I have been inundated from all over both with phone calls and emails with people wanting my thoughts or what I know about the Shaun Rogers situation. I usually respond to every email sent to me but there have been so many that I just can’t so here is my statement about the situation.

Â
I was made aware of it on Saturday, late in the afternoon. At this point it is a he said she said. I am sure that I am not privy to all of the information but I am getting good information. If Shaun did what he is being accused of it is horrendous. If he didn’t then the fact that he is getting accused is horrendous.Â

Â
I hope we all learned from the Duke case that a rush to judgment can be just as bad as ignoring a crime. However this turns out I have strong opinions and thoughts and I even have an idea of what will happen. My point is simply that this isn’t about who gets what position or who has the best footwork; this is about either a man’s reputation being dragged through the mud wrongfully or a woman being brutalized in the worst way.

Â
Again, I have my idea of how this is going to turn out based on the information I have but I want to tread lightly so as to get it right. I trust that you all feel the same way. I am sick of the media not telling the story but trying to be it.

Â
M readers and viewers trust me to be accurate with my stories. I value that trust. I value it enough to wait for an arrest or to hear more information from valuable sources. Who cares what the media thinks anyways. This is a very serious situation that deserves being handled with the utmost of caution.Â
