The wicked witch is dead!

As reported by Fox News, Mike Nifong has been disbarred in North Carolina.

As a big fan of the legal system we have here in the US, I couldn't be happier with this.
It's a tough problem we have here. Electing officials to positions such as this, but pressure on them to serve their constituancy, but on the other hand, puts pressure on them to get re-elected. Sometimes, justice is set aside so that someone can be re-elected.

For the most part the system works. Justice finds a way.

Now don't get me wrong, I have no sympathy for Mike. He chose the path of being re-elected. And now he's paying the penalty, his life is slow being destroyed. He's can't practice law and the civil penalties will take everything he owns. I'd doubt anyone would hire him. He's show a lapse in ethics so great that most won't trust him. He chose to prosecute and destroy people to make his own career last a little longer. Who will chose to destroy next? He chose himself. May God have mercy on his soul.
