No -- on the whole it is better not to prosecute people for making false charges, because it would scare away too many people from making charges that are legitimate, especially against richer or better connected people. Perhaps a private lawsuit would be in order if she made statements to the press.
But I have a question for you -- why did you identify her as black?
Responses: I do remember Tawana Brawley. In her case, as well as in the Duke lacrosse case, I didn't believe all the accusations. But lots of people of all types make false accusations, and in this case the fact that the woman was black has nothing to do with the heart of the case, unless you think that's what the frat boys wanted to hire her. I don't see whay the fact that a young black woman charged people with rape more than fifteen years ago makes the fact that the woman charging rape in the Duke case is balck relevant -- twice in over 15 years in entirely different parts of the country and entirely different circumstances isn't much of a pattern.
To people attacking the woman for being a stripper -- falsely accusing someone of rape is bad. But being a stripper is --whether you think it bad or not -- less bad than hiring a stripper, and way less hypocritical than hiring a stripper for your own satisfaction, and then mocking her for providing it to you.
Lastly, her reporting a false charge would not have harmed these guys if the D.A. hadn't believed her, and made a big deal about it. His job was to judge the credibility of the charges better than he did -- one reason we have a DA to do this, is so that people can make charges without fear of being prosecuted even if the claims aren't ultimately proven or believed to be true.
