Mainstream media’s big role in the conspiracy against Crystal Mangum

Word count: 1904

The truth will set Crystal Mangum free. That is a proposition of which I have been a proponent for some time. Durhamians and Tar Heelians would put a kibosh on the baseless and vendetta-driven criminal charges against Crystal Mangum (the Duke Lacrosse victim/accuser) if they only knew the truth about events of April 3, 2011, that were responsible for Mangum’s current entanglement with the law. But the masses are ignorant of the truth… in the dark, left standing amidst the shadows of a moonless night. The reason for the misguided opinions and sentiments surrounding this injustice is due to actions and inactions of the mainstream media… all acting in concert with one another and their fellow co-conspirators. Media’s main contribution to the conspiracy against Mangum is to keep the truth hidden… buried deep beneath diversions, misstatements, selective omissions, misinterpretations, and outright lies. Instead of acting as a torch of enlightenment in the Mangum case, it has been functioning as a shroud to strike the death knell for justice.

For the prosecution to be able to bring such bogus and baseless charges against Ms. Mangum, with a straight face, requires the devoted participation of four additional center-stage actors: (1) the medical examiner (to provide the fraudulent autopsy report upon which to base the prosecution); (2) extremely pliable turncoat defense attorneys (to look the other way, pull punches, and advise against Mangum’s best self-interests); (3) enablers (individuals and organizations [NAACP, ACLU, etc.] who are in a position to do or say something to positively impact the situation, but elect to remain silent… mostly out of fear, having learned their lessons from the persecution of former Durham District Attorney Mike Nifong); and (4) the mainstream media. Of the aforementioned four, the media is one of the crooked prosecution’s most valued allies because of the influence it has over the public… a public that for the most part places a great deal of trust in the media to provide honest and accurate reporting.

Although the mainstream media has been charged with being a public watchdog, to expose corruption in government and business that adversely affects the civilian citizens, when it comes to the Duke Lacrosse case or any of its participants, all bets are off. The driving force behind the remarkable unity of all media outlets stems from the fact that Rae Evans, mother of one of the Duke Lacrosse defendants, was an executive at CBS News for more than a decade. Afterward, she founded a highly successful Washington DC public relations firm of which she is president and CEO. In addition, her husband is an attorney in a prestigious DC law firm. As strong as her ties are to the other media outlets, there is no doubt that she possesses sway as to how stories are spun, and she has not kept her feelings hidden. During an interview with CBS’s “60 Minutes” show, Ms. Evans stated that she wanted Mr. Nifong to “pay every day for the rest of his life” (as retribution for his having the audacity to prosecute her son and the other lacrosse players). Defying journalistic codes of good standards, CBS never disclosed Ms. Evans’ ties to the station during any of its programs which featured its biased stories about the Duke Lacrosse case.

Another factor which drives the selective, skewed, and one-sided reporting of the Crystal Mangum case is the media’s desire to protect Duke University’s reputation and to mitigate the civil liability which Durham has self-inflicted upon itself with its unjust treatment of Mangum. The quandary at the root of the murder charge against Mangum is the fact that Reginald Daye’s death was not caused by the stab wound inflicted by Mangum. An unrelated botched intubation by Duke University Hospital staff, which resulted in brain death, led to Daye’s elective removal from life support… the proximate cause of his death. The media, through the prosecution’s charge against Mangum, has done its best to shift blame for Daye’s death from the Duke hospital, where it truly belongs, to Crystal Mangum.

Shortly after the stabbing of Reginald Daye by his live-in companion Mangum, the mainstream media flourished with articles about the stabbing, ABC-11 even falsely stating that Daye was repeatedly stabbed by Mangum. Lacking a lot of specifics, especially Mangum’s side of the story, the media devoted little attention to the incident itself, and focused much on the so-called “2010 arson” incident involving Mangum, and her role in the Duke Lacrosse case… never failing to misleadingly mention that the Duke Lacrosse defendants were declared “innocent.” Mangum was represented by media as emotionally unstable, mentally ill, and a perpetual prevaricator with a penchant for being physically violent with her boyfriends… none of which is true. On the other hand, the media hid from the public Reginald Daye’s criminal history (which included assault on a female), the fact that he was an alcoholic, and that he was highly intoxicated at the time of the incident. The media never bothered to mention that Mangum sustained physical injuries, including a swollen lower lip and a cut around her left eye. Nor did the media report findings at the scene of the incident which included clumps of Mangum’s hair, and a bathroom door that had been kicked in by Daye. In fact, the media, at all times, painted Mr. Daye in the most positive light.

As the media became more aware of the weaknesses in the prosecution’s case, its coverage of the case markedly diminished. On the third postoperative night, after Duke University Hospital staff intubated the esophagus rather than the trachea which resulted in Daye’s comatose state, the media went into a self-imposed news embargo on the subject. For a week, while Daye lay in a coma, the media kept the public in the dark as to the serious and significant turn of events in Daye’s medical condition. It was not until after Daye died a week later that the people were even informed about the fact that Daye had been in a weeklong coma. A suddenly apathetic media all of a sudden had no curiosity as to how Daye’s condition dramatically evolved from “expected to make a full recovery” to “irreversible brain-damaged induced coma.” Instead, the media placed the blame for Daye’s death on Mangum… never mentioning the botched intubation and, with the exception of only one media source, not mentioning that Daye was even on life support and that his elective removal from it preceded his death.

