The Latest On The Patrick Kane Case

from the Buffalo News,

At a news conference held in his office Friday morning, Erie County District Attorney Frank A. Sedita III addressed allegations of evidence tampering in the Patrick Kane rape investigation.

Sedita said the forensic evidence in the case was not compromised or tampered with, including the brown paper bag that was allegedly left at the home of the accuser’s mother.

“The rape kit was never in any kind of bag, Sedita said, “and it has never left the custody of ... the laboratory since.”...

edita said it was time to break his silence, stating that “the issue here is the integrity of the criminal justice system and the public’s confidence in the criminal justice system.”

“This office is not responsible for this circus,” he said.

When asked by a reporter when he thinks this case would go to the grand jury, Sedita responded: “The question in my mind is not when this case will go to a grand jury but if this case will go to a grand jury.”

And there you have it, just like that Kane will not possibly face any legal charges after this, regardless of what the truth really was.  It’s just too difficult now unless they have overwhelming DNA evidence they’ve been holding back.

There is no real case left now.  Either the mother knows the case is a sham and gambled on a circus (and already lost).... or she’s the worst mother in the world and just cost her daughter any hope whatsoever for justice.

It’s kinda’ hard now to not just think it the former though.

Sounds like a false dichotomy.  We don’t know the mother’s motivation: maybe she hates here daughter; maybe she likes attention.  But that should not be the determining factor in deciding if the case is relevant.  What’s in the rape kit, which has not been tampered with, likely is what really will drive this thing.

That’s not necessarily true. While he did say that this hoax could play a role in whether or not this case gets brought before a grand jury, it may not. Today he only spoke of the evidence tampering investigation, not the overall Kane investigation. Only time will tell what will happen.

The main takeaway is that the mom is f**king moron. Anything else is speculation. But that isn’t. She’s a moron.

If they had anything in the rape kit, they would have moved on it already.

I was disheartened to hear him say this tampering reduces the possibility of this going to a grand jury - at least that’s what I thought I heard him say.

If he raped her, he raped her.  End of story.  This bag thing doesn’t change what he did or did not do to her.

I was also a little put off by the DA’s smugness.  I just didn’t care for his attitude.

This may be chipping away at mistercrisco’s narrative. I’m excited to see his future mindless rants.
