No evidence of rape at UVA fraternity say Charlottesville police

No evidence of rape at UVA fraternity say Charlottesville police

‘Rape culture’ hardest hit

The seminal case in the fight against ‘rape culture’ ended today, leaving a giant, gaping hole in the Rape Culture agenda.

An investigation conducted by the Charlottesville Police Department found no evidence of rape at the accused University of Virginia fraternity.

Months ago, Rolling Stone broke Jackie’s story. Jackie claimed she’d been gang raped by members of Phi Kappa Psi in 2012. When the Rolling Stone article sparked national outrage, UVA’s administration acted swiftly and without facts, punishing Greek life on campus.

Then the Washington Post began to dig deeper into the Rolling Stone shocker. And that’s when the story began to quickly unravel and was eventually debunked in entirety.

Today, the New York Times reports:

“I can’t prove that something didn’t happen, and there may come a point in time in which this survivor, or this complaining party or someone else, may come forward with some information that might help us move this investigation further,” Police Chief Timothy Longo told a roomful of reporters here.

“That doesn’t mean that something terrible did not happen to Jackie on the evening of Sept. 28, 2012,” Chief Longo said, referring to the accuser and adding that his department was simply unable to corroborate her account. He added, “This case is not closed by any stretch of the imagination.”

But Monday’s news conference did little to clear up the sense of confusion that has surrounded the Rolling Stone article, “A Rape on Campus,” which detailed what appeared to be a brutal gang rape of a student, identified only as Jackie, in an upstairs room of the Phi Kappa Psi house in 2012, followed by a botched response by the school’s administration.

Asked why he did not officially clear the fraternity and its members of wrongdoing, Chief Longo replied, “I think I just did.”

The Rolling Stone UVA fable isn’t the only ‘rape culture’ banner story to be debunked. Last month, a student accused of rape by mattress wielding Emma Sulkowicz shared his side of the story wherein allegations brought against him were found to be falsified.

How many more reporters will sacrifice their careers at the alter of Rape Culture? And how many more debunked Rape Culture stories must be endured, how many more lives destroyed, before public opinion stands firmly with that whole “innocent until proven guilty” thing?

Truth was not the point. It was the victim.

Oh, come on! In any other case, the police would have closed this case a long time ago. The cops are trying to play nice. Would like to be a fly on the wall when they are discussing Jackie behind closed doors.

    High profile cases have to handled differently just because they are high profile. That’s just reality.

    Business as usual subjected to exacting scrutiny will almost never hold up well.

    Every chief of police in the country would do well to seek training in handling high profile cases just in case.

Put this one right alongside “Hands up. Don’t shoot” in the lore of deception.

Truth is never the point. As Eleanor Holmes Norton, DC’s Democratic Delegate to the House so eloquently stated “Its not the facts of the matter that count, its the narrative”
And so it is in this day and age and time of Obama.
The area around the UVA campus was also Jessie Mathews Jr stomping….err… killing ground.
One of the first rapes occurred in Fairfax where the victim managed to escape Jessie’s intent and provided police with a physical description and some DNA. In the meantime the rapes and disappearances continued around Charlottesville, coinciding more or less with the beginnings of the autumn semesters. Eventually police recovered a body and some DNA which proved a match with the Fairfax rapists DNA. The Charlotsville police immediately knew they had a black, serial rapist and murderer operating in their midst but they chose to remain silent due to political correctness. And the parents continued to send their daughters to Charlottesville for Jessie to slaughter. There’s even a white boy doing time for a murder which might have really been one of Jessie’s victims. The last images of the victim alive show her walking in front of a red object the color of Jessie Matthew’s car. The FBI attributed the red to the reddish orange roof of the MacDonalds the camera was located in. The only problem was the surveillance camera was located inside the Macdonalds on the interior ceiling making the red orange roof overhead invisible.

Everyone cooperated but Jackie. Suddenly she didn’t want to talk about it anymore. How strange. /s/

Notice that every one of the so-called campus rapes have white males as the culprit? As with Duke Lacrosse, etc and the “victim” is a young back woman or a young white woman that has taken a women’s studies course? Never do the powers that be ever blame a young black male for these crimes. That is not going to happen anytime soon, because the black male is in the protected class.

    The loony chick toting a mattress around is literally doing it for class credit. Frankly, I think slandering an innocent man should be ground for expulsion, not a requirement for a grade.

    Stan25. Katie Rouse (aka “who?”) is available for comment if anybody were interested in asking.

Any time there is an allegation of rape or sex abuse on a campus the university needs to bring in an independent professional investigator to do a thorough investigation BEFORE the university takes any action against the accused student(s). And of course that has to be in addition to a process that protects the rights of all parties. Without that universities will lurch from scandal to scandal, harming many innocent students in the process.

    Any time there is an allegation of rape or sex abuse on a campus the university needs to bring in an independent professional investigator to do a thorough investigation…

    I’m sorry, what are the police for then? It’s their job to do a thorough, professional, independent investigation. That’s what they’re trained to do! That’s what they’re paid to do! That’s what they’re there for!

    Rape is a crime. A very serious crime. Crimes need to be reported to the police, people. And as soon as possible, not two years down the road.

    How are we supposed to take sex crimes on campus seriously if the alleged victims of these sex crimes don’t even take them seriously enough themselves to report them to the police?

“there may come a point in time in which this survivor, or this complaining party or someone else, may come forward with some information that might help us move this investigation further.”

Was there, or was there not, a complaint filed, and by whom?

    Translation: These felony charges will remain hanging over the frat members like a sword supported by a single thread for the foreseeable future. All it will take is a single ‘witness’ who reads up on the events and constructs a fictious story in which they hope to get their fifteen minutes of fame and these guys will wind up paraded through the media circus again and again and again…

    The Left demands blood, and they will rage and destroy until they have drank their fill.

Fake crises pave the way for fake solutions.

In other words, fascism.

This is merely a case of Reichstag Rape, spawning hateful, useful idiots like that lying crazy woman who drags around a mattress claiming someone schtupped her on it without asking her first. (Does she ever change the sheets?)

I blame Sabrina Rubin Erdely. She went looking for a rape story, and when she could not find one, she fabricated one. She needs to pay some serious consequences.
