No Charges Against Doughty

from the LA Times,

Citing insufficient evidence, Los Angeles County prosecutors declined to file sexual assault charges Wednesday against L.A. Kings player Drew Doughty, who was investigated by Hermosa Beach police in connection with a sexual assault allegation.

The allegations date to March 1, when a 25-year-old woman met Doughty at a bar near the Hermosa Beach Pier. She turned down a proposition from Doughty in front of several teammates, police said.

They took a cab to her home, where she accused Doughty of raping her. The woman reported the incident to police the same day. According the filing declination, the woman told police the two had consensual sex a few months prior to the incident.

She said that during the second incident, Doughty never threatened her, but that he had “intercourse with her against her will.”

I’m not one of those “she was asking for it” types who chooses to blame the victim, however, after turning him down why the hell was he in a cab with her and heading to her place?  Doesn’t excuse what Doughty allegedly did, if he in fact did it, but she probably could have been a little smarter about the situation.

Not surprised. These girls in Hermosa Beach tend to do things like this….

I don’t know what doughty did, but let’s speak generally here. 

Never blame the woman for “putting herself in a situation” instead try blaming the guy for RAPING HER

What is the matter with you?

We’re in a society where people are guilty until proven innocent.

I know the girl personally and she has a reputation of sleeping around. Not to mention they’d had consensual sex before. Also the police asked her to call Drew to try and get him to incriminate himself and she declined. Plus the police asked her what type of punishment does she feel he deserves and her answer was “I don’t want him to win the Stanley Cup.” really?
