PUBLIC OPINION AGAINST STANLEY CUP CHAMPION PATRICK KANE By Robin Barnes

patrick KaneEfforts to shift the culture of rape that places heavy burdens upon the victim may influence public perception in weighing the facts. The dilemma of course is that the extra-judicial statements, leaks, pre-trial speculation, and face book proclamations affect the ultimate quest for justice by offering nearly everything but the facts.

Alleged Facts

A summary of the reports surfacing about the ongoing investigation into the rape allegations reveal that the victim was 26 years old when she and a friend met a world-famous athlete at a local bar on August 2, 2015. He invited the pair back to his house, the friend wanted to go, the target did not, but she went any way to prevent her friend from going alone. A few hours later she was at the local hospital for forensic testing after being overpowered by the hockey star.

Two sources: a law enforcement official and a member of Buffalo’s legal community are reported to have leaked this information.

EA Sports then removed Kane’s photo from the cover of its NHL16 video game.
