Nyang’oro update

 Word count: 548
On Monday last week The News & Observer whet its readers’ appetite about the upcoming hearing involving former UNC-CH African Afro-American Studies Department chairman Julius Nyang’oro.  The hearing was scheduled to take place on Wednesday, however on Tuesday, the day prior to the hearing, the media (mainly McClatchy newspapers which are obsessed with bashing the reputation of Nyang’oro) announced that Orange County District Attorney Jim Woodall was having second thoughts about following through with the felony criminal prosecution of the former professor because he had been so cooperative with the investigation into the athletic-academic scandal lodged by Kenneth Wainstein. 
Although the UNC system under President Tom Ross prides itself in recouping the $12,000.00 paid to Nyang’oro for teaching a summer class which did not physically meet, it promptly set about paying Mr. Wainstein $990.00/hour and his associates in a range from $440-750/hour to conduct an investigation into whats/whys/whens/hows of the scandal.  This investigation, which has already chalked up more than four months, has been estimated to last until this fall… and why not since the attorneys are getting paid by the hour.  They’re going to milk this golden cow for all it’s worth!
Wainstein and his legal comrades evidently assured the Orange County D.A. Woodall that Nyang’oro was thoroughly cooperating with the investigation… a disclosure which seemed to shock the district attorney.  Had Woodall, or his assistant D.A.s taken the effort to question the black professor prior to criminally indicting him, then perhaps Woodall mightn’t’ve been so awed that Nyang’oro’s behavior was sincerely helpful. 
However, in North Carolina it is a common practice to arrest and even indict African American suspects without bothering to question them during an initial investigation.  That’s what happened to Crystal Mangum, the Duke Lacrosse victim/accuser, in the stabbing of Reginald Daye.  Bull City officers did not approach her an ask her for her side of the story surrounding the early morning physical confrontation.  Instead they handcuffed her (arresting her for assault and battery in the stabbing of Daye), took her to police headquarters, read her her Miranda Rights, then began to interrogate her.  A similar scenario played out in the murder charge against Knightdale resident Carletta Alston who spent a year in jail for the murder of her stepfather before being released with the charge dropped and without explanation.
Now it seems as though Woodall is going to be forced to drop his ill-advised charge against Julius Nyang’oro… and not for the reasons touted by the D.A.  Woodall could care less about Nyang’oro’s cooperation with Wainstein.  His concern is the unexpected collateral damage to administrators and others in UNC-CH upper echelon that a criminal investigation would expose.
The News & Observer last published that Woodall was in serious self-deliberation about dropping the criminal charge against Nyang’oro and that the hearing was still scheduled to take place on Wednesday.  However, it was The Herald Sun, a Durham daily that informed the public that the hearing had been cancelled.
So it appears that this politically charged felony prosecution to destroy the reputation and life of Julius Nyang’oro (described by local media as being at the center of the UNC-CH academic scandal) is going to dissipate with a whimper instead of taking down another innocent victim with a bang.  nn

