“Yes, so fascist that they can't even get the Judges to enforce written law.
Whether or not im for or against this law is irrelevant (im against it). But your comment lacks any basis whatsoever as this is essentially the opposite occuring.
Are you saying that the law itself is fascist? perhaps that would be more appropriate. The important takeaway here is that the Judge felt that because of the number and race of individuals being targeted that it was justified to regard the police evidence as insufficient in proving their case.”
“I think my feelings about Ida would be best described in a Poem by legend Robert Frost:
Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice”
“Yeah, lets force the only person on planet earth who can deal with the stench of that place to move out so real estate developers can begin the process of figuring out how they can get people to live there.
This guy is an american hero in my book. America faces turbulent times ahead, hopefully we can find the answer for the cancerous consumerism that is metasticising good natured people to pre-fab homes and look to Christopher Canalumbus for the answer to the future.
The 5th amendment says that no mans houseboat shall be taken without due process and just cause, and he shall be compensated justly for it. Moving this man's houseboat would be downright unconstitutional, and I am not going to sit here and let anyone else bad mouth the united states of america.
“An interesting legal point that many huffPOSTERS will surely be fascinated by is the case of possession: Who does this peacock belong to after it has escaped the possession of the Zoo?
In the landmark case Pierson v. Post where we saw two New York Natives fighting over the spoils of a fox hunt, the court held that he who maintained possession and had the intent to possess was the true owner (despite whatever pursuit the opposing party had conducted).
Here however we are dealing with a wild animal that is not indeginous to the locale, so a reasonable person would know that this is not fair game and that this animal has in fact escaped.
The same thing happened in 1947 when a seal from barnum and baileys traveling circus got loose in the New York Harbor, a fisherman claimed ownership but the courts said that no reasonable man could believe that it had been roaming independently.
So all of you peacock catchers out there--Put those nets away! this peacock remains property of the zoo!”

“The question of who this peacock belongs to is moot. It's not a peacock. It's a peahen. While it's reasonable to assume the peahen escaped from somewhere, it's not reasonable to assume that this peahen is the only escaped peahen in the city.”
“I've broken up a few school yard fights among six graders in my time. Sounds like this was what that was....school teacher that Walcott is. He just couldn't help it. You don't want the kids to hurt each other and themselves.”
