They're already tipping their hand that they'll go after the people who attacked the Capitol while ignoring the people who planned, incited, coordinated, and directed the attack. They're going to let the big fish off the hook yet again.

No they're not.

Did you submit this Snackbar?

You can argue with me all you want, but the article says what the article says.

Meh.  I could swear there's another thread where we covered this.

Prosecutors wear klan robes and maga hats during the weekends or what?

The posts themselves may not be evidence but I do believe they fit the technical definition of a "lead". Most probably aren't credible but they should still be checked out. I'd like to know what and how the FBI determines which are credible. I know it may take a lot of man hours to do the work but that's their job.

Yeah, I'd love to hear the reasoning behind this. It looks incredibly stupid on its face.

Seems to be a lot of conflation in the article.

If I posted on Jan 5th that I was going to do your mom the next day but I didn't, then it would be hard to link me to the hundreds that did do your mom, even if I provided detailed plans on how to enter.

Also,

No.  I think that's enough.

That's definitely part of the problem. Joe Six-Pack talking about this while actually sitting at home is not the same as an Oath Keeper making tactical plans with his group. I can't even imagine the work needed to sort some of this shiat out. Some of it's easy and obvious, but I bet 99% of the posts that they're sifting thru have all of the weight of a standard fark post.

It just says things that are different than what you think it does. The courts treat public comments about politics with kid gloves, and you can say all sorts of incendiary bullshiat on an anonymous public forum without getting into trouble that you probably couldn't in a sleezy dive bar nearing midnight.

You, of all Internet Tough Guys, should recognize the wisdom of this.

Prosecutors know what will stand up in court, and what won't. So if they say they don't have anything that will pass muster with the courts, I have no reason to disbelieve them.

Finally, actual big fish aren't stupid enough to go bragging about their insurrection plans online. They're the ones who are signing the checks in the background. And I guarantee you that the FBI is looking into that really well. That takes time to gather, and I'm sure they're playing their cards close to the vest for good reasons.

Look closely at those guys. They are all tweeked to break some heads and kill some people, and they think it's cool AF

Once again, "cops don't write cops."

Oath Keepers are current and retired law enforcement, so the Feds aren't going to go after them.

At least one in five of the people on the ground in DC were off-duty law enforcement according to some recent reports. There is no sign of any consequences for them either. I expect there's someone in the prosecutor's office assigned to filter them out before any charges are filed.

Reminds me of this Aliens video clip where Burke turns off the TV monitor showing Ripley and Newt locked in a room while under attack from facehuggers.

The monitor is the evidence that Burke doesn't want anyone else to see, so the monitor is the social media evidence, and Burke is like the prosecutor who wants to hide the evidence.

Maybe those prosecutors were installed by Trump?

If these arseholes weren't white they'd all be rotting in a landfill right now with about six pounds of lead in each body and Republicans would be cheering about the "decisive response to terrorism."

"Oath Keepers is an American far-right[1] anti-government[2][3] militia organization[4] composed of current and former military, police, and first responders...". -- Wikipedia

And their farking website says the same thing. Not gonna link it.

The Cops don't write Cops bit?

Then why, for example, have the six Seattle PD officers and many NYPD officers identified in the riot not been charged or faced any consequences?

Because they know where this may lead and they don't want to go there.

I didn't make up "cops don't write cops." It was made up by cops who were pissed that one of your own called them out on something.

But back to the facts, 20 farking percent of the Capitol rioters were cops, and like two have been named or charged. I'm not comfortable with the fact that any percentage of NYPD worked to overturn legitimate election results with violence are driving around charged with keeping civilian scum like me in line with deadly force.

Maybe because there's still an investigation going on?

What is your hellbent mode of operation of insisting cops don't ever get charged with crimes?

We just had a major conviction with Chauvin.
