At David Stockman’s Contra Corner.
I did some work on this case, including an exposé on two New York Times operatives’ role:
“N.Y. Times to Duke Rape Hoax Victims: Drop Dead”; and
What my VDARE editor, Peter Brimelow titled:
“Nicholas Stix` Absolutely Definitive Account of the Incredible Disappearing Duke Rape Hoax.”
The following article, however, has a lot of juicy material. Its only problem is that the writer seems to have the barest acquaintance with the English language.
Top Villains in the Duke Lacrosse Hoax
False Rape Archives
It was not necessarily easy to pick a list of the top 15 greatest villains in that disaster of a Hoax. Some are sharing a spot in this list, as they are often difficult to tell apart in their non-sensical screed. The hatred the people on this list displayed for justice, freedom, and other traditional democratic values is astounding. Their methods of perpetrating injustice at any cost, including self-deprecation, is a testament to how far we still have to go before we can trully make a great society.
I have excluded the two principal villains, District Attorney Mike Nifong and the False Rape Accuser herself, the Hoax Enabler, Crystal Gail Mangum from this list, as they were clearly the #1 and #2 criminals otherwise.
#15: Richard Broadhead, Wahneema Lubiano, Karla Holloway, Peter Wood, Maurice Wallace, Thavolia Glymph, and the rest of the Group of 88
There are more 88ers coming lower in the count, but these are the people I couldn't fit in this list.
The Group of 88 are 88 Duke professors with a chip on their shoulders, an irrelevancy complex, and an almost obsessive hatred of a large variety of things, often male and white. The lacrosse team provided a very easy platform from which to launch their views.
The original "Listening" ad and Wanted Poster provided enough fuel for the fire of hatred to last a long time. Under the guise of 'anonymous' students, the 88ers provided their own quotes damning the team. Lubiano even characterized it as a stake through the heart of the Lacrosse team.
Of course, when the case collapsed and the 88ers were (slightly) taken aback, they would no longer claim the ad was about the Lacrosse incident, but about other, more 'lofty' goals, such as speaking out against the sexism and racism on campus.
Facts, of course, were stubborn things, ignored exclusively by most people on this list.
One note however, is the signatory Arlie Peters. He distanced himself from the G88 and did not sign the clarifying statement later on. For that, he needs to be applauded. The rest continued their hatred long after the case they once so cherished... collapsed so utterly.
For a list of their behavior, google.com, KC Johnson and others provide ample information.
Finally, the president of Duke, Richard Broadhead. He was not an 88er, but he certainly shares their views. Many people attest to his intelligence, and I have no reason to doubt any of them. He is a very smart, suave man, with a great eloquence, which is clearly lacking in most of the company he keeps (on this list and the 88ers in general).
When Finnerty and Seligmann were arrested, he gave his speech of: "If they did it, it's appaling. If they didn't do it, whatever they did is bad enough".
He knew, at that point, that all Seligmann and Finnerty did was drink beer. According to Broadhead, that was enough to warrant a 30 year prison sentence.
He failed his university, he failed his institution, he failed academia in general, and he failed to reign in a mob of morally destitute gangsters.
#14: Kathy Redmond
Redmond is the founder of the National Coalition against Violent Atheletes.
The clear greatest heroes next to Brad Bannon were the Lacrosse women at Duke. Their wearing of the Innocent armbands, alongside the jersey numbers of the false accused, at their top-4 game was one of the defining moments of this entire hoax.
The backlash of hatred was expected. The Lacrosse men's team suffered the most of the hate. Columnists like Selena Roberts, Harvey Araton, John Feinstein, Andrew Cohen and others slandered vigorously and unchecked.
However, the vitriol and sexism launched at the women of Duke Lacrosse was amongst the ugliest in the entire hoax.
The first was Harvey Araton of the New York Times, calling (disparagely) the lacrosse women "gals", wondering how they would stake their reputation on the outcome of the case. He went on and on, and for a while, he was the forerunner in the hate leveled against the female lacrosse team. Until...
In a Jeff Schultz article oozing with condescension, Kathy Redmond was given a voice:
"These are stupid, spoiled little girls. It smacks of high school. Maybe one day when they'll read about one of their friends who was raped. Then they'll rethink this."
"More than any other sport, there's this mentality with women lacrosse players of, 'We're as tough as the men.' It's almost like a competition. It's like they try to carry themselves with a masculine edge. They want to be looked at as being just as good as the men, yet they still look to the men for validation."
"I'm surprised [the women players] didn't fear any reprisals from Duke. It tells me that the school is still taking this less seriously than it should."
So, this is the founder of the Coalition against violence expresses suprise that the women didn't suffer reprisals.
One of the consistent good things that came out of this case is the exposure of the morals of feminists and other politically correct entities. The sheer sexism thrown at the Lacrosse women is very telling.
#13: Amanda Marcotte
Marcotte is a foul-mouthed blogger and a feminist extraordinaire. Facts, logic and reason are anathema to her very existence. I have rarely, if ever, met someone as vitriolic as her.
Marcotte's view of the case was straight-forward. They raped her, and absolutely nothing can possibly change her mind about it. Not only that, she completely disregards any new development, or old fact, about the case. She does this with frightening dedication. She does this after the DNA conspiracy was exposed, where anyone with even a shred of intellect would realize the extent of the Hoax.
She is not stupid, far from it. For someone with intellect to have followed this case and produce such opinions, is very suspect. Marcotte knows the Lacrosse players are innocent, and yet throws so much hate at them that one would think she was personally involved.
Marcotte also claims she was raped. Whether she was or not, the fact that she willingly props up a case for a clear false rape accuser is evidence enough that she absolutely does not care about actual rape victims, but is quite willing to stab those that were raped in the back. For her, a false rape victim is just as fine as a real one, in fact better: it is far more 'Hollywood' and enticing.
Marcotte was hired by (North Carolina native) presidential candidate John Edwards as his official blogger. She was then promptly fired (she said she left), not long after her famous 'stuck at the airport' comment towards the Lacrosse team.
That Edwards, by far the highest ranking person to come out of North Carolina, was silent about the biggest case of prosecutorial misconduct in American history in HIS OWN STATE, is telling. That he hired Amanda Marcotte, with her views quite public, is sheer stupidity.
Marcotte, of course, deleted her posts, as she does with anyone disagreeing with her. For some reason, she does not understand a very key concept about the internet, that Rooney Mara mentionned in the movie, 'The Social Network':
"The internet isn't written in pencil, it's written in ink."
