Beryl Howell has more than earned the benefit of the doubt as a judge.
 
2021-03-04 11:40:03 AM  
Slap a GPS tracker on him. Then let him hang himself by monitoring his phone/internet after he gets home.
 
2021-03-04 1:22:28 PM  
Well, all whitey then.

Good thing he didn't get caught with a small amount of marijuana
 
2021-03-04 2:05:15 PM  
So he did all the illegal things, including shouting orders through a megaphone, but because there's no evidence that he personally attacked anyone then the evidence is weak?

I am chuckling over the "wife kept ex-boyfriend's passport in a jewelry box by her bed" storyline.  There must be quite the tale there.

How long until they start wearing "Bin Laden Did Nothing Wrong" shirts? I feel like we're pretty close to that point.

El_Swino: I am chuckling over the "wife kept ex-boyfriend's passport in a jewelry box by her bed" storyline.  There must be quite the tale there.


It's a short story: She kept her ex's passport because her current boyfriend asked her to. They look similar enough that he could have used it to flee the country.

So for the trial of the cop that killed Flyodd we have what 3k troops and cops because black folk might show up.

Meanwhile the white people that tried to murder our government are getting released on bail and we have less than 1k troops in DC.

This is exactly what systemic racism is. This is sick as fark and these traitors need to be hung from the neck until dead.

Also, fark you and your he didn't directly hurt someone. That shiat doesn't work when you order a hit or are standing by a fight directing traffic during a beatdown, so it doesn't work here.

These judges sound VERY white.

Nordean's repeated invocation of rhetoric about "1776" was not merely chatter. "This was not just an affection for three-corner hats and saltwater taffy."

Sorry, it must be because I went to public school.  Exactly what does saltwater taffy have to do with the American Revolution?

GardenWeasel: Slap a GPS tracker on him. Then let him hang himself by monitoring his phone/internet after he gets home.


They did.

"Howell ordered that Nordean be released to home detention with GPS monitoring in the Seattle area, where he lives. He'll be permitted to return to Washington, D.C., only for court hearings and, with permission, to meet his lawyers."

If you went to a school where you had access to field trips where you go to colonial/americana sites, there's always a saltwater taffy shop in a period-looking building selling it to the school kids.

Even Old Sacramento has one.

Won't anyone think of those poor, lonely single men in prison who just want a chance to get to know the insurrectionists?

No liar, you were not told that.
You have had it explained to you and the rest of your missing chromosome buddies multiple times now.
You don't get it because you don't want to get it.
You are a traitor, and you should suffer the fate of a traitor.

Generals never have underlings that do their biddings. That is why the positions of Cpt., Mjr., Lt. and Private don't exist.

The proud boys were useful idiots for Trump and a way for dipshiats like you to deflect.

Do you guys remember the whole "Bunker Baby" scandal when Trump went downstairs as there were violent crowds just outside the White House perimeter?  Now Biden has tens of thousands of troops to protect him from a small group of people that have been in jails scattered across the country for the last two months. Does he get a nickname yet?

Yes. President Biden.

You're not even trying anymore. This is low-grade, I expect more from you.

Exactly.  You can make your reality be anything to fit your own pre conceived notions.

That's how you keep pesky things like the actual facts from getting in the way!

What's important is that we hate Trump. We wanted him impeached.  And we just had to figure out a way to make that happen, actual facts be damned

Judge Howell has proven she's no pushover. If she says prosecutors have backed off what they say they can prove and this arsehole qualifies for monitored release I'll buy it.

Organized Nazi terrorists like the Proud Boys were pre-positioned. People like the terrorist in TFA.

They used the economically anxious rabble of drooling remedials to help them carry out their terrorist plot. People like, well, you.

For the 2000th time. Bail is to ensure you show up to trial. It's not meant to be used as a punishment before you are tried and convicted

One week later, they wonder why he's stopping by every tree in the neighborhood, go over to investigate, and find the tracker on the dog.

Even Old Sacramento has one.


Michigan's version of that is called "Greenfield Village," and it features saltwater taffy sold by ladies in period dresses and bonnets.

I don't understand the connection, but it seems prevalent.

That Guy What Stole the Bacon: Paul Baumer: Beryl Howell has more than earned the benefit of the doubt as a judge.

Well, I'm sold...


She's detained numerous rioters without bond, ruled against the Trump Made Me Do It defense, and before that was the judge that ruled that the House Judiciary was entitled to Mueller grand jury info prior to impeachment I. She's been great, and a 2010 Obama appointee.

Biden, who appeared in public at his inauguration, on a day when people like you were predicting the new Civil War to install your messiah, Trump, days after you people invaded and attempted to assassinate the VP and members of Congress.  Yes, he gets the nickname, Balls of Steel.
