Navy Football Players Had Clandestine Party House Dubbed "Black Pineapple"

Welp, this is no good. A Naval Academy midshipman, who is alleging three Navy footballers raped her, said it occurred in a clandestine party house dubbed "Black Pineapple" that was obviously forbidden by Navy rules. 

Naval Academy rules require that students live in an on-campus dorm or with sponsor families. The academy also bars plebes from drinking and requires students leave their dorm room door open if a member of the opposite gender is present. To circumvent these rules, many students apparently rent homes like the Black Pineapple, a "brick split-level on a quiet cul de sac lined with cherry trees," for drinking and partying.

According to neighbors, the house was a "nuisance," and police were routinely called for noise and party complaints.

Yeah, that seems like a recipe for disaster. The trial of the accused midshipmen is ongoing. Hopefully the truth comes to light and justice is served. In the mean time, it looks like the Navy has a little bit of cleaning up to do.

I hate hearing stuff like that. These kids should be having a good time. But not hurting others. Not cool man. Not cool at all. 

Bury me in my away jersey, with my buckeye blanket. A diehard who died young. Rip dad.

I had a friend in the Academy a few years back, and based on what he told me about how they party, houses like these are fairly common

What's the appeal in sleeping with essentially dead women? I mean the obvious point against this type of action is that it is pretty f'd up and is a form of rape, but outside of getting over the moral issues, how is anyone also aroused by it? Mind baffling how disgusting it is.
Innocent until proven guilty, but in the wise words of Happy Gilmore, "Pretty sick, Chubbs."

Don't give up... Don't ever give up.

I get what you're saying, you're trying to apply reason and logic to the situation when (I'm assuming) their brains are too impaired to properly do the same. (Obviously this is never justification for this type of behavior)

1) How does anyone think it's okay to take advantage of someone when they're passed out? (Male and Females, alike)
2) Without getting too graphic for 11W, I thought the act was supposed to be fun because of two people being into each other? On top of it being morally disgusting, it's just kinda stupid in the sexual nature as well.
Just terrible and weird all around, if proven to be true.

Don't give up... Don't ever give up.

Its sad to say that some people are turned on by some strange stuff. I just don't get the whole foot fetish stuff. Why would anyone want to lick another person's foot? or even more perverse stuff.
now having a feather tickle my sack is absolutely normal!
joking aside, any form of rape is not acceptable for any reason. Shame these stories are true. Can't we all have fun without this horrible stuff being apart of it!

I saw a UFO told me to have a goodyear!

Those seaman are always causing trouble

I never saw a football player make a tackle with a smile on his face

Yep, the seamen left a stain on the university.

I'm a hurtin' buckaroo.

Well it was inevitable someone would go THERE (seamen).
In fairness to the armed services, these academy kids are just that, kids, fresh out of high school, mostly good scholars , away from home for the first time in their lives. Many are monied kids, as THAT, still plays a part in Academy selection. Their judgment and moral compasses are not where they should be.
These kids are not (yet) career military folks, and it sounds like these ones in particular, never will be, nor should they be.
Their behavior does unfairly stain the reputation of all whom actually are great career soldier and sailors. Sickens me that this is (if it is) an action that has been ongoing and overlooked at the Academy., It does not surprise me though, especially at the Naval academy as they have had more than their share of this type of incidents coming to light recently.
I attended an officer basic school that had many service academy soldiers fresh out of the academy in the class. There were many great academy folks there true loyal service paxs.  This however was my first exposure that there were many schemers and scammers from the academy that were abusing the system to advance their post academy business and political careers by having that "Academy degree and commission" . 
Funny how money and political aspirations can taint noble causes.

I guess their are worse things in the NCAA world then some military personnel just trying to blow off some steam.

Assuming this is actually a brilliantly sarcastic slam on the NCAA and their corrupt/incompetent notion of internal "justice?" Good God, I hope so.

Yes sir, you nailed it.

I live in Annapolis (I can see the academy as I write this) and rented a boat slip to one of them. This definitely surprises me. As a group they are buttoned up pretty tight, with that said most of them come from good families with money and school is free so they often have disposable cash. Pretty ballsy to risk your entire future for a little booze and tang but when I was 18 I did a lot more for less.

I just don't get this stuff...
So far I have made it through college and my younger years without f**king raping anybody.  Hell, I don't even want to!  What are all these college football players/college athletes doing sexually assaulting girls??  It can't be that hard to score a drunk chick at a football party.  Is it steroids or what?  I really just don't get why these guys feel the need to sexually assault girls, when they probably could just wait 5 minutes and a consenting one will wander by...
I can attest to the fact that there is plenty of fun to be had in college in your early 20s without forcing somebody to have sex with you.  I don't play any sports and I still think it's great, and these guys have the jersey chasers thrown on top of that.
Seriously, wtf are these kids thinking?

There ar no jersey chasers for navy football and it's basically an asexual campus as much as possible. Not to say that makes it ok but it is VERY different than OSU.
