#GracynDawnCourtright apparently missed essential classes at @universityofky as she doesn’t “know what treason is.” Guess what, Gracyn? @PamKeithFL “For the “intent” element of a crime, what matters is you intended the action, not that you intended to do something criminal.”
Huge props to @KyKernel for helping identify #TrumpTerrorist #GracynDawnCourtright. It’s also worth noting the @courierjournal article mentions that Capitol building surveillance video is part of what lead to her arrest.

#SuzanneIanni and #MarkSahady, two #TrumpTerrorists of the #DCInsurrection. Ianni helped organize busses. Were they buses #GinnyThomas (wife of SCOTUS Justice Clarence Thomas) helped pay for or different buses bringing in other #TrumpThugs?
This is about the arrest of #TrumpTerrorists #SuzanneIanni and #MarkSahady, but #GinnyThomas did similar things. When will she be arrested? Was the money she used also authorized by SCOTUS Justice Clarence Thomas?

Thread: Alternatives to police response. 1st up: CAHOOTS in Eugene, Oregon. eugene-or.gov/4508/CAHOOTS
“This town of 170,000 replaced some cops w/ medics & mental health workers. It's worked for over 30 yrs.”

“It works this way: 911 dispatchers filter calls they receive -- if they're violent or criminal, they're sent to police. If they're within CAHOOTS' purview, the van-bound staff will take the call.”

cnn.com/2020/07/05/us/…
“CAHOOTS workers responded to 24,000 calls in 2019, ~20% of dispatches & ~150 required police backup. The program saves the city ~$8.5M in public safety costs yearly, plus another $14M in ambulance & ER costs.”
