mike nifong and the duke lacrosse case

David Limbaugh makes some excellent points in this column.

Mike Nifong, the "rogue prosecutor" who attempted to railroad innocent college students and put them in prison for a crime he knew they didn't commit, belongs in prison. He has resigned as county prosecutor, and he has been disbarred, but that's not enough. Nifong intentionally prosecuted and persecuted a group of young men for a crime he knew they didn't commit. Do you understand just how serious that is?

The Declaration of Independence states that the right to liberty is a unalienable right given to us by God, and that government may not take that right away from us. Nifong violated one of the foundational principles of our American republic, and he did it on purpose, for the sole purpose of winning an election. Other than committing treason or supporting Islamofascism (like Jimmy Carter) I can't think of a more anti-American act a person could commit.

The criminal justice system, and the civil process, should not be finished with Mike Nifong. He deserves to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, and he deserves to lose everything he possesses in civil court. Mike Nifong deserves to do serious prison time, and to serve that time side by side with the very same prisoners who he prosecuted.

Any less would be a miscarriage of justice almost equal to his original crime.
