Duke Lacrosse and the Games Democrats Play

Posted by Mike on April 12, 2007

After a thorough investigation, North Carolina Attorney General Roy Cooper has dropped all charges against Collin Finnerty, Reade Seligmann and David Evans, the Duke lacrosse players who were falsely accused of rape by stripper Crystal Gail Magnum. (Don’t worry, the link is innocuous). In his strongly worded statement, Cooper slammed District Aootrney Mike Nifong for his bravado in pursuing the case despite overwhelming evidence that the young men were innocent.

So how did such a weak case ever see the light of day? The answer is simple. Mike Nifong, a North Carolina Democrat, was seeking re-election to his District Attorney position and thought it would be politically expedient to play the race card to win the Democratic primary. Durham North Carolina is a locality with a large black population. Nifong thought that he could prosecute a case on behalf of a black accuser against a bunch of rich white kids “lucky enough” to attend Duke University. Of course it made no difference to the North Carolina Democrat that he had to abuse the legal process to railroad innocent people through the system.

This case was a miscarriage of justice. The media has done a pretty good job of making that clear. However, what hasn’t been covered is that this was also a case where a Democrat employed two of the most common plays from his party’s playbook: playing the race card from the bottom of the deck, and abusing the legal system to score political points. This time, three innocent men went through hell and almost went to prison for a long time. Maybe Democrats should start to reconsider the games they play with peoples’ lives.

    Just passed thru and enjoy your statement about the attorney. I must tell you the Democrats don’t learn from their mistakes and never will. Let me just say that my first encounter with one was as a young teenager in the late 60’s and I happened to be walking around my neighborhood of Washington Heights when all of a sudden this person puts out his hand to me and I shake it and then I recognized it to be Mayor Lindsey. HE said vote for me I said I can’t and that if I was old enough that I wouldn’t only for the fact because of him and his party my family was leaving for NJ to get away from all the Illegals and the high taxes and that he wasn’t going to do anything about either. The press were dumbfounded around him and that a boy of only 13 knew so much. Well I told them i didn’t go to public school but Catholic school to get a better education.

    I fought the Democrats for decades in NJ and voted against them at every chance. Now I am not a Republican but Conservative Independent. Both parties are corrupted from NY, NJ, and now VA and the main cause is all money and how much they can get from the people.

    Just remember they make the laws and they create the TAXES. My father once stated to me there WILL be another Revolution in this country. I can only hope these idiots in all the Fed, States and Local Government begin to realize that but they won’t they are looking for the next money stealing move.
