Re: “The Durham Sheriff Says the Bungled Confederate Monument Case Wasn’t His Fault

Welcome to how the legal system works. Or, put another way, "you have to prove beyond a reasonable doubt in the courtroom that they did it." And, in these cases, they district attorney's office failed to do so.

Years ago I was on a jury for a criminal case in Durham County that ended up in a similar manner - the prosecution failed to present enough evidence to reach beyond a reasonable doubt.

Re: “End of the Lines

I'm sorry to see you go. I moved to the Triangle from Scranton a decade ago and it took me a bit to find IndyWeek because at first I thought it was like NEPA's "Electric City" and "The Weekender" weeklies. I soon bit, though, and realized it was much more. I've said that it will be one of the things that I'll miss when I move across the country later this year, though I'll miss it a little less now as a result.

Re: “A Letter to My Rapist: When I Was Fifteen, You Assaulted Me. I’m Still Healing.

Thank you for writing this. I know it wasn't easy and I imagine you didn't necessarily feel strong when you wrote it but you most certainly are.

I have found similar in discussing my own sexual assault and the abuse I suffered earlier in my life. It truly is an amazing feeling to be able to seize that power for ourselves again - that they can't have it anymore.

Re: “After Pat McCrory Lost, the NCGOP Falsely Accused Hundreds of Voter Fraud. Shouldn’t That Be Harder?

We already have a lot of laws governing many false utterances, some criminal and some civil. I see little reason this particular process should be handled differently. There are two ways to go with that, of course: bring the other laws, such as filing of a false police report, etc., in line with this or bring this in line with those laws.

Re: “Scott Crawford Refused to Sell Us a Plate of Food at Crawford and Son

I easily believe Crawford would. There's a lot of ego needed to achieve the self-aggrandizement required at those levels. Those various awards are all about it. Bragging rights brings bucks. Let's not pretend this isn't a straight-up capitalist system here: that kind of talk is what bosses do to their employees to get them to buy into loyalty that won't ever be returned.

Re: “Breaking: Pat McCrory Concedes Governor's Race

I'm honestly surprised. I had expected that he would only accept if the vote flipped.

Re: “A Day at The Transgender Opera in the North Carolina General Assembly—As a Trans Woman

A lot of trans people don't want or can't have that particular surgery and the state compelling surgery on individuals is not a route we want to revisit. Further, not everyone who has that surgery can update their birth certificate since that is subject to the laws of the state where they were born and various states have different rules (including that some allow updating of ones birth certificate without said surgery.)
