Regarding Mangum case, the State and media are sending the public the wrong message about domestic violence

Today’s news stories are filled with reports about domestic violence which often result in death of one party or murder-suicide. However, the publicized cases are only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the number of domestic violence instances occurring in the state that are not covered by the media. The frequency and likelihood of a fatal outcome in these disputes is finally being brought forth, as well as the need to take measures to address these crimes. That is all good, however, the treatment of Duke Lacrosse victim/accuser Crystal Mangum by the State and the media is one giant leap backward.

Ever since she was identified as the accuser in the Duke Lacrosse case, Ms. Mangum has been in the justice system’s and the mainstream media’s crosshairs. Although Mangum claimed to have been sexually abused by partygoer’s at a March 13, 2006, Duke lacrosse hosted beer-guzzling, stripper ogling bacchanal, talk was bandied about whether or not she should face criminal charges after Attorney General Roy Cooper dropped charges against the three Duke Lacrosse defendants, without precedence proclaimed them to be “innocent,” and then averred that “nothing happened.” Although Mr. Cooper refused to pursue charges against Mangum because of her supposed emotional problems and mental instability, I suspect the real reason for not charging her was because if taken to trial, the truth would come out… a truth about which the State and media did not want Durhamians and Tar Heelians to know.

A Duke Lacrosse trial would have brought to the surface a lot of unseemly activity by the Blue Devil’s team which had earned it the disreputable reputation it had… one which forced Duke University President Richard Brodhead to warn the lacrosse Coach Pressler to rein in his players… one in which a third of the team had had run-ins with the law (mainly misdemeanors associated with alcohol, under-aged drinking, open alcoholic containers in the car, public drunkenness, and urinating in public), and one which showed disdain towards females. Under the light of any amount of scrutiny, no matter how cursory, the accusation of sexual abuse by this motley crew would be more than plausible.

I surmise that former Durham District Attorney Mike Nifong, knowing the racial (Ms. Mangum and another African American dancer were called the N-word epithet by partygoers) and political implications of this case, and how the powerful Duke University would likely sweep the incident under the carpet, took control of the investigation in order to assure that equal justice for all was the outcome of this case. That’s when the State stepped in, with the State Bar targeting Mr. Nifong in order to get him off the case. Not only that, but the State and media set out to make an example of Nifong in order to assure that in the future no attorney would dare oppose the will of the Powers-That-Be. Mr. Nifong was then disbarred on some trumped up charges, while the NAACP, and leaders in the African American community silently sat on their hands doing nothing while he was persecuted to the most extreme extent.

In what was to develop into a pattern, Mangum’s side of the story was not presented to the public.

Approximately four years later, Mangum was involved in a domestic violence incident in which an ex-boyfriend struck her repeatedly in the face because of an unflattering comment she made about him. This February 17, 2010 attack, which took place before her three children, galvanized the oldest one to phone 9-1-1 seeking assistance for their mother out of fear for her welfare or life. This was the opening that the State had long sought… a chance for payback against Mangum, the Duke Lacrosse accuser. Even Mangum was wary about the role her past might play regarding the treatment she received by the Durham Police force… so she advised them that their assistance was not required and identified herself using her sister’s name. However, once the men and women in blue had her true identity, the plotting began in earnest.

A bathtub fire of unknown origin was allowed by police to burn without attempts to extinguish it while awaiting the fifteen minute arrival of Durham’s Bravest. Several fire truck units and two dozen firefighters were roused from their beds in the middle of the knight to douse a few clothes burning in a bathtub. Although none of the building’s structure was damaged by flame, the smoke damage to the bathroom that was the consequence of police idleness was extensive. At most, the charge sought against the fire-starter should have been a misdemeanor vandalism, and not felony first degree arson as was indicted by a grand jury.

When led from the apartment, Mangum was held handcuffed in a patrol car while officers talked and mingled with Mangum’s ex-boyfriend. Although he initiated the physical altercation by punching Mangum repeatedly in the face, he was neither arrested nor charged… and instead was described as a “victim of Mangum.” That is the story that the media carried, with no investigator or media-type interviewing Ms. Mangum for her account of what had transpired.

This is a definite case of domestic violence in which the true victim, Mangum, is labeled as the aggressor in an outrageously unbelievable reversal of roles. But the State and the media did not want to delve into the specifics… and neither did the North Carolina Coalition Against Domestic Violence, a Durham-based organization. Back in 2010, Committee on Justice for Mike Nifong members Sidney B. Harr and Steven Matherly went to that organization to seek support and assistance for Mangum, a victim of domestic violence who was being wrongfully imprisoned in a vendetta prosecution by the State. The Coalition refused to provide any help for Crystal Mangum.

Although the State planned to have Mangum languish in jail for a couple of years before bringing her case to trial, her bond was unexpectedly satisfied after only three months of incarceration, at which time she was release… but under electronic monitoring house arrest. The trial that followed months later resulted in her conviction of three trumped up misdemeanor charges, and a mistrial on the most serious felony first degree arson charge… this despite a featherweight defense. Mangum was sentenced to time served and the prosecutors decided not to re-try her on the arson case.

