Race to Injustice book. One evening in March 2006, members of the lacrosse team held an off-campus party where alcohol was served and two erotic dancers were hired to perform.

Mangum was black and relatively poor; the accused were white and relatively privileged.

The new book Race to Injustice: Lessons Learned from the Duke Lacrosse Rape Case examines this high-profile pile-up between a prestigious university, an alleged rape, an unscrupulous district attorney, and a news industry ravenous for the next big scoop. Race to Injustice draws on Seigel’s experience as a federal organized crime prosecutor, the first assistant United States attorney for the Middle District of Florida and a professor of law. Seigel said his intent in writing the book was to provide insight into one of the most embarrassing episodes in recent legal history.

This is an important book that brings the Duke story to life and exposes troubling facts about our justice system and our citadels of higher learning. You may think you know the Duke story-but you don't until you read this book. Jan Crawford Greenberg, ABC News legal correspondent and author of Supreme Conflict. So many lessons can be learned from this case. I did think this book went a little long and got somewhat "preachy" towards the end, but it was well worth the read. This book and a documentary called Facing Darkness have completely changed the way I look at any news presented by the media.

RACE TO INJUSTICE: LESSONS LEARNED FROM THE DUKE UNIVERSITY LACROSSE PLAYERS RAPE CASE, pp. 211-235, Michael L. Seigel, e. Carolina Academic Press, 2008. 25 Pages Posted: 4 Feb 2010. See all articles by Lenese C. Herbert. Drawing upon the parallels seen in the Central Park Jogger case (where prosecutors exploited race-based fears of Black male sexuality, violated the civil liberties of the accused minors, and convicted the accused with coerced confessions), this Chapter notes how, despite their oath to do justice and perform ethically, criminal prosecutors can and will manipulate a frightened public for personal gain

The American criminal justice system, though undoubtedly one of the best in the world, is far from perfect. Every once in a while a notorious case comes along and reveals its uglier side for instance, its differential treatment of whites and people of color. Such cases often garner huge amounts of national media attention and capture the sustained interest of a normally restless American public. Whatever their outcome, they provide academics with exceptional opportunities to study, learn, and teach about the justice system. They also offer the chance to study related matters, such as the conduct of particular law enforcement and other officials, as well as the underlying causes of crime and the public's reaction to it. The Duke lacrosse players' rape prosecution is one such case. One evening in March 2006, members of the lacrosse team held an off-campus party where alcohol was served and two erotic dancers were hired to perform. A disagreement broke out between the dancers and the players; later, one of the former, Crystal Mangum, alleged that three players had raped her. Mangum was black and relatively poor; the accused were white and relatively privileged. Up for re-election in a jurisdiction with many African American voters, District Attorney Mike Nifong pursued the case very aggressively. He used questionable identification procedures and was unusually outspoken in numerous local and national media appearances. Even after DNA evidence indicated that the defendants had not engaged in sexual activity with the victim, he declined to drop the charges. Worse, he hid other exculpatory DNA evidence. The case split the Duke campus, the Durham community, and observers at large into sharply divided factions. Desperately trying to preserve its hard-won reputation as an upper-echelon school, the university cancelled the lacrosse season, suspended the three indicted players, and commenced a series of internal investigations. After months of dramatic twists and turns, the North Carolina Bar Association charged Nifong with violating several ethics provisions based on his handling of the prosecution. Within days of being charged, Nifong relinquished the case to the North Carolina Attorney General who, after reviewing the proof, dismissed all remaining charges against the lacrosse players and publicly declared their innocence. After a thirteen-month ordeal, the case was finally over. Eventually, the disgraced Nifong was disbarred.

an astute analysis of the duke case...
the miscarriage of justice, coupled with the disgraceful beheavior of the press, the Duke president and administration, and the faculty whose ignorance was matched by their political correctness. The problem? What hsx everyone learned> Nothing.
'The only people who suffered were the victims.

fascinating story

This is a poorly informed book about the case. If readers want to read the definitive book on the subject, they need to peruse William D. Cohan's The Price of Silence.

This is a good book for my justice 401 class. Interesting but talks about important things.
