COLUMBIA, Mo. — Just three days after being suspended indefinitely by Head Coach Gary Pinkel for breaking team rules, Missouri football wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham learned Thursday that he will not have to face charges for a possible assault, according to Columbia, Mo., police.

The report also says that Green-Beckham forced his way into an apartment occupied by two 18-year-old women early Sunday morning, with Green-Beckham pushing one down several stairs. After a police investigation, neither woman now says they want to press charges. According to the police report, it’s because they fear possible backlash from the media and the community.

    They may not be pressing charges because they either fabricated parts of the story or exaggerated other parts. If they were really assaulted, a strong woman wouldn’t allow a man to do that.

    Did you read the article, Joe? It very clearly stated thet these young ladies chose not to prosecute because they fear backlash from the media and community, a very real concern. They are 18, barely adults. They are quite likely afriad of exactly what you just did- demonize the victim. Shame on you
