Just a thought. As I’ve already mentioned it’s pretty easy to identify the group that those alleged gang rapists came from. The allegation is that 7 pledges to that fraternity conducted a gang rape as part of their initiation. Hmm.
The group of pledges to that fraternity is unlikely to be more than 30 people in that year (the fraternity has some 80 places, college tends to be four years, 20 in a year, not all pledges get accepted, these numbers are not correct but they are indicative).
Rolling Stone has thus just accused 7 of those 30 odd people of gang rape. If it did happen then that’s very serious and those 7 should be in jail. If it didn’t happen then that’s a distinctly libelous accusation.
Those 30 (odd) should thus sue Rolling Stone for libel. At which point we’ll find out a great deal more about what did actually happen.
So, what’s the flaw with this plan? Is there one?
