Dear Liz:

You are a law professor, right? Well, I’ve got a legal question for you:

Isn’t the tweet above both a lie and a libel?

Bernie at least somehow managed to avoid using the word “murder:”

But … “end police violence against people of color”???

    Michael Brown was murdered by a white police officer

    Libel, noun
    1. [LAW] a published false statement that is damaging to a person’s reputation; a written defamation. | Synonyms: defamation, defamation of character, character assassination, calumny, misrepresentation; aspersions, denigration, vilification, slander, …

    ____________________

    Why aren’t statements like Warren’s here punishable by libel law? I don’t get it.

    Why even have libel laws if they can’t be applied to this kind of case? She has defames and libeled of Darren Wilson (b.1986; the sad post-script: After being fired from the police force by a CNN-led pitchfork mob, he went into a period of unemployment and eventually surfaced as a minimum-wage-or-so shoe salesman at a chain store).

    Wilson did nothing wrong and was not convicted of ‘murdering’ Brown. Her libel of Wilson hurts all Whites, but especially White Christian males, a mass blood-libel against over one hundred million people on this continent. And it seems empirically proven, now, to have caused thousands of excess deaths these past five years.

    What is the solution to this kind of cheap, anti-White demagoguery:

    An American ex-CEO and current right-wing think tank leader, Curt Doolittle, proposes making all political statements subject to libel law, a one-fell-swoop way to take back a dramatic amount of ground:

    [MORE]

    Yes it is possible to use this methodology to plug holes in our common law, our legislative processes, and our judicial processes. Because the method, by producing a formal logic of the ‘soft (human)’ sciences enables and forces judgements made not by interpretation but by application of that logic.

    The prosecution of lies in the commons is possible because today we successfully suppress fraud in commercial speech, and in the past we used to prosecute scolding, libel, slander, fraud, fraud by omission, fraud by conspiracy, and treason in defense of the commons (King’s Peace).

    We allowed the state and the left to use the hole in ‘free speech’, rather than free truthful speech, to destroy our protections of the informational commons. And we did not repair the holes in the constitution

    So “Lock Her Up” — Warren, that is — for libel, for incitement to hatred against a specific race (White-European-Christians in the USA) and thus treason. Maybe no need to lock her up, but do convict her of libel.

  13. Tiny Duck says:

    I’m shocked that in this, “we crave authenticity” era of ours she’s going to get away with impersonating a minority for personal gain!

    We’re an odd society……

  15. Bubba says:

    Warren proves (again) she is not qualified to be a professor at a TTT (Third Tier Toilet) law school, let alone Harvard.

    Given that Wilson’s account is corroborated by physical evidence and that his perception of a threat posed by Brown is corroborated by other eyewitnesses, to include aspects of the testimony of Witness 101, there is no credible evidence that Wilson willfully shot Brown as he was attempting to surrender or was otherwise not posing a threat.

  16. Fauxcahontas….blah blah blah and yet she is a contender. Like Hillary, Warren is innumerate and doesn’t understand how the electoral college works. Nevertheless, just a few more years of invasion and we’re done. The excesses of the left were met with punishing losses at the polls starting in the late 1960s. Hard leftists didn’t change their stripes, but they did begin the long march through he institutions and seasoned Democrats responded politically by changing their rhetoric and putting forth more ostensibly “moderate” candidates to appeal to the majority. Well, the majority ain’t what (or, more importantly, who) they used to be. Two and half years into broken promises from Trump vis-a-vis immigration restriction and there does seem to be an inevitability to true leftist domination of the U.S. Trump may get another term, and perhaps he’ll pull an Obama and implement policies that he wanted but didn’t dare champion during his first term. I wouldn’t wager too much on that, though. Even the implementation of some mild immigration restrictionist policies during a theoretical second term wouldn’t be enough because there will be no subsequent mainstream Republican who dares to embrace Trump’s campaign rhetoric or promised policies and there are few glittering rich outsiders who will run and self-fund a Trump-like campaign.

  33. According to Merriam-Webster, the common definition of murder is: “to kill (a human being) unlawfully and with premeditated malice.”

