It is always good to hear from constituents, even if it is regarding tragic situations.The more political pressure, the better.
I too am troubled by the conduct of the Durham District Attorney in the case. It would appear that Mr. Nifong violated police procedure in suspect identification and made improper and inflammatory remarks to the media. Most troubling is the claim that he withheld potentially exculpatory DNA evidence.
One of the pillars of our judicial system is the right to a fair trial. I have contacted the U.S. Attorney General, Alberto Gonzales, to look into the matter. I hope he will do so and determine whether it constitutes prosecutorial misconduct.
