No, THIS is some infuriating shit...

Where the bloody devil does a woman that was not raped get the gaul to write a book. Yes you read that correctly. Crystal Magnum has seen it fit to pen a memoir of her because apparently:

" Were it not for the Duke Lacrosse Case, she likely would be described as a bright, young woman from Durham, North Carolina, who has had a difficult life."

More like were it not for the Duke Lacrosse Case, she would likely have not had an opportunity to make some money.

Her life was peaching keen until she DECIDED to falsely accuse three guys of raping her right? She may very well be a bright young woman but above quote is worded as if none of that Lacrosse Case nonsense was her fault. SHE is the one that made the accusations. SHE is the one that let Nifong run with a bad case. SHE is the one that made her own life a living hell. Therefore she is NOT the victim in this case.

You know who the victims are? Those three kids who lives she ruined by dragging their names and reputations through the mud. The Duke Lacrosse team members that lost a year of eligibility. Sure the players that didn't graduate were granted an extra year but what about the ones that had the last year of eligibility taken from them and will never get it back because they graduated? And not to mention that other members of the team were accused of withholding information in an effort to protect their teammates. Or maybe Mike Pressler. Who is that you ask? He was the coach of the Lacrosse team at the time of the "rape" that was pressured into resigning after spending years the getting the team top condition. How about the resources that were wasted on her that could have gone to, oh I don't know, REAL victims?

But after its all said and done its all okay because she plans to donate $1 from each sold copy to help battered women. I'm sure actual victims of a crime (and thats not even touching the assumption that only women are battered) will feel just fine having their hurt, pain, and suffering used as a selling point for a book by someone who was not even a victim.

A shout to LorMarie and Glenn Sacks for talking about something that will probably get little to no mention in the feminist blogshpere (you know the ones that were ready to send three innocent guys to the chopping block but then went silent or blamed Nifong when her admission came out).

And after all of this I still fail to understand why this woman is not facing charges for what she did. And if there is any justice in this world she would be facing a real punishment as well, none of that $50 fine and 2 days in jail garbage.
