HEY, EVERYBODY... LISTEN UP!
IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT!!

It was well past midnight when I decided to toss the towel. Some of the links on the Directory table haven't been hooked up, but the buttons in the text work... and that's what's important.

Study hard because there will be an exam.

Enough with the crying towel posts. They're not funny, and you've posted so many of them that didn't come true that your credibility as a prognosticator on legal issues is now nil.

Hey, Dr. Caligari.

Yes, I have fallen short on several predictions but I believe this is the beginning of the end of the wrongful incarceration of Crystal Mangum. What did you think about Representative Willingham's letter to NC DHHS Secretary Dr. Mandy Cohen? She ignored me, but do you think she'll ignore Mr. Willingham?

Sid,

Can you tell us when we might expect Mangum to be freed and exonerated?

Hey, Abe.

With letters like Representative Willingham's along with pending legal action by myself and Crystal, I am extremely confident that she will be released from prison by Christmas. I am more than 50% confident that she will be released by Thanksgiving. If Dr. Cohen moves reasonably time-wise regarding a review of Dr. Nichols' autopsy report, I would not be surprised if she was released by Halloween.

I would expect her exoneration would follow shortly after her release because she would not be released unless it can be proven that she's absolutely innocent... something of which the officials and state are already aware.

@ Dr. C and @ Sausage King: You two are informed and intelligent enough to know that that eminent Forensic Pathologist Dr. Cyril Wecht believes Reginald Daye's death was not a homicide. I suspect even Dr. Roberts would concede, given Wecht's expertise vs her own and that of Dr. Nichols, that this is the case. This information has been given to Gov.Cooper and to AG Josh Stein. My question to you two as Americans why it does not outrage you that an innocent person is being imprisoned for political reasons and to selfishly and sinfully save face for them.

As you know, I have often been critical of Dr. Harr's legal strategies but, when he first published Dr. Wecht's statement, I congratulated him and told him that, for the first time, he and Mangum had a potentially-winning issue.

I was then away from this board for a while but, when I returned, I found nothing had changed.
Why wasn't Dr. Wecht's affidavit filed in court as the basis for an MAR? Why is Dr. Harr wasting time with not one, but two frivolous lawsuits (the WRAL suit and the malicious prosecution case) instead?

Hey, Dr. Caligari.

I received Dr. Wecht's October 25, 2019 report on October 27th or 29th. On October 31st I manually filed on Crystal's behalf a MAR based on Dr. Wecht's report in Durham. The clerk of court's office used all manner of delaying tactics to keep the MAR from the judge (including burying it). I managed to force the MAR on the judge who denied it using esoteric legalese reasoning. The judge denying the MAR was trial Judge Paul Ridgeway... the same judge who continues to keep from Crystal Mangum the 18-page document he deemed relevant to her case at trial.

If you read the Malicious Prosecution Reply (to defendants' Motion to Dismiss) that is now in federal court, then I think you will appreciate its value. My lawsuit against WRAL-5 News, if successful as I expect, will accrue to Crystal's benefit as well.

@ Dr. Caligari: Why do you suppose Gov. Cooper and AG Stein have done nothing. Cooper is a Dr.of Law and Stein a Harvard Law School Graduate. They have all the facts. Dr. Harr is a retired physician who gets sanctioned by the Law Society while seeking justice for Crystal. This with the acquiescence of all those with the power and duty to see that justice is served. But, of course, that would come at the cost to them losing face. That's far more important to them than the life of a poor black mother of three who, thanks to the Duke Lacrosse Defense, this 'me too" heroine was made a pariah in the eyes of an uninformed public. Cooper caved under pressure from powerful interests and misled public opinion and in declaring the accused innocent made Crystal to wrongly appear to be a person worthy of disrespect. History will not be kind to those who knew the truth and did nothing.

Kenhyderal,
Please stop whining Instead, help Sidney hire a lawyer. With any luck, you can have Crystal's crime reduced to assault with a deadly weapon, which should get her out. But you and Sidney have to do something. And please, no more of that "I'm a man of limited means" junk.

