Laughing at Trump’s cabinet picks is not a laughing matter when charges are filed.
Several months ago Sessions hinted at a new drug war against the states that legalized recreational uses of marijuana citing a on going problem with violence. It wasn’t until the strike on Syria that open criticism was seen of Trump from his supporters.
However not all Trump voters have changed their minds even after the strikes on on Syria or talks of a preemptive strike on North Korea which could spark a global war including China and Russia?
Would some Trump supporters allow a full scale drug war on the states when Trump himself said he stood with states rights simply for not being smokers themselves?
Are people seeing Trump now as a deceiver on all issues or just on Syria and North Korea?
Is our system regressing into a new dark age of tyranny and never ending wars?
The Independent Reports:
A woman who was charged with disorderly conduct for laughing during the confirmation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions has been found guilty and could face up to a year in prison.
Desiree Fairooz has been convicted for laughing early in Mr Sessions’ confirmation hearing after Alabama Senator Richard Shelby said that the future attorney general’s record of “treating all Americans equally under the law is clear and well documented.” She has been convicted alongside two other protesters who had donned Ku Klux Klan costumes during the confirmation. Those two protesters could also face up to a year in prison.
The conviction comes after a two-day trial in the United States Superior Court in Washington. Ms Fairooz told the New York Times that she is “really disappointed” and that her lawyer are planning on filing post-trial motions to have the verdict cast aside. It is too early to discuss an appeal she says.
