    There are a lot of rumors as to who else was on the plane, but I'd really advise everyone to take a lot of those with a huge grain of salt until official confirmation.

    Also I know this is probably the big topic in the NBA thread but this kinda news probably deserves it's own thing, I dunno.

    Kobe Bryant raped a 19 year old girl. There was DNA evidence. He got off because he was rich.

    I'm sorry for the children on that helicopter

    Sheriff's Department press conference just said there were 8 passengers and 1 pilot. No names have been officially released and they blasted TMZ for reporting them.

    I dont know what happened with them, but how does DNA prove it? He admitted to having sex with her, how does DNA prove or disprove consent?

    That was what the pre-trial turned on, basically. He claimed it was consensual sex, she said otherwise, and as often the case there was little other compelling direct evidence.

    His victim had vaginal lacerations inconsistent with consensual sex. He admitted to having sex with her once the detectives said she had submitted to a rape kit. And the lacerations could only have been caused within 24 hours of the rape.

    The only reasons he ever got to do any kind of paid spokesmanship after that are because he was a rapist who happened to be good at a game, he was rich, and we don’t believe women who are raped.

    I’m not, like, happy he’s dead. He should have had to face justice. And calling it “karma” or whatever is insensitive to all the other people who were killed in the crash, none of whom deserved it.

    Ok, thank you for highlighting the physical evidence. I dont need to be particularly pedantic, I'll accept that was what was actually meant by the DNA proof (not that I never needed proof, I was just honestly confused what was meant by that).

    Any time you see a woman and her reputation dragged through the mud in the lead up to a criminal rape case, you can pretty much go ahead and assume the defendant is a rapist.

    I found out about this news from a friend who always makes "rip" jokes on facebook. When I saw the second one, I realized he wasn't joking.

    I did not know anything about the rape stuff until this thread.

    No matter one's feelings about Kobe himself, this is a tragedy.

    That's a pretty good point. I was never saying he wasnt a rapist. I was never making a case at all about the likelihood that he did what he was accused of. I was just confused about how DNA figured in.
