Why the re-instatement of Mike Nifong’s license to practice law is important to North Carolina justice.

The past month I have been hard at work on the “Super-Duper Cooper” comic strip’s Episode III, which I have just completed. The genre of the comic strip, I believe, is a very important and effective vehicle for which to present issues and cases of North Carolina justice to the public. Therefore, I put a lot of effort into producing them, and consequently it is very time consuming. Episode III will be posted on the “justice4nifong.com” web site beginning the first Sunday in May, with Parts 2 through 4 being posted on subsequent Sundays in May.

While taking a break before beginning work on Episode IV, I will now try to update the web site and publish a few more blogs.

I would like to thank all of the individuals who have taken time to make comments to the blog, as I value all opinions, even those which are not in agreement with ours. Recently we received a comment from “Justice 58” who felt that the blog site should be devoted to going after all prosecutors who have committed misconduct rather than just focusing on restoring Mike Nifong’s license to practice law. This is not an uncommon sentiment, but there are many salient reasons why we chose reinstating Mike Nifong’s law license as our primary and sole goal. Restoring Mr. Nifong’s law license is: (1) practical, (2) symbolic, (3) it is a just cause, and (4) it is achievable.

PRACTICALITY
Although the Committee on Justice for Mike Nifong believes that other prosecutors are guilty of far more egregious behavior than what Mr. Nifong is alleged to have committed, the State Bar and the attorney general of North Carolina have made it perfectly clear that they will not punish, or sanction, or disbar a prosecutor who abides by the state’s tenet of selective justice based on Class and Color. We have made attempts to see that justice is done by filing complaints with the State Bar against prosecutors Jim Hardin and Freda Black (for withholding exculpatory evidence from defense attorneys in the Michael Peterson case), as well as defense attorney Johnny Gaskins (who violated attorney-client privilege against his former client James Arthur Johnson). There are many prosecutors (Michael Parker, Bill Wolfe, David Hoke, Debra Graves, Ken Honeycutt, and others) who have committed prosecutorial misconduct that has been responsible for winning convictions against innocent people, but the State Bar and Attorney General Roy Cooper have made it clear that they lack the will to investigate or discipline them. Therefore, it is impractical for our Committee to pursue a course of trying to see that they are punished to a degree similar to what Mr. Nifong faced.

SYMBOLICALLY
Like it or not, Mike Nifong has come to represent “prosecutorial misconduct” not only in the state of North Carolina, but throughout the country. This reputation was conferred upon him because of the unjust treatment he received (including being the only prosecutor ever to be disbarred by the NC State Bar since its inception), as well as the uneven and unfair coverage of the Duke Lacrosse case and its aftermath by the biased media. As ridiculous as it seems, North Carolina is subsequently cast as taking responsibility for severely disciplining its prosecutors who do not act as “ministers of justice.” Nothing could actually be further from the truth, for Mr. Nifong was acting well within the standards practiced by other prosecutors in the state, while others, who spat in the face of justice and soiled their robes as ministers of justice, received a pass by the State Bar. Therefore, it is extremely important that Mike Nifong be reinstated in order to tear down the myths of: (1) Mr. Nifong being representative of the worst example of prosecutorial misconduct in history, and (2) North Carolina holding its prosecutors to the highest standards by strictly enforcing disciplinary action against those prosecutors who engage in misconduct.

A JUST CAUSE
The case for reinstating Mr. Nifong’s license is justified and well documented. The state of North Carolina subjected Mr. Nifong to extreme and excessive persecution and prosecution for his actions in the Duke Lacrosse case… actions which were far less egregious than those by other prosecutors. Other prosecutors have withheld crucial exculpatory evidence (including the existence of a murder weapon) from the defense attorneys, destroyed material evidence requested by defense attorneys, manufactured false confessions, enlisted “eyewitnesses” to testify who they knew to be fraudulent, and conspired to assault and bring false charges against an inmate. Attorney General Roy Cooper did not merely overlook these abominable actions, but went to extreme lengths to defend them. Meanwhile, the biased media has defined, for the mindless multitude, Mr. Nifong as being the singularly most vile and despicable prosecutor to ever serve the state of North Carolina. Mr. Nifong’s alleged misconduct: withholding extraneous, irrelevant information about unidentified DNA from defense attorneys – information which was of no value to the Duke defendants. Furthermore, the injustice suffered by defendants of other prosecutors was far more severe (including years wrongfully incarcerated, some on death row) than any injustice Mr. Nifong’s defendants may have endured (they served no time in jail, received seven million dollars each from Duke University, and were proclaimed “innocent” by the attorney general).

