    A retired Lt. Col. was the keynote speaker of an event in Ohio, and was discussing the role of blacks in the formation of Memorial Day, but since the organizers felt that was "inappropriate" to their narrative, they cut his mic. Republicans are so disrespectful, especially to our military. Sad!

    "HUDSON, Ohio — The Ohio American Legion is calling on the organizers of a Memorial Day ceremony to resign after they turned off a speaker’s microphone when the former U.S. Army officer began talking about how freed Black slaves had honored fallen soldiers soon after the Civil War.

    Retired Army Lt. Col. Barnard Kemter said he included the story in his speech because he wanted to share the history of how Memorial Day originated.

    But organizers of the ceremony in Hudson, Ohio, said that part of the speech was not relevant to the program’s theme of honoring the city’s veterans.

    Cindy Suchan, chair of the Memorial Day parade committee and president of the Hudson American Legion Auxiliary, said it was either she or Jim Garrison, adjutant of the American Legion Post 464, who turned down the audio, the Akron Beacon Journal reported."

    Being 8 years old...

    In Rutherford County, a juvenile court judge had been directing police on what she called “our process” for arresting children, and she appointed the jailer, who employed a “filter system” to determine which children to hold.

    The judge was proud of what she had helped build, despite some alarming numbers buried in state reports.

    Among cases referred to juvenile court, the statewide average for how often children were locked up was 5%.

    In Rutherford County, it was 48%.

    It's a damn good thing this guy was born white!

    "A man who pleaded guilty to the rape and sexual assault of four teenage girls will avoid prison time after a New York state judge said time behind bars would be inappropriate.

    Christopher Belter, now 20, entered a plea deal in 2019 in which he agreed to plead guilty to attempted first-degree sexual abuse, third-degree rape and two counts of second-degree sexual abuse, according to court documents.
    The charges stem from four separate incidents in 2017 and 2018 in Lewiston, New York, the documents state. He and the victims were all under 18 at the time.

    Belter was placed on interim probation for two years with limits on his internet use and access to pornography, the documents state.

    But he violated the terms of his probation, according to court documents. Judge Matthew J. Murphy denied him Youthful Offender status and ruled he'd be sentenced as an adult, the documents state.
    Last Tuesday, Judge Murphy issued a sentence of eight years of probation and ruled Belter must register as a sex offender -- but said prison time would be inappropriate.

    "I agonized. I'm not ashamed that to say that I actually prayed over what is the appropriate sentence in this case because there was great pain. There was great harm. There were multiple crimes committed in the case," Judge Murphy said, according to CNN affiliate WKBW. "It seems to me that a sentence that involves incarceration or partial incarceration isn't appropriate, so I am going to sentence you to probation."

    See now the judge and the piece of shit rapist are the types of people that this world would be better off without. As Dylan sang, "I hope that you die, and your death will come soon'.

    "I lingered round them, under that benign sky: watched the moths fluttering among the heath and harebells, listened to the soft wind breathing through the grass, and wondered how any one could ever imagine unquiet slumbers for the sleepers in that quiet earth."

    Yes. I don't understand, unless the quote was not taken in context, how he says there was great pain, great harm and multiple crimes committed, and then says incarceration is not appropriate.

    And BTW, it should be noted this judge is a Democrat, so not all judicial pieces of shit are Republicans.

    Ahmad Arbery's killers all found guilty, to varying degrees. So apparently, at least, shooting folks for #joggingwhileblack is still frowned upon in this country.