    So this is what they are accusing Wilson of doing in their tweets to the entire country. This could obviously expose him to violent retribution by BLM or Antifa types.

    Of course, no one charged him and I do believe he was effectively cleared of wrongdoing by an exhaustive investigation. All the candidates know, or should know, these facts.

    As far as I know, there is no “politician defense” that allows you to say: “Hey, I’m a slimy politician, so everyone is on notice that I’m lying whenever my lips are moving. If you take me seriously, that’s on you.”

    I think Wilson could (and should) sue for liable.

    Trump just caved on guns and social media. Functionally he’s worse than a President Hillary as he makes the Woke mad and hoping to kill us. Literally as in the Hunt and Last Supper.

    This is why Dems want your guns. So the Michael Browns can vibrantly enrich us. No need for camps. When vibrant enrichment is around the corner.

  35. Hopscotch says:

    When it comes to organizing legal efforts, the Left makes conservatives look like fools. The Left has no shortage of legal funds to handle this scenario, where if Anne Coulter or Rush Limbaugh said the equivalent, they would be hit with a lawsuit the next day.

    Even if the police officer wished to sue, it is guaranteed:
    – his name will be dragged back through the mud, worsening (already meager) employment prospects.
    – he will need to take time off work to sue, and presumably, find a lawyer to work on contingency since he is broke.

    It’s even worse in the case of a newspaper or media outlet, since they can both insure against libel and will often be heard by a sympathetic judge, if it even makes it to trial. This creates a massive asymmetry, where defendants basically risk higher insurance premiums (and the occasional settlement) and a small-time plaintiff, often risks their livelihood and their family’s quality of life for the foreseeable future

    In a world of crowd-funding, conservatives could be empowering these plaintiffs and coordinating them for maximum damage. But other than cases like Hogan v. Gawker or egregious cases like Oberlin, conservatives let the Left operate with impunity.

    5 years ago Michael Brown was murdered by a white police officer in Ferguson, Missouri.

    Yes. Indeed he was.

    12 years ago, in January of 2007, in Knoxville, Chris Newsom and his girlfriend Channon Christian were hijacked from their vehicle, tortured, raped, battered and brutalized in every imaginable way by 5 blacks. Channon got the worst of it, being sexually assaulted every way you could think of, had bleach poured down her throat, then a plastic bag placed over her head and she was stuffed into a garbage can and left there to slowly suffocate. “Prior to this, they allegedly tried to strangle her, but she regained consciousness when they stopped putting pressure around her neck.” By the way, by all reports, they were nice kids, not trouble makers in any way.

    Now, Ms Warren, have you even heard of these crimes? If you did, that would be a miracle, because they received almost no coverage in the mainstream media except locally.

    So, if you please, piss off.

    Why are they all focusing on how many times Brown was shot?

    I guess the focus groups tend to pick up on that part, and/or they’re all following the same script. But I don’t quite get it. Would they feel better if Brown had only been shot five times? Four? Less?

    …Thinking about it, I recall the late great Patrice O’Neal, on the Opie and Anthony show, talking about some then-recent police shooting, and Patrice – who is black – seemed very upset that the officers had shot that year’s Michael Brown some forty-odd times. (Three or four officers more or less emptying their guns into a car that was driving at them, as I recall.) I think he felt that the volume of bullets, being excessive, indicated that the violence was unnecessary, and therefore that the officers were just cruel and sadistic. (“Stark raving beasts,” as the LAPD’s Dudley Smith once said in a similar situation.)

    So perhaps that’s how “shot six times” reads to the public: He only needed to shoot him once, but he shot him six times! He’s a psychopath!

    Of course, commenters here know that the police are trained to shoot at a deadly threat non-stop until it ceases to be a deadly threat. Nobody wants to be the jackass who shoots an assailant once and then gets stabbed to death by him anyway. Imagine how silly you’d feel.

    Recent 23andMe studies suggest the US White non-Hispanic genepool stands at <0.30% Amerindian as a mean (a big, often-quoted 2014 study found 0.18%, and with a large enough standard deviation that many/most of us clock-in at 0.0% and a few people do indeed have several percent, e.g. the people with one great-grandparent who had significant Red Indian ancestry. Warren, of course, passed herself off as even more Amerind still than that).

