So a judge let this fucking psycho out. If he were brown, he'd probably be in a supermax. Actually, they probably would have killed him right off the bat...

Interesting line of defense his counsel seems to be developing: 'If President Trump says similar shit, you must acquit.'
Hasson's public defender Elizabeth Oyer told the court, "I fear that through the vivid imaginations and colorful writing of the prosecutors, the case has developed a profile that does not line up with the facts."

Oyer referenced President Donald Trump multiple times, comparing her client's racial slurs and targeting of Democrats and the media to similar views that the President has taken.

Oyer said the list of names Hasson had allegedly assembled didn't amount to a hit list but "looks like the sort of list that our commander in chief might have compiled while watching Fox News in the morning."

She added that while the racial slurs Hasson allegedly used in private writings were condemnable, they are now part of the "national vocabulary."

"Donald Trump uses similar epithets in his everyday language and tweets," Oyer said.

So neo-Nazi terrorists can walk around free because they sound just like Trump, and Twitter can't rid itself of neo-Nazis because they'd end up banning too many Republican politicians. Oy vey... :fp:

Prosecutor: Ford-versus-Chevy argument preceded Bedford shooting, standoff

BEDFORD — A Bedford man who prosecutors said shot his girlfriend five times last week after a fight over car manufacturers escalated was denied bond Monday in Bedford County.

Mark Edwin Turner, 56, was arrested early the morning of April 23 after he barricaded himself in a residence on Shepherd Lane for more than two hours, according to the Bedford County Sheriff’s Office.

He was charged with two counts of malicious wounding, one count of using a firearm in a felony and one count of possessing a firearm as a felon.

Turner was at a family dinner with his girlfriend, her adult son and the son’s girlfriend the previous night, according to Bedford Commonwealth’s Attorney Wes Nance.

At a hearing Monday in Bedford General District Court, Nance said there was drinking involved and Turner started arguing with his girlfriend’s adult son about the merits of Chevrolet versus Ford.

The fight escalated, with Turner producing a knife and then a handgun, according to Nance. In an ensuing scuffle, Turner ended up shooting his girlfriend five times and his girlfriend’s son once. They suffered serious but not life-threatening injuries.
