If you believe your own statement then you are out of your mind. The only thing that changed for Gamble was she is recognized on the Peninsula as a street wh-re who has no standards whatsoever.

what about the victims what did they have to gain by coming forward nothing .it all about having a fancy attorney who knows how to twist things around. what about the victims lifes that were changed for ever. i guess that means nothing. great reporting wtkr.
this so called victim is a piece of trash looking for a pot of gold. Real victims do not get raped and then go to a former boyfriend's home and sleep with him for three hours instead of seeking medical attention. I use to work with her for s short period of time and I thought she was out of her mind. I hope the officer can sue her but why waste his time and money. Yes, what about the victim's life, she made her bed so let her.......you know the rest. Believe me her own family will not have anything to do with her. That ought to tell you something. The officer who investigated this case should be fired as he is dangerous.

Wow....how many victims have to come forward? I hope you are never raped by an officer..maybe you would glue your lips shut after that.
To boot...let me enlighten you, oh ye of little knowledge.....in this particuliar case, Detective "V" was NOT allowed to swear out warrants until he was granted permission. The investigation lasted a month. At which time, "V" was given the "green light" to pursue warrants.
It's sad that you, as many others, are not aware of the facts. But, as a child, I played telephone too.
You and V are both liars. Not a single person approved his conduct. They are not stupid.

V is a good man and a good cop. He did what he believed was right. Alot of people believe in him, too.
V must have written this statement. A month and a half after the second trial he is still trying to justify his conduct. He is telling everyone in the department that he was ordered to take out the warrants by his supervisors. If this is correct, then these people need to be reviewed for their abilities. According to Miner's attorney, civil suits are being prepared to file against V. Your day is coming.

How long does the process take? V needs help. He still insists that he did what he was ordered to do. Well tell us the names of your supervisors who made you act like a fool and destroy the reputation of the NNPD. By doing so then the others will have to explain their conduct.

Atleast I, Jhonette THE VICTIM, have the gumption to post my name. It's hysterical that all of you hide behind screen names. PUNKS.....you can identify me as Gamble, Jernigan, whore, slut...pretty much anything other than my name. The fact still remains that all of "you" remanin anonymous. Why is that? Obviously you are afraid of legal ramifications. Why is that? If you are stating the facts, then why haven't you revealed your identity? It's pathetic little "helpless pups" that can't defend themselves. You have no ground to stand on other than to call me a whore, slut, tramp.....whatever. The fact still remains that Chris DID rape me, He DID cause bodily harm and will be held responsible for his actions.

Anybody who is coming to his side, and decides to continue to write or display anything online in his behalf or to my demise,, WILL be held responsible. You all take me for some , pardon the expression, but a dumb blonde.

Justice is coming.....including those of you who choose to be cowards...and hide behind the keyboard. You can't hide from technology.

Just so you are aware, there was an eight month investigation by internal affairs, that eventually lead to his termination. His termination WAS NOT dependent on a verdict. In fact, there were numerous co-workers that gave statements that were not flattering to Miner. Not to mention there were other women that came forward to give similiar testimony to Miner's actions, to be considered, "Unbecoming of an Officer."

Chief Fox DID NOT give Miner his job back. The City Manager's Officer did. What a dirtbag. After two seperate women, as well as two other , undisclosed women, gave testimony to his perverted and psychotic sexual habits, still gave him his job back. Now he has a gun, badge and....HANDCUFFS. GOOD JOB NEIL...(the city manager for NEWPORT nEWS.

Is it the new 1-in-4 statistic?

I don't mean the widely-circulated '1-in-4 women will be raped in their lifetime' but a statistic that suggests '1-in-4 accusations of rape are false.'

For a long time, I have been bothered by the elusiveness of figures on the prevalence of false accusations of sexual assault. The crime of 'bearing false witness' is rarely tracked or punished, and the context in which it is usually raised is highly politicized.

Politically correct feminists claim false rape accusations are rare and account for only 2 percent of all reports. Men's rights sites point to research that places the rate as high as 41 percent. These are wildly disparate figures that cannot be reconciled.

This week I stumbled over a passage in a 1996 study published by the U.S. Department of Justice: Convicted by Juries, Exonerated by Science: Case Studies in the Use of DNA Evidence to Establish Innocence After Trial.

You need to get help before your son is taken away from you. Your influence is having a negative impact on him and your conduct is making him ashamed that you are hungry for attention.

Gamble, the world is the victim because we have to look at you and listen to you. You are a joke and should leave town because you are the laughing stock of the community. We do feel sorry for your son for having to be around you. He is the one in your family who is the victim, not you.

I pick up strange men at bars and have sex with them, but that is my decision and for other people to be judgemental is wrong. My body is mine and no one has the right to tell me what to do with it. I do what I want but when I say stop, I mean stop.

So now i'm "Gamble J"......ha...If I do choose to pick up stange men at bars, in my spare time, lol, the rest of the above paragraph would most certainly be true.....NO ABSOLUTLY MEANS NO GUYS....But obviously the only people I need to address that to is Nick Tugwell, Christopher Miner and every other man that refuses to believe that when a woman says NO, regardless if sex starts consensually, NO MEANS NO.....so anybody who still carries pom poms for Christopher Miner,,,,,wow...i hope you don't find out the hard way that me and melissa are not his first victims.....there have been, are and will be countless others. Unfortunately, chris will continue his behavior because he believes there is no crime so long as the victim is manipulated into staying the night. His "brother" will continue to enable Chris to rape. Of course all of this is my personal and perhaps not so accurate opinion.(That was for legal purposes.)

As a conservative, my friens, or some of them, don't understand why I think most cops are corrupt. I have seen cops harass church groups, working people, fines for frivoulus things, etc. Also, I have seen a few at a fitness club I attend. They are like brainwashed robots, as yes, hypocrites.eom
