Reginald Daye has died after suffering stab wounds in Durham, North Carolina on April 3. His alleged assailant has been identified as Crystal Mangum.
Crystal Mangum is the woman who accused members of the Duke Lacrosse team of assaulting her sexually five years ago. KC Johnson began a blog called Durham-in-Wonderland in 2006 to follow this case and has done a superb job with it. A case narrative can be viewed here. The bottom line was that the three Duke Lacrosse team members were falsely accused.
Jesse Jackson flew to Mangum's side to defend her as the episode unfolded. Johnson notes that as the DNA test came back negative, Jackson had this to say:
Something happened on the night of March 13thsomething so compelling that Durham District Attorney Michael Nifong was prompted to say, This case is not going away. Indeed, he asserts that the lack of DNA evidence "doesn't mean nothing happened. It just means nothing was left behind." The District Attorney is putting the case before a grand jury.
Johnson then noted Jackson's "moral" certainties:
These facts, continued Jackson, are not in dispute.
* This was the first time [Crystal Mangum] had been hired to dance for a party.
* The one African American on the team wasnt there.
* We know that the two women were abused.
* What happened? We dont know for sure because the Duke players are maintaining a code of silence.
All were false.
Jackson promised that his Rainbow/PUSH organization would pay for Mangum's college tuition. As suspicions of a hoax grew, Jackson promised he'd pay for Mangum's tuition even if the incident was proven a hoax.
Mangum also enjoyed the support of NOW, the Black Panther Party and the notorious "Gang of 88."
The "Gang of 88":

If you’re going to blog about warmed over news, why not post the whole blog? Hiding something?
I think Crystal has now had as many serious encounters with law enforcement since the Duke Rape Hoax as she’d had before the Duke Rape Hoax.
The Gang of 88″:
88 members of Dukes arts and sciences faculty signed a document saying thank you to campus demonstrators who had distributed a wanted poster of the lacrosse players and publicly branded the players rapists.
No due process necessary. The Gang of 88″ was quite active early on.
Just when it seems like well see nothing worse emerge in this case, Cash Michaels has just posted an article asserting that he:
* was told by Karla Holloway, * who overheard a call to John Burness, * who was told by a Duke police officer, * who overheard a Durham Police Officer * say that a Mystery Witness told him or her . . .
that one of the lacrosse players used ugly racial epithets at the start of the party.
Some would call this sixth-hand slander.
Eventually the players were granted a reported eight figure settlement.
Then in 2010 Mangum was arrested for assault. She was accused of assaulting Milton Walker, setting his clothes on fire and threatening to stab him.
She served 88 days for child abuse. Mangum felt she was getting a bad rap:
I am being unfairly treated due to preconceived notions that people had about me concerning another case, Mangum said.
That would be the Duke Lacrosse affair.
Daye was apparently warned about Mangum:
A man who said he was Dayes nephew called 911 to report the stabbing, saying it occurred while Daye and his girlfriend were arguing about rent money. The caller said police came to the apartment complex earlier while the couple argued, but the stabbing occurred after the officers left.
When asked for a description of the girlfriend, the caller said, Its Crystal Mangum. THE Crystal Mangum.
He then added, I told him she was trouble from the beginning.
North Carolina State Attorney General Roy Cooper declined to prosecute Mangum in the Duke case.
You have to wonder what Reginald Daye thought of that. You also have to wonder when Jesse Jackson will have an announcement about his next scholarship.
Did any of the Duke players ever sue Jackson for deformation of character?
Yes, these con-groups of today qualify for tax dole money, that is what they are set out to be. As long as we the people allow them to do so, they will continue to be well funded.
I think we can safely say, billions of dollars have went into these pro-socialistic, pro-anything, but anti-USA groups, and they will continue until we are fed up enough to cut their
Another very well done blog on this mess that I’ve come across is LieStoppers:
Blog pimping, going for click-throughs.
With lips like that she could suck the chrome off a trailer hitch!
The dirty little secret in this and the Tawanna Brawley case is that on average white males rape black women about once every 2 years. Statistically, it doesn’t happen.
I had come across that before. As you say, it is almost a non-existent crime, and the incidents are so few that there aren’t even enough to compute a % along with the other rape stats.
Jesse probably hit it.
Dang white people - even our rapists be racists
