Charlottesville Police Chief Timothy J. Longo Says They Found No Evidence in UVA Sexual Assault Case Reported in Rolling Stone

CHIEF OF POLICE SAYS NO EVIDENCE TO SUPPORT SEXUAL ASSAULT AS REPORTED IN ROLLING STONE …

Police Chief Timothy J. Longo said in a press conference Monday afternoon that they have found no evidence to support claims in a Rolling Stone article that a University of Virginia student (Jackie) was gang raped at  Phi Kappa Psi fraternity house or any other fraternity house,  in September 2012,  after months of investigation. It is a sad state of journalistic integrity and malpractice that Rolling Stone tried to passed this story off as the truth and a sexual assault of a student turned out to be nothing more than a work of fiction.

“We’re not able to conclude to any substantive degree that an incident occurred at the Phi Kappa Psi fraternity house or any other fraternity house, for that matter,” Longo said at a news conference. “That doesn’t mean something terrible didn’t happen to Jackie … we’re just not able to gather sufficient facts to determine what that is.”

Police here say they have found no evidence to support claims in a Rolling Stone article that a University of Virginia student was gang raped at a campus fraternity in September 2012, noting that months of investigation led detectives to discredit several claims about the alleged assault.

Police Chief Timothy J. Longo on Monday afternoon said the police department had multiple meetings with “Jackie” — the woman who claimed she was gang raped at a fraternity party — and that she declined to speak about the alleged incident or provide any information about it. Numerous lines of inquiry yielded evidence that the fraternity did not have a party the night of the alleged attack, and police were unable to find anyone matching the description of the alleged attacker.

“We’re not able to conclude to any substantive degree that an incident occurred at the Phi Kappa Psi fraternity house or any other fraternity house, for that matter,” Longo said at a news conference. “That doesn’t mean something terrible didn’t happen to Jackie … we’re just not able to gather sufficient facts to determine what that is.”

Wesley Hadsell has been charged with four charges of obstructing justice, one charge of possessing ammunition after a felony and one charge of breaking and entering. The father’s arrest  comes on the same day police and search crews spent more than 12 hours combing through a heavily-wooded area along South Battlefield Boulevard in Chesapeake.

Wesley Hadsell has said that he had nothing to do with his daughter’s disappearance; however, he believes his daughter was abducted and stated that he broke into the home of the person he suspects took AJ to look for evidence in connection with the disappearance.

Anjelica “AJ” Hadsell Missing Since 3/2/15

Virginia police are searching Sunday for a university student missing since March 2, while the woman’s father says he was arrested on charges unrelated to his daughter’s disappearance after a lengthy interrogation.

Norfolk police haven’t ruled out foul play in the disappearance of Anjelica (AJ) Hadsell, 18, who vanished nearly three weeks ago while home on spring break from Longwood University, where she is a freshman.

Her father, Wesley Hadsell, told WAVY-TV Saturday that he was arrested after being questioned by police for more than 15 hours. He said he was charged with obstructing justice, possession of ammunition after a felony and breaking and entering.

“They asked me where she was at,” Hadsell, 36, told the station from the Norfolk County Jail. “I know, give them the answers. I can bring AJ home. Their words last night (Friday).”

WAVY – Missing teen’s father arrested on six charges:

“I couldn’t sit a minute away from where my daughter may have been,” Hadsell said from the Norfolk City Jail.

Hadsell admitted to breaking in and spending roughly 18 minutes inside the home. where he tore through trash cans and pealed back parts of the carpet. He said he even punched the family dog out of anger. He claimed to have discovered a clue upon searching through the resident’s furniture.

“I found my daughter’s jacket in his couch rolled up behind the cushion,” said Hadsell.”I was just trying to make the evidence come to light. It’s not like I had the jacket, I didn’t plant the jacket, I didn’t know anything about that. It was the fact of the overwhelming information that led me there.”

