Justice is (finally) served

Some days, things happen that give you hope this country is salvageable. This is one of those days, and this is one of those things.

All sexual assault, kidnapping and other charges have been dropped against the three Duke University lacrosse players indicted for raping an exotic dancer, North Carolina Attorney General Roy Cooper announced Wednesday.

I have to take my hat off to Roy Cooper and his staff. They did the job. And they did a number on that asshat Nifong, as well:

The players and Cooper blasted District Attorney Mike Nifong — who originally indicted the players for rape — for overstepping his power as a district attorney, saying the "rogue" prosecutor had "pushed ahead unchecked" in this case.

"There were many points in this case where caution would have served justice better than bravado," Cooper said. "This case shows the enormous consequences of overreaching by a prosecutor.

Wow--I bet that left a mark. So, ah, Mr. Nifong--just what is Plan B? You know, what are you going to do after you get disbarred?
