Pile Of Duke-y

Nifong has been disbarred. Not saying he didn't deserve it, but his life as a lawyer and a prosecuter is over... At least for now... Not to mention the accused lacrosse players are going after him. Nifong will be lucky not to see jail time and/or be wiped out financially.

Speaking of the three young lacrosse players, their families are hundreds of thousands of dollars if not millions of dollars deep in legal debt from fighting an unjust accusation. Their reputations will always be marred due to false claims... Innocent or not, that stigma will always be attatched to them.

The Duke lacrosse team lost a season. A winning season. Every player on that team got punished by losing time out of their lives doing what they were good at.

The coach, Mike Pressler had to resign. He is now coaching at another college up north, but it's not Duke with the prestige that holds for some.

The university lost face, as well as an undisclosed settlement to the accused players.

What about the accuser? The girl who started all this. The stripper who made up a story in order to get out of a public intoxication ticket and possibly a DUI. The girl who falsely cried rape after having consensual sex with at least three other men within a 24 hour period. The person with the record which included theft, larceny, drug charges, attempted assault charges and so on. The girl who hurt Duke University in general, cost a team a season, cost a coach his job, cost three men their reputations and tons of money, and destroyed the career and life of a district attorney. What about Crystal Magnum?

Nothing. That's right. Nothing. No charge for filing a false police report. Not even a reinstatement of the PI or DUI. Nothing. The only one to walk away from this no worse for wear... The one who started it all.
Now, tell me how you feel about justice.

If a hooker dies in the forest, will anyone care?

How many lives did the hooker ruin first?

Oink.

First off- if I had the money those guys apparently have - and I were a guy of oinkish inclinations - or just a guy - I would have spent more money than what it would appear they spent if I had to be a pig for the night.

Secondly - now he (Nifong)knows what it feels like to be financially ruined by a bunch of lawyers - innocent or not.

Thirdly - I hope that those guys, the church affiliated university, and the parents will now turn their attention to the fact that this was how the "future leaders" of our country were spending their time (and probably scholarship money) - and be truly embarassed. No, they didn't deserve what they got, but boy they were hanging with some company that they had to know (I've seen the Duke admissions standards) had fleas....

Lastly - I think that if it's proven that anyone brings forth a bogus lawsuit they should have to serve the maximum penalty allowable for the crime they made up. That would stop a lot of this crap and save the taxpayers a bunch of money in the process.

Did I mention - Oink?
