Duke Lacrosse Players’ Accuser Guilty of Murder

Posted by Steve Markowitz on November 25, 2013

Crystal MarnumIn 2006 Ms. Crystal Mangum, an African-American, accused white lacrosse players at Duke University of gang rape.  The story “promoted” by the mainstream media and some civil rights leaders made national headlines.  While the case was ultimately dropped when Ms. Magnum recanted her story, and the charging DA was disbarred due to improprieties, the accused students were scarred for life.  Accuser Magnum was never charged with wrong-doing for her false accusations.

That Duke saga was not the end to Magnum’s misdeeds.  This week a North Carolina jury found her guilty in the second degree stabbing murder of boyfriend Reginald Daye in 2011.  She was sentenced to a minimum of 14 years in prison.

While the false rape accusation against the Duke lacrosse player and the resulting trial made national headlines for months, at least before the charges were dropped, the death of Reginald Daye will garner barely a peep from the national media.  The reason for this inequity is mired in political correctness and a mainstream media that reports news based on ideology rather than newsworthiness.
