Give him the maximum sentence.

Actions have consequences.  This is the only way the others will learn.

"His social media comments reflect very ill-considered political hyperbole in very divided times and will certainly not be repeated in the future," Broden [his attorney] continued. "He looks forward to putting all of this behind him."

He can put everything behind him except for steel bars...

IF someone says they're going to kill you, and then they break into your house with things they intended to kill you with, I'd say that's "Attempted Murder" not sending strongly worded 'misguided' tweets.

Yeah, I think they have all the criminal elements to put together a solid case.

So will all the insurrectionists be charged with the lowest possible offense?Only charging with threatening instead of attempted murder/kidnapping is very white justice applied. I guess it is similar to when a white republican shoots at people but misses and is charged with unlawful discharge of a weapon but if a black man fires a gun off pointed at the sky he is charged with attempted murder because the round could fall back to earth and kill someone. This separate but equal charging doctrine has to change. When trying to prevent further acts of terrorism half measure do not work.

I was gonna ask if he looked like a product of incest before I saw the picture.


Confirmed incest after viewing the pic.

I, for one, very much look forward to all of what'll be put behind him in PMITA prison

Don't hurt America.

Jail them all.

Broden added that he doesn't believe there is evidence that Miller planned to carry out the threats.

Except for the fact that he stated that he had a rope in his bag, specifically for hanging people.

All Republicans are terrorists.

Indict and prosecute the lot.

You can be charged with conspiracy to murder, even if you didn't carry it out.  I hear nutraloaf can be spiced up by adding hot sauce and ramen seasoning packets. Guess he'll find out about that too.
 
2021-01-23 10:35:17 PM  
I suspect this is only the first of many "upgraded charges" we'll be seeing in the coming weeks. All those trespassing and illegal occupation charges are just placeholders while they sift through all the readily available evidence from the internet.

If you have any citations for anyone being charged with attempted murder for firing a gun into the sky, I'll need to see it. Attempted Murder is a specific-intent crime, which means that the suspect has to have a SPECIFIC target in mind in order to be charged with the crime. You can only be charged with attempted murder if you try to kill someone and they don't die.

The only way you could be charged with attempted murder under the circumstances you describe is if the bullet ACTUALLY hit someone and they lived; but even then the attempted-murder charge would be really hard to make stick.

They are being charged with the crimes that they can be proven to have committed. Not the crimes that GED lawyers think they did.

Ayyyyyyyyy

Making a threat on social media is dumb.

Taking steps towards the threat is prison dumb.

Taking steps to fulfill that threat you made against a federal politician and getting caught is goin' to federal pound-me-in-the-ass prison dumb.

He'd be lucky to last 30 seconds.

Schadenfreude in full effect here as I watch the wheels of federal justice slowly but continuously grind the insurrectionists under the full weight of the real deep state; the National Security Apparatus.

I'm okay with this. I really am. I think after 20 years in the pen he can put it all behind him. Maybe some solitary for quiet reflection would help.

Isnt this like a monthly thing for AOC at this point?  What committees will she be on?   I say put her on a committee charged with removing firearms from the mentally unstable.  Double down and increase her security detail.  This woman is a national treasure.

I never want to stop reading these stories. I want every single one of these people identified, collected and paraded before a judge to answer for what they did. I don't care if we're still reading about this in three years. Every. Single. One.

"Mr. Miller regrets the actions he took in a misguided effort to show his support for former President Trump," Broden said.

Fixed that for ya, bro-den.

You know, if you grow a beard then do something criminal or treason, you just shave off the beard and no one will know.
