They’re all working in THE DEPARTMENT OF FEIGNED RIGHTEOUS INDIGNATION.
Screw you Nancy Grace....
She isn’t responsible. She was victimized by another male. He deserved what he got. Move on.
BTW, why is this skank out of jail on her child endangerment and arson charges? Didn’t she get jail time for that?
You can't convince me that Cynthia McKinney never stuck a brotha. She was elected twice.
She's over qualified for that place.
Duke lacrosse accuser charged with assault

A Durham woman, known for falsely accusing three Duke University lacrosse players of rape in 2006, was arrested on assault charges Sunday.
Durham County jail officials said that Crystal Mangum was charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury. She is being held without bond.
Details of what led to her arrest were not immediately available.
Mangum was charged with attempted murder and arson in February 2010 after police said she assaulted her boyfriend in front of her children and lit some of his clothes on fire.
In January, a jury found her not guilty of the most serious charges but convicted her of three counts of child abuse, injury to personal property and resisting a public officer. She was sentenced to 88 days in jail, which she had already served while awaiting trial.
While a student at North Carolina Central University in March 2006, Mangum worked as a stripper and performed at a party hosted by members of the Duke lacrosse team. She claimed three white players trapped her inside a bathroom at 610 N. Buchanan Blvd. and raped and sexually assaulted her.
Mike Nifong, Durham County’s district attorney at the time, had the three players indicted on rape and other charges on the basis of Mangum’s allegations, but the case later began to crumble with her wavering in key details of her story.
That forced Nifong to dismiss the rape charges, and several months later, North Carolina Attorney General Roy Cooper dismissed the remaining charges, saying there was no credible evidence to support the charges.
Nifong was later disbarred for withholding DNA evidence from defense attorneys in the case.
Jesse called her a nubian queen at the height of her fraud. I guess a wife and girlfriend are not enough for Jesse. A little flattery and an offer to pay for her college education and he could get lucky.
Has nobama appointed her a Czar of something or other as yet? It probably won’t be long.
didn’t Jesse Jackson and the Nation of islame get money for her college tuition? Why does she need to rob? is it because she’s a criminal??
How can this be? Young, hard working, college girl, just trying to support her kids. I wish they’d just leave this upstanding, tax paying, good mother alone...
Maybe she’ll escalate to shooting someone next, and then she’ll stay in jail...
Poor Crystal, so misunderstood. She didn’t mean to stab him in the torso, she was just showing off her new ginsu at 3 AM and he fell into it. Durham’s #1 poster girl, she would never do harm to anyone. /sarc
The problem is that one of those kids is going to get hurt. That’s probably what it would take.
The freakin’ TCBEM savage needs to be put in a private cage at the zoo. Charge admissions....all revenue generated goes towards those kids who were falsely accused by this witch.
Those Duke players were lucky in one sense thou. This criminal could of shived one them, or shot one of them with a .25 cal Raven. Lesson to be learned, do not invite the criminal class into your houses.
Yes, they could have been shot. And to be accurate, Crystal Mangum was not what they ordered for the party when they hired a stripper.
Did she do prison time yet? She really needs to spend some time OUT of polite society.
