    Zoey0815, you do make great points. Now what is your argument if in fact she wasn't raped? Again, if she was, they should bury the guy. If not, the editor.

    This is the first time I've ever seen such heated discussion over the release of the identity of a person charged with committing a violent crime. Why don't people complain about releasing the names of those accused of murder or robbery? Do we know beyond a reasonable doubt that they are guilty as soon as their story is released by the news media?
    Unfortunately, most men have no idea what it is like to be restrained by someone and forced to perform sexual acts. They have no idea of how frightening, painful, and degrading it is. They have never had to realize that there is nothing you can do to stop what is about to happen because he is so much stronger than you, so if you want to live, you had better cooperate. I think that if men experienced something like that, they would not be so hasty to defend this alleged attempted rapist. Maybe they would quietly let the story play out and instead feel sorry for the poor woman who went through the ordeal.

    Shame on WRAL for putting this man's name out here without concrete evidence. He's guilty until proven innocent, and kudos to the blog writers for filling up space. If he did it, I hope he gets what he deserves. If he didn't I hope you(meaning the editors) apologize on here to him.

    ++++I have to wonder at all the passion I see here. Let the investigators and District Attorney sort it out.

    REALLY?????????????????????????????????????????

    I can tell you have NOT BEEN INVOLVED in any kind of "issue" recently.....interesting though...you just MIGHT CHANGE your mind...IF AND WHEN THIS HAPPENS....

    ++++An accusation is enough to land someone in jail without evidence. Then it's guilty until proven innocent....especially with sex crimes. No due process.

    YOU SAID IT CORRECT....there does NOT HAVE TO BE ONE OUNCE OF EVIDENCE....to get an INDICTMENT....as all of them are just RUBBER STAMPED...so a person, anyone, can "accuse another person of anything at all"....and start the BALL ROLLING...and this, my friends, is how a lot of "INNOCENT PEOPLE ARE SENT TO PRISON FOR CRIMES THAT DID NOT HAPPEN"....NO EVIDENCE....there is SOMETHING REALLY SO VERY WRONG WITH SUCH AS THIS GOING ON...and so much TIME AND EFFORT as well as $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
    being spent......and we, the taxpayer, are paying for all of this....

    I have to wonder at all the passion I see here. Let the investigators and District Attorney sort it out. I would think anytime two people are in the same proximity one can accuse the other of attempted anything, but there has to be something that ties it all together.

    I think that our "laws" are so vague and gray....that there is a fine line concerning a lot of them....and as we all know...with the "new generation" of "morals, standards and values" that people now have...shacking up with people...hooking up with friends...I have to "wonder" just how many "crimes" are really "committed" or just accused of people who are having some sort of other issues....IF there is EVIDENCE....then it should NOT be a doubt....BUT IF it is he said/she said....kind of thing....then perhaps someone else needs to take a second look....I do know that some magnistrates refuse to approve warrants...and then the "law enforcement officers" will go to another "magistrate for the same charge" and get it approved...SO WHAT IS GOING ON WITH THIS kind of "LAW"...is it WHO YOU KNOW...that is important....instead of what is LEGAL AND LAWFUL? Well...one has to wonder....SOMETHING IS ROTTEN IN DENMARK about all of this going on....
