I'm not surprised you convicted the Black cops before trial.  Yet, you give white cops the benefit of doubt.

I'm not surprsied at your juvenile and factually inaccurate response. I believe j1908 asked for my opinion/prediction on the case. I gave her my opinion/prediction based on what I know of the case. 

Please show the board where I gave Derek Chauvin the benefit of the doubt. 

This is not the first time you have made this overbroad and false accusation against me.

I had to correct you here:

Cooke was nominated to the federal bench by former President George W. Bush in November 2003 and confirmed 96-0 by the United States Senate on May 18, 2004.

Judge Marcia G. Cooke, who spent 18 years as a federal judge in Miami and was the first Black female to serve in that position in the state of Florida, died Friday at the age of 68.

The Miami Herald reported Cooke died in her hometown of Detroit, Michigan with her family. She had returned to the city in recent weeks after struggling for months with inoperable cancer. She was admitted to Mount Sinai Hospital in Miami Beach last summer and underwent surgery after suffering a pulmonary embolism on a trip.

A graduate of Georgetown University and Wayne State University's College of Law, Cooke spent 15 years as an attorney and later a United States magistrate judge in Michigan before moving to Miami in 1992. She served as director of professional development in the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Southern District of Florida.

She would serve in several roles, including Executive Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Southern District, chief inspector general for the Executive Office of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and later assistant attorney for Miami-Dade County.

Alright. My gut feeling is that if they all go to trial, they are all going to be convicted of second degree murder.

Anyone not convicted of second degree murder will be convicted of voluntary manslaughter.

It would not surprise me if one of the officers offers to plead guilty to voluntary manslaughter or reckless homicide in exchange for their testimony against the other officers.

In many of these video cases, the defense lawyers try to present a frame by frame defense showing that the victim did not comply with the officers' commands.  I don't think that will work in this case.

I suspect that all the defendants will seek a plea deal to a lesser included offense. However, the prosecution is unlikely to agree without approval from the family of Tyre Nichols.

What do you make of the case against the BB ( they’re no longer officers) so the name is appropriate.

Good morning. Do you mean the Black Bastards  :( in Memphis?

Justice Brett Kavanaugh heaped praise on fellow Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson, the Supreme Court's newest member who first took the bench last fall.

"She is fully prepared — thoroughly prepared," Kavanaugh said of his colleague during a Notre Dame Law School event on Monday, calling preparation "the number one thing" that "makes a good judge."

"She's off to a great start," Kavanaugh continued, adding that Jackson "hit the ground running" and fits in well with the group.

Jackson, who's seated next to Kavanaugh on the bench, has received widespread attention in the legal world less than four months into her tenure at the Supreme Court. Observers have remarked how quickly and comfortably Jackson has been settling into her new role, speaking up often during oral arguments and engaging in lengthy back-and-forths with counsel. Progressives have also commended Jackson for what they see as her challenging conservative legal thinking on a 6-3 conservative-majority court.

DOJ disrupts major ransomware group that extorted more than $100M including from schools and hospitals

The FBI infiltrated and disrupted a major cybercriminal group that extorted schools, hospitals and critical infrastructure around the world, federal officials said Thursday.

The group, Hive, is one of the most prolific hacker gangs in the world, having received about $100 million in extortion payments, according to a November warning from the FBI, Health and Human Services and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency. As of Thursday morning, its website on the dark web showed a message saying it had been seized by an international law enforcement coalition, including the FBI and Justice Department.

The program has expanded from buses to include the option of chartered air travel via a 737 aircraft, according to a state contract signed Jan. 14.

In a wide-ranging news conference at the state Capitol, the new Democratic governor said the controversial practice, started by her Republican predecessor, needs review to ensure it is effective. But she indicated it had some merit.

"It’s something that provides support to those local communities," Hobbs told reporters, referring to border communities that are strained by the influx of migrants. "If we’re spending money to bus people, why not just get them to their final destination?”

***

In a follow-up statement, press secretary Josselyn Berry said the new administration is taking a different tack from what former Gov. Doug Ducey did.

"We’re sending migrants to cities they actually need to go to and be connected with their sponsors, and we are doing it in a more cost effective way by looking at all travel options, not just buses," Berry said.

Tyre Nichols was 'defenseless' during his 'savage' beating by police

Tyre Nichols was "defenseless" during the "savage" beating by Memphis police officers that preceded his death earlier this month, attorneys for his family said at a Monday press conference.

Earlier in the day, law enforcement officials privately met with Nichols' family members and their attorneys to show them video footage of the police stop, which has not yet been released to the public.

Attorney Antonio Romanucci described a violent scene. "He was a human piñata for those police officers," Romanucci said. "It was an unadulterated, unabashed nonstop beating of this young boy for three minutes."