It was during a search of Hadsell’s hotel room where he said Norfolk police found 72 rounds of nine-millimeter ammunition. Hadsell doesn’t deny any of the charges or having a lengthy felony criminal record.

“(I) made mistakes,” he said. “I’ve been out of trouble for over 10 years, and I do have successful employment at a business and stuff like that and a good family.”

Hadsell calls himself a changed man, and calls the disappearance of his daughter “overwhelming.”

“I want my daughter home,” said Hadsell. “That’s what I want and that’s all I want. Anybody who wants to say something about that or get in the way of that, then I’m sorry. So what some ways are unorthodox. I didn’t have anything to do with her disappearance. I don’t know where she’s at.”

VICTORY FOR OLD GLORY … UC-Irvine Executive Cabinet VETOES Resolution Banning the American Flag from the Lobby of the Student Government Offices

COMMON SENSE FINALLY PREVAIL …

The University of California Irvine five member student executive cabinet has vetoed a resolution banning the American flag from the lobby of the student government offices. But this action on the part on UC-Irvine for anyone to even think of banning the American flag from anywhere on campus drew the attention of more than just the school. But this was just an example of a few liberal, America hating lunatics trying to overtake the process. From the reaction to their voting for the ban, it appeared that no one in the student body or the university administration for for this resolution.. In fact they were embarrassed.  Also, the State government in Sacramento, CA are looking to propose a Constitutional Amendment that prevents state universities from ever banning the American flag. How sad is it though, that we have so many ingrates in this country that such an Amendment would have to be contemplated.

Maybe the best comment in response to this attempted hijacking of the American flag by six radical was by one UCI student, “I think its fine that they want to keep it, I mean this school is in America and it is the American flag so I don’t see what the problem is”.

In vetoing the resolution, the ASUCI Executive Cabinet made the following statement:

We fundamentally disagree with the actions taken by ASUCI Legislative Council and their passage of R50-70 as counter to the ideals that allow us to operate as an autonomous student government organization with the freedoms of speech and expression associated with it. It is these very symbols that represent our constitutional rights that have allowed for our representative creation and our ability to openly debate all ranges of issues and pay tribute to how those liberties were attained.

As students in an academic institution we encourage all students on campus to participate in open debate about a wide array of issues and to actively engage in academic curiosity, which lies at the backbone of a preeminent academic research institution. It is this freedom to be able to navigate and explore topics on a wide range of issues that we see at risk if we begin to engage in a particular form of regulation of free speech and its expression through symbols in any space associated with our organization.

Matthew Guevara and the 5 other America haters who voted in favor of R50-70 might want to rethink what it means to be an American and live in America. The ASUCI Legislative Council’s resolution, passed six to four on Tuesday, with two abstentions, a resolution calling for the removal of all flags, especially the American flag, noting that it “has been flown in instances of colonialism and imperialism.” The clueless 6 might want to read the above statement from the student executive cabinet that soundly excoriated their ridiculous resolution.

University of California – Irvine Student Government Voted to Remove the American Flag from an “Inclusive Space” on Campus

HOW AND WHEN DID COLLEGE EDUCATED KIDS BECOME SO STUPID … AMERICA, YOU ARE ALLOWING THIS COUNTRY TO BE DESTROYED FROM WITHIN.

The University of California -Irvine student government voted this past week to exclude the American flag from the common lobby area of student government offices to promote cultural inclusion. WHAT? Are these people on drugs or is it just more liberal, mental disease? Here is liberal logic, to be more inclusive, you are being exclusive. BRILLIANT! The resolution, see below, that passed 6-4, also went on to say that “freedom of speech, in a space that aims to be as inclusive as possible, can be interpreted as hate speech.” Yet another head shaking moment from college idiot liberals who have no sense of what makes the United States of America and for which it stands, One Nation under God and the home of the free and the brave.