    I doubt Officer Wilson wants to litigate whether he committed murder or not. He avoided a trial on this matter and it would be foolhardy to interject Mike Brown’s murder into the court system. I can’t imagine any lawyer would advise Officer Wilson to testify on the events of that day as he is still under statute of limitations for homicide. The Ferguson Police Department is likely indemnifying Officer Wilson for civil claims against him and since there has already been a civil settlement with the Brown family, I doubt the Department wants Officer Wilson reigniting any issues with respect to the Brown killing.

    Elizabeth Warren is a fine exemplar of the fact that women never admit they’re wrong.

    Judging from the numbers, Warren’s debate performance hurt her quite a bit. She’s gone from the teens to 8%. Democratic women, who ought to be her natural backers, don’t care for her that much or she’d be at 50% instead of at 8% in the latest poll. Harris is as weak as ever at 6%. Harris’ inability to do better indicates that there’s a large, hard core of Democrats who simply hate her. It look a lot like voters are really turned off by the fact that Warren used her fake Indian claim to get ahead, and that Harris slept with an elderly Willie Brown to advance her career.

    Most Democratic voters don’t trust either of those women, and that includes the majority of female Democratic voters. If you assume Dem women are 50% of the Dem vote, and you add Harris and Warren’s percents together, that’s just 14%. 36% of the remaining Democratic vote total is female, and they’re refusing to back either Warren or Harris. Neither of them has the support that Hillary had.

    It doesn’t matter whether anyone can define MA. It’s undisputed that Wilson was attempting to defend himself. Even when the self-defense is “imperfect,” i.e. deadly force found not to have been necessary, the charge can only be manslaughter, never murder (admittedly a California analysis). So, the issue for the libel case would be whether Warren has any reason to believe that Wilson didn’t subjectively feel himself to be in danger. And she can’t.

    Eric Holder’s DOJ investigated Darren Wilson and stated this:

    The only possible basis for prosecuting Wilson under section 242 would therefore be if the government could prove that his account is not true – i.e., that Brown never assaulted Wilson at the SUV, never attempted to gain control of Wilson’s gun, and thereafter clearly surrendered in a way that no reasonable officer could have failed to perceive. Given that Wilson’s account is corroborated by physical evidence and that his perception of a threat posed by Brown is corroborated by other eyewitnesses, to include aspects of the testimony of Witness 101, there is no credible evidence that Wilson willfully shot Brown as he was attempting to surrender or was otherwise not posing a threat.

These sites are run by SJWs who screen the causes for political conformity and in the have past have shut down unacceptable crowd funding efforts and even confiscated the funds donated up to that point. Credit card companies will also close the payee accounts to stop donations being made by credit card. Any effort to crowd-fund Darren Wilson will be closed down within the first day.

    It is not sophistry, it’s cost benefit analysis. In light of everything, this would not be a case worth bringing. Officer Wilson should take solace that he avoided a criminal trial and is a free man. I agree that Officer Wilson was not exonerated, that’s why you should avoid litigating the issue where he likely would have to testify. Once you go to trial, you never truly know what might happen, especially with a St. Louis jury. There is a possibility that his testimony could open Officer Wilson up to criminal prosecution. It is simply not worth it. The City of Ferguson paid the Brown family an undisclosed sum for Mike Brown’s death. Neither the City of Ferguson nor Officer Wilson wants to disclose the nature of that settlement.

    This is not about moral righteousness, it is about legal strategy.

At the top of the funnel, you have a mainstream, conservative non-profit that takes funds from consumers, which then channels the funds into another non-profit via money transfer, so payment processors cannot stop it.

    2. Warren having free and unlimited access to the most cunning legal resources.
    3. Wilson having no money or any way of raising it.

    The “fact” is that Officer Wilson was not guilty of murder – he acted in self-defense. The “truth” is that Michael Brown, an unarmed black man, was shot 6 times by a white police officer. Joe Biden has already explained it – “truth” is more important than “facts” to Democrats.

