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.Â I usually respond to every email sent to me but there have been so many that I just canâ€™t so here is my statement about the situation.
I was made aware of it on Saturday, late in the afternoon.Â At this point it is a he said she said.Â I am sure that I am not privy to all of the information but I am getting good information.Â If Shaun did what he is being accused of it is horrendous.Â If he didnâ€™t then the fact that he is getting accused is horrendous.Â
I hope we all learned from the Duke case that a rush to judgment can be just as bad as ignoring a crime.Â However this turns out I have strong opinions and thoughts and I even have an idea of what will happen.Â My point is simply that this isnâ€™t about who gets what position or who has the best footwork; this is about either a manâ€™s reputation being dragged through the mud wrongfully or a woman being brutalized in the worst way.
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.Â I trust that you all feel the same way.Â I am sick of the media not telling the story but trying to be it.
M readers and viewers trust me to be accurate with my stories.Â I value that trust.Â I value it enough to wait for an arrest or to hear more information from valuable sources.Â Who cares what the media thinks anyways.Â This is a very serious situation that deserves being handled with the utmost of caution.Â
