I think that it is a shame that District Attorney Mike Nifong's career has been stained by this one case. He has admitted that he made some mistakes -- we all make mistakes in our lives, some more than others. Some can tear up the lives of others for the rest of their lives. Why can't all the "haters," especially those who have made mistakes, leave this man alone?
It's interesting that none of these fine people who hate Nifong saw injustice in Durham until this lacrosse case, which has dominated our news here in Durham and around the country. It seems that some of the same people who hated Nifong before the November election are the same people who hate him now.
I did not know Mike Nifong before the November election, but I have come to know him as a human being. I also know that justice in this country should be tried in the courts and not in the newspapers and on television and on talk shows. I also know that justice should not prevail only for the rich. I am also sure that there is justice in this world because we have a "righteous and just God."