#12: Tim Tyson
Tyson is a professor at Duke. He is also one of the two known professors (the other being Faulkner Fox) to have admitted to attending the potbanger protests outside the Lacrosse house, chanting songs and waving "Castrate" banners (quite an accomplishment for a teacher against his own students, and a violation of the Student Handbook).
Tyson admired Crystal Mangum, but was part of a very ironic situation: when he was at the lacrosse house protesting in the shadow of the "Castrate" banner, Mangum was dancing, quite limberly, at her strip club (so much for "injuries" and "trauma").
Tyson is also the author of, in my opinion, the most outrageous of all remarks to come out of this case, when he suggested that that Duke students refusing to speak to Mark Gottlieb without presence of their attorneys "may be illegal".
That a professor is so ignorant of the bill of rights and the 6th ammendment is stunning.
#11: Ariel Dorfman
Dorfman is a professor of literature at Duke. He was one of the Group of 88ers. Unlike most of the rest, Dorfman is well-read and accomplished, and has written against injustices before, such as the Pinochet regime in Chile.
In short, not the kind of person that the Gang of 88 would associate themselves with.
Dorfman, in general, has had little to say other than being part of the original statement. I am not really aware of much other controversy he initiated... other than...
Dorfman was one of the signatories on another petition. The petition to free Roman Polanski. Polanski, of course, admitted not only to rape, but to rape of a minor, after drugging his victim, in a case where there actually was a victim. This wasn't even in doubt, and Polanski fled the US after this.
So Dorfman wants to punish the demonstratively innocent, and release the demonstratively guilty.
It is understandable, because Dorfman and Polanski have collaborated before, but the extent of his actions, the man has a lot in common with Pinochet, the very man he campaigns against.
Thanks go to KC Johnson who noticed this.
#10: Houston Baker
We start the top-10 off with a bang. Houston Baker is one of the most vocal members of the Group of 88, who wrote a guilt-pressuming racist screech of a letter, denouncing everything male, white, athletic.
Even his fellows were taken aback, and it prompted the first (and for a long time only) rebuke from Duke, from Provost Peter Lange (Lange was public about it, at a time where the entire world was against the Lacrosse players).
Baker soon left for Vanderbilt where he was hailed as the "leading dissident voice inside Duke University regarding that administration's handling of rape accusations against members of its lacrosse team" (apparently, at Vanderbilt dissident means something other than the Oxford Dictionary Definition.
Furthermore, he was characterized as: "one of the most wide-ranging intellectuals in America today in any field of the humanities. He is prolific and writes to an audience far broader than academic specialties."
When the mother of a lacrosse player (unindicted) wrote to him, asking him for help in a fairly moderate and very friendly letter, the wide-ranging intellectual replied:
LIES! You are just a provacateur on a happy New Years Eve trying to get credit for a scummy bunch of white males! You know you are in search of sympaathy [sic] for young white guys who beat up a gay man [sic] in Georgetown, get drunk in Durham, and lived like 'a bunch of farm animals' near campus.
I really hope whoever sent this stupid farce of an email rots in .... umhappy [sic] new year to you ... and forgive me if your really are, quite sadly, mother of a 'farm animal.'
Trully the words of an intellectual and a professor.
#9: Kim Curtis
One could make a top-88 of villains of just the Duke Professors. Kim Curtis, in my mind, is probably the greatest G88 villain outside of Houston Baker. The reason Houston Baker is behind her on this list: he does a pretty good job at making himself completely irrelevant.
Kim Curtis is a Political Science professor, best known for using grade retaliation against unindicted Lacrosse players, after accusing them of a covering up the rape, a crime for which she should have gone to the authorities if she had proof.
This is not all she is known for. After a scuffle between a Duke student and a few NCCU students (where the Duke student was knocked unconcious), the Duke police increased security. Since there was an event with objective proof, this seemed like a reasonable response. There were no demonstrations, just a few increased patrols.
Curtis was livid, slandering the Duke student (and his female companion), and urging "research on this (knocked unconscious Duke) student and making it public". That a professor would display such hatred for her own students is shocking.
She even repeatedly claimed the female companion lied about such matters on a regular basis.
Then came the Lacrosse case.
Curtis was one of the potbangers, as Liestoppers discovered, and never admitted to it. She presumed guilt and inferred (in writing) that the Lacrosse players covered up a crime (even the ones not accused of rape). She should have gone to the police with such proof.
Of course she had none, and resulted to grade retaliation, especially against Kyle Dowd, who ended up suing the university.
The fact that Curtis still works as a professor is unbelievable. She and her husband/fellow G88, left Duke in 2007. As the Lacrosse case collapsed and her vicious hatred for her students was exposed, there really wasn't much Curtis could do at Duke.
#8: Larry Moneta
Larry Moneta is the VP for Student Affairs at Duke.
As the VP for Student Affairs, Moneta's job is simple: take care of the students entrusted to him. I might be unaware of other job descriptions.
What Moneta should have done, in the wake of the trampling of the Lacrosse player's rights, is to protect the Lacrosse players. These were his students, at his institution, and they were threatened by a bloodthirsty mob waving "castrate" signs and the extremist New Black Panthers Party. Not only that, 88 professors have taken it upon themselves to slander their own students, and Moneta did nothing.
When asked by an attorney to do his job and protect the students, he refused, and when pressed, Moneta replied: "Frankly, Samantha, I don't believe them."
Not much was heard from Moneta until another allegation of rape happened on February 11th, 2007, near Duke University, where a Duke student, a girl, was raped by a non-Duke man. The fact that the alleged victim was white, and the alleged perpetrator was black, had nothing to do with Moneta's vastly different response, of course.
Incredibly, he appears to be blaming the alleged victim:
"It's part of the reality of collegiate life and of experimentation and some of the consequences of students not necessarily always being in the right place at the right time."
So, we have the Duke VP for Student Affairs that goes against his own students, when they are accused of rape, and goes against his own students when they claim they were raped.
This man has twice failed to defend his own students, although in all fairness, he did say that he would help the alleged victim in the February 11th case.
It must have dawned upon him that it is alright if he violates constitutional rights for 46 of his own students, and allows an external mob to run amok on his campus (twice). It might have been harder to explain to his politically correct allies that he does not believe the girl's rape allegation off-hand.
