October 19, 2012: This was a fairly widely reported story. A woman who reports her alleged raped promptly and the worse for wear has far more credibility than some airhead who claims she was raped by her boyfriend last year. When Heather Atkins told police in Columbia, South Carolina she had been raped, she certainly looked the part, but the black eye was not caused by the two men who kidnapped her off the street at gunpoint, one of whom raped her. They did not exist. She went home with a male co-worker, the manís girlfriend caught them together, and didnít like what she saw. Double whammy!

Heather Felicia Atkins looks like a credible rape victim, but this is her mugshot taken after she filed a false report.
