Turns Out The UVA Rape Story Was as True as Hands Up Don’t Shoot

March 23, 2015

As in, not true at all and completely false. It’s almost like the left is trying to convince everyone that America is a racist, sexist country and will fabricate stories to do it. Almost.

Police Find No Evidence of Rape at UVA Fraternity

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — 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 that they were suspending their investigation, after a lengthy inquiry in which the accuser refused to cooperate. But they said the inquiry was not closed.

“I can’t prove that something didn’t happen, and there may come a point in time in which this survivor, or this complaining party or someone else, may come forward with some information that might help us move this investigation further,” Police Chief Timothy Longo told a roomful of reporters here.

“That doesn’t mean that something terrible did not happen to Jackie on the evening of Sept. 28, 2012,” Chief Longo said, referring to the accuser and adding that his department was simply unable to corroborate her account. He added, “This case is not closed by any stretch of the imagination.”

The announcement came four months after a now-discredited report of the sexual assault was published in Rolling Stone, roiling the historic university — and the world of journalism. But it was not entirely unexpected; university officials said in January that the police had informed them there was no “substantive basis to confirm the allegations.”

But Monday’s news conference did little to clear up the sense of confusion that has surrounded the Rolling Stone article, “A Rape on Campus,” which detailed what appeared to be a brutal gang rape of a student, identified only as Jackie, in an upstairs room of the Phi Kappa Psi house in 2012, followed by a botched response by the school’s administration.

Asked why he did not officially clear the fraternity and its members of wrongdoing, Chief Longo replied, “I think I just did.”