    It’s no different for other groups – the “truth” that Bezos is a Jew is more important to some people than the “fact” that he isn’t. Excessive concern with facts is just hairsplitting. Facts are superficial – the truth is much deeper and lies, often hidden, under a layer of facts. The facts merely obscure Bezos’s “Jewish essence” which is much deeper than whether or not he is actually Jewish.

    This is essentially the same thing that Colbert used to make fun of “truthiness” (of course he only made fun of it when Conservatives did it) . When something is truthy it doesn’t have to be factually true – truthiness captures an essence which goes beyond mere facts, such as the “truth” that black people are oppressed in America. If you quibble about the facts of this particular case, you are in effect denying the greater truth, while proclaiming the lie illuminates the truth. This has been well known throughout history – it doesn’t matter whether or not George Washington literally chopped down a cherry tree – it merely served as an illustration of the truth that he was a man of impeccable honesty and integrity.

    The raw result of her 23andMe-like test was 0.35% Amerindian subject to a small margin of error.

    Recent 23andMe studies suggest the US White non-Hispanic genepool stands at <0.30% Amerindian as a mean (a big, often-quoted 2014 study found 0.18%, and with a large enough standard deviation that many/most of us clock-in at 0.0% and a few people do indeed have several percent, e.g. the people with one great-grandparent who had significant Red Indian ancestry. Warren, of course, passed herself off as even more Amerind still than that).

    It's safe to say that many tens of millions of White Americans have as much or more Amerindian trace ancestry than Elizabeth Warren.

    If a European person, from Europe I mean, moved to the USA and did a 23-and-me I’ll bet they would be assigned a small proportion of Amerind DNA in their results, if they took the test from home they would be assigned a little SSA or West Asia.

How many of your thousand-plus great-great-great-great-grandparents can you name, let alone share biographical information on? The whole foundation of her identity as a Red Woman rests on her ‘family lore,’ yet we have no way of knowing if that squaw DNA is even on the branch she asserts it is. Other members of the same family say they haven’t heard the stories (including those about the opposition to ‘interracial marriage’ faced by her ivory-white grandparents.) If you look through enough haystacks, sometimes you’ll find a needle. Hell, sometimes it’s not even the one you were looking for.

    If I tell my grandkids that Yakub the Scientist grew them out of a test tube in his subterranean Afrikan lab, and a 23andme twenty years later suggests 0.097% African DNA, that doesn’t make the narrative any less absurd.

    This explanation is incorrect. If I recall correctly, you are also a lawyer, so you had not ought to be explaining law incorrectly when laymen sincerely request explanations, and thereby spreading misinformation and confusion.

    Malice aforethought is not merely (or “basically”) “intend[ing] to cause…death.”

    Wilson (or Zimmerman, any number of people who shoot, stab, or even beat to death an attacker who was trying to kill them in the first place) and many others defending themselves, justifiably because of a reasonable fear of death or grievous bodily injury often do indeed intend to cause death. They are not acting with malice aforethought.

    If a man enters his bedroom to discover his wife in flagrante delicto with the mailman and, in a blind rage, attacks and kills them, even he has not acted with “malice aforethought.” For this reason he is unlikely to ever be convicted if first-degree murder in any jurisdiction. Malice aforethought requires just what the term itself suggests: premeditation. If the same fellow had discovered the adultery by other means, then decided to avenge himself by, say, laying in wait in the closet then shooting the lovers as they went at it, or if he had poisoned their tea, these acts would demonstrate malice aforethought.

    Traditionally, malice aforethought (or its absence) was a major distinguishing element between murder and manslaughter, and it remains (in some jurisdictions), an element to distinguish among different degrees of murder. However, the term has largely been abandoned in codified statutes addressing unlawful killing in the F.U.S.A., and perhaps your oversimplification of it is meant to acknowledge that and spare readers the nuances – but the discussion here is precisely about those nuances, and we are all big boys here. We can handle a bit of nuclear fission; no need to keep saying stars are “big balls of fire.”