This brings us to the current legal episode in which Crystal Gail Mangum is being charged with first degree murder in the April 13, 2011 death of Reginald Daye, and two counts of “larceny of chose in action.” The latter charge was filed concomitantly with the murder charge in order to elevate it to first degree status using the “felony-murder rule.” This charge is totally bogus as none of the elements required for “larceny of chose in action” are met as: (1) Mangum did not steal any cashier’s checks and Daye admitted in a police report that he gave the checks to Mangum; (2) Mangum never converted or attempted to convert the cashier’s checks in order to unlawfully obtain the property of another person or corporation; and (3) with Daye’s untimely and unfortunate death – for which Mangum had no responsibility – the prosecution lacks a prosecuting witness. Defense attorneys for Mangum for more than a year and a half have refused to challenge the baseless larceny charge; something that a reasonable person with full knowledge of the facts would conclude that Mangum’s representation was not acting in accordance with her best interests.

That this is a vendetta prosecution by the State is obvious, but what is cleverly concealed from the public by the State and media is the roles of the two participants in this domestic violence incident… as once again, Mangum, the true victim, is the designated assailant, and Reginald Daye, the true aggressor, is depicted as the victim. Although Daye was the victim of a stabbing, which Mangum admits to have inflicted in self-defense, he was the perpetrator of the domestic violence that preceded it and of which it was a consequence.

The State has played down the truths about Reginald Daye while the mainstream media has shown remarkable ambivalence about knowing the man and his demons. Reginald Daye had a violent criminal background that included assault on a female… brass knuckles even being recovered in his apartment. In a police interview with Sgt. Marianne Bond, Daye admitted to punching Lavern Reed, a female, in the face four or five times, although he says that that attack occurred 20-25 years ago. The State and media have also suppressed the fact that Daye was an alcoholic, who Mangum estimated drank a case of beer each weekday, and a gallon of whiskey on weekends. His capacity for prodigious ethanol consumption was evidenced by his apparent alert level of consciousness while he had a blood alcohol level at the time of the incident of 296 mg/dL – a level that would put the average non-alcoholic adult male in a stupor.

That Daye was an enraged and out-of-control aggressor in the domestic violence incident is evidenced by the following: (1) he physically punched Mangum about the face and head with swelling to the left lower lip and left side of her face evident; (2) he physically attacked her by gouging at her face with his fingernails – depicted on police forensic photographs; (3) he pulled out her hair – clumps noted near the bathroom door and in the master bedroom; and (4) he busted down the locked bathroom door, knocking the frame from the jamb, in order to get at a terrified Mangum who was seeking refuge from him.

Ms. Mangum states that Daye had his hands on her throat strangling her when she grabbed a nearby steak knife (which Daye had brought in from the kitchen), and stabbed him once. However, neither Officer Bond nor any other officer or investigator got this history because they never asked her. No one interviewed Mangum because she was arrested first, based solely on Daye’s questionable account of an armed robbery scenario in which she stole money and stabbed him… an account that was echoed by his nephew Carlos Wilson, who did not witness the incident. According to Bond’s own report, when she first visited Mangum in custody, she asked the defendant if she wanted to give a statement, to which Mangum replied, “Yes.” Sgt. Bond then informed Mangum that she was under arrest and charged with assault with a deadly weapon with the intent to kill, and the officer then read Mangum her Miranda Rights informing her that anything she said can and would be used against her in a court of law. After informing her of her rights, Bond asked Mangum if she “wanted to answer some questions,” to which Mangum responded in the negative, and the alleged interview was concluded with the officer leaving.

At no time since that April 3, 2011 morning after the incident, has anyone on the prosecutor side attempted to obtain Mangum’s statement about transpired in the wee predawn hours earlier. Durham Prosecutors Kelly Gauger and Charlene Coggins-Franks have been content to go along with the version given by the late Reginald Daye and his nephew Carlos Wilson… which apparently goes as follows:

• After coming home from a birthday party early that Sunday morning, Daye, who was heavily intoxicated, got into an argument with Mangum over money? The amount never indicated by prosecutors.

• Daye can’t remember whether or not he may have punched Crystal, however he states that she punched him in the face with her fists several times. (Crystal denies punching Daye in the face but states that when he grabbed her by her legs to pull her off the bed, she flailed her legs and may have kicked him in the face.)

• Daye told her to leave, then admits to later telling her she wasn’t going anywhere… then telling her again to leave?

• According to Daye, Mangum sometime thereafter locked herself in the bathroom to make a call to a male to give her a ride, at which time he busted down the door.

• After breaking down the door, Daye grabs her by the hair in order to escort her out of the apartment… and accidentally pulls out a couple of globs of hair.

• Crystal then goes into the kitchen, grabs a steak knife, at which time he tries to get out of her way, and then, without provocation, she stabs him in the back.

The above account is one that not even the police or prosecutors believe because Mangum was not charged with larceny of property at that time and it was not pursued. There is ample evidence, even in the police account of brutality and violence on behalf of Daye, not to mention his intoxicated state and his uncontrolled rage which led to his busting the door frame from the door jamb.

Prosecutors were even aware of a prior incident of domestic violence that occurred approximately nine days prior to the self-defense stabbing when Daye assaulted Mangum so severely that she called a friend, Larry O’Briant, to give her a ride to a medical clinic. Mr. O’Briant even gave a voluntary statement to the police about this incident that occurred on Thursday, March 24, 2011. However, prosecutors did not even have curiosity enough to even look into this incident… as it did not factor into their accusing Mangum as being the assailant in the April 3, 2011 conflict. Neither prosecutors nor Mangum’s defense attorneys, all aware of the fight that preceded the stabbing by just over a week, asked Mangum about it or had her sign a release to obtain clinic records of her visit. All because they do not want Crystal Mangum to be portrayed as what she was… a victim of domestic violence.

