Duke Lacrosse DNA results released

http://www.newsobserver.com/1537/story/564994.html

>> When Meehan said he and Nifong intentionally agreed not to report the results of all tests and examinations, some supporters of the players burst into applause.

Meehan testified sitting straight in front of Nifong, about 12 feet away. The prosecutor looked ashen, resting his face in his hands or staring down at the table.

His expert had just become a witness for the defense. <<

I really hope that D.A. gets jail time.

My guess is that:
1. He'll lose his law license (and thus his job, or any other job in the legal industry within North Carolina)
2. He'll face several civil suits, some from people who weren't even involved, but feel they ought to be in some fashion ('He turned me into a newt!')
3. His malpractice insurance company will be very peeved with him when they have to pay out on large claims.
4. The people suing him will be very peeved when they find out that his malpractice insurance won't cover all that they're asking for, and he don't have the assets to make up the difference.

5. He joins the military, the only place he's allowed to practice law.

Holy cow!

One of the players was photographed at an ATM 'shortly after' the dancers finished?  There were 4 DNA sources on the stripper, none of them followed up, none of them Duke players, and the DNA guy agreed with the defense lawyer not to mention them?

Wow, I didn't think this stuff still happened.

Human DNA and the emotions it causes haven't changed much.

I can't tell if STH is serious or not, but Scott Peterson was sentenced to death despite the total lack of evidence and similar behavior by the prosecution and police.

Better science won't help much until we make better people.

It's the supression of evidence, by the prosecutor, with the collusion of the DNA guy, that I'm amazed at.  Especially after laws have been passed to prevent that sort of thing.

And none of them were her boyfriend, either.

Yeah, I think some of this still goes on -- just not as blatantly as this.  Like one of the players said (Selegman?), for people who don't have the financial resources that they did, they get railroaded.

Let's see if one of the boys is motivated to become a public defense attorney.

I guess I should close all my windows whenever I look at porn.

Sorry.
