forget it....after editing what I typed about 5 times, it'll still come across as racist/bigoted to certain people. "Move along...nothing to see here...".

I was three when this happened, so my opinion is influenced by having no personal knowledge or reccolection of this case.

It kinda ticks me off that the article goes in to such detail in telling us where she lives and works and what she drives. I don't see how any of that serves any real public information interest, especially when she apparently has a child at home.

If only this end result could be replicated with Al Sharpton.

Both are proof that racial discrimination exists. If they would have been any other racial category, they'd have been charged with false information, attempted extortion, and other crimes.

Wow, that was pretty harsh. Even I almost feel sorry for her...almost. Talk about outing her secret identity - did the NY Post put up "Your Neighbor is Tawana Brawley" billboards too?

He's skinny now. His name came up today in a conversation and somebody mentioned he got that gastrosomethingorotherbypass surgery.

She is in hiding from a six-figure civil judgment. That is valid reason to have her assumed identity, location, and assets become public record.

Seems to me that her stepfather, Ralph King, was the monster that started this.

People don't change so if she lied then she would lie now.

She wanted the spotlight, got busted for lying, now she can live with it for the rest of her life. Karma eventually catches up with you and now you won't have Sharpton to save you because there is no money to be made.

I never could understand how Sharpton had a shred of credibility with anyone, much less getting to appear regularly on news shows, after this incident.

I really thought he would just be a footnote at this point in history. We're really messed up when you can become famous, without people remembering what you are famous for.

She told a lie, got a pimp to go public with her, blamed two cops for crimes they did not commit, got found out to be lieing, the cops never lived down the prosecution and job problems down because of her and her pimp.....and yet some feel sorry for her? she and her pimp were never prosecuted for their crimes against two people....even when the proof of their crimes were put on national t.v. by themselves.

To whom does she owe said judgment? Not the public. Her daughter, the unidentified male mentioned, and her coworkers do not need to be part of it.

The judgment she owes is to the original prosecutor in the case. He had filed the case over defense actions of slander and libel, and he actually WON a judgment against those involved. Aiding collection of that judgment is a valid public concern. Her employment is relevant to collection of that judgment, since her earnings may be legitimately attached. So is her status as a parent of a minor child, which would be relevant in determining attachment amounts on her wages.

Why not? They released the names of every CCW permit holder in a three county area in NY. At least this skell deserves to be outed, since she's been avoiding a court order to pay Pagones.

So we should just blame her father because she decided to start a major firestorm over bull****, which cost the life of a Police Officer, and the careers of a Trooper and an ADA? Nonsense. SHE and she alone was responsible to making up the story. The poverty pimps that jumped in and made it a witchhunt are responsible for the aftermath, just as she is.
