Hoax Day

Today marks one year since the accuser made allegations of rape against members of the Duke lacrosse team.

A lot has haappened in the last year-- Nifong is off the case and facing suspension or disbarrment, the accuser's credibility is in shreds, there is increasing evidence of a police conspiracy, and we know much more about hidden DNA evidence that exonerates the players.

What remains, however, are felony kidnapping and sexiual offense charges against Collin, Finnerty, Reade Seligmann, and Dave Evans. They and their families have had legal bills of $3 million and no end in sight.

The special prosecutors have had the case for two months now and they are following the pattern of delay that has marked this case.

It's time to drop the charges.

While Special Prosecutors Coman and Winstead are reviewing the case, Cooper himself stated that he would make the final call on whether to drop the charges.

I urge you to e-mail Atty. Gen. Roy Cooper at (form at bottom of page):

Or even better, write or fax him a letter, or call his office:

9001 Mail Service Center
Raleigh, NC 27699-9001

Telephone: 919-716-6400 • Fax: 919-716-6750

Thank you, Sceptical. I will do just that.

And thank you, Joan, for keeping on this. It's a sad anniversary today but I'm stubborn enough to believe the next one will truly see justice.

Here is correct e-mail link for Atty. Gen. Cooper:

Today I am gripped by sadness and thus the Black & White Toon. There is no color in my universe. While I do have high hopes these charges will be dismissed soon, I cannot but think of the guys and their families and what they have had to endure.

My Hope is that the Dream Team will be united in Prison where they can spend their days making false charges on each other.

Thanks Baldo!

Looks like they're ready to celebrate with all those leftovers from D.A.M.N. Appreciation Week!
