Mike Nifong: The Victim

A nice little sympathetic piece on Nifong:

"He's probably under more pressure now than ever before," North Carolina Central University law professor Irving Joyner said. "You have three of the best defense attorneys in the state shooting after him, and you have the state bar that's filed a complaint about his conduct."

No. Being wrongfully charged with rape and facing 30 years in prison is 'pressure'.

Not a single quote from a North Carolina District Attorney demanding his recusal. Not a single quote from a member of the Ethics Committee of the North Carolina State Bar alleging his unethical violations.

The report relies upon opinions of the most vociferous and vitriolic critic of the defense and no other documented sources. Nice work, Julia.

UPDATE: Blue Star Chronicles is also illuminated. And LaShawn Barber always brings it home.
