  • Manhattan Assistant District Attorney and Central Park 5 prosecutor Elizabeth Lederer has resigned from her position as law professor at Columbia University after a group of black students called on her to quit.

    The Black Law Students Association, said Lederer’s actions were racist and demanded on Tuesday that the administration dump her from the faculty where she serves as a lecturer in law.

    They also want Columbia Law School to revamp its curriculum to battle what they call institutionalized racism in the legal system.

    Losing her job is not even half of what needs to be done to this nasty woman. MAN WHAT A WASTE OF SPERM SHE LOOKING LIKE A FUCKING RACOON. She needs to lose everything and live with the shame of ruining the lives of five men. Hell has a playground for her, Linda fairstein and the others involved. I wont be content until they all suffer the worst way possible for what they done. If I was Kory Wise i seek the worst nastiest revenge known to men on those white racist bastards.

    Leigh Goodwin, MBA says:

    ALL RIGHTS RESURVED UCC 1-308. says:

    I believe anyone with loved ones wrongfully imprisoned or facing any unjust case should see & read the facts presented in Sidney Powell book: "License To Lie! Sidney Powell Exposes the unchecked power of prosecutors across this country, especially against people of color, will muster up the power of God and get the lawful justice due them and their families by using the truth and evidence hidden from the records and the public these monsters hide knowing the truth of innocence!!!

    Michael Alexander says:

    Dr. Carr, as usual, "spit it!" Hit these individuals and entities economically.

    LOLWTFSMHOMG says:

    The professor is wrong it is not wrong to be the defense lawyers for a presumed guilty person because that is a constitutional right but prosecuting people who you the prosecutor herself presumed were innocent and knew the police lied and were coercing the to admit to a crime they knew they couldn't have committed is a violation of those peoples constitutional rights. This happens just about every day to black and brown people in America. The deans that were forced to resign should have educated those that protested their defense of Weinstein on how the constitution works and why all people deserve a defense because they might be and should be presumed innocent. But if evidence shows that the suspects guilt was in reasonable doubt the case should not have been prosecuted. She knew they were innocent but she chose to try them anyway to keep herself in line with the injustice system for black and brown people.

    The Race Analyst, PHD says:

    Having trepidation is fear and stagnation. It doesn't matter the potential for being targeted or consequences. If there are threats, like in war, be strategic and a step ahead. All hands on deck is #1.

    KC says:
