This blog is being created to encourage thought and discussion about the justice system in the state of North Carolina, which is, unfortunately, one of "selective justice based on Class and Color." Former Durham District Attorney Mike Nifong was, and is, a victim of this system because he followed the principle of "equal justice for all" when prosecuting the Duke Lacrosse Case. North Carolina Attorney General Roy Cooper and the North Carolina State Bar unjustly, harshly, and excessively prosecuted and persecuted him to set an example for other prosecutors -- that in the state of North Carolina, Class and Color matter.
The State Bar has boasted in the past that it had revoked the law license of 373 attorneys during a ten year period. However, since its inception, only one prosecutor has been disbarred, and that is Mr. Nifong. This despite the fact that other prosecutors have acted far more egregiously, and their defendants (against whom charges were later dropped) suffered greater injustice.
If "equal justice for all" is to be a reality in North Carolina, it needs to begin with Mr. Mike Nifong. Justice for Mike Nifong would include, but not be limited to, the re-instatement of his license to practice law in the state of North Carolina.