This is not the only time that Moneta was not too concerned with his own stutends. The 'Water Buffalo' incident at Penn was also on Moneta's shift, and while his performance there isn't quite as criminal as the one at Duke, it's still stunning that this man keep being in the position he is in.
#7: Samiha Khanna
Out of all the people on this list, Samiha Khanna is probably the least well-known. This is unfortunate, as she was the only person that was granted an interview with Crystal Mangum, and she co-authored a story that launched the Hoax into the public eye. She painted the false rape accuser as an innocent victim and portrayed the lacrosse players as brutal gang rapists, with no evidence, and against the most basic journalistic standards.
She portrayed Crystal Mangum as a hard worker... which she was - a dozen men in a few days... a devoted mother - who had her driver and random people take care of her kids while she was out, "working hard"... and a serious student - although no one remembers her actually going to class.
Most importantly, Mangum claimed two things in that interview: That the second dancer, Kim Roberts, was also raped, and that the lacrosse players stole her money. Both things never made the paper for obvious reasons, and were quietly dropped even by the police. If she reported those, the case would have collapsed far more quickly, as the evidence would contradict her actual rape claims immediately.
After the Hoax collapsed, Khanna came back to the case, and offered a stunning piece. First, she declines to take credit for her own work/words, blaming Mangum. She built up Nifong's fallen case as something other than the trainwreck that it was. Finally, she tried to cast doubt on Roy Cooper's declaration of innocence.
She pushed the irrelevancy of her earlier work and claimed that it did no damage. Finally, she kept up the mantra of "we'll never know what happened".
It takes uncommon dedication to this case to keep supporting it long after the evidence and proof came to light and showed it as the greatest hoax in american jurisprudence. Samiha Khanna was the proud flagbearer and first contact. We salute her!
#6: Wendy Murphy / (honorable mention: Nancy Grace)
I am loathe to group people together, but in this case, the two are virtually undistinguishable from another. Despite that, let it be clear that it is Wendy Murphy as the undisputed sixth place selection, lying just outside the top 5 worst villains. Nancy Grace was a primary enabler of Murphy, but did enough work to stand out on her own.
It is difficult to summarize what Grace has done, but a more prosecution-friendly figure there wasn't. Grace (who had her own problem with ethics), like Murphy, purports to be a seasoned sexual assault prosecutor.
Let's start with Grace.
On her show, Grace is a wrecking ball. She would loudly and vitriolically shut down any attempt by any of her guests to even remotely suggest such quaint notions like due process, justice, presumption of innocence, probable cause, or any actual rights afforded by the Bill of Rights. She would mock and humiliate (or try to, anyway) her own guests by bombarding them with incorrect, but loud facts. She was a cheerleader for Mike Nifong.
She would routinely make up facts and mention non-existing evidence. She also made collosal errors on the most simple concepts; one of her funniest statements: "There you see the alleged district attorney there in Raleigh-Durham speaking out."
"Alleged" DA? Also, there is no city by that name.
Grace has been silent since the case collapsed.
Now, Wendy Murphy. Ah, Wendy, Wendy, Wendy... I cannot think of a single person in the entire history of modern american justice that has done more for the cause of injustice than her. Starting with the horrific Fells Acres injustice and leading up to the Duke Hoax, Murphy has been at the front lines of many a judicial disaster.
Her dedication to put the innocent behind bars is something to be admired.
I cannot come close to duplicating the amazing work that KC Johnson has done to bring the hoax to light, but his work on Murphy is some of the best written on any topic. KC's 3 main charges against Murphy:
- Making untrue statements
- Presenting wholly unfounded speculation
- Denigrating Due Process
This is from a adjunct "professor" and former "sex crimes prosecutor".
One can assume that Wendy is a fairly smart person, and she is. But long after all of Nifong's supporters abandonned the case, Murphy was still willing to go to bat for the criminal DA.
Much like Khanna, Murphy displayed uncommon dedication to the cause of injustice. She was THE zealot amongst zealots, the longest-lasting supporter of Nifong, willing to take it as far as possible. Unlike Grace, Murphy never gave up, never backed down, and continued to live in her fantasy world until no one cared anymore.
Now we come to the top-5, and while the first batch of villains is debatable, I absolutely do not think these anyone but these 5 will fit in this group. Whereas the others are mostly only talking heads, irrelevant demagogues that have long since fallen out of favor or public eye... These five, alongside Mangum and Nifong, have done enough damage to the justice system and American values, to be felt for a really long time. Let the parade begin.
#5 Brian Meehan
He was the lab director at DNA Security Inc, the private DNA lab that Nifong hired, after the SBIs DNA results came in exonerating all Lacrosse players.
In the first meetings with Nifong, Meehan explained how none of the Lacrosse players DNA was on Mangum. He also explained that there were (about a dozen) other male DNA in her "private" orifices. Given that she said she did not have sexual intercourse for a week before the "rape", and the fact that so many unknown men left DNA was on her, should have been a red flag to anyone even remotely competent.
The report Meehan prepared did not include this information. He did have to give up the results (about 1800 pages worth), and both him and Nifong thought that the defense did not have the knowledge, and would not have the patience, to go through the entire mount of high-level forensic results to figure it out.
Nifong even told the judge afterwards, when asked by the defense, that no other men's DNA was found on the "victim".
Unfortunately for Meehan, Mangum, Nifong and the throng of their supporters that based their entire ideology upon this case, one of the Duke heroes, defense attorney Brad Bannon, spent an entire month learning DNA, combing over the results, and (per KC Johnson) exposing the Meehan-Nifong conspiracy in a Perry Mason moment (capped by Jim Cooney):
Seligmann attorney Jim Cooney: "Was the exclusion of material the result of a specific agreement between you and representatives of the state of North Carolina?"
DNA Security director Brian Meehan: "Yes".
This was the moment the Hoax was done. Those three letters, Y-E-S, is when the Hoax collapsed.
The ideologues that propped up the case, from feminists to race-baiters, that blame everything from the players to the "rape culture" to the "system", should know that Brad Bannon is the number one reason why this gross injustice was avoided and three innocent people didn't go to jail.
Let me just put it this way: Bannon is a far greater hero than anyone on this list is a villain, and that is saying something.
Meehan was fired. He then sued DNA Security for unjust termination. That alone should give you an idea of the mindset of this man.
#4: Linwood Wilson
He was Nifong's henchman, a "private investigator" with a longer rap sheet than anyone else in this list.
