She's a Ho Ho Ho

Via Fox News:

The exotic dancer who accused three former Duke lacrosse players of raping her at a house party has given birth to a baby, FOX News has confirmed.

None of the 45 Duke lacrosse players had their DNA liked to genetic material recovered from the dancer, though DNA of five other men was recovered at that time.

It is not yet know if embattled Durham district attorney Mike Nifong will order all the men in North Carolina tested from a match.

From what I read about the government and people of N.C. they would line up like sheep at a shearing. The dimmi government treats the citizens like retarded three year olds and they just bend over and take it. Maybe the term 'corn fed and inbred' applies.

Why, thank you, Scrapiron. My sister lives in North Carolina, and she doesn't match any of your colorful descriptives.

I guess all these folks are "corfed and inbred"

I've got a question for you, scrapiron... ever been here?

In a perfect world, Nifong's DNA would match the child's...

5? Why that kind of initiative and production are to be roundly applauded. This woman is the embodiment of American business.

Nifong is the precise reason why prosecutors shouldn't run for office. Once you start prosecuting the politics, instead of the can't quit in the middle of the wrong case.

Nifong bought Edsel stock and is trying to convince everyone on the showroom floor that it's a Ferrari.

News is that the head of the Lab that did the DNA testing testified under oath that he and Nifong decided not to tell anyone else about the fact that there was DNA in/on the "lady" (loose term - pun intended) that did not match the accused. Nifong purposely withheld information that was exculpatory from the defense. And I keep hearing that prosecutors would never cheat. What a load of crap.

Nifong's actions are proof positive (as if any are needed) against capital punishment.

Here is a clear case of probable prosecutorial misconduct--witholding exculpatory evidence, etc. There have also been demonstrated instances where prosecutors have witheld evidence in capital or first degree murder trials, only to have the wrongly accused/sentenced later exonerated.

The Duke students were able to hire good legal defenses. Very often, the victims of prosecutorial misconduct are not. Given the permancy of execution, and the possibility of misconduct on the part of the prosecution, the "act without recourse" (execution) should not be imposed.

So these Duke students will have to ask, as so many people have done in the past; "Okay, we're acquitted; where do we go to get our reputations back?".

1- Don't judge the state of North Carolina by Chapel Hill: there's a reason we refer to it as "The People's Republic". The denizens have an inferiority complex about Berkeley.

2- Why is this an arguement AGAINST capital punishment? The DNA evidence exonerates the accused. Evidently, there ARE methods to ascertain guilt or innocence with a beyond-reasonable-doubt level (and, when taken with other evidence, 'beyond all doubt' levels can be reached) of certainty. In fact, this is an arguement FOR capital punishment- a corrupt DA who was railroading innocent defendants has been caught out, and the accused will be released.
