John In Carolina

One of the Bloggers that we read everyday is John In Carolina. His investigative reporting on the Duke Lacrosse Hoax case has been excellent. His articles on CrimeStoppers Cpl David Addison are of the quality that should be in the Washington Post.

Today he has an article about will the Feds ever come to investigate. We urge you to read it!

"A police-state frame-up attempt which was carried out over many months, involved dozens of co-conspirators and sought to put three innocent young men in prison for decades is a horrible thing to learn about. It makes decent people angry and concerned for their safety when in the hands of the law.

But we don’t know a quarter of all that was done to first trash the lacrosse players and generate public anger against them; and then to pick three of them for a frame-up that would send them to prison for most of the rest of their lives.

When the public learns more of what happened, especially the many lies we were told and the deliberate crimes that were committed, all that won’t mean much to the sort of people who go to pot banger rallies and circulate “Vigilante” posters.

But decent people are going to be angry and they’re going to demand something be done.

Public awareness followed by public pressure will, at some point, force the Feds to come to Durham, something they should have done long ago." John In Carolina

LieStoppers want to commend John. He is someone who should be read daily. When he isn't commenting on the Duke Lacrosse Hoax you will still get a mighty fine education on Winston Churchill!

I agree with John, but all of this is pointless if you don't prosecute the scum that started all of this: Crystal Mangum.

You can't stop false accusations without locking up false accusers.

I find Mayor Bell's quotes to be preposterous, and offensive. How all of these people can lie and deny facts of massive corruption, just boggles the mind! The crimes of guilt exceed the LAX case, and goes back much further into Durham's notorious past.

These people deny the truths, then when forced to comment, always use excuses. I am sick of excuses! The "BULL" in Durm has existed far too long, and is beyond just having Washington leaders peer in and have a "Look-See."

My family has waited almost 3 years needlessly for an investigation to be done into my brother's murder. Other families have suffered the same cruel fate at the hands of the courts, officials, and law enforcement. There are no reasons big enough to convince us "THEY" care, and are "moving forward?!"

I have personally sent hundreds of FOIA requests, spoken to every department and official in legislature but the president, and have still been ignored. They know all about me, and am quite sure I have been a burr in their saddles.

WHEN, the FEDS finally decide to move to action, I am nationally requesting my own personal meeting to take my testimony of the abuses and abject denial of due process of law, and the numerous personal and civil rights violations.

THIS is why I have had to come forward into the blogosphere to have a voice. I have not made my quest a secret, and am not alone.

Far more than Duke University has been touched, actual lives have been destroyed. The respect and dignity of an entire city and state has been greatly tarnished, and most of all our leaders in federal government have failed us all immensely.

The clock on the wall has silently ticked away long enough, and is anxiously awaiting for the alarm. So are we!

Defense attorney's all know: The first one to roll gets the best deal

The problem for the frame up future defendants is that all of their actions have been recorded in detail. Most of the key players have recorded hours of interviews and statements with the State AG office and the NC Bar. The Feds do not need to offer anyone a good deal.

Most of the key hoax players are lawyers and police. They know the score and like the rats they are, will not be going down on the SS Nifong.

Agreed JinC is a very good blog as are each of the Duke related sites. Each with their own personality and each adding to the discussion I just can not seem to tear myself away from.

Nice of everyone to go to bat for a bunch of misogynistic pigs that created their own problems.

Yadda yadda yadda -- same old broken record. I'm betting that when that 18-year-old girl said she was raped at the house of a Duke fraternity that only allows African-American males to join, you called her a "slut" and suggested that she, too, "created her own problems."

John is really amazing. His work on Addison deserves a Pulitzer. But then again considering the state of journalism that might be an insult.

7:51 - let us hear your comments on AA fraternity party where the young (white) lady was allegedly raped -- what did they bring on themselves (as far as I've seen, there has been no outcry from race/class baiters)?? And how about the 6 AA's in Jena Alabama that beat a (white) student unconscious -- what did they do to deserve an outcry of support from the race/class crowd?