There was a flurry of media activity when the autopsy report was released to the public four months after it was written by Medical Examiner Clay Nichols. The media falsely proclaimed to the people that the stab wound inflicted by Mangum perforated “six” organs… the left lung, the diaphragm (not an organ, but a muscle), the left kidney, the stomach, the spleen, and the colon. As I revealed online in the operative report I procured from prosecution discovery, only the spleen and colon were damaged by the knife wound. In addition, other medical reports from prosecution discovery contradicted that Daye sustained any lesions to his left upper extremity which Dr. Nichols interpreted as being “defensive injuries.” Although the lack of credibility of the autopsy report by Nichols was brought to the attention of the mainstream media, they never attempted to question its accuracy or to set the record straight. Instead, the media chose to let their readers and viewers continue to believe that Daye’s death was due to the perforation of six organs by a single stab wound to the torso with a steak knife.

Specifically, I made contact with WRAL and its investigative team (including manager Randall Kerr), and ABC-11 at its downtown Raleigh studio, to enlighten them about the problems with the Daye autopsy report by Dr. Nichols. I even hand-delivered a letter to Jim Goodmon, the president and CEO of Capital Broadcasting Company which owns WRAL and FOX 50 among other media holdings. Per the usual response I have received from the media, I was ignored. As I was aware, the problem was not that the media did not know that what they reported regarding the autopsy report was incorrect and misleading, but that they did not want the general public to know. Such is still the case as the media continues to ignore the injustices in Mangum’s plight.

Another tactic utilized by the media is to not so subtly defile supporters of Mangum by presenting them as being lawless, unstable, and irresponsible. The headlines may blare that “Mangum supporter is being investigated by the State Bar,” but it is that which is underlying that story that is concealed. When approaching her one year anniversary of incarceration with no activity by her attorney of record, Mangum requested my assistance in drafting motions for her. I innocently drafted three motions based upon prosecution discovery that she sent me. She signed the motions and I filed them with the court. According to the State Bar, more than one journalist complained about me practicing law without a license… which propelled the Bar to investigate me. In order to conceal the identities of the journalists, the Bar itself assumed the role of the complainant in the action against me. Although the alleged wrongdoing against me was trivial and petty, the media, and the State Bar both made a mountain out of this tiny molehill. Diversion ruled the day, as the media brought attention to the alleged unauthorized practice of filing the motions (even questioning whether or not Mangum knowledge or consent for their filings), while disregarding the issues addressed by contents of the motions.

The selective and biased reporting by the media is not without severe consequences with respect to the administration of justice. Its role in the conspiracy against Mangum has helped keep a person innocent of committing a crime (and actually being a victim of crimes against her by Daye) incarcerated for 505 days as of today’s posting… and counting. The media is doing a disservice to Ms. Mangum, to Lady Justice, to the cause of “equal justice for all,” and to the public which reads its reports and views its broadcasts. In all fairness I do not fault reporters, news anchors, managers, and editors on the lower rungs of the media business, as the policies regarding how stories about Mangum are to be presented are determined by those at the top. Mr. Goodmon, as president and CEO is to be held accountable, rather than anchor David Crabtree, for example. Presidents and CEOs of ABC-11 and NBC-17 are guilty of failing in their duty to the public, as well. The media conspiracy in this Mangum criminal issue is long on fidelity and ubiquitous throughout the country.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t help persuade the mainstream media to do the right thing when enablers, such as politicians, retired judges, the governor, the Attorney General’s Office, civil rights leaders and organizations, including the North Carolina Coalition Against Domestic Violence, sit on their hands and allow their mouths to be muzzled. Only the Committee on Justice for Mike Nifong is speaking out against the injustice towards Crystal Mangum… and as would be expected, the media has gone out of its way to minimize the group and discredit it whenever possible.

The media’s handling of the Crystal Mangum case has been disgraceful, and its subscribers and the public at large deserve better. 

Is he so full of hate and racist poison that he simply cannot see beyond the end of his bigoted nose? Good lord. Now we have the entire media, the governor, the AG, the entire Durham legal system, the entire Durham LEO, all of Duke, the ME's entire staff, ANY attorney who does not dance on the end of Harr's puppet strings,the ACLUS, the NAACP, the LAX families and .....the Grand Dragonness herself, Mrs. Evans.....ALL holding secret tri-lateral meetings, somewhere on a secluded mountain top, figuring out how to screw over Mangum. Holy bat cape!!! I guess the only reason Harr has not included the President of the United States in the conspiracy net is because, uh, Obama is black. If a white person were in the oval office today, you can damn well bet that Harr would be telling us how the Prez wants to stick it to Mangum.
This is really sad and a huge waste of time.

As of today, Crystal is innocent because she has not been proven guilty)The falsely accused Lacrosse players were never convicted of anything, but you refuse to concede heir innocence).

However, there is no evidence that Reginald Daye ever assaulted Crystal.

More than anything, anything, Crystal's long incarceration is the consequence of SIDNEY and his gang making no effort to post bail for her.

I completely agree with and totally support what Rae Evans said concerning Nifong. Any responsible parent who KNEW (at the time she made that statement) exactly what Nifong had ALREADY DONE......would say exactly the same thing. Nifong's role in the REAL conspiracy to frame the LAX guys (when Nifong knew they were excluded as contributors to the sperm bank in and on Mangum) was ALREADY established. Harr has apparent dementia when it comes to remembering the true sequence of events. In any case, if my kid had been railroaded by Nifong and his cronies, you can damn well bet I would be happy to say the same thing. I don't blame Evans one bit and I doubt any other parent would, either.
To claim she had/has some kind of influence over the media is laughable. She worked for the network YEARS ago.....and has ZERO relationships there now. Zero.
As I recall the media, local and national (print, internet, TV and otherwise) were slobbering over the prospect of lynching the LAX guys! Nancy G. all but had a cow, thinking she had three villans already convicted. The NY Times demonstrated its true bias and had the boys headed to prison.
In short, Harr continues to run his mouth with the same old tired lied, the same old tired conspiracy nonsense.......and he continues, of course, to refuse to bail out Sister

No Sid, you were not ignored by the media. WRAL took your letter and had it reviewed by their own consultant physician and a couple of lawyers. They concluded your letter was bunk. That's different from ignoring you. This is a common theme amoung the Nifong/Crystal hangers on. They tell their story to the media and it doesn't check out, so the media drops their story. The hangers' on then cry that they are bing ignored. The truth is, your story isn't holding up to scruitiny.