    What you describe – mere intent to kill – is simply the mens rea of murder, an essential element of that crime, but nothing to do with the presence or absence of malice aforethought.

    I think Trump’ll cruise to victory anyway.

These people are likely to shift to Trump. They aren’t going to vote for a violent overthrow of themselves, white society, and white culture.

    If you look at the poll that was recently taken and add up the numbers of the top 10 Democratic candidates, they come up to 72%, not 100%. 28% of the Democrats surveyed didn’t like ANY of the Democratic candidates. That 28% is likely to either not vote, vote 3rd party, or vote for Trump. This isn’t a crowd coming together behind Obama in 2008. Over a quarter of Democratic supporters today can’t stand any of their own candidates. The best that any of those candidates can do is Biden at 29%. If Biden gets the nomination, and 71% of Democrats right now don’t think much of him, the Democrats are going to implode at the polls in 2020. Like I said, they either won’t vote, or they’ll vote third party, or they’ll vote for Trump as the less crazy option.

Two separate autopsies were performed, one by the local coroner and one by and out-of-town pathologist engaged by Michael Brown’s family.

    Both from a former job and one section of the family business, I’m all too familiar with lawyers and litigation.

    One would think that with the hordes graduating from law school every year, there’s be lots of hungry attorneys happy to take on conservative White Nationalist cases.

    But attorneys won’t take on conservative White Nationalist cases for 2 reasons.

    1 They know they’ll lose.
    2 Bar ethics forbid attorneys from taking cases they know have no merit.

    And in America a conservative or White cause has no merit. No merit doesn’t mean no merit morally. It means it’s un winnable because of anti conservative anti White laws and judicial precedents

    Also, there is a big difference between conservative causes and pro White causes.

    Darren Wilson’s is a pro White cause, not a conservative cause. The Covington Catholic Prep students cause is a pro White cause. It’s not a conservative cause despite the fact the boys were in DC, the realm of Satan, for an anti abortion demonstration.

    Plenty of catholic high school students sent students to march in the demonstration. We all know that if the homeless Indian had shoved his drum into the face of a Hispanic looking, Spanish surname Catholic school girl the anti White anti catholic media wouldn’t have done a thing when the homeless Indian sent his video to the TV channels

    Really, he’s an Indian grifter activist and can’t even hustle enough grant money to rent a cheap studio apt ?

    There’s conservative causes such as anti abortion, anti labor union abolish minimum wage, wars on behalf of Israel anti gay&tranny

    Then there’s White causes. White causes and conservative causes have nothing in common

    Perhaps you don’t understand how a parliamentary system works: Merkel was not directly elected — Merkel sunk to Trump-ish approval levels (ie < 50%) in 2016, and never recovered significantly — she is (still) Kanzlerin because her party's (CDU) parliamentary (Bundestag) candidates got enough votes in the 2017 Bundestagswahl (link), that it was possible to continue the Große Koalition (GroKo) with the SPD — because the CDU got more votes than the SPD, she stayed Kanzlerin — not long after the election, she gave up her post as head of the CDU, meaning when she finishes her time as Kanzlerin, ie at the end of her term, due to her resigning, or a no confidence vote, she is finished in politics — since 2017, both the CDU and SPD have sunk in the polls, the SPD to historic lows, eg in some surveys less than 15% — so the GroKo is generally unpopular — but a lot of Merkel’s policies are little different from those of the Green Party, which has risen in the polls, generally to around 20% — so the GroKo would survive any no confidence vote because the Greens would vote in support of the GroKo.

    In a few weeks there will be regional elections in several former East German Bundesländer — it is virtually assured that the AfD will emerge as the strongest party in each of those elections.

    He wasn’t indicted because there was no probable cause.

    This can be stated even more strongly: even the DOJ investigation found that all the physical evidence corroborated Wilson’s version of events.

    The official DOJ report can be read in full here –> link to PDF — in the final section it says: Given that Wilson’s account is corroborated by physical evidence and that his perception of a threat posed by Brown is corroborated by other eyewitnesses, to include aspects of the testimony of Witness 101, there is no credible evidence that Wilson willfully shot Brown as he was attempting to surrender or was otherwise not posing a threat.