ATTAINABILITY
The goal of the Committee on Justice for Mike Nifong is to persuade the North Carolina State Bar to unilaterally and unconditionally reinstate Mr. Nifong’s license to practice law in the state of North Carolina without restrictions. That is a goal which is well defined, supported by justice, and within reach. What is ultimately taking place is a battle between the combined power and wealth of the state of North Carolina and the wealthy and privileged families of the Duke Lacrosse defendants, versus justice, which is steadfastly embedded in Mike Nifong’s camp. The state hopes to prevail by using their overwhelming wealth and power to wear down the forces of justice, not by arguing the merits of their position. That is because the state’s position with regards to the disbarment of Mr. Nifong is without merit. The Committee on Justice for Mike Nifong is committed to presenting its argument that Mr. Nifong’s law license should be reinstated, and it will pursue that goal until it is finally achieved. Getting there is possible, but it is not going to be easy.


IN CONCLUSION
The Committee on Justice for Mike Nifong is aware that prosecutorial misconduct was prevalent in the past, exists now, and will continue to exist into the future despite efforts to curb it. Symbolically, Mr. Nifong has been saddled by the state and biased media with being the sole cause of the Tar Heel state’s prosecutorial problems of misconduct and injustice. The gross injustice and mistreatment that Mr. Nifong and his family have sustained can best be rectified by the reinstatement of his law license… a goal that is going to be difficult for us to reach, but is definitely within our grasp.

Victoria/Sydney,

This Justice58 didnot contact you about devoting this blog in going after all prosecutors who have committed misconduct rather than just focusing on restoring Mike Nifong’s license to practice law.

I support without a doubt what you are doing for Mike Nifong. I also thank you for posting the info on the blog otherwise I wouldn't have known about the slimy piece of garbage impersonating me.


I just sent an email to you noting that and what to look for whenever you receive an email from me.


I wish you much success in helping to get Mike Nifong's license restored. He has a great friend in you.



Good Luck!

LOL that would never be something Justice 58 would have sent to the powers that be.

I remember a comment similar to that on the Liestopper's board posted by Lodge Pro aka Tony Soprano. Looks like he's doing a little stalking on this blog now.

There is one certain way Mike Nifong
can clear his name with regards to
the travesty of the lacrosse rape scandal.

Mr. Nifong, you should write a book.

History shall establish your honesty
and integrity, but history could use
a little help.

Your words, not outside agitators
and dishonest Harvard Phd's.

And remember Mike, it is not only
you and Ms. Mangum whom have
been wrongfully damaged...but all
the good citizens of Durham
and Duke University.

I agree. Mr. Nifong should write a book. I've been hoping all along he would someday do so.

Woo Hoo, Crystal! Keep getting your story out. Be afraid of no one.

ChickyGirl said...

Good for Crystal. Maybe she will be bringing up the truth of what really happened to her and Mr. Nifong. Let's hope so. Let's get the truth out there.

The NC Bar, the media, the defense, and Cooper stopped her day in court. They made the DA the fall guy. The real prosecutordial misconduct was Cooper's. He was the one who silenced her.

There is a very large and dangerous political influence in Durham.

The real "justice" for the defendants was money, connections, and the media.

ChickyGirl said...

Liestopper's board is going even crazier over Cyrstal's speaking. Plans are made that any blog hooligans in the audience jump up and ask her the "hard" questions. LOL

How could such crazies, who think alike, come together in the same place and time? Over half were kicked out who had minds of their own. The perfect storm.

Here are best wishes for Ms. Mangum.

You have every right to speak and be heard.

Not silenced by those who defame you.

The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is a most appropriate forum. It is the school owned by the people of the State of North Carolina, of which you are a citizen. Unfettered by the Private Interests such as Duke.

The Mangums, Dukes and UNC go back quite a long ways in Tarheel history. That remains another untold story for another day.

Well isn't this interesting.

The CBS News show 60 Minutes
told the Lacrosse families their
stories would put a bullet in
Nifong's head and discredit Crystal,
according to Ed Clark, at the UNC forum.

So much for objective reporting.

And broadcast in October prior
to the Fall general election.

Some expensive outside interference.

BOOM ! BOOM ! BOOM !

Take that, Lady Tarheel Justice.

