The amazing and magnificent Durham in Wonderland site examines Mike Nifong’s January 16 response to the Bar in all its evasions, half-truths and frightening ramifications.
For example, the assertions are described thus:
I have some questions about this entire appalling miscarriage of justice.
“” . . . that the Meehan report “was a summary report, which I would define as a report that states what tests were performed and either lists all positive results (i.e., those in which something is revealed) or states that there are no positive results.”
Alarmingly, the district attorney states that this type of report has “always” been the type that he has requested “in my 28+ years as a prosecutor,” that Meehan’s was “the type of report with which I have always dealt in cases involving forensic testing.” This admission begs the question of whether Nifong has engaged in games of hide-the-evidence previously.’
What is the State Attorney General’s office actually doing and, given the 3 indicted INNOCENT young men’s right to speedy justice, why are they taking so long?
And, since Nifong apparently IS represented by counsel, why did they let him write the January 16th letter – on office stationery no less – and why have they not acted to restrain him from offering continuing conflicting excuses for his shoddy behavior?
This case has stunk to high heaven from the very outset and it is definitely not improving with the passage of time.