    The conclusion: For the reasons set forth above, this matter lacks prosecutive merit and should be closed.

    It’s interesting that so long after the event, people are still confused about the legal/judicial resolution of the case.

    Two separate autopsies were performed,…

    I think there were a total of 3: Brown’s parents also arranged an autopsy — my comment at the time was that they should have gone for the Guinness world autopsy record.

    Last but not least: in the investigations, both by the local Grand Jury and by the DOJ, it became very clear that a number of witnesses (all black of course) lied under oath, some multiple times — this is normally a felony — but in the interest of “community healing”, a deliberate decision was taken not to prosecute these perjurers — people should remember that — also that a lot of the initial outrage followed by rioting and destruction was due to what these liars said.

    Alden is not wrong to say such conjectures and questions can rapidly dissolve into nuances I’m not the best person to explain, but for what it is worth, I offer a basic response, assuming good faith.

    What … Fields suddenly became angry at the rioters blocking his right of way and deliberately drove into them?

    The qualifier suddenly makes this question tricky. Malice aforethought does not require months of planning. It might occur in only a moment or two, as when the unwelcome guest leaves briefly, only to return from his automobile with a sidearm and murder the host for being inhospitable. (One of Steve’s go-to examples of urban murder is in the context of such tiffs at parties.) Your example above seems most like that situation.

    In contrast, the classic example of a cuckold in a rage suggests a state of mind like what nowadays people like to call “temporary insanity” – a certain lack of volition at all. Just how suddenly Fields may have become angry, and just how genuine and reasonable such anger (or fear; in my opinion the more likely relevant emotion) may have been is a question largely for a finder of fact – a jury.

    Alternatively, what if … Fields drove forward into them not caring whether or not they got out of the way, not caring whether he hit them or not?

    Well, now you have presented a classic example of what was called “depraved-heart murder” at common law: acting such that one knows or should know there is a certainty or even a probability that his actions will cause the death of another (or others), notwithstanding any intent to kill as such. Lobbing heavy stones off an overpass at motorists below, discharging a firearm in a crowd, filling a punch-bowl with poison, and so on are other examples of it. Nowadays, such acts usually qualify as second-degree murder in most jurisdictions.

    PS: “what happened was that” (and similar constructions, like “the reason was because”) is universally and always an extraneous phrase; strive to avoid it.

The trouble is that an insufficient share of the German public has tired of disorder, population replacement, and Brussels. Other than Alternative for Germany, there is no organized resistance to these phenomena, and AfD is good for about 13% of the vote right now. The Green Party is poised to establish itself as the plurality party in Germany, displacing the Christian Democrats and the Social Democrats. They’re for open borders, more or less.

    Ballistics analysis indicates that Wilson fired a total of 12 shots, two from the SUV and ten on the roadway. Witness accounts and an audio recording indicate that when Wilson and Brown were on the roadway, Wilson fired three gunshot volleys, pausing in between each one. According to the autopsy results, Wilson shot and hit Brown as few as six or as many as eight times, including the gunshot to Brown’s hand. Brown fell to the ground dead as a result of a gunshot to the apex of his head.

    In re Germany, let the dead bury the dead. Cannot be salvaged.

    Unfortunately, yes. The surviving Germans are hopeless.

    just walled off from people willing to defend themselves.

    Like the Hungarians & the Poles. Possibly even the Italians. God bless them all.

    There are some here who are capable of understanding all of the nuances of malice aforethought (in any case an archaic concept) and others who are not. I was trying to dash off a quick 3 line answer and based upon what I judged to be the sophistication of the questioner and not write an answer for a crim law exam. Honestly, the answer to almost any question today is “ask google” so 3 lines is more than he deserved. I don’t disagree with anything that you wrote. What I wrote was not so much “wrong” as incomplete, but I was not attempting a comprehensive treatment.

    Why so incredulous? When you reach for a gun, your hand is presumably closer to (and at least in line with) that gun. I am very interested in counterexamples. It was the first shot, so it surely wasn’t aimed.

