Report: Family wants Tawana Brawley Rape case reopened
    #7650392 - 11/18/07 11:45 AM (12 years, 7 months ago)

NEW YORK (AP) -- Twenty years after her allegations of a racially charged rape became a national flash point, Tawana Brawley's mother and stepfather want to reopen the case, a newspaper reported Sunday.




Glenda Brawley and Ralph King want to press New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer and state Attorney General Andrew Cuomo to re-examine the November 1987 incident, which a state grand jury ultimately concluded was a hoax, the Daily News reported.

"New York state owes my daughter. They owe her the truth," said Glenda Brawley. She reiterated her stance that her daughter was indeed raped by a group of white men who smeared her with feces and scrawled racial epithets on her body.

Representatives for Spitzer and Cuomo did not immediately respond to telephone and e-mail messages.

Brawley was 15 when she went missing for four days from her home in Wappingers Falls, about 75 miles north of New York. After being found, she made the shocking allegation that she had been abducted and raped by six white law enforcement officials.

The case quickly made headlines and drew the attention of the Rev. Al Sharpton, who became an outspoken advocate for the teen.

But a special state grand jury found evidence Brawley had fabricated her story. A former Dutchess County prosecutor who had been implicated in the case later sued Brawley, Sharpton and other Brawley advisers for defamation, winning a $345,000 judgment against the advisers and a $185,000 judgment against Brawley.

A spokeswoman for Sharpton, who was held liable for $65,000 in the case, did not immediately respond to an e-mail message early Sunday. The former prosecutor's attorney did not immediately return a telephone message.


Brawley, now 35, rarely emerges from her self-imposed exile these days, returning to New York only as a guest of the United African Movement, established by Sharpton and her lawyers to lend her name to civil rights cases. She accepts free flights and limousine rides from the group to merely appear at its events.

Brawley’s family said she does not wear a hijab, or head scarf, but is a devout Muslim, a conversion that began during the trial when Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan gave her the name Maryam Muhammad.

Her parents, who are Christians, said she can call any mosque in the world and will be provided with security, if her advisers from New York or her specially trained dog cannot protect her.

Brawley insist no white man has ever been convicted of raping a black woman and they say Tawana, who has been accused of not ever telling her story, will speak if the file is opened.

“How could we make this up and take down the state of New York? We’re just regular people,” Glenda Brawley said to her husband. “We should be millionaires.”

Now what on earth would make these people want to get back in the limelight? Hmmmmmmmmm, what could it be? Ohh, I got it:

“We should be millionaires.”




No, you stupid slag, you are not REGULAR people. You are scum. Also a liar. A great many white men have been convicted of raping black women. The nearest I could come to supporting this ludicrous allegation is something along the lines of this:

Quote:

in the South, not a single white man was convicted of raping a black female between 1607 and 1965.




I'm not so sure I believe that either.

This report says that blacks commit most violent crimes in the USA, using gov't stats and correcting for socioeconomic status.

Of course the case quickly drew the attention of the Racist Al Sharpton... you can usually find him fanning the flames of racism and hate, as long as a camera is around.

"The racial epithets written on her were upside-down, which led to suspicion that Brawley herself wrote the words. Testimony from her schoolmates indicated she had attended a local party during the time of her supposed abduction, and one witness claimed to have observed Brawley climbing into the garbage bag"

The word "nigger" that was scrawled on her was spelled incorrectly (it only had one "g" in it).


Even a dumb ass illiterate white racist would know how to spell THAT word correctly. :rolleyes:

unbelievable...

I have no comment on the political nature of this article, but Sharpton's hair in that picture is amazing.

That is style.

I don't know why this is even called the Tawana "rape" case. It should be called the Stephen Pagones defamation case. Do you think these shitbags ever paid up?