"Mike Nifong, make a note: as of now, on September 24, 2006, an inevitable hour of infamy finally will follow your undeserved and disgraceful fifteen minutes of fame and you will realize that your short-term political gain from your deplorable (political) decision to prosecute (and persecute) the Duke Three was NOT worth it.

Sure, you played the race card, it won you the Durham County, North Carolina District Attorney Democrat primary, and that would be tantamount to election if you are not exposed before Election Day 2006 as a shameless political hack whom Durham County's good people will not want back. Mr. Bradley, "60 Minutes"'s Ed, will leave you politically dead".

"On August 16, 2006, I announced what should be ecstatic news for supporters of the Duke Three (surely the ones who want the nightmare to end sooner rather than latter) in an article entitled "The '60 Minutes' season opener should close the Duke case."

You'll wish you had refused to play the race card and acted professionally instead of politically and objectively instead of objectionably."

"At the Friends of Duke University website (where the moderator flip flops on the suitability of criticism of defense strategy), the initial reaction to my announcement that "60 Minutes" was focusing on the Duke case was mostly suspicion."

How did Michael Gaynor have so much information about the 60 minute interview?

Justice58 said...

http://www.renewamerica.us/columns/gaynor/070115




"On Sunday, January 14, 2006, after a great football game that fortunately did not go into overtime, "60 Minutes" presented its much anticipated and very moving follow up to its original Duke case expose, with Leslie Stahl replacing the late Ed Bradley. Ms. Stahl interviewed the parents of Reade Seligmann, Collin Finnerty and David Evans (aka the Duke Three) as well as reported on the collapsing of the prosecution's case and the replacement of the prosecutor. Only oblivious or willfully blind viewers are still unaware that (1) the Hoax was horribly hurtful to people who had not deserved to be hurt and (2) an end should be put to the prosecution that has been a persecution as soon as possible. (When Ms. Stahl referred to Ms. Mangum as a stripper instead of an exotic dancer or an accuser or a victim or an alleged victim, it was apparent that the miserable case should be put out of its misery, for the sake of the real victims of the really victimizers.)"

In "The '60 Minutes' season opener should close the Duke case," posted on August 16, 2006, in which I announced the great news that "60 Minutes" was on the case that is a prosecutorial disgrace, to mixed reaction, I wrote:
"

"The current plan is for its thirty-ninth season to begin with a blockbuster expose on the Duke case."

"Mike Nifong, make a note: as of now, on September 24, 2006, an inevitable hour of infamy finally will follow your undeserved and disgraceful fifteen minutes of fame and you will realize that your short-term political gain from your deplorable (political) decision to prosecute (and persecute) the Duke Three was NOT worth it."

I watched Ed Bradley for many years and I've never seen him do such a one-sided interview as he did in the Duke Case.


Why did he do it? That interviewer was NOT the journalist I came to admire.

With regards to the CBS 60 Minutes use of a video clip purporting to show the lacrosse victim dancing shortly after the Buchanan Ave. debauchery, here is what Ms. Mangum writes in her first-hand account:

"I do feel I must address several allegations that have become accepted as fact and
truth relating to the weeks following the events on March 13. More than a few people
from the Platinum Pleasures Club were produced to say that I danced at the club later in
March 2006. Those allegations are not true. I never danced again at the club. I did
attend a CD-release party for a local act during that time frame, but I was only there
briefly. The alleged videotape of me dancing at the club was from several months before
the incident at 610 North Buchanan. There is evidence that the tape was analyzed and
verified something other than what some people wanted to believe.

One other compelling point I would like to air is that the bouncer at the club who
said I talked about making money from the Duke boys is telling an outright lie. At the
time I was supposed to have said that, four days after the party, I still had no idea who
the people were at the party. Moreover, the bouncer was facing drug charges and was
being represented by one of the attorneys on the lacrosse players' defense team." *

Let's review a few facts. Mike Nifong was found in contempt of court for not being truthful with the trial court. Specifically, Judge Smith said: "It's about the candor, accuracy and truthfulness in representations to the court, particularly in important matters where the liberties and rights to a fair trial of those accused of crime may be jeopardized by the absence of such honesty by counsel...."Mike Nifong was disbarred, after a fair hearing where he had every opportunity to confront and cross-examine the witnesses against him. At that hearing the Disciplinary Hearing Commission found that Nifong had intentionally and repeatedly lied and cheated as he prosecuted three former lacrosse players on false charges.

