Posted on 05/30/2006 7:51:21 PM PDT by JayHawk Phrenzie
A second exotic dancer who performed at a March 13 Duke University lacrosse team party where a woman says she was raped and assaulted by three athletes made an obscene gesture at a television camera during court proceedings on Tuesday.
When Kim Roberts noticed WRAL's camera in the courtroom, she made the gesture and then stuck out her tongue.

Wonder how that "obscene gesture" can be spun to her advantage.
'If the finger fits, you must aquits.'
Maybe she was just using sign language to drum up some business with the cameraman.
She sounds like an American princess. The kind you read about as a child....zzzzz
Duck University has a problem here. Duck figured prominently in Dnesh D'Sousa's list of formerly serious schools which had degenerated into PC factories, and it sounds like not really enjoying the evil fruits of the stuff right now.
There is a whole class of people who only "respect" the law when they can pervert it to serve their own purposes.
Any judge with an ounce of integrity would have had this woman arrested and held in contempt of court ... to use her as an example to others similarly tempted.
My reply to her would include the phrase.."and the horse you rode in on!"
Real class act and a felon too.
Roberts, 31, was in court for a probation hearing on a previous embezzlement charge.
She was arrested on March 22 -- eight days after the lacrosse party -- on a probation violation from a 2001 conviction for embezzling $25,000 from a photo-finishing company in Durham where she was a payroll specialist, according to court documents.
I am just not sure if that is the appropriate descriptor. I just don't think that term is inclusive enough. Sex industry worker is a quite modern term and seems to leave open all the possibilities. Of course, those of us who still look to the nineteenth century for reading material might favor harlot over the more common and cruder term whore or its variant 'ho. Whatever, exotic dancer seems to make her more than she is, and as this story proves she ain't much.
Im starting to think that the Duke University lacrosse team should not have hired the cheapest "entertainers" they could find. Probably to late for a refund.
'cruder term whore or its variant 'ho'
Men have the comfort of knowing that no matter how pretty a "babe" is, in a few short years she will not be able to rely on that for anything- not for money, power, nor quick satisfaction with a man she just met.
This lawsuit does not help to enhance the compensating qualities she will need to survive when that day inevitably arrives.
Duke can thank the great Stanley Fish (former head of their English Dept., and one of the leading lefty/deconstructionists in academe).
If the university had any sort of management, they'd be suing that lunatic prosecutor and the city of Durham into tommorrow-morrow land. in fact if I were the president of Duck university, my first act would be to call the mayor of Durham on the phone and tell him to put a stop to the BS immediately if he wanted the university to remain in Durham. Universities can be moved.
The school had no policy suggesting students hire whores or dancers off campus or on that I of.
that I know of.
That's pretty much irrelevant. The problem here is abuse of power by the one prosecutor.
Thing is, WRAL, has actually been quite supportive of Kim. They didn't reports LOTS of things about Kim (and Crystal). Just goes to show... "no good deed goes unpunished".
Which, for some reason, reminds me of the classic Parker gem: You can lead a horticulture but you can't make her think.
Is that related to making a hormone?
Is that true? Has he been arrested again, or are you referring to the incident a few weeks ago?
ping to story on Kim Roberts (aka 2nd ho)
Durham doesn't have a higher class of adult entertainers yet. They probably could have found something better on craigslists.
Thanks for the info. I think the only protection that innocent cab driver has from being persecuted for his honesty is for the whole country to be watching for Nifong and Durham authorities to persecute him.
I know I've heard worry expressed on FR that there would be some trumped up charge used to try to deport him. Based on what we've seen, I wouldn't doubt that Nifong and his local political machine (inc. the city manager) would try it if they thought they could get away with it.
Interesting...a part of the Fish tale that I did not know. Thanks.
The two cops sent to arrest the cabbie just by coincidence happened to be the two detectives investigating the rape case. (Who sends detectives--instead of street cops--to serve an expired warrant on a cabbie in a case that's already closed?)
That could be called intimidation of a witness, and is a felony for all involved (the detectives and whoever sent them).
Don't hold your breath waiting for 'justice' or the results of an 'internal investigation' in this. . .
Here you can read about the incestuous relationship between Mark Simeon (Kim's attorney) and Nifong.
They were blood enemies until just weeks before this election.
Simeon banking on a large civil setttlment (he represents Kim and he is the go-between for Crystal's family and Willie Gary, and he has advised Crystal's family on aspects of this case), makes a deal with Nifong. Nifong acts like Kim, just of the Lam, is not a flight risk and gives her a sweet deal on bond/bail and Kim ostensibly agrees to cooperate with Nifong and be a state's witness. Mark Simeon then agrees to speak to the black community where Nifong was not popular before this case. Simeon touts Nifong as a great DA candidate and a good guy to black groups in the critical day or two before the election.
Simeon has gone from a bitter enemy of Nifong to one of his biggest supporters in a very short time frame. Kim has gone from being a wanted fugitive from the state to being the Darling of the DA with a sweet deal hand delivered by Nifong.
This article has some info pertaining to Simeon and Nifong and their back room deals:
I call it DURHAM JUSTICE
How long will it be before it's Judge Nifong and DA Simeon?
That is right. Nifong may have other positions in mind too.
But this case has nothing to do with Justice, nothing at all.
Personal advancement and personal enrichment is more like it.
I just heard some people interviewed in Durham on this case on the Radio.
Looks like they are focusing on the CIVIL case. Victoria Petersen was on the Radio and she said she's talked to lawyers in Durham and she's talked to the AV Family.
She said that the one of the people on the lease of the house was EVANS, she intimated that Evan's parents name was on the lease. She said that a 22 year old old invited the strippers and served alcohol to underage men in this same house. Mrs. Petersen said that the Evan's Mother - a lobbyist in Washington is going to be held financially responsible for the events that happened in that house that night. She mentioned the lower standard in the Civil court and she said the Washington Lawyer Father (that she connected to George Bush's White House) will have to pay for the actions of his son.
Again, she claimed to have spoken with many lawyers and were assured that the AV has a super strong case in civil court. Then she mentioned Duke's liability. She said Duke owned the house and had protected the unlawful players and looked the other way for years, allowing this to happen.
She said Duke would be a defendant in the Civil lawsuit also.
So, you can see where this case is going. The AV, and the black lawyers in her entourage are looking to get super Rich from this case. The Race angle will be used to exploit the jury and move the damages into the ionosphere.
Noticeably absent was the discussion of the CRIMINAL case: by the Durham women speaking.
Absolutely disgusting! Shakedown.
Will you please copy your post to the other active thread.
Oh man, this is not good news.
I do hope his parents' names are not on that lease. It's an obvious shakedown in any case, but it's easier to wall it off if they are not involved.
Easy to see what the true target is now (David Evans parents' $$$$)
"How can I best spin this to my advantage?"
I have a feeling that no matter what the amount, and no matter what her new clothes and hairstyle try to say, she will come across as she is.
Of course, all bets are off if we have an OJ Jury.
Yep, those fine up-standing young ladies really do represent their college and community well. They come with rap-sheets, illigitimate kids, drugs, liquor and vulgar language and strip for college boys...role models for the young 'uns growing up in Durham.
If anything, the horse rode HER in.
