A gang-rape is a very serious crime and is handled by the police with very high priority... if there is a credible evidence it actually happened. The police isn't omniscient or infallible, but given what we know, the most likely explanation is that it was made up by someone who has a screw loose.
Your white-knighting of the PVV does not make you seem open-minded.
I suppose in today's absurd extremist political climate the very idea of shutting up about a situation rather than using it to your advantage is crazy talk. And asking for moderation and objectivity and, oh, a little bit of style and class is seen as "white-knighting".
And so you use a tragedy as a political tool and feel no qualms about it. It is how we roll these days, isn't it?
