The Wisdom of Irving Joyner

“I’ve been practicing law long enough to know that what ends up in a report isn’t necessarily everything that’s there…Just because [evidence] has been released, doesn’t mean that’s it,” - NCCU Professor of Law Irving Joyner, October 2006

Irving Joyner has been one of the biggest disgraces in this whole sorry affair. From the start, I can guarantee you that he sniffed out the hoax, yet helped to keep it alive solely for racial politics. More than anyone else, he could have steered the NAACP and others in the right direction, but instead decided to keep an obvious lie alive.

Other than Michael Nifong, Joyner has been more responsible for this hoax staying alive than anyone else. Of course, now that it is becoming obvious that Nifong has been lying (heck, it was obvious last March), I see Joyner is looking to jump ship, too.

All he cared about was being on the "winning" side. Compare him to Prof. Coleman, and you see who has integrity and who does not.

Irving Joyner: “I’ve been practicing law long enough to know that what ends up in a report isn’t necessarily everything that’s there. ... Just because [evidence] has been released, doesn’t mean that’s it,”

And I've been watching CSI Miami long enough to know that if what was in the report doesn't get disclosed to the court, then the court can't use it.

Now, if you excuse me, I need to get a box of Cap'n Crunch. Free law degree in every box!

9:50 if you believe everything that's made up by Hollywood than your free Cap'n Crunch law degree is only good for two things.

1. Fire wood

2. Bad Bathroom Reading.

Like a rat leaving a sinking ship, Joyner is dumping Nifong. The Dec 15 hearing was the last straw for Nifong excusers.

BREAKING NEWS FROM WRAL!!!!

Joyner is a scumbag, but apparently knew what he was talking about per reports. The rats that jump first are the ones who can swim.

RAPE CHARGES DROPPED

KIPNAPPING AND SEXUAL ASSAULT CHARGES INEXPLICABLY REMAIN...

They rest of the charges will fall soon. Nifong can't prove sexual assult without the rape charge. He is just looking for a way out. Without causing a roit in Durham.

What is Nifong going to say in court? She lied about sex, rape but is telling the truth about kidnapping? He's an idiot.

I told you before:

Mike Nifong didn't need DNA to prove RAPE & SEXUAL ASSAULT CHARGES.

He'll get them on at least one charge!

KIDNAPPING AND SEXUAL ASSAULT CHARGES STILL STANDS!!!!!!!!

James said...

True, he doesn't need DNA to prove a kidnapping charge, but he will need that pesky thing called a reputable witness, yet another thing he does not have. If the accuser cannot be sure that she was violently penetrated, how sure can she be that she was kidnapped and not just hanging out in the bathroom?

She can't say with for sure if she was rape sodomized and force to do oral sex? Yeah someone could forget that. But remember kidnapping? Nifong will drop each charge one at a time so not to upset his following. What a joke.

NCCU Law must be steller...it made it all the way to tier 4!

Irving Joyner's been practicing law long enough to know how racial narratives are used to eclipse facts in the courtroom

Jacob said...

I suspect that at least Professor Joyner knows how to spell "stellar."

Lord help us. I have a friend on the NCCU Law Faculty. I must tell him to have Joyner change his medication.
