Earlier today I learned about this #StandWithVic hashtag and the total gibberish sent by his lawyers as part of a LOLsuit

Reminder to check out the defamation basics #Law140 on why this is going to end poorly for him
You seem to have missed the thread explaining the law

Not entirely surprised literacy is not your strong suit though

In today's criminal justice news, Syracuse (NY) PD officer Christopher Buske intentionally covers his badge from cell phone video, so he can rip unarmed 23yo Shaolin Moore from his car and beat him for "a non-criminal local offense"

Story: syracuse.com/crime/2019/06/…
Video:
Remember: when the police apologists tell you "if you've done nothing wrong, you have nothing to hide" they never seem to apply that same logic to the people who are paid with your tax money and know in advance what rights of yours they plan to violate

Not only does Syracuse PD brutalize this guy for sport – they then demand the innocent passenger stop filming the abuse, and confiscate his phone

It appears a decisive majority of you want a #Law140 explaining how Garner PD has f*cked up in charging Mikisa Thompson with a noise ordinance violation and then taking her family's electronics in a nighttime raid

You want it, you got it 👊
Today's #Law140 topic: due process, vagueness, and canons of construction

(Or: why Garner NC's noise ordinance is unconstitutional)
First, as always, remember that the standard #Law140 disclaimers still apply:

There will never be a more-fitting moment for @SpeakerPelosi to resurrect Congress's inherent contempt powers
(Reminder to our @fsckemall patrons that there's a #Law140 re Congressional investigative powers)

Dear @ChrisEvans: if this clown sues you, I'll be happy to defend you pro bono. I *love* Rule 11 sanctions!
For everyone else, we have a #Law140 on defamation in the thread below

Turns out everything Captain America tweeted is opinion protected by the First Amendment

I mean that'd be a fun bonus, but purely incidental to curb-stomping hack lawyers who try to pillage the First Amendment 😉

Looks like a solid majority of you want a thread on defamation basics!

For the folks who picked Option 3, #Law140 is the hashtag y'all picked for what I'd dubbed Twitter University School of Law way back in 2016

So with that historical note out of the way, the next class of Twitter University School of Law (#Law140) is now in session!

Tonight's topic: defamation basics

If you're not familiar with the story Keith was talking about in that prior tweet, you need to give a listen to Monday's episode of @fsckemall:

Fsck 'Em All (@fsckemall) is a labor of love I've been compiling with your help for ~1.5 years now, detailing the literally-never-ending f*ckery of America's criminal justice system

fsckemall.com
I haven't done an official count yet, but we've had roughly 1,500ish stories of police brutality, incompetence, and corruption over our 89-episode run

Another 25 of them were covered in Monday's episode

Alright, let's dive into a #Law140 on birthright citizenship and this idiotic story

The TL;DR:
1️⃣ Trump cannot do this via Executive Order
2️⃣ News outlets who uncritically parrot Trump's claim that he can, without noting he can't, are misinforming readers
(They're also promoting even more civic illiteracy than normal. But I realize that ship set sail a long time ago.)

Before we begin, the standard #Law140 disclaimers apply:

Soooo with the lunch hour fast approaching on the East Coast, I'd like to take a moment to talk to you about something very important

A podcast

Specifically the Fsck 'Em All (@fsckemall) podcast, a weekly compilation on just how f*cked our justice system is
If you've never listened to @fsckemall before, you can dive right in with yesterday's episode "Judge Dredd Was A Documentary" here:

Every Monday, we take a trip across the country and talk about just a small sample of the daily deluge of criminal justice news (and occasional political punditry by me)
