Defendant was probably from Da 'Burgh previously.

Yinzers travel better and spread out over the country better than almost any other fan base.  I think it's a combination of team loyalty and following the employment opportunities.

Just the same, this guy should *never* have been let out.

Is this just permission to travel while on bail, or are they letting him out of jail for this?

Christ. The system will keep a black boy in the system without redress for months because some dickhead cop thought he might have stolen a backpack -- and then let these weasels just wander around wherever they want.

Scorpitron is reduced to a thin red paste: Christ. The system will keep a black boy in the system without redress for months because some dickhead cop thought he might have stolen a backpack -- and then let these weasels just wander around wherever they want.


A black boy cannot seek redress in the form of costs incurred via a selected lawyer paid to be sympathetic and fight for every afforded right.

Afforded means very different things, I yield.

Maybe they're going to put the guy up on the jumbo-tron and shine a spotlight on him, so a massive group of people can stomp him to death in the stands.

It's good to be white and politically aligned with the Judge.

Why even give a fark at this point.

Between them obviously getting away with overthrowing the government and their attempts to kill us all with Covid we are quickly reaching an event horizon of us vs. them.

Let's just get it over with a farking end then now. I am tired of fearing for my family because these assholes can't even be farking punished and shiat like this is empowering them.

Oh and while we're at it. Hang farking judges that terrorists out for farking football games.

House Arrest was a condition of bail.

This situation brings up a point:  Why don't we have those explosive collars that can be remotely detonated like they have in so many sci-fi stories?  Or the injectable 'splody things from Escape from New York?  It would make cash bail moot, and this guy could go anywhere he wants as long as he's back for his court date.

Only if he's driving...

The problem here isn't that this person gets to; it's that so many others awaiting trial wouldn't. Until you've been found guilty, the system is supposed to avoid restricting freedom except where a flight risk is in play. All of us are conditioned by a system that is incorrectly cruel and harsh (in a systemically racist way) to be offended by it acting surprisingly humanely, instead of being offended by the cruelty.

Prosecutors had no problem with it either. Whatever. Two justice systems and all that. In a decade or two after the Republicans attempt total control by essentially sidelining the Democratic Party, and after the blood that is spilled to correct that, the Constitution will be rewritten and hopefully rewritten for true representation by the people and a justice system that sees only one color.

Without knowing the Judge involved, I'd also like to point out that high-profile cases like this are prone with many pitfalls that may result in a successful appeal.

There's 2 options here: either the judge doesn't want to punish the guy, or the judge wants to be damn sure the sentence laid down sticks.

In this case, since none of the interested parties on the prosecution had a problem with his pre-determined, pre-purchased, and pre-planned (before the date of the alleged offense) travel? It might be grounds for successful appeal later if they can make an argument that the Judge had an axe to grind. Neither the prosecutor nor the pre-trial detention officer (I can't remember what they're called) had a problem with it and OK'd it. If anything, you need to be biatching at THEM.

Former NYC firefighter Thomas Fee facing arrest in Capitol riot

A former New York City firefighter with a history of racist accusations against him is being hunted by the feds in the Jan. 6 storming of the US Capitol - where he claimed to be "at the tip of the spear," authorities said Monday.


He sent out a selfie from inside the Capitol.

Not enough people understand how bail works. It's supposed to be the exception, not the norm, including here.

It's true in America, not so much in countries like N Korea and China, but around here, you aren't guilty until proven so in court, so incarcerating you before then is putting you in jail without having committed a crime. So no, bail is not supposed to be the norm.
