Nifong Disbarred

It’s only the beginning.

District Attorney Mike Nifong will be disbarred for his disastrous prosecution of three Duke University lacrosse players falsely accused of rape, a disciplinary committee decided Saturday. Even the veteran prosecutor said the punishment was appropriate.

“This matter has been a fiasco. There’s no doubt about it,” said committee chairman F. Lane Williamson.

Nifong sat motionless, one hand resting over his mouth, as Williamson recounted how he engaged in dishonest and deceitful conduct. He said Nifong’s early comments about the case — which included a confident proclamation that he wouldn’t allow Durham to become known for “a bunch of lacrosse players from Duke raping a black girl” — were purposefully designed to boost his campaign for district attorney.

“At the time he was facing a primary, and yes, he was politically naive,” Williamson said. “But we can draw no other conclusion that those initial statements he made were to further his political ambitions.”

I hope those three families sue him and get a huge judgment against him, one that will keep him working for them for the rest of his life.

Nifong made “multiple, egregious mistakes” as he pursued the charges, but not intentionally, his attorney said in closing statements.

“It didn’t click,” Witt said as he tried to explain one of his client’s errors. “His mind is just his mind. That’s the way it works. It just didn’t click.”

Egregious but not intentional?  If that ain’t lawyerspeak I don’t know what is.  Also, how frigging offensive is his “It didn’t click” excuse?  Click with whom, the boys he tried to destroy, the lying whore with semen from five different men on her, none of whom were the defendants, or maybe he means it didn’t click with the bar.  All I know is, if the internet weren’t around, those three men would be in jail right now.

They should thank Al Gore.  :)

Harry Reid calls ILLEGAL immigrants “undocumented Americans.”

Via Hot Air, I snagged this video just in case Reid pulls it and somehow Hot Air explodes due to space invaders or something. More people should see and distribute this kind of material, it shows just how ridiculous the Democratic leadership in Congress is over issues that don't affect them, but will affect all of us.

What the hell? ILLEGAL immigrants are in no way "undocumented workers." That little word game was bad enough. Does this pompous ass really think he can shift the wordage and start calling them "Americans" this quickly? We haven't even accepted the first lie as the new label, why would we accept something this preposterous? You know it was intentional, he was reading off a script.

Look for other Democrats to either run screaming in the other direction from this, or to begin to embrace the phrasing themselves. If you hear it two or three times in the next few weeks, you'll know it's a new talking point.

What it is, in reality, is complete horse shit. Hey, secondary question - Where are the American reporters challenging Reid on this pile of festering crap he calls a label? If Bush says "nuke-you-lurr" it runs on all the wires and in every newspaper. Reid tries to slip one past us, further cementing some weird ideal that anyone who opposes ILLEGAL immigration is a nationalistic racist, and nary a peep from anyone but bloggers.

Oh, that liberal media.

Paris Hilton ordered back to jail

Schadenfreude is a German word meaning ‘pleasure taken from someone else’s misfortune’.

I am become schadenfreude.  Paris Hilton was released by the Shriff because she couldn’t “emotionally handle” being incarcerated.  Hey, guess what?  DON’T DRIVE DRUNK, YOU MONUMENTALLY STUPID AIRBAG.  And when your license is suspended for DUI, don’t keep driving.  Especially drunk.  Again.

Drunk driving is one of the dumbest and most selfish crimes not only because of the risks to others on the road, but because it’s so damned preventable.  It’s 100% a crime of personal responsibility.  In any major city in this country, you cannot say circumstances forced you to drive home, or to the store for chips, or to the next club.  Call.  A.  Cab.  Hire a driver if you’re a megabajillionaire.  Drunk driving kills people for absolutely no good reason other than the drunk is a selfish, uncaring ass.  I loved my uncle, and some ditz who thought she was “OK to drive” killed him.  I have a zero tolerance policy for drunk driving or DUI of any kind.

Anyway, she freaked out in jail.  Aww...poor widdle baby did no wikey da prisons?  Cry me a river.  Oh wait...she did exactly that.  Check out this shot of her in the back of the cop car:

Adam Mapelson out of the hospital

An update to this story...Brit gamer Adam Mapelson is out of the hospital.

Adam Mapleson, the British gamer who was shot after intervening to help security guards facing armed robbers, has been released from hospital.

A spokeswoman for Southend Hospital told The Reg that Mapleson returned home today after a week of treatment.

He posted on purepwnage as well:

Seeing as I am considerably healed now, but still a little incapacitated (one fat bruised slinged up arm, other than the big cut stapled together chest), I decided to sign up to the forums and express my extreme gratitute to everyone regarding this thread, and the other cople previous ones I managed to glance at.
I was going to leave it a little longer, but seeing as my brother brought me in a keyboard today to plug into this crazy hospital bedside tv/internet point, I decided that I had the strength to write. At least an abbreviated version before I can type with 2 hands again.
It has just blown my mind at how big this has become. It has been a very emotional (what I cant believe has been almost a) week for me. And reading your comments and best wishes has moved me considerably. Like a lot of you have said, teh_masterer’s words are so very true and I hadnt really acknowledge them properly until this happened.
I have been lucky and have recovered (even now) better than I can possibly have imagined. And I have all you to thank for your part to play in that.
Anyway. Before this evil connection decides to clear the message again. I will finish it at that. At least for the the time being.


Good luck, Adam, and try to explain to others why you did what you did.  We could use your kind of influence!

