Grand Jurors Speak Out on Duke Rape Lacrosse Case Fiasco … Nifong’s Nightmare


Its bad when the public has become confused regarding the facts of the Duke Lacrosse rape case and changes its mind; however, its terrible when grand jury members are puzzled, doubtful and express regrets …, that’s troubling. Two grand jury members spoke with ABC’s “Good Morning America.” The question is, would they have still voted for an indictment today?

Vote, should charges have been brought against the players?

When asked whether he would have made the same decision today to indict lacrosse players Collin Finnerty, Reade Seligmann and David Evans, the first grand juror said he had second thoughts.

“Knowing what I know now and all that’s been broadcast on the news and in media, I think I would have definitely … made a different decision,” he said to ABC News.

“I don’t think I could have made a decision to go forward with the charges that were put before us. I don’t think those charges would have been the proper charges, based on what I know now,” he said.

In contrast, the second grand juror said he did not regret the decision to indict, but he said that he now had new doubts based on what he had learned as the case had unfolded.

“I don’t know for sure whether she was raped, you know, because of everything that … came out,” he said. “I’m not sure, to tell you the truth.” (ABC News)

From Durham in Wonderland, “If the indictments themselves were illegitimate, what does this say about the integrity of the case?”

      I stuck a fork in it, and it isn’t done.

      These three boys had their lives destroyed by a false claim of rape. The problem of false rape claims can not and should not be ignored. Too many lives have been destroyed.

      Don’t let feminist succeed in quieting the Nifong Rape Case. Feminist have been trying to spin this case to be a victimization of the hooker, then of women, then of how these boys deserved being accused because they hired a stripper, to now where feminist just want to quietly sweep everything under the rug and pretend nothing happened.
