Another DNA Exoneration?

No DNA match in the Duke lacrosse fiasco. Assuming the prosecutor follows through on his attempt to file charges sans DNA evidence, this isn’t over yet but all signs are pointing to the lacrosse team being exonerated. This has been a messy situation, one in which it seems guilt was assumed all along. This was poorly managed by Duke and the administration. 46 athletes have had their lives terribly disrupted and their reputations sullied.

I have no doubt that had this been the Duke basketball team or the Miami football team, this level of hysteria would never have been reached. It’s sad that the administration didn’t have the foresight and the courage to at least make a half-hearted stand for these student athletes.
