Nifong Disbarred


A disciplinary committee says North Carolina prosecutor Mike Nifong will be disbarred for his handling of the Duke University lacrosse rape case...

The disbarment quickly followed a disciplinary committee ruling Saturday that Nifong broke numerous rules of professional conduct during his prosecution of three Duke University athletes falsely accused of rape.

This whole case has been very interesting. It, like Katrina, is a good example of what people should expect when they look to the government to protect them. The only reason this case has anywhere close to a happy ending is because the kids this guy picked on happened to be rich enough to fight it. The scary thing is, even though they could afford good lawyers he still managed to ruin their lives.

The government is not, will not, and has never acted in your or my best interests. The savvy citizen knows to protect himself first and trust the government to do it later.
