Skip to comments.In Crystal Mangum, Duke Rape Accuser, Leftist Tactics Come Home To Roost
Posted on 02/20/2010 9:16:59 AM PST by Left Blue NJ for Red SC
Crystal Gale Mangum, progressive heroine and the accuser in the infamous Duke Lacrosse Rape Case, is in the news once again:
Durham police arrested Mangum for attempted murder, arson, and identity theft after responding to a domestic disturbance call: Durham police arrested Duke lacrosse accuser Crystal Gale Mangum, 33, late Wednesday after she allegedly assaulted her boyfriend, set his clothes on fire in a bathtub and threatened to stab him.
Authorities charged her with attempted first-degree murder, five counts of arson, assault and battery, communicating threats, three counts of misdemeanor child abuse, injury to personal property, identity theft and resisting a public officer.
Mangum is the author of the memoir Last Dance for Grace. She was a student at North Carolina Central University in 2006 and also worked as an exotic dancer when she performed at the now infamous Duke lacrosse party.
It was there, she claimed, that three white members of the team trapped her inside a bathroom and raped and sexually assaulted her.
Thats right. The darling of the race-baiters, like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, class-baiters and Feminists is cuckoo pants and criminal herself. Allegedly. (Ill use allegedly; pity no one surrounding the Duke rape case hoax, including prosecutor Michael Nifong, gave the lacrosse players that same courtesy) We all knew she wasnt the angelic victim the Left portrayed her to be. But, whats worse, so did the Left.
You see, to the Left, the truth does not matter. What matters is their ultimate agenda and the narratives they have set in stone to further the same.

Whatever she did was bad enough.
I detect a bit of "swagger."
If we really wanted to stop dead-in-the-tracks things like the Duke Lacross false-accusations we’d have the penalty for lying under oath to get another party blamed have the penalty of what ever penalty would have applied to the innocents would be applied instead to the perjurer.
Ex: Suppose the Duke case had been about murder and the possible penalties were death or life-in-prison. Crystal would then, having falsely accused, have to either spend life in prison or be put to death.
Who was the idiot DA that treated this woman as though she was a victim?
There it is ... Nifong. (pffft)
Paging Je$$ie HiJack$0n and the un reverend Al $harpton, the NOW Hags/liars and the leftie Liar Mediots of the MSM, this poor picked on criminal needs your help again.
Of course this has to be Bush’s fault, still.
If she ever stuck her face to a pane of glass, she’d need the fire department to break the suction. Kinda like those “Garfield” thingeys you used to see on car windows.

New UCSD racial incident sparks rage, confrontation
Minority students at the University of California San Diego declared a racial state of emergency yesterday, presenting administrators with a list of 32 demands many of which the ...
Very smug looking, the woman has some real issues and shouldn’t be walking the streets much less raising 3 children. Poor kids.
To be fair (although that’s an overused word), one would have to make sure the penalty is only reversed when the accuser can be demonstrated to have willfully made up the allegation.
What I mean is this: In any case, a “not guilty” should not automatically equate to “false accusation”. In a case such as the Duke Lacrosse team, the unraveling of the story by the actual evidence - which was complete and unequivocal - should be used as the catalyst for pursuit of “false accusation” penalties. In a he-said/she-said case, where the evidence is ambiguous and conviction or acquittal rests on the perception of honesty of those testifying, the false accusation card should be out of play (and must be CLEARLY so).
Just my $.02.
She’s killed fewer people than dead Ted.
Wait a minute, maybe she is a Tea Bagger.....yes, thats the spin, its always the answer to any violence, use the tea thing.
3 guys falsely accused X 40yrs each (http://www.ncsu.edu/police/Information/NCLaw.html) = 120yrs for her ........ works for me
If true, I can see why they were upset. On the other hand, how many times have we seen something like this not be true or blown way out of proportion.
I detect being higher than a kite.
