Prosecuting the Prosecutor

The North Carolina State Bar has bitten the bullet and is after prosecutor Michael Nifong, whose conduct in trying the Duke University lacrosse players falsely accused of rape in the press, apparently for electoral advantage, has been a racially- and politically-motivated disgrace.

Now the Duke Trustees should look into the disgraceful conduct of Richard Brodhead, Duke's President, who joined the lynch mob attacking his own students, rather than taking a careful look at the facts.

Racial animus is apparently considered enlightened, when directed at crac . . ., I mean white folks.

UPDATE: A detailed, knowledgeable discussion of the State Bar charges here.
