Wait a minute you haters! First, how dare you try to label this story with a skin color. Secondly, how do you know that this girl recanted her story because it didn't happen? Were you there? Do you think there might be a slight chance that this girl recanted because of the stress or stigma that comes with having to TELL the story and deal with police, her family and maybe her friends?
Perhaps she felt she had to recant because those involved in attacking her made it more personal by threatening her. Unless you were there, don't be so quick to judge her. If she flat out lied about everything then she will have to live with the concequences, regardless of her skin color.
You don't know what happened, and God forbid you should EVER be put in that type of situation.

@ Steve: Wylie added, "The important thing is that there (are) not two men out there attacking women." These are the MVPD words, not the girl who recanted her story. Recant means to 'withdraw'. Just because she withdrew her statement, doesn't mean it didn't happen. But I'm not saying it did, and I'm not saying it didn't. I'm saying that unless you have proof, don't judge.
