Tuesday was response day for Durham! Today we woke up to read how Durham responded to the civil complaint filed by Reade Seligmann, Collin Finnerty, and Dave Evans. Would official Durham take responsibility for the Hoax/Frame attempt? Would they show any remorse for attempting to frame three innocent young men for a crime that didn't happen?
Naw! Truthfully we all have come to expect what passes for responsibility in Durham and they didn't exceed our expectations. The Blog Hooligans were quick to dissect.
Buddy: "It seems to me that the argument is that the police can lie, cheat, and steal, but if the grand jury indicts all is forgiven. What am I missing?"
Longtabber: "And you didn't see this coming?"
JenniferN: "This is a joke right? Gottlieb's conduct was wrong and outrageous but since it didn't work - Elmo and Shelton didn't change their stories, there was no successful prosecution based on the "notes" or "line-up" - Gottlieb shouldn't be held responsible for any wrongdoing. BWA HA HA HA HA HA."
Chicagolacrosse: "Bran Bannon said it best. "How can everyone agree that "it" is wrong, yet no one is responsible for "it."
