  • There was no way it was ever going to trial. Even if the DA were somehow a (R) they wouldn't be stupid enough to actually try to prosecute this case; a jury in Fulton county would me more likely to ask the judge if they can convict and sentence the prosecutor than find Rep Cannon guilty.

    Looking at the county's voting history, for countywide stuff, the Democratic primary in Fulton county basically IS the election. The (R)s don't even bother to run candidates half the time.
  • How about false arrest charges for he pigs then?
  • The GOP got what they wanted, which was to give their base that jolt of adrenaline they only get from watching someone jerk a knot in the tail of an uppity Black woman.
  • Just lucky to be alive.  They were terrified in that office.  Someone knocking repeatedly on that door? If that cops hadn't shown up, the governor would have had to stand his ground with nothing but great great great granddaddies Brown Bess.  The very same one he gutted six War o' Northern Aggressioners with at Andersonville.  They was prisoners asking for water but he gutted them good nonetheless.
  • Of course, she isn't! She never was - but the f***ing point was made wasn't it?? To humiliate and degrade her for daring to demand accountability by having the law signed in public.

    They sure showed her her "place"....didn't they?

  • This was all theatrics for OANN.

    That's a move for an egalitarian society. We're lucky if they stopped to get her Burger King on the way to jail.
  • Hopefully a lawsuit is pending.
  • All I can hope for is for Georgia voters to be mad enough to overcome the barriers to voting that are being thrown up and then throw out Gov. Kemp and his Klan.
  • Charged with "obstruction of law enforcement"?

    I don't want to wear the phrase out, but fark the police.
  • Rep. Park Cannon, a Democrat, was arrested on March 25 and charged with obstruction of law enforcement and disruption of the General Assembly.

    Pretty much the same things the capitol rioters got charged with for the January 6th Party on the Plaza.  Except they all got to go home, brag about it on Facebook and then get arrested after a thorough investigation.

    And I'll wait and see who goes to prison there.  Bird Sanctuary A$$holes. That was supposed to be a FA/FO moment for them and it wasn't.

    here's some legislation for you.
    Anyone gets cuffs. Someone gets charged.
    If you cuff someone and charges get dropped, you spend what every time you were setting that person up for in the can, and a felony, and no more cop job for you.

    After the overzealous incident at the Capital Building the governor would have been justified when he heard sounds of someone trying to break the door down.

    What Proud Boy cop excusing prison cheerleading white jury praising nonsense!

  • Hmmm. She had a legal right to be in the building -- it was literally her job to be there. Also, knocking on a door? Freedom of speech, I would think, and directly related to her legislative responsibility (checks and balances, amitrite?)

    Difficulty: Georgia, and she's Black.

    Good on her. She did what was necessary at the risk of her own safety. Her constituents should be proud of her for standing up to this BS.

    Don't worry- if they do, the legislature will take over and nullify the irregularities.

    I just...what?

    That's way too much accountability for civil servants with weapons.

    Side question for Fark Lawyers; can a jury recommend a different person for  prosecution in rendering a not guilty verdict for the current defendant, such as the prosecutor and/or arresting police in this case?
  • That was a direct violation of the GA state constitution.


    Article III. Section IV. Paragraph IX

    The members of both houses shall be free from arrest during sessions of the General Assembly, or committee meetings thereof, and in going thereto or returning therefrom

    If she was charged with disruption of the General Assembly, they're declaring that it was legally in session.

    The jury, technically, "fills out" a verdict form. The intent and the why and such is for deliberation.  They could say if asked what they thought but couldn't really "recommend" in that sense unless it was a Grand Jury.
