DURHAM -- State Attorney General Roy Cooper "wrote off a whole section of Durham" last week when he declared three former Duke University lacrosse players "innocent" of accusations they sexually assaulted and kidnapped a woman, community activist Theresa El-Amin told a group of about 15 supporters of their discredited accuser Monday.

At a meeting at The Know Bookstore And Cultural Center at 2520 Fayetteville St., El-Amin and fellow activists Victoria Peterson and Lavonia Allison aired their opposition to Cooper's vindication of the former Duke players.

Peterson, an ardent supporter of the exonerated players' accuser, said Cooper circumvented the justice system when he declared the former defendants innocent on all counts.

"I don't really care what you think, if you think that the girl was lying or telling the truth, but what happened to the judicial system we have in this country where the jury is the only one who can say if someone is innocent?" Peterson said. "If he thought there wasn't enough evidence, he could dismiss the charges, but this man [Cooper] took it a step further, he said 'We believe these three are innocent.' "

"People on death row get exonerated [all the time] and did you ever hear an attorney general come out and say [the exonerated individual] is innocent? It's a scandal," El-Amin said.

Community member Beverly Jenkins said the fact that the accuser had not been charged with making false accusations proves Cooper has something to hide.

Activist Dannette Sharpley, who is working with El-Amin to plan an April 28 march against sexual violence, said the charges were dismissed because society undervalues women of color and women who work as exotic dancers and strippers.

"To them, this woman was unrape-able. [To them] she asked for it. [To them] she doesn't dignify the process. That's why they're 'innocent,' " Sharpley said.

Peterson said she felt the African American community in Durham failed to rally around the accuser because the woman was employed as a stripper.

El-Amin, who said she wanted to get Durham's black churches to offer the accuser financial support, got about five people to agree to help her provide the accuser with food and rent money. She added that she was not in contact with the victim but hoped she would be soon.

What a fucking joke.  Do these blacks realize what kind of danger a rogue prosecutor is to the black community?

They didn't charge her with a crime because she is mentally unstable, and wasn't able to discern the fiction inside her psychosis from reality.

I guess these fools didn't watch that part of the AG's interview later in the day though. Where all of this was reasonably explained.

How is having the State show sympathy to a woman in serious need of mental health intervention, a cover-up to protect men that have already been cleared of any crime?

The freakin' Woman had "Genetic material" (Sperm) from 5 different dudes in Her when she was examined NONE of which came from the 3 Duke players charged a YEAR ago with raping Her (Who, according to Her climaxed inside Her WITHOUT wearing condoms)........

What's the activists problem again?

Among other problems, she knows bugger all about the judicial system.

For one, juries don't find people innocent in this country they find people guilty, or not-guilty.

The DA is well within his authority to drop charges against anyone.  He also can also express an opinion of their innocence, if he so chooses.  It is uncommon, but there is nothing wrong with it.  No one is shocked when a DA expresses an opinion that someone is guilty.

The majority of the black Americans desperately need national role models that can inspire self confidence, self reliance, and hope in their future not only as a race, but as individuals as well.  

Look at the role models of a significant portion of black America.  
They've got:

1.  The Rhymin' Reverands
2.  Gangsta Rappers
3.  Prima Donna athletes.

Quite a list to be proud of.  Respect won't be found following this group of "leaders".

Boy, that twat sure has a deep knowledge of the law.

Everyone IS innocent, up until they are PROVEN guilty. But I guess that doesn't fit with their vision of mob rule.

Damn, is she a burn patient?  Talk about thin skin.  If anything comes out of the Imus scandel, she still has her FUTURE.  What did she lose?  One night at the governor's mansion AS A GUEST?  

Show me the damages.  If anything, the team has a coat of Teflon at the least.  And they are that much more visible to the WNBA.

Fuck em.  The kids won and who cares what all the dykes and race baiters think.  A declaration of their innocence was the only way for these kids to begin their lives with a bit of that black cloud (no pun intended) removed from above them.

Prosecutors often label defendants "guilty" before a jury reaches a verdict.  So why can't he label these kids innocent?

I'm glad they didn't do it, both rape or consensual.

If one of them were my son, I would kick his ass from here to kingdom come if he raped anyone.
I would kick his ass almost as hard if I found out he screwed a nasty ho like that girl, especially if he was like these guys, who are probably covered up with beautiful, super hot chicks.
I hoped none of them were that desperate.

The poor accuser was nothing but a team player. I mean the WHOLE team playa with that much "genetic" material in her.

I think she knows the truth, she can't admit it tho because she would be liable for a lawsuit. Not like she has anything including her virginity to lose.
