Danmell Ndonye, a college girl at Hofstra University invited a few guys to have sex with her, at the same time. Then she was ashamed for what she did and reported them as rapists. The guys were arrested, their photos and names went on national TV, newspapers, internet. One woman’s lie trumped 4 guys’ coherent story.
Their bail was set at $500,000 bond or $350,000 cash, effectively insuring they wouldn’t be freed until law enforcement said they would be falserapesociety.blogspot.com/p/lamb-to-slaughter-hofstra-false-rape.html
One guy had videotaped the event that showed the girl enjoyed it. So they finally got out of jail. No charges were pressed against the false accuser, in spite of overwhelming proof and confession that Danmell Ndonye lied.
We have handed our young women the keys to the jailhouse cell and have given them the power to destroy the lives of our young men by crying “rape.” But because rape has become so terribly gender-politicized, there is no consensus about what to do when our young women abuse that power. Many refuse to believe that the abuse of that power is common. Many refuse to believe that the abuse of that power should be a crime
Rape accusers are readily believed, no matter how far-fetched their tales. This is completely opposite the standard rape industry mantra, but it is true. The mere allegation of “rape” is enough to brand the man or boy accused as a vile sex predator, no matter how implausible the accusation. Hofstra is just one of many examples of this.
All well intended laws get abused: the false rape epidemic
All well intended human laws are soon abused by opportunists. Tenant protection law gets abused by squatters, welfare laws by lazy “professional welfare recipients”. And rape prevention laws get abused by “sorry after the sex” criminally lying females.
Before feminists took over and Rape Laws dismantled due process, there probably were not too many false rape accusations. Well, except where women wanted to convince lynch mobs that applied only a litte more due process then today’s justice system.
But here, with feminists causes, things go overboard, way more then with other laws, due to Female evolutionary Superiority in social manipulation that causes feminist Language Distortions’ universal acceptance , like shown in When a “Rape” is not a Rape! The Abuse of the word “Rape”. & the Perversion of Language.
There must be a special evolutionary skill how feminists manage to convince male law makers to support their warped feminist “women studies” logic (Feminist arguments against prostitution debunked). Even the press is brainwashed, dissenters get banned: Change.org sucks: “womens rights” feminists censor & silence dissent, and Scientific Publications Condemned and Repressed by US Congress and Senate
It is very unusual that a guy videotapes his sex acts. Actually it is in bad taste, to videotape sex without the consent of the girl. But here it saved his .ss, literally. It showed a porn movie with Danmell Ndonye a willing participant enjoying the sex. Normally such tapes are the nail in the coffin, if the girl or any guy were underage, it would get them all in jail. Wasn’t he lucky nobody disappeared with this evidence?
Hundreds of innocent men in jail for false rape accusations
Statistically, for one such case where filming proved the lie, there are probably 20 cases where the girl looks incoherent enough (like here where the rope could not be found, etc), and the guys get off, after a few months in jail. And another 80 cases where the guy simply has no proof and he goes to jail for 20 years.
So there are probably 100 guys rotting in jail for each such high profile proven false rape case. They just could not prove their accuser wrong. And the rape accuser needs no proof to get a man into jail.
Constitutional Rights of due process were voided in feminist witch hunts
Our forefathers had reasons to enshrine rules of due process in our constitutions. Sadly these rules make it difficult to convict mobsters, bullies, and other well known criminals. So feminists managed to create exceptions for cases in their interest (rape, domestic violence, underage porn, child support, paternity tests, …).
Guilty until proven innocent. Jail first, investigate later. Free only if innocent beyond reasonable doubt.
It is beyond me how feminists managed to anull constiturional rights and invert due process in their witch hunt. A witch has to prove that she did not cause the hail storm. And an accused rapist has to prove he did not rape a his girl friend of 15 years, or a girl he never met, or a girl that made out with him in public and willingly walked up into his apartment
It is beyond my understanding, why constitutional courts don’t throw out these laws and these conviction. So big is the power of feminism..
Accused declared guilty by press reports
Journalists at the New York Post became little more than stenographers for police. The headline for one of its stories on the alleged rape read as follows: “Nightmare gang rape at Hofstra.” The first two sentences left little doubt for readers that a rape certainly occurred: “An 18-year-old Hofstra University co-ed was gang-raped by five men on campus, cops said last night. The shocking attack took place Sunday at around 3 a.m.”
Of course, if in the judicial system an alleged rapist is “guilty until proven innocent beyond reasonable doubt” it is only fair that the press feels entitled to convict in advance, too.
the news media chose to present a naked allegation as a scary rape, and to brand four young minority males as vicious rapists.
