‘Nearly Choked to Death’==Two Versions

In the Brown University rape-charge scandal, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand has declared that the complaining student was “nearly choked to death.”

The male involved says the “choking” was minor and meant to be affectionate:

“Both (the female and male students, Lena Sclove and Daniel Kopin) acknowledge that Sclove had an intensely negative reaction when Kopin put his hand on her neck while they were kissing and touching each other in the street….According to Kopin, he (again) put his hand on her neck, in a “gentle manner,” while she was giving him oral sex–at which point she stopped and told him she did not want to be touched that way, and he apologized.
