Thoughts on Mike Nifong’s Disbarment (and why he should be executed)

Mike Nifong, the prosecutor who falsely charged undergraduate students at Duke University with rape in order to help his re-election campaign, was disbarred this afternoon. He had already resigned, from the witness stand, yesterday.

I am happy this much has been done, but generally saddened by what has not and will not be done.

  • I regret that Mike Nifong will not be imprisoned for his crimes.
  • I regret that Crystal Gale Mangum, Nifong’s co-conspirator, will not be charged.
  • I regret that Jesse Jackson, who offered to pay Crystal Gale’s bills even if she was lying, will not be charged.
  • I regret that the above three thugs will not be prosecuted as sexual predators and be listed as such, for the sadistic way they used the sex act to terrorize youths.

For that matter, I regret that Mike Nifong will not be executed by the State of North Carolina.

Capital punishment is both a harsh and a severe punishment. It justly reflects society’s verdicts that some crimes are so harsh they can never be undone or forgotten, while it humanely avoids caging persons like dogs for decade upon decade. It reduces crime, saving innocent lives for every guilty life taken.

Some new core states, like China, execute corrupt officials who pervert justice for their own ends. Thus reduces corruption and increases public trust in government. However, Mike Nifong’s nightmarish rule as prosectur shows (as if there were any doubt) that terrible corruption is not limited to places “over there,” but exists here in America, as well.

It’s been said that “the new Core sets the new rules:” in other words, the days of Europe influencing foreign laws are ending while the days of successful, developing countries influencing the world has started. Let’s hope this is the case. Let’s hope that in the future, criminals like Mike Nifong can get the justice they deserve.

Racism and Sexism at Duke University

With Mike Nifong‘s and Crystal Gail Mangum‘s attempted lynching of the Duke University students continuing to unravel, a mob of activist University professors accidentally becomes right. Ann Althouse, Durham in Wonderland, Instapundit, and La Shawn Barber are on the case.


Criminals

The Group of 88 faculty’s original letter began as follows:

Regardless of the results of the police investigation, what is apparent everyday now is the anger and fear of many students who know themselves to be objects of racism and sexism, who see illuminated in this moment’s extraordinary spotlight what they live with everyday. They know that it isn’t just Duke, it isn’t everybody, and it isn’t just individuals making this disaster.

But it is a disaster nonetheless

Indeed. While the Group of 88 was focused on joining the lynching party, their words are ironic now. They can be used to describe the racist and sexist attitude of the administration of Duke University and Durham County.


Victims

Dennis Mangan writes bluntly:

Anyone white and male would have to be a fool to attend Duke. There’s some sign, as outlined in the article, that the president of Duke is coming to realize his gigantic fuckup – a criminal fuckup. No one in his right mind should go there, nor should his parents send him.

The situation may not be quite bad, but it certainly isn’t good. Perhaps Durham is in the Gap, after all.
