But here’s the thing. It should actually be pretty easy to investigate: if you’ve the power to question witnesses of course.
The claim is that 7 frat pledges gang raped a girl. an appalling crime if it happened.
A frat pledge is someone in the process of joining a fraternity on a US college campus. We know which fraternity this is all alleged about.

Do you get my point yet?
If there’s 80 members then that’s roughly 20 each year. The allegation is that near half of one years’ entrants took part in a gang rape. Know which year and you’ll be looking for 7 in a group of 20 odd.
Any even half way competent cop would be able to, if the event had occurred, get the truth with those sorts of numbers. That Prisoners’ Dilemma thing really does work.
Sorry, I really just don’t believe the story. If it’s true then yes, many should be serving very long jail sentences. But there’s a lot resting on that “if”.