Of course, when you claim that Crystal's left eye was gouged and the mug shot doesn't support that claim, you lose a lot of credibility. Whey you claim her lip was busted, and the mug shot and police report contradict that claim, you lose even more credibility. When you claim medical malpractice was the legal cause of death when I have cited the law to you countless times that says medical malpractice, even the discontinuance of potentially life saving treatment is not an intervening cause, you lose all credibility.

Sidney,

On the last thread, you claimed:

For you to contend that an inaccurate statement is the product of a lie Is false because a lie implies an intent to deceive.

I explained why I believe someone lied: Crystal was the indirect source; a claim that your "sources" innocently misunderstood her is implausible.

Because I may have presented incorrect statements that I believed to be true does not make them lies.

I did not accuse you of lying.

I suggested your sources were J4N colleagues who claimed to have received information from Crystal or whom you believed had received information from Crystal. You could not have described the sources as credible if they had not received information from her.

On what basis did you conclude that your sources were credible? How did you believe they received information?

Likewise, I do not believe my sources lied to me...they just gave me wrong information.

On what basis do you make this statement?

Did you ask your sources why Crystal subsequently contradicted their information?if you did not do so, you have no basis to claim they did not lie. You do not know their intent.

The statements I attribute to Crystal came directly from her.

I believe you.

and represent the definitive word on the subject.

In the past, Crystal has made false or contradictory statements. A number of her statements in the lacrosse case were shown to be false. She both admitted and denied setting fire to Walker's clothes.

Unlike others, I admit when my statements are factually in error.

You seldom admit errors raised by your readers.

My endeavor is to enlighten, not mislead.

I accept that you believe what you post. However, you are unwilling or unable to engage in meaningful debate and to process information that contradicts your beliefs.

You owe your readers an explanation. You provided information that you now call inaccurate. You vouched for sources you claimed were credible. Your readers were misinformed as a result of your mistakes.

How did you make this error? What have you learned to prevent a recurrence?

I looked at the mug shot of Mangum yet again and I re-read the officer notes. It is really sad that Harr, when confronted with obviously contradictory evidence that does not support his version of events, resorts to one of several repeated avoidance tactics. He (a)simply ignores questions or obvious evidence, or, (b)restates the same version with no explanation for how clear evidence fails to support his accounts, or, (c)attacks the source, i.e., he says officers are in on the "fix" and that's why their reports don't match his accounts. In other words, he attacks the credibility of more and more people.......ever widening his conspiracy circle. I feel sorry for the man in some ways. He is embarrassing himself. However, his intrusion into Mangum's case is not worthy of pity because his butting in has done nothing but hurt her. That's inexcusable.
Let's hope that her trial comes up soon, that all the evidence is presented and that a jury makes the decision. I would rather her go to trial than have a plea bargain because I really would like to know ALL the evidence, from both sides, as presented by competent qualified counsel. Harr , unforunately, will go right on intruding and whining.

Anonymous said...

You know what strikes me most of all about Harr's writings and his behavior.......it's the sadness I feel that he sees the entire world through the lens of racism and race-based hate. It colors his entire world view. I believe he has never accepted that Mangum lied and that NOTHING happened to her that night at the LAX party. He so very much wanted the story to be true, he wanted those boys to pay for raping Mangum.....and he just never could accept the truth. Period. No way. To this day, Harr is one of those people who just cannot face the reality that Mangum lied, that Nifong became corrupted by his own greed and desire to win an election, that the lab director and others were in on the "frame" to keep exculpatory evidence away from the defense and that those young men.....stupid though they were for drinking and hiring strippers......did NOT touch Mangum. Because of Harr's unwillingness to see and face the truth, he has to build more and more layers of conspiracy around his fantasy in order to hold it up. What a way to live....bound by hate.....and both unwilling and unable to face the truth.
Whether Mangum's story is true, the self defense business, should be determined in court. This time, for this apparent crime, she may finally be held to account. But, for now, she is innocent until she is proven guilty.

No, that is merely a statement of fact. Without exception, all media articles about Crystal Mangum mention about how the Duke Lacrosse defendants were declared innocent or exonerated. That observation by me does not constitute a vendetta or show outrage... just a keen awareness.

Reginald Daye's criminal record shows that he was charge with assault on a female. That is a fact. Whether or not the prosecution chose to dismiss the charge is irrelevant and has no bearing upon the credibility of the charge. The prosecutors may have dropped the charge because the witness may not have wanted to testify. Whatever the reason, fact is that Reginald Daye has a criminal history that includes assault on a female. If you do not like it, I suggest that you consider taking steps to have that charge expunged from his record.

I have no problem with the wording of the statements from the media. No problem at all. The men WERE and ARE INNOCENT. The statements are accurate. The AG and his team conducted an exhaustive investigation.........not a cursory lynching attempt at framing the LAX guys. Once again, it is obvious that Harr just simply cannot stand it that Mangum lied and that she did not get raped or anything else. It just galls him beyond words because he wanted so much to stick it to the white boys. Too bad....

