Crazy white men with guns in Oregon (updated)

UPDATE–a more relevant photo meme just out after the local sheriff had a hand-shake with Ammon Bundy.  Assuming you’re paying attention, you’ve heard that self-styled ‘militia’ have swept down on Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Oregon and taken it over, vowing to not move ‘for years’.

Cecily McMillan: The Jury objects

Apparently, nine of the jurors who decided the case of Cecily McMillan are suffering from buyer’s remorse. They’ve sent the attached letter to Judge Zweibel asking for leniency in sentencing McMillan, an Occupy Wall Street activist, who was convicted of assaulting a police officer. According to their letter, they were prevented from learning that a […]

Cecily McMillan is convicted of assault

I had a bad feeling about this from the first day in court (which I showed up for). Cecily McMillan was found guilty of felony assault of a police officer yesterday. I had done a post about this a few weeks ago, so if you need context go here. The case was marked by suppression […]
