Moreover, Mr. Nifong is now the subject of ethics charges by the State Bar, and I think it is important to accord him something that was not given to these young men -- due process and a fair trial.
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.

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.

Nifong should be disbarred and prosecuted...and then, sued in civil court for everything he's worth!!!!!

Psychopaths like Nifong are a force of nature like bad weather. The occasional bear or lion who kills and eats a human is not being evil or anything like that, he's just being a bear or a lion; likewise, the Fong was just doing what psychopaths do. Fong did not TURN Durham NC into a seething pool of hate and bigotry, the demokkkrat party did that. The problem here is Durham NC, and not mike Nifong; Fong was merely serving as a catalyst. If Fong had not existed, some other catalyst would have arisen and the same story with minor changes in details would have played out a month or three months later. As KC Johnson notes in an article linked from FrontPage, "In Durham NC there is a robust constituency for the politics of revenge, and for prosecutorial misconduct." The basic reality is that Fong got together with black leaders and hit upon the deal of an election for a human sacrafice and then was elected with 95% of the black vote. THAT is the problem.
