Piece of shiat website has ADD. What else would we expect from Minnesota? Only thing there is mosquitoes and fat ugly women.

Flowers was given credit for 199 days already served in custody, and the judge ordered him to pay $1,550 in restitution to the victim's mother and almost $2,000 to the Minnesota Crime Victims Reparations Board.


Smh.

After the hearing, members of Flowers' family said Flowers is deaf in one ear and has hearing loss in the other. He compensates for it by laughing, and has done so since he was a child, they said.

And here I thought it was because he's just plain nuts. Stupid me.

While I understand the need for order in the courtroom, sometimes it seems like judges have way more discretion than they ought to.

I am hearing impaired. "Nod and smile" is definitely a coping mechanism. It gets old saying "what" all the time, and you don't want to annoy people, either. This was before my hearing aids, of course. What a life changer. I don't understand older people who won't wear hearing aids because it makes them "old", but they'll wear glasses.
Maybe this guy "nods and laughs".

I was about to care before the article, with its near incomprehensibility, (I think) made me aware that it was just a gang-related shooting.

I dunno. This could be. Friend of mine with "artillery ears" does something similar in noisy bars when talking to women. Works about 80% of the time. The other 20%, it's funny to watch him try to explain why he grinned at her story about her dead cat.

Lots of people laugh at inappropriate times to cover their embarrassment.

1) What you said
2) Gang affiliation
3) Mott noted that he received a letter from Flowers, via his attorney, that was unusual compared with communications he has received from other defendants. "It's much more articulate, much more thoughtful, with a much more positive approach to your future in terms of what you hope to accomplish," Mott said. "

This guy sounds like a true sociopath. After 8 1/2 years, he will be a sociopath with better skills.

Whoever does either of the following is guilty of unintentional murder in the second degree and may be sentenced to imprisonment for not more than 40 years:

(2) causes the death of a human being without intent to effect the death of any person, while intentionally inflicting or attempting to inflict bodily harm upon the victim, when the perpetrator is restrained under an order for protection and the victim is a person designated to receive protection under the order.

My wife is half-deaf, she has done the "nod and laugh" since she was a child.

Okay, but his second murder conviction should result in immediate execution. Not because I'm a fire-breathing redneck "conservative" but because I'm a tree-hugging leftist who knows there are too many people wrecking the planet and most of them are stupid jerks no sensible person would have any use for. Except maybe as organ donors for the desperate and food for picky pets.

I have sent you a membership application to join my exclusive I-dont-care club. Returning it is grounds for dennial of membership. Posting on FARK to declare you dont care about something in the future would mean I would have to quit sending you the newsletter about not caring, if I cared enough to send newsletters.

So hard, sometimes, to distinguish garden-variety environmentalism with misanthropy. The Bavarian Corporal was a big environmentalist.

I do that..... just kind laugh and nod my head when I don't can't really understand what people are saying.

Why just the otherday I was walking my dog and a fellow neighbor(with whom I talk dogs with) says from across the street....

Him- "Just getting back from the vet, my dog has cancer"
Me- "Wha?"
Him- "I said my dog has cancer"
Me- "OH...hahahaha!"
him-"Yeah she has cancer and she's gonna die....what's so funny?"
Me- "Oh....gotcha....sorry"

I was feeling sorry for the victim until the artical said he identified himself as a gangmember. Live by the sword and all that....

I can understand the "smile and nod" approach in normal conversation, but during your murder sentencing? Wouldn't you think that'd be just a leetle bit inappropriate timing?

I mean, having a deficiency in one sense is *supposed* to enhance your other senses. Shouldn't sense of timing be one of them?

Okay chuckles, lets see how much you laugh when I start in on your legs with this

The judge said he gave Flowers the lower sentence because of his early guilty plea, his waiver of a potential self-defense or defense-of-others claim, his expression of remorse and his lack of a serious criminal record.

One murder on your record = not serious. Got it.

/one manslaughter on your record = notsureifserious?

Let's just hope that he's not mentally ill and ends up dying in his cell, because we'd get all the white knights going on about adequate care for convicted criminals.

Trolly, troll, troll

Hopefully this guy will end up sharing cells with a Penn State fan, at least the tickle attacks would give him something to laugh at
 
2012-06-26 05:20:14 PM  
8.5 years and $1500 in restitution for murder. I guess that seems reasonable. In the same state, you get 15 years and a $100,000 fine for selling a joint in a school zone. Makes sense to me.