Like the dismissal of the assault on a female charge, the timeline of when Ms. Evans made the televised statements in relation to any action by the State Bar is irrelevant. Fact is that she made them. It is what it is.

No, once again you wrongly state and interpret the record. The charge was dismissed/dropped and you AUTOMATICALLY assume Daye was guilty....you imply and assume the witness chose not to testify. Once again, assuming guilt. In THIS country, a person is innocent until proven guilty....a FACT you ignore. It is just as likely that the charge was dropped because there was no merit to the charge, no evidence, that the person who was supposed to have been assaulted lied about the charge, etc. Yet you automatically assume guilt because it fits your pre-determined racially blind bias. I would suggest you read the criminal record for Mangum. She has NINE CONVICTIONS, including violence against property, drunk driving, child abuse and so on. NINE CONVICTIONS. Document ONE single conviction that even remotely supports your lie that Daye was violent. You cannot because there were/are NONE. Liar.

Shame on you for playing the race card.

Facts, evidence, prosecutorial discovery, logic, deductive reasoning, common sense, and intelligence all support the grand conspiracy against Mangum involving the following players: Durham prosecutors, Orange County Medical Examiner, Mangum's defense attorneys, the mainstream media, and the enablers (which are those who are in position to do something about the injustice but elect, for whatever reason, to remain silent and idle). The latter group does include the governor, the attorney general, politicians in the General Assembly, and organizations such as the NAACP, ACLU, and the North Carolina Coalition Against Domestic Violence.

Walt, mon Ami, you put words in my mouth when you claim I said Mangum's lip was "busted." What I quoted from prosecution discovery was that she had a "swollen lower lip." I never used the word "busted."

Secondly, I never saw the mug shot of that particular arrest. I will not be able to comment on the related mug shot until she gets all of the prosecution discovery including photographs that her defense attorneys have been withholding from her.

Secondly, do you know for a fact that WRAL reviewed my letter with a consultant physician and attorneys, or are you just saying that? If so, I would like to have their names. Furthermore, I doubt whether you were privy to their conclusions about my letter. Regardless, they should have had the decency and professionalism to respond and explain to me what you allege they concluded... or do you believe it is appropriate for the media to ignore a letter of concern written in good faith?

I think it is absurd and another LIE that Harr says he has not seen the mug shot taken after the Daye killing. It is all over the internet, was in the news. It takes about three seconds to find it using Google, Sidney. You can even click it and enlarge it. Ever heard of Google? Once again Harr avoids and hides.....
The reports from the officers regarding Mangum's lip was that her lip, as reported by one officer, looked swollen.......and another officer said she had chapped lip. Not a single officer said she needed treatment for any injuries.......including no injury to her eye, no bruises, no marks on her neck that would indicate choking, no damage to her lip that would require treatment, etc. You have simply distorted the facts.

Anonymous said...

It is also quite obvious that Mangum and Daye could BOTH have had marks, scratches, and minor injuries .....that they sustained before their argument that night. As I look at my hands and arms, at this moment, I see a couple of scratches on one hand....from doing work on my car...and I have a bruise on my forearm from bumping into a doorframe. The presence of ANY injury or mark on a person is NOT sufficient to prove that somebody inflicted that injury or mark during an attack. If Mangum's story is true.....about an hour of being punched in the face, beaten, choked, thrown around, etc......there would be much clearer and easily seen marks and injuries. Serious choking attempts from a man the size of Daye would have left significant bruises on Mangum's neck. There were NONE

Hey Sidney, I just looked at the mug shot in question. Not ONE mark on Mangum. Nothing. How come your computer doesn't work?

Anonymous said...

I have said it before and I will say it again. Harr is blind to facts and to anything that does not fit his biased racist view of the world and those people in it that he hates. No amount of evidence, reality, facts, etc...will ever have the slightest impact on Harr. Mangum is an innocent victim of circumstance and a white vendetta. Nifong is an ethical man who got railroaded out of his job. The world is full of evil people (make that white people, or people of color who Harr thinks of race traitors) who are all essentially out to destroy Mangum. After years of reading his trash and watchimg his behavior, I am convinced the man is not capable of reasonable thought because his mind is just clouded by hate.

Sid, you are a source. Your faith, good, bad or otherwise is not the issue. All any media outlet is obligated to do is evaluate your information.

"During an interview with CBS’s “60 Minutes” show, Ms. Evans stated that she wanted Mr. Nifong to “pay every day for the rest of his life” (as retribution for his having the audacity to prosecute her son and the other lacrosse players)."

You got that wrong. You deliberately do not mention that DA NIFONG weongfully prosecuted the Lacrosse players. If DA NIFONG had been an ethical attorney, as you claim, he would have refused to prosecute any one based on Crystal's claim.

Unfortunately, he continued to wrongfully prosecute them. The rest is history.

And SIDNEY HARR is carrying on a vendetta because he believes the innocent Caucasian Lacrosse players should have been wrongfully convicted, simply because they were Caucasian Lacrosse players.

Anonymous said...

To repeat, ONE officer said her lip looked swollen but needed no treatment. A second officer said she had a chapped lip. If you look at Mangum in the numerous (three) mug shots that are readily available online, you will note that her lower lip has small bumps or slight enlargement on both sides........it is clearly visible. She has always had this type of lower lip. Anybody with a computer and a brain can see the mug shots and verify these tiny bumpy spots on both sides of her lower lip. If you look at the mug shot taken after the Daye killing, you will exactly the same type of lower lip on her. There is no visible mark anywhere near either eye.....much less any kind of injury of gouging or punching or scratching. She looks like she had a rough night.......no question....her eyes look puffy to me, as though she has been crying and/or drinking. Before Harr yells, I will say that my observation of how she looks is just my opinion. Unlike Harr, I do not make statements here that confuse my opinion with fact. I do not know whether she cried a single tear. She just looks rough and has puffy eyes that could be seen as from crying. Bottom line, there is not a single mark on her face that would suggest any beating. Harr knows this. He has seen the photo. He is just lying about it as an excuse not to respond.