September 12, 2020 at 3:56 PM


Hey, gui, mon ami.

As I said, hiring an attorney is not the answer. The answer for Mangum to receive justice may very well hinge on publicizing the truths of Mangum's innocence. Attorney's fees would be wasted as she has already made her case Pro Se.

Sid,

Are you really as inept as you appear to be?


September 13, 2020 at 7:03 PM


Hey, Abe Froman Supporter.

I am uncertain as to the "inept" meaning of your comment. For a reply, I would require more specification.

Meanwhile, I would be very much interested in your opinion about Representative Willingham's letter to NC DHHS Secretary Dr. Mandy Cohen. Do you think she will reply to him... a legislator?

In your opinion, do you feel that a review of Dr. Clay Nichols' autopsy report on Reginald Daye is warranted?

HEY, EVERYBODY... LISTEN UP!
IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT!!

Only four of fourteen links on the Directory page are operational. Time permitting they should all be working by day's end. This is not a crucial matter, as you are aware. Most important are the links in the text that do work.

Also, consider yourself enrolled in the Harr Law School. I plan on having an exam on the subject matter posted in the near future. Passing grades may even be rewarded with Certificates of Accomplishment. There will be more on Harr Law School in the future, where our motto is "We may not have the prestige of Harvard, but we have the spunk of UC Berkeley."

Sidney,
I'm glad to see that you finally got someone in some position of authority to look at the case,and ask the court to take another look. How much good this will do has yet to be seen.
My question is, why didn't you tell us about this sooner? This letter was written on September 9, and you must have known about it that same day,if not sooner. But instead of telling us then,you keep it a secret until you've put together some schlog. Apart from Willingham's letter, I see nothing in the schlog that you haven't told us about, many times, in the past.

Hey, gui, mon ami.

Actually, instead of the court, I am trying to get the NC DHHS Secretary to review the autopsy report by Dr. Nichols. Sure that you just misstated. It should not have been so difficult to get such a letter, but believe me... it was tremendously hard as groups such as NAACP, ACLU, NC Legislative Black Caucus, Southern Christian Leadership Conference, and others should have been willing to simply make a request... especially in light of Dr. Wecht's report. Anything involving Crystal Mangum takes courage because she has been so politicized, and I am deeply appreciative and indebted to Representative Shelly Willingham for his letter. Ideally it would not have been necessary had Dr. Cohen had the courage to respond to me rather than ignoring me.

Yes, Representative Willingham's letter is the substantially new tidbit in this shar-entry which was produced to put its importance into perspective. The real question I have is: Will Dr. Cohen respond to Representative Willingham? Another question, if she does is: Will she agree and order that Dr. Nichols' autopsy on Reginald Daye be reviewed? I would like to know what you think.

There was a slight delay, less than a week, before the letter by Representative Willingham was made public on this site, but it was not nefarious as may be interpreted from your comment. Because the letter was sent by a third party to a third party I just wanted it to be sure it was received before I published it publicly on this site. Just a courtesy; nothing more.

Hey, Anony.

Sorry to break it to you, but you're already enrolled. Every human being on this planet who is at least 18-years old is enrolled in the Harr Law School. But, unlike Trump University, no tuition is required. Now whether or not one elects to study assignments, turn in homework, or take examinations is up to each individual student. However, in order to receive Certificates of Accomplishment, make the Dean's list, or even receive a diploma, one's participation is required.

Haha, Anony. Very clever, and so funny I almost forgot to laugh.

HEY, EVERYBODY, LISTEN UP!
IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT!!

First, all of the links on this shar-flog are now operational.

Second of all, if I am able to figure out the code properly, an exam will be uploaded covering the course on Manner of Death 101. So study hard as it'll be a closed book test.

Third of all, there's more good new on Mangum's case... taking place next week. It'll be a tremendous breakthrough if things pan out as expected.

As you were.

Have you posted these documents somewhere? If not, how do you expect anyone to read it?

Also, what makes you think your lawsuit against WRAL will be successful? Can you post links to any documents from the case that support your expectation?
