"The faculty who signed the April 6 advertisement (and its “clarifier”), students who rushed to judgment and condemned the lacrosse team, and all others who abandoned valued members of our community in their darkest hour need to reach out and apologize.

As soon as she was out, she recanted the rape allegation and told Sergeant John Shelton, "No, I wasn't raped." And while he was calling that in, somebody says, "Well, she's changed it again. During the course of the night, she said she had been raped by 20 men, five men, three men, four men, take your pick."
And her story continued to be wild and crazy and inconsistent and implausible, self-contradictory and contradicted by all medical evidence from that point forward. None of the police at the hospital believed her. [...]
