Actually, we here at FRee Republic recognized the endemic rot of the Durham “Justice System” 5 1/2 years ago - in the spring of 2006 - when the attempted lynching of Colin Finnerty, Reade Seligmann, and Dave Evans took place.
What’s amazing is that the malefactors were able to keep it so well hidden since then.
That was an astounding response by any group of people. I think the FREEPERS were the most perceptive and insightful of watchers defending the players. I sent an e-mail to their support site and informed them that I thought there was a lot of good ideas and support here. I’ve been suspicious of the system in Durham since then and it looks like not a whole lot changed. But the people get what they vote for I guess.