Of course good prosecutors across the state suffered as a result of Nifong's conduct. Let us not forget that Marcia Goodenow an Assistant District Attorney from Charlotte said: "information that defense lawyers can use to prove the innocence of their clients,is about the most important thing you possess. ... You have an obligation to turn it over right away."Mike Nifong himself said that after reviewing the Attorney General's report, "I agree with the attorney general's statement that there is no credible evidence that Mr. Seligmann, Mr. Finnerty or Mr. Evans committed any of the crimes for which they were indicted -- or any other crimes against Ms. Mangum -- during the party that occurred on March 13th and 14th, 2006,"Reinstating Nifong would be a gross miscarriage of justice.

Derek said...

I gather the argument being presented here on behalf of Nifong is that it's ok to murder if you can point to others who have murdered. Hey, it's commonplace. Ridiculous argument. Nifong got caught using slime tactics to lynch innocent victims in order to get re-elected. Sorry, Nifong, you got caught.

Justice4Jack said...

Nifong was a mere scapegoat for NUMEROUS CORRUPT, and SINISTER officials, ALL whom are GUILTY of ABUSES in office, breach of public trust, unethicalness, and a very long list of crimes to which should be under FEDERAL INVESTIGATION and is not done still?!
MANY crimes were committed that year, and every year since, that have been swept under the rug, and continues on like the sewage system it is!
The WORLD must acknowledge that "WE THE PEOPLE" are merely "WE THE SHEEPLE!"
To use Nifong, and the word "JUSTICE" in the same sentence is just another CALCULATED move in his warped little world!
As I told you from the inception of this site, which is a TRUE MOCKERY to society, and personally, as this troll of a life used MY username, JUSTICE4JACK for my BROTHER who was MURDERED in Durm the SAME year as this "HOAX" once again, for his own agenda!
Where is the focus of the REAL problems that plague Durm, and every other city like it?! Corrupt elected officials, gangs, weapons, drugs, prostitution, illegal immigrants, sex and organ trafficking, and an endless list, that is truly CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY, and is way past time to DEMAND CHANGE!
Citizens only trickle together for some local cause, but the NATIONAL public itself, are totally blind to these most wicked of realities! Looking away is like leaving cancer untreated, slowly eating you away till you are robbed of life!
Our flag is made in China, along with another endless list of "goods," and our country sucked dry, to plunder our nation into another "Great Depression" only this one will be met with a "Police State" where Executive Orders have ALREADY been made into LAW, WITHOUT BEING VOTED FOR BY CITIZENS, THAT ALLOWS THE GOVERNMENT TO USURP US OF OUR EVERY FREEDOM?!
There are FAR bigger issues to address than the possibility of the Fong getting back his license to PRACTICE LAW!
There are MANY "FONGS" out here, and defending them only makes things worse, and DENIAL just makes you a fool!

Rhonda,

I'm not going to ridicule you because I understand you're hurting about your brother. I know what it is to lose someone you love. I've been there.

Mr. Nifong deserves his law license back because I believe he was treated unfairly by having it taken from him. So I stand in solidarity with this blog in helping to get his license restored.

Justice4Jack said...

How can you support this pole cat when he used the race card for his own agenda? Fong's concerns were, and have NEVER been about helping the black community!
Helping him get his license back is outright insane! There has been too much emphasis put on this one case, as I said, while MURDERS remains unsolved and IGNORED!
The DA's office is rife with corruption, the state is run by numerous dubious officials, and is NOT about JUSTICE, but about MONEY, POWER and CONTROL!
Durm is simply a typical, one of many "Good Old Boy" ran cities. There are such larger issues to address, and this is not the only "HOAX!"
As long as the public's interest remains on the LAX case, the easier it is for them to continue full steam ahead with the criminal activities they have been a part of for years!
Even the 3 were bought off and silenced, after accepting their "settlement!"
When our day comes before the court and world to expose Durm and the state of NC for their deliberate conspiracy to conceal my brother's murder, our voices will NOT be BOUGHT, but WILL be HEARD!

Rhonda,

Mr. Nifong had nothing to do with the investigation of your half brother's suicide. Since you haven't been seen for some time now, I thought you had finally accepted his death as a suicide. It was not a murder. Plain and simple. That case is closed and has been for years.

I also feel Mr. Nifong was treated unfairly and stand behind his getting his law license back.