UNC-CH Hairston scandal
Word count:  835
As far as scandals go, the one involving the abhorrent mistreatment of UNC-CH round-baller P. J. Hairston far outweighs that which was spawned by the media about the African and Afro-American Studies program that was put in place by powers at UNC-CH to surreptitiously enable academically challenged athletes to remain academically eligible to compete in sports… particularly basketball and football.  The real scandal in the latter is that UNC system President Tom Ross is allowing the private law firm to conduct a worthless investigation at exorbitant hourly rates… this leading naturally to an increase in student tuition.
However, the P. J. Hairston saga was without doubt a tragedy that should never have happened… and one that could have been averted had the athletic department at UNC had a bulldog-like athletic director from the mold similar to NC State’s Debbie Yow.  The NCAA wouldn’t dare to pull such shenanigans with State knowing that Yow would stand up for her players… especially star players the caliber of Hairston who are capable of bringing championship trophies to school showcases and meeting incentives that increase her compensation.
As it was, UNC-CH allowed the parasitic, morally-lacking and avaricious NCAA intimidate it and invoke a season-long suspension of the Tar Heels’ leading basketball scorer P. J. Hairston.  The end result of this ridiculous ruling by that self-centered organization was that UNC-CH was removed from contention in the ACC and NCAA tournaments.  As well as the team did without Hairston, it would’ve done a heckuvalot better had he been on the hardwood.  Not only did the NCAA ruling destroy the Tar Heel season, but it was detrimental to Hairston himself.  Despite being selected in the first round, his prospects would’ve been much better had he been allowed to perform during his senior year… possibly propelling him into a top ten selection.  It is apparent that his play is NBA caliber, but the NCAA and the mainstream media have elected to represent Hairston as an irresponsible troublemaker lacking character.
What is sad is the phony reasons given for demeaning this student-athlete (who attended classes) and did everything he possibly could to appease the NCAA and be allowed to play his final season on the Tar Heel team he loved.  Evidently the NCAA was not impressed and imposed the season-long suspension for the following:  1) an arrest during a traffic stop for possession of marijuana (the charge later being dropped); 2) driving a rental car which is considered by the money-crazed NCAA as being a dreaded impermissible benefit; and 3) speeding.  Can you believe that?  What a joke!
The media is now trying to justify Hairston’s NCAA suspension by writing that he’s owning up to his mistakes.  A recent headline on the sports page of The News & Observer reads, “P. J. says he’s a better person:  Hairston says mistakes are in the rear-view mirror.”  What’s the big revelation about that?  Face it, everybody makes mistakes.  I made plenty of mistakes when I was younger… and with time, I matured… somewhat.  Driving a rental car paid for by someone else and speeding are not what I would consider serious violations worthy of draconian punishment meted out by the collegiate athletic overseer.  The action taken against Hairston by the NCAA was arbitrary, baseless, and cruel.
The same newspaper of June 28, 2014, contained another article titled “Manziel won’t tone it down,” in which Johnny Football, the star quarterback from Texas A & M, was unapologetic about his off-time weekend drinking and partying.  He claimed he was going to live life to the fullest.
NCAA parasites went easy on Manziel when it was disclosed that he had signed sports memorabilia and earned a reported $7,500.00.  For this violation he was suspended the first half of the first game of his last college football season at A & M.  Part of the laxness of his punishment might have been due to the fact that the NCAA was making big bucks off of selling Manziel’s jersey on its online site… a lucrative business transaction which it apparently stopped after it was revealed in the media.  But, that’s the creed of the NCAA – it’s okay for the NCAA to make big bucks off of Manziel, Hairston, and other college athletes but it would be considered an illegal impermissible benefit for the athletes themselves to do so.
I believe that the all colleges and universities would be better off by kicking the NCAA to the curb and building from scratch its own regulatory agency… one that would have the best interests of the athletes in mind and one that would do away with the “impermissible benefits” concept which is ethically conflicted.  Also, I believe that some of the enormous profits generated by college sports programs should go towards compensating those responsible for it… the athletes.
Unfortunately, under the NCAA, P. J. Hairston and subsequently UNC-CH’s basketball team needlessly suffered.  Even media articles directed towards justifying the barbaric treatment of Hairston by the NCAA cannot conceal that fact.  nn

Change the name!
Word count:  399
Washington Redskins owner Daniel Snyder has been unyielding in his determination to retain the “Redskins” name for his NFL professional football team.  And it seems as though he has picked up a few supporters including former Redskins manager Joe Gibbs who claims the name has been positive for him.  In an Associated Press article by Gary B. Graves, Gibbs is quoted as saying: “Never once did I hear anybody ever say anything negative about the name Redskins.  It was always prideful, it was courage involved.  We have a song, ‘Hail to the Redskins,’ and so everything, everything, about that name has been positive for me and my past.”
Also circling the wagons around Snyder on this issue are three Virginia legislators (Sen. Chap Petersen, Delegate Jackson Miller, and Delegate David Ramadan) who are forming a “Redskins Pride Caucus.”  What a pathetic waste of time and effort… sounds like something North Carolina legislators might do.
The majority of civilized America, including a vast number of politicians and the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office find that the Redskin name is disparaging to Native Americans and should be changed.  Most important, Native Americans find the name to be demeaning and offensive.
What the Native Americans believe is overwhelmingly what should be taken into consideration.  What Joe Gibbs thinks is irrelevant as he is not a Native American.  So what if he finds the name Redskins to be prideful…?  Who cares?  And the three member Redskins Pride Caucus, to my knowledge, is not comprised of any Native Americans.  But this threesome professes to be standing for the all-important principle of “commercial freedom”… which in a capitalistic society readily trumps morality, compassion, and common sense.  Again, I say who cares what the Redskins Pride Caucus thinks.  It is without Native American representation and therefore its position on the issue is irrelevant.
What I would propose to Mr. Snyder is changing the name from “Redskins” to “Warriors.”  Washington Warriors… that has a catchy sound, and it would enable the team to retain its current logo.  It is the word “Redskins” after all that is problematic, and a reasonable person would be able to understand that.  Being an African American, I am naturally more empathetic with the Native Americans’ position than is Mr. Snyder… however, it’s past time for him to walk a mile in someone else’s moccasins and re-evaluate his stubborn position.  nn

