This is why the death penalty should be broadly used.

Yea, because generally when people are murdered they usually die with comfort and consolation from those closest to them.

Clearly inappropriate statement in a press address expressing sympathy with the family and advising the students of counseling services.

Dude went to school w/at least one of the Duke Lacrosse players who was accused of sexual assault. That doesn't bode well for the sport, or a certain breed of dude. What is it with Lacrosse players?

Absolutely awful thing to happen, though. Just really sad and unnecessary.

Yeah, however sad you were at that news, that sadness increased tenfold upon reading and thinking about that. What a bleak and jarring statement.

accused being the operative word here.

If you want to talk about Landon lax, then at least talk about something valid, http://www.e-lacrosse.com/2002/spin/10.html

This is pretty much as uncalled for as it gets. This poor girl's body isn't even cold yet; keep it to yourselves guys.

And that's why I don't have any friends in law school; no one thinks dead body jokes are funny.

I have always respected you a great deal for your contributions on this site, but you lost it with this incredibly callous comment.

Details of the crime are being pretty well protected. Apparently the kids lawyer is trying to paint a picture of this as a "tragic accidental death". Good luck with that one.

I cant even imagine what your response would be if someone made a blanket statement like that about a different group of athletes and "breed of dude"

playing a certain game = has nothing to do with what happened

Agreed. We've had 2 pretty serious allegations against lacrosse players in the last few years, and one of them was an unsubstantiated witch hunt with no conviction. How does that compare with the hundreds of DUIs, gun incidents, rapes, and nightclub fights in basketball and football? I don't see you making any blanket statements about football or basketball players based on the behavior of people like Ben Roethelisburger, Gilbert Arenas, Plaxico Burress, Pacman Jones, etc. etc.

I don't think this incident says anything about lacrosse players as a whole.

Well, guys that play intramural volleyball are kind of sketchy, but I basically agree with you.

Sorry. I am unrepentantly incredibly callous, but that might have been a tad too disrespectful. I don't mean to project on to the victim in this paticular case, but I have a passionate hatred of the "dead white lady" news staple, and some times it leaks out in inappropriate ways.

Why are we talking about this UVA student rather than this case? Why is it a horrible tragedy when a rich white girl dies, but just another day when a brown lady in Flatbush gets killed?

When Nancy Grace starts crying on TV about Black and Brown people getting murdered in Baltimore, I'll start to give a fuck about college students getting murdered; deal?

Because people in NYC get killed much more frequently than a student murdering another student at UVA

In fairness to your post, you are correct that his playing lacrosse has nothing to do with what he did to this girl. That said, when I read "breed of dude", I could only assume he meant "rich, entitled little twat who thinks it's okay to hit women."

(Not to say that poor kids who play basketball or baseball or something can't be guilty of the same cry and equally worthy of ire.)
