BREAKING #2 THURSDAY JUNE 23
REGJB MIAMI CRIMINAL COURTHOUSE CLOSED
All morning cases are canceled. There is chatter- confirmed with police officers- that there is "a legitimate threat" about two pipe bombs.
However, Afternoon Bond hearings are not canceled.
Which means, someone doesn't care very much about the safety of the afternoon bond hearing judge, staff, lawyers, and the public attending those hearings.
This doesn't make any sense. Unless there is NOT a credible bond threat and the chief judges just decided to pull the plug on court this morning
BREAKING BOMB THREAT AT REGJB
UPDATE: Thursday is all about voting...
In our dear England, today is the day we vote on whether to remain in the European Union. Rumpole says vote to remain.
In the House Of Representatives, Democrats are staging a good, old fashioned sit-in, refusing to let the House come to order until they are guaranteed a vote on the firearm's bill.
"All we are saying,
is let us have a vote"
Meanwhile in the REGJB, there are several important Possession of Marijuana cases being litigated. Throw in some disorderly conduct and loitering and prowling cases, and you have some serious legal stuff being done.
Courage is doing what you think is right despite popular opinion to the contrary.
As President Kennedy was fond of saying, the hottest places in hell are reserved for those, who in times of moral crises, do nothing and preserve their neutrality.
So all praise is due for the group of senators, who in the face of 90 percent of the American public approving of a ban on the sale of firearms to those people on a terrorist watch list, have held their ground, and refused to let the law pass.
Yup, they are doing the lord's work.
Either that or they are the most morally bankrupt, stupid group of politicians who so fear the NRA, that they are willing to let terrorists buy weapons at good-ol USA gun shows. Even when those weapons shoot up a night club or a school.
See You In Court.