SIDNEY HARR tries to argue that Shan Carter, after he chased down Tyrone Baker and shot him, in the process killing 8 year old Demetrius Green, was acting in self defense,

How is that trying to correct an injustice?



Let me try to explain one more time about Shan Carter's situation. Tyrone Baker, a drug dealer from New York, had told the community that he intended to kill those responsible for stealing $40,000 from his apartment. Carter knew Baker was gunning for him. On that day in February 1997, Baker, after knocking down one of Carter's accomplices in the burglary, came towards Carter with a coat draped over his gun hand. Carter then fired two shots at Baker, both of which struck home. As Baker ran, Carter ran in the same general direction in order to take away the angle from a corner grocery store as cover from which Baker could return fire. To keep Baker motivated and on the move, Carter fired a couple of shots in Baker's general direction... none of which struck him. Unfortunately one bullet freakishly ricocheted off a steering wheel striking a young boy in the head... eventually leading to his death.

Comprende?

"

Explain once more? You have not explained it adequately yet.

"Tyrone Baker, a drug dealer from New York, had told the community that he intended to kill those responsible for stealing $40,000 from his apartment. Carter knew Baker was gunning for him."

In other words you admit you knew that Shan Carter provoked the confrontation. What you do not know is this: if one provokes a confrontation with another, he can not plead self defense if he causes the death of the other."

"On that day in February 1997, Baker, after knocking down one of Carter's accomplices in the burglary, came towards Carter with a coat draped over his gun hand. Carter then fired two shots at Baker, both of which struck home."

A lie on your part. According to court documents, Shan Carter admitted he aimed at the sidewalk when he fired the first two shots at Tyrone Baker.

"As Baker ran,"

Here you show you are a minimally trained, minimally experienced person with and MD degree inappropriately appended to his name. Shan Carter's illegally possessed weapon was a .357 Magnum pistol. An individual with a .357 Magnum slug in his thigh and in his chest would not have been able to run. Comprende?

"Carter ran in the same general direction in order to take away the angle from a corner grocery store as cover from which Baker could return fire."

Here you admit Shan Carter pursued Tyrone Baker after he fled(while you are unable to explain how a person with a .357 Magnum slug in his thigh and another in his chest would be able to flee).

"To keep Baker motivated and on the move, Carter fired a couple of shots in Baker's general direction... none of which struck him."

According to court documents Tyrone Baker was hit after he fled-he fell after Shan Carter pursued him and fired at him with an illegally possessed .357 Msgnum pistol. So you again lie.

"Unfortunately one bullet freakishly ricocheted off a steering wheel striking a young boy in the head... eventually leading to his death."

Which would never have happened had Shan Carter refrained from pursuing Tyrone Baker and had Shan Carter refrained from firing his illegally possessed .357 Magnum pistol at him.

"Comprende?"

Yes I do. You do not. These were two instances of felony murder.

What I do not comprehend is how or why you can promulgate obvious lies as the truth while knowing the real truth is on the web.

This seems awfully similar to garbage you spewed out about Crystal in the Reginald Daye murder case. When informed she was under arrest, she was read her Miranda rights. She declined to give a statement to the police. You tried to spin it as an attempt on the part of the police to prevent her from pleading self defense.

What is incomprehensible about you is that you expect people to believe your lies.

You tried to pick a fight with a security guard at Duke and then drag Professor Coleman into it. You tried to spin it as the Guard picking a fight with you and Professor Coleman intervening on your behalf.

What is sadder is you deliberately refuse to see the injustice in corrupt DA NIFONG indicting and charging three innocent men with a crime which never happened. What makes it more heinous is that he had evidence that none of the people he had charged had any kind of intimate contact with Crystal.

