Sorry to say, this guy won't get justice. Not in Oakland, where you can get away with destroying hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of property as long as you follow the party line.

If they didn't have absolute video proof this guy wouldn't even have been arrested.

Man, that story...

the proprietors who are still wondering why they were targeted are still awaiting some help from somebody

Where do they think Oakland is? France?

[–] culofiesta 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

I used to live around there and it blew my mind. Blocks of the city were destroyed and no one gave a fuck. The business owners didn't get shit and were told to fuck off.

Once they moved out and took their taxes with them the city whined and started guilting people for more money.

If professor faggot doesn’t get fucked by the judge, then bike-lock-attack is acceptable behaviour.

Judges everywhere beware, most of us own bike locks......

You might faggot, but I own a Glock...if you rely on your precious "bike lock" to keep you safe, then perhaps a pansy-ass like you should go back to reddit, where fag-boys belong.....

They just keep setting new dates forever and ever.

Yeah, to be honest if the court did this they often intend to go soft on the guy.

Hmm... I seem to recall something, a clause in a very obscure document. It goes something like "The defendant has the right to a farir and speedy trial."

I think the document was called the Constellation or something.

[–] MaxVieuxlieu 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

It wasn't set for trial though. It was set for a pretrial hearing, which is when they set the trial. This is nothing unusual.

It certainly seems like like there's a groundhog day loop of psychotic Clanton hearings.

I know I’m the bourbon expert here. But I volunteered for a public defender for one semester in college. My cousin and ex-girlfriend and brother are all corrections officers either in county jail’s or state prisons.

Charge is typically allow most stages of a litigation to be pushed back to allow time and also give them justification for handing down the sentence they are going to hand down.

If the person is guilty as hell, obviously the defense is going to want to kick the can down the road as long as they can. That gives them time to create a better defense. In general the prosecution wants to have a “Swift and speedy trial process”. If the person is guilty as hell, obviously the defense is going to want to kick the can down the road as long as they can.

In most felony cases come to think of it all of them, at least in the state of Michigan, fuck I don’t know I’m drunk, there is an arraignment, a pre-trial hearing, pre-trial one, pre-trial two, then the actual trial. After the trial the verdict is rendered guilty or not guilty. Then after the verdict is sentencing. So conversely you could have a pre-trial one where the two lawyers defense and prosecution come to an agreement and there’s no need for a pretrial to or even a trial that’s a plea deal.

Anyway most judges will allow up to six months for any of the stages. Not every stage, a total of six months. Which is completely reasonable especially when you’re facing prison time.

I have seen defense attorneys “speed things along“ just to simply delay the sentencing for six months so the guilty can get their affairs in order.

I have seen defense attorneys, good ones, push back everything to to three weeks just to stall and gather more time for a better defense.

I’m rambling but the point is kicking the can down the road is not really an unusual thing in the court process.

Edit. Voice to text. Five beers. Fuck off.

Beers?! Come on, Bourbon. . . You're better than that.

but yeah, I totally understand, I've got a criminal record myself (nothing too heinous), I'm just excited to see how it pans out.

[–] malloryquinn 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

Sorry I mean is the voice search so I can be just as bad about yeah I can do you know having higher criminal Chinese myself yeah exactly number one with the game is attrition which means forever and ever simple things season 2 weeks ago about a year and a half and tell the judge fuck it.

[–] malloryquinn 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

And this would you like one of the worst voice dictation things I've ever used to my life that wasn't even f****** close to what I said but you know what f*** you f*** who cares but it's a lot of f****** ride just whatever

[–] Trash_Panda 0 points 4 points (+4|-0) ago  (edited ago)

This is how the justice system works regardless of who is the accused. It's actually a giant pain in the ass for the defendant because it drags a conviction out for a year or more. That's why you have a right to a speedy trial...for the defendant. He had to waive this right.

[–] lorlipone [S] 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

Yeah, I'm not saying it's inherently wrong that they're pushing it back - I just know I'm excited to see the outcome, and someone else yesterday posted that the trial began today.

Just bringing the facts.

Unreal. This fuck clearly attempted to murder at least one person which is backed up by video proof.

[–] WitnesstheSalt 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

So is this punting the ball in hopes eventually no-one will be watching, allowing a slap on the wrist with no blowback?

[–] MaximilianAldorfer 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

I am not a lawyer, and my only experience in court has been from the wrong side but...

This has nearly been going on a year this stage.

Next, the Rolling Stone article said when his home was raided that a “Tupperware of psilocybin mushrooms” was kind... as he charged with possession?

I have also read that the D.A. has stated they are very close to a deal.

4 counts of assault with a deadly weapon, will he get away with probation?
