Pretty sick story we reported on back in July. A Vanderbilt football player, according to police allowed three of his teammates to rape his girlfriend while she was unconscious after a night of drinking and partying. All four were kicked off the team and now all four have been indicted by police. Safety Cory Batey, 19 of Nashville, Tenn.; defensive back Brandon Banks, 19, of Brandywine, Md.; receiver Jaborian “Tip” McKenzie, 19, of Woodville, Miss.; and tight end Brandon Vandenburg, 20, of Indio, Calif. also have been charged with two counts of aggravated sexual battery for an incident tipped to campus officials by surveillance video. Vandenburg also is charged with one count of tampering with evidence and one count of unlawful photography. According to Nashville police, the four men are charged with raping the unconscious woman inside Vandenburg’s room at Gillette House dormitory early on June 23. University officials checking the dorm’s surveillance in the hallways on an unrelated matter noticed the four’s behavior and notified the Vanderbilt University Police Department the night of June 25. Campus police contacted Nashville’s sex crimes unit June 26. If true, all four men should be thrown under the jail. Regardless of the condition of the woman, there is no excuse for using her body like a toy for your friends. That is disgusting and savage behavior that should be punished severely.
