    Maybe the police will be brought into line by public attention

    Maybe the Sphinx will turn a handspring. Public attention seems to produce the exact opposite effect. The cops hunker down with heavy weaponry behind their blue wall, deny everything, and threaten to campaign against any politician that doesn’t support them. Boxturtle (Currently, the prosecutor [...]

    He should lose his job and never work again as a cop

    You’re too easy. Were I prosecutor, I’m not sure I’d even agree to a manslaughter plea. I’d want 2nd degree murder minimum, though I’d agree to a parole hearing after 20 years. Boxturtle (But I’d write a nasty letter to the parole board recommending [...]

    The neighbors have successfully tricked you into feeding their cat for them. :-)

    My reaction to that statement from a Faux talking head was “Good. He’s a menace to the people he’s supposed to serve”. I wonder how the regular Ferguson police will be able to do their jobs now? They are hated, they are targets, and the only support they’re getting is from themselves and the politicians. [...]

    I would have loved to cross examine Wilson.

    The entire plan around doing the GJ this way was to prevent that from happening. Though in a real trial, I don’t think the defense would put Wilson on the stand. 8 tweets pretty much destroyed his credibility, imagine what a actual prosecutor could have done. Boxturtle (Fox [...]

    I wonder if the GJ vote was split along racial lines or if the defense atty just blew enough smoke.

    this case was actually tried before this grand jury.

    Objection! A trial requires a prosecutor.

    The penalty for stealing cigarette appears to be death.

    Boxturtle (I thought the penalty for SMOKING cigarettes was death. Silly me!)

    Good Morning and Happy Thanksgiving all! This is as obvious a thrown case as I’ve ever seen. Or heard of. The prosecutor was, in effect, another defense atty. Complete abdication of the responsibilities of the job. Who is worse, the criminal or the lawyer who enables him to get away with it? Here’s an example [...]

    So was Star Wars. :-)

    Yeah, but very segregated. My friend lives in a white area and the only blacks he sees are either just passing through or city workers.

    Desegregation busing chased out anybody who could leave decades ago. City has never really recovered.

    He needs to be careful doing that. I collect coins and there are several major dealers who simply don’t like each other. A lot. I’ve seen people pay 20x what an item is worth just to keep an enemy from having it. There was once an auction where two enemies where both there. One was [...]

    I have a friend in St. Louis. He just msg’d me that the police have blocked off all the roads from Ferguson to the main part of St. L, in some cases using construction equipment as road blocks.

    Boxturtle (He also said “looks like Watts”)

    That’s a really good question. If he’s willing to orchestrate a no bill in this case, he’ll do anything the cops say.

    Boxturtle (I hope he can never show his face anywhere without heavy security ever again)

    The first floor is “going out of business” surplus. Whatever was left after a going out of business sale got a lowball bid from the owners and most accepted. A little money is better than none. Lot’s of restaurant and kitchen supplies, office furnishings, display cases and the like. last time I was there, they [...]

    We knew it was coming. I knew as soon as the officer testified, though MiB was pretty sure of it before that.

    If it’s electronics, I bet I can find two of whatever you get, in better shape, and probably for less.

    Probably. The Old Man Behind the Counter can drive a hard bargain when he’s not in a generous mood.

    There is a geocache hidden one an easement next to my house. It currently contains a beanie baby and a package of twinkies. Gets visited about 3-4 times a year. I check it on occasion, just to see what’s there. For those who don’t know, when you find a geocache, you’re supposed to take whatever [...]

    We should steal Boxing Day from Canada. It’s much better than Many Happy Returns Day, too.

    Question from The Old Man Behind The Counter: Can I help you find something?

    Me: If I knew what I was looking for, I wouldn’t be here!

    Good Morning All! That really is an excellent job for that set. I’ve seen professional work (meaning they got paid for it) not nearly as good. Scavanging electronics in Dayton doesn’t mean dumpsters, it means Mendelson’s Surplus. Their second floor, the size of several football fields, is a giant electronics junkshop. Tubes (sometimes even the [...]
