I'm just saying, most confessions will come from poor/stupid people. Rich people know not to talk to detectives, even if they are innocent (which seems to be the case with Duke LAX). If it had been a rich, preppy groups of black athletes, they probably would have acted the same way as the rich, preppy Duke athletes. However, you don't see that many rich, preppy all-black sports teams.
Speaking from experience, because I deal with criminal law on a daily basis at a bail bonding company. And the individuals that we bond out of jail get great attorneys without having to be preppy or rich (shocking, i know ). Actually a couple months ago there was a well know black athlete accused of raping a white girl (consensual but she was underage, she was charged with something also). He was represented by one of the top lawyers in the area.
Many times athelets are treated like royalty-especially if they are the "star" of the team which was this guy's story. And people want to help them get off, whether it be for the right reasons or not.
