MY CITY IN RUINS
Baltimore joins the long list of American cities caught in the throes of upheaval and rioting and civil disturbance sparked by police misconduct. Our city- Miami- burned more than once in the 1980's. At some point people just won't take it anymore.
Speaking of burning, as per @davidovalle305 's tweet, there was a small fire in the REGJB Monday morning.
Plus someone defecated in the hallway on the second floor.
Miami- see it like a native.
Those were the days.
We don't practice civil law.
We are admittedly not experts in pleadings, motions for summary judgement and other civil stuff. But we're pretty sure this pleading is not a winning one. We've admittedly wanted to end a pleading with the words "You control nothing. You are nothing. And you can do nothing. F*ck you. Die", as this pleading ends. And there is a certain stylistic rhythmic theme to the coda of this document. But we've never done it.
