Who do I need to rape to be this guy?

Three-time-rapist-and-counting is happily throwing the pigskin for Pittsburg Steelers during Spring training as the NFL decides what to do with their prized white, oh I mean, golden ticket.

Yes I did say THREE.

So let's go through them.

Rape #1 - A woman in her early 20s who worked at a golf course near R-dog's home in Lake Oconee, Georgia. One evening she acted acted as a "designated driver" and took the athlete home who then forced her to stay as he pulled down his pants and told her that she could do whatever she wanted with him. A week later at one of his home parties he raped her in his bedroom. Read the details here in the Smoking Gun.

Rape #2 - At the Harrah's in Lake Tahoe, an employee accused R-dog of beating and raping her in the casino while holding her against her will. The two-time Superbowl champ said that they had a relationship which involved consensual sex. Her history of mental health issues (especially the piece where she was seeking help for a fictitious lover) discredited her claims.

Rape #3 - In Milledgevill, GA, R-dog intoxicates a 20-year-old college, sorority woman at a club who says she was later violated while in a drunken stupor. There was a video surveillance tape of the night that R-dog was offering the college student shots, but mysteriously it has disappeared. Though her physical examine shows trauma parallel to rapes, it is dismissed due to her inability to totally give detailed information of the night in question.

Here is a quote from the NY Times that talks about the latest victim's account.

Bright said the woman and Roethlisberger had been drinking and had met at different bars in Milledgeville during the evening. Some of their conversations were of a sexual nature, Bright said. Roethlisberger’s group ended up in the V.I.P. area of one club, and when the woman and her friends arrived, he invited them to join him and bought shots of alcohol.

“Everyone agrees that the victim was highly intoxicated,” Bright said.

Later, Bright said, one of Roethlisberger’s bodyguards escorted the woman down a back hallway, and Roethlisberger followed her into a small bathroom, which Bright said was less than five feet wide.

“Significant questions about what occurred persist,” he said.

The woman was eventually driven to the hospital by friends, and an emergency room doctor and two nurses examined her. Bright said that they noted a superficial laceration, bruising and slight bleeding in her genital area, but that everything else was normal and that the doctor could not say definitively that the bruising was from any kind of trauma or sexual assault.

The gross disparity between the treatment of black athletes and their "ciminal charges" and in particular, when it is linked to their sexuality is as wide as the distribution of wealth in America.

Bigger than Moses parting the violent, red pun intended.

Tiger, Kobe, Michael, Jack Johnson...the list goes on.

Apparently you've got to be slightly intoxicated for him to take notice.....or not.

I'm a proud Steelers fan, but I'm willing to bet that he's done this far more often than is known.

Reggie said...

Doesn't look good does it?!? Even though he hasn't been convicted of a crime, he's going to get suspended by the NFL tomorrow or Wednesday. The Steelers fan in me is disappointed, but the father in me is pissed at this predatory son of a bitch!!!

If there were any justice, next time he'd run into a woman with five or six big out of work brothers.......who are Baltimore Ravens or Cleveland Browns fans.

He apparently needs his ass whipped and whipped in good fashion.

There will be no justice for any of Big Ben's victims,money is the opertive word in the Georgia case,Reggie I think you said it best over at my spot"money talks bullshit walks".

Hey Regge and Big Mac, R-Dog needs a serious ass whooping. Or perhaps, one week in general population somewhere like in Rykers where they know he is taking things that were not given to him. Ohhh wee, talk about hut-hut-hike!

Now you see how some are made to be an example, while others are exonerated from a righteous scathing. He needs a fine, a suspension, a bitch slap, and a kick in the sacs by an honery goat.
