Duke lacrosse accuser holds press conference to defend herself
Raleigh News & Obstructor ^ | June 30, 2010 | Stanley B. Chambers Jr

Posted on 06/30/2010 9:26:14 AM PDT by NCDragon

With a motion bracelet strapped to her right ankle, Mangum, 31, held a press conference in front of a Savannah Avenue home this morning - where she is on house arrest - to defend herself against a February domestic violence arrest.

Mangum was arrested at her Lincoln Street home after police alleged that during an argument with her ex-boyfriend, she set the apartment on fire and tried to kill her now ex-boyfriend while her three young children and two Durham police officers were in the home.

“I don’t feel like I’m going to get the justice that I deserve through the judicial system and I feel this my only and last means to reach out to the public and let them know that I did not set a fire that night,” she said while sitting in front of Savannah Avenue residence, unable to even walk to the driveway. “To let the public know that I am being unfairly treated due to preconceived notions that people have about me concerning another case. I feel like enough is enough.”

She's right about that but not in the way she's thinking.

Isn’t she the one who was given a full scholarship by the NAACP after the Duke “incident”?

It must be a helluva thing to go through life with rocks in your head.

I really do pity this woman - but she seems to be crackers.

Maybe it’s mistakes. Maybe I tell men too much about my past and they try to take that for granted. Maybe domestic violence is more prevalent than people think.”

Maybe it's just you're a narcissist. Do you EVER take responsibility for your own actions... as Dr. Phil would say "You gotta own it".

Didn't she already have him as such once before?

"Boy" is a racist term. You will sign all your assets over to the NAACP and report to the camps immediately for re-education.

Oh, the best line from the article:

“I don’t feel like I’m going to get the justice that I deserve through the judicial system and I feel this my only and last means to reach out to the public and let them know that I did not set a fire that night,” she said while sitting in front of Savannah Avenue residence, unable to even walk to the driveway.

Honeychild, if you'd gotten the justice you deserve instead of Roy Cooper going soft on your psycho ass, you'd be sitting in state prison on charges of perjury right now instead of under house arrest holding a "press conference."

It was Jesse Jackson who gave her the full scholarship. If I remember correctly, her dream was to become a lawyer.

Full name was listed in the first paragraph (a one-liner), which did not appear in the posted synopsis. Thereafter only the last name was used. Standard AP style sheet rules.

I guarantee that the boyfriend in the video is not one of the many who left DNA in her that day before the Duke Lacrosse team party.

As on original Liestopper, I am well aware that one cannot believe what Crystal says. However, she did attend the university and she did attend a graduation ceremony, and she did walk up in a cap and gown to get a piece of paper...

So I’m inclined to believe somebody paid for something.