Justice4Jack said...

Oh, but Nifong and Linwood Wolson DID have something to do with my brother's MURDER, and what they did was the beginning of the conspiracy to conceal his death as a suicide, when he was BEATEN and EXECUTED!
I have NEVER gone away, and our family will NEVER "accept" Durm's "findings" when there was NO INVESTIGATION until way after his death! I have the crime scene photographs, reports, and have DA Saacks, officer TJ Mellown, and Dr Butt's from the OCME, ALL of them on audiotape, obtained legally during our calls, and they are going to have HELL to pay for the lies and misinformation they have fed us these past 4 years! And I am telling this board, the Liestoppers board, and every other board that the TRUTH will be exposed, and is going to BLOW the lid off of the NC Judicial System for ALLOWING this LIE to continue!
To Hell with the LAX case, it has just been a smokescreen, and IMO, if the "players" & families of the accused were black or poor, they would be in prison now!
Why don't you invest some time in helping these people? NOBODY cares until there is MEDIA attention, then people come out of the woodwork like roaches to join the bandwagon!!
You people want proof? I am willing to show ONE picture from the OCME, and his report, and the one x-ray they sent me that shows his beaten torso with 5 fractures to his skull and 2 fractures to his upper chest, that were NOT mentioned on the ME report!
I have sent them to Kucinich, Voinovich, Sen Burr and several other agencies here in Ohio and in NC, and as much as they don't want to get involved, already are, and will shout from the rooftops until there is JUSTICE for JACK, and for ALL victims who have been abused twice, once by the individuals, then second by the "system!"
So, I will end saying Nifong is a POS, along with his past administration, the current administration, and the State of NC is in over it's head in BS!
My blogging has caught the attention of the "Hague" our own DOJ, the US Courts, and many other offices in Washington, and GLOBALLY who KNOWS I am telling the truth, and what was done to my brother is a "CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY" that WILL be TOLD, either by our courts, or by the European Court Of Human Rights!
Read my MySpace and my blogs there, especially the "Watchers" one, ALL of these were taken from the Liestoppers.com site, backed with IP addresses.
I also been very vocal about "June Tuning Croft" who was my brother's wife, and the fraud she has committed by making herself trustee of a revocable trust of his estate? And of her numerous lies on the police reports, court estate papers, and by hiding his wills, and with-holding the existence of the prenuptial agreement to the courts! THESE ARE ALL FACTS!
If these people are innocent, then why have they remained silent?! I have nothing to fear, but THEY DO!

ChickyGirl said...

Just4Jack,

Your half brother Jack separated himself from his mother (your mother) and stayed with his father's side (not your father).

The reason he did this was because of the nasty way you treated his wife.

You had barely seen him for years. You think he had a lot of money and you are pizzed it wasn't left to you and your mother.

Whatever he had, he left to his wife.

This man was not murdered, he committed suicide.

People have researched this for the past 3 years for you because you sounded legitimate when you started posting. I was one who fell for your crap and I found out soon how nutty you really are.

No matter what you do or how many posts you make, you will never get the money you think he had.

This is a blog about Mr Nifong and it is not all about you.

Justice4Jack said...

That is a LIE! You do NOT know our family, my brother did NOT kill himself, and his wife DID have him MURDERED!

And, just WHO are YOU?! YES Nifong is ALSO involved in his case, and as I said, STILL has to answer for his part in the cover-up!

If his "wife" was to inherit, then WHY has she lied on police AND court documents?! If SHE is innocent, then she could charge me with slander! And WHY HAS SHE NOT?!

My PURPOSE is NOT about MONEY, but JUSTICE! And I have EVERY right to blog here, as I said, Nifong was DA when he was murdered, but CORRUPTION, and The LAX farce, pushed this case, and many others under the rug!

You can say whatever you wish under your hidden name! I KNOW the TRUTH, THEY also KNOW the TRUTH, and I WILL NOT STOP UNTIL THERE IS A FEDERAL INVESTIGATION!

NOTHING LESS WILL DO!

My brother was MURDERED May 11, 2005, so, YES Nifong was DA on his case!

AND, as I said, he has YET to "FACE THE COURTS" for his "ROLE" in concealing Jack's HOMICIDE!

I am NOT here to "CONVINCE ANYBODY!" I am here to TELL THE WORLD OF THE "OTHER" CRIMES COMMITTED UNDER NIFONG'S TENURE!"