Let's compare criminal records between Daye and Mangum, shall we, bro? Wanna see who has CONVICTIONS for violence related crimes? Wanna see who has drunk driving offenses? Wanna see who got their license suspended THREE times? Wanna see who vandalized property and was convicted of child abuse? Huh, bro?

Anonymous said...

Just to keep this FACT based, I read the EMS report and officer reports on Mangum after the Daye Killing. Here is what the reports said...
No treatment required.
Lip, minor swelling(one report)
Lip, chapped, no swelling noted
Head no abnormalities
Neck, no abnormalities
Face, minor abrasion, left eye
left hand, minor abrasion.
No treatment required
Patient DENIED neck and torso trauma. Patient DENIED trauma to hand.
"minor facial trauma best described as superficial to face" And THIS is supposed to be consistent with a "an hour of sheer terror" , beating, choking, punching, gouging an eye, being thrown about, being held down, scratched?
Harr, you are so far off base and full of it......

Sidney knows very well that the charge against Daye for assaulting a female was dropped. He takes the unique view that a person's criminal record includes all charges except for those in which a trial results in a not guilty verdict.

For that reason, in Sidney's opinion:

Crystal Mangum's criminal record includes the attempted murder of Milton Walker.

Anonymous said...

Sidney,

Have you completed your investigation of the report that Crystal Mangum admitted to setting Walker's clothes on fire, implicitly admitting that she lied when she denied doing so?

Are you ready to reevaluate Mani Dexter's defense strategy, which your have characterized as "featherweight?"

Are you ready to consider that you and your J4N gang may have seriously compromised Mangum's defense?

Remember that Mangum had admitted to setting the fire in her videotaped interrogation with the police. She may have repeated that admission to counsel. Counsel could have Mangum testify that she did not set the fire without suborning perjury. She and her counsel would plead self-defense, making the case he said, she said.

You and your gang organize a press conference in which Mangum denies setting the fire and contradicting what he has admitted on videotape and contradicting what she has told her counsel.

She may have repeated to counsel after the press conference that she did in fact set the fire, making it virtually impossible for her to testify.

Good job, Sidney. You blew whatever credibility she retained. And you have the gall to criticize counsel...

Counsel could NOT have Mangum testify that she did not set the fire without suborning perjury....

How about it, Sidney/ Gonna now tell us that we should view Daye's record one way and Mangum's, another? Or, are we going to hear all about how the entire North Carolina law enforcement community, since 2002, has conspired to lynch Mangum? Is that it? Were the LEOs involved in the incident, in 2002, also a part of the grand conspiracy, retrospectively? Did Mangum get her driver's license unjustly suspended three times by evil white people working for the DMV......well before 2002?

Excellent point to the poster who correctly noted the "charges" on Mangum's record. Gets my vote for the Fair Reporting Post of the Week.
As Walt has so often noted, Harr is selective in the issues and causes HE defines as unjust....and all of his "cases" eventually get twisted around to (a)himself, and (b)racial prejudice. Funny how that works, isn't it.

Harr is foolish and absolutely off-base to paint Mr. Daye as some kind of raging, woman beating, drunken wild man. There is not one shred of evidence to support this fable. I know Harr will, once again, tell us how Daye beat and choked Mangum (no evidence), how Daye pulled her hair out (no evidence), how Daye kicked down a door (no evidence that He did it, or when anybody did it, or how it got damaged......just reported to be broken), that Daye gouged Mangum's eye (no evidence), that Daye was a raging alcoholic (no evidence). AND I know that Harr will prattle on about poor Sister being the victim of some giant conspiracy led by Rae Evans. We have heard this trash countless times......and bro has yet to produce any evidence to support his paranoid conspiratorial plot.

It would be far more helpful to Mangum for Harr to do the following:'
1. butt out
2. start a fund raising effort to get her bail money
3. start a fund raising effort to buy an attorney that harr likes. (on second thought, that would definitely NOT help mangum)
4. start a public campaign to improve the state's performance for speedy trial
5. butt out.....of Mangum's "case"

I went back to look at a March article about Mangum after a bond hearing that month. In the article a comment was made (apparently by Shella) that the knfe that was supposedly used by Mangum to stab Daye had not been found.
I would like to know if the knife has been found....I thought it had been. anybody?
Another comment.....I believe I recall that Mangum violated a condition of a former bail status when she made direct contact with at least one of her children....I recall she was forbidden to do this and that, after this illegal contact occured, she was sanctioned by the court. Correct? Lance, Walt?

Hey, bro, do you think it's ok for a faculty member at Duke (who happens to be black) to send an email to the mother of one of the LAX guys, telling her she gave birth to a farm animal? What did Duke do to the faculty member to sanction/discipline him for this filthy remark? (answer: nothing) How does the lack of action/discipline by Duke against ANY of the 88 jibe with your notion that this same Duke is somehow out to screw Mangum? Seems to me Duke continues to kiss her backside with its ongoing silence around the behavior of the 88.
Kinda hard to see Duke not sucking up to Mangum......

