EDITORIALS: Bye, bye, Mike Nifong

There are 2 comments on the Charlotte.com story from Jun 20, 2007, titled EDITORIALS: Bye, bye, Mike Nifong. In it, Charlotte.com reports that:

“We need to improve at a better rate.”

Critics of Mike Nifong say his decision, announced Friday, to resign as Durham's district attorney is a self-serving ploy to save his law license. We agree.

It's far too convenient for Mr. Nifong to acknowledge now that he can't serve the people of Durham effectively. That admission comes as he faced stinging condemnation this week during an N.C. State Bar ethics hearing over his handling of rape charges against Duke University lacrosse players. The State Bar has accused him of unethical conduct for withholding evidence that could have exonerated the players. He could be disbarred. Read more

Did you notice that in Mr. Nifong's apology to the men he targeted for undue legal terrorizing, that he started out by saying how he and his family have suffered? I know many lawyers are out of touch with the realities most of the rest of us have to deal with, but Mr. Nifong isn't even in the same ballpark. Again I'll say that some jail time and paying off the legal costs the innocents who suffered because of his poor choices should help get Mr. Nifong's head on a bit straighter.
