Will Nifong drop the so-called Duke rape case?

Tom Bevan:

Almost every single piece of evidence that has come out in this case has favored the defense. Even the cornerstone of the prosecution's case, the medical exam from Duke hospital that found the accuser had "injuries consistent with being raped and sexually assaulted vaginally and anally," now looks to be much less conclusive than what DA Mike Nifong (and the press and everybody else) made it out to be, especially now that court papers have been filed alleging the accuser "had sex with at least four men and a sexual device in the days immediately leading up to the off-campus party." That group includes the accuser's boyfriend, whose seminal fluid is the only substance conclusively to have been found in or on the accuser so far, despite the fact she told police that the thirty-minute long gang rape she claims took place in the early morning of March 14 did not involve the use of condoms.

In other words, the DA's case is in shambles. As I've written before, however, Nifong's determination to proceed with this case, despite botching the identification process and indicting at least one player who has a seemingly air-tight alibi Nifong seems to have been unaware of, puts him in the disastrous position of having become personally invested in the outcome.

The stripper originally claimed that the second stripper helped with the rape! is only the latest of a long string of evidence that conflicts with DA Mike Nifong's hopes that a rape occurred in Durham.

Just when you think this case hit rock bottom, there’s about 50 feet of crap, then you find a sub-basement where in the corner Mike Nifong is clutching this case like “Gulum”, from the movie Lord of the Rings, clutches the “ring of power”.

If Mike Nifong doesn't get disbarred after this, then there really is a corrupt system in Durham that protects rich white guys. In Nifong's case - stupid rich white guys with transparent political agendas, but maybe I'm wrong. Maybe Nifong can turn a pig's ear into a silk purse.

What's wrong with Mike Nifong! Okay he made a mistake claiming these boys were guilty before any evidence came back supporting the claim, then he refuses to see compensatory evidence that proves these boys are innocent, instead, he's attacking these boys on any level he can just to hurt them?

Nifong is no genius, and calling him a "jacka$$" would be an insult to all jacka$$es everywhere, but if integrity, morals, or ethics were on the SATs then his score would have been in the negatives.

A great place to view that unbiased facts is:

Said it in a previous post. There is simply a huge concern that there will be a race riot if the case is dropped. That's the way blacks respond to this kind of situation. If it doesn't suit them - RIOT !!!

I've noticed that too, but not all blacks riot, just those who want a new big screen TV.

I love cherry pie, but I don't like cherry picking. Some people are trying to claim that the defense attorneys are cherry picking, but I don’t see it.

Much of the information Mike Nifong leaked wasn't so much cherry picked as it was artificially made by him personally (i.e. date rape drug, his reasoning of no DNA match, etc...).

Maybe Nifong is just clumsy and trying to make a pie, which would explain why he has egg on his face.
