    NY - Charges dropped against five brooklyn teens accused of gang raping woman

    I'm at a complete lost for words..

    A Brooklyn-area park, New York City, New York -

    An 18-year-old woman made headlines last month after she claimed she was gang-raped by 5 teenage boys in a Brooklyn-area park with out with her dad.

    The alleged assault sparked outrage in the community and across the nation. Well, according to new information it appears as though the woman wasn’t telling the truth — at all.

    Prosecutors have DROPPED the rape charges against the five Brooklyn teenagers that were accused of raping the woman at gunpoint. The woman recanted her story about being sexually assaulted, she admitted to investigators there was NO gun, and it’s been revealed she was actually in the playground having sex with her father.

    via NY Daily News:

    “The complainant, as well as her father, provided multiple inconsistent accounts to NYPD Detectives and to experienced Special Victims prosecutors about important material facts in this case,” Thompson said in a statement.

    “The complainant has recanted her allegations of forcible sexual assault and the existence of a gun, and she does not wish to pursue criminal charges against any of the defendants. She also refuses to cooperate with any prosecution against her father, who was engaging in sexual conduct with her.”

    The alleged attack outraged community leaders after police shared news of the Jan. 9 incident.

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    "When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

    "But the teen suspects claimed the father was having sexual intercourse with the daughter when they first spotted the two, and two defendants told police the sex they had with the teen was consensual, sources told the Daily News at the time."

    I wish I could say I was surprised. But I cannot. My hinky meter was off the charts as soon as I read the initial news coverage of this.
