Now some trumpers will get to see if the are pro prison by touring a prison for a few years
 
2021-01-13 1:21:38 PM  
All the Trumpers are pro-police, as long as the police are oppressing minorities.  When the cops come for them, the support disappears.

That's what their "support" is worth.  Buppkiss.

This is how I imagine all Trump fan lawyers in court, ala Charlie Brown's parents.

Judge: what is your defense?

Trump fan lawyer: wah wah... wah wah wah... wah wah wah wah!  wah wah, wah wah wah!! wah wah wah wah wah wah wah wah!

Judge: I'm sorry, you have an actual law degree?

Trump fan lawyer: wah wah...wah wah wah.   wah.

Judge: Shut up.  Your client is remanded.

Since he's pro law enforcement he should be excited to see other aspects of enforcement of the law. The Finding Out part.
 
2021-01-13 2:08:28 PM  
And yet, he still took a stand.
 
2021-01-13 2:08:38 PM  
I raided the capitol as part of a violent insurrection and all I got for it was this felony conviction. Wanna see my jailhouse ink?
 
2021-01-13 2:08:57 PM  
Well, the guys been right about one thing, he's no magician.

Or much of a lawyer truth be told.

I don't by any of these excuses. I really hope more serious charges are coming forthwith. I get the waiting till noon on the 20th, though, so they won't be pardoned

I was disappointed and annoyed by Cuomo's treatment of those two. He playfully bought into their story tongue firmly in cheek. I was hoping for him to eviscerate them, oh well.
 
2021-01-13 2:09:38 PM  
Hey, if you're pro law enforcement you're gonna love this verdict where the laws you broke are enforced.  Win win.

Was going to post that, his reaction to the lawyer was hilarious.
 
2021-01-13 2:11:17 PM  
Now, for decades and centuries to come, our descendants will be able to witness him witnessing history. I hope they learn from it.

The lawyer in TFA is insanely inconsistent, but you know, that's lawyering I guess.

He bangs on about what a great family guy his client is and what a responsible citizen but then completely divorces from reality with that crap about him just being there "to witness history" when he was clearly contributing to the chaos and, contrary to being a great member of society, is not taking personal responsibility.

Being a great family guy and member of society is a possible mitigating factor in sentencing, but it's no defense. He was photographed participating, it's completely unhelpful not to jump on that with a plea of guilty and a huge mea culpa, got caught up in a weird moment under the unhealthy influence of the President etc. Then crack out the nice guy family stuff and beg the court for mercy. Don't bullshiat them, don't pretend this is smaller than it is and lay the blame on thickly with the President confusing your client.
 
2021-01-13 2:12:19 PM  
Did he actually get the lectern out the building? I'd have thought that would move it from vandalism to clear theft.
 
2021-01-13 2:12:35 PM  
Can I make a suggestion for the next time you want to "witness some history?"  Only a 20 minute walk from the Capital, bring your friends.

Prosecutor: Nothing that guy just said is bullshiat. Prosecution rests.

/I'm starting to think this defense attorney isn't a very good one. Unlike Vinny.

You're going to hear a LOT of "Oopsie, high spirits" in these hearings, in part because I have no doubt most people were just along for the ride. Using the Clown Parade as cover for an actual raid on the Capitol with a specific intent is pretty much how I believe the insurrection unfolded, by design. While everyone's watching the derp with the horns play the Berzerker, Ziptie Zeke goes looking for Pelosi.

There are levels to this. Some of them may have been thinking "Awesome party, dude!" while some were thinking, "Well, I thought if you don't get your way in an election, you have a revolution. Isn't that just what you do? Was that wrong? Should I not have done that?" And then there were the people who were there and playing for keeps. Either way, per usual with white supremacy, the useful idiots vastly outweighed those there with genuine intent.

Every American army loots when they attack. Baghdad and Cairo museums are shambles. They landed their helicopters in ancient ruins and archaeological sites. That's the USA for you. Seriously, Americans have no moral high ground after their trophies from Vietnam, Japan, Russia, Iraq, Afghanistan. She did as the Yankke Doodles always do. Enjoy your own farking around and finding out. Have you served? If yes, then that woman is who you are.

Stop this. These people are not broke. They are not poor, they do not live in trailers in the middle of nowhere. They are not desperate for help.

They are real estate agents, CEOs, state representatives. They own businesses, own homes, and own weapons. These are your suburban neighbors.

He's so Pro-Law Enforcement that now he gets to see it from the inside!

Isn't that how it goes.
 
2021-01-13 2:16:31 PM  
"Pro-law enforcement" is a euphemism for authoritarian white nationalist.
 
2021-01-13 2:16:36 PM  
He is a family man. His wife is a physician. He has five children.

Oh, well then, our mistake.  Do carry on with your life.

Ok, and?

He's still guilty as f*ck.

Should have just said he was standing up for social injustices. XD
They'd put his name on NFL helmets then! hahahaha

I myself go to museums to witness great art.

I often grab one or more works of art to witness them further in the comfort of my own home.

We saw how much "blue lives" matter to Trumpy children last week, when one of them bashed a cop's skull with a fire extinguisher.

These lawyers are idiots, and this is the third story on Fark that I've seen about said idiots.
 
2021-01-13 2:20:37 PM  
Asinine and ignorant half-assed excuses like this are:
A: why people hate lawyers.
B: why these terrorists keep receiving death threats.

Dude farked up. Own up to tiur crimes, and take your punishment.

Lawyers also farked up too. Keep your mouths shut, and do what's best for your client and his family by keeping them safe instead of daring the public to incite violence against them with these ludicrous claims that are just taunting violence against your client and their associates. Are you trying to get them killed?

CSB/

Worked with a law and order guy. He always spouted the police wouldn't have stopped him if he wasn't doing something wrong or the police only arrest people if they are guilty. One day he got caught speeding and was throwing a fit because he wasn't going that fast. I reminded him that the police only stop the guilty.

/he was lucky, he liked to get a beer and a few nips for the ride home.

Here's his chance to "witness" the criminal justice system followed by a chance to "witness" the american penal system.
 
2021-01-13 2:22:19 PM  
Huh. Never thought of that defense. Let's see if it works in some other contexts.

I assaulted Little Round Top under Longstreet, but really I was just there to witness history.
I was a guard at Auschwitz, but really I was just there to witness history.
I flew a Zero at Pearl Harbor, but really I was just there to witness history.
I screamed racist epithets at the Little Rock Nine, but really I was just there to witness history.

Well...works for me. What say we all just let bygones be bygones and let these swell fellas go so as to promote unity.

But just so there's no future misunderstandings, how about we...