Wilson was the enforcer for a variety of tasks, his most prominent was the arrest of Mozeldin Elmostafa, the cab driver that would prove Seligmann was not at the house at any time Crystal Mangum said she was raped. Between his testimony and Wachovia ATM bank video evidence, Seligmann had an ironclad alibi. Wilson arrested Elmostafa on an "outstanding warrant", but never really questionned him about it, instead asking him if he had any "new" information about the Lacrosse case.
The setting was clear: you have a prosecutor, Nifong, sending a police officer, Wilson, to arrest, coerce, and intimidate a witness that could blow the cover off the Hoax.
This alone should have been enough to convict and jail Wilson. However, it was far from his only crime.
After the December 15 hearing where the conspiracy between Meehan and Nifong to conceal DNA evidence came to light, Wilson was sent to FINALLY interview Mangum about the night in question. A full nine months have passed since the "rape", and this was the first time the prosecution talked to the "victim" about the case. The new story, of course, is that she was not "raped" per se, but instead only assaulted, in order to circumvent the new information. He, of course, did not record this meeting, the police department's last procedural violation in a long line of stunning violations.
Even for someone as unethical as Wilson, this should have been a red flag. Instead, he plowed straight ahead, a last ditch attempt to prop up a case he should have known would die. This proves that he knew his actions to that point were illegal.
Wilson was fired, and then was arrested on charges of threatening his wife (unrelated).
#3: Kendra Montgomery-Blinn
We now come to the top three, the cream of the crap, the most criminal amongst the many evils. We start the list with someone that is probably the least known on this entire list. Montgomery-Blinn is a former Durham Assistant District Attorney who is the first director of the then just-established North Carolina Innocence Inquiry Commission.
At the Nifong DHC hearing, Montgomery-Blinn gave a fawning performance over just how good Nifong was. As KC Johnson said, this endorsement was stronger than even Nifong's lawyers.
So why is she on this list, and even in the top three?
She is the director of the NC Innocence commission. Let that sink in for a moment. If nothing else, between the Duke Lacrosse and Alan Gell cases, North Carolina proved itself to be dead-last in the concepts of justice and reason. The head of the Innocence commission testifies, at a hearing of Nifong's crimes of framing innocents and trying to put them in prison for almost a combined century... on behalf of the criminal prosecutor.
She also praised no-drop policies and seems to not understand the purpose of courts (insists that anyone that makes an accusations NEEDS to have their day in court).
She continued praising the fact that even with no evidence, a case should go to trial if the prosecutor simply "believes".
Words simply escape me. She was not involved at all with the actual Hoax before the innocence declaration from the Attorney General, and this is why she takes third place and not top honors. The fact that the head of the innocence commission would commit such an atrocity is telling of the justice system in North Carolina.
#2: Mark Gottlieb
In a case where Law Enforcement performed as poorly as this, in a case where so much corruption came to light, in a case where so many criminals were not only supported by the media and the blind followers, and wore shiny blue suits... Durham Police Department Sargeant Mark Gottlieb stands out.
Gottlieb's maliciousness was evident before the case, as he arrested ten times as many Duke students as all other supervisors combined. He trully hated Duke. To put such an evidently biased person in charge of any investigation is paramount to madness, if not outright villainy.
Gottlieb committed many crimes that all but ensured justice could not be served. His main crime consisted of the rigged April 4 line-up to Crystal Mangum, after DNA evidence exonerated the players and proved the Hoax was a... hoax.
The story was ever-morphing and never consistent, but after the original numbers were thrown out (0->20 rapists), the police settled on three. This wasn't clearly communicated with Mangum, as I will mention below.
On April 4th, Gottlieb showed her the mugshots of all 46 white Lacrosse players and told her to select any three. She selected four (this is taped and recorded incidentally), adding yet another number of rapists to her story (she never before claimed 4).
Gottlieb selected two at virtually random (Finnerty and Seligmann), leaving the other two, in limbo. Over a month later, they indicted a third (Evans), leaving out the last one Mangum selected, Matt Wilson. There was no rhyme nor reason to Gottlieb's selection on April 4.
Mangum gave them description of her "three rapists" early in the investigation, and none of the descriptions matched any players on the Lacrosse team, much less any of the 2/3/4 selected. This, of course, was ignored, much like Matt Wilson.
What is frightening about all this is the information having been made available almost immediately. The media, and the people, KNEW of everything as it came out. It didn't take a genius to figure out this was a Hoax, and yet, no one cared. Gottlieb was emboldenned by this, as will future criminals that will frame the innocent.
His second crime, and ultimately his undoing, was his "straight-from memory" notes in July 2006. Gottlieb never took any notes for any of his interviews/interrogations (2 pages for 2 months, actually, in one of the most famous cases in American judicial history), and yet was able to produce a 33-page typed document that plugged any and all holes in the Mangum/Nifong conspiratorial story.
A lot of the people on this are either stunningly incompetent or frighteningly malicious. Gottlieb, like the first selection, proved that he could excelt at being both. This puts him ahead of Linwood Wilson, a far more malicious, but smarter, corrupt police officer.
After his anti-Duke arrest record was revealed, Gottlieb was replaced by Linwood Wilson. Finally, Gottlieb was fired after the case collapsed.
#1: Tara Levicy
There is little doubt as to what villain would earn the top spot in this debacle, after Mike Nifong and Crystal Mangum were discounted. Tara Levicy, the feminist zealot, park ranger turned SANE (Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner) nurse, was in my mind, the single most important reason as to why this hoax went as long as it did.
Levicy filled a very important role in the hoax. As the only medically endowed ally of Mike Nifong (although those credentials were called into question many times), Levicy did everything in her power to prop him up and to feed him information they both knew was false, under the guise of "expert" respectability.
Levicy discovered the only injury that Mangum had on her when she was brought in: the non-bleeding scratches on her knee and foot. Mangum also had a yeast infection, which caused antoher nurse (Dr. Manly) to note that Mangum had diffuse edema of the vaginal wall, but the only injury that was there was the non-bleeding scratch.
That injury prompted her to evaluate that Mangum was not lying when she claimed rape, and told the police that it was consistent with someone that suffered sexual assault.
