When you stab somebody and they die its usually called murder.

As a certified heroine of the Okrah Winfrey Show, this wonderful African-American Woman who was tragically wronged by rich white men just as she was getting her life together, is statutorily unable to commit a crime. Pardon me: alleged crime.

A pity Nifong has been disbarred. He would be wonderful in her defense. It was obvious the dead guy was trying to rape her, so it was self defense. The important thing is to get the alleged perp's and the alleged victim's absentee ballots processed before (a) the arraignment, and (b) the funeral. NC be shaky for the Democrat Party right now.

The strange story of Crystal Mangum began long before Mike Nyfong got involved. Years earlier she claimed falsely that she was gang raped. No charges were filed. Later she stole a taxi, raced through two counties, and tried to run over a policeman. Again, she waltzed away from any punishment.

When she falsely accused the Duke Lacrosse players of raping her she was never brought to trial because the attorney general said she had too many mental problems.

Right after it became clear that she was lying about the charges the police chief of Durham totally disappeared. He was still on the payroll but never was at his job.

It makes one wonder - how did Crystal get away with all of her crimes and never get prosecuted? Is there some reason why she was untouchable? Is she related to the police chief?

What law office has hired Nifong? Surely, he isn’t working any ordinary job.

Every small town in America, regardless of demographic, has a Crystal Mangum. What happens is that at some time or another, the agendized ani of the Left, like Nifong, Epstein, et al, decide to try and use the Crystal Mangums of this and other towns for political advantage.

Thank God the intended victims in that intended frame-up were not helpless people, but instead were the sons of well-connected, intelligent, and obviously well-educated families, who were able ... at great personal cost, nonetheless ... to take Nifong and his cheap race-baiting cronies down.

BTW, the Duke men involved are not excused. They had been quite rowdy in the past and did not endear themselves to their neighbors. In a racially charged Left-wing town like Chapel Hill, THEY MADE THEMSELVES EASY MARKS FOR NIFONG AND EPSTEIN. BTW, Epstein had been "gunning" for these fellows for quite a while. I frankly suspect him of "a set-up," and I hope he's no longer on the CHPD.

Most of us smart people can figure that out. In the fantasy world of Obama and Holder, things are not always as they seem. Who knows, he might walk.

Crystal Mangum is mentally ill. She has a loving father and a family who tried to help her but she’s nuts. She should have been committed but the liberal rights do gooders have kept her out and on the streets. The race baiters used her as an icon which only exasperated the situation.I feel sorry for her and her family and they deserve our prayers.

Sounds like she has all the makings of an outstanding democrat congresswoman.

ABC will not, cannot and refuses to EVER say she lied.

The slanted Commie press is still trying to shield the blow for a murdering, lying skank stripper.

Amazing.

For comparison, how do they treat a mother of 5 who was a Governor of a state?

I don't know where he's working but probably not a law office. He's been disbarred. He can't re-apply for his law license until 2012.

Is the decedent white? It's presumptively attempted rape only if the accused is white and the accuser black. If the deceased if black, no such presumption.

The dead guy is African-American.

BTW, Both Nifong and Epstein knew of this woman's mental health history, previous criminal record, and her history of false complaints when they went after the Duke men.

In regard to the local and national MSM, they certainly cannot be expected to apologize for this when they still maintain that Alger Hiss and the Rosenbergs were innocent.

Where are Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton? I figured they would come out swinging for her like they did agains’t the Duke LaCrosse team. You know that guy she stabbed probably needed stabbing or something.

Crystal’s many victims deserve our prayers. Her family? They lied repeatedly to cover up her crimes. A decent family would have taken custody of her children rather than leaving them to be exposed to drugs, prostitution and who knows what else.

Are you aware that when they did the DNA analysis on Crystal they were able to identify more than 15 separate men she had been with in the prior three days? Of course they never released the identities of her many johns. According to her ‘driver’ she was doing tricks the afternoon of the Duke encounter.

My town didn’t have prostitution, drugs, crime or corruption on the scale that Durham seems to have. The police chief didn’t disappear for a year while still on the payroll. Our DA did play handball every day with the local Mafia boss but he was no Nifong.

on the scale that Durham seems to have.

Perhaps it was not as bad as RD, but it certainly did. It's just that the officials in your town of the functional 1950s knew how to maintain order, and the law. In that order. In fact, in the days before widespread drug use, if their "business" were not overly interfered with and stayed within agreed bounds, the Mafia could do both, and often did. Simple god-fearing folk need not even acknowledge that they existed, much less deal with them.

With drugs in the picture, and a 50%+ "minority" population, left-wing municipal governments, permissive Affirmative Action Law Enforcement Agencies, massive welfare benefits, 85% illegitimacy rates, collapsed and corrupt public schools, etc. many towns have neither law nor order. Betcha Raleigh-Durham has more murders in a month than your old Mafia hometown had in 10 years.

A 16-year old African-American boy in Florida gunned down two English tourists over the weekend. Less than a week before, he had been arrested for shooting out the tail lights of a rival gang member. And released. And released on a armed robbery charge. And released on a burglary charge. And released on drug charges.... And released ....

How long do you think that SOB Al Sharpton protegé ... and those SOB judges who let him go ... would have lasted in Steubenville, Ohio when Dean Martin lived there?

There are worse people such as former prosecutor Wendy Murphy (is she still commenting on Fox-I don’t have Cable anymore). @least Jesse Jackson said that he was relieved the Duke boys were cleared on Bill O’Reilly’s show after he learned of their innocence. But Wendy Murphy doesn’t care if men accused of rape are innocent as she proved this with the Duke case. Gloria Allred is another lawyer who doesn’t care if innocen men accused of rape & domestic violence are convicted. Yes, Crystal Gayle Mangum must be judged by the facts surrounding this murder. But she should’ve gone to prison before & should’ve gotten a long prison sentence after she was found guilty of child abuse.

Except if the perp is a woman, who may claim it was self-defense or an uncontrollable response to a pattern of abuse, or similar BS.
