A Thousand Words (Crystal Gail Mangum's pic from 3/16/06)
Durham-In-Wonderland ^ | March 24, 2007 | K. C. Johnson

Posted on 03/24/2007 12:07:26 PM PDT by abb

A Thousand Words Friday’s Herald-Sun contained an interview with the accuser’s father, Travis Mangum. According to reporter BriAnne Dopart,

He still believes wholeheartedly his daughter was brutally raped and assaulted on the night of March 13, 2006—he recalls in vivid detail his daughter’s swollen eyes and cut arms.

On several other occasions, Mangum has made such a claim, always mentioning the swollen eyes. Nor is he the only case-related figure to suggest that the accuser had readily detectable physical injuries. On March 16, when Sgt. Mark Gottlieb’s team conducted their first interview with the accuser, Officer R.A. Reid photographed the accuser. In his “straight-from-memory” report, Gottlieb wrote that “Reid stated [the accuser] had the onset of new bruises present.”

Below is a photograph of the accuser taken by Reid on March 16.

Other than what we know of her lifestyle, she looks pretty healthy to me.

"The victim stated she was hit, kicked, and strangled during the assault. "

Strangling would leave marks on the neck, even after 3 days. Her neck looks fine to me.

Which is the point of KC's story today. All we heard last year was how she'd had the crap beat out of her. Don't any bruises anywhere in that pic.

At last, a picture of the skanky ho, so everyone will know to cross to the other side of the street whenever she passes by.

Bullsquat!

This skank may have been raped, but it certainly wasn't by the folks she charged.... The skank had so many different semen samples on her clothing and in her body -- that it's hard to believe rape was necessary..

Her father's "vivid memory" sounds a whole lot like another lying bastard's "seared into my memory" remark.

This skank needs to serve some jail time for her false charges, false report and some time added on for being such a low life worthless bitch..

I'm all out of compassion for these pimples on the ass of society..

I did not know she had stolen a Taxi and tried to run down a cop. http://johnsville.blogspot.com/2006/04/duke-rape-accuser-crystal-gail-mangum.html The sheriff's deputy said he got out of his car and told the woman to turn off the car. She laughed, backed up the car, then drove forward again and nearly hit the deputy, the report said.

The state would STILL like to get convictions, rather than face the fallout from dismissal.

It's sad, but apparently in NC innocence may not be enough to get the charges dropped. ("Some cases are so important that innocence cannot be allowed to be a defense.")

But "light is the best disinfectant." Help keep the public spotlight focused squarely on Durham :

Does "Dad" ever say that NINE different semen samples makes it a pretty safe bet that his daughter is a prostitute? Does he believe that "wholeheartedly"? I sure do.
Not even one reporter anywhere will try that "college student" BS any longer, what does that tell you, "Dad"?

Well - the State of NC, the State BAR, Duke University, the lunatic feminists and morons on the faculty who signed the hate screed against the students, the city of Durham and every black racist who raced to Durham to "demand justice" had better pray that irate (rich) mother of a student doesn't single their asses out for CIVIL charges and end up owning their sorry asses...

I just LOVED the way that mother made her statement on live television... Words to the effect: "Mr. Nifong will regret for the rest of his life ---- wrongly pursueing my son"...

I'm in her corner....
Plus - that dumbass President of Duke already had a history of being a worthless dumbass bastard..

Duke parents really got screwed sending the fruit of their loins to this school -- which is obviously overloaded with the scum of the earth on its faculty and administration...

Looks like Gottlieb and Crystal's pop have been busted. Too bad the MSM won't run this picture in their paper.

An (apparently) updated profile page on Wikipedia for Crystal Gail Mangum. Mentions her picking Brad Ross out of the photo lineup with "100% certainty" not once but twice. Ross was of course with his girlfriend at North Carolina State University that evening. A fairly well-researched page:

From all reports that is pretty much what happened. The lovely ladies arrived, their appearance, demeanor, and professionalism were found wanting, and rather quickly they were sent off unpaid. This whole thing is an overblown contract dispute that could and should have been resolved on Judge Judy.

Certainly, you can ask. I've followed this hoax for a year now, as have many other Freepers. I saved photos in my profile for quick, and easy, reference.

By the way, the man wearing the red towel is Durham ADA C. Destine Couch, one of Nifong's assistants.

What a shock! No bruises, no hitting her eye on a sink, no swelling, she doesn't look like she lost a fight at all!

I'm shocked, I tell you!

Travis is a liar...

BTW, her eyes were brown when she was arrested and charged for her taxi joyride.
