James Fields Jr found guilty of first-degree murder

12 December 2018 - 11:31 AM

In addition to murdering Heather Heyer, Fields is also being charged with multiple counts of malicious wounding. As a result, the jury recommends a life sentence plus an additional 419 years. He also faces additional charges related to hate crimes, and if he is found guilty of those, they would carry the death penalty.

 

I'm very happy to see this. Fields needed to be held accountable for his actions, and I look forward to the ruling in his next trial.

 

As this deals with a subject that came up in the previous thread on political violence, so I ask that people refrain from causing this thread to turn out like the last one.

Verizon throttles firefighters' data plan during wildfire.

22 August 2018 - 10:59 AM

Firefighters attempted to use a supposedly unlimited data plan to coordinate the response team while combatting a wildfire, only for Verizon to forcefully slow down their data speed. The fire department sent an email, Verizon focused only on offering the department a chance to upgrade their data plan.

 

Pretty scummy of Verizon to take advantage of the net neutrality repeal to throttle firefighters.


"Stephen Miller is an immigration hypocrite"

Stephen Miller's uncle, David S. Glosser, discusses the hypocrisy of how Miller and Trump are each directly descended from immigrants, yet advocate for policies that, if they were in place a century ago, would have prevented those same ancestors from immigrating. Incidentally, Trump's grandfather in question, Frederick Trump, was deported for failing to fulfill his military service. I guess draft-dodging runs in the family.

"Immigration reform is a complex issue that will require compassion and wisdom to bring the nation to a just solution, but the politicians who have based their political and professional identity on ethnic demonization and exclusion cannot be trusted to do so."

 

This line in particular stands out to me. Too often does it seem that styling oneself as knowledgeable on the "proper" approach to immigration comes at the cost of any and all compassion, as though it were mutually exclusive from wisdom. Stephen Miller lacks both, supporting policies based neither in wisdom nor compassion, but solely in fearmongering.


Infinity War ending

Terrible video quality, but this song really is far too appropriate for the ending.