America Flag -Haters

A note to Matthew Guevara, add yourself to the list of other American flag haters

According to the Campus Reform, the bill, R50-70, was authored by Social Ecology Representative Matthew Guevara, and accuses all flags, especially, the American flag, of being “symbols of patriotism or weapons for nationalism.” Especially? Just another America hating hypocrite who hates the flag and what it represents, but who has no problem benefiting from the freedom and liberty provided by the American flag. Written by student Matthew Guevara of the School of Social Ecology, the resolution states.

“The American flag has been flown in instances of colonialism and imperialism” and notes that flags “construct paradigms of conformity and sets homogenized standards.”

The resolution goes on to say that “freedom of speech, in a space that aims to be as inclusive as possible, can be interpreted as hate speech.”

Maybe UC-Irvine, since they have no room for the American flag would also like to give up all the college funding that comes curtsey of the United States of America? As for ignoramus Matthew Guevara, who is against American exceptionalism and some how thinks the American flag represents colonialism, with all due respect go screw yourself. For Matthew Guevara and the rest of his ilk, maybe you would like to take a semester abroad at let’s say ISIS University and see just what it is like to live with no freedoms. If you make it back alive, maybe you will then understand what the American flag truly stands for.

UC Irvine student council bans U.S. flag from its lobby.

The executive cabinet of UCI’s Associated Students on Saturday will consider vetoing the flag prohibition, which prompted the American’s flag’s removal from a lobby wall.

“It’s an iconic and symbolic representation of our values in the U.S.,” said Reza Zomorrodian, the Associated Students’ president who sits on the executive cabinet and opposes the ban.

The student council approved the resolution with a 6-4 vote and two abstentions. Matthew Guevara, the representative who authored the resolution, did not return email messages Friday.

The resolution lists 25 reasons for the ban, mostly relating to how the flag can be interpreted and viewed negatively or positively depending on one’s experiences. The resolution states that the American flag has been flown in times of “colonialism and imperialism” and could symbolize American “exceptionalism and superiority.”

Under the resolution, no flags of any nation can be hung in the office.

Wright State University President Apoligizes for Black History Month Menu Featuring Fried Chicken & Collard Greens

AM I MISSING SOMETHING, IS THIS SUPPOSED TO BE A JOKE. POLITICAL CORRECTNESS REACHES A NEW STUPIDITY …  FRIED CHICKEN AND COLLARD GREENS ARE AUTHENTIC SOUL FOOD?

Wright State University president  David Hopkins and  its dining services vendor have apologized for creating a menu for Black History month that included fried chicken and collard greens. HUH? The menu consisted of fried chicken, collard greens, mashed potatoes and cornbread. Okay, I am still missing the problem, was it the fact that potatoes are not ethnic?  This is just another example that some people will complain about anything and will forever be a victim, no matter what. Supposedly, Billy Barabino, a senior organizational leadership major from New Jersey and president of the Black Student Union was offended saying the following, “I was really hurt (by the menu). Extremely hurt.” For me, it was a knock in the face for African (and) African- American individuals who have fought for us to be progressive. I was extremely offended by it because it minimizes who we are as people.” Dude, did anyone tell you that this type of food is your heritage? Isn’t that the point of Black History month, to honor the black heritage and culture in America?

A note to Billy Barabino and the rest of the victims, you do realize that fried chicken, hog maw, collard greens, ham hocks, black-eyed peas, okra, turnip greens, cornbread, Hoecake, Hoppin John, fatback and chitlins are all authentic African-American soul food, right? You might want to try some fried catfish, chicken and dumplings or Collar Greens with Ham Hocks. Instead of complaining about being offended, maybe you might want to try them, they are actually good. Amen to the folks over at The Last Tradition, PC Stupidity when Liberals at Wright State University feel Fried Chicken and Collard Greens is offensive cuisine for Black history month.

Black History Month menu

University Apologizes For Black History Month Dining Menu Featuring Fried Chicken, Collard Greens.

