Crime scene with broken table and shattered glass at gang rape fraternity house

From Sabrina Rubin Ederly’s “A Rape on Campus: A Brutal Assault and Search for Justice at UVA” in Rolling Stone.

“Shut up,” she heard a man’s voice say as a body barreled into her, tripping her backward and sending them both crashing through a low glass table. There was a heavy person on top of her, spreading open her thighs, and another person kneeling on her hair, hands pinning down her arms, sharp shards digging into her back, and excited male voices rising all around her …

Just like in the photo of the fraternity house crime scene above with the low table and all the shattered glass!

Oh …

Wait …

The “crime scene” in “Gone Girl”

I’m terribly sorry, this is actually a still from the recent hit movie Gone Girl, with Ben Affleck suspected of murdering his wife when she disappears.

Coincidence? Or image system?

I believe the detective in Gone Girl later brings up the shattered glass in a skeptical fashion, but I won’t give away too many spoilers.

Thanks to commenter Christopher Anderson for pointing out the connection.

  1. Looks more like a Ted Kennedy Georgetown bang apartment than a frat house. Seriously: Looks way too nice. Anyone ever seen a frat house with coordinated decor? I haven’t ;)

    Watson has to pay a capital-gains tax on the sale itself-- and, now, an additional gift tax on the sale price, as well! I assume that the United States Treasury is content with the prize's being returned to its original American recipient. Watson himself would have been better off, however, if the Russian kleptocrat had simply gifted him the cash. It even might have been arranged tax-free, if the laureate and the kleptocrat had had a chance to discuss it first, over a drink. Live and learn....
  3. Ederly could be taken to court and found guilty of plagiarism, even though it was probably subconscious, like George Harrison with My Sweet Lord.

    They might have trouble finding her, though. She’s probably hiding out in a cheap motel with a wad of cash. Or would that be Jackie?

    "Ederly could be taken to court...They might have trouble finding her, though."

    She's going to want control of her side of the story (like the kind Jackie said she wanted, for perhaps similar reasons, though Ederly denied her that). There's undoubtedly a large number of news outlets lining up to hear her version of things, after all. One strategy would be to hold out until there's a bidding war of sorts among them, then pick the one that winks convincingly enough to make her believe they won't press too hard, or maybe even allows her to present her case autobiographically.

    Stephen Glass, the man she once so admired, got a book deal and a documentary out of his downfall, and given that she will claim her mistakes were a result of selfless fervor for the greater good, she can do a lot better than he did. But I would guess that this is a story where she'll want to sweat the details, for once.

    I'm also guessing she'll skip the Washington Post.

  4. LOL at the glass image system. Here’s another one:

    So she made up an elaborate lie about a fake hunky guy who was gaga over her to make herself look good, and then had no good way to end the lie that didn’t make her look like like a complete jackass to her crush and all her friends.

    Where do you think she was hiding that night of her fake date? Do you suppose maybe she was crying the whole night because of her foolishness? Do you suppose she needed a way to explain to her friends why she looked like she had been crying the whole night of her hot date with George Glass? Do you suppose she needed a way to end the George Glass story to her friends that didn’t involve a fake dump plot or an admission that she had lied constantly to everyone to try and cover what a desperate and pathetic girl she was?

  6. More clips from the original series showing the archetype of the losergirl with an elaborate made-up boyfriend story. There’s an amusing amount of overalap between Jan and our girl Jackie.

    Vic,

    I thought about spoilers in my original comment, but those two pieces of information from Gone Girl are really no more or less than you would get from viewing the movie trailer.

    Neil Patrick Harris is Hollywood’s go to actor when they want a Homosexual man to play a Heterosexual male role. He is the new Rock Hudson.

  10. We haven’t seen this much creative lying since Casey Anthony. At least there is no dead baby to dig up in this case although if this Feminist Jihad had not stopped there would have been at least metaphorically some strange fruit frat-boys swinging from the trees.

    But in order to really understand this story we have to contrast the actions of two women in positions of responsiblity and judge how they carried out their porfessional duties –Dean Eramo and Sabrina Rubin-Erdely. Here is the key paragraph from the original RS story:

    For now, however, Jackie left her first meeting with Eramo feeling better for having unburdened herself, and with the dean’s assurance that nothing would be done without her say-so. Eramo e-mailed a follow-up note thanking Jackie for sharing, saying, “I could tell that was very difficult for you,” and restating that while she respected Jackie’s wish not to file a report, she’d be happy to assist “if you decide that you would like to hold these men accountable.” In the meantime, having presumably judged there to be no threat to public safety, the UVA administration took no action to warn the campus that an allegation of gang rape had been made against an active fraternity.

    Both women spoke intimately with Jackie. Dean Eramo made the correct call and she, “judged there to be no threat to public safety” while the Rubin-Erdely made the wrong call and attempted to launch a high-tech Nuremberg Trial by media and put in the dock the supposed Rape Gestapo she thought she uncovered at U-Va. Was Rubin-Erdely merely stupid in believing Jackie or was she pure evil in manipulating this troubled girl?

    How long will Jackie stick with her fable? Casey Anthony would only back down from her lies after running them to extreme levels. She insisted she worked at an amusement park and accompanied the police there where they asked her to point out her office. Only then did she back off on a detail or two.

    This has been a good teaching moment. I have shared this story with my two teenage sons and warned them they need to develop strong psycho detectors. And also to avoid the ghetto morals of Roissy and to use their upper-hand with women to find good quality girlfriends, not to exploit and then dump women like a parasitical Goldman Sachs banker leeches off his host society.

    I hope Jackie’s parents are surrounding her with the proper mental health professionals. Friday evenings are always a good time for the media to dump inconvenient facts that conflict with dominant Narratives. In the end Jackie was disturbed and needs help not hate. The real target of hate and anger has to be the agent pure evil, Sabrina Rubin-Erdely.

  11. Included in the Cromnibus:

    $257 million for the Pentagon’s Sexual Assault Prevention and Response programs, including $25 million more to expand the Sexual Assault Victims’ Counsel program. But Democrats, led by Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), are expected to make a final push to expand the program this week.

    Heckuva job, Ederly!

  12. College is a good place to make up stories.

    I experienced this in college back in the 80s when a young man called David Hampton somehow landed in my college dorm room. For an hour or two, my roommate and I were taken in by his elaborate and fascinating song and dance about his background and activities. This con man was later made famous by the Broadway play Six Degrees of Separation:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Hampton

    Thinking back upon why we had been taken in by his (retrospectively) preposterous stories, I realized that college, a place where we were supposed to learn and practice critical thinking, was in fact highly vulnerable to con artists:

    - college students are just out of their family environment, learning a whole lot of new things, academically and socially,
    - college encourages you to have an open mind, to disbelieve the ordinary, and to seek out the extraordinary,
    - college is a high-trust environment, where (supposedly) everyone has been selected for their ability to teach and learn,
    - young people are dumb.
