Prosecutor disbarred!

*guest blogger today

"The prosecutor in the Duke lacross rape case has been disbarred - about time!
"What a three-ring circus that became! Mike Nifong went after those three lacrosse players, trying to create a racial divide in Durham, just to get elected as District Attorney. He had no case and all but destroyed those three lives. Not to mention cancelling the entire season of lacrosse!
"Now, in addition to no longer being the District Attorny for Durham, he's been disbarred, with charges and civil suits to follow. I say more power to those families - take him for everything he's got!
"I'll be watching those trials for sure!"
- Heather Jennings, Duke Masters graduate and Clemson basketball coach

Prosecutor? Persecutor would be more like it. This was a clear case of greed and ambition racing far ahead of any semblance of clear thought.

"And creating a mess in the city of Durham in the process!!
Hard to believe anyone is really that STUPID!"

Durham, Duke University, all the individuals involved, their families and friends ... and it didn't stop there. The Hannitys and O'Reillys, the Jacksons and Sharptons, everyone with a partisan axe to grind took up the battle cry, further widening the nearly violent ideological divide that plagues our country. We were all exploited, the whole county lost.
