Girl Sought Man To Beat Her Then Reported Rape

From the Daily Caller:

Student sought man on Craigslist to beat her up and have sex with her, then reported it as rape

By Eric Owens | April 2, 2013

A student who was visiting the University of California, Santa Cruz for a lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender conference in February claimed that she had been raped in broad daylight on the school’s campus.

Turns out, though, Morgan Triplett’s story was a hoax. According to police, the bizarre truth is that she successfully used Craigslist to locate a stranger who agreed to beat her up in exchange for sex.

Triplett, 20, a student at University of California-Santa Barbara, allegedly posted two abuser-wanted ads in the Santa Cruz County region of Craigslist. In both, she promised she wouldn’t file charges.

The one seeking somebody to shoot her in the shoulder in exchange for sex didn’t pan out. However, Triplett did find someone willing to “punch, kick and bruise her in exchange for sex,” reports the Register-Pajaronian.

Triplett met her unnamed mangler somewhere on or near the UC Santa Cruz campus, reports local NBC affiliate KSBW.

According to court records, “they had sex and afterwards she used a cellphone screen reflection as a mirror to see if the injuries were bad enough. (Triplett) then directed him to hit her some more.”

With fresh bruises to substantiate her twisted tale, Triplett then notified 911 that a mysterious assailant had raped and pummeled her while she was walking on a path looking for banana slugs (the UCSC mascot, incidentally).

Prosecutor Johanna Schonfield noted that local law enforcement had wasted countless hours investigating the fraudulent crime.

Schonfield also noted that investigators became suspicious of Triplett’s story when she sought to prevent DNA samples during a sexual assault exam.

Triplett’s motive, such as it may have been, is not clear.

“She was suicidal, and she wanted something to almost bring her back to reality,” Schonfeld suggested.

In an interview, Triplett’s father curiously argued that his daughter wanted to get beaten up but did not want to be raped.

“What we’re dealing with is a very scared, very upset, very confused 20-year-old girl who has made some poor choices,” he told the Register-Pajaronian.

He added somewhat cryptically that there are “two sides to every story.”

In a court appearance on Friday, the student pleaded not guilty and was released on her own recognizance. Prosecutors and her defense attorney agreed that she shouldn’t stay in jail because she is currently undergoing psychological treatment for depression.

“Right now I just want this to settle down,” Triplett told the Register-Pajaronian in a brief interview outside the courthouse. “I’m trying to move on with my life.”

Triplett was presumably in Santa Cruz for the UC Santa Cruz Western Regional LGBTQIA Conference 2013, “a conference that is rooted in the inclusiveness of all queer identities and its intersections, especially those based in sexuality, class, gender and race.”

Workshops at that conference included “Body Image 101: Destigmatizing Queer Bodies,” “Navigating Polyamory” and “WHAT A SLUT: Addressing the Stereotype of the “Slutty” Bi/Pan/Fluid Individual.”

‘L’amour, l’amour.’

Actually, it looks like another person who was trying to pull a hoax attack to get some fame. But then again it could just be another entry in the annals of the ‘new normal.’

    Sorry, but what kind of scumbag beats up a woman, whether she asks or not? When is that ever okay? What a piece of sh*t. Find him, if he exists, and charge him.

    Oh… yeah. Well that makes sense then.

    “What we’re dealing with is a very scared, very upset, very confused 20-year-old girl who has made some poor choices,” he said.

    But she should definitely be allowed to vote.

    No Rev. Al Sharpton to complete the story?

    Really??!! A 20-year-old GIRL? Female, yes (supposedly). Girl, no. She can consent to all sorts of bizzare activities from gang sex to beastiality to lesbianism to Lord knows what, and is not to be criticized. She can abort her child at will without her parents knowledge. She can parade around naked in public during one of these LGBT parades, all in the name of “freedom of expression” with impunity.

