Throw the Book at Him
The despicable DA Mark Nifong, who pushed through the Duke lacrosse case on extremely shaky evidence, goes to court today himself. He is probably going to be disbarred for several ethics violations involving the case, but I wonder if that's enough. I understand that prosecutors need to have some protection, but in this case I think he was criminally negligent. (I'm pretty sure I've mentioned how he stacked the odds during the photo line-up by not providing only team photos without any shills.) I hope that at the very least the families of the boys get to sue him. Then if they win, which they would, they can donate all of the money to charity or something.