It takes about three seconds to find it using Google, Sidney. You can even click it and enlarge it. Ever heard of Google? Once again Harr avoids and hides.....
The reports from the officers regarding Mangum's lip was that her lip, as reported by one officer, looked swollen.......and another officer said she had chapped lip. Not a single officer said she needed treatment for any injuries.......including no injury to her eye, no bruises, no marks on her neck that would indicate choking, no damage to her lip that would require treatment, etc. You have simply distorted the facts.

I don't make this stuff up. Reginald Daye's criminal record shows that he was charged with assault on a female.

Does Crystal's criminal record show that she was charged with attempted murder of Mr. Walker?

If you don't want Daye's record to show that he was charged with assault on a female, I would suggest that you take action to have it expunged from his record. Good luck.

Don't be a petty ass, Sidney. You know perfectly well the mugshot is there, and we all know you have seen it. Stop trying to fool people. It isn't working, pal. I would suggest to you that if you are going to treat dropped charges on Daye's record as a part of his criminal record, then, sir, you are obligated to do exactly the same with Mangum's record. and, yes, indeed, there is a felonious assault charge there, big as life. And now, we are all waiting for you to pretend that you don't have access to her criminal record because you go to the library. Pathetic, Sidney.

Anonymous said...

You are avoiding the point, Sidney. You cannot interpret Daye's record one way and Mangum's another. You know her record includes serious charges that were related to the Walker incident. I repeat....charges(S). Why are you lying now and acting as though you are ignorant of her record? The FACTS are that Reginald Daye was charged with assault on a female and that charge was dropped. Period. You do NOT know why it was dropped, so stop acting like you do. You also know that Mangum has multiple convictions on her record that include violence against property, child abuse, drunk/reckless driving, and theft. Stop pretending, sidney. The point here is that we all know how you distort, shade, interpret and twist information to suit your version of events. You have repeatedly stated information as though it were factual and the TRUTH......only later to be shown to be completely wrong. When you are confronted with the real FACTS, you lie, blame your "sources", act like you are being misunderstood and.....if all else fails.....you play your big religion "man from nazereth" card. It's getting really old, sidney......but we are all certain you will continue on as usual....because you are filled with and motivated by hate

Anonymous said...

I think Sidney is trying to build a case that because Daye had a previous assault charge (that was dropped)....that makes Mangum's claim of a violent beating and self defense legit. I would argue that the opposite it true.....the person with the true record of violent behavior that includes CONVICTIONS, as well as charges and prior threats of using a weapon to kill someone is NOT Daye.....it is Mangum. If the past is a predictor of future behavior, as Harr is implying about Daye.....then, of course, the past behavior of Mangum is also a predictor of her behavior. Ask yourself, Sidney........who, of the two, has the record of violence?

Sidney asks: Does Crystal's record show that she was charged with attempted murder of Mr. Walker?

As you know, Crystal was charged with attempted murder in that case. You discussed this charge in posts dated 2/23, 2/25, 2/27, 3/10, 3/28, 4/8, 4/11, 4/27, 5/3, 5/7, 5/16, 5/19, 6/1, 6/4, 6/13, 6/16, 7/1, 7/19, 7/29, 8/1, 8/3, 8/5, 8/11 and 8/14/2010.

You criticized the charge, claiming that the ADA overcharged Crystal in order to maximize bail and increase the pressure for Crystal to agree to a plea. Many of your readers agreed that Crystal appeared to have been overcharged.

Overcharging defendants and entering into plea bargains was something then DA Tracey Cline was known for. You, of course, found that Cline had no involvement with Crystal's case and was not at fault for the overcharges.

I have not retrieved a copy of Crystal's current record. Expungement of charges is rare when a defendant is found guilty on other charges.

I assume that your lapse of memory was quite innocent. You clearly did not remember the initial charges or any of the at least 24 posts in which you discussed the attempted murder charges.

You must have been a real fool of a physician if you believe someone can be severely beaten about the head and neck and not have findings.

Are you claiming now that Crystal had no evidence of a beating?

You could have viewed Crystal's mug shot a long time ago had you really wanted to.


Crystal was evaluated by EMS, and not seen in the ER. There is a difference.
I believe that photos taken after the beating by Daye will show injuries. That's why they've been kept from her by her attorneys. Be assured that once I get my hands on them I'll put them on the internet so that you can see the swollen lower lip, cut around her eye... and clumps of her hair.

Very interesting, Walt. Why do you think the consulting doctor does not want his/her name revealed? What is he/she trying to hide?

You see, Walt, I put my face and my name behind my statements... it shows that I am fully committed to them. An advocate cannot stand in the shadows of anonymity. However, it does take courage to put your name out behind an unpopular position.

The journalists who pressured the State Bar to investigate me for writing motions on Mangum's behalf lacked the courage to let their names be known. That's why the State Bar was forced to enter itself down as the Complainant.

The reason the doctor doesn't want his/her identity known is because he/she knows that everything I said regarding Daye's autopsy report is true. Plain and simple.

Sidney asks: Does Crystal's record show that she was charged with attempted murder of Mr. Walker?

As you know, Crystal was charged with attempted murder in that case. You discussed this charge in posts dated 2/23, 2/25, 2/27, 3/10, 3/28, 4/8, 4/11, 4/27, 5/3, 5/7, 5/16, 5/19, 6/1, 6/4, 6/13, 6/16, 7/1, 7/19, 7/29, 8/1, 8/3, 8/5, 8/11 and 8/14/2010.

You criticized the charge, claiming that the ADA overcharged Crystal in order to maximize bail and increase the pressure for Crystal to agree to a plea. Many of your readers agreed that Crystal appeared to have been overcharged.

Overcharging defendants and entering into plea bargains was something then DA Tracey Cline was known for. You, of course, found that Cline had no involvement with Crystal's case and was not at fault for the overcharges.