Mangum told a large ammount of varied stories about what happened to her, changing many aspects of it, including the ammount of rapists (0 -> 20), the ammount of dancers (she claimed there were 4, even though there were 2), the names, the time, who did what, and various other things. The actions of the second dancer, Kim Roberts, also varied... in one story Roberts was a fellow rape victim, in another a thief, and in others accomplice to rape. The only thing that remained consistent was the lack of condoms.
When the DNA results came back exonerating the lacrosse player (two weeks after the party, before the protests and before any arrests), Nifong needed condoms, and Levicy obliged. This was the first example (of many), where Levicy changed the story to better fit with new developpments.
She also modified the SAER report in several locations. For example, in the notation about whether the alleged rapists had tried to conceal evidence, Levicy had initially entered 'no'. In the version produced on April 5, however, this was crossed out, and 'yes' was indicated, with a handwritten notation 'wiped her off with a rag'.
Levicy will always be remembered as a feminist of the highest caliber, an ideologue that testified that she never encountered a woman that ever lied about rape, and a key person that propped up a falling case for over a year. This was not done innocently, or blinded by ideology. She knew Crystal Mangum was a liar and the Duke Lacrosse kids were innocent, and she did everything in her power to continue the Hoax. She is a criminal of the highest order, and should have been the second person, after Nifong to go to prison. The fact that this was not done will reverberate for a long time, and will hurt future rape victims as well as the future innocently accused.
Her crime is unique in its enormity, even given the company she finds herself in.
Levicy was fired. More than anyone, she escaped with punishment far below her crime.

Reason Writer: Did Columbia University Rape Hoaxer Emma Sulkowicz Organize a Criminal Conspiracy to Destroy Her Victim’s Life?
The Reason commenter below could just as well be talking about University of Virginia rape hoaxer Jackie Coakley.
tarran|5.20.15 @ 11:49AM|#
Man this story just keeps getting crazier
The thing is that people like Sulkowicz don't just suddenly go off and do this sort of thing as a one-off false allegation.
They do this in *every* area of their life. They do it because it's a successful strategy for getting them what they want, *and* they have to date not faced serious repercussions for this sort of behavior.
They tell big lies and little lies. They go after people who are major figures in their social circle, or total strangers who make the mistake to politely respond to a conversational sally and find themselves snared in a sticky web of false allegations.
And the vast majority of humans, who never would even think of leveling false allegations against *anyone* cannot believe that these people are lying, and bend over backwards to make excuses for them.
I expect that anyone scrutinizing any aspect of Sulkowicz's life will find instances of her making up shit about other people with a wanton disregard for the consequences to them. And it will be like a fractal; no matter how tiny the bit being scrutinized - a year long affair, a two week group project, whatever - there will be lies and smears to bend people to do what she wants them to do.

“A Testament to the Greatest Lie of Our Lifetime”: Ferguson Memorializes Racist, Would-be Cop-Killer Mike Brown with Huge Plaque, as if He were a Scholar/Victim/Hero, Rather than a Vicious Criminal
Re-posted by Nicholas Stix
Although in the article below Colin Flaherty stands tall, it is otherwise written in a namby-pamby style uncharacteristic of World Net Daily, yet which will make it no friends at Google.
The officer was not charged after formal investigations revealed Brown apparently [apparently?!] attacked the officer and tried to take his gun, and may have been [may have been?!] charging at the officer when the shots were fired.
The article implies that blacks were misled about the circumstances of Brown’s death. They weren’t misled at all. They were simply outraged at a white policeman’s refusal to die at the hands of a racist, black thug.
And this is the way most blacks are nowadays. Note that nine years ago, Chicago black supremacists came this|close to getting a street named after cop-killer Fred Hampton: “Fred Hampton Way.”
Michael Brown plaque called “monument to lie”
“Awful message to send to kids who don't have 2 parents”

A permanent memorial that will be erected in Ferguson, Missouri, in memory of the late Michael Brown is nothing more than a “monument to the lie,” according to one of several critics of the move just announced by city officials there.
Colin Flaherty, author of “White Girl Bleed A Lot: The Return of Racial Violence to America and How the Media Ignore It,” believes the real story is how Brown is being remembered as a hero even after local and federal investigations conceded he attacked a police officer.
Brown was the black teen who was shot and killed by a white police officer, an encounter that sparked days of rioting in Ferguson. The officer was not charged after formal investigations revealed Brown apparently [apparently?!] attacked the officer and tried to take his gun, and may have been [may have been?!] charging at the officer when the shots were fired.
Flaherty pins much of the blame for the failure by many to understand that Brown was not the innocent “hands up, don’t shoot” victim as described on [sic] reporters whom he believes were looking to create a myth about “racist” police.
In an interview with WND, Flaherty scoffed, “It will also be a monument to the local and national reporters by the thousands [sic] botched that story, top to bottom, front to back.”
Flaherty believes the monument is a triumph to what he calls “the greatest bait and switch of our lifetimes.”
He observed: “Within 10 days we knew virtually everything we were told was not true. There was ‘no hands ups, don’t shoot.’ No ‘gentle giant.’ No ‘good kid minding his own business on the way to college.’ Yet, the lie persisted long after we knew the truth. And now they have built a monument to the lie.”
Jack Cashill, author of “If I Had a Son: Race, Guns, and the Railroading of George Zimmerman,” is stunned at the boldness of the campaign to honor Brown. He told WND, “To build a memorial to Michael Brown is to perpetuate a lie, but what makes this different from other memorialized leftist lies is that everyone knows it is a lie.”
Civil rights activist Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson, author of “Scam: How the Black Leadership Exploits Black America,” blames President Barack Obama and other left-wing leaders for creating a false story of Brown as an innocent victim of white racism.
Peterson told WND: “First they sent White House officials to Brown’s funeral, now they’re elevating this thug into to a civil rights hero. It sends the message that it’s good to be a thug and that you’ll be a hero and worshiped. This is an awful message to send to kids who don’t have two parents.”
Peterson suggests Ferguson will not be the only city where what he calls “thugs” will be honored as heroes. As he put it: “I wouldn’t be surprised if they erected a memorial for Trayvon Martin, Freddie Gray and others. The liberal black leaders don’t want to promote good citizens because there’s no payoff for them.”
Ferguson city officials this week, on what would have been Brown’s 19th birthday, said they had reached an agreement to remove an informal shrine created at the scene of Brown’s death on Canfield Drive and replace it with a plaque.