    She’s no girl, and certainly she’s no lady. ‘Confused’ is the kindest descriptive I can think to apply to her. Sick hits closer to home. As for who answered her ad, he’s no more sick than is she for placing it. That anyone thinks she should get a pass because of her gender speaks volumes about wheere we have sunken as a society.

    These two have actively campaigned for and created the world in which they live. It sounds like a match made in hell. Too bad they don’t believe in it.

      When people roll their eyeballs and treat women like middle school children, you can bet they are going to get an earful of neanderthal / sexism comments. HOWEVER, when it’s to a woman’s benefit to be treated like a confused, depressed weirdo, WELL, then I guess we can let that one slide.

      Strong, tough, activist woman, pays someone to kick her arse, so she can fit in with the other strong, tough, activist homosexuals, and then gives her body away as a bonus.

      We have seen this countless times with 30 year old Sandra Fluke, and also Audrey Seiler: http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,117088,00.html

      Maybe it’s time to repeal the 19th Amendment. I mean, come on! Women act like this, and can’t secure our rights with respect to the 2nd Amendment, maybe we should start restricting or repealing women’s right to vote.

    So we can assume that she is lesbian or bi or sympathetic to the gay cause. Taking that into account, what twisted reason could she possibly have to get raped and beaten while attending this event? Possibly to become a celebrity, talking head, or spokesperson for the abuse that homosexuals endure from straights? It’s a plan right up there with the genius of “Fast and Furious”. Look what school shootings have done to the political debate in just the last few months. Free birth control??

    The one seeking somebody to shoot her in the shoulder in exchange for sex didn’t pan out. So, as a first choice, she was willing to be SHOT for her cause. Yup, sounds like a wingnut liberal mindjob. And in typical liberal fashion, the plan failed to have the desired effect. And now she just wants to put it all behind her? I’LL BET! And when did being depressed become a get out of jail free card? Insanity is not an excuse for this. It’s the CAUSE. Put this piece of trash in a softly padded room and keep her there. Medicate her as if she were a 5 year old boy with A.D.D.

    while she was walking on a path looking for …banana slugs (the UCSC mascot, incidentally).What kind of mascot is a bannana slug anyway? GooooOOOOO Slugs?

    LGBTQIA ? OK, I’m not up on all the latest abbreviations. I get Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgendered, and I assume the Q is for Queer… but what’s the I.A. for? Cheese-n-Rice… how many orientations are there?

    In short, she should be jailed for her actions regardless of the state of her confusion, and her father should be arrested for contributing to the stupidity of his daughter. He probably let her play violent video games. (Or gave her daily doses of CNN and MSNBC)

      What happened:
      ► Goes to a LGBTQIAXYZPDQ conference.
      ► Is sympathetic to their cause.
      ► Pays someone to rape/beat her.
      ► Didn’t look properly victimized, so she asks to get beaten more.
      ► Makes claim she was raped (by a hetero) in broad daylight (those brazen S.O.B.s!)

      What should have happened:
      ♥ Gets “street cred” as a victim.
      ♥ Get accepted as an abused minority.
      ♥ Her story is picked up by the news media.
      ♥ Gets to be a notable speaker for the LGBTQIAXYZPDQ alliance.
      ♥ Pushes legislation to further help women and punish heteros.
      ♥ Morgan’s Law is signed by the governor giving greater protections to ______________ people. Morgan Triplett is at the signing, gets a pen, invited to some event in Washington D.C.
      ♥ Morgan runs for office and wins!

      OOPS! None of that happened!

      BTW it’s: Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transsexual, Queer, Intersex, Asexual. (Get ready for more victim groups demanding more rights for their behavior)
      It’s a way for gay people to make coalitions to increase their numbers, just like the Gay/Straight Alliance, which suckers straight people into supporting them. Hmm, sounds exactly like how the democrat party works doesn’t it?

    Oh but if Rod Serling was alive today.

    “But this young lady has just made a bargain with something she’s about to find out is only real….in the twilight zone.”

    “I’m very scared and very upset, please punch me in the face” said no one ever.

    On the nose, Mithrandir.
