Duke Faker: "I'm going to get paid by the white boys"

That's what a strip club bouncer says Crystal Magnum, the Duke Rape Faker, told him a few days after she cried rape. She was back at work within a week, "as regular as pie", he says. "The other girls would have known if something had happened. If another dancer had been beat up or raped by a bunch of white boys, there would have been a ruckus."

Sure, this guy might be lying. And even if telling the truth, a rape victims might return to a strip job days after a real rape, and even brag about "getting paid" by her assailants, as civil redress is a legitimate right for victims of crime. But: WHERE IS THE EVIDENCE THAT SHOULD CONVINCE ANYBODY THAT A CRIME OCCURRED?

Steven A. Smith, on his ESPN sports talk show, recently insisted that "if the players were black from a black college and the accuser a white girl from Duke, those boys would go to prison for a very long time." Nonsense.

Prior to any facts emerging other than the so-called races of the accuser and accused, a bunch -- A *BUNCH* -- of honkies on Duke's campus instantly launched a daily and ever-growing protest demanding the arrest of the accused and many other measures against the entire team. These protesters -- these cracker protesters -- caused the national media to take up the accuser's case, and the DA to pursue charges. But the FACTs led to those protesters dispersing, and many of them transforming their opinions, and the a second all-black pro-accuser movement arose.

Surely if these honkies were willing to demand prison for rich fellow honkey classmates based entirely on a mere allegation by a black stripper, they would with equal relish support accused black guys with as many facts supporting them as are supporting these Duke players. And we can be sure that all the current pro-accuser black protesters would support falsely accused black basketball players. Thus we may be sure that falsely accused black players would have bi-racial protesters in their corner, including the original honkey-led protesters who successfully won for the false black accuser national and prosecutor support.

It appears to me that the very disturbed Crystal Magnum invented the rape charge on the spur of the moment, to avoid public intoxication arrest and the attending mandatory test for illegal drugs. Any design to obtain civil damages or a payoff from "the white boys" seems to have materialized after she got herself into the rape charge situation.

This NYT article has Magnum back strip club dancing 10 days after her rape claim, but that comes during a time when she says that the violence against her still caused "great pain" (her Duke dance partner noticed no injury moments after the alleged rape, and claims Magnum wanted to return to the Duke house to "earn more money"; also the cops who were arresting her about an hour later noticed no injuries, nor did a grocery store security guard who called the cops.)

Duke Rape Accuser Was at Work 10 Days Later, Club Owner Says

DURHAM, N.C., Nov. 2 — The woman who accused three Duke University lacrosse players of raping and assaulting her after she was hired to strip at a party on March 13 went back to work at a strip club 10 days later, the owner of the club said in an interview on Thursday.

Defense lawyers said that information undercut the woman’s credibility because she would have been performing even as she continued to complain to doctors about pain.

The degree of the woman’s injuries has been central to the case. According to case files, detectives found that she had difficulty walking or sitting in the days immediately after she reported being attacked and that she told medical personnel up until several weeks later that her neck and back pains were a result of the attack.

Last month, “60 Minutes” broadcast a video excerpt that it said showed her dancing at a club two weeks after the party.

Victor O. Olatoye, owner of the Platinum Club in Hillsborough, N.C., where the woman worked, had signed an affidavit for the Durham district attorney saying she had not performed at his club since February, and that the video had to have been taken before March 13.

But in the interview Thursday, Mr. Olatoye, 44, said that after filing his affidavit on Oct. 18 he found records showing that the woman had worked on March 23, March 24 and March 25. Mr. Olatoye also said he recognized her dancing on the video, even though her face was obscured.

“I saw the clip and I believe that was her, yes,” he said, adding that she has not worked at the club since March 25.

Mr. Olatoye said that a day after he had signed the affidavit he told the district attorney’s office that he needed to change it. But an investigator for the office, Linwood Wilson, said Mr. Olatoye never told him about the new information, and added that he was now expected to file a new affidavit on Friday.

William J. Thomas II, a lawyer representing a lacrosse player who was not indicted, said the video showed a “vigorous dance routine.”

“I would say someone who continues to dance and perform in these clubs as she has would be inconsistent with someone who was in great pain,” Mr. Thomas said.

The woman, who could not be reached for comment, complained of intense vaginal pain during a sexual assault exam on March 14 and then could barely walk or sit without pain on March 16, according to a case report by a police investigator.

Hospital records show visits on March 15, March 28 and April 3 in which she cited neck and knee pain from the alleged attack. In at least one visit, she asked for a narcotic painkiller. The woman had a history of neck and back pain and was taking Flexeril, a powerful muscle relaxant, the files show.

Joseph B. Cheshire, a lawyer for one defendant, said Mr. Olatoye’s statement was “powerful evidence.” Mr. Cheshire said the woman’s activities contradicted her claims of injury and her statement to Michael B. Nifong, the district attorney, that she was still too traumatized to talk about the case on April 11.

Mr. Olatoye said the woman, 28, had worked at the club since the end of 2005, was reliable and left work early on weeknights for classes at North Carolina Central University. “The lady has to work,” he said. “We shouldn’t judge her for her work.”
