ARE YOU KIDDING ME?




I read where the Duke lacrosse players have settled with Duke University for an undisclosed sum. That's fine, but I wouldn't have let them off the hook as easily as these guys did. Check out this quote from Duke University,

"We welcome their exoneration and deeply regret the difficult year they and their families had to endure."

They didn't have to endure anything. They were made to endure this "difficult" year because the gutless administration at this university allowed a group of their professors to jump all over these students and publicly convict them without any evidence. Instead of exercising some leadership and telling these jerk professors to shut up about something they didn't have information about, they allowed them to publish a letter filled with vicious, unfounded information and slurs against innocent students at their university. A privilege they paid over $30,000 to enjoy. The president and the rest of the administration at this university have no business being allowed to continue in their jobs, jobs that they miserably failed to do.

The adminstration at a university must protect the rights and safety of its students. This group failed to do so and allowed a group of their professors to attack three students thereby subjecting them to verbal attacks, ridicule, and threats.

Instead of allowing the university to buy its way out of their responsibility, they should fire the administration and the professors for malicious conduct. I always looked at Duke as a top shelf university. I now look at it as a sewer infested by viscious idealogues and gutless adminstrators who are afraid to make their employees at least maintain some semblence of decency and fairness. The fact that these people are getting a pass for this atrocity is sickening. Where is the mainstream media in calling for an accounting from this landfill of a university. Could it have to do with the race of the victims in this case? Surely not!

North Carolina Governor Mike Easley said it best "This was much more than a mistake."

Here's wishing a nice prison cell for Nifong and a very special friend named Bubba for a cellmate. Somehow I don't think they'll be very nice to a prosecutor in prison. They're loved about as much as the police.

If Nifraud thinks his troubles are over, he's got a rude awakening in store for him. He is going to get sued by the three young men and I've already heard rumours that criminal charges are not far behind.

Bubba the love gorilla has got special plans for Mikey I think...

The Duke administration is trying to cover their asses. Throw money at any problem. That is the answer to everything nowadays.

It will be a happy day when we hear about Nifong being the prom queen of cell block #9.
