Miscarriage of Justice?
Like Matt, I never paid that much attention to the Duke Lacrosse Rape case. Partially because I'm tired of the way local news stories get blown up into national scandals. Partially because I just didn't have the time for it. As such, I really can't speak to the justice or injustice of this case.
But one thought does occur to me. Perhaps the Duke Lacrosse players did get a "fair shake"? Miscarriages of justice happen. If we live an in a fair and equitable society then occasionally those miscarriages will happen to privileged white boys as well as underprivileged black boys.
Just a thought.
