@vikorr,
Those guys were clearly unclear on the meaning of "shut up".

@vikorr,
February is also when the Florida movie theater popcorn shooting trial is scheduled.

https://able2know.org/topic/234184-1

A short synopsis:

Retired police officer Curtis Reeves cannot stand people talking or texting during movies, and has a history of making a huge issue of it whenever it happens.

The guy in the row in front of him at a movie was texting his baby sitter during the movie previews.

Mr. Reeves pestered him relentlessly until the texter lost his temper and dumped his popcorn on Mr. Reeves.

Mr. Reeves then pulled a gun and shot and killed the texter (single shot through the heart).

Mr. Reeves is claiming self defense. He says he feared for his life because he thought the guy was going to do more than just dump his popcorn.

Mr. Reeves is in fact old and was more frail than the guy he shot.

The state of Florida believes that Mr. Reeves committed aggravated battery and second degree murder.

@oralloy,
Hey, that popcorn might have been hot, and that movie theatre butter can leave a horrid stain.

Chauvin and his three cronies are scheduled to be arraigned in a federal court this coming Tuesday. Their lawyers will be arguing several motions - among them a request by Lane, Kueng and Thao to have their trials separately from Chauvin (they’re saying it’ll prejudice everyone if Chauvin’s around).

Chauvin just (yesterday) filed to appeal his conviction and sentencing.

@snood,
I just read of this, too. Can they deny an appeal?

@Mame,
Definitely. And I don’t think his chances are that good. But I guess you never know with this “justice” system.

@snood,
Well, it'll be interesting to see what arguments his lawyers are using to advance the appeal. What a waste of time and money!
