Jessica Joe of Oakland University thought it a grand idea to accuse two strangers of rape to get attention and support from her boyfriend.
According to police reports, Joe claimed that on April 24, as she was walking out of the CVS Pharmacy at Adams and Walton, she was grabbed by two men and dragged into a van parked next to her car. She told police that the men pulled her clothing off and one man drove around, while the other man raped her and was eventually pushed out of the van in the lot, according to the sheriff’s office. Although she claimed she struggled and fought to get away, police could find neither marks or bruises on her body.
A check with the store’s entrance videotape showed that Joe was never entered or left the store. Furthermore, CVS employees declared no one fitting her description had been in the store.
It is now clear that Joe will face felony charges. Whether she is convicted will depend on the strength of her P-Pass.
But what truly infuriates me is Sheriff Michael Bouchard himself. when he bleats out the tired old axiom: "When someone falsely claims a kidnapping and sexual assault it makes it that much harder on real assault victims and wastes precious police resources.' As several commentators over at FRS have stated, what about the men whose lives will be ruined by her petty whims, especially if her descriptions matched an actual, innocent man? At least she was named and we have a photo of her, while the men were not.
That is why anonymity is now paramount in a society where political correctness has run amok. So run over to the site and sign this Petition Supporting Anonymity NOW! And if you can, give them some money too. I did and its all for a good cause.