Though Brown was killed after attacking Officer Darren Wilson on August 9, 2014, the plaque contains no acknowledgement of the circumstances of Brown’s death. Instead, the wording of the memorial pays tribute to Brown’s “afterglow of smiles” left behind when his “life was done.”
The confrontation between Brown and the officer sparked riots that pitted the city’s largely white police force and the African-American community.
An investigation by the Department of Justice found “no evidence” to disprove Wilson’s testimony that he feared for his life after being attacked by Brown.
Conflict between police and African-Americans have spread to other cities in the wake of Brown’s death, notably in Baltimore, where riots took place after the death of an African-American man, Freddie Gray, in police custody.
Fox 2 St. Louis reports the stuffed animals, flowers and other objects placed in the middle of the street will be stored by the Urban League. The city has long contended the sprawling memorial was a safety hazard, but the process of negotiating for the removal of the objects from the street took months.
Talk show host, respected commentator, and author of “Dear Father, Dear Son” Larry Elder condemns the message the Brown memorial sends to African-American teenagers.
Elder disgustedly told WND, “If anything, Brown is an object lesson in what happens when you fail to follow police officers’ instructions.”
Elder also believes the Brown case shows the triumph of a created myth about innocent African-Americans being ruthlessly gunned down by racist police.
“In all these other cases, not just here, people are not paying attention to the facts or the evidence, instead pushing a narrative that blacks are being routinely and persistently hounded by white racist cops,” Elder said.
Elder observed such beliefs can have disastrous consequences, pointing to the riots [sic] Baltimore as an example. “Whatever happened to Freddie Gray is still being investigated, but already protesters are simply assuming he was murdered before any investigation is complete.”
Elder believes African-Americans are being steered in the wrong direction to blame racism for all of their problems. While many progressives are sincere and simply mistaken, Elder says, he condemns “race hustlers” who “exaggerate racism” for their own purposes. [“Sincere and simply mistaken”?!]
“It’s all about getting that 95 percent monolithic black vote, without which the Democrats cannot win a presidential election,” he said.
Rev. Peterson says African-Americans are being exploited by white liberals who don’t actually believe, as the slogan puts it, “black lives matter.”
“They’re using blacks to promote their own agenda and most blacks can’t see it because they’re angry,” he said. “Most black Americans, though not all, have bought into the lies that white racism is their primary problem.”
What will be the results of the memorial?
“They think they are building it to honor Michael Brown, but the memorial is really a testament to the greatest lie of our lifetime: That black people are relentless victims of relentless white racism, all the time, everywhere and that explains everything,” Flaherty said.
Breaking News from Cleveland: Racist Prosecution Fails; White Policeman Michael Brelo Acquitted in Deaths of Blacks Timothy Russell and Malissa Williams; CNN, for Whom Race is Suddenly Extremely Relevant, Seeks to Incite More Black Riots

Cleveland officer not guilty in killing unarmed pair
By Ralph Ellis and Jason Hanna
Updated 11:43 A.M. ET, Sat May 23, 2015
[Absolutely no comments permitted!]
Emotions run high in protest outside courthouse
Cleveland police officer Michael Brelo was charged with two counts of voluntary manslaughter
Prosecutors say he stood on a car hood and fired the shots that killed a man and a woman
(CNN)A white Cleveland police officer who stood on a car and shot the vehicle's two unarmed black occupants after colleagues already riddled the car with bullets in 2012 was found not guilty Saturday in their deaths -- with a judge ruling his actions were constitutionally justified.
Cuyahoga County Judge John P. O'Donnell, who reached the verdicts after a several-week trial, declared Officer Michael Brelo not guilty of voluntary manslaughter and felonious assault in the deaths of Timothy Russell and Malissa Williams following a 20-minute car chase.
Brelo's actions -- jumping onto the stopped car and firing 15 shots into the vehicle after he and his colleagues fired more than 100 times -- were constitutionally justifiable because it wasn't yet clear that any perceived threat to the officers was over, O'Donnell ruled.
Emotions ran high outside the courtroom in Cleveland -- where public outrage over several recent police shootings has been palpable -- after the verdict was read. One woman wept inconsolably on its steps.
Some held up signs, outraged that Brelo was not convicted.
"All I know is that I don't trust police no more. No police. None," proclaimed one man, adding that "I can't recover from this. ...This verdict isn't real. This verdict is fake."
[When did he ever trust the police? He probably says the same thing every time prosecutors fail to railroad a white cop.]
The killings of Timothy Russell and Malissa Williams were among several police incidents prompting outrage in Cleveland in the past few years, and was one of the cases highlighted by a 2014 Department of Justice report that found that Cleveland police had a pattern of using excessive force.
[That would be the black supremacist DOJ Civil Rights Division. Consider the source.]
Brelo's lawyer celebrated O'Donnell's decision and the efforts that led up to it. He portrayed the case as a "David vs. Goliath" fight, with his client being the underdog.
"The prosecution in this case spared no expense and was, in fact, ruthless," attorney Patrick D'Angelo told reporters. "But notwithstanding that, we fought tooth and nail, as you saw in this courtroom."
What led to the deaths of Russell and Williams, prosecutors said, was a chase that began when a car driven by Russell backfired -- a noise that officers thought was caused by gunshots -- in Cleveland on November 29, 2012.
More than 60 police cars pursued the vehicle for 20 miles, sometime hitting speeds more than 100 mph.
[Why wouldn’t Russell and Williams pull over?]
When the chase ended in a middle school parking lot, about a dozen officers fired 137 shots at Williams' car, Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Timothy McGlinty said. Each was struck more than 20 times, according to the U.S. Justice Department.
Of the 137 shots, according to prosecutors, the only ones that weren't legally justified were the final 15, allegedly fired by Brelo.
Firing had stopped when Russell's vehicle became trapped between two police cars, the prosecutor said.
But Brelo got on top of the car's hood and "fired at least 15 shots, including fatal shots, downward through the windshield into the victims at close range as he stood on the hood of Mr. Russell's car," McGlinty said.
Prosecutors said the final 15 shots were unlawful because they had no chance of escaping and they no longer presented a threat to anyone's safety.
[Ridiculous. Russell and Williams presented the same threat they had presented when Brelo’s colleagues were firing at them. Brelo’s fellow officers had fired at the vics up to 122 times, and hit them up to 30 times, at which point they were surely dead, but he’s the only one whose shots were “unlawful”?
That’s pure sophistry, concocted in order to get the white guy.]