Impunity for rape accusers, even proven liars like Danmell Ndonye
In spite of PROOF of false police report, almost ruining 4 men’s lives, nothing happened to the lying girl Danmell Ndonye. NOTHING. Not one day in jail. Actually, a little bit of community service. So the message is: there is total impunity, you can accuse any guy of rape. Just plan it a little better, make sure they connot prove the contrary. If she had said the rape happened 6 months ago, and in reality she never had sex, there could be no tape proving the contrary. Well, except surveillance cameras that occasionally help discover lies.
But a crime did happen, Ms. Rice. Ms.Ndonye made a false police report that could have destroyed the lives of five innocent young men. It is a telling barometer of our “rape culture” that a district attorney can’t spot a false rape claim even when it bangs her over the head.
Even after the recantation, at first, the Nassau District Attorney’s office refused to release Ndonye’s name. The district attorney said: “Her actions and her demeanor depict a very troubled young woman in need of much help.” Even a criminal who was shown to have lied about rape, and whose rape lie nearly destroyed five innocent lives, was wrapped in the armor of anonymity.
Prosecutors justified Ndonye’s anonymity by noting that they feared for her safety.
Never mind the safety of the innocent men whose photographs were splashed all over New York’s daily papers and whose lives were allowed to be put in harm’s way for the sake of a few cheap journalistic thrills. Never mind the safety of the innocent man who said he was harassed even by employees of the jail who were supposed to keep him safe. The blatant double standard at work here was lost on the prosecutors.
Feminist dominated & politically correct Universities aren’t really concerned about female false accusars. A slap on the wrist is the maximum that can happen.
But Hofstra’s official reaction was different. Did Hofstra issue a statement similar to the one it issued when it assumed a vicious rape had been committed on campus? Such a statement should have read like this: “We are saddened and deeply distressed by these allegations of horrific crimes perpetrated against a member of our community and his guests. Lying about rape and sexual assault are not tolerated on our campus.”
Large percentage of rape reports are false
“Although it may not be ‘politically correct’ to question the veracity of a women’s complaint of rape, failing to consider the accuser may be intentionally lying effectively eradicates the presumption of innocence.” Dr. Bruce Gross, False Rape Allegations: An Assault on Justice, Annals of the American Psychotherapy Association, Dec. 22, 2008.
As reported by “False Rape Allegations” by Eugene Kanin, Archives of Sexual Behavior Feb 1994 v23 n1 p81 (12), Professor Kanin’s major study of a mid-size Midwestern U.S. city over the course of nine years found that 41 percent of all rape claims were false. Kanin also studied the police records of two unnamed large state universities, and found that in three years, 50 percent of the 64 rapes reported to campus police were determined to be false, without the use of polygraphs. (Kanin, incidentally, was a feminist icon whose work was cited and relied on without question by feminists, including the Koss Report. He suddenly became a nitwit who forgot how to do research when his studies upset the victim metanarrative of the persons who dominate the public discourse about rape.)
In addition, a landmark Air Force study in 1985 studied 556 rape allegations and found that 27% of the accusers recanted. An independent evaluation revealed a false accusation rate of 60%. McDowell, Charles P., Ph.D. “False Allegations.” Forensic Science Digest, (publication of the U.S. Air Force Office of Special Investigations), Vol. 11, No. 4 (December 1985), p. 64. See also, “Until Proven Innocent,” the widely praised (praised even by the New York Times, which the book skewers) and painstaking study of the Duke Lacrosse non-rape case. Authors Stuart Taylor and Professor KC Johnson explain that the exact number of false claims is elusive but “[t]he standard assertion by feminists that only 2 percent” or sexual assault claims “are false, which traces to Susan Brownmiller’s 1975 book ‘Against Our Will,’ is without empirical foundation and belied by a wealth of empirical data. These data suggest that at least 9 percent and probably closer to half” of all sexual assault claims “are false . . . .” (Page 374.)
Nobody cares about rampant prison rape with male victims
Just as a side line: a large percentage of prisoners get raped while in prison. Even though government, who locked them together with predators, is responsible. And nobody mentions the even larger number of those who become sex slaves in order to escape rape. Nobody cares. No inversion of due process to protect male rape victims in prison. No feminist cares about brutal gang rapes, repeated over years. Victims are in the power of their rapists for years and decades, like the victim in Mr. Fritzl’s cellar dungeon. And nobody really cares. Actually, prison rape is frequently applauded as just punishment (Stop Prison Rape! Legalize Corporal Punishment (Whipping))