Using a criminally fraudulent April 14, 2011 Autopsy Examination Report by North Carolina Deputy Chief Medical Examiner Clay Nichols, Durham prosecutors have been trying to put Crystal Mangum, a two time victim of domestic violence and an alleged victim of sexual abuse, in prison for the rest of her life without the possibility of parole as payback for her role in the Duke Lacrosse case. This goal they have tried to achieve with the cooperation of the mainstream media, and by having politicians (McKissick, Michaux, Hall, Price and others) and civil rights groups (NAACP, ACLU, North Carolina Coalition Against Domestic Violence) look the other way.

Only the Committee on Justice for Mike Nifong has stood up to this conspiratorial injustice against Mangum, and because of its efforts, the State is no longer seeking a life sentence for her, but instead is now attempting to force Mangum to accept a plea deal in order to protect the medical examiner, Duke University Hospital for its culpability in Daye’s death, and to protect the City of Durham from liability for its malicious prosecution of Mangum. The Committee is fighting this, as well.

The State and the mainstream media, local and national, can talk tough against domestic violence, but when it comes to proof being in the pudding, it is definitely sending the wrong message by its vindictive and horrendous treatment of Crystal Mangum… a true victim of domestic violence who is, in addition, a victim of the State and the media. 

Crystal Mangum is the false accuser/victimizer in the Duke Lacrosse case. What the media has said about Crystal is that she was the false accuser and that she was indicted for the death of Reginald Daye and charged with Murder 1.

"Although Mangum claimed to have been sexually abused by partygoer’s at a March 13, 2006, Duke lacrosse hosted beer-guzzling, stripper ogling bacchanal,..."

You mean after she had lied about being assaulted and sexually abused at said party, which was not a "beer-guzzling, stripper ogling bacchanal,..."


'...talk was bandied about whether or not she should face criminal charges..."

Talk was bandied about as to whether Crystal should have faced criminal charges because she filed a false police report. Other false accusers have faced legal action, although no where near as much as was faced by the people they falsely accused.

"after Attorney General Roy Cooper dropped charges against the three Duke Lacrosse defendants, without precedence proclaimed them to be “innocent,”

AG Cooper expressed his belief that the Lacrosse players were innocent because he had investigated the case and found no Crime had been committed. This is something SIDNEY never did. His unprcedented action happened because of DA NIFONG's illegal, unethical inflammatory statements at the start of the case.

"and then averred that 'nothing happened.'”

That was because nothing had happened. SIDNEY has never offered evidence that something happened, only unproven allegations about some non existent carpetbagger jihad and jedi mind tricks - other than when he is being evasive about his medical credentials, or lack thereof.

No it wouldn't. That evidence would not be relevant to a trial for rape. It would not even be considered evidence.

The disreputable reputation of the Lacrosse player is a figment of SIDNEY's megalomaniac imagination. It is not true. A trial of the Duke Lacrosse team should never have happened because there was no evidence of a crime.

DA NIFONG took control of the case in order to convict innocent men of the rape which never happened because that would win him the vote of Duke's black electorate and get him elected to the office of DA - previously he had been appointed to it, not elected to it as some have claimed.

The case became a racially charged issue when DA NIFONG, who at the time had no facts on the case told ABC 11 in Raleigh that the alleged crime had been racially motivated."

"That’s when the State stepped in, with the State Bar targeting Mr. Nifong in order to get him off the case. Not only that, but the State and media set out to make an example of Nifong in order to assure that in the future no attorney would dare oppose the will of the Powers-That-Be."

The state bar stepped in in December of 2006, about 8 months after the indictments, mainly because of DA NIFONG's multiple public inflammatory statements made at the beginning of the case. Ethical standards for DA's, something SIDNEY likes to cite, is unequivocal about DAs NOT making public statements prejudicial to any potential defendant.

"Mr. Nifong was then disbarred on some trumped up charges, while the NAACP, and leaders in the African American community silently sat on their hands doing nothing while he was persecuted to the most extreme extent."

The NAACP and leaders of the African American community stood by because by that time they realized the charges against DA NIFONG were meritorious. DA NIFONG's multiple public inflammatory guilt presuming statements are a matter of public record. He concealed exculpatory evidence and lied to the court about it.

If Crystal had a case against the Lacrosse players, she could have filed a civil suit. She did not.

Her "side of the story" did not come out until more than a year after the players were EXONERATED, something DA NIFONG should have done but did not have the B---LS to do. Crystal's story is a falsification of multiple events, including her arrest for stealing a cab while drunk, leading the police on a high speed chase and then trying to run down a police officer.

There was a mugshot taken of Crystal after her arrest which showed no evidence of Crystal having been punched repeatedly in the face.

"A bathtub fire of unknown origin was allowed by police to burn without attempts to extinguish it while awaiting the fifteen minute arrival of Durham’s Bravest."

SIDNEY's first claim was that a Durham police officer deliberately set the fire to frame Crystal for arson. Crystal actually admitted to the police she had set the fire, something SIDNEY acknowledged. Now SIDNEY is saying the fire was of indeterminate origin.

The first thing the Duke Lacrosse Defence did in the rape case was to try and dig up something that would discredit the victim. They quickly uncovered the case with a taxi driver and the supposed theft of his cab. Wildly exaggerated stories appeared right left and center about it suggesting it was grand theft auto, dangerous driving,felony fleeing, attempted vehicular homicide and drunken driving. It's disposition with three misdemenors and three weekend in gaol indicate the real nature of the incident. Crystal thought she had permission to drive the vehicle. Her so called high speed chase was 10 mph over the limit. It was called a chase because she initially did not see the flashing lights. There was no deliberate attempt to run into the Policeman. In trying to park she accidentally sideswiped him as he approached.

