delirian is cursing the moderators for being asshats. They let neo-Nazis post, but won't let me mock an asshole who wants to watch gore porn.

@7: Still, given our courts, we aren't doing that bad, considering. If I had to guess 5 years ago I would have thought we would be far behind Germany, Italy, and lots of other countries. One of the benefits of our common law legal system is that once it figures out the answer, it only takes a couple of years for it to trickle down, and once it trickles down it becomes as solid as a rock. Now we have 37 (or 38) states with SSM rights. We are more than a decade ahead of where I expected we would be 5 years ago. In 3 months I expect it to be 50 + territories.

Hey Dan, wtf? Aren't you all going to say something about the Alabama clusterfuck that happened yesterday? I mean same sex marriage in that state is dead right now. And only story we got in the last 24 hours was about Slovenia.

From what I understand, the law requiring the emails to be stored on a federal computer was passed after she left office as Secretary of State.

But, I'm surprised the Alabama Supreme Court decision wasn't listed here. That is a pretty big thing. It's not often that a State Supreme Court goes up against the federal courts. And because of it we effectively lost an SSM state.

@3,4: So? If you know our courts, they have moved at lightning speed on this issue. And we are still ahead of Germany and Italy. The US isn't doing that bad, considering.

@3: It was probably added to try to get a plea agreement. This is standard US Attorney operating procedure--add on big crimes to get you to plea to the little ones they can actually convict you of.

@20/21: Yikes, that was a bad edit. What I meant to say in my last garbled line is that people who pooh-pooh his actions and pretend it wasn't his fault because he was ill are just rewarding the behavior. Maybe he needs treatment for a mental illness. But he also needs jail time for being an asshole.

@20: Mental illness by itself doesn't mean that you lack rationality or don't understand the consequences of your actions. That is a cop out. Being an asshole and having a mental illness are not mutually exclusive. The vast, vast majority of people with mental illnesses are law abiding citizens. Why? Because they understand consequences--they are disabled, not children. The crimes you forgive people with mental illnesses for are those where they can't see the consequences, such as disorderly conduct or public urination. Planning a complex prank to get attention does not qualify. He not only knew the consequences, he desired them. And people like you are not say "don't hurt him, he's the real victim!" which is probably just what he wanted.

It should follow him for the rest of his life. As you said, he hurts victims and the community. Let him be an example of how not to act. Let people know that if you do something this cruel, racist, and stupid, then you will be punished for it and it will impact the rest of your life.

This is why we have jury nullification. More people need to be educated on this right.

@7: Indeed. The Buzzfeedification of The Stranger continues. How long before we get the "you won't believe..." posts or listicles filled with GIFs? I'm at my breaking point. The Stranger has officially become a joke.
