I feel very confident that we know what happened. I am also confident that there are certain people who will never believe the facts of this case because it does not fit their view of the case or their personal agendas.
The media played a pivotal role in these cases, both in leading the "charge" against the players, and then in the re-evaluation of the cases in light of the objective evidence.
I want Nifong's head on a platter. Period. While the accuser "dances" for me. OK, skip the "dancer".
This to be followed by anyone else in media or politics that stayed on the bandwagon.
In the words of a mother of one of accused players, "Mr.Nifong, you f****d with the wrong family".
And what is the realistic time frame for the rest of it? The new prosecutors will need some time to get in on the case, before appearing with it in court. How long could this take? After that one could hope for the thing to be dropped or to unravel quickly, within maybe a month or two. And what is the timeframe for nifong being cut down to size?
Nifong and the leftist agenda in this case has completely ruined Duke and Durham's reputation. There is no getting it back. If you are from Durham, for the rest of your life, you are from the home of the Duke rape trial. Thank Nifong crooked agenda and DemocRAT politics for that.
The sad thing is that the only reason these three boys were able to fight the charges is that their families could afford it.
How many working class and poor people has Nifong sent to prison without justification, to fatten his conviction record?
Nifong should be disbarred and prosecuted...and then, sued in civil court for everything he's worth!!!!!
That dancer needs to pay as highly as Nufong.
BOTH have intentionally planned and plotted to ruin the lives of innocent young men.
100 % dittos. Incorporate the 88 members of the Duke faculty lynch mob. Each should pay and pay hard.
This was obscene. Anyone who knowingly participated should be held responsible, commensurate to their knowledge/participation.
And how many cases will have to be re-opened hbecause of this? Between those expenses and the damages awarded in the likely civil suits, North Carolina could be in big financial trouble.
Any defense lawyer worth his salt who had a case prosecuted by Nifong is going to be filing an extraordinary motion for new trial.
This case shows that no one is safe from being convicted on bogus charges in our justice system, especially if the defendant is white and/or male...the only reason these three students aren't going to prison for 20-plus years is the attention the case got plus the ability of their families to hire good lawyers. Nifong could have gotten away with this.
"Both the homely dancer and Nifong need to suffer the ultimate CRIMINAL penalty: death by lethal injection."
What an idiot.
I don't know exactly what an "extraordinary motion" is, but it wouldn't surprise me if these attorneys in these other cases had all their new fees paid by the state. And I hate lawyers as much as the next guy (hell, as much as the next three guys!), but it wouldn't be unreasonable based on the jeopardy, nay, peril, in which Nifong has placed the state.
And the moral of the story is don't invite/hire scheming whores to one of your parties.
While many of us agree with you, the odds are that he isn't worth two dead flies.
Of course, I once knew a guy who did that, and his wife ran off with somebody to California with all his stuff! (served him right - he was trying to avoid paying a richly deserved civil judgment. He was a used car dealer.)