AND, is WHY I will NOT end my quest for JUSTICE!

If Nifong, or June Tuning-Croft have ANYTHING to say, LET THEM SPEAK OUT!

Their SILENCE speaks volumes! Now, why don't you go drop a house somewhere else, Durm already has more than it's share of "Wicked Witches!"

There was no Assistant DA assigned to Jack's case. It was a suicide. It is not a criminal matter.

Look, many people have tried to help you and failed.

Live on in your fantasy world. Good Luck.

Justice4Jack said...

Who are you, Cy, my brother's wife, or somebody in her family?!

Hmmm, you seem to have a morbid interest in seeing my brother's case not solved?!

I stand by the FACT that Jack was MURDERED, and frankly as for your opinions, I don't give a damn!

The case is solved. Your half brother committed suicide.

Leave his widow alone. You have caused her enough heartache.

Justice4Jack said...

NO, it is NOT solved, and she is and has BEVER been a grieving "widow," but instead A GREEDT, LYING, CON ARTIST, AND MURDERER!

The PROOF is THERE, and is WHY WE DEMAND A FEDERAL INVESTIGATION!

AND, IF SHE AND NIFONG DO NOT LIKE WHAT I AM SAYING, LET THEM TAKE LEGAL ACTION!

YOUR "OPINIONS" are MOOT, and only shows that "SOMEBODY" cannot handle the TRUTH, and taking pot shots at me are FUTILE!

So glad to know I have people who are "interested" in this case! Stay tuned, because ALL of this has just been a PRELUDE of what IS to follow!

This is the truth and you know it. Jack was your half brother and wasn't even in your lives for a very long time. He was close to his father's side of the family because they liked his wife and treated her well.

He committed suicide and the case is closed. Your mother and you were left out of his will. There is nothing you can do about that. Let him rest in peace.

Leave his widow alone.

This is not a forum for Jack or for you. This is a forum for Mr Nifong.

If I stop corresponding with you hopefully you will go away like you have done on other boards.

Get some help with your mental problems. You have been advised to do that for years on different boards.

Good bye

Justice4Jack said...

LoL, I am not going into family dynamics with you, but you are very incorrect in your little assessment of my family.

June HAS lied on court estate papers, has denied the existence of his wills, and with-held the prenuptial agreement!

She is not to INHERIT SQUAT! Why, and how did she make herself administrator of a revocable trust?! Who is the beneficiary?!
We have filed an "attorney discipline" document with the State Bar for the lawyer who helped her steal his body and home, her MO for his MURDER!

And as much as you try to make me look "crazy" your pathetic attempts are futile, I do not need a shrink, but need JUSTICE!

And YES, Nifong IS involved in the cover-up, and I have more rights than most of you to post here!

AND again, if THEY are "upset" too bad! Let THEM speak out, and take legal action, but they will NOT, because they know I am right, and just a matter of time before they are all behind bars for CONSPIRACY!

I have nothing to say to you whoever you are, but I am telling the WORLD, and cannot wait to see them in court, because as I said, we will NOT settle out of court!

AND will not stop my quest for JUSTICE, until there IS a FEDERAL INVESTIGATION!

May I also add that we are NOT fighting to get my "brother's money." That has NEVER been the issue or focus, what IS the focus of even mentioning his "wealth," is BECAUSE that was his WIFE'S MOTIVE!

SHE HAS COMMITTED FRAUD TO OBTAIN HIS BODY, AND ESTATE AND THE STATE KNOWS, AND HAS DONE NOTHING!

YES, we suspect she had him "MURDERED FOR HIRE" and she IS GUILTY OF FRAUD ON MULTIPLE COUNTS, and she has also LIED ON POLICE REPORTS, and to FRIENDS AND FAMILY, whom will TESTIFY to what she, and her FAMILY said as to what happened to my brother! Her sister took calls, and even told his friend from college he "shot himself accidentally while cleaning "his" gun."

And, that he HAD MS, well he DID NOT HAVE IT! He was NEVER diagnosed with it, and is a LIE she and her brother have been telling, as to explain his SUDDEN DEATH!

The EXCUSE of a "SUICIDE" is so UNFATHOMABLE, and I IMPLORE those of you reading this who knew my brother,and June to have enough COURAGE to speak out!

