Urteil: Freispruch

»das Gericht sieht aus eigener Lebenserfahrung im Fenster putzen, und ich putze nicht gut Fenster, den Tatbestand der Sachbeschädigung als nicht gegeben an. …
… Da das entfernen selbst mit Wasser und Tuch gehe recht leicht und es nicht vorstellbar ist, dass die Reinigung 4-5 Stunden gedauert haben könnte. Eine substantielle Veränderung der Fensterscheibe war nicht gegeben.«

Soviel zum Juristischen.
Die Vertreterin der Staatsanwaltschaft sagte, sie habe nicht vor in Berufung zu gehen, aber am Schluss entscheidet das ihr Vorgesetzter Dr. Hader, der im #Jansenbrücke|nverfahren federführend ist.

I am English, and I am elated that Georgia has turned #Blue and come out for Biden.
I'd like to tell you why.
Most of my followers are Pro Europe, #FBPE, and American has such a different system and history to here, this might help explain things a little.
Biden is now leading in Georgia by 917 votes!
#Georgia has turned #Blue!
American politics is purposefully confusing, but THIS is hugely significant. Georgia is not any old state.

A win in Georgia would leave Biden one electoral vote short of the presidency. But there's more..
#Georgia is old slaver territory.
Georgia is where many freed slaves stayed.
Georgia is grass roots civil rights movement.
Georgia has seen huge voter suppression.
Georgia’s Black women have done the world proud.
Just Look. 91% is #Historical.

6 months ago, we were in #Montgomery, #Alabama, & when we stopped by Dexter Avenue King Memorial Baptist Church, our tour guide, Wanda (standing in 3rd pic), mentioned about Rep. #JohnLewis’ diagnosis of pancreatic cancer so we mentally wished him a speedy recovery. ImageImageImageImage
A few days ago, Rep. #JohnLewis passed away. He was the youngest & last survivor of the #BigSix civil rights activists - one of them being #MLK. #RestInPower

“Freedom is not a state; it is an act... Freedom is the continuous action we all must take, & each generation must do its part to create an even more fair, more just society.” - #JohnLewis, 2017

Rev. Dr. Joseph Lowery has passed from life to life. A giant of the Civil Rights Movement, Rev. Dr. Lowery helped form the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, which led the mass movement work under the leadership of Rev. Dr. King. 1/ #ripjosephlowery…
I had the incredible privilege to meet and speak w/ Rev. Dr. Lowery on set of the movie “Selma” several years ago. He was at once towering and kind. America would not be America without the work and witness of Rev. Dr. Lowery. 2/ #RIP #JosephLowery #Selma #CivilRightsMovement
Thank you, sir. We honor you on this day. May you rest in peace knowing your hands, your feet, your body and soul helped change the world. 3/3 #RIPJosephLowery #JosephLowery #CivilRightsMovement

Remember when #Republicans #seceded from the #Union to defend the @PeculiarInstitution of #Slavery?

Neither do I.
Remember when #Republicans created the #KKK as an armed force of masked #terrorists to #murder newly #freedslaves and government officials that protected them?

Neither do I.
Remember when #Republicans enacted #apartheid in America through so-called #JimCrow laws?

Neither do I.

Do you know the history of the Civil Rights movement? You could start by reading vol 1 of "America in the King Years," "Parting the Waters" by @taylorbranch.…
@taylorbranch In 1962, the Civil Rights Commission was going to make a very strong statement about racism. Politically, it would be problematic for President Kennedy. JFK was told "It is legal for the police to use dogs." So, turn to "Afro-Dog" next.…
