Next Time He Gets Carried Away, I Hope Someone Carries Him Away

From Philadelphia Daily News:

RALEIGH, N.C. – District Attorney Mike Nifong acknowledged Friday that he “maybe got carried away a little bit” in talking about the three Duke University lacrosse players who were once charged with raping a stripper, and he said he expected to be punished.

Original DVD cover.

Accusing innocent kids of rape and hiding exculpatory evidence is getting “carried away a little bit”? Maybe Al Fredo Gonzales “got carried away a bit” when he and Andrew Card barged into John Ashcroft’s ICU room. Perhaps this White House “got carried away a little bit” in the firings of U. S. attorneys. Yeah, I think “I got carried away a little bit” is the new “I don’t recall.” Let’s add it to the little black dresses of excuses. Has Chimpy gotten wind of Mike Nifong yet? There must be a judgeship that needs filling!
Is Lady Justice blind, or is it that she can no longer bear to look?

    Well, if he expects to be punished, he must not be a Republican. Maybe, the lacrosse team could spank him with their bats. The Lady Justice has traded in her scale for a barf bag.

    you hear so many times about prosecutors like this guy who are like a dogs with a bone. they refuse to admit they made a mistake, even when the evidence is so stark. even now he says:
    “Whether we feel it is exculpatory or not, I’m not denying they were entitled to have that evidence.”
    he can’t once and for all say that he screwed up, the kids were innocent, and he was blinded by ambition or whatever else drives these guys. i always wonder if these people (i shouldn’t say guys, because i am sure there are women who are just as guilty) started out in their professions as people who wanted to serve the public and the law and evolved into these sanctimonious pricks who feel they are above the law or if they started out as ambitious tyrants who care nothing for anything but their careers.

    ‘Blind Ambition’, high profile cases and name recognition are a few of their favorite things.