Brelo told investigators he thought he and his partner were in danger, believing the couple in the car were shooting, CNN's Martin Savidge reported. Brelo told investigators, "I've never been so afraid in my life. I thought my partner and I would be shot and that we were going to be killed."
Neither Russell, 43, nor Williams, 30, had a weapon.
Brelo's defense argued that not only did he and other officers believe the suspects were armed and that the officers' lives were in danger, but also that prosecutors can't be certain whether Brelo's final 15 shots were the fatal ones, CNN affiliate WJW reported.
Brelo would have faced three to 11 years in prison on each voluntary manslaughter count had he been convicted.
Brelo was indicted in May 2014. Five other officers face charges of dereliction of duty in the chase and shooting.
The verdict comes during a 12-month period in which the deaths of other African-Americans at the hands of police or while in police custody -- in Missouri, New York, Baltimore as well as Cleveland -- have caused turmoil in American cities. [CNN’s Ralph Ellis, Jason Hanna, and Greg Botelho are acting as if the cops had murdered the blacks in the cases they allude to. Never mind that Michael Brown was killed while attempting to murder a policeman; 400-pound Eric Garner was resisting arrest; and Tamir Rice was holding a gun as if it were real. The killings by cops didn’t “cause turmoil”; racist blacks and their supporters, like CNN did.] In Cleveland last year, an officer shot and killed Tamir Rice, 12, who was holding a pellet gun at the time. Authorities say the investigation of that shooting will be finished soon.
CNN's Greg Botelho contributed to this report.
The NYPD’s New PR Strategy: Make Friends with Kool-Aid, Refuse to Provide Basic Details in “Wanted” Twits, While Producing Feelgood Twits About Affirmative Action Police Persons
I warned about the problem of useless police perp descriptions almost five years ago, in my VDARE report:
“‘I Don't Think It Does Race’—the Rise of Raceless Police Suspect Sketches.”
@NYPDnews @NYPD43Pct Male what? Height? Weight? If you were a police agency, you'd automatically provide such basics....
This is the way you would do a perp description if you were a law enforcement agency tasked with catching a bad guy. Unlike you guys, OEM actually cares about finding this missing person. Apparently, you’re some kind of welfare, make-work agency.
In case you’re thinking of coming back with something brilliant like, “When you need us, you’ll call 911,” first of all, you’re not cops. You fled policing to be propaganda officers. Second, I have repeatedly called 911 over the years, including to report shots fired, but you guys refused to come. Maybe the racist black dispatchers refused to dispatch cars. More recently, I caught a prowler on my property, and called the local precinct, but no one picked up the phone, anywhere in the house. Explain why I should pay your paycheck.

Officer Kerrie Orozco Sept 19, 1985 - May 20, 2015
Updated on Wednesday
A life taken too soon. End of watch May 20, 2015
Officer Kerrie Orozco has been with the Omaha Police Department 7 years and 5 months. She was a Bi-lingual, Spanish interpreter and began working for the Gang Unit in March of 2012 and sadly ended her career in the same Unit.
Officer Orozco is survived by her husband Hector Orozco and two stepchildren, Natalie and Santiago. Officer Orozco had given birth to Olivia Ruth on February 17, 2015. Oliva Ruth was delivered early and was expected to come home from the hospital tomorrow, May 21st… the same day Officer Orozco was going to begin her maternity leave.
Officer Orozco is also survived by her mother Ella Holtz, brothers Elija and Erran Holtz, brother Nolan Nielsen and sister Kelsi Holtz.
Officer Orozco was currently active in coaching baseball and has been coaching since 2009 at the North Omaha Boys and Girls Club. She also did many other things at the club including planning pizza parties. She volunteered with Special Olympics and was president of Police Officer Ball to benefit Special Olympics Nebraska. Kerrie was a Girl Scout Leader, participated with Shop with a Cop and assisted with the Latino Police Officers Easter Egg Hunt.
Officer Kerrie Orozco was not only a top notch police officer but she gave back to the community in so many ways. In today’s press conference, Chief Schmaderer stated that the community owes a great deal to such a wonderful person. Her loss will not only impact the police officers but will also be a huge loss for the citizens of Omaha.

Hear Jack Jones Sing His Signature Song, Bacharach and David’s “Wives and Lovers,” Accompanied by a Dazzling, Mad Men-Inspired Photoessay and Complete Lyrics!
By Nicholas Stix
Expanded at 2:06 p.m., Wednesday, May 20, 2015
I only watched one episode, a few years ago, of the hit AMC series, Mad Men, about advertising men and the women (“Mad,” as in Madison Avenue, home of most of the biggest advertising firms), and set during the early 1960s. However, I have recently read fans of the show say that this song was featured on the show, as an expression of the Don Draper character. Mariabrat’s exquisite photoessay accompanying the video below plays out this theme.
Meanwhile, this is what Jack Jones looked like at 25, on the cover of his 1963 Wives and Lovers album, and for most of the 1960s.
As for the song, it’s exquisite, with both swinging and lyrical elements. I can’t recall offhand hearing such a mix elsewhere. I’m amazed that Bacharach and David didn’t offer it to Sinatra first, though Jones must have had a leg up, due to having made his first hit with their song “Lollipops and Roses” two years earlier.
(Feminists hate this song, and have sought to “disappear” it, but what don’t they hate? They hate beauty, charm, class, virtue, normalcy, romance, comedy…)
Beginning in 1964, the song-writing duo devoted itself to writing hits for girl singers, and in 1965, Dionne Warwick had her first hit singing their song, “Walk on by.” From then on, she was their muse, until their acrimonious break-up in 1973, over the musical movie bomb, Lost Horizon.
Neither music man was ever the same after that.
Imagine what Jones’ career would have been like, had Bacharach and David composed more songs for him.
Although the Draper character was older, I am convinced that the young Jack Jones, in his elegance, good looks, and self-confidence, was the inspiration for the Draper look.

Wives and Lovers- Jack Jones. This song was out in the fall of 1963. It was a perfect song for the 1950's - early 1960's era. This song also fits the character of Don Draper from the TV show, "Mad Men". Along with the pictures of Don Draper (Jon Hamm) and the cast of Mad Men, are also other ads, famous people and other pictures from the 1950's and early 1960's.

Apparently, no biker is clean shaven.