I have not retrieved a copy of Crystal's current record. Expungement of charges is rare when a defendant is found guilty on other charges.

I assume that your lapse of memory was quite innocent. You clearly did not remember the initial charges or any of the at least 24 posts in which you discussed the attempted murder charges.


When I look up Reginald Daye's criminal record, there is a charge listed on it that states, "Assault on a female."
When I look up Crystal Mangum's criminal record I do not see "attempted murder" with respect to the 2010 incident involving Milton Walker.

I rest my case.

For goodness sake, Sidney! Only abut 20 people in the world read your blog and actually believe what you say. If you want to get the charges dismissed you have to reach a much larger audience, and you can best do this by standing on a corner in Raleigh or Durham.

If you don't do something other than write your blog, I can only assume that you really don't care what happens to Crystal; you are only interested in using her to talk about the Carpetbagger Jihad. If she spends a long time in jail, that's just proof that Rae Evans is the most powerful woman in the world; if she's set free that just proves how powerful YOU are.

You should be ashamed of yourself, using this poor benighted woman in this way.

The mug shot was taken after her alleged beating by Daye. It shows nothing. That is why you avoid looking at it.

Keen awareness of what? Your are certainly not aware that there was no evidence that the crime alleged actually happened. When questioned about the lack of evidence, you duck.

Harr, you rattled on about the attempted murder charge in the Walker case.......over and over. Now you pretend you never heard of it. Comical.
You pretend to have not seen the mug shot taken after mr daye was killed. You have seen it and we all have too. Mangum looks rough, unkempt, perhaps has swollen eyes from crying, maybe hung over........who knows. But one thing is sure.......there is no evidence of this terrible beating you claim. In fact she DENIED trauma to her head and neck!

Indeed, as Eddie Murphy's character stated in Beverly Hills Cop, a Kung Fu fighter "bruises on the inside."

I am sure that Sidney will provide an explanation that will eliminate the need for changes to the stories.

"Very interesting, Walt. Why do you think the consulting doctor does not want his/her name revealed? What is he/she trying to hide?"

Nothing. The fact of the matter is, nothing in your claims about the autopsy confirm an independent cause of death. As you conveniently ignore the rule in North Carolina, the rest of the US and indeed common law countries around the world is that an intervening cause has to be the independent cause of death to break the original assailant's culpability. I have cited the NC case law to you many times. Yet you still ignore it. So, your letter just failed to offer any information that shows an intervening cause. Until you offer any information that shows an independent cause, you are really wasting time and effort. It's time wasters like you who convince the fair minded that Crystal has no claim. You've done that in full measure. With friends like you, she needs no enemies.

"Walt, why would the attempted murder charge not be included?"

I ran the quickie check that anyone can run at the court house, it's included. In fact, every arrest, regardless of final outcome, is included in your NC criminal record. One of the real problems facing people who are acquitted or just wildly over charged. If you have a Nexis subscription, you can pull up many newspaper articles recounting her sordid criminal history. Her auto theft, her assaulting a police officer, of course her participation in the frame of three not only innocent, but completely uninvolved people and her clothes buring rage. Stabbing some poor schmuck over a couple of money orders was sadly predictable. Her rage has gotten worse over the years. I had hope that she would get help after the fiasco, but her enablers like Sid and Nifong have just stood in the way and now Reginald Daye is dead.

If that is true, I see 3 alternative explanations:

1. Sidney received a copy of her record with errors. Sidney was so excited that he failed to ask reasonable questions.

2. Sidney is unspeakably incompetent. The charge was included, but Sidney failed to see it, despite the specific question being raised.

3. Sidney deliberately lied. He realized the charge was included, but he did not believe that any of his readers would actually check.

In order to demonstrate that he received a copy of the record with an error, he will have to post it. If he fails to do so, we can easily conclude that he is hiding something.

Walt,

Thank you for your research and comments.

I thought there could be different versions of a criminal record, with omissions and inaccuracies in some versions.

I was trying to give Sidney the benefit of the doubt, suggesting that the attempted murder charge could have been missing from the version he obtained.

In his haste to prove me wrong, he cited his version, not considering whether the omission made sense. After commenting on the attempted murder charge almost weekly over a six month period, he could not claim to have forgotten about it. It should have been included. Sidney may have some explanation for his failure to consider the obvious.

The onus is on Sidney to demonstrate he acted in good faith. His failure to acknowledge your discovery and his possible error is troubling. He has an obligation to post his version of Mangum's criminal record to demonstrate that the attempted murder charge was not included. He must identify his source. He should explain why he believed the charge was properly excluded from the record.

I will regard his failure to post his version as tantamount to an admission that the attempted murder charge was there and that he provided false information to his readers. As I noted before, a false statement is not necessarily evidence that Sidney is a liar. He may simply be incredibly incompetent. Despite looking specifically for it, he may simply have failed to notice that the attempted murder charge was in fact there.

Hey, Harr-Supporter, I am aware that for Mangum's arrest in the 2010 case that she was charged with attempted murder. As you pointed out, I repeatedly stated that online. My point is that that charge was made for the purpose of justifying a high bail, like many of the other charges. Truth is that she was never indicted for the charge and it is not on her record.

Police and prosecutors both know that the attempted murder charge was totally bogus, as she was unarmed and did not assault him. The police lack credible evidence that she attempted to murder him. With what... her fingernails? Do the police even put a weapon in her hands? No! That much is evident by examining the arrest report. So, no, she has no history of attempted murder of Walker on her record, however, Reginald Daye does have documented on his record that he assaulted a female.

