USA Today would like to see the prosecutor in the Duke rape case investigated by the Bar Association. From an editorial:   

Last March, when a young black woman who had been hired to strip at a Duke University lacrosse team party accused three white players of raping her, the case became a national sensation. The instant storyline was one of jocks gone wild, with echoes of North Carolina's sorry racial past.
Today, the case is looking less like a vicious crime perpetrated by privileged athletes and more like an example of prosecutorial misconduct by the local district attorney.

  • Rushing to judgment
  • Bringing charges based on flimsy evidence
  • Sitting on evidence
