Caught in a Web of Lies at UVA
Police in Charlottesville, Virginia, spent months investigating the claims made in a Rolling Stone story and found no truth:She's not even a very effective serial liar, unable to keep her facts consistent, and apparently having plagiarized large portions of her story from TV shows and romance novels.
A four-month police investigation into an alleged gang rape at the University of Virginia that Rolling Stone magazine described in graphic detail produced no evidence of the attack and was stymied by the accuser’s unwillingness to cooperate, authorities said Monday.Feminists immediately seized on that — Chief Longo’s unwillingness to rule out the possibility that “something terrible” happened — to insist that Jackie’s rape story could be true, except it’s really not. Jackie’s story was a snipe hunt, a wild goose chase. Here’s the telltale clue:
The article, titled “A rape on campus,” focused on a student identified only as “Jackie” who said she was raped at the Phi Kappa Psi fraternity more than two years earlier. . . .
There were numerous discrepancies between the article, published in November 2014, and what investigators found, said Charlottesville Police Chief Timothy Longo, who took care not to accuse Jackie of lying.
The case is suspended, not closed, and the fact that investigators could not find evidence years later “doesn’t mean that something terrible didn’t happen to Jackie,” Longo said. . . .
Asked if Jackie would be charged with making a false report, he said: “Absolutely not.”
Longo said Jackie’s first mention of an alleged assault came without key details, during a meeting she had with a dean about an academic issue in May 2013. The dean brought in police, but the case was dropped because Jackie didn’t want them to investigate, Longo said.This is it, you see? Jackie is a serial liar.
In any case, the “sexual act” she described that year was “not consistent with what was described” in the Rolling Stone article.
And she's not the only liar: Sex, Lies and ‘Broken People’
Bobby Bradshaw spent seven months in jail because a crazy woman with a fake Russian accent falsely accused him of rape:As Auric Goldfinger said "Once is happenstance, twice is coincidence; three times is enemy action". But when you get to four, five, six, seven, eight, and nine, it's beginning to look like an enemy strategy: Stacy finds six more cases of feminists inventing rape charges:
“If everyone knew the whole story, they could make a movie out of it,” he said. “It’s something you couldn’t write. It’s too crazy.” . . .(Hat-tip: Instapundit.) DNA evidence cleared Bradshaw in this case, which points to the basic problem with the whole “rape epidemic” hysteria feminists have ginned up on college campuses. Over and over again, we are confronted with dubious cases — often reported to university officials months after the alleged incidents — where there is no evidence beyond the claims of the accuser. There’s no DNA, no medical exam, no 911 call, no police report, just a woman making an accusation that her drunken hookup with a fellow student was rape. It’s always a “he-said/she-said” scenario and there’s no way any prosecutor would take a case like that to criminal court. Under pressure from feminists (and federal authorities) to “do something” in such cases, universities have set up extra-judicial disciplinary tribunals where accused male students can be subjected to administrative punishment without the constitutional due-process protections they would have in an actual courtroom.
At the July hearing, the woman, speaking with a thick accent, testified that she had only lived in the country since 2008. But when Defense Attorney Brandy Spurgin visited her later in Warren County, where she was in jail for violating probation in another case, the accent was gone.
“The biggest red flag for me was learning that the accent was fake,” Spurgin said.
The woman testified that when she met Bradshaw she was completing a drug rehabilitation program and living in a halfway house called Oasis. She testified she’d voluntarily entered drug court in Warren County. She also had an outstanding warrant for domestic violence charges in Citrus County, Fla.
Records show that in 2009 she pleaded guilty to tampering with evidence, and in 2012 she was charged with filing a false report in a sexual assault case.
Feminists Lie About Rape
In the comments on an earlier post about the UVA rape hoax, someone appended a list of similar hoaxes perpetrated at colleges. The original source of this list appears to be by Eric Owens at the Daily Caller:It's to the point that, given the known very low rate of campus rapes, and the high number of false reports involving feminist activists, that any rape or sexual harassment charge by a woman with a record a a feminist sympathizer should be presumed to be a false accusation, unless there is dispositive evidence to the contrary.
Feminists do this deliberately — purposefully making false claims of rape — because it advances their ideological agenda.
- In 1990, Mariam Kashani, a sophomore at George Washington University, who was a rape counselor and worked for a rape crisis hotline, told the school newspaper about a white woman who was raped by two black men on campus. The men held the woman at knifepoint and the men had “particularly bad body odor”. When the two men were finished, Kashinai said, they laughed at the woman and told her she was “pretty good for a white girl”. When her story crumbled, Kashani said she was really sorry and insisted that she “had hoped the story, as reported, would highlight the problems of safety for women”. . . .
Two Women Forced to Apologize for Calling Male Librarian ‘Sexual Predator’
Judging from the retractions issued by Nina de Jesus and Lisa Rabey, their lawyers have advised them that making statements with “no factual basis at all” was a very bad idea. You can read Joe Murphy’s explanation of his $1.25 million lawsuit and ponder the difference between (a) branding someone a “sexual predator” de novo, and (b) citing previously published accounts and legal documents about a “notorious and thoroughly evil” felon. It would appear that Ms. de Jesus and Ms. Rabey have learned a valuable lesson. I hope they paid full price for that lesson.And it's not like women have their own hands clean: Teach Women Not to Rape
The weirdness has been “newly augmented” in Scottsdale:Instapundit has had an ongoing series of "Teach women not to rape" posts, in an attempt to point out that both sexes have a stake in having rape charges investigated and charged with proper due process when appropriate.
An Arizona woman is accused of allowing seven boys at a bar mitzvah to fondle her newly augmented breasts.
Lindsey Radomski, 32, also performed a sex act on one of the teenagers at the party in Scottsdale last Saturday, police say.
The yoga teacher was drunk when she allegedly exposed herself at the Jewish male coming-of-age celebration for up to 100 guests.
Radomski was told to “sleep it off” in one of the bedrooms after showing her breasts to a group of five adults and again to a group of boys by a swimming pool at the home.
In the early hours of Sunday 22 March, Radomski allegedly invited seven boys, ranging in age from 11 to 15, to her room and allowed them to feel her breasts.
Later, all the boys left the bedroom except for a 15-year-old, according to police.
It is alleged that Radomski performed a sex act on him. . . .
