Lies, Damned Lies and The Next Tawana Brawley

Duke Rape Accuser has an extensive criminal record and reportedly claimed to have been raped before under eerily similar circumstances

Crystal Gail Mangum was an "exotic dancer / stripper" who worked for Allure Escort Service & Teaser's Palace Strip Club and was hired to ostensibly "dance" at a Frat party. 

Discussions turned to "outcalls," [where women visit private homes, sometimes alone — and where the definition of service gets murky but is just window dressing for what everyone knows what was going on: prostitution.]. These "negotiations" turned sour and confrontational.  

Make no mistake: the Duke University students at the party brought this tempest  upon themselves.  The fact that hiring strippers is commonplace on any campus does not relieve them of their responsibility to adhere the university's code of conduct. They have no one else to blame but themselves.

That being said, three sacrificial lambs: Reade Seligmann, Collin Finnerty and David Evans had been falsely accused and subsequently vindicated and actually pronounced "innocent" by no one else less that the Attorney General.  The charges have been dropped

So just who was the accuser? Crystal Gale Mangum is a borderline psychotic with a lengthy rap sheet. In 2002, she stole a taxi from a man to whom she was giving a lap dance. A high speed chase then ensued, and when the deputy chasing her approached the stolen taxi on foot, she tried to run over him. She pleaded guilty to misdemeanor charges of larceny, speeding to elude arrest, assault on a government official and driving while impaired. She was sentenced to 3 weekends in detention.

In 2006 she concocted the story for reasons only knows and has cried rape before. A decade before accusing three Duke University lacrosse players of rape, a North Carolina woman claimed to have been sexually assaulted by a trio of men when she was a teenager. In 1996, she told police that three attackers had assaulted her several years earlier, when she was 14. The woman's first rape claim was recorded in August 1996 by police in Creedmoor, N.C., though none of the men she identified as her assailants were ever charged.

Check out her Rap Sheet

Ms. Mangum was arrested in June 2002 after she got drunk, stole a car at a strip club, and lead police on a reckless high-speed chase. This incident resulted in the following charges

She's nothing less that a modern-day Tawana Brawley.  She's being championed by Al Sharpton The Buffoon® and - surprise! - Jesse (I Spit In Your Food) Jackson and the Moronic Mumbler Malik Shabazz of the New New Black Panther Party.

Damn, she hits a 10 on the pathetic scale. All the stupid liberals I live by all say it is white rich priveldge versus a poor black woman. What a crock. She is a liar and has been since day 1. She deserves to do jail time for lying and ruining these innocent men’s lives. Go Duke lax!

I would arrest anyone who would touch her...

Both a Danger to society and imbalanced, imo.
(Of course, I would arrest her and throw the key away.)

A lib will never admit that they might be wrong. Once the V-word ("Victim") is operative, that status can never be rescinded...

I wrote to one of the infamous Duke 88 - the nitwit, aging hippie-professors, who all rushed to judgment against the lacrosse players. I chose Wahneema Lubiano because she was one of the authors and ardent anti-players voices.

My email to her:

Professor:

The page on which the Gang of 88 Statement was originally posted seems to have disappeared:

http://www.duke.edu/web/africanameric

I presume this is because the accused have been exonerated and declared innocent, thus revealing the Statement to be a rash judgment at best and libelous fraud at worst.

Will you people be publishing a formal apology?

If so, could you kindly forward me the link to your apology?

Thank you.

Her response to me:

Hi,

Thanks for being in touch; have a nice day. :-)

WL

What's the matter, Professor? Cat got your tongue?

What a hypocritical phony!

They don't even have the intellectual honesty - let alone the guts - to admit that THEY WERE WRONG - and not only wrong: MALICIOUS. Idiots duped by their own particular brand of racism.

And they're teaching the young people of America.

And being paid LOTS OF MONEY to do so!

Are you accusing the atheletes of seeking to pay the stripper for sex? Do you have any evidence to back this up, or is Jesse Jackson paying your tuition too?

I'm struggling to picture exactly how might have taken place..... Unless at least one of the two of them was a contortionist.

“And being paid LOTS OF MONEY to do so!”

The Profs from Duke, along with many others, will more than likely be paying lots of money to the young men from Duke.

I believe the story was that the taxi driver was in the strip club where Mangum worked receiving a lap dance from her when she excused herself and (apparently dressed again) marched off to the parking lot and drove off with the taxi.

The driver and a security guard tried to stop her and, when they couldn’t, they called police which led to the high speed chase.

Later, when the cops had stopped the taxi at a place with no exit and began to leave the squad car to arrest her, she spun the car around and drove off, nearly running over one of the officers.