And you deliberately ignore the fact that corrupt DA NIFONG had no probable cause to charge any member of the Lacrosse team with rape or sexual assault or kidnapping.

PF Hairston was caught violating NCAA rules. But, because he is black he should have been given a pass. Because the Lacrosse players are Caucasian, they must not be considered innocent, even though the crime with which they were charged never happened.

Let ME explain Shan Carter's situation:

1) He's a convicted felon (illegal drug possession and sales), and should not have had possession of a firearm in the first place.

2) Carter stated "“I didn't want to shoot first..." and that “[Baker] ran and I went behind him shooting at him.”

This is NOT self defense.

3) Defendant's conviction of the first-degree murder of Demetrius Greene was based on a theory of premeditation and deliberation under the doctrine of transferred intent, and was also based on the felony murder rule with Baker's murder serving as the underlying felony. [State v. Carter (479A01)]

Shan Carter is a drug dealing, thieving, child murderer.

One of the requirements, if you will, for self defense is that he attacked person be within his legal rights, in a place where legally he can be.

Shan Carter, by your own admission, was on the street dealing illegal, potentially harmful drugs when Tyrone Baker showed up. Shan Carter was also packing an illegally possessed firearm.

How does that add up to Shan Carter being involved in legal activity? Using your own words, how does that add up to Shan Carter just minding his own business?

Let's get you stirred up about something else.

You insist that Crystal Mangum was the victim in the Duke phoney rape case. Victim of what?

Do you have any credible, factual evidence that she was the victim of any crime.

There is no evidence that she was the target of multiple racial epithets. That was something said by corrupt DA NIFONG before he ever investigated the case.

There was no forensic evidence she was raped in the manner she described.

There was no physical evidence she was raped or sexually assaulted.

Anonymous said...

SIDNEY HARR:

You have previously justified DA NIFONG's decision to prosecute members of the Lacrosse team with:

Crystal alleged she was raped;

Crystal idetified three assailants with 90%-100% ceretainty.

What you leave out is that Crystal's initial allegation went, Yes I was raped, no I was not, yes I was, no I was not befoe she settled in Yes I was. That does not add up to a credible allegation.

The two witnesses she identified with 100% certainty could prove with 100% certainty they had not been at the alleged crime scene at the time of the alleged crime.

She said the third assailant, whom she said 90% certainty was David Evans, had a mustache. David Evans never had a mustache. The notorious wanted poster depicting the Caucasian Lacrosse team members showed David Evans was clean shaven.

Crystal's identifications were unreliable.

So the question is, what justifies you calling Crystal a victim in the Duke phoney rape case?

The point I make is that Mangum was arrested prior to the police questioning her during the investigative stage. They didn't question her before deciding to arrest her, and once she was read her Miranda Rights it would have been pure folly to make any comment without consulting an attorney... although most attorneys available to her would've been turncoats and not done much good anyway.

Regarding the Duke discrimination incident, had Professor Coleman not have intervened, I would've been arrested by campus police on a trumped up charge.

As far as the Duke Lacrosse case, it has not been proven that she lied about being sexually assaulted. Proven lies are by M.E. Dr. Clay Nichols in his autopsy report and during his perjured testimony at Mangum's trial.

I don't believe Native Americans are offended by Chiefs, Braves, Indians, Blackhawks, or even Seminoles. Specifically the term "redskins" is what they find demeaning and degrading.

I believe that Stanford University used to call their team "Indians" but changed it to "Cardinals"? I'm not sure... but anyway, I don't think there was widespread objection by Native Americans to it. There is widespread disgust with the "redskins" name used by Washington, however.

Did corrupt DA NIFONG ever question any of the innocent Lacrosse players before he had them indicted or arrested? No. Did you consider it an irregularity? No. So what is your justification for saying Crystal should have been questioned before she was arrested? Probably your justification is that Crystal is a black woman who should have gotten a pass for her crimes.

Professor Coleman did not willingly intervene, according to the recording you posted. If you had been arrested, it would have been because you picked a fight with the security guard when he directed you to leave. You were on private property at Duke's invitation and you were required to leave if a Duke official wanted you to do so.

Is that your law or the law of the land? Where does it say that the police must question someone before taking that person into custody if they have probable cause to believe that person committed a crime?

