The "Committee on Justice for Mike Nifong" was formed because of what I perceived to be the excessively harsh, injust, and disparate treatment he received from the North Carolina Attorney General (Roy Cooper), and the North Carolina State Bar. It seems that since its inception, Mr. Nifong is the only prosecutor to be disbarred. According to an article by UNC law professor Rich Rosen, no other prosecutor has even been severely disciplined by the State Bar. An organization which has no compunction about disbarring attorneys (according to its own web site, during a ten year period 373 attorneys were disbarred).
The "Committee" was formed without Mr. Nifong's knowledge or consent. It acts independently and without input from the Nifong family. After initiating my crusade for justice on his behalf, I had the honor of meeting this decent, dedicated, family man, and his lovely family.
Let me make it clear that Mr. Nifong does not intend on practicing law again, does not really want his license to practice law in the State of North Carolina reinstated, and did not encourage me to work towards getting it. In other words, he is not going to get on his knees and beg the state, or hop through any hoops for the state's perverse amusement.
I firmly believe that his license was taken from him selectively and unjustly by the state, and that the state should take responsibility for its actions (including its wrongdoings). That is why the state should reinstate Mr. Nifong's license to practice law. It should do the right thing and make amends to him.