After a menu featuring fried chicken and collard greens under a photo of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and other African American leaders for Black History Month, the president of Wright State University in Ohio and its dining services vendor have apologized.

The Dayton Daily News reported that images were circulated on social media, calling it offensive and disrespectful.

President David Hopkins wrote in an email of the university’s commitment to diversity and pride at hosting the Phoenix Project and forum featuring daughters of several civil rights leaders. Hopkins said he would find out why a menu sign included chicken, mashed potatoes, collard greens and cornbread under a picture of Martin Luther King Jr. and other famous black figures, according to the Dayton Daily News.

“I apologize to anyone hurt by the display,” Hopkins wrote in an email. “To our credit, the menu was quickly removed. But the larger question remains: Why was it done? I will find out. We will take steps to prevent this kind of behavior occurring in the future.”

Chartwells Higher Education Dining Services released a statement that read, in part:

“Chartwells celebrates many national events on campus and tries to provide authentic and traditional cuisine to reflect each theme. In no way was the promotion associated with Black History Month meant to be insensitive. We could have done a better job putting this in context of a cultural dining experience. We sincerely apologize.”

I am still trying to figure out how this idiot Billy Barabino is extremely hurt and exactly what action do you plan to take? How exactly is having on a menu, that which is ethnic food that blacks have ate in the past and continue to do so offensive and not an effort in diversity? Seriously, does Billy not understand that is his history? Are you telling me that the many times that I have gone to friends houses that are black and we ate fried chicken, collard greens, black-eyed peas, black-eyed peas, fried okra, turnip greens and cornbread, we were being racist? Maybe some one should tell my black friends. I hate to break it to you Billy Barabino but no one of your ancestors in the United States were eating Kapenta with sadza and Namibian venison.

I guess Billy doesn’t get too much soul food in Jersey.

I can’t wait until the Irish complain that they are offended and extremely hurt on St. Patrick’s Day when when the food vender serve corned-beef and cabbage, boxty, and Shepherd’s Pie.

Or in March during Greek-American Heritage Month when the Greek students conduct boycotts and  “no justice, no peace” protests in the cafeteria when they serve Moussaka, Baklava, Tzatziki and Gyros.

And in May during Asian Pacific American History Month don’t even think about serving rice.

20 Year Old, University of Illinois Student Vicente Mundo Missing Since 1/25/15 in Champaign, IL (Update: Found Deceased)

20 year old Vicente Mundo has been missing since Sunday, January 25, 2015 in Champaign , Illinois. Vicente Mundo, a junior at the University of Illinois, was last seen on campus, near the corner of Third and Chalmers at about 7:15 pm. on January 25. His roommate told Mundo’s family that Vicente left their off-campus apartment to meet someone near his car around 6:45 pm Cell phone records show he made his last call around 7:12 pm Sunday.

Mundo lives in the 300 block of East Chalmers Street, Champaign. He is described as a Hispanic man with black hair and brown eyes, 6-feet-tall and weighing about 165 pounds. He drives a silver Acura TL with Illinois license plate number 2557BD.

Vicente Mundo

Missing: Vicente Mundo

Vicente Mundo is 6 feet tall and 140 pounds with black hair, brown eyes and of Hispanic descent. He was last seen wearing a navy down coat with a Blackhawks baseball hat.

Mundo was last seen 7:15 p.m. Sunday when he left an apartment on the U of I campus and went to his car — a 2006 silver Acura TL with a special edition Bears license plate 2557. Then, he never returned.

His sister tells WGN he went to meet someone there — another student maybe — but they don’t know why. Also missing is the college junior’s wallet, iPad, phone, and Acura. His sister says his grades are good and she isn’t aware of any problems in his life.

UPDATE I: University of Illinois police on Friday announced that his family is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to his return.

“We figure that money is a good incentive for anything, so we thought maybe that would make people want to tell us anything,” his sister said.

