Duke Case: Hoax Busting Video

Support - Association For Truth and Fairness
Support "Association For Truth and Fairness"


What an extraordinary and fast moving 24 hours, it's been hard to keep up with all the developments and hoax busting that have been going on in Durham.

Some people were working late in Durham last night, and we are not talking about the alleged victim, Crystal Gail Mangum. KC Johnson publishes his analysis of yesterday's hearing at 12:15 a.m., and the News & Observer publishes a Joe Neff article at 12:30 a.m. and modifies it 3:33 a.m.

The Neff article and video release seem to be the confirmation of defense attorney Joe Cheshire's comment to local reporters, after yesterday's hearing, that information on the accuser was soon coming out soon.

The N&O said:

A woman identified as the accuser in the Duke lacrosse rape case performed an athletic pole dance at a Hillsborough strip club at the same time that the accuser was visiting hospitals complaining of intense pain from being assaulted.

A time-stamped video shows a woman at The Platinum Club on March 26. The club's former security manager, H.P. Thomas, identified her as the accuser.

The video, reviewed by The News & Observer, shows a limber performer. The same woman told doctors at UNC and Duke hospitals around that time that she had been beaten and assaulted and was racked with pain....

Crystal Gail Mangum pole dancing on March 26th

The video segment, about a minute long, shows the woman, introduced as Precious, as she approached a floor-to-ceiling pole on a stage, dressed in a thong and skimpy top. She grasped the pole and lowered herself into a squatting position, so that her buttocks almost touched the floor. With her hands on the floor, she stretched out her right leg vertically, as though she was kicking to the ceiling while squatting, and waved her leg several times to either side of the pole.

The accuser's appearance was part of a longer recording documenting an event at the club that began March 25 and continued past midnight.
First, there were the time-stamped photos of the party showing that Ms. Mangum was not in any way, shape, or form a victim of a violent 30 minute gang rape. Now this new video showing her kicking up a storm on stage, while at the same time pretending she was still hurting from an alleged attack.

When will this legal insanity stop?
