Well, at least we're back to actual news and facts

 

Yes, until the "Kane is guilty of something" crowd comes in here and starts twisting the facts of the matter.

Full statement here: http://www.wgrz.com/story/news/2015/11/05/patrick-kane-case-over/75203792/

 

 

"The totality of the credible evidence – the proof – does not sufficiently substantiate the complainant’s allegation that she was raped by Patrick Kane and this so-called 'case' is rife with reasonable doubt..."
 

 

Maybe this is how Sedita always talks, I have no idea, but that language right there certainly strikes me as a judgment on the credibility of the claim beyond the lack of evidence.

He's a 26 yr old pro athlete millionaire who brought a girl home from a bar? That happens in every US city every weekend. What exactly are you talking about? 

 

Patty I'm not going to get in a debate with you about Pats choices but its clear after the cup win that he layed down the gauntlet when he basically said publicly that he was going to get inebriated . This guy is becoming known for making poor choices. He needs to protect himself from doing that.

Zees thread, ees done. No?

 

I mean. Unless the accuser brings on a civil suit. Which I guess is possible. But that'd call for a re-naming of the thread, I suppose. (Is this my thread? Can I do that?)

 

And agreed that the D.A. came on stronger than I would have expected.

 

I wonder if and when that more detailed confidential letter from the D.A. to the Hamburg P.D. can be FOIA'd?

The language is clearly intentional.  If I were to guess, I would say he chose to say it this way to help shape the public discussion - ie. to, in a way, help Kane with the reputation problem this has brought on.

If it's your thread you have the ability to close it. 

 

I would motion for that, since clearly this is no longer an investigation.

But, we haven't resolved the "it's not the nature of the evidence; it's the seriousness of the charge" aspect.  What about those who don't care about the DA's conclusion, where will they go if this thread is closed?

And I still can't remember how to edit thread titles. Little help? I'd like to change it before I close it.

We're done here. Investigation closed. Case closed.

The NHL released a statement on its internal resolution of this matter.

 

“Based on its review, including the determination made by the Erie County District Attorney not to pursue charges, the NHL has concluded that the allegations made against Kane were unfounded,” the NHL announced. “The league considers the matter closed and will have no further comment.”

He has a long way to go to mend his relationship with the Buffalo people, Sadly for him this will never blow over, he will always be labeled with the rape tag.

His bad rep and antics before this case also didn't help things.   

But hopefully in time this will fade and people can come respect the player that he is again.

I love this exchange from the article:

 

Not anymore. The summer’s travails, the way the city divided on him, that howling crowd at First Niagara Center all served to lend Kane a bit of clarity. “It just seems like it’s kind of 50-50—and it always has been—whether people like me in Buffalo or they hate me,” he said to his dad last month.

 

“That’s what they said about Gretzky in his hometown,” Tiki said in response. The message: Greatness spawns resentment.

 

What?!?  Am I the last to know that 50% of Brantford, Ontario hates Wayne Gretzky?!?  I've never really heard of anybody hating him, much less in his own hometown.

 

Tiki - maybe being a dbag spawns resentment - not greatness.

 

You might be able to compare Kane and Gretzky on the ice, but off the ice, there is no comparison. 

 

The same could be said of Tiki Kane and Walter Gretzky.
