Jameis Winston

Alleged Rape Victim:

Cops Warned Me to Back Off

Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston allegedly did far more than sexually assault a woman ... she says he RAPED her, and cops then warned her that she was living in Winston country and she had better back down if she knew what was good for her.

The alleged victim just went public with the alleged corrupt investigation by the Tallahassee Police Dept., in which she claims she immediately reported the incident back in December to cops, but was later told, Tallahassee was a big football town and that she would be "raked over the coals" and her life "will be made miserable" if she pursued it. 

And there's more ... The victim says her lawyer repeatedly tried to obtain blood work and DNA results from the crime lab, but was told if she persisted the whole thing would become a public spectacle.

According to the statement, Winston's roommate witnessed the alleged rape but the cop refused to interview him.

TMZ broke the story about the investigation, and the curious timing ... the cops didn't forward the case to prosecutors for 10 months -- EXACTLY ONE DAY after TMZ began poking around and calling the PD.

You are a naïve, pathetic moron if you trust cops anywhere in the USA. If they haven't bullied you, lied to you, disgraced themselves in front of you while hiding behind their "colors"...trust me...they will.

Sorry but I have trouble believing this woman's story. She could have gone to the press back in December just like she is doing now. She could have gone to the hospital and got her own rape test done and nobody could have refused her the results.

Turn your camera phone on anytime you speak to a cop. They are the biggest liars.

Ok, this was last December before Winston was even in college. He was in highschool! No one knew who he was! This is such bull****. The victim DID NOT want it reported thats why the case was let go. If she does not want to press charges the case goes away. Now that he is famous people are looking for any way to bring him down. Leave him alone. This is bull****. I am ashamed to read TMZ now that I know how much crap this is. And why isnt he arrested if he raped someone??? HELLO?

The ALLEGED victim. At this point, I think it perfectly reasonable to refer to Winston as the possible victim. And I can't stand that JUCO they call a University in Tallahassee or their football team.

Men that hurt women are s***. Winston has a cold dark cell waiting for him shortly. The police that tried to cover this up have cells waiting for them as well.

If a PRISONER at the Guantanamo Bay detention camp, as much as suggested that he was being intimidated, harassed, denied a new prayer rug---OBAMA, the Department of Justice, FBI, CIA, Department of State, Homeland Security, and the rest of the king's men would go on high alert, kissing the PRISONERS ass and conducted an INTENSE INVESTIGATION--AND HEADS WOULD ROLL. But corrupt Californian (and it's affliates) courts who pisss on the law and thugs with police badges are allowed to beat the sh!t out of innocent citizens occur all day every day right here in the USofA
---and [crickets]
Three more years of Obama--and followed with GOD FORBID--Hillary Clinton--and you can kiss this country goodbye... It's already morally bankrupt. That tag team will turn this country into the United States of Anarchy and Atheism

The Truth    

More trouble...for Jameis and local police....

It is being reported that 2 other women had reported being raped or assaulted by Jamies in the past and nothing was done by local police.

Federal investigators have now opened a criminal investigation on both Jameis and the local police for violations of both criminal and civil rights statutes.

Yeah    

He was NOT in high school when this happened. He was a red-shirt freshamn who didnt play. EJ Manuel was the QB at the time. So why would the cops tell her she was in "Winston country"? At the time, it was "Manuel country"! Maybe she should have thought this bs through a little more before she tried to start crap. Funny how she didnt come forward until halfway through the season when he will most likely be in the championship game.
