Not guilty. Good for him.
Good, indeed. As a woman, I find some (not all) rape charges ridiculous. As my dad always said about the Mike Tyson rape victim, "So, she went to Mike Tyson's hotel room with him late at night. What was she expecting, stimulating conversation?"
I knew at girl while I was at LSU who went out with a guy who was in the Army while he was on leave. She had a mad, wild crush on this guy, spent the night with him, and bragged about it. A few months later (after the dude had never called her again), there was a date rape information session at our dorm. She stood up and told her story of being raped by that guy. BS.
You can't rape the willing, and unless the girl in question ties him down and rams a blue pill down his throat, he can't "rise to occassion" unless he's willing!
And even if he wasn't, he probably WOULD be by the time she tied him down and fed him a viagra...I know I would be! LOL
Yeah, it's actually pretty tragic how a lot of dishonest women have abused the term "rape". Rape is a terrible, horrifying experience. It's a cause to which I am especially sympathetic because it's happened to women with whom I've been very close throughout my life. But it's such a serious charge that the accuser will always have the upper hand, and a lot of scandalous women have begun to frivilously hurl the charge and whatever guy they regret sleeping with. And in the "guilty until proven innocent" perspective of the court of public opinion, a simple accusation can ruin the reputation of the accused, regardless of whether or not there is any validity to the claim. So the scandalous women are actually hurting the real victims in addition to the accused.
Charles Scott had the talent to play in the NFL but not the type of game changing talent that results in NFL teams overlooking off the field issues. Hopefully someone will now give him the chance to make a team if he decides to pursue an NFL career.
The initial accusation came well after he would have been on an NFL roster. Frankly, I just think he lacked the speed to play RB in the NFL. Plus, he got injured his senior year, so thay may have affected his ability to perform.
I know right? I can hear the intimidation now, "look mister, I'm going to do this to you and I'm not going to stop until your legs are shaking and the neighbors know my name"
uh huh, okay. Thats gonna work.
Cops sometime treat rape victims with insensitivity and there is no excuse for that. But it is the fact that 45% of reported rapes turn out to be hoaxes that desensitizes them. Both genders must behave more responsibly where rape is concerned for the situation to improve.
He was drafted in 2010 and this thread started in 2011. I think (?) he was on the Giants roster at some point, which was not the team that drafted him. You very well may be correct but I'm guessing he was trying hard to find a team to stick with when the accusation came up. No team would give someone like him a chance given the circumstances but now they would (although it may be too late).
Yeah, the original story broke in November 2011, and I can only assume that the incident didn't predate the story by very long. That would mean that he wasn't on a roster at the time (it happened in Gonzales).