And you dodge the issue, your boy, corrupt DA NIFONG, had three innocent men indicted and taken into custody without ever questioning them.

How does that sdd up to the police have to question someone before taking him or her into custody?

Yes it has. Read the AG's report.

'Proven lies are by M.E. Dr. Clay Nichols in his autopsy report and during his perjured testimony at Mangum's trial."

No they aren't. The pronunciations of a minimally trained, minimally experienced person with an MD degree inappropriately appended to his name prove nothing.

Not surprising since said person adds up to less than nothing.

Is it your position that if Shan Carter had shot Tyrone Baker while in the act of burglarizing Tyrone Baker's apartment, he should have been allowed to plead self defense?

You are again putting up a straw fisherman holding a red herring.

What precluded self defense includes 1) Shan Carter provoked the confrontation 2) he chased down Tyrone Baker and shot him while he was fleeing.

What made it felony murder was that he committed the murders while committing a crime. He was pursuing Tyrone Baker while in possession of and using a firearm, a felony for a convicted felon.

What made the killing of Darius Greene felony murder was that Shan Carter fired the killing shot while he was perpetrating a felony.

Thus be enlightened.

It most certainly has been proven that she lied about being assaulted. Mangum told multiple, inconsistent and mutually exclusive stories. Many of her claims were directly contradicted by eyewitnesses and/or physical evidence (or lack thereof).

There is word that describes this sort of behavior. It is called lying.

Mangum lied about being assaulted. Insisting otherwise does not help her in any way.

If Mangum was telling the truth about being assaulted why didn't she sue anyone for what happened to her, like the lacrosse players she falsely accused did?

Sid - you claim that Nichols committed perjury on the spleen (ignoring it could have been a mistake). Did Crystal commit perjury when she said that Daye had never struck her prior to that night?

By your own statements, you are claiming she LIED under oath, so why should anything she says be trusted?

Mangum was not prepared by her attorney to take the stand. He was not prepared to represent her. Most importantly, her attorney Meier was a turncoat. It is my belief that he persuaded her to lie about Daye's previous abusive behavior by convincing her it would be to her benefit.

Unfortunately Mangum placed her faith in Meier and that was her downfall. She should've listened to me.

As far as Dr. Nichols goes, he committed perjury. No ifs, ands, or buts about it. He LIED!!

The entire vendetta-driven prosecution was based on the big lie of Dr. Nichols... his fraudulent autopsy report on Daye and his perjured testimony.

I don't believe that just because George Washington may have been a racist, that the name of the nation's capital should be changed. This is not the same as the "redskins" NFL name issue. They are very different. Like comparing apples and eggplant.

With regards to your last comment, I am confused as to what point you are trying to make. More elucidation is required.

Not all victims of sexual assault file civil lawsuits against the perpetrator... even if convicted. Sometimes the trauma of a trial is not worth winning a monetary award.

Just because someone changes their story does not mean that they lied... especially in an emotional attack. The victim may remember things later that contradict what they thought earlier. Or, confusion of thought by alcohol or drugs may have cleared.

I do not know what specifically changed in Mangum's Lacrosse case as I do not have prosecution discovery... and I believe that the Attorney General has sealed all of that evidence. Ergo, I cannot speak directly to your question.

The time for police to question Crystal or any potential criminal suspect during the investigative phase is prior to taking them into custody. Once arrested and read Miranda Rights, the person under arrest should not speak to police because they will use what is said against him/her.

And it is your belief that innocent members of the Lacrosse team raped Crystal. What you believe is worth less than your negative value IQ.

"Unfortunately Mangum placed her faith in Meier and that was her downfall. She should've listened to me."

If she had placed her faith in you, she would have been convicted of Murder 1 and given a sentence of life without parole.

"As far as Dr. Nichols goes, he committed perjury. No ifs, ands, or buts about it. He LIED!!"

Considering your legal reputation, which is worth less than your negative IQ and your beliefs, you are not qualified to make that statement.

There was no vendetta driven prosecution of Crystal. Said vendetta is a figment of your deluded megalomaniacal imagination.

Well, Crystal did tell people at the Platinum Club that the white boys were going to pay her. Trial Lawyer Willie Gary did consult with her and then left town.

Crystal did not sue because she did not have a case. Had she sued she would have exposed herself to cross examination and would have had to admit to being a false accuser.

Except Crystal, according to the officers who initially interviewed her, was not in a highly emotional state.

