    Hypocritical religious conservatives, war, inequality, and the selfish nature of 70-80% of humanity confirmed for me that there isn't one. Or if there is, They are certainly not "just and loving" and do not care what happens to their creations.

    I read a KARE 11 article that said they were kind of backed into a corner.

    Yeah real strong start from Mary.

    I understand prosecutors have to follow procedures and it seems like her staff just really messed this up, and I’m guessing that’s why they were dropped but holy hell

    Holy ****. That was Mary Moriarty?!

    edit: wait, was she the one who dismissed the charges or the prosecutor who lied about the note?

    edit 2: it was Moriarty who dropped the charges.

    There is an interesting, and heartbreaking, case that has been catching some attention in the media in the Twin Cities these past couple of weeks, but I haven't seen any discussion of it here.

    Here are the apparent facts.

    A girl was raped at age 13 by a 32 year old man who was staying with her family. It took her a couple of years, but eventually she reported it and the man was charged. At the beginning of this year, his trial began.

    During the middle of about two hours of testimony by the girl about this rape, a victims rights advocate slipped a note to the prosecuting attorney that said "venue?" This note was apparently a reminder to the prosecutor to elicit testimony that the rape occurred in Hennepin County, where the defendant was being tried.

    The judge asked the prosecutor what the note said, apparently because the judge had some sort of order in place dealing with witness sequestration, or perhaps a gag order.

    In any event, here is where the story gets strange. The prosecutor straight up lied to the judge. She told the judge that the note just was just a reminder on the correct pronunciation of a name that was being used. I have no idea why the prosecutor lied about this, but she also had the victims rights advocate forge a new note consistent with what the prosecutor told the judge.

    Somehow, the lie was found out. At that point, the Hennepin County Attorney, newly elected to office, decided to dismiss the charges based upon the misconduct of the prosecutor. The defendant walked.

    Now the victim is left sitting there thinking W T F?
    Some serious discipline down the road for her.

    Hard to believe ANY line of foundation questions would not address the location of the crime. A 1L would cover that.

    Oh that was the case?? Yikes. All I’d heard was a prosecutor made a bone headed move with a note.

    disgusting

    There is--I've seen him. Black Clarinet player I beheld at around 2:00 a.m. at Nola Jazz Fest 1996. Unearthly. No halo but a divine chill.

But aside from the fact that it takes some pretty simplistic and unquestioning thinking to accept that belief, it doesn't explain or excuse the Right's dreadful post-birth policies.

    I love the books have to be "appropriate for grade level." You wouldn't want more difficult books for the smarter students. That makes the dumber students feel bad.

    Conservatives are snowflakes.
