Duke Lacrosse story

The Duke Lacrosse story is blowing up. All 46 DNA tests came back negative.

There were holes in the stripper-accuser's story from the start. Since she was only accusing 3 players, she should have had to pick them out of a police lineup.

The main piece of evidence is now her broken fake fingernails that were found at the scene. That is not enough for a rape conviction.

I think that the press should have waited for the DNA tests, since the police said that they would be dispositive. Now they have branded all the boys as being guilty, and the accuser hasn't even been named. At this point, either the charges should be dropped or the accuser should be named. I'll post her name here if I find out.
