1/ Spent the AM listening to @slate's reading of the lowlights of the #MuellerReport. Now waiting my turn watching some of my most disadvantaged neighbors grind through the broken machinery of the #Boston "justice" system.

Sing in me, Muse, of my righteous fucking fury

2/ The #MuellerReport explains in detail how the U.S. President worked to actively obstruct an active and open federal investigation w/o consequence.

Here in the #Boston Municipal Court, a group of young men are about to go to jail for riding dirtbikes on the highway.
3/ The #MuellerReport proves that the Trump campaign was lousy w/Russian contacts, & that the President's son was desperately thirsty for stolen oppo.

Here in the BMC, a DA is explaining to the judge why he needs more time to prosecute a deaf homeless man for a minor drug crime.
4/ The #MuellerReport explains that although the Trump is a criminal he gets a pass bc (1) he's too important, (2) he's too stupid & (3) his actions were too public.

Here in the BMC, my client faces a deportable conviction for yelling at his boss while trying to collect back pay
5/ You get it. "Justice" is a sick joke, and anyone who actually believes that there is such a thing in this country is willfully naive, irredeemably ignorant, and/or simply too privileged to care.

We are shrugging the #MuelleReport off. I can see it happening in front of me.
6/If you have actually read the #MuellerReport and are OK w/no one ever facing consequences from it, here are some phrases you never get to use in my presence again:

--"rule of law"
--"respect for the Constitution"
--"lock her up"
--"no one is above the law"
--"justice is blind"
7/ In anticipation of the #MuellerReport, Trump has spent months railing about a fake "crisis" at the border. He has successfully made the act of legally seeking asylum at a port of entry out to be more of a "crime" than attempting to disrupt an ongoing federal investigation.
8/ Trump has made legally seeking asylum at our borders next to impossible, forcing desperate families fleeing unimaginable violence to cross an invisible line on a map & turn themselves in to Border Patrol w/in feet of entry. They face consequences beyond anything he ever will.
9/ I've never put a lot of weight on the whole #TrumpRussia thing. Whatever happened there he's done far worse while in office, & we always knew he'd get away w/it anyway. But AG Barr's pathetic show combined w/the report itself & the realities of my own cases has SET ME OFF
10/ Come spend a morning in any #Boston district court, the #immigrationcourt detained docket, or any housing court. Confront a "justice" system in which non-white lives explicitly DO NOT MATTER & where, as a BMC judge said out loud this AM, "we don't see a lot of rich people"
11/ Do you know what would happen if one of my poor Latino clients did anything *close* to this? If you or I did it? Do you understand what the "justice" system does to regular people who don't happen to live or work in the White House?


12/ It's well-documented that Trump's most critical wins were areas which had seen recent rapid growths in immigrant populations. Russia or no Russia, Trump ultimately won by playing on the fears and prejudices of people terrified of losing "our" country to "them."
13/ Idiocy, incompetence, and criminality have become so absurdly manifest that Trump fans created--for the first time ever--a conspiracy theory (#QAnon) to explain not why the government is secretly bad, but why it is secretly *good.* Why would they believe the #MuellerReport?
14/ White #Boston lost its collective shit when new @DARollins announced that some misdemeanor offenses would no longer be prosecuted in the interests of justice. Seeing many of the same folks celebrate Trump not being prosecuted.

Sing, O Muse. Fucking belt it.
