SHARE Twitter reacts to Patrick Kane not being charged

Blackhawks star Patrick Kane will not face any charges after a three-month police investigation involving him and a woman turned up insufficient evidence to pursue, an Erie County (N.Y) district attorney announced on Thursday.

“The totality of the credible evidence … does not sufficiently substantiate the complainant’s allegation,” Erie County District Attorney Frank A. Sedita said in a news release. Sedita said the “so-called case” was “rife with reasonable doubt.”

While Sedita’s announcement signaled an end to the criminal aspect of the allegations against Kane, it reopened debate in social media.

Here’s how Twitter reacted to Thursday’s news:
