Charm School Dropout

The Duke lacrosse story gets stranger by the day. The boys' lawyer is now arguing that the following email from one of the players to his chums is proof that no rape occurred:

“After tonight’s show, i’ve decided to have some strippers over to edens 2c,” the writer of the e-mail wrote, noting, however, there would be no nudity. “i plan on killing the bitches as soon as the walk in and proceeding to cut their skin off while cumming in my duke issue spandex.”

Appalling? A little. But, you have to understand that the culture is so debased that these boys have very few cultural standards to laddishly transgress. Mutilation still has some outre quality.

But, yeah, I'm not really seeing how this is the defense's ace in the hole.

I might be off base but this seems to me like the lawyer assummed this was coming out so he decided to put it out himself and try to put his own spin on it. Obviously the authorities investigating the incident would be likely to get a warrant to seize their computers to look at their e-mail communications directly before and after the event.

Oh, absolutely! The email came out in the press and he's trying to make it sound good. What was funny about the story is that his line was that this email proves that his clients are absolutely innocent because the kid didn't mention a rape in the email. So, it was classic spin.