    The incredulity pertains to the allegation that Brown reached inside the car and tried to grab the officer’s gun. Who does that? It sounds totally insane and possibly fabricated.

    But a point blank wound to the hand (did the forensics prove it was point blank?) would seem to at least be consistent with that crazy story.

    Having said that, isn’t it more likely that the officer tried to grab Brown from inside the cab?

    Ask a criminal lawyer in the state in which it happened instead of posting inane asinine questions to someone who isn’t a criminal attorney in the state in which the incident occurred.

    Sure guy, let’s have a rule where no lawyer here can write about the law unless the legal subject falls within his narrow practice area and there is a relevant specific fact pattern that happens to be in his jurisdiction. Not a constitutional law scholar or the situation is not in your circuit? Don’t dare discuss constitutional law.
    Not a criminal lawyer or the criminal situation is not in your jurisdiction? Shut up. Don’t even discuss general concepts because doing so is useless because we don’t know if they’d apply to an actual case. (Why don’t you direct your criticism at Autochthon?)

    And laypersons should be barred from discussing the law at all, except to ask questions. Or I guess not even that?

    Hear, hear! I’ve written a hojillion profound things containing this word, and long since given up writing anything containing the word after realising it would never be permitted, even though its use was integral to my points, yet here comes this fellow, and he has carte blanche?

    It’s bad enough when a word is decided to have such evil, magic powers it cannot be spoken or written, but worse still when it may be spoken or written sometimes, and others not, according to arbitrary whims.

    Yes it went before a grand jury. Ordinarily the prosecutor offers a recommendation in addition to presenting evidence. In that case he just presented the evidence and they elected to no-bill the officer.

    No clue why the Department of Justice fancies there are 8 wounds when the pathologists find four. No clue what sort of duty gun he had but most skeptical it held 12 rounds.

    This isn’t a crowd coming together behind Obama in 2008.

    You’re absolutely 100% right on that and I didn’t give it much of a thought until you pointed it out. And I didn’t realize so many Democrats were disillusioned and may shift to Trump. If true, then it would be a political earthquake bigger than Trump’s win in 2016 and far more interesting to analyze.

    It’s unfortunate that Trump’s only option to win will be by default since most of his opponents are insane. He’s been a complete failure on everything that ignited his enthusiastic crowds during the campaign – immigration, the wall, government reform and now he is backtracking on gun rights. He posts silly, obnoxious tweets and then does whatever the incompetent, social-climbing duo Javanka tell him. Sometimes I wonder if Trump should just run as a moderate Democrat.

    That was an excellent analysis and a pleasure to read. Thank you for your intelligent post.

    Can we infer anything from that though? It could be meaningless. How likely is a grand jury to indict if the prosecutors haven’t made a recommendation?

    Too bad if the word is sacred to anyone–one way or another–but the simple fact is that the use of it gives aid and comfort to the enemy and is prohibited here for good reason. Steve normally strikes posts containing it once they’re brought to his attention, but some slip through moderation, and we have no ‘report’ function here to alert him.

  228. @Father O'Hara

    What Philistine would claim descent from the arrivistes in the Mayflower?

    Decent people’s ancestors traveled aboard the Susan Constant, Godspeed, and Discovery. Even they must, of course, concede primacy to the descendants of those aboard the San Pelayo and its complement.

    I’ll never understand all this obsession with the Mayflower in this context; really, I won’t. My best guess is it is just more bullshit propagated to glorify the victors in the War of Northern Aggression.

    Why are the Dems so excited about Ferguson? Did the issue come up in the debates?

    I must have missed something. I do not know why any candidate would want to revisit this issue.

    Duh. Whip up more anti-White hate. Reliable way to get out Dem votes.

    Come on.

    Ahhh, once again Horace Rumpole reminds us that violent teenaged criminals are as rigorously logical as rocket scientists.
    Who does that? You’re asking who does that? As an enthusiast of both cheap cigars and neighborhood-stabilizing yellow men, I might ask who does what Our Gentle Giant did on videotape shortly before attacking Wilson. Who does that indeed. You know perfectly well who does that even if Alden doesn’t spell it out for you.
