@BradC I came in to post that. Something smells vaguely fishy.
 
12:51 AM
Walter Mondale was still alive, TIL
 
1:03 AM
@TimStone I had exactly the same reaction
 
 
10 hours later…
11:21 AM
So apparently, this absolute Chad just was killed by rebels
(and yes, he's an absolute Chad. In fact, he was the president of Chad)
 
 
3 hours later…
2:26 PM
@Jolenealaska Yeah, I think its pretty reasonable to conclude that his strokes and subsequent death had something to do with the bear spray assault he received during the capital insurrection the prior day (and in fact the medical examiner said as much). But this means that prosecutors won't likely be able to charge the rioters with causing his death
 
 
5 hours later…
7:47 PM
Hearing reports the jury has reached a verdict
 
so we'll see if the riots are on or not
though I would suspect that this is a good sign, and means they convicted
 
Yeah fast means they definitely came to a unanimous verdict
it's been what, less than a day?
 
@Unionhawk well, it has to be unanimous whether its for conviction or acquittal, so I'm not sure that means much
 
I only followed this a bit, but from what I gather this was a very strong case by the prosecution. So the likely outcomes are convicted or hung jury
 
7:57 PM
well, there are a whole bunch of different charges, so could easily be convict on some, acquit on others
 
@Wipqozn Good news according to Twitter: apparently, this bill died on the FL senate floor
 
8:53 PM
@Nzall Thank Zeus
 
@TimStone I never really liked caramel
We should be hearing the verdict soon.
 
Guilty of second-degree unintentional murder
Guilty of third-degree murder
Guilty of manslaughter
 
Waiting for a single post that contains them all so I can star it
 
wow
 
9:11 PM
That's an actual news link
Not a random tweet
just so we're clear: this is only the verdict, right? The sentence itself will be shared later?
 
@Nzall Yes. It'll probably be decided weeks or months from now.
 
@Nzall Yes. Defendant opted (in advance) for sentence by the judge, not the jury
So that'll be a ways out. After the verdict, the judge announce a schedule of briefs and stuff (I didn't pay much attention to) over the next few weeks
 
Fox News right now claiming there was no division in how people felt about the case, and it was just "the media" trying to paint America as racist
Apparently ignoring that they're the media
and that clearly a ton of people thought he should be found not guilty
I bet 20 seconds googling would find me at least 5 of their anchors saying that
 
9:27 PM
@Sterno I doubt it would even take you 20

@Unionhawk amazing
 
10:26 PM
@TimStone jfc
 
@TimStone How is the Speaker of the House so bad at... speaking? Like s/thank you/we will remember/ is probably what she meant
 
@TimStone Y'all really need some better politicians.
I just don't understand how all of your politicians, save a few exceptions like Sanders and AOC, are just so, so bad.
We might have you beat with Ford and Kenney though. Not sure. It's a really close call, since the GOP exist.
 
@Wipqozn They both shove their feet in their mouths once in a while too.
 
10:58 PM
I just woke up and just saw it. GUILTY! \o/ Between that and the fact that I slept all day because I got my 1st Moderna vaccine yesterday makes this a pretty cool week so far.
 
11:12 PM
 
11:25 PM
My brother lives in Minneapolis so I just texted him with a one-word text: GUILTY!! He texted back "I hope the cops don't start shit tonight"
To that, I responded that I'm glad that we have our current president and not our last one for this.
 
@Nzall now lets hope in 8 weeks time they don't fuck it up by "recognizing time served and previous record as an outstanding police officer"
 
Imagine what they'll have to do as far as protective custody.
 
@Sterno it seems to be an issue with all right leaning media outlets where they don't seem to realize that they are the media aswell
you see it with the "journalists" too who claim journalists are woke leftists or whatever term they use now but not recognizing they are journalists aswell. or atleast not until they are caught participating in an insurrection
 
@TimStone yep, the police are making up for the lack of mass shootings
because before when it was mass shooting the response was "of for fuck sake America" which is now the response i have for these cop shootings
like last week they shot a 12 year old