The police reports have NO mention of ANYTHING from either of their co-workers, and they did NO investigation, until AFTER he was already cremated! From the beginning, WE INSISTED for them to give us DOCUMENTS, (and the few we were sent during these past 4 years are MORE than enough to PROVE MURDER AND CONSPIRACY!) and we have been told a MOUNTAIN of lies! THREE of the biggest was that they had done a "PARTIAL AUTOPSY," when we requested a full one, but he had already been cremated, another about "THE GUN," which they told us WAS his, then several years later tell us it was NOT his gun, and would NOT tell us about the IBIS check, and another being that he was an "ORGAN DONOR," then tell us years later he was not?!

These are only a SAMPLE of the INCONSISTENCIES, and WHY WE DEMAND A FEDERAL INVESTIGATION!

I really cannot believe anyone would support Mike Nifong for anything other than picking up dog poop. I agree with Kevin. Mike does not deserve to ever practice law again, anywhere. He disgraced our city and county and made us laughingstocks of the world sports press! His sentence should have included many years in prison, but he still has political friends so he got off with 1 day. He needs to never come into NC ever again! And Crystal should be charged with the crimes she committed, especially the false police reports! They should capture all her book proceeds and give them to the real victims here!

renata said...

Nifong embodies everything wrong with the criminal justice system today. I hope he burns in hell.

Justice4Jack said...

Personally I could care less about what will happen to his "soul!" A LOT of people are going to burn in Hell, My GOAL is to see them EXPOSED, and CHARGED CRIMINALLY!

I just found this site and have read the case for allowing Mr. Nifong to practice law which I do support. I do, However, have some reservations. One of the reasons given for reinstatement is that other D.A.s or prosecutors have commited worse crimes than Mr. Nifong. Last month i recieved a ticket for running a red light. I could argue that the police would better serve the community catching murderers, but that does not mean i did not commit a crime nor does it excuse any punishment I may receive. Second, only a few people know what really happened regarding the case involving the Duke University students yet this site has person after person claiming they know exactly what happened. I can say that I have seen no police reports, interview transcripts, photos or any other form of evidence. Therefore I can not say that i know what happened. I am humble enough to admit that I have no idea what happened and smart enough to know not to take other people's word as truth without further evidence. Lastly, it seems to me that the system that Mr. Nifong once participated in is now the system he claims failed him. Admitedly no one is perfect which then begs the question " How many persons did Mr. Nifong wrongly accuse or convict"? If Mr. Nifong is correct in his assertion that he did nothing wrong then clearly the system does and continues to convict innocent people. Chance favors strongly that he is not the only one to be wrongly persecuted therefore it must have happened before and during the time he was in office. The system works or it doesn't work. It cannot work when Mr. Nifong was in office and then not work after he left office. You cant have it both ways.

I am not aware of any law that supports your position. As a badly damaged victim of a rogue prosecutor, I know that other more egregious misconduct goes unpunished but how does that justify reinstating Nifong's license?

Instead, your cause should be to have all of rogue prosecutors and other "officer of the court" liars disbarred and held in criminal contempt.

Supporting Nifong only serves to reinforce rampant corruption. The goal should be to clean up the courts, not to contaminate them again by reinstating a sociopath.

ChickyGirl said...

All criminals who are prosecuted claim they are innocent and the prosecutor or the police are after them.

It is rare indeed a criminal will admit their crimes.

Cheryl said...

To Chicky Girl: Consider that in most cases aren't aborted as happened with the Lacrosse players.

Instead they proceed to trial and with Nifong tactics innocent people are convicted. On point, are the many DNA exoneration cases and in most of those case Nifong type prosecutors advocated for keeping them in prison, knowing they are innocent. Had Nifong not been stopped by the intervention of the A.G. the Lacross players would have likely been convicted.

Other victims of rogue prosecutors aren't so fortunate. If you don't believe this see the film: "After Innocence"

Cheryl said...

Chicky Girl: Reading your posts, you must have a financial interest in supporting Nifong. Are you his wife? How can you support this dirt bag?

ChickyGirl said...

To Cheryl

You are a typical message board idiot.
I never came across anyone in jail that was guilty. LOL

Criminals use any excuse for their crimes. Any excuse but the truth.

Bad prosecutors and police are the biggest target of their excuses for being there.

If one is a good citizen and doesn't commit crimes, they don't have to worry about so called "rouge prosecutors and bad police officers".

ChickyGirl said...

To Cheryl

Are you one of the Dukies many groupies?

Anonymous said...

