Duke Lacrosse Accuser Sets Boyfriend's Clothes On Fire

And I mean literally[*]:

Durham police arrested Duke lacrosse accuser Crystal Gale Mangum, 33, late Wednesday after she allegedly assaulted her boyfriend, set his clothes on fire in a bathtub and threatened to stab him....

Mangum is the author of the memoir "Last Dance for Grace." She was a student at North Carolina Central University in 2006 and also worked as an exotic dancer when she performed at the now infamous Duke lacrosse party.

It was there, she claimed, that three white members of the team trapped her inside a bathroom and raped and sexually assaulted her.

David Evans, Collin Finnerty and Reade Seligmann were indicted on rape and other charges on the basis of her allegations and were eventually exonerated after North Carolina's attorney general dismissed the case, citing a lack of evidence.

How could she have not have been jailed earlier considering her false criminal accusations and questionable past?

Must have been that "white privilege," just like Amy Bishop:

Make no mistake, this is an emotionally disturbed individual who should have been IN JAIL long ago....

Sometimes, you don’t want to bring race into things, but sometimes, like I said, it just slaps you in the face....

[*A commenter points out the boyfriend's clothes were set on fire, not the boyfriend. Correction noted, and post title corrected.]

  1. Your headline says that she set her boyfriend on fire. And then you say you meant that literally. But the story doesn't say that. It says she set his clothes on fire in a bathtub, and there is no indication he was wearing them at the time.

  2. Checked what Rodney King was up to recently?