"The victim may remember things later that contradict what they thought earlier. Or, confusion of thought by alcohol or drugs may have cleared."

Crystal contradicted herself multiple times in her initial interviews with the police, right from the start, not later. There is no evidence she was given any drugs at the party. There is evidence she was impaired before the party.

"I do not know what specifically changed in Mangum's Lacrosse case as I do not have prosecution discovery..."

Who do you think you are fooling. It is a matter of public record that the innocent Lacrosse players were charged with first degree rape, sexual assault and kidnapping.

"and I believe that the Attorney General has sealed all of that evidence. Ergo, I cannot speak directly to your question."

The only thing sealed was Crystal's mental health record. Everything else was a part of the public record. You are not commenting because you have no credible, factual evidence Crystal was ever raped.

So far as you spouting off about being a retired physician, you are actually a minimally trained, minimally experienced person with an MD appended to your name. Your opinions on the justice of Crystal's conviction and on what you call the fraudulent autopsy report count less than your negative IQ.

Has she told you that, or are you pulling it out of your ass, like everything else you do? Odd that you and Mangum are lofting allegations, but she isn't filing a formal complaint, which would waive attorney/client privilege, and let Meier actually talk about what was, and was not, discussed. She's not as stupid as you, clearly. You can make all the allegations you want, and none of her attorneys can (or likely care to) defend themselves.

"Just because someone changes their story does not mean that they lied..."

Not only did Mangum change her story repeatedly, her stories were inconsistent and, in some cases, mutually exclusive. Her stories were also contradicted by the evidence and eyewitnesses.

Mangum lied about being raped. Claiming she didn't does nothing to help her in her murder case. It only makes you and Mangum less believable.

Did you find Mangum's written statement in connection with the lacrosse case, dated April 6, 2006, to be credible?

A link to that statement has previously been made available to you.

Dr. Harr,

It is amazing that Duke can continue with their obstruction of justice and truth in these cases, when what they are doing is plain for all to see.

Why do you think Duke insists on deluding themselves and the public on a continuous basis even while they cause more harm?

It is like they are trying to condition the public in accepting any lie they push because that is the new 'norm' - their lies and harm have become the new acceptable and politically correct way of doing things and of the way things are to be (or else).

Do you agree with that?

How can Duke continue their blatant harm and lies, insisting that this IS justice and the way Americans should accept as 'the way it is because it's Duke and it's the way they are - so it's the way things will be to appease them irregardless of the constitution or laws or ethics or morals ... or else'. Why should the public accept their lies and harm?

They sit there and watch to see how much of their bs people will accept, repeatedly increasing the gravity of harm, and then deny all the while dishing more harm to even more.

Why do you think they do what they do repeatedly and as if they are right when all can see clearly they are not?

BZZZZZZT, ladies and gentlemen, we do not have a winner. The law is anything and anytime you speak to the police, that statement may be used against you in court. NC Evidence Rule 801(d) and Fed. Ev. Rule 801(d) see also NC and Federal rules 607 and 613. The Miranda warning only applies to custodial interrogations.

That is not the position the anonymous poster has taken. However, Shan Carter lost his right to defend himself with or even have possession of a firearm. Such are the penalties for a felony conviction. Of course if Carter had not been violating our gun laws, young Demitrius Greene would not be dead and Carter would not be on death row.

Yes, she was. Unfortunately, she disregarded his advice and told a story on the stand that was unbelievable.

No he was not a turncoat. The only turncoat in this saga is Sidney Harr. It was Harr who violated a confidence and disclosed that the defense had no evidence of medical malpractice.

"It is my belief that he persuaded her to lie about Daye's previous abusive behavior by convincing her it would be to her benefit."

A belief supported by no facts what so ever.

"Unfortunately Mangum placed her faith in Meier and that was her downfall. She should've listened to me."

What you meant to write was "Unfortunately Mangum placed her trust in Harr, who proceeded to disclose information that harmed her case, file frivolous motions that harmed her case and in general did everything possible to get her convicted of murder." FTFY.

"As far as Dr. Nichols goes, he committed perjury."

Again, you make a claim without a shred of evidence. What we do know is Nichols actually examined the body. Nichols actually is a licensed M.D. who actually practices medicine. I am forced to conclude that the real doctor who really examined the body is telling the truth.
