As charged

Nifong is found guilty of ethics violations and disbarred. The New York Times reports. KC Johnson lists out each accusation and the monotonous results: guilty, guilty, guilty. Johnson remarks, the "justice system was able to right itself--but done with backup systems, in a way that was never designed to work as the justice system should work."

Backup systems. Would they have worked, one wonders, if the victims of Nifong's frame had been someone poor and uneducated like the person Nifong purported to defend? The university, the media and even their teachers left them for dead. But they had their parents. Maybe one day, when the family is abolished altogether as a regressive social evil, future people in a frame won't even have that. One commenter on KC Johnson's site said that the former DA's greatest mistake was to pick on people who had the educational and monetary resources to fight back. Maybe that's the backup system.

Nothing follows.

Wonderful comment Wretchard.

You sound more like my view of America than most of the people running for the office of the President.

Maybe that's it: Wretch for Pres!

Happy Father's day.

Guilty, guilty, guilty, as not charged, and as not likely to ever be charged.

"... the former DA's greatest mistake was to pick on people who had the educational and monetary resources to fight back."

I'm only in partial agreement with that. Bannon's careful examination was what uncovered the fact that DNA evidence was withheld, and theoretically any good, conscientious lawyer should do that.

Then again, I'm only in partial agreement. Even I have to admit that there are better defense lawyers out there than others.

So, digressing from topic: At what point will the witchhunt initiated by the Duke faculty and student "activitsts" be addressed? Why does the cynical side of me think that answer is "never"?

Nifong and the accuser should serve the maximum sentence that the lacrosse players could have had they been convicted - including the death penalty if it were allowed.

I agree with PeterBoston.

Disbarment is nothing but a slap on the wrist.

Having met Joe Cheshire, lead counsel for the lacrosse players, in the early '80s I can say I have not met better than him since...some as good, but none better.

Let me boys ask some "exotic dancers" to come over and perform various sexual expressions, while they drink and watch, adding from time to time comments and or requests. Trouble soon follows.

Educated sissies then use their professorial steps to shout out how racial, etc. the whole mess is. Black activists visit soon to add their special brand of poison.

And along comes a lawyer who is running for office as a DA. He is special, making just over 100 grand a year, a multi year civil servant in this arena. He sees the "golden horse" he needs to ride to victory as these wild and crazy boys who hire strippers!

Party time all around! News media is having a great time.

Few tell us from the media that Nifong is a Democrat running for office...I wonder why?

Nifong puts up a great arrogance. The boys he charges hire super rich lawyers due to mommies and daddies that are very successful.

Nifong goes to the NC Bar for his choices, more lawyers sit to decide his fate. He remains arrogant, although he does dress smarter on Saturday!

The perfect storm for lawyers. Not since OJ has the public has so much fun! Only problem is that Duke is nowhere to be found addressing these stripper issues. Nor are those stupid smart professors standing out front about their actions.

Why even the parents haven't talked about the strippers for they are too busy getting the oven ready for Nifong! Democrats haven't said a peep!

It's all about Diversity...just ask Rodney King! Do you think the Imans are watching this game and planning their next sermons explaining the infidel's world?

Anyone read a story on how those girls became "exotic dancers" or who those five or so other DNA providers feel about this problem?

Meanwhile, Paris rots in jail and a lot of lawyers in North Carolina are buying new suits. Old story.

Will Nifong see a shrink?

Lets call a spade a spade.

The Duke accusers were also prostitutes.

Nifong and the NC township still face:

1. Criminal miscoduct charges
2. Civil Suit

Duke University and the Gang of 88 still face:

1. Criminal Libel Charges
2. Criminal Civil Rights Charges
3. Civil Suit

The New York Times and other news outlets still face:

1. Criminal Libel charges
2. Civil Suit

It will take 5-7 years for this to work its way through the courts.

When this is done Duke may be a shell of itself.
