    I've had so much anxiety over this case. It really symbolizes a lot of suffering for my community and my own fears living in this country. I'm truly glad that for once, black life was owed what it was long due.

    The good news is there are plenty of white supremacist groups in prison that can ass-rape him and then recruit him.

    That's a bit of a stretch.

    Nah, they'll have to put him in solitary for his own protection.

    He wouldn't last a week in general pop considering what he did.

    I'm sure if he was acquitted, there would have been riots and lives lost, just like in the 90's with the Rodney King trial. It wouldn't have been a civil war, and it wouldn't have been a world-wide race riot.

    Would there have been riots? Almost certainly
    Do riots equal civil war? Not remotely.

    wonder how the cops will retaliate now

    That really smells of a thinly veiled praise the white jurors from preventing a civil war.

    If it's true solitary is quite a bit worse then gen pop, so i'm good with that. If it's just confined with the pedo's and other's then blah.

    Probably repeating most of their behavior from last summer. You know, almost killing senior citizens, assaulting children, assaulting journalists, kettling protesters so they can tear gas and pepper ball the fuck outta them for funsies.

    You know, standard cop stuff.

    I never sit in relief for long at small progress, just can't.
    I hear what you are saying, and mostly agree.

    But take some time and just celebrate. Clear cut victories are few and far between, and a lot of people worked hard to bring about this kind of change. Honor the sacrifices and hard work that helped to bring about this result.

    So just be happy for at least a day or two SOMETHING GOOD HAPPENED.

    And he really was convicted on ALL THREE CHARGES

    A bit off topic, but very much in line with your post: I listened to some of the defense arguments. The defense lawyer made it hard to NOT hate this guy with a passion, and to not hate white supremacists over all. HE MIGHT HAVE DIED FROM CARBON MONOXIDE POISONING INSTEAD. I will identify this line with white supremacists for a long time, and it is a reminder that, as you alluded to in your post, that the war is not over, a lot of fighting remains, and that white supremacists are even more dishonest and evil than I thought.

    Crowder is already rambling on twitter about cops leaving the force.

    There is a limit to the success of conservative populism and the exploitation of "little guy" or "silent majority" rhetoric, and it is very often reached because of the emaciated, corrupted personalities of the demagogues themselves.

    He won't be in Gen. Pop. And, even if he was, the Aryans wouldn't be able to protect him even if they wanted to.

    Cops don't have friends in prison....regardless of their skin colour.

    No, I am not kidding. The "civil war" bullshit has become tiring, not to mention word war one. Common.