***

Crump, one of the family's attorneys, said Nichols was tased, pepper sprayed and restrained during the incident, part of which occurred about 80 yards from where Nichols lived with his mother and stepfather. Crump said Nichols could be heard calling out for his mother just before the video ended.

Famed civil rights attorney Ben Crump is planning to file a lawsuit against Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis over the rejection of an Advanced Placement African American Studies pilot program.

Crump announced the planned lawsuit during a Wednesday news conference at the Florida Capitol, where he was joined by leaders from the American Federation of Teachers, politicians including South Florida State Sen. Shevrin Jones, and three AP honors students who will serve as the lead plaintiffs.

"We are here to give notice to Governor DeSantis that if he does not negotiate with the College Board to allow AP African-American studies to be taught in the classrooms across the state of Florida, that these three young people will be the lead plaintiffs in a historic lawsuit," Crump said.

The College Board will release a revised course framework on the first day of Black History Month
The College Board announced on Tuesday that it would be revising the course. The organization said it will release "the official framework" for the course on Feb. 1, which it noted is the first day of Black History Month.

"We are glad the College Board has recognized that the originally submitted course curriculum is problematic, and we are encouraged to see the College Board express a willingness to amend," said Alex Lanfranconi, the Florida Department of Education's communications director.

What a friggin joke. Just and make this s**t stick. Oh idiot, please list the number of Jan. 6th persons who were convicted of insurrection. YOU GD FOOL.

It appears the seditious conspiracy is a more serious crime than insurrection

18 U.S.C. § 2383 Rebellion or insurrection

Whoever incites, sets on foot, assists, or engages in any rebellion or insurrection against the authority of the United States or the laws thereof, or gives aid or comfort thereto, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.

18 U.S.C. § 2384 Seditious conspiracy

If two or more persons in any State or Territory, or in any place subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, conspire to overthrow, put down, or to destroy by force the Government of the United States, or to levy war against them, or to oppose by force the authority thereof, or by force to prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States, or by force to seize, take, or possess any property of the United States contrary to the authority thereof, they shall each be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both.

Minnesota Democrat reintroducing bill banning members of Congress from owning, trading stocks

Rep. Angie Craig (D-Minn.) on Wednesday announced she’s reintroducing legislation to keep members of Congress from owning or trading stocks.

“Our constituents sent us to Congress to lower health care costs, fix our roads and bridges and help create good-paying jobs, not play the stock market and line our own pockets. Unfortunately, some of my colleagues have gotten sidetracked by special interests and conflicts of interest,” Craig said in a release about the Halt Unchecked Member Benefits with Lobbying Elimination (Humble) Act.

Haven't there been previous attempts to enact similar legislation?  :shrug:

As the drip, drip, drip of President Joe Biden’s classified documents scandal leaks out, legal experts have been quick to point out that Biden’s situation is less serious, legally speaking, than former President Donald Trump’s. It’s true that under the facts as we know them right now, Biden’s possession of classified documents, while careless, doesn’t rise to the threshold required to violate the law.

But while Biden’s actions may not be a crime, they still present significant national security concerns. More importantly, the new discoveries have given House GOP more fodder for yet another congressional oversight investigation, which will shine a bigger spotlight on Biden’s actions than on Trump’s.  Biden may not have a legal problem, but he does have a perception problem.

It’s worth reiterating at the outset the legal distinctions between Biden’s and Trump’s possession of classified documents. The difference is one of intent. Even if we assume that both presidents ended up with classified documents at their homes inadvertently, Biden immediately notified and cooperated with the Justice Department after discovering them while Trump stalled, evaded and made misrepresentations in his dealings with law enforcement. Biden even consented to a search of his home by the FBI. By contrast, the FBI was arguably left with no choice but to obtain a search warrant for Mar-a-Lago after learning that classified documents remained on the premises despite Trumps lawyers warranting to the FBI that they had been returned.

Outstanding. However, Y, the idiots here don't care about facts.

Are you sure you understood the import of the article?  :shrug:

Even though legally speaking Biden may not be on the hook for a crime, the hearings offer the potential for the GOP to demonstrate — in public and over a long period of time — that Biden was sloppy in his handling of classified information.

***

Here is the kicker: Although the Justice Department is looking into even more serious national security issues with Trump, that investigation is taking place behind the scenes. This means that while Biden’s shortfalls with respect to his handling of classified information will continue to be in the public eye, the much more serious nature of Trump’s actions will remain in obscurity unless and until the special counsel decides to charge him with a crime. Ironically, Trump is “protected” by the secrecy of a criminal investigation in a way Biden is not.

While the committee’s focus on Biden, but not Trump, certainly smacks of partisanship, it isn’t unreasonable on its face for the committee to investigate the circumstances surrounding the classified documents in Biden’s possession. And this is the problem for Biden.
