Folks, let me be blunt. I don't want to "get" Donald Trump.

I don't want to see him do a perp walk.

I don't want to see him in an orange jumpsuit.

I'm not out for vengeance in order to feel good.

I'm out for CRIMINAL JUSTICE.

I want Trump to be prosecuted for crimes he's alleged to have committed if there's evidence for a prosecution.

I want him to have the legal presumption of innocence until convicted.

I want him to have a vigorous legal defense.

And if convicted, I want the sentence to be appropriate to the criminal statutes.

Needless to say, the same should apply to anyone else implicated.

That's criminal justice.

That's what we should all want.

3. Vigorously agree with you

Besides, rich folks donít do perp walks- they make arrangements through their attorneys to quietly surrender for booking.

6. And this is how we will descend into fascism, I said fascism, deal with it

That's what happened with Roger Stone - what happened in the end?

That's what happened with Michael Flynn - what happened in the end?

Got all these "wants" and what happens? They're going to get more rights and privileges than schoolkids now and women accused of "suspicious miscarriages" in the near future from our government.

And then nothing.

But don't even call it tyranny.

7. I have some of the same feelings

Our criminal justice system is fucked up. These people use the current system to intimidate anyone who speaks against them and if that doesn't work, they will drag things out to make things so expensive that no one will take them to court. That's why Trump got away with stiffing contractors- even if the contractor could prove that they did what the contract demanded of them, the court costs would outweigh anything they could recover.

9. I don't want to get him either. I don't want to get his supporters either.

Trump attracts the worst of humanity because he is the worst of humanity. What happened on January 6th wasn't just something that happened overnight - it was years in the making. And the aftermath revealed who supports treason against the United States and who doesn't. You can't have a civilized discussion with people who want you dead.

10. Is this a poll?

Put me down for "Wants to get him."
The next thing i want to hear about him is that he has died in prison. He has destroyed far too much to be eligible for mercy. Is he eligible for Due process? Of course.
I realize that this prohibits me from sitting on his jury, but that's ok, I wouldn't want him in my field of vision for that long.

Because I truly doubt any of that will ever happen.

14. I want him thoroughly humiliated in the public eye as a public warning to others.

THAT'S why I want to see a perp walk. I want the DeSantises of the world to see what public humiliation looks like.

I need enough justice to assure that.

17. I won't apologize for hoping trump pays a high price for what he's done.

He and his idiot followers have done, and continue to do, a stunning amount of damage to this country. The penalty ought to be severe; I don't know that our criminal justice system is equal to the task. I guess I'll have to be satisfied with whatever punishment is dealt out.

18. Right now, watching the Committee hearings, I truly believe that the hearings

are salting the earth on a tfg campaign for 2024.

I feel such relief at that. It is SO enormous.
