...She says that for most of them it is the first time in their life that they can walk the streets. Back in South Africa, a young woman can never go out alone. I don't mean that people tell young women that it is a bad idea to be out alone (as you would here), I mean they never actually are allowed to.

South Africa is a large, diverse place. I don't doubt what you say is true in some places, but it's nowhere near the case for many areas.
harry, as usual virtually nothing in your post has anything resembling facts. But while noplace is "paradise" (except the US of the "good ole days" that exists only in your mind), South Africa is actually a pretty great place, and it's certainly better than it was not too long ago. (Keep your persecution complex, though. It's good stuff)

I am thinking that maybe, just maybe, they held off because Lara requested it - or because they wanted to give her time to personally inform her family. US rape laws really do not give the names of rape victims to the press - and the press cannot, legally, without consent of the victim, tell the story using the victim's name.
As to the reported shouts of "Jew" from the crowd - we'll probably never agree on the truth/non-truth of the matter unless there are video or audio tapes or Lara, herself, confirms or denies the fact. I think it is equally likely that A) Harry is right and it is a giant cover-up on the part of media or B) It is a giant lie being perpetrated by FOXNews and The New York Post.
Everything I've read which even mentions the "Jew" shouting specifies that it is unconfirmed and has come from The NY Post story and suggests that the reader get independent verification - or it does not mention it at all. Personally, I find it hard to believe that all of the other media sources, ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, CNN etc., would let the story go if it were verifiable. Ditto for all of the other major newspapers.
I'm willing to wait a few days and see if it is confirmed or refuted before deciding what really happened.
Well it's not hard to imagine that she might have requested it and if so it had to be a factor in their decision but it's equally not hard to imagine that the "feel good" nature of the story was just as important and was also a factor. But as you say this needs more time because both "sides' could very easily be approaching the treatment of this story with their particular agendas in mind and that's why we're being fed what we're being fed
The American democrat media and American Liberal Loons for some strange reason support these rioters, I don't understand it, I thought the left wing fawned and supported dictators, why did they hate Egypts dictator.
If rioters took over Cuba and sent Castro packing would our Democrat Media support them, how about kicking Chavez out would Mush Mouth Matthews drool over that.
Strange bunch the American Loons.
