The idiots on the Duke faculty and in the administration (especially Broadhead, who should have known better) bear a good part of the blame because they threw these kids under the bus without waiting to see how the evidence shook out.

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?

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.

The Gang of 88 among the Duke faculty is adamant in not backing down one bit, if you can believe the reports. For them the evidence never mattered anyway.

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.

Speaking of people being guilty of throwing the team under the bus, what has Nancy Grace had to say about the unraveling of the case? I've never heard her do a mea culpa and I'm wondering if it will ever happen.
