Duke Accuser Crystal Mangum Charged with Stabbing Boyfriend

by Stephen Littau


To this very day, there are individuals* who try to hold the Duke lacrosse accuser Crystal Mangum up as a “victim” despite the fact that her gang rape accusations against the players were completely untrue. Crystal Mangum is NOT a victim but a menace to society. Not only did she falsely accuse these young men and do her best to ruin their reputations but she has since been convicted of child abuse and injury to personal property. She was also charged with arson but the charge was dropped because the jury couldn’t agree on a verdict.

Now the sainted** Crystal Mangum has been charged with “assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill.”

WUSA 9 Reports:

DURHAM, NC (WRAL/CBS) – For the second time in 14 months, the Durham woman who falsely accused three Duke University lacrosse players of rape has been charged with assaulting a man with whom she was living.

Crystal Mangum, 32, was charged Sunday with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury. A judge set a $300,000 bond for her on Monday.

Police said Mangum stabbed Reginald Daye, 46, in the torso with a kitchen knife during a dispute at 3507 Century Oaks Drive early Sunday.

Daye was taken to Duke University Hospital to be treated for serious injuries, and Mangum was arrested in a nearby apartment.

His condition was unknown Monday.

A man who said he was Daye’s nephew called 911 to report the stabbing, saying it occurred while Daye and his girlfriend were arguing about rent money. The caller said police were called earlier while the couple argued, but the stabbing occurred after the officers left.

Notice that the alleged victim in this story was named? Mangum’s identity was not revealed when she was the alleged victim thanks to these absurd “rape shield” policies many media outlets follow. Another thing I have noticed in some of the coverage is that some of Mangum’s supporters are cautioning the media not to rush to judgment; she is innocent until proven guilty. These supporters are right of course, but where was this concern when the Duke athletes were made pariahs?

And where is Nancy Grace? Before writing this post, I took a look at her website, blog, and Twitter feed and didn’t find one mention of Crystal Mangum anywhere. It could be that she hasn’t had the opportunity to get into this case, perhaps she will be leading the charge to convict Crystal Mangum in the court of public opinion tonight on her television show?

I have my doubts.


*See the second comment on this post and this thread for example.

**Sainted by the MSM, Al Sharpton, Nancy Grace et. al.

    I don’t know where I read it, but I saw one of the greatest comments in a comments section that I’ve ever seen on this subject. It went something like this: Nancy Grace and the Gang of 88 couldn’t be reached for comment.

    I agree Justin.

    I think Crystal Mangum is one who psychologists refer to as a “crazy biach” (but I could be wrong). I still haven’t found any comment from Nancy Grace on this case. She’s a convicted child abuser…I thought this was something she cared about.

    I wouldn’t be too surprised if the lacrosse team didn’t hire that girl to service them, then she saw all the money’ed people around and decided to call rape. I think this is definitely a case of classic prostitution on the books, regardless of what the case itself presented.

    The rape itself is so doubtful that of course it resolved against the plaintiff. Either way those rich kids acted in ill repute.

    This case is so dirty that there’s nio surprise the jury couldn’t agreeon the verdict first. But again very often there’re cases when a woman can’t prove being raped due to some reasons and the guilty party goes free. So, the conclusion is that the court will have to work real hard.

    “..the jury couldn’t agree on a verdict”.

    Sounds like black jury nullification to me.
