Duke incident paints a troubling picture
Minutes after the alleged rape occurred, it was revealed this week by Durham County authorities, one of the players fired off an e-mail to his teammates. He wrote about hiring more strippers.
He wrote: "I plan on killing the bitches as soon as the (sic) walk in and proceding (sic) to cut their skin off while (ejaculating) in my duke (sic) issue spandex."
Feel free to wince, because that is pretty hard to write off as a drunken, distasteful joke among friends. It's abhorrent. It's the stuff of a serial killer's secret journal.
Contrasted with this....
Two weeks after the incident, a Duke lacrosse player attended an on-campus "Take Back the Night" march during Sexual Assault Awareness Week. He was interviewed by Duke's student newspaper.
"I completely support this event and this entire week," he told The Chronicle.
That was Ryan McFadyen speaking. He's the guy who, according to a search warrant affidavit, typed the e-mail about killing bitches.
Can anyone say creepy??? Sick?? Wrong????
