Ever since I filed the handwritten motions by Crystal Mangum with the Clerk of Court’s office on June 28, 2012, anonymi commenters and the Intern, in particular, have been inundating me with challenges to put these documents online. No doubt, they felt my failure to take the initiative to do so was an indication of some sort of smoking gun. Undoubtedly they believed that I had some major hand in their preparation and construction. These ill-willers, without doubt, had hoped that I, in some way, had violated my pledge to the North Carolina State Bar to refrain from acting in the future as an attorney.
Despite my assurances that the handwritten motions by Mangum revealed very little, and their importance lied in the fact that they requested the Court to step in and rule on the extremely important issues of dismissing charges and reducing bail, Intern and his comrades persisted in trying to provoke me into posting the motions online. As I explained time and again, the precious time necessary to put them on the blog site was better spent on blogs and flogs that I was working on that dealt specifically with Crystal Mangum’s case. For example, trying to respond to the negative publicity generated by the media that a “Mangum supporter was being investigated by the State Bar” and composing an formal complaint for submission to the North Carolina Attorney General’s Office, I believe, held priority. (As an aside, I have not as of yet received a response from my formal complaint to the Attorney General’s Office.)
Alas, I have given in to the demands of Intern et al in hopes of silencing them on the topic and not giving them false hopes as to the possibility of something being amiss. All three motions are presented on the link at the end of this blog.
Reinvigorated and refreshed after my little respite, I am ready jump into the NC criminal justice scene with both feet. I have begun work on a super-secret project, the likes of which Nifong and Mangum detractors cannot even begin to conceive… something original and unlike anything that has ever been seen on a blog site in history… ergo, something you’d never see on Durham-in-Wonderland or Liestoppers or any of the other boring blogs.
I have received a notice that a certified letter-return receipt from the NC State Bar is awaiting me, and I will retrieve it first thing tomorrow. Then I’ll post it on my blog site at my earliest convenience. There is a lot going on, and with Mangum’s case scheduled on the Court docket for August 6, 2012, I would expect significant activity to take place as a result. So, buckle your seat belt and press the peddle to the metal if you have any hopes of keeping up with this wild ride.
