It's National Prison Riot Day!!
The first part of the prisons likely to be hit will be the kitchens, where stoves will remain unlit, ready-meals unheated and thousands of breakfasts uncooked.
From there the impact will fan out. The laundry will be left unwashed, prison corridors un-mopped, and the lawns on the external grounds ring-fenced with barbed wire will go uncut.
On Tuesday, America’s vast army of incarcerated men and women – at 2.3pm of them they form by far the largest imprisoned population in the world – will brace itself for what has the potential to be the largest prison strike in US history.
Nineteen days of peaceful protest are planned across the nation, organised largely by prisoners themselves.
Imran Awan, the former IT aide to congressional Democrats whose federal bank fraud case has drawn the interest of top Republicans, avoided jail time Tuesday after the defense complained about disparaging comments made against the defendant by President Trump and others.
During a hearing Tuesday in Washington, U.S. District Judge Tanya S. Chutkan sentenced Awan to three months of supervised release plus time served. Chutkan, who cited “unfounded allegations” against Awan, also did not impose a fine.
Awan, who pleaded guilty in July to making a false statement on a loan application, delivered an emotional statement vowing: “I promise you this second chance will not go to waste.”
The prosecution, in a recent sentencing memorandum, did not advocate jail time for Awan.
Prosecutors said the government conducted a “thorough investigation of those allegations” but determined federal charges were not warranted. The case was investigated by the U.S. Capitol Police and the FBI’s Washington field office.

Good Morning All
It's coming fast now, connecting the dots has become a "picture" that may become the "pixels" of the greatest work of Art in our lifetime. If Art imitates Life, then it's time to paint new pictures. lol...." WTH is ML talking about ? "....not sure yet actually, but's it's something maybe ?
U.S. District Judge Tanya S. Chutkan acknowledged that Awan did not end up on investigators radar because of fraud, but because of his work in House. But called those allegations "unfounded," and said they came from "highest level" of government.
