Is Dennis Brust also a writer for "The Onion" and this just got submitted by accident to the wrong publication?
Please, Tom, look into whether civil asset forfeiture money plays into whether Wiggins wants another K9.
Of course the War on Drugs is a failure but it justifies bigger police departments.
It's clearly the skills of the crony monopolist Realtors earning that 6% to unlock a door every once in a while and has nothing to do with Bubbles Yellen.
No need for a super-secret special grand jury on this one by Barkey. I guess David is right: she's not part of the in-crowd. It seems like he is probably correct when rightfully comparing this case with other potential prosecutions of risk to children by the police. Wouldn't be her gender, would it? Of course not.
Should be held to a higher standard! I am doubled-over laughing at that. I'd be happy if they were held to just the same standard.
Will the City Attorney handle this on his own or will taxpayers be Foote-ing the bill for an outside law firm?
Was Arnold actually a traitor? Or did the Radical Patriots of Pennsylvania led by Joseph Reed just want to exchange London control for Philadephia control? Did Arnold see through it and realize the Cause of Liberty was just propaganda? Becky Akers does a fine job fleshing it out, in novel form in "Abducting Arnold", in addition to several non-fiction articles she has written.
Barkey had foreordained no prosecution. Would a private security guard have already been fired under similar circumstances? If so, we have a big tell that the justice system is like the military justice system--different spanks for different ranks.
David, I had that same conversation with a black man pulled over for "speeding" across from my house yesterday. I told him that they let old white dudes in Beemers speed all the time.
I still maintain this was a "cop"-out by Barkey taking this to the grand jury. Who will ever know if it was criminal negligence? I am sure Barkey emphasized the most mitigating factors and de-emphasized the most aggravating. He could have easily saved the jurors' and defense attorney's time by writing the same report and saying there may be enough to indict but it would be a waste of time to try and get a conviction beyond reasonable doubt. Instead, he cost everyone time and money going after Bantle and even Kleiber.
Sad no one is running against him, though with his incompetence fewer people are in jail (good) but defense attorneys are making more dough--less good.
JJ, I second that.
