Two things: 1. Never EVER lay your drinks down. 2. GET A BLOOD TEST no matter how drunk!!

Who knows what happened but it is natural to wonder if someone is seeking their 15 minutes of fame when there are not conclusive results to show any drug adversion. People do not doubt her claim but to be inquisitive is good. What if we took everything people say and the media prints as 100% acurate - we would be in trouble. PS: No one is too sick to have a blood test at the hospital. That is the way they determine appropriate treatment for very sick people. I would also suggest that George Street is not a place to expect anything other than alcohol, drugs, fights and roudy behavior.

Well said Ms. Furlong. The "blame the victim mentality/attitude is nothing new. In years gone by the same mentality was prevalent in cases when women were victims or rape were said to have invited the rape because, for exaample, they dressed in a so-called provocative manner. It is much easier for us, as a society to blame the victim than to acknowlege that we, as a society have an obligation to do whatever we can to insure that people are protected from being victimized by predators of any description.
