Over the last two weeks a really stupid story
has been unraveling at WSU, and the Spokane media have been going along
with the stupidity instead of looking at facts. On Aug 19 a female "reported" being attacked by a vaguely described male. Then on Aug 24 another female "reported" a similar attack. Also on Aug 24, a third "report".
That's how the media treated it... until the first accuser recanted. At that point, by simple logic, any thinking human would know that the second report was also false.
Nope, the media continued to treat #2 and #3 as gospel truth, as usual leaving off the "alleged" that sticks like glue to real reports of real crimes. Finally the WSU police revealed that report #3 was made by the same female who lied the first time. At that point even morons could see that the second report must be false. Nope, the media were still treating it as gold, warning young women to watch out for this evil stalker. Worst of all, the WSU President was making a big show of activating the Wymyn's Anti-Male Guard Center or whatever it's called, and offered a $5000 reward from his own pocket.
Yesterday the WSU cops finally let us "know" what we already knew with perfect certainty by logic: the second accuser was also lying. (Not the same female as #1 and #3.)
It appears that (as usual) the two female criminals will not be charged with anything, and (as usual) their names will be secret, thus encouraging other criminals to waste police time and obstruct justice.
Responsible newspapers and media would now be trying to find out the names of these two criminals, and would broadcast the names loudly and repeatedly so that other law enforcement agencies and innocent young men could avoid their evil clutches. Of course this won't happen.
Most of this mess is drearily predictable, but the involvement of WSU Pres Floyd is mildly puzzling. At the time when he called out the Harridan and Harpy Squad, the WSU cops must have been highly suspicious about the truth of the reports. If they didn't tell him that the reports looked like lies, they were letting their boss look like a fool, which is a sort of passive-aggressive insubordination. If they did tell him, then he's simply a fool.
