A rape victim not being able to accurately guess the height of her attacker is probably way down the list of things police should be worried about. Especially when she specifically named him and his DNA is found on her panties. I'm assuming the situation a few months ago at Vandy was handled a bit differently than how the TPD handled this Jameis Winston case?
I really don't know what to think about this. When the reports first surfaced about a week ago I thought this case going to the state attorney's office was a ploy because Winston was famous. But the more details that come out, it is looking worse and worse on both Winston and FSU.
If the woman claimed she was raped, and the police had her underwear wouldn't they have don't a rape kit as well? Its unfortunate but I can buy into the Tallahassee police "telling" her that she doesn't want to proceed with charges. I don't think any program should make snap decisions (see Dez Wells) but things are getting worse for Jamis.
