This trial should have definitely been moved, probably out of state. Send it to fucking Alaska.

I hate cops, and these guys are guilty of something. But this is not the way to go about convicting them.
Oh shit son, shots fired.

 

When did you start standing up for justice?  Especially for fascist pigs?

To be clear though, obviously there should be a change of venue, and this is no way to win a trial.  It will almost certainly give the cops ground to appeal.

Mistrial. Hung jury, I guess. Apparently no verdicts.

Shock, surprise.

Riots tonight? or is everyone tuckered out.

The would-be rioters will surely be in the theaters enjoying Star Wars Into Darkness.

What's the weather like there right now? I think if it's cold we'll see a lower chance of riots.

That's from a Balitmore Sun reporter from just after the mistrial was declared.

Any of you international maritime lawyers care to comment on "privately public" land?

Weren't we discussing the other day the overlap between the "cop" circle and the "liar" circle on the Great Venn Diagram Of Everything?

While I can certainly imagine circumstances where a court might issue temporary restrictions governing public property that prevent access or use that might normally be acceptable, I've never heard of "privately public" land. On the other hand, cops, lawyers, and judges doesn't always express themselves in the best possible terms.

The Virginia police officer who wanted to photograph a 17-year-old boy's erect penis in connection to a juvenile sexting case committed suicide Tuesday as authorities went to arrest him on pedophilia-related charges. Those charges were not connected to last year's sexting case that received global media coverage.

Authorities planned to chemically induce an erection in a 17-year-old boy.
Detective David Edward Abbott, a member of the Northern Virginia-Washington DC Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, last year had obtained a warrant to inject a young boy with a drug that would cause an erection. Abbott wanted to photograph that erection and compare it with photos found on a 15-year-old girl's phone. Amid a public outcry, the Manassas City police eventually decided against doing that. The 17-year-old boy got a year of probation for sexting his teen girlfriend.


Wow, I can't believe I never predicted the cop was a pedophile.

This is a tragic and sad day for the Abbott family, the juvenile victims and their families, the Manassas City Police Department, and our community. In spite of these recent developments regarding the serious allegations against him, we are grateful for the contributions Det. Abbott made during his time with Manassas City Police, to include the prosecution and conviction of hundreds of criminals. His family and peers request privacy during this time as we grieve and struggle to accept the realities of such a loss.

If you think injecting a kid with some erectile enhancement drug is a good idea we all might want to reevaluate your position in society.

Did he mention veins in any good bye letter?
