Brooklyn Bridge For Sale, Call Mike

"She probably did not speak 15 words. She had trouble making eye contact. She looked like she was going to cry." - Mike Nifong on the accuser's "emotional" state in his only meeting with her, ever, four weeks after the alleged assault. N&O October 27, 2006
Flashback:
[GRETA] VAN SUSTEREN: Jim, what compelling piece of information do you think Nifong has to keep this indictment going forward?
[JIM] HAMMER: "Here's what I suspect. Here's what I suspect. None of us has looked this woman in the eye. This guy has, Greta, and that's not enough I'll tell you but I've looked victims in the eye and although they've made prior inconsistent statements because they were under the influence of something or frightened or recanting, I've looked a person in the eye and said "I believe this person." I would not prosecute a case unless I did." Fox News June 27, 2006

da at the Platinum Club! No wonder he didn't look her in the eye! LOL

In my house, having trouble making eye contact does not mean you're traumnatized - it means you know you've done wrong......

Is it possible that Mike missed the dancing part of 60 Minutes

He's a real dope! I totally convinced now.

A DA, who also is the lead investigator, never interviews any of the four involved. Huh?
By the way, she wasn't too traumatized to strip.
I also agree with the above poster. When my kids were young and wouldn't look me in eye, it was never a good sign. Generally, if I kept asking enough questions, the truth spilled out.

Maybe if he got up on the stage and stripped naked to pole dance with her he could look her in the eye.

Let us go back to Candy Clark's comments about DA's never speaking to defendants. That was just a bunch of smoke, because she had to know that Nifong is in fact the lead investigator on the case when she made those remarks.

"In the course of a case, the assistant district attorney and district attorney just don't talk to defendants. They just don't." Clark said. "Not in this case, not in any case."

Looking someone in the eye is not a requirement of a stripper. This case gets sicker by the day. There is never any meaningful progress made in these hearings. They are smoke screens to make the public think that the judge is really doing his job. If he had a real fire lit under Nifong he would give him a day certain to be ready for trial and to have his little pole dancing baby girl ready as well.

Great catch, Liestoppers! Nifong is, dare I say it, SCREWED!! Big-time! Even if he wins (GOD forbid), he's screwed...his days are numbered...

Has Jim Hammer EVER said anything that was correct? That's what I want to know.

Newport said...

The reason that she couldn't look him in the eye is that she is a shameless LIAR, and was probably scared to death of facing Nifong with her lies. I'm sure she didn't think Nifong could care less about the lies, she was probably as shocked as we all are that he prosecuted this case on her word. It's not that hard to see if you open your eyes.

Apparently if you donate $0.01 to Nifong's campaign via his paypal link he will have to pay 29 cents to process it...check out KC's boards.

Anyway, it would be a fun mass mailer...fun as in watching him not have an online 'donation' system.

You know, I said it on TL...if he is still spouting this LIE that he never spoke to her about the case, well, just imagine how MISERABLY that discussion went? Because it's blatently obvious that OF COURSE he spoke to her about the case! He's lying about it because when he heard her fantastic story, even he could see how FULL OF SH*T she was...but he couldn't and still can't give up on his rape case and his Precious, so he has to try to sell us this worthless bill of goods, because the alternative would be DEVASTATING...'fessing up to having spoken to her about the case opens the floodgates for him...projection here...as she was telling him the "story", she *couldn't* look him in the eyes, and she did end up crying, probably when he went medieval on her *ss from the bullsh*t she was feeding him...

I am hopeing that Joan Foster can come up with a song for us about Nifong never looking into the lying eyes of the accuser. It's sure to be a heartbreaker.

I'm thinking "hoax" is too mild a word for what this case is. Bigfoot was a hoax. This case is a travesty.

Hi Joan, maybe a tune along the lines of the Eagles' You Can't (Can!) Hide Your Lying Eyes. (Does Crystal dance to this, or something more along the lines of Rick James' You Dropped a Bomb on Me?) Sic Semper Tyrannus

Who has Nifong interviewed in this case anyway? Gottlieb? Why didn't his friend Lynwood just tell DA that Precious was stipping over at the strip club. He could have interviewed her at the Pole.

He has told so many lies now he can't keep the stories straight. In his latest version, how does he know the rape lasted only 5-10 minutes if he never spoke to Precious?

Liestoppers,

Please consider bringing back that Nifong Island cartoon. Nifong Island has shrunk since his summer vacation.

Dave Evans told the truth on May 15,2006, "You all have been told some fantastic lies...".

I hope Dave, Reade, and Collin sue the city of Durham dry.

Thank you boys for speaking the truth!
