Some local branches are good, but the national ACLU

is not your friend.
These plans, if implemented, would require prosecutors to prove that a defendant was aware of the illegal nature of his or her actions and intended to cause them.
Sounds good, right?  Way it SHOULD be.  However,
Republican lawmakers who insist on making this issue a quid pro quo are likely doing so not out of concern for the lives, families and communities torn apart by our broken system, but rather to please white-collar and corporate polluter interests who stand to gain the most.
Wrong People are for this change, and people I don't like might benefit from it, so it's Bad!
Know what?  If the law is so damned complicated and convoluted that someone can't know that they're breaking it, they shouldn't be prosecuted for it.  Which would clear out a lot of the bullshit in courts: "Your honor, how is a average citizen supposed to know what is illegal, in this mess(waves copy of statutes involved, assuming he can pick them up)?"

Islamophobic is a word created by fascists, and used by cowards, to manipulate morons.

Speaking of morons, "I'm so sorry one of you raping me will be used to make all of you look bad!"
