green grass...||
But as Space Coyote noted, a lineman slipped behind the play, and as a result ended up RIGHT in the line of the throw back to Gardner (hence the high throw).
|3 days 12 hours ago||I will say||
Can I tell you how happy I was that the Transcontinental made a comeback? Oh, to see it carried out by Devin Gardner instead of John Navarre...
|3 days 12 hours ago||They did some stuff different||
They actually used some of the counters people have been moaning for; they ran more screens (and especially misdirection/throwback screens), they went vertical off of the bubble action, etc.

You didn't care for Rocky, eh?
|4 days 11 hours ago||Okay, this is bullshit||
The playcall, from what I could tell, it was a triangle concept where that creates a high-low read. But even if they knew that was the set of routes (which I really doubt), they still didn't know who was running what, and the fact that Gallon was going to be open in another half-second pretty much tells you that OSU didn't have the super-magic bullet they seem to claim.

Drew Sharp strikes again
No Drew Sharp.
|4 days 17 hours ago||Wait, what?||
That's not how rules work. A bad call isn't a players fault just because he creates an opportunity for a ref to screw up.
|4 days 17 hours ago||Same with this||
Points return after New Year
|4 days 17 hours ago||Dumb idea or no||
This kind of crap still remains out of bounds.

It's more about not wanting to have to defend himself after every post, but also not wanting to provide the forum to the people from whom he doesn't want to defend himself. Just a guess.
