I recommend necktie parties for treason weasels.

I guess treason ain't what it used to be in the good ol days.

The terms treason and sedition, in the United States, seem to be going the way of the phrase, 'no one is above the law.'

I don't take much on faith anymore. When I see these being applied, I'll believe in them.

A lot of these folks are like this guy --- quick to rat out their fellow insurrectionist buddies in return for a lesser sentence.
 
2022-08-10 1:06:51 PM  
He gave them evidence on another traitor. That deserves something.
 
2022-08-10 1:07:20 PM  
Because he cooperated and provided incriminating details about his cohort.  Let this be a lesson to anyone who still feels loyalty to Trump...get youself some of that sweet, sweet plea bargain.

Waiting to see how many decades in the cemetery or jail that any democrats would get, if they stormed a capitol to stop an election.

So put a twenty on his commissary account.

our justice system is shocking in its disparate impact. It's farking shameful.

Remember when public officials were held to higher standards?  Yeah, me neither.

As per the Constitution, treason is very narrowly defined.  And you cannot commit it without a Congressional declaration of war.  Which hasn't happened since WWII.  It has literally been impossible to commit treason since 1945.  Everything in the Cold War was for other charges, not treason.

Yeah, a long enough drop to snap the neck vs strangulation.

If only someone had had the foresight to sprinkle a bit of cocaine on him during the arrest.

I remember a Jimmy Stewart movie featuring higher standards for public officials.
Oh, and some guy named Ike once said something about the military industrial complex. Then he beat up Tina Turner and that was that.

This is true.

And you cannot commit it without a Congressional declaration of war.

This is not.

As attested to by two or more witnesses:

If you make war on America, you have committed treason.  It matters not if the congress declares war on you.

If you provide aid and comfort to America's enemies, you have committed treason.  It matters not if congress has declared war on that enemy.

What's his Frack handle?
 
2022-08-10 1:28:25 PM  
This guy is 30, pleaded guilty to a felony, participated in the insurrection (so the left will always hate him), but turned state's evidence against fellow insurrectionists (so the right will always hate him / never trust him).  He'll be lucky to get a job at McDonald's.

Public execution would be nice, but forever being branded a felon and ostracized by everyone, regardless of political affiliation, is still something, regardless of (lack of) jail time.

In some ways, spending five years in federal prison and coming out as a hero of the far right might be a preferable fate.

How do you define "America's enemies"?

He should get special treatment because he's a police officer.


No, wait, the opposite

That would be a question for the jury.

People like him (and I know he's an "ex-cop") should at a minimum, (1) lose the ability to ever be employed in law enforcement ever again and (2) forfeit any pension / future health benefits acquired for existing service.

Fark them all with the fury of a thousand suns. Handling them like they were littering is going to bite us all in the ass.
 
2022-08-10 1:53:29 PM  
He'll get over it.
 
2022-08-10 2:03:29 PM  
Does he at least lose his pension and social security?

The article calls him a BLM protester, but it also only says that he set a fire during the protest. Considering the fact that many people were there just to sow chaos and not actually join the protests, how does the author connect the two?

That would only erode public trust in law enforcement.

/this is what cop-lovers actually believe
