Police Find No Evidence of Rape at University of Virginia Fraternity

The police here said Monday that they had found no evidence that a woman was gang raped at a University of Virginia fraternity house in 2012,

and they were suspending their investigation, after a lengthy inquiry in which the alleged victim refused to cooperate. But they said the inquiry was not closed…
Do rapes happen?  Yes.  Are they monstrously repugnant?  Always.
So, what has happened in the land of journalism where a huge story published in Rolling Stone turns out to be totally bogus?

Rape is such an inhuman crime that charging rape without cause is especially reprehensible.

Why?

Because it undermines legitimate claims made by victims who deserve full recourse through the law.

In point of apparent fact, UVA was raped…

Who pays for that injustice?  Who repairs the reputations and relationships of those accused?

How is it that the Fourth Estate has run so amuck?

Justice Department Clears Officer of Civil Rights Violations in Ferguson Shooting

The Justice Department has cleared a Ferguson, Mo., police officer of civil rights violations in the shooting of Michael Brown, a black teenager whose death set off racially charged and sometimes violent protests last year.

Really?  The Justice Department cleared the police officer just like the Grand Jury did?

What about those who fomented the rioting based on “race”?

Were they cleared as well?
