Ah. Well I don't really know what case to build from that. I was really hoping you'd know, since y'know...you're the one I was talking to in the first place. Dammit.

I think I was being sarcastic*.

The girl got convicted. Maybe next time she should be nicer to her boyfriend(s).

"Sarcastic."

Did I do that right?

I know how to use punctuation marks, especially when I have to do emoticons.


Do you and your little buddy practice in your spare time?

Being that I am 'scared', yes, yes you did.

He's not so bad. If only he could fight his own battles instead of living vicariously through yours.

I'm glad I'm not the only one that thinks it's just hate-cuddling.

Actually, he is.

It's tough being this awesome. I don't blame him.

You should give him a star. You know, to give back to your followers.

It's all good, debate is a big part of ATS, to me though, what is relevant is how the court ruled in this case.

Exactly, that's the main issue. According to the courts, she killed him with a text message. It's a severe overreach that will have dire implications on future cases and free speech.

I agree. I think there was a mistake by the DA in over-charging and by her attorney by opting out of a jury trial. Either way I think it will be over turned on appeal.

At a minimum I would suspect her sentencing to be drastically reduced, if not overturned entirely. I can't see this making it through an appeals process and being fully upheld.

I think you're right..most certainly she'd done better via jury, and also a good chance it could be overturned.

You mean the outcome of the ruling or how they arrived at the outcome?

A right is something that cannot be taken away by definition. If it is able to be taken it is not in fact a right but a privilege.