Mundo’s wallet and phone also are missing, along with his car, a 2006 Acura TL with a special edition Bears license plate No., 2557, according to campus police. Mundo’s sister said the car has tinted windows, black tires and black rims.

At 1 p.m. Tuesday, Mundo’s phone pinged a cellphone tower near Mahomet, Ill., a town of 7,700 people about 11 miles from Champaign. After that, his cellphone appears to have gone dead, his sister said. The family does not yet have information about which towers the phone may have pinged before Tuesday.

There has been no activity on Mundo’s bank account, according to his sister, which makes her suspect he did not disappear voluntarily.

“There’s no money withdrawn, there’s no stopping for coffee, there’s nothing; like he disappeared from the face of the earth,” she said. “If someone wants to go missing, that’s fine, but they’re going to withdraw money.”

Anyone with information should contact the University of Illinois Police Department at 217-333-1216 or the Champaign Police Department at 217-351-4545.

UPDATE I: Body of missing U. of I. student from Chicago found in central Illinois.

On Monday, authorities said the death of the U. of I. junior — one of two Hispanic men to go missing in Champaign in the last month — was ruled a homicide by the Champaign County coroner’s office.

His body was found about 9 a.m. Saturday along a rural road about 10 miles south of Champaign. The coroner’s office declined to comment on the autopsy or cause of death.

Vanderbilt University Rape Case: Cory Batey & Brandon Vandenburg Found Guilty of 16 Felonies, Including Aggravated Rape

TWO DOWN, TWO TO GO …

Former Vanderbilt University football players, 21 year old Brandon Vandenburg and 20 year old Cory Batey have been found guilty of 16 felonies, including several for aggravated rape in the sexual assault of a female student in a Vanderbilt dorm in June 2013. It took the jury just three hours to return guilty on all charges for both Batey and Vandenburg.  Both individuals were convicted of four counts of aggravated rape, one count of attempted aggravated rape and two counts of aggravated sexual battery.  The trial took 12 days, but the jury deliberations took just a little more than 3 hours. The jury had their minds made up when lawyers were giving closing arguments. Their sentencing is scheduled for March 6, 2015.

These two idiots have ruined their lives with their poor and deviant decisions. They had the opportunity to attend Vanderbilt University, one of the best colleges in America and pissed it all away. Actions have consequences.

Vanderbilt rape suspects2

Look how the two convicted rapists have been polished up by their attorneys for court

 Two former Vanderbilt football players were convicted on Tuesday of raping a fellow student in 2013 after a jury rejected claims that they were too drunk to know what they were doing and that a college culture of binge drinking and promiscuous sex should be blamed for the attack.

The jury deliberated for three hours before announcing its verdict against the two former players, Brandon Vandenburg and Cory Batey. Mr. Batey was stoic, staring ahead, and Mr. Vandenburg shook his head no, appearing stunned as the verdict was read. His father had an outburst and abruptly left the courtroom.

The victim, who was a 21-year-old neuroscience and economics major at the time of the attack, cried as each guilty verdict was announced.

Both men were convicted of four counts of aggravated rape, one count of attempted aggravated rape and two counts of aggravated sexual battery. They face decades in prison at their sentencing, scheduled for March 6.

 Vanderbilt rape suspects

Vanderbilt rape victim releases statement:

“Thank you to everyone who has supported me throughout this difficult process. I’m thankful that the criminal justice system will hold the defendants responsible for their violent crimes. The hard work of the law enforcement officers, prosecutors and victims’ advocates who dedicated so many months of their lives to this case has made justice possible.

I want to especially thank detective Jason Mayo, Sgt. Mike Shreeve, Detective Chad Gish, Deputy District Attorney Tom Thurman, Assistant District Attorneys Jan Norman and Roger Moore and victims’ advocates Wanda Swan, Lt. Rochelle Barrios and Teresa Shearon. You are my heroes and I am so proud of and grateful for each of you.

