The North Carolina Attorney General, Roy Cooper, put the final nails in the coffin that was the Duke Lacrosse "rape" case on Wednesday. Cooper officially dismissed the charges of sexual assault that had been levied against the three former Duke Lacrosse players seen above; Dave Evans, Collin Finnerty and Reade Seligmann.
The Attorney general stopped short of declaring that the prosecuting Durham district attorney, Mike Nifong, was guilty of prosecutorial misconduct but did accuse him of being guilty of "a rush to accuse".
It's clear to me that Nifong was pursuing his own politically correct and politically ambitious agenda rather than the truth. He should be disbarred for prosecutioral misconduct and dismissed from his public office.