N.S.: Note how stupid and hardcore the pictures all look. There has been a concerted effort online for several years now, to claim that bikers are really jolly, middle-aged, surfer dude types, and that world certainly exists, but these mug shots exude the very true stereotype of biker thugs that our generation grew up on. Thus, there are at least two biker cultures, and we must always keep that in mind, and therefore have our guard up, any time a group of bikers crosses our path.

I thank reader-researcher A.L. for this story.
The attack reportedly was committed at 3:25 p.m. That’s right after school let out, so it’s likely the 15-year-old vic, and possibly the perps, too, just got out of school. (Or they timed the attack, based on school dismissal time.)
I’ve lived in New York City for just under 30 years. The dwindling number of civilized adults in this town have to plan their traveling around the school schedules, because of racist, violent black kids.
I used to work in nearby Ozone Park, with my shift sometimes starting at 4. My commute would bring me through this exact station at this exact time, and it was always unsettling. Hordes of menacing high-school students loitering around with nothing better to do. The whole thing had the charged atmosphere of a prison yard, like anything could go down at any second. Which I suppose is appropriate, since inner city high schools are feeders for the prison system as much as anything else. Eventually they increased police presence at the station to shoo kids along and keep them under control. But all that seems to be coming undone under the regressive reign of DeBlasio. There are parts of this city which I will no longer visit under any circumstances. (Which is a shame, because those are some of the areas where all of the hip young transplants are trying to settle.)
Victim beaten and robbed of pants on subway platform

New York (MYFOXNY) –
A man [sic] was attacked by at least five people and left pantless on a Brooklyn subway platform on Friday.
The NYPD says it happened at about 3:25 p.m. The victim was on an "L" train at the Broadway Junction station when he was attacked.
The attack continued on the train to the Atlantic Avenue station where it spilled out onto the platform.
Police say the man continued to be beaten. In a short video clip that was posted on social media, the man appeared to be unconscious and dragged back toward the train by one of the attackers.
The attackers then stole his pants, shoes, and phone and then ran off.
The victim was taken to Brookdale Hospital where he was being treated for various injuries.
Police say there have been no arrests and the investigation continues.
Community activist Tony Herbert says it appears to be part of a growing pattern where gang members will walk up to someone, ask what gang they are in, and then attack.

The whole world is corrupt .. These hoes aint loyal .. Students and staff fuck each other at charter scschool all the time. Thats what charter schools are for. Its the place where failing educators and failing students meet to charter success collectively. And lastly i could be wronw, but it looks like the student is cock eyed. If he starts rapping and puts out a trap queen type song.. he would shmurda tha game. Akademiks would definitely make him relevant again.
(At the video’s Youtube page.)
That was a rhetorical question. You don’t know, because no one reported it… until now.
A full-blown Jack Jones renaissance is underway in the Stix household. Every day, of late, I’ll be listening to Jones recordings in one room, while my Chief of Research will be listening to them in another one. Often, we’ll both be listening to the same song, Jones’ signature and biggest hit, “Wives and Loves.”
About a week ago, after going over 20 years without hearing him, I searched up Jones’ performance of “Once Upon a Time” at Youtube, and found a treasure trove of uploads of his recordings and live performances. It turns out that at 77, the man still looks good, sounds great, has gone back to the elegant look of his youth, before elegance was crushed and he surrendered to the bummy “casual” look, and is still going on tour every year! He would have just finished a 24-day tour in the UK yesterday, but his wife Eleonora (#6) needed sudden surgery, and he stood by her, postponing the tour until next year.
I kept coming across remarks from 2011 at Youtube by people who said that they had been inspired to upload or listen to Jones’ most famous performance, of Bacharach & David’s “Wives and Lovers,” by the cable TV series about early 1960s advertising men, Mad Men, and mentioned the protagonist, “Don Draper,” played by Jon Hamm.
It seems that the show played Jones’ early ‘60s hits, apparently as signature to the Draper character. (I only saw the show once, a few years ago. I thought it was well done, but I have little time for episodic TV these days, aside from watching Mets and Jets losses.)
I looked up pictures of the Draper character, and this is what I found.
Meanwhile, this is what Jack Jones looked like at 25, on the cover of his Wives and Lovers album, and for most of the 1960s.
Although the Draper character was older, I am convinced that the young Jack Jones, in his elegance, good looks, and self-confidence, was the inspiration for the Draper look.

David in TN to N.S.,
This was an email exchange we had nearly four years ago. With the current subway and other assaults in New York, I thought you might want to see it again.
In a message dated 7/9/2011 7:01:50 P.M. Eastern Daylight Time, David in TN writes:
This afternoon, I rewatched the Bernhard Goetz Biography Channel interview. The program pointed out that New York City is a much safer place than it was 20-25 years ago.
My question is: Were there more racial attacks of the kind we see today back in the pre-Internet days? The Internet makes it possible to find news items and pass them on.
N.S. to David in TN, on Sat, Jul 9, 2011 at 6:20 PM:
I can't say whether there are more or less "wilding" attacks now, and the official murder rate is about 70% lower than it was then, but during my 26 years here, casual racist assaults have gotten steadily worse. Black women, including those with cops in the family, will now go to supermarkets in white neighborhoods with the sole intention of jumping white shoppers, knowing that nothing will happen to them. (They won't even act like they're shopping. They'll just set up in an aisle, arrange children, adults, and empty shopping carts so as to make it impossible to pass, and wait for a victim.) Indeed, people will support them, and "respectable" black women they don't know will immediately pop up to give false reports to the police (a crime) on their behalf. Black street thugs will likewise terrorize whites, knowing that the police will not arrest them, short of them killing someone. Dealing with the NYPD in such situations is surreal, as sergeants and lieutenants (I'm including whites here) lie about the law, and about what one just experienced, in order to side with the black malefactor.
On May 9, after the second time in one year that NYPD supervisors lied like that to my face and my kid's, I yelled at a white lieutenant, "Thanks for an object lesson for me and my son!"
I don't have to badmouth the NYPD. After my son's experiences with me, he has contempt for officers of all colors. However, just like his old man, he is polite in individual dealings (ditto for dealing with blacks). But like me, in both cases, he expects nothing.
As we left that station house following that last episode, I told him, "As soon as you're old enough, you have to move to a state where you have the right to carry a weapon."
A lot of people will say that that's a crazy thing to say to an 11-year-old, and I would never have planned it, but my son has seen things that no 11-year-old should see, like his old man getting jumped while shopping, and then getting arrested.
