to be black in the south !! The others deputies pled guilty to J-walking & were given $10 fines !! The deputies appealed the fine to the Florida Supreme Court & after due deliberation the high court found the fines to be excessive & forced the family of the violent black man to pay the fines ? plus the high Court ruled the families had to pay for the laundry bill $400 as the deputies soiled their uniforms while apprehending the violent black man & the high Court further found that one of the deputies had accrued a headache due to all the excessive physical activity to which the out of shape deputies were unaccustomed & the deputy was taken, by ambulance to a local hospital to which two of the other deputies were assigned as his bodyguards in case they encountered any more violent black people during transport to the hospital !! The high court further found that the family of the violent black man that was beaten unconscious must pay the $10,000 emergency room bill which included coffee & donuts for the officers to help settle them down to avoid any further mental anguish !! The black family was given ten days to pay the accrued damages or face six months in County jail !! (source AHW news)
I haft to agree with you Shireen !! I went to A Bernie Rally Sat. nite in Springfield Missour-a & I was astonished by the number of young(17 to 25) yr olds !! The building held about 11,ooo & they were lined up around the building ( I guess about 3 to 4 thousand ) that couldn't get in !! They had to stand in line for about 8 to 10 hrs !! I left about 8:30 & I was amazed they didn't know they couldn't get in , but they persevered !!
The next morn a friend called me & told me that Bernie Had Security set up a podium in front of the building & Bernie came out & spoke with them for about 40 min. What an amazing man !!!
If Bernie isn't elected POTUS, A great injustice will be done. I'm 71 & I'm still fired up from watching & listening to those future Democrats. Young people are sick of the rite-wing BS & they are going to correct that
If you voted? please post it ?
I voted here in so. west Missouri on a paper ballot !!
Out of 15 races, there was only "one" democrat running !! no use in wasting ur time or money in this part of the wingnut world !!
There were 4 amendments too change the mo. constitution? more rw batshit!!
Happy Election day!!
Lately iv' been reading a lot about voter suppression & people being taken off the voter rolls in several states?? Is there any one besides the fox watching the
hen house? Do we have an attorney General? Who in hell is enforcing the constitution??Are we the only country in the world too allow this crap??
Does anyone have any info. on the Volkswagen union vote??
I'm totally pissed that those Reps. in Tenn. are fighting so hard too keep the VW plant from going Union!!
The VW people have no problem with the union.
Here in So. West Missouri we have put out a missing person for an rmoney/ryan sign? yard sign or bumper snicker.
This is the most radical rt. wingnut part of the country. I have not seen one sign of them?. Now, I'm not complainin mindya.
Also, there are no todd akin signs. (Probably used them for firewood). He does have about one add a week on tv apologizing for what he thinks. Claire is still in a bit off a tight race? With out all that outside money coming in, she has a better chance. Branson does have a tea party office set up. That's been there for two years & the paint seems too be pealing off of it.
The tornado just missed it earlier this year,
My Granddaughter came too visit us in calif. one year & I agreed to get her a turtle from the pet store, well we came home with a pound puppy instead. She named him Copper. She went home in 2 weeks & we were stuck with this puppy. 14 years later I had too put him down with failing kidneys. OMG, for 3 years now I have been grieving over that dog. He was part of the family. I swore I would never get another dog.
Well, we now have 2 Pugs that we rescued from bad situations. Their names are Maggie & Debbie, they make life a lot more interesting. They seem too enjoy making us laugh by doing stupid things. They feed off our laughter. I know one day what is coming, but I wouldn't trade those years for anything. There's never a dull or lonely moment with my girls around.
When I come back in my next life, I'm going too open a pet store! That's where all the money is. (joke)
