I hope they hang this guy

I hope they kick the prosecutor in the Duke rape case as far as they can boot him. What a disgusting display of the mishandling of justice in order to get reelected, blatantly playing to the black community's worst fears, lying to the court, making everyone guilty without sufficient evidence and withholding evidence that worked against his allegations. Who the hell knows what really happened? What the evidence shows is that the three defendants weren't in on it if something did actually happen -- and what is abundantly clear is that the prosecutor fiddled and fixed the case to benefit his own reelection. Throw the book at him.

New ethics charges for Duke prosecutor

By AARON BEARD, Associated Press Writer 2 hours, 16 minutes ago

RALEIGH, N.C. - The state bar has added ethics charges to a complaint filed against the prosecutor who brought sexual assault charges against three Duke lacrosse players, accusing him of withholding DNA evidence and making misleading statements to the court.

The new charges by the North Carolina State Bar against Durham County District Attorney Mike Nifong were announced Wednesday and could lead to his removal from the state bar, according to a copy of the updated complaint.

Read the story.

There are two kinds of citizens: those who would rather convict an innocent man at the risk of letting the guilty go; and those who would rather let the guilty go at the risk of convicting an innocent man. I count myself among the latter. I am appalled at all the men on death row later proven innocent by DNA tests. I figure one of them could easily be myself. As for the three Duke lacrosse players, their lives are ruined forever. A google search of their names will always spit out that they are rapists. An overzealous prosecutor is a scumbag.

That felt good.
