I was late to the fact that this couple hung out for 18 days after this event. I doubted the story before I read this, but now there's no way I'm buying this. They'll probably get away with these false charges too making the accusations even more tragic.

There is a level of sarcasm and 'in-your-face-ness' that exists here, and at times we long-term posters forget not everyone has had time to develop the thickened layer of skin we need to post on the more controversial threads. Don't take people disagreeing with you too much to heart, we all aren't going to agree all the time, c'est la vie and all.
Don't worry, my skin is thick enough not to bothered by comments posted here. As with many topics this one is not going to solve anything so I chose to opt out.

How could I leave a forum with posts by Right100 (the bad) and Canukonthego (the great)? And yes I will use pesos, I promise.

The division is clear- some are basing their beliefs on logic, and others on emotion. Isn't that usually the case?

I registered just to respond to this.

As someone who has lived in Playa for 9 years, speaks fluent Spanish, and has friends who are cops I very much doubt this story.

--First off its New Years Eve. For the police one of, if not the, busiest nights of the year. Imagine how many drunks they arrested that night, but they still had time and a vacant place in the detention center, to rape her.

--2nd. She is a social worker. She knows she needs to see a doctor immediately to get evidence of the rape. All we know is the rape kit came back negative, but there should be other signs of forced intercourse if it happened that are detectable.

--3rd. The Boyfriend, who does not speak Spanish, heard from another inmate, that his girlfriend was being raped, and tried to kill himself?

--If even the other inmates knew what was going on, then everyone in the whole jail must have known, and trust me you are not going to keep that many Mexicans quiet about anything.

--Any Mexican Police Officer knows whatever they do with a foreigner, will be looked closely. There are always bad apples, but in this case a few raped, while others watched, and the boss on duty let it go on?

--She is a Social Worker. If anyone knows how much weight the accusation, even without evidence, of rape will carry, it is a social worker.

no its because we live here and we know more what is going on....im out late most nights ,,i see the idiots the police have to deal with....
i have no financial interest in the town and would rather less people came here....especially the 2 in this case......this will probably cause some problems for the town but ofcourse the pair making the accusations ,will anything happen to them if they are lying......they got their 15 mins......
I agree you you! The point I was making by saying that was from one of Rissak that was stating that people get protective of Playa. If I lived there I would want to keep the place as much to myself as possible, and not have these types of idiots causing problems, then crying rape when they get arrested. Nothing will happen to them if they are lying, hopefully they won't come back.

i seriously doubt that if this is proven to be a false accusation that nothing will happen to them. theyve started an international incident and they will be charged here in canada for getting the govt involved. thats in addition to their character being destroyed, as their names are all over the world now. kinda seems like a lot to put up to avoid a drunk and disorderly charge doesnt it?

But I'm not much liking their story as it's unfolding.

Has there been any mention of the incident in the local paper?

Yep.
All of the papers.
Not much different than what we've read elsewhere.
Reported the accusations - local officials taking it seriously
One report stated they are looking for witnesses to the 5th Ave incident that started it all.
Where's the guy with the car??

look at them do you think they care about their characters
they dont have the brains to think this through and now its on the news they are almost famous....problem is it hard for police to prove they are lying,,so thay might get away with the lies
