Rape Allowed in San Jose

The D.A. for San Jose has elected not to prosecute a gang rape case due to lack of evidence:

In an editorial published Sunday in the San Jose Mercury News Dolores Carr said while the players’ behavior was quote “abhorrent to us all” — It did not “provide a sufficient basis for a criminal prosecution”.

The baseball players themselves certainly didn’t act at all guilty:

“One of the guys who was in the room said ‘This is her fault. She got drunk and she did this to herself.'”

She apologized for being raped:

That she apologized for doing nothing but being an easy target…..yeah. I’m sorry, too.

But I just keep coming back to the words of that guy in the room: “This is her fault. She got drunk and she did this to herself.”. JackGoff had this to say in the comments for Amanda’s post:

She got drunk and she did this to herself.

So, the 17 year old bought the beer, eh?

You know, I really can’t find the words.

She also ignored the warning label on the booze: “Ingestion = Consent”.

“What we saw was rape. It was a crime,” says Grolle. “It was assault against a 17 year girl. I will forever know in my heart that is what happened.”

“It makes us think that no girl is ever going to want to come forward and say they were violated as this girl was, because they’re going to think it doesn’t even matter,” says Chief Elk. “But it does.”

Grolle and Chief Elk’s actions are helping it matter. Spread their word.

  1. She apologized for being raped:

    That she apologized for doing nothing but being an easy target…..

    It’s the Age of Harry Whittingtons.

  2. At least it looks like the guys are getting expelled.

    I just wish the DA would prosecute SOMETHING, anything. There’s GOT to be enough evidence for something. Possibilities: sexual assault, assault, statutory rape, serving alcohol to a minor, kidnapping, public intoxication…

  3. Moron,
    Ugh, but to a degree, yes.
    Elaine,
    It is great news the guys are getting expelled. Bravo to the University for taking the necessary steps. It is even more confounding when you think about the message this sends about the permissibility of rape. I hope the D.A. reconsiders.

  4. The boys were not expelled I go to school with them. They are busy living day to day lives again happy that the truth is slowly coming to light on the girl…there is so much dirt the public would just be so upset about on this girl. Media starved clowns is what you all are. The De Anza men are innocent.

  5. Justin,
    Thanks for the update, it does not look like they are being punished at all.

    That is bullshit.

    From everything that we have heard, they do not sound at all innocent. What kind of dirt are you suggesting? What kind of dirt could ever possibly excuse rape?