BULLSHIT!!!!!

There was no metanarrative, only police records. Those were not uncovered by the Lacrosse defense attorneys.

Crystal's account was concocted after she was revealed to be a lying false accuser and the Lacrosse players were EXONERATED. It was something Crystal concocted more than 6 years after the event, an obvious lie into which you unsurprisingly buy because of your resentment towards men who are better off and more accomplished than you.

SIDNEY has no first hand knowledge of how extensive the fire was at the time the police were called. The fact to which he admits that there was structural damage to the building and smoke damage to the apartment shows it was more than clothes smoldering in the bath tub.

"When led from the apartment, Mangum was held handcuffed in a patrol car while officers talked and mingled with Mangum’s ex-boyfriend."

Crystal did not tell anyone about the fire until AFTER she was in custody. SIDNEY blames the police, who had no training in fighting fires and called for help from people who did, for the damage which resulted from a fire which CRYSTAL, I say again, CRYSTAL lit.

Mangum does not have to accept a plea deal. In fact, there is no documentation that such a deal has been offered or has ever existed. Mangum can hold out for a trial. I hope she does!!! If she is so confident and competent, let the trial begin..........all she has to do is decline the plea deal, IF one is ever offered.

What makes this bullshit is that Crystal had the opportunity to claim self defense due to domestic violence when she was arrested and she did not. When Detective Bond interviewed Reginald Daye shortly after the stabbing he said Crystal was the aggressor. Crystal did not claim self defense secondary to domestic violence until after Reginald Daye had died.

The police asked Crystal for a statement. After being read her Miranda rights, Crystal declined to give a statement. SIDNEY HARR blames the police for the timing of Crystal's claim of self defense, that they never pressed her for her story.

Think of it. In the face of asserting her right to remain silent, the police do not press her for a statement. SIDNEY blames their respect for her right against self incrimination for the lack of credibility of her claims of self defense and domestic violence.

this is nothing more than the same old rehash of the lies and distortions that harr has been churning out for years. same old bullcrap.
Mangum is going to have to face the music this time. if she is lucky, she might get off with time served plus three to five. If she is lucky. self defense? My left elbow. Two people have an alcohol fueled quarrel, one of whom is known drunk/substance abusing criminal with a history of violent behavior....who takes a knife to the other. yep. This time mangum has no place to hide. The whining and ranting and blaming and squalling about her poor victim status is not going to fly. No evidence of a beating has ever been produced and harr knows it. this is just another after-the-fact fantasy story to cover her well used backside....just as she did in 2002, just as she did in 2006, just as she did in 2010. this time, folks, it aint gonna fly.

Lies
Daye has no record, no documentation, of being an alcoholic. His liver was normal. Because mangum, the serial liar, stated he drank a great deal, does NOT make him a alcoholic. consider her credibility. harr is a liar.
Distortions:
WHO, of the two, has criminal convictions involving violence? Not Daye. Mangum! Harr is a liar and a distorter of truth.
Lies
Mangum thretened to stab walker with a knife in the presence of an officer. Harr lies by omission.
Lies
Photos of Mangum do NOT show injuries described by harr...not at all. Harr is a liar
Lies
Daye told Mangum he did not want her to leave, to "go out with men", as she often did, returning with two or three hundred dollars. Daye was asked if she was a prostitute. First, he said no. when pressed by an officer, he said yes. harr lies by omission.
lies
Harr has made up numerous fictional accounts of the 2006, 2010 and 2012 incidents. He fails to account for yet another incident, in 2002, that involving drunk driving, reckless driving, trying to run over an officer, stealing a man's car........all occuring on a night when she was drunk on her ass, in a strip club, and following an altercation that same night with a female customer in the same club that Mangum threatened to hit.
Harr lies about mangum's character. she is not a single innocent mother of three. she is an immoral convicted criminal who has a decade long record of violence against persons and property.

Talk about playing down the truths.

Detective Sgt. Bond interviewed Reginald Daye twice in the hospital. When she asked him if he had ever hit a woman, he said yes, that the incident was 20 to 25 years previously. She asked him if he had had relationships with other women. He said yes and named Mary Outterbridge and Stella Rhodes. Detective Sergeant Bond interviewed both women. Both women stated Mr. Daye was not a violent man. Ms. Rhodes stated she would be willing to act as a character witness for Mr. Daye.

What we have hear is SIDNEY HARR attempting to conceal evidence that Mr. Daye WAS NOT an habitual violent criminal with a history of habitual violence towards women.

By concealing evidence, SIDNEY HARR is trying to frame Reginald Daye, a dead man who can not defend himself.

Way to go, SIDNEY-minion-of-satn-HARR.

The forensic photographs to which SIDNEY refers do not show any evidence that Reginald Daye beat her. Here, SIDNEY is trying to frame a dead man who can not defend himself by distorting evidence.

"(3) he pulled out her hair – clumps noted near the bathroom door and in the master bedroom;

I guess that is true. However, according to Reginald Daye's statement, Crystal was assaulting him. Crystal's claim of self defense came into being after Mr. Daye was dead and she was facing a charge of Murder 1. SIDNEY's weak arguments notwithstanding, Crystal could have said self defense and domestic violence when she was arrested and did not.

"and (4) he busted down the locked bathroom door, knocking the frame from the jamb, in order to get at a terrified Mangum who was seeking refuge from him."

