We need the truth about Patrick Kane

Apparently Patrick Kane and the woman who accuses him of raping her are in "settlement negotiations," and we may never know the truth.

I agree with this article: such a thing would be simply unacceptable. If Kane is innocent of the charges- and I hope he is- then we have a right to know that. And if he's guilty, he belongs in prison and should never play in the NHL again.

The guy is a role model. More than that, rape is simply and radically unacceptable, and needs to be treated as nothing less.

Not only for Kane's sake, but because anything less would be obscene, if he's innocent we need to know it- and if he's guilty, he should not be allowed to have any further claim on our admiration, affection or allegience.

Period. End of story.