Hope that helps.

Sad how such a beautiful face can hide such a vile and despicable character who is capable of such lies and destroying not only the lives of several young mean, but the reputation of an entire town and all of Duke University.

And that Nifong scumbag...what a unbelievably wretched excuse for a human being.

Really, all of their lives and reputations completely destroyed. There needs to be a horrible penalty extracted upon the fiends who perpetuated this travesty of justice.

Something to strike fear right down to the bone of anyone who thinks to do the same in the future.

Ah... okay...

So she stole the taxi from a man “to whom she was giving a lap dance”, but not while she was actually giving the lap dance.

Much clearer now.

Interesting how the law will not press charges against her because of her “mental instability” shown by her previous record. I wonder if she is allowed to keep her kids and raise them since she is in such a state?

Stripper? Prostitute? I’m confused. The media described this sweet child as a ‘single mom, working various part-time jobs as she struggled her way through college’.

Re: Are you accusing the athletes of seeking to pay the stripper for sex? Do you have any evidence to back this up?

Here's a few indisputable facts of life:

1- "Escort Services" are nothing less than window dressing for prostitution.

2- Men who hire "strippers" routinely expect something beyond bumps and grinds and regularly solicit sexual favors.

3- There is ample documented evidence to correlate the nexus of escorts / strippers / prostitutes.

4- Prostitutes have been known to be conducting prostitution at these parties and have been subsequently arrested for these illegal activities

Are you implying that they hired her strictly to dance? Isn't this a display of naivite or possibly denial on your part?

This saga is about lies. Let's not perpetuate another. Connect the dots.

Re: "...or is Jesse Jackson paying your tuition too?"

I'm not sure that you read my entire posting. Toward the end, I made disparaging remarks about Jackson, Sharpton and Shabazz.

Therefore, I will clarify my position: I will never support anyone who spit in peoples food because they were of a different race.

Jesse Jackson is a charlatan. Al Sharpton is a hustler. Malik Shabazz is a moron. (True! It's doubtful that his IQ remotely approaches 80)

The atheletes, to a man, said they hired strippers to strip, period. These particular two strippers arrived at the jobsite, their appearance and demeanor were found wanting, and they were sent off unpaid. Again, this is the unanimous account of all who were there (aside from the strippers themselves). In this whole case there has been not one shred of evidence that the atheletes ever lied about what happened or refused to cooperate fully with investigators.

You are slandering these young men. You are stupid and immoral and harmful to our society to do so. No amount of your idiotic bluster will hide these plain, simple facts about you.

To be fair, none of these guys are stupid enough to admit publically that they were hiring a stripper to perform "extra services", if that was indeed their intention.

The real conflict was that they asked for white strippers, and two black strippers showed up. Why the "agency" sent strippers from the wrong race I haven't heard.

The young men aren’t to blame, even if they were in the wrong the punishment was way out of proportion to any “crime”. However, I agree with you that other young men who think about hiring a stripper in the future learn from this experience- strippers are mostly drug addicted con-artists, many of whom are also whores on the side. They are not to be trusted, especially in a private home.

I sent 6this email to one of these “professors” one Kim Curtis:

Schadenfreude. I never really appreciated the nuances of this word until I beheld the burgeoning fallout from this imbroiglio. I LOVE to see liberals like you hoisted on the petard of Political Correctness, racial identity politics, gender determinint feminism and what I have coined as “Tawana Brawley Syndrome”.

TBS exists when one takes a historical reality such as the marginalization of innocent blacks within a once overtly racist criminal justice syndrome or the past subjagation of women or any number of other offenses and attempts to apply that to a contemporary situation wherein the objective facts don’t apply; ala OJ Simpson, Rodney King, Anita Hill etc.

None of this would have happened to you if you had taken the time to sift thru the facts and objectively apply them rather than stuffing them into cliched dialectic “meta-narratives” of classist white male exploitation of an oppressed black woman with echoes of plantation sexual abuse.

Aside from the fact that petty tyrants like you have turned US college campuses into little ivy covered North Koreas, I suspect that you were seeking to appropriate PC bonus points and obtain instant moral authority by championing the cause of the “other” (marginalized black exotic dancer) against racist male chauvinist members of the privileged white elite. A case of cultural Marxist Class warfare that boomeranged. GOD how I love it so!!!!!

Even though I despise the racial identity politics that mindlessly multicultural cultural Marxists like you have fostered amongst my people to our ultimate detriment, I would like to state that I am a black man living in the heart of Chicago’s South Side ghetto, who values the rule of law and truth as best as it can be objectively and humanly determined.

It would be fitting if they get a pretty penny from you.
