TuteTibiImperes: 7 years would certainly be excessive.  Time served and a probation would be about right.


Normally elbowing is just a 2 minute minor penalty.

Go to the box, feel shame, then you get free.

You can lead a woman by the boob, but that won't make her think

Lenny_da_Hog: inclemency: Also, it's disturbing how many are anti-populace and pro-cop.

I can't verify or deny this claim but we are being tested. Police state = almost here.

There's assholes in both camps.

mrshowrules: Another good point. Santorum is probably one of the few Republicans that could pull off the "working man's champion" with some credibility.

I just never understood how homophobia got linked with less taxes for the rich

Conversely how: cutting fossil fuel burning means you have to be for affirmative action


Coalition building: it's how you get things done in a democracy.

Although some people would argue that camping in a park, doing jazz hands, and shouting "MIC CHECK" in front of a banker's townhouse is the better method.

lucksi: Lenny_da_Hog:

And that wasn't just a pull-away reactionary elbow -- she leaned down and used her full body mass to inflict injury as much injury as she could and ran to get away.

That is what I would do to get away from someone assaulting me.


It still goes beyond the lawyer's tale of "it was an accident." She formulated a strike to the face. It wasn't like she just jumped away and accidentally hit his face. And I still doubt the boob-grab story, between the video evidence and number of other continuity problems she has.

some_beer_drinker: this is outrageous. she is a political prisoner of the 1%


whidbey: Maybe she'll get parole after a couple of years.

But yeah, this is bullshiat. I would be appealing the fark out of this ruling.


hurr durr derp derp derp.  How do appeals work? (hint: the appeals court only considers the law, not facts of the case already determined by the jury - what process or law did you think the judge missed or were you just hurr durring outrage?)

It's idiotic reasoning like yours that led her to court and felony conviction of violence.  I doubt she'll get any prison time that is beyond 3 months.  Her problem is turning down a misdemeanor plea bargain to double down with a violent felony.  That will show up on any future traffic stop on the cops computer (they flag assault on a LEO for the rest of her life) and every single job background report.  Also, she loses her right to vote and is pretty much banned from international travel as most countries reject visits by violent felons.  Congratulations on turning the misdemeanor disorderly conduct plea bargain into convicted felon!  I hope she was silver spoon protester that has a fat lawyer bill so the taxpayer isn't funding any more of her stupidity.

But keep choking that chicken.  You and she need this bit of Faber wisdom: "Fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life."

How about a face full of STFU?. (she lost at court too).

Wessoman: There you go. With erect nipple. Yes, the cop totally made a fungrab. And yes, she was found guilty of felony assault. Which is BS--You grab a ladies boobs without asking, she will elbow you. We all know that.

Honestly, it's just the police making her an example.


Did you watch the video in TFA? The bruise she later shows off is above acceptable necklines. In the video, nothing ever blocks the vibrant green of her t-shirt. A hand to the top of her boob (and really, if you're going to grope someone, why would you grope there?) would have been evident from that angle against that bright green, and it's just not there.

She'll probably get a short time in a jail and a long time suspended, which would piss her off as a professional protester to have jail time hanging over her head for the next few years.

And they're already talking about appealing, but I really doubt it will overturn anything. Most of what they're talking about was stuff that was disallowed because it was immaterial.

The video is pretty damning, and doesn't support her titty-twister tale.

gaspode: she leapt in the air and clocked him in the face full on. Unless you can PROVE sexual assault then that is assault 100% of the time. That said actual prison time would be utterly ridiculous.

TV's Vinnie: TuteTibiImperes: The NYT has a more detailed account of what happened.

Yeah. I'm sure "I groped her boob. I groped it good." was a part of the report.


Eh, when arresting someone I don't expect the police to be super careful about not touching intimate areas.

If I'm ever arrested for being unruly in public I fully expect a police officer to grab my penis.

I've always wanted fight a line of riot police in full knight armor with a club and some people of my own. Like these two.

media2.s-nbcnews.com

The problem is I don't want to do any of the things or be in any of the situations that CAUSE riot cops to show up, nor do I want to be arrested nor physically hurt anyone. I just want to see how well sword vs nightstick. Just sparing unit to unit.

She sure taught the 1% a lesson.

OWS had some great ideas and a ton of energy, but no direction and abysmal organization.  It's a shame that the potential there was mostly wasted.  They helped get the conversation started, but it could have been so much more if someone had managed to take charge, distill the message into some accessible soundbites, and do some halfway decent PR work to focus the media.

Actually, I think their impact in terms of moving the conversation was pretty substantial.

Nabb1 just used the term "the 1%".  That wasn't really in the common vocabulary before OWS.  Not that it was unheard of, but almost everybody today knows what it refers to.  That's actually a pretty large victory, simply to carve out a notion of the very (not super, but very) rich as a class, in a way that emphasizes their minority.


Especially considering the media, rather than organizing things directly and boosting them, was actively trying to bury them.