In the context of a violent confrontation which was initiated by Crystal. Mr. Daye's statement was that Crystal exhibited violent behavior which he had never seen before, more evidence relevant to the case which SIDNEY tries to conceal.

It is obvious that this prosecution is happening because to believe Crystal perpetrated a violent crime.

"but what is cleverly concealed from the public by the State and media is the roles of the two participants in this domestic violence incident… as once again, Mangum, the true victim, is the designated assailant, and Reginald Daye, the true aggressor, is depicted as the victim."

This argument rings awful hollow considering all the evidence that Reginald Daye was not a violent man, evidence which SIDNEY is going to great lengths to conceal. SIDNEY is trying to frame a dead man who can not defend himself.

"Although Daye was the victim of a stabbing, which Mangum admits to have inflicted in self-defense, he was the perpetrator of the domestic violence that preceded it and of which it was a consequence.

There is no evidence that Reginald Daye was the perpetrator of violent incident which led to his death. Crystal, again, did not claim self defense when she was arrested. She made her claim of self defense after Reginald Daye was dead ans she was facing a charge of Murder 1, another fact which Sidney has tried to conceal. When he failed to conceal that evidence, SIDNEY blamed the timing of Crystal's claim of self defense on the police because they read her her Miranda rights and she then declined to talk to them.

I point out, DA NIFONG, whom SIDNEY evidently admires, claimed that when members of the Lacrosse team availed themselves of their right of silence, that was an indication of their guilt.

That in and of itself is an indication that SIDNEY is an incompetent physician, that he never should have been admitted to medical school in the first place.

"I suspect the real reason for not charging [Crystal with filing a false police report] was because if taken to trial, the truth would come out… a truth about which the State and media did not want Durhamians and Tar Heelians to know."

Your suspicions were and are baseless. The truth had already come out for all "Durhamians and Tar Heelians to know." Crystal had lied about being raped.

Incidentally, by saying that you reveal your belief that the Lacrosse players were guilty, something else you try to conceal.

"• Daye can’t remember whether or not he may have punched Crystal, however he states that she punched him in the face with her fists several times. (Crystal denies punching Daye in the face but states that when he grabbed her by her legs to pull her off the bed, she flailed her legs and may have kicked him in the face.)"

Detective Sergeant Bond did observe that Reginald Daye did have a black eye. Crystal's allegations, again, came after Reginald Daye was dead and she was facing a charge of Murder 1.

"Only the Committee on Justice for Mike Nifong has stood up to this conspiratorial injustice against Mangum, and because of its efforts, the State is no longer seeking a life sentence for her, but instead is now attempting to force Mangum to accept a plea deal in order to protect the medical examiner, Duke University Hospital for its culpability in Daye’s death, and to protect the City of Durham from liability for its malicious prosecution of Mangum. The Committee is fighting this, as well.

You have presented no evidence that Duke was culpable for the death of Reginald Daye. You have presented no evidence that Crystal was prosecuted because of a vendetta against her. You have no evidence that the medical examiner falsified the findings on the autopsy report.

You have established no factual justification for any of your ridiculous delusions.

Let's face it. Two people got themselves intoxicated, had an argument, the arguement turned ugly, then the argument turned physical...and, in the end....Mangum jacked it up a notched and killed Daye. There is not one tiny shred of evidence that the killing was in self defense. Not one. Actually, there is not even any evidence that Daye went after her.........the photos do NOT show injury consistent with any kind of beating, punching, scratching, choking or otherwise. She has tiny lint sized divot on her cheek which could have been self inflicted. and she has herpes sores on her lip. wow, some beating!
this is all a bunch of bull invented by a serial liar and her racist pal, harr.

"Prosecutors were even aware of a prior incident of domestic violence that occurred approximately nine days prior to the self-defense stabbing when Daye assaulted Mangum so severely that she called a friend, Larry O’Briant, to give her a ride to a medical clinic. Mr. O’Briant even gave a voluntary statement to the police about this incident that occurred on Thursday, March 24, 2011. However, prosecutors did not even have curiosity enough to even look into this incident… as it did not factor into their accusing Mangum as being the assailant in the April 3, 2011 conflict. Neither prosecutors nor Mangum’s defense attorneys, all aware of the fight that preceded the stabbing by just over a week, asked Mangum about it or had her sign a release to obtain clinic records of her visit. All because they do not want Crystal Mangum to be portrayed as what she was… a victim of domestic violence."

Prosecutors and Defenders were aware only of a statement by Mr. O'Briant that Crystal had alleged she had been assaulted by Mr. Daye. There was nothing in that statement about Crystal actually being treated.

The question is, why did Crystal not try to have Larry O'Briant get the records. Or why have you, acting on Crystal's behalf, not obtained the records.

You have managed to obtain a lot of other records which contain evidence that Crystal's claim of self defense is bogus, evidence you have tried to conceal.

My guess is, that you have tried to obtain records of said alleged beating, that you failed, and you are trying to conceal the fact that no such visit ever happened.

Officer Irwin's interview with Mr. O'Briant contains no references to any incident in March of 2011 of a fight between Crystal and Reginald Daye. Mr. O'Briant did say that Crystal stabbed Mr. Daye. Crystal made no claim of self defense at that time.

Officer Bond's interview with Mr. O'Briant documented that Mr. O'Briant took Crystal to Triangle Orthopedic Associates. Earlier, Mr. O'Biant said he took her to a different place, Urgent Care.

