I actually think trumps cult will love this one. They don’t care about the military either and will admire the ruthlessness.

Only after calling it fake news first, of course.

Looking on from afar, the violence on the streets by both sides of the political extremes is getting a Weimar Republic vibe.

It's getting scary, after Biden is elected, it'll calm down, the would be brown shirts will have lost their Rohm. Just for horsefeathers and giggles I tried the html code for a small o umlaut, got rendered as text.

They actually break and carry a lot of news that is related to military families. They were instrumental in getting Autism services covered by Tricare in 2012.

Yeah, its a good paper. I probably haven't seen a Stars and Stripes in 25 years, but I'm still pissed.

Look here, this is what white, economically anxious working class people in Pennsylvania and Wisconsin wanted.

Great news

https://www.apmreports.org/episode/2020 ... re-dropped

The Mississippi man who was tried six times for the same crime and whose case was the subject of Season 2 of the APM Reports podcast In the Dark sees his two-decade saga come to an end.

At long last, Curtis Flowers is free.

The Mississippi man endured nearly 23 years behind bars, six trials, four death sentences and, most recently, months of house arrest for murders he always maintained that he didn’t commit, and for which the evidence of his guilt was weak.

His legal odyssey ended Friday when the Mississippi Attorney General’s Office, which had been reviewing the case since February, submitted a motion to dismiss the indictments against him for the 1996 murders of four people in Winona, Mississippi.

Fun fact, in the 80’s this guy sang Hungry Eyes on the Dirty Dancing Soundtrack. Eric Carmen, Antonio Sabato Jr and Chachi. Awesome.

How does double jeopardy not apply in a situation like this?
