People got pissed, and this is the outcome.
The attorneys of Bill Newell, embattled former ATF Special Agent in Charge of the Phoenix Field Division, and David Voth, Supervisor of Phoenix Group VII (the group that carried out Operation Fast and Furious), are accusing Senator Charles Grassley and Chairman of the House Oversight Committee Darrell Issa of making “many inaccurate and harmful statements” and “factual distortions against” their clients.
And they do this by lying their faces off.
Shouldn't people like attorney and former Department of Justice Prosecutor Paul E. Pelletier have some kind of a problem about lying in print like this?
Well, how about the Houston PD stops being a collective dick? That would take care of the problem.
So the NYEffingTimes doesn't like castle-doctrine laws. And some prosecutors don't like them because it makes them harder to charge people in honest self-defense cases(my wording). Well, tough shit; one of the reasons for the push for these laws was prosecutors charging people just because they figured it was an easy way to get another 'I took a criminal off the street' conviction in their record for when they ran for office later on.
Other thoughts here.
A: Idiot cops shooting dogs.
B: Idiot journalist makes excuses.
Somebody's gonna get a talking to...(thanks, Feral)
A bit of history on Gen. Grant and Jews.
One thing I'd argue:
”the [P]rotestant, the Catholic, and the Jew appointed days for universal prayer in my behalf,” he boasted to his eldest son on his deathbed)
When I read something like this, I'm wondering if there was any indication of 'boasting' in the actual record, or is that the writers' interpretation?