William Jefferson indicted

16 counts, including wire fraud, bribery and obstruction.  Nice.  Now I wonder if those Democrats that talked about this being the most ethical congress ever will remove him from the Homeland Security committee?  Will Michael Moore ever keep his promise to go after corrupt Democrats?

By the way, as I mentioned in that Moorewatch post, there is absolutely no doubt as to Jefferson’s guilt on at least one count.  Feds taped him taking the cash then recovered it later when they searched his house.  100% guilty on at least one count of bribery.

Will Pelosi keep her promise?  Who’s watching the Democrats and their culture of corruption while they watch the Republicans being corrupt?  Anyone?  Beuller?

Gamer take a bullet for security guard

This story is all over the gaming blogs.  Let me tell you why it is impossible.

1. Almost all forms of guns are banned or severely restricted in the UK, so no gun crime could possibly occur.

2. All gamers are homicidal, self-absorbed maniacs and therefore it cannot be that Adam Mapelson ran to help a woman being menaced by armed thugs.  All reason and ration dictates that he obviously went to help menace her, but due to the fact that murderous criminals and gamers are the same - and cannot get along - they began to fight amongst themselves and the gamer took the worst of it.  Of course he was never shot at all, since...well, see #1.

A HERO commuter who collapsed pouring with blood yesterday after he was blasted in the chest tackling armed robbers on his way to work has regained conciousness, said police.

Brave Adam Mapleson, 24, was gunned down as he raced to help a terrified woman security guard.

Fellow commuters watched in horror as two gun thugs — who had held up the woman as she loaded a cashpoint machine — shot the IT consultant outside his local rail station.

Adam, shot at close range, was rushed to hospital for emergency surgery.

Last night he was fighting for life with parents Michael and Carolyn at his bedside.

But today, a British Transport Police spokeswoman said Adam’s condition had improved.

She said: “Adam is in a comfortable and slightly improved condition.

“He has regained consciousness overnight but remains in the high dependency unit at Southend Hospital.”

In all seriousness, I hope Adam gets better fast.  He’s quite the credit to youth, gamers and general humanity at large.  We could do with a few million more gamers like this, no?  So how do we know he’s a gamer, by the way?  Myspace, of course.  He’s a Half-Life2/Counterstrike/GTA fan.  Sweet.  Hopefully as he recovers. someone will get him an Xbox 360 and a copy of Crackdown to while away the hours.  I’d be honored to run the streets of Pacific City with him.

Paris Hilton to get super non-deluxe accommodations soon

If only she was going to Pelican Bay.

A judge sentenced Paris Hilton to 45 days in jail Friday for violating her probation, putting the brakes on the hotel heiress’ famous high life.

Hilton, who parlayed her name and relentless partying into worldwide notoriety, must go to jail on June 5 and she will not be allowed any work release, furloughs, use of an alternative jail or any electronic monitoring in lieu of jail, Superior Court Judge Michael T. Sauer ruled after a hearing.

Oh my…

She said that when an officer who stopped her in January made her sign a document stating her license was suspended, she thought he was mistaken and did not actually look at the document.

...God she’s so stupid.  Is it wrong that I’m enjoying this a little?

Politics makes people crazy

Oh my God!  A Republican gun nut assaulted and threatened an office full of Democrats unless they voted to support Bush’s policies in Iraq!  Great.  Just what we need...a frigging righty gun owner making us all look////

Oh wait a minute, it’s actually the exact opposite of that.

A man accused of threatening a Nevada Republican Party official with a rifle was arrested Tuesday in a vehicle in which police found swords, knives, a shotgun, shells and a flare gun, authorities said.

Matthew Hunter Kramer, 31, did not resist officers who arrested him on a warrant issued after the April 3 confrontation at state Republican Party offices in Las Vegas. It wasn’t clear why he was not arrested earlier.

Zachary Moyle, executive director of the state GOP, told The Associated Press on Tuesday that Kramer invited him to look at something in the trunk of his Mercedes before pulling out a rifle, pointing it at his face and warning that he would be back if
President Bush vetoed an emergency war spending bill being considered by Congress

Look for the media to suppress his political leanings - which were the entire point and reason behind his actions - as they barely report this story.  Meanwhile if it were as I described in the beginning, they’d be leading with “A REPUBLICAN gunman” and so forth.

Oh, that liberal media.

P.S. Dude’s got three names.  I’m telling you, don’t give your child three names.  Two or four...never three.

Armed resistance…

...saves lives.

Bridges pulled a .357 Magnum pistol and he later said he was prepared to shoot to kill if necessary. He and Gross both approached Odighizuwa at the same time from different directions. Both were pointing their weapons at him. Bridges yelled for Odighizuwa to drop his weapon. When the shooter realized they had the drop on him he threw his weapon down.

That was a 2002 incident just a short drive away from the Virginia Tech campus. 

There’s much more at the link.  Good information to have when deciding on how to feel about guns, gun control, crime, criminals and politicians who seek your vote.

Virginia Tech shooting

I know little to nothing about today’s event - neither does anyone else, really, but if you want to try to follow it, I suggest Wizbang.  Here’s their first post that has many, many updates.  It seems that it may have started when the shooter found his girlfriend in bed with another guy.

Here’s their second post, made now that the breaking aspect of this news has slowed down.

Two things: Let’s not operate as if we know all the facts some restraint in theorizing while discussing this.  More importantly, keep the victims and their families in your thoughts.
