Teh Squeaky Wheel
Cats are always pissed off about one thing or another.
Off to work at the bestest place ever--good day to all.
Mid-to-late morning (EST) greetings, GN!
Just noticed the switch to Daylight Savings occurs this weekend; BrendaK does not like.
Didn’t bother watching last night’s “debate” dog-and-pony show; I am, shall we say, utterly disenchanted by all of the major party candidates.
Happy Friday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Sven, and Fatwa!
Cooler weather is upon us, as is the chance for Fatwa to make some moar feelthy lucre!
That’s all I got, ‘cept a need for moar kawfee!
Maaaaaan…the Orange County (CA) DA / Sheriff’s Dept. / jailhouse scandal just keeps getting worse.
On Wednesday, an “investigator” from the DA’s office pounded the snot out of a defense attorney. In the courthouse. (I’m pretty certain the defense attorney didn’t fight back, as he was not arrested.)
The quote from the president of the deputies’ union is particularly obnoxious. Any deputies who are decent humans ought to be screaming for his dismissal…but I’m quite confident they will remain silent. Because when push comes to shove, almost all LEOs will abide by the “thin blue line”.
I kinda have a hard time feeling sorry for the defense attorney..he might have needed an ass whoopin’… Not that I condone that sort of behavior but…
But when the DA’s office has been illegally using jail-house informants and failing to share exculpatory evidence with the defense, it’s hard to fault the defense attorney for bringing it to light.
If there were any justice in the criminal justice system in America, there’d be a metric carp tonne of LEOs, lawyers -- especially prosecutors -- and judges doing hard time.
Or on death row, if they withheld exculpatory evidence re people who were convicted and murdered by the state.
Schrodinger’s cat must be in Chicago.
I don’t like or support Trump, but the talking heads on cable saying how he has to calm everyone down is a hoot. Trump didnt do this nor did his supporters. They ought to be asking Clinton and Sanders to make statements condemning the violence of their supporters.
And now that the anti-Trumpers have had a success, I expect things to just get nastier, but his supporters don’t appear to be in the mood to put up with it.
I think there will be a lot more political hooliganism, especially between Trumpalos and BernieBros.
It’ll be like soccer fandom. 🙂
