At Liestoppers today Baldo does his usual wonderful job cartooning Nifong and Joan Foster has a poem that asks what we all ought to be asking Duke's and Durham's leaders:
What's the price for thirty million lies?LS has a bumper sticker that says it all about Nifong.
Your name disgraced, your face despised?
Nifong, professors, pundits, press...
Baker "stands behind" Crystal's 5-tale mess.
And there are all those Nifong mug shot prints.
But don't let those mug shots stop you.

Now questions for Liestoppers’ legal team:
If DPD Officer Ben Himan turns state’s evidence and admits he saw someone conspiring with DNA Security owner Brian Meehan to withhold evidence exculpatory for the Duke lacrosse players;
and when Himan’s shown a photo array of 7 mug shots, he immediately points to one and shouts, “That’s the guy; that’s the guy who wanted the evidence kept out of Meehan’s report;”
could the state use Himan’s photo ID to get an indictment even if all 7 photos were of Nifong?
What if the photo “lineup” had been approved by Durham City Manager Patrick Baker and DPD Deputy Chief Ron Hodge? Would that make a difference?
Also, would it make a difference if the Durham City Council and Duke’s senior administrators and Board of Trustees all knew about the ID setup and raised no objection to it?
Could Nifong later bring a suit, claiming he’d been framed?
Please take your time before answering. The last thing Durham needs is another rush to judgment, racism and criminality.
The last one led to monumental injustices and has already cost the city and state millions, with some of the biggest bills for investigative travesties and crimes committed yet to be paid.