“I am also hopeful that the publicity this case has received will lead to a discussion of how we can end sexual violence on college campuses. Finally, I want to remind other victims of sexual violence: You are not alone. You are not to blame.”

Two other players, Jaborian McKenzie and Brandon Banks, were also accused in the rape. Both have pleaded not guilty and are awaiting trial.

Dartmouth College Cheating Scandal … 64 Students, Including Many Varsity Athletes, Charged with Honor Code Violations Following Widespread Cheating Allegations in a Sports Ethics Class

CAN YOU SAY IRONY … DARTMOUTH COLLEGE CHEATING SCANDAL IN SPORTS ETHICS CLASS.

You just cant make this stuff up … 64 students at Dartmouth College, including many varsity athletes, have been charged with “Honor Code” violations following a widespread cheating scandal. The course in question that is at the forefront of the cheating scandal, hold it … hold it …. hold it … Sports ethics. UM, REALLY? How bad is it when you have a cheating scandal in a course created at an Ivy League school intended to help student-athletes, who sometimes had trouble with the coursework at Dartmouth. In other words, the course was intended to inflate scholarship athletes grades point averages. Is is a kin to cheating at basket weaving 101. Maybe the professors will give the cheaters an “A” for effort in cheating ingenuity?

Kind of reminds me of the “business ethics” question from the movie ‘Billy Madison’.

dartmouth

 Dartmouth College has charged 64 students, many of them varsity athletes, with honor code violations following allegations of widespread cheating in a sports ethics class.

Department of Religion Chairman Randall Balmer, who in November accused some of his students of misrepresenting their class attendance, said that “with a few exceptions, most of the students were suspended for a term.”

The college’s head of judicial affairs, Leigh Remy, declined to comment, though spokeswoman Diana Lawrence confirmed the number of students facing possible sanctions.

Lawrence said that the college would not make detailed comments on the judicial proceedings until the appeals process ends in mid-January.

According to Balmer, in late October, students who failed to attend class passed off handheld devices known as “clickers” to classmates. Those students then used the gadgets to answer questions on the absent students’ behalf to make it appear as though they were present in class, Balmer said.

Though Balmer said that 43 students — less than the total number of students facing sanctions — handed off their clickers to their peers, some others confessed to him that they had helped their friends cheat.

The course in question was originally intended to help student-athletes, who sometimes had trouble with the coursework at Dartmouth, Balmer said. After a popular first run last year, the fall term’s class swelled to more than 280 students, and attendance and cheating became a problem.

Shane Montgomery’s family: We found and brought Shane home:

Six persistent volunteer divers went back into the dark, frigid waters of the Schuylkill River on Saturday, looking again for some trace of missing college student Shane Montgomery.

This time, they were successful. They found his body in 36-degree waters 3-4 feet deep, at 12:09 p.m., not far from the Manayunk pub where he was partying the night of Thanksgiving Eve.

Family members were despondent as they stood on the banks of the river when the tragic discovery was made.

Facebook – Help find Shane Montgomery:

Today we have done what we promised. We found and brought Shane home. We want to thank the Garden State Underwater Recovery Unit, Philadelphia Marine Unit, Northwest Detectives, the Philadelphia Police Department, Saint John the Baptist, Mike Rose and the Brew Pub and their employees. We want to thank everyone for their support, prayers, and love and ask that they continue to pray for our family at this trying time. At this time we ask that you please respect our privacy. We need time to mourn together as a family.

UPDATE I: Medical examiner rules death of Shane Montgomery was accidental.

The Philadelphia medical examiner’s office has ruled Shane Montgomery’s death accidental, his uncle said Sunday.

The body of the 21-year-old West Chester University student was found by a volunteer dive team during a search of the Schuylkill River Saturday. His family had watched the recovery effort from the riverbank.

Kevin Verbrugghe, Montgomery’s uncle, said his nephew’s body had been released by the medical examiner’s office and that the family is planning funeral arrangements.