Break the Conspiracy said...
I want to thank Sidney for posting the photographs of both the broken bathroom door and Crystal's injuries. I found the O'Briant statement interesting. This evidence can be useful with a self-defense claim as it may support her claim of a physical altercation. However, the the evidence is not nearly as compelling as Sidney had claimed earlier. It does not conclusively address the question of whether Crystal was sufficiently threatened to justify stabbing Daye...

...I suggest that Crystal, Sidney and Ken consider the possibility that a jury may not accept Ken's stated view that each of Crystal's statements must be considered separately and taken as credible and accurate as long as one cannot prove with absolute certainty that the statement in question cannot possibly be true. I would not wish to base my defense against multiple felonies on a jury accepting that threshold.

Hopefully, the delays will soon end. We can all agree that no defendant should be required to wait more than 600 days for trial. The NC justice system truly is broken.


Thank you, Break, for your intelligent and insightful contribution to the comment section.

Although Crystal's photos do not show severity at that point and time, it is clear the left side of her lower lip is swollen (or larger than the right side), and that the lesions allegedly made by Daye's fingernails are present. Also, it didn't take severe physical findings for Durham police to arrest a NCCU Dean on the charge of assault on a female for allegedly grabbing her by the arm and shoving her into a file cabinet. Standards of justice and legality are different for Crystal than for all other Tar Heelians.

Rest assured that I will post Dr. Roberts' report once I get a hold of it. She has had more than ample time to prepare it, but she doesn't want to give a written report to Mangum because it would implicate the medical examiner and Duke University in acts of misdeeds and malfeasances.

The State has yet to set a trial date... they dread to do so, hoping instead to scare Mangum into accepting a plea deal.

Crystal's next court appearance is on Friday, December 7, 2012, at which time I am sure she will present her motion to dismiss the larceny of chose in action charge.

Thanks, again for your contributions... We'll see what happens Friday.

He obviously does not want to discuss it, does not feel he has to disclose any details (which he definitely does NOT), and tells us basically to stick it in our ear. so, in keeping with his attitude of anonmous private none-of-your-business approach, I would say it is another example of his FLAMIMG hypocrisy to criticize anybody who posts here anonomously.

Since the Dr. Roberts' investigation was done to facilitate Crystal's defense, if there is no report, the most likely reason is that it does not facilitate Crystal's defense.

The State has yet to set a trial date... they dread to do so, hoping instead to scare Mangum into accepting a plea deal.

You are the one who dreads a trial. You are trying to prevent a trial. You would have no reason to do that if the State has no case. If the state has no case you would be urging Crystal to go to trial.

You realize that for Crystal to offer self defense as her defense, she would have to testify under oath and submit to cross examination. When she announced her book, she alleged she had been raped but did not want to give any details. That would say she did not want to be cross examined.

Who is going to prove the autopsy is fraudulent. You? You do not have the credentials or ability to comment. If you were to testify, you would reveal to people who do not already know it that you are a totally incompetent physician.

I would bet the prosecution would be able to come up with more people to discredit any Dr, Roberts report than you could to come up with people to discredit the Dr. Nichols autopsy report.

Maybe there were no medical records to obtain. Mr. O'Briant was not consistent about where he took her. First he claimed it was an urgent care clinic. Then he claimed it was an Orthopedic group's office.

Orthopods usually do not see acutely injured patients in the office settings.

Harr does not know jack scratch about domestic violence. Mangum's behavior does NOT fit the profile and the pattern of a domestic violence victim AT ALL. I have worked around domestic violence victims before and I can say, without a doubt, that Mangum's behavior is completely out of character for a true victim of domestic violence. The violent person in both the Walker and the Daye relationships has been Mangum. I am certain neither of these men were perfect. I am sure that alcohol has been a regular feature in Mangum's life throughout her adulthood. I am certain her sex worker lifestyle, her drinking and drug using, her history of emotional and mental instability....all contributed to what happened to 2010 and certainly in 2012. Daye may have gotten angry and gotten physical with her.....but it was Mangum who went after him with a deadly weapon. She certainly does NOT show the marks of a beating. I have seen the faces of women beaten in these situations. Her photos do not match up to a beating at all.
There is something fundamentally wrong with this woman. If she has suffered any abuse at all, it has been and continues to be , at the hands of people like sidney harr. he is a disgrace to this community

This is further PROOF that Mangum was the aggressor and not the victim of an assault by Daye, as an aggressor.

There is no question that Daye's liver would have shown damage ......Mangum claimed he drank a "case of beer every night" and a huge amount of whiskey on the weekends. With this kind of intake and at his age, his liver would clearly have shown damage. Kenny hissy is full of pissy on this one.
Whether Daye was or was not an alcoholic is not even relevant! He admitted they BOTH had been drinking that evening. Alcohol was a part of the equation. Harr is trying to make a false argument. He is trying to say that daye was an alcoholic and, therefore, date was the aggressor and that, therefore, mangum stabbed him in self defense. Horse hockey.
It is also not relevant that daye admitted to hitting a woman 20 or 25 years ago. How many of us can say we have never done anything stupid? Even the jesus quoter, harr, has made mistakes. Apparently he had criminal charges filed against him at some point . At least daye had the courage and honesty to admit to his behavior, up front, and to take responsibility for it. Clearly he has witnesses who will say, in court, he was NOT violent toward them. Can Mangum put anybody on the stand to say she is not violent? No.....that's for certain.
I find it disgusting that anybody, I mean anybody, would describe this woman as an innocent mother of three. The damage that has no doubt been done to the kids by exposure to her lifestyle cannot be measured. I hope the courts keep her away from them for a very long time.

