Furthering what Angel Eyes posted above:

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/federal-judge-demands-doj-civil-rights-probe-jan-6-detainees-dc-jail

I don't know that anything will come of it, but it at least gives me hope that someone is doing at least a little something over what are blatantly unconstitutional actions by the DC Dept of Corrections. Though they really need to be investigating the Federal prosecutors as well.

Some more info coming out on the Ashli Babbitt shooting. A couple of other cops testified that they saw no weapons in her hands and also that they heard no verbal commands directed at her before she was shot.

No no no,  the ahole that shot her was clearly saving lives.  He's said as much.  And he's black, so don't even think about criticizing his heroic defense of that office.

First I post about investigations into unconstitutional treatment of accused persons, now I have to post about a judge that is passing sentences more severe than prosecutors asked for:

Assuming we can ever get a Republican POTUS again, (s)he better issue a blanket pardon to all non-violent protesters convicted over Jan 6.

I知 fine letting buffalo horn dude, and the people breaking glass or stealing stuff retain their convictions.

Nikki Fried, who is running for governor in FL is revoking CCW licenses of 06JAN participants, who she calls "traitors". No mention is made on if these people were arrested, convicted, convicted of a misdemeanor or felony, or were just identified.

I don't know the details on FL CCW, but "guilty until proven innocent", using the kind of language she is using to describe them, might not work out for her. Either legally in her present position or in getting votes in the election.

I might agree with the second, but commuting the sentences would be appropriate at the least.  Nothing happened that day (done by protestors) that was worse than all the Antifa people who have been released with no charges all over the country.  I generally believe the lack of prosecution of some people should be a defense to prosecution of others.

I feel we discussed this earlier in the thread.  She is suspending CCW's of people that have been charged with a felony, something that is specifically required under FL law. If they are acquitted she has to restore the permits.

Either way this is not her discretion, or something she can take credit for.  Section 790 uses the word "shall" in describing both the suspension and theoretical reinstatement.

That's fine if that's the law, but given her position, she might not want to be throwing around "traitor" and other such labels for someone that might be proven innocent. It could come back to bite the FL taxpayers.

She is the current FL Agriculture Commissioner.  Her department oversees all FL CCWs.

That's fine if that's the law, but given her position, she might not want to be throwing around "traitor" and other such labels for someone that might be proven innocent. It could come back to bite the FL taxpayers.

True dat.  When she was running for Ag Commissioner she was a lot more middle of the road and not prone to hyperbolic outbursts.  She was clearly not a Trump fan, but not stupid crazy either.  The COVID craziness and her [apparent] burning hatred for DeSantis and the FL Dems pushing her as a candidate for higher office have caused some pretty dumb things to be uttered.

U.S. Marshals investigating whether those arrested for the Jan. 6 protests are being mistreated:

Mistreated?  Gee, ya think?