Now I suggest that you and Walt, and the Intern get together and try to draw up some document to get the assault on a female charge expunged from his record... however, be careful not to inadvertently engage in the practice of law (I wouldn't want you to have to go before the State Bar).

The charges against Mangum should be dropped because they are baseless. First, she stabbed Daye in self-defense and it was a non-fatal wound. Secondly Daye died after being electively removed from life support due to brain death caused by a botched intubation for treatment of delirium tremens (a potentially serious complication in alcoholics). Thirdly, Crystal did not take money or cashier's checks from Daye... the only thing Mangum took from Daye was a beating. Daye gave the cashier's checks to her.

That, in a nutshell, is why charges against Mangum should be dismissed. For a refresher, here's a link just for you: Click here for Re-enlightenment.

Sidney: it [the attempted murder charge] is not on her record.

Walt indicated that his search included the charge on her record. You have provided no evidence to support your statements that the charge is not included in her record.

Your comment suggests that your earlier statement was deliberately false. You were merely expressing your opinion that the charge should not be included, but expressing it incorrectly as fact. The unfortunate rule is that all arrests--justified or not--are included.

The fact that she was not indicted for the charge is irrelevant as is your opinion (which incidentally I share) that she was overcharged with no credible evidence to support that charge in an attempt to increase her bail and put pressure on her to agree to a plea.

Your sarcastic comment that I work with Walt and Lance to get Daye's charge expunged is inappropriate. It is a straw man argument. I am not interested in expunging the charge. I seek only that you not apply a double standard. Crystal has some charges that are unfair. The same may be true of Daye.

If you fail to provide this evidence, your claim regarding this aspect of Daye's record is limited to a statement that his record includes a charge of assaulting a female. Otherwise, you have no information as to whether or not the charge had merit. Daye is innocent under the law.

With no information, your statement is uninformed opinion.

Did you check the truth of her story before you falsely accused a police officer?

I think not.

Sid: Just because charges against Reginald Daye for assault on a female were dismissed, it does not necessarily follow that it was baseless. The prosecutor may have dismissed the charge because the victim may have refused to testify out of fear and he may have realized a conviction was not possible. Get it... or is more elucidation required?

I want facts, not your uniformed opinion.

A note to one of the anonymous commenters:

You have suggested that the fact that the prosecution continues and the prosecutor refuses to dismiss the charges demonstrates that the charges are valid. You use this fact to "disprove" Sidney's contention that the charges are baseless.

I disagree.

As we learned in the Duke frame, the NC justice system provides few opportunities for defendants to ask the court to dismiss charges. The lacrosse case continued for more than a year despite "no credible evidence" to support charges. That baseless prosecution continued at Nifong's insistence, and the defense was powerless to require the court even to hear motions.

The NC justice system is not fair. The fact that the case continues in itself provides no evidence of the strength of the case.

If you wish to criticize Sidney's contention that it is baseless, I ask that you do so on the basis of the evidence available, Sidney's ignorance of the law and the lack of credibility retained by Crystal and Sidney.

You must have missed this earlier.

On July 29, you promised to post the letter from the Bar at your earliest convenience. When are you planning to do so?

You have had almost a month. did you lie to your readers when you made this promise earlier.

Sid: To my knowledge the ruling [the dismissal of the appeal of the Duke lawsuit] is a matter of public record, so why don't you post a link to it.

I have already read the ruling. Another poster posted a link to it on another thread.

I did not ask that you post the ruling. I asked that you post your filing. That is not publicly available except through a PACER account.

While I know you are busy in your attempt to have Crystal's charges dismissed, I do not accept that you have had no time over the past 3 weeks either to post your filings or to summarize your arguments.

Had you read my comment, what you would have read was "Did it ever occur to you that since the charges still stand in spite of your out-of-touc-with-reality ranting and raving, the charges are not baseless."

I did not say that it proved the charges were not baseless.

I was talking about SIDNEY's hypocriy, he persecutes a dead man over a criminal charge which was shown to be baseless but he says the charges against Crystal should be dismissed because he(SIDNEY) has ruled them baseless. This same SIDNEY has also ruled that the innocent Lacrosse players are no innocent.

Actually, he has no basis for judging the charges against Crystal are baseless. He bases his assessment on his belief in a lot of unsupported beliefs, such as his belief that the Rape charges were dismissed and DA NIFONG disbarred because of a vast carpet bagger conspiracy to protect the accused.

SIDNEY was blogging that Crystal did not set fire to Milton Walker's clothes, that the fire was set by a police officer as a pretext for charging Crystal with Arson. Crystal admitted to the police she had set the fire. She lied to SIDNEY when she told him she did not set the fire. SIDNEY took that lie and ran with it. Now he refuses to apologize to the police officer he accused.

It shows how incapable SIDNEY is of rational thought.

The evidence generated in the Lacrosse case showed none of the Lacrosse team ever wanted to have any kind of fun with Crystal.

Maybe she falsely accused them because she was miffed.

Thanks for addresses to the various mug shots of Crystal Mangum, but if you will notice, the one of her April 3, 2011 arrest is extremely blurry and out of focus. How can you expect to see anything in it? The photos in prosecution discovery that her attorney has withheld from her undoubtedly are much sharper images and give a better record than the fuzzy media alleged mug photo.

You may expect to see nothing in it, which is not surprising since you choose to be blind to things like the assault on a female charge against Reginald Daye was baseless, but it is clear enough to show no evidence of a severe beating to the head and neck.

How do you know that the prosecution has photos which were withheld from Crystal? Did Crystal tell you that? That is, the same Crystal who lied to you about burning Milton Walker's clothes?