There are several types of liver disease associated with chronic alcohol abuse. Almost all alcoholics have evidence of liver disease in at least one of its progressively worse forms. It would be exceedingly rare for a man to consume the amount of alcohol Mangums claims that Daye drank (see Harr's latest post), for years, and still show " a healthy pink liver" in autopsy notations. furthermore, there is zero evidence, such as statements from neighbors, friends, relatives, or others, to backup mangums' statements about daye's abuse of alcohol.
My bet is that they both were drinking and drinking way too much that day........and that mangum, as she has done before, got out of hand and used a deadly weapon on daye. Harr refuses to admit that mangum is the one who has the history of convictions involving violence and threats of violence......not daye. in fact, the single charge of domestic violence against daye was DROPPED....harr continues to ignore this fact, as though ignoring it will somehow make it go away.

He was drinking. He was shacked up with Mangum. But the real truth here is that this user trash went nuts and attacked him over money. It is as clear as can be. I have no doubt that Daye was upset and angry and that he was drunk. But Mangum is the one who uttered those words that told it all........I'm going to fxxx you up.......that phrase says it all.

KENHYDERAL:

This is from the appropriately named Liestoppers, which you say was created to carry obn a vendetta against Crystal:

"I will add that while my own jaundiced opinion is that she is guilty; nevertheless it is another
example of the poor quality of Durham justice that anyone--Mangum included--has had to spend
over 600 days in jail without being brought to trial.


(Doesn't the Constitution apply in NC? I guess not--we learned that in the lacrosse case.


Nor, it seems, does Magna Carta.


Apparently all those who fought that long struggle for rights and achieved what they did,
did so in vain as far as it applies to NC...)"

Read it and gag on your own words.

Here is a link to an earlier LIESTOPPERS blog which concerns Floyd McKissick's change of attitude towards corrupt DA NIFONG:

http://liestoppers.blogspot.com/2007/04/durham-county-democratic-party-chairman.html

Read it ans weep.


Hah! First of all, this is a blog from of all sources, Liestoppers. It's not even a news article from a biased mainstream media outlet.

Furthermore, the headline that McKissick does an about face on Nifong is supported by one rinky-dink statement that doesn't say much of anything... the paragraph in the blog is listed below:
"The African-American community of Durham wants fairness, and the view is that if Mr. Nifong was not fair in this case, what's he going to be like in other cases?" said Floyd McKissick, a prominent African-American lawyer who is chairman of the Durham Democratic Party and a Duke Law School graduate.

So, I'm suppose to put credence into your statement that McKissick turned against Nifong. That's pretty doggone funny.

sidney, you cannot expect people to take you seriously when you continue to make outlandish claims such as expecting people to believe Mr. Daye was an alcoholic simply because Mangum said he drank too much. That's ridiculous and you know it. You also know that a hardcore alcoholic if his age would have liver damage. Further, you KNOW that the drugs administered to him were drugs that are given for a wide variety of indications and not exclusively for the treatment of withdrawal. Don't expect people to fall for your nonsense, sidney. It just does not work.


Of course Daye was an alcoholic. Even his two girlfriends prior to Mangum acknowledged this. Not only that, but the fact that he can appear pretty much awake and alert with a blood alcohol level that would put a non-alcoholic adult male in a stupor, supports the fact that he had high tolerance to alcohol and was most likely an alcoholic. Also, delirium tremens is a complication most readily brought forth in alcoholics. Finally, in an autopsy report that claims fraudulently that there were perforations to the left lung, diaphragm, left kidney and fundus of the stomach, how can you believe in the description he gives of the liver. Dr. Nichols' entire autopsy report is discredited.

End of story.

The report of Sgt. Bond about interview with Larry O'Briant stated that a Ms. Kia Haynes reported hearing a woman in Reginald Daye's apartment loudly saying, I'm going to fuck you up. Go to the link Sidney provided and read the report.


Actually, Ms. Haynes also stated that she heard two different women in Daye's apartment as well as children. That information is on the audio recording of prosecution discovery in which the interview with Ms. Haynes was recorded.

Dr. Harr, I implore you to exercise your responsibility as Blog Host and remove hateful posts, such as was found here @ 5:17PM 12-5-12. No, person of goodwill will accuse you of censorship by disallowing such poison. I find it sickening and it's the sort of thing that in the past drove me away from here.


I agree that comments such as the one you referred to are distasteful and crude. However, my view is that even miscreants should be given access to express their views regardless of how obscene and vile. Keep in mind that it is only a reflection on the commenter. Do not allow cyber barbarians to chase you from the site... just continue to overwhelm them with your logic and astute commentary.

Since you put credence in things like imaginary carpetbagger jihads and jedi mind tricks which exist only in the fictional star words universe, it is too much to expect you to believe in a fact.

This is not a case of male domestic violence . This is a case of a prostitute leaching off a generous man and turning on him when the gravy train started to be drying up. Daye was not perfect. He was drinking. He was shacked up with Mangum. But the real truth here is that this user trash went nuts and attacked him over money. It is as clear as can be. I have no doubt that Daye was upset and angry and that he was drunk. But Mangum is the one who uttered those words that told it all........I'm going to fxxx you up.......that phrase says it all.


Hah! So you share the same theory as Durham prosecutors, that Mangum was desperate for money so she stabbed the man who she was sharing an apartment with in order to get possession of two cashier's checks on which she was neither the payee nor remitter... right?

Very nonsensical.

Pitiful attempt on the part of SIDNEY to obfuscate about his despicable and cowardly attempt to frame a dead man as an habitual violent abuser of women by concealing evidence he was not.

