Ain't nothing gonna happen. If this was a black event, we would have hundreds of life sentences, by now, with no possibility of parole, and an estimated 1000 more to come.

It's about six months and a week or so past the time to stop treating these assholes with kid gloves. They participated in violent insurrection. They're national security threats. None of them should see the outside of a cell until after their trials and sentences.

Of course, the people who led them should perhaps be held accountable at some point as well...but again, kid gloves.

If I no showed for a court hearing for just about any crime, I would be hunted down like a dog, thrown in jail, and denied bail. People who committed insurrection against the federal government and no show for their hearings should get the same treatment.
 
2021-07-16 5:23:22 PM  
I figure letting some of these assholes out on bail and keeping an eye on them is a good way to catch more assholes.

That, or we just suck.
 
2021-07-16 5:24:39 PM  
Maybe stop giving them slaps on the wrist and releasing them.

Why not both?

I'd be okay with them receiving worse treatment, tbh.

They shouldn't even be given the option of showing up for their hearings. People are denied bail all the time for less heinous offences than trying to overthrow our government.

If the past few years have taught me anything, it's that there's really no such thing as clever plans with the US Government, just regular, boring incompetence.

It's called pretrial release. You see, we give people trials before punishing them. They're not getting a "slap on the wrist" and then released, they're getting released until convicted of a crime.

The ones that didn't hurt anybody or break anything are being charged with low level, trespassing-level crimes that don't typically warrant remand.

I completely agree, but the cat is out of the bag on throwing them all in jail until their cases are decided since most of them were already offered bail.

I keep being reminded of the Mueller Report.

Can't think why...

I was in a detention center waiting room when I saw a young woman, there to bond her brother out, arrested on a bench warrant.

Do Not Pass Go.
Go Directly to Jail.

and, my, wasn't she surprised!

These are not smart people.

Subby, there's also TNR.

Trap, Neuter, Release.  And although it's more of a Caterday topic, the castration/spay works very well in keeping the feral colony quiet and very productive.  The only noises are warnings that a breeding outsider is trying to enter the community.    It's  either run off or it's also trapped, neutered, and released to become a good, quiet, and charming member of a calm group.   There are no new litters of cats, no overcrowding, no 3 am whining "in heat," the cats live longer, and stay healthier.

These benefits all go away with an ill timed early release.

No, you really wouldn't.  A sheriff might knock on your door, but unless you're accused of murder, they'll just wait until you drive by a cop and the plate reader shows you have a warrant.

If they started shooting long ago we wouldn't have riots.

I hear there are some nice facilities near our southern border where we could house them.

I was also thinking that we could do like we did with the Native Americans and give them their own little nations where they can keep their crazy to themselves.  Idiot reservations, if you will.

Yes, therein lies the joke.  You see, he did very bad things that warrant mentioning.  However, the tweet instead seems to be focusing on....
Oh, never mind.

Uh, citation please? People are generally granted bail unless there is a compelling reason to believe they would either commit another crime or attempt to flee. As I believe they generally should be. Pretrial custody is essentially punishing someone without due process. I think most people here would agree that it's a travesty people are held in jail for being unable to pay bail, I'm not sure why so many are fine with people's rights being taken away in this case.

Bail is a function of your flight risk and risk to society as a whole.

It is really just a way to punish poor people prior to trial, but hey, no one cares about the poors, anyway.

Yeah, if you want more trouble for these guys he just earned himself some, so be happy. Making a federal marshal come get you because you're too stupid to make your court date is an idiot move. He's also now created a material justification for holding him until trial.

Nah, they would eventually become states and get two Senators.

The cops were more than happy to beat and teargas the peaceful protesters, then magically disappear at nightfall so they can paint a looting narrative.