Seriously? Nifong should NEVER be allowed to practice law again. In fact, he should have served much more jail time than 1? night. justice4nifong should involve an extended stay, just because he didn't get away with it doesn't mean he's not guilty as hell.

Anonymous said...

Seriously? Shut up you stupid fool. You don't even know what you're talking about.

DISMISSED!!!!!

Anonymous said...

From the beginning when Nifong began making public statements about the guilt of the players I knew it was wrong, and was horrified that he kept doing it over and over. I agree that many prosecutors misuse the law and they should all be removed from office and disbarred. But what Nifong did cannot be excused or rationalized. I don't think he should ever practice law again and I hope he loses everything and has to start over. For his own sake he needs sooner or later to admit to himself how wrong what he did was. Let him get back on track in another field and try to do something useful for society to make up for what he put those innocent players through.

I was just served a burger at Burger King by Mike Nifong.

I believe I will have to report him to management as I saw him cleaning the shitter and not wash his hands before leaving.

As much as I despise Duke and Lacrosse I despise Duke Lacrossebplayers even more... But not even on the same radar as that pos Nifong.

Anonymous said...

It dumbfounds me that anyone would support Nifong at this stage of the game.

Many assert that media bias against Nifong harmed him... AYFKM?

The bias was then and continues to be against a bunch of kids who were innocent and whose innocence was readily apparent from the beginning.

Have college athletes raped? Sure.

Duke athletes? Perhaps.

Did these kids do anything worse than hire a drug addled stripper and then yell some epithets when she failed to perforem? Nope.

Mike Nifong should not only have lost his license, but should have been sentenced to the same time these kids faced.

As an proud black man, who is aware of the history of prosecutorial misconduct against my race, I am dumbfounded that we are not supporting Nifong's PUNISHMENT. If he would do this to a bunch of rich white kids.... what do you think he'd do to some boys from the other side of the tracks?!

By the way, Duke sucks anyway, go Heels!

ChickyGirl said...

I don't care if you're black or white, what was done to Mike Nyfong was un-American. A bunch of connections and money took a prosecutor down. Those men were never tried by a jury of their peers.
As far as I'm concerned, with that trial stopped, there is no resolution to their guilt or innocence. This certainly didn't set a precedence as prosecutors do worse than Nyfong and nothing is ever done. Maybe you should put your energy into that.
I would like to know how Mr Nyfong is doing with his life now. I'm betting whatever it is, he is much happier. I hope someday he will write a book.

Anonymous said...

Anybody who thinks Mike Nifong should be allowed to practice law again is an idiot! I was living there during the Duke Lacrosse case and it was a fiasco. Nifong and others, including the NY times, Black panthers, and prominent civil rights leaders all blamed the lacrosee players without a scintilla of evidence. Nifong failed to question witnesses, including the alleged victim, made incriminating statements in the press, witheld DNA evidence, and more. He did this because at first the public, the media, and other politicians were for him and he used this case as a vehicle to advance his political ambitions. Just because other lawyers haven't been disbarred for similar actions doesn't mean he shouldn't have. That's like saying just because one murdered went free of rkilling a peroson means the next murderer should also go free for a similar killing.

Anonymous said...

Sorry for the mistype at the end of my statement. It should have said that just because one murderer went free doesn't mean the other one should.

Tomj said...

whoever thinks Nifong is innocent is a brain dead idiot. This man committed so many crimes against those boys that I do not know how he can live with himself. I assume this site operator and its supporters are also the same people that declared the end of the world on May 22nd.. idiots...

Anonymous said...

Nyfong needs to be in jail as long as people he was trying to prosccute. He was let off WAY to easy. Putting imnnocent people in jail on purpose by someone with his power, needs be delt with in the harshest way possible,or our free society is at stake. Taking of one's freedom or life is the ultimate crime, and Mike Nyfong was trying to do just that for his own gain.

There are forgiveable sins and unforgiveable sins. Nifong is guilty of some of the most heinous sins a lawyer could commit. He is a poster child for the kind of person who should NEVER be allowed to practice law. The fact that there are other prosecutors who've done worse is like saying Scott Peterson (who killed his pregnant wife) should be let out of jail because there are other murderers who haven't been caught. Look at the harm he almost caused! But for some very good lawyers the boys would be in jail for most of their natural lives. There will never, ever, be enough good this guy could do to tilt the scales far enough to overcome the damage that he has done to the legal profession. May he rot in hell, along with the Duke faculty who were so quick to condemn.
