If you haven’t read the 155-page filing on behalf of the three men victimized by now disbarred Mike Nifong, certain Durham Police officers, their supervisors, and other conspirators, try to find time this weekend to give it a read. (So far it’s only available in pdf form.)
If you can’t read the whole thing, check in with Durham-in-Wonderland, Liestoppers and The Johnsville News.
All three are providing great coverage.
Liestoppers has already reported the filing states the first detective assigned to the case said there was nothing to Mangum’s charges; and recommended the case be closed.
That’s when Sgt. Mark Gottlieb, the DPD detective with a sordid record of harassing Duke students, was brought into the case. Give the post a look here. (Hat tip: Jim in San Diego)
Then there’s No. 60 on pg. 21 of the filing.
I’ve retyped No. 60 here as it appears in the filing except that in the filing No. 60 is one paragraph.
Here I’ve presented it in separate sentence form, the better for us all to get an idea of just how “far out” false accuser Crystal Mangum was “orbiting” the night of Mar. 13/14, 2006; and just what sort of “evidence” she provided then Durham DA Mike Nifong and certain Durham Police officers and their supervisors for their attempted frame-up of three young men they knew were innocent.
No. 60Who’s fighting tonight for justice in Durham?
Mangum at one point told medical personnel at Duke Medical Center that she had been performing at a bachelor’s party, and that one of the alleged rapists was the groom.
She claimed that the groom did not want to have intercourse with her because he as getting married the next day.
Of course, there was no bachelor party at 610 N Buchanan, and there was no groom there either.
The attorneys who filed the suit today, and those who are supporting them.
