Sorry about the double post.

jimmyk

Only the diseased mind of Cyrus Vance Jr could think this is a good use of the courts' scarce resources when murder and mayhem are skyrocketing.

As our host suggests, now we have to fear that if we report suspicious behavior that turns out to be innocent, we will be charged with a crime. Just like cops who use force when they judge it necessary will be charged with a crime by prosecutors with 20-20 hindsight. The end result, predictably, will be more murder and mayhem.

Yes, jimmyk. Good one, TM.

Chinese Media: World Thinks America Is a ‘Helpless, Underdeveloped Country’

The Global Times regularly proclaims the alleged supremacy of Chinese totalitarian rule over American-style free societies and declares America as an entity a failure. On Monday, it used the allegedly larger number of Chinese coronavirus cases in America to make the claim, although extensive evidence suggests that China has manipulated its testing and numbers to make its internal health crisis look less severe than it is in reality.

“The U.S. has been repeatedly shocking the world with its [Chinese coronavirus] data – It registered over 2.88 million infections and nearly 130,000 deaths as of press time,” the Global Times noted. “Many people are wondering what is wrong with the US. The self-proclaimed defender of human rights has attached no importance to human life.”

The column used the concept of “low human rights advantage,” which it did not define or explain in any way, to make the case that America is a failed state.

“The ragged veneer of human rights no longer covers the violations of human rights in the U.S. But many immoral American politicians continue to mislead the world by calling white black,” the column asserted, using nearly identical language to Chinese Foreign Ministry lackey screeds offered at daily press conferences. “Other countries have to think about the consequences they face from a Western country that uses low human rights as an advantage.”

“People from other countries now see the U.S. as a helpless underdeveloped country,” the Global Times concluded, again without offering any evidence – not even remarks from allied rogue states like North Korea and Iran.

The Infamous Ignatz

This is probably a naive question but how do we square arrest and pretrial incarceration with the presumption of innocence?
And if the state fails to gain a conviction why is the person arrested not awarded compensation for being incarcerated?
The bar to a successful malicious prosecution suit is extremely high, but even in the case of simple mistake the person's life was still severely disrupted and his freedom taken from him.

Sometimes it is OK to blame a bad outcome on one individual, but frankly with SCOTUS and the rest of government, the failure is Institutional.

I hate Roberts to be sure. But I hate the solid brainless prog four even more.

‘Racist Drivel’: Conservative MP Cancels His BBC Licence over Racism Against White Women

In a promotional clip for BBC Sound’s No Country for Young Women podcast, the presenter, British Pakistani comedian Sadia Azmat, asked her two guests — both white women — ‘Chicken Shop Date’ Youtuber Amelia Dimoldenberg and feminist historian Dr Charlotte Riley from Southampton University: “How can white women not be Karens?”

Dimoldenberg replied: “Don’t be so loud. Stop shouting and stop attacking black voices. Instead, you should be uplifting them,”

Dr Riley added: “Get out of the way, basically.”

We all want the same thing: to reduce the risk of infection while maximizing the value to our communities and society

I don't believe that for one second. I do not think that the NYT/WaPo/CNN/MSNBC/etc etc etc crowd wants to reduce the risk of infection one tiny little bit. I also don't believe jerks like Cuomo or Whitmer or Newsome or all the mayors who've come to enjoy being tinpot dictators want to reduce the risk of infection, and they clearly don't want to maximize value to their communities or society at large.

Granted.

But that does get into double standard territory. Most of us are on the hook for mistakes we make on our jobs that harm somebody (and if we're not, our employers are and they don't get to dip into taxpayer funds to pay for the damages; and we will probably not be employed there for long if we cost our employer $100K in damages due to a mistake on our part).

Most of us are on the hook for mistakes we make on our jobs that harm somebody

But unless it's criminal, we usually aren't on the hook financially for something we mess up at work. So the standard would have to be Duke Lacrosse-level malfeasance. Otherwise, as Iggy says, prosecutors will be reluctant to charge even clearly guilty people who might get off through jury nullification or a technicality. And then we'd have the opposite problem of guilty people who get the double gift of getting off, plus getting "damages," like the Central Park 5 scum. Or imagine Bill Ayers getting compensated after getting off on a technicality.
