In a 13-page opinion, Thomas accused his colleagues of “bending the rules” to show their “concern for racial justice.” “The Court must be disturbed by the racist rhetoric in” the juror’s affidavit and “must want to do something about it,” Thomas suggested. But, he complained, today’s ruling only prolongs the inevitable by sending Tharpe’s case back to the lower courts for a “useless do-over.” And in doing so, he continued, the court delayed justice for Jaquelin Freeman, “the black woman who was brutally murdered by Tharpe 27 years ago.” “Because this Court should not be in the business of ceremonial handwringing,” Thomas lamented, “I respectfully dissent.” ~ The Juror Who Said The N-Word ~ Keith Tharpe And Jaquelin Freeman ~ A juror called this death row inmate the n-word. Now the Supreme Court is sending his case back to the lower courts. ~ Take a Knee Against Trump at the National Championship Game! ~ Supreme Court cites juror’s racism in death penalty reprieve ~ It is not every day that I agree with Justice Clarence Thomas. However, he explored issues in the Barney Gattie interview that the majority opinion, and the press results, did not consider. This is a good case against the death penalty. If Keith Tharpe had been given a life sentence, nobody would have played gotcha with a drunken, elderly juror. ~ SCOTUS issued a ruling on the case January 8, 2018, ~ @nihilist_arbys Bannon is a reminder that, even if you’re a creepy, gin soaked walking corpse covered in bugs and sores, life can still get worse Eat arbys ~ repost. ~ swimming pool q’s ~ Logospilgrim ~ grumpkin’s tail ~ Tua Tagovailoa ~ Shell and Nigeria have failed on oil pollution clean-up, Amnesty says ~ Nigeria: Oil spills lead to increased newborn mortality in the Niger Delta ~ Militants are devastating Nigeria’s oil industry again.

No shit. Literally. ~ the spell check suggestion for shithole is shibboleth ~ Has anyone else noticed that Amurica is going bonkers about DJT describing Haiti with a crude expression, but does not seem to care that Haiti is a terrible place to live. Calling DJT names is not going to improve living conditions in Haiti. ~ pictures for this gratuitous linkage today are from “The Special Collections and Archives, Georgia State University Library”. ~ selah
