A violent man. This woman had previously “reiterated that she is scared of the suspect because he had made threats to harm her family and her children,” according to the affidavit”
Medicynical Note: Who knows why the existential anger. She was going to have to bear responsibility for the pregnancy. How many children did she previously have? We’re there complications from previous pregnancies? Could she manage the complications of parenthood and a continuing relationship with an obviously deranged angry man? Was this the consequences of rape? Texas obviously doesn’t care. And it’s really none of our business but thanks to the Supreme Court and the Texas legislature………… it’s murder.
And the conservative members of the Supreme Court sit above it all accepting payments from supporters and at times ignoring conflicts of interest with their “donor’s” interests. (dear personal friends, of course). They demand protection at their homes because of demonstrators who might possibly be legally carrying guns that they have made available to everyone everywhere. America’s murderous “freedom.”
An army sergeant, working as an Uber driver, shot a man who carrying a rifle. The driver claimed he felt threatened and said the guy lifted his rifle. A claim denied by other witnesses.
During the trial “Prosecutors presented some of Perry’s messages and social media comments in the weeks before. Among them: “I might have to kill a few people on my way to work, they are rioting outside my apartment complex” and “I might go to Dallas to shoot looters.””
He was convicted by a unanimous vedict. But Governor Abbot thinks he knows better.
Medicynical Note: In America a once “conservative” political faction has legalized murder…… Texas again.
Medicynical note: America leads the world in murders.
We used to lead the world in innovation, education, and technology. We did have an original-sin problem with racism, but we seemed to be addressing it for a while.
Now we have racists on TV and maybe Twitter. Now we have more guns/capita than anywhere in the world. And now we have more gun deaths, mass shootings, school shootings, gun murders, accidental shootings, gun suicides, shootings of innocents by police and police getting shot etc, etc, etc. America today.
And the Republican Party and Supreme Court and some Democrats, the people who made it all possible. Sit mute. Some hiding from people who might be near their homes legally carrying the weapons that they have made it so so easy to own.
Medicynical Note: A lovely Sunday in America. We lead the world in mass shootings, school shootings, accidental gun deaths, gun suicides, gun murders, police shootings, police getting shot, house party shootings, neighbor shootings and shootings of classmates and friends.The living hell of America in the 21st Century.
And the folks who made it all possible, the Alito led conservative Republican appointees on the Supreme Court sit at home afraid that innocent demonstrators near their homes might possibly be legally carrying a gun. Kind of pathetic.
And as in “Groundhog Day” it will happen again and again and again until we get it right.
According to the Supreme Court murder and mayhem were the founders desire. This happens again and again and again only in the United States of America. Every other industrialized country seems to understand that it’s not the doors or mental health or high criminality or not enough hopes and prayers. It’s the guns and everyone knows it
Medicynical Note: Families devastated, lives lost and the Republican Party is concerned only with voiding any limit to gun ownership. Every day again and again and again until we get it right.
The murder abetting Republican dominated Conservative Supreme Court sits above it all with some members in hiding because someone near their homes might be legally carrying a weapon or because of their own personal, open for all to see, corruption (yes Justice Thomas, you). They blame it all on the slave owning founders. Amazing what has become of the once civil society of America.
It will happen again and again and again. I’m beginning to feel like the guy in Groundhog Day. Every day, no matter how they find to excuse it—mental health system, police delays, no metal detectors, open doors, thoughts and prayers — it happens again.
Medicynical Note: Another shooting. A “legally” purchased AR-15 obtained four days earlier by a soon to be fired bank employee. It took one minute to kill 5 people. Also shot in the event were two police. One, a new police recruit, with a life threatening injury.
Kentucky is a state with few limits on gun purchases and open carry. It’s as if they want to facilitate the slaughter. The police, always respond, most times heroically but almost always too late. A front line group the police for some inexplicable reason continue to support guns everywhere for everyone. An insane mind set, but then it’s 21st century America where daily public killings are deemed necessary for “freedom.”
Our conservative Supreme Court members made it all possible following the vague notion of originalism. They seem too busy to concern themselves with the collateral damage and are off on luxury trips around the world with “personal” friends or hiding at home fearful of………. guns.
Medicynical Note: Just another couple of days of murder and mayhem in the once civil, once United …… States of America. We are unique and are number 1 in the industrialized world in gun deaths, mass shootings, accidental shootings, school shootings, gun homicides, suicide gun deaths, police shootings, police getting shot, and in the number of guns/capita. We are the world leader.
A 6 year old shot a teacher. Now months after the event the criminal “justice” system can’t decide who should be held responsible. They did decide to not charge the 6 year old.
“Earlier this month, top Newport News prosecutor Howard Gwynn said his office will not criminally charge the boy because he wouldn’t understand the legal system and what a charge means. Gwynn has yet to decide if any adults will be charged.”
Medicynical note: It’s truly absurd that the owner of the gun has not been charged. Newport News clearly has more problems than the 6 year old shooter. I’m not sure whether the delay in attributing responsibility and prosecution is worse than the actual shooting. It’s a grotesque.
Legal inertia has is also evident in the handling of the attempts to suppress voters, illegally influence the vote count and ultimately the violent attempt to reverse the 2020 presidential election by our former President and many members of his political party some serving in the House of Representatives and Senate. Two years out and none of these key planners and instigators have been indicted or in any significant way punished. This too is grotesque.