Also another demonstration that Sidney is a completely incompetent excuse for an incompetent physician.

He has demonstrated he will not address issues by dragging in irrelevant red herrings.

Have the both of you gone catatonic and unresponsive over the fact that SIDNEY has been trying to frame Reginald Daye for being a chronic habitual violent abuser of women by concealing evidence he was not?


Keep this in mind for future reference... I am in the trade of enlightenment, not concealment.

Fact is that Daye is an abuser of females... ask Lavern Reed. There are likely others of whose identities we know not who have been assaulted by Daye.

Sergeant Bond interviewed a neighbor of Mr. Daye who heard a woman in Mr. Daye's apartment yelling, I'm going to fuck you up, a piece of evidence you are trying to conceal, just like, in the face of Crystal's admissio, that Crystal did not set the fire which damaged Milton Walker's apartment. Now, THAT'S nonsensical. RIGHT!!!

Another bare faced lie. You lie, you do not enlighten, you obfuscate, and you try to conceal evidence favorable to Reginald Daye so, now that he is dead and unable to defend himself, you can frame him. You are a dung heap.

Why don't you provide those identities yourself. Because you can't. You only try to conceal the statements of women who have told Detective Bond he was not violent.

I say again, you are a thoroughly corrupt miserable excuse for a miserable excuse for a human being who is trying to frame a dead man who can't defend himself.

Did you get tired of attacking people who can defend themselves.

Sid -- accusing someone of a crime is one of the categories of slander that are actionable per se .

That is, you can't use your lack of knowledge about Mr. Daye as a defense.

I suggest you remove those statements before any of Mr. Daye's family reads them.

Sidney:

You first alleged that Daye had beaten Crystal on March 24 in a comment posted on November 5 at 1:21pm. You have had one month to obtain medical records. These records are critical. I recognize that not having a car makes it more difficult and time consuming to obtain these records—but not impossible.

* Do you have access to a telephone that you can use?
* Have you called the clinic to determine what is necessary?
* Have you asked Crystal to sign a release at your last weekly visit?
* Have you asked any J4N or FoCM members to assist you?
* Do you know any one else who owns a car?

Press reports on November 15 indicated that the court would instruct Roberts to produce the report. You have had three weeks to obtain the report. This report is critical to validate your criticism of the autopsy.

* Have you asked Crystal to sign a power of attorney authorizing you to obtain the report?
* Do you have access to a telephone that you can use?
* Have you called Roberts asking when the report will be available?
* Have you called Vann asking whether he has contacted Roberts?
* Have you asked any J4N or FoCM members to assist you?
* Do you know any one else who owns a car?

Crystal is looking to you for guidance, but you provide no leadership. You have done little more than to repeat the same complaints on a website with few readers.

I will regard you as an enabler if you do not act.

That for over a month SIDNEY has been ranting about why neither prosecution nor defense tried too obtain records of treatment of Crystal on March 24, 2011. That suggests there are no records.

SIDNEY's ranting is consistent with his goal of defaming Reginald Daye by concealing evidence favorable to him. Now SIDNEY is claiming there is evidence not favorable to Mr. Daye which prosecution and defense are conspiring to conceal.

SIDNEY HARR:

Here it is again for your enlightenment.

SIDNEY is trying to frame Reginald Daye as an habitual violent abuser of women. Mr. Daye is dead and can not defend himself. SIDNEY is doing this by trying to conceal evidence that Mr. Daye was not. Now, concerning the alleged incident of March 24, 2011, he is alleging that prosecution and defense have conspired to conceal evidence that he was.

Right on SIDNEY-minion-of-the-father-of-lies-HARR.

According to Liestoppers, a judge has ordered Dr. Christena Roberts to prepare a written report and has ruled that Crystal can review the report. However, Crystal will be with a custodial officer at the time, to prevent Crystal from sharing confidential information with unauthorized persons(read SIDNEY).

Maybe SIDNEY is silent because he is furious and rendered speechless because he will not be able to distort the Roberts report to support his ongoing attempt to frame a dead man who can not defend himself.

Anonymous said...

From Liestoppers regarding the report of Dr. Christena Roberts:

"[Woody] Vann told the judge that the doctor arranged to meet with the Capital Defender’s Office, which is located just down the street from the courthouse, on Monday to talk to them about what to do because she worries that she may violate medical privacy rules by producing a written report and giving it to Mangum, [Woody] Vann said."

snip

"[Crystal] then requested to be present at the meeting, and O’Foghludha said she could attend the meeting under the supervision of the Durham County Sheriff’s Office on the condition that only Vann, an attorney from the Capital Defender’s Office, the doctor, Mangum and a deputy attend it."

In other words to SIDNEY, butt out.

Does anyone want to bet SIDNEY will claim he is being excluded because he is a DA NIFONG Supporter?

Break the Conspiracy said...

I think it is inexcusable that Crystal is unable to bring Sidney to the meeting. He serves as her trusted lay advocate and medical advisor.

Sidney should show up for the meeting, and he and Crystal should insist that he be allowed to attend. Sidney must be there to prevent Roberts' report from covering up the malfeasance.

This is important enough that Sidney should be willing to go to jail for contempt.

Indeed he should.

I would bet, instead of risking a contempt citation and jail time, SIDNEY will come up with another pro se motion detailing all his actions on behalf of DA NIFONG, his frivolous lawsuit against Duke, to support his allegation that he will be the target of hostile action on the part of the Carpetbagger jihad if Crystal is convicted.
