Sen. Al Franken
*Sigh*
Al Franken is such a douchebag.

Spoken like a true luminary
Its getting so they think their opinions are all there are, and some of them are even trying to get any contrary opinions declared as hate speech.
Well said, Coyote.

Thank you for the long list of left wing talking points.
Hey, you shut up Coyote about liberal talking points!!!
There was a clown in office and we want him to stand trial for war crimes!!!
I love the comedic images, what can I say?

Re: A Little More Avenatti News (Very Little)
So if LAPD is still investigating then they could not yet have charged Avenatti with anything, yet the previous report I cited said the LAPD had claimed he'd been charged, while there's nothing in the news quoting anyone in the LAPD nor an LAPD report saying this.
Meaning he's been arrested (charged) and is being held on Probable Cause, more than likely because it was reported as a domestic issue where there is a higher probability that a furtherance of violence will continue in the absence of direct intervention. Holding someone on Probable Cause (51% more probable than it is 49% improbable) based on a preliminary investigation is standard protocol. It then gets routed (probably in this case a Family/Domestic Violence Unit) who investigates further. Based on their secondary investigation, either charges are dropped or the DA's office picks up the case for prosecution. Then the defendant and attorney(s) work with the DA to decide whether they want to take a plea deal or fight it in open court.
So in this case it sounds like he's been charged but not convicted.
Regarding the recent LAPD arrest I remain perplexed and await more news. Either Aventti's in trouble for domestic abuse, or someone else is in trouble for filing a false report and (if the report is true that the LAPD had been shown visible injuries) fabricating evidence.
Most states now, California for certain, lawfully require patrol officers to make an arrest where there is either visible or bodily injury or a complaint of pain. And the officers have to determine who is the Primary Aggressor and who is the Predominant Aggressor (more often than not its the same person). But its not always a fun job and often times it can be difficult to piece together relevant facts when both parties are injured and their stories are diametrically opposed. Requires giving them a Miranda Warning and digging deep into their statements to look for internal inconsistencies or testimonies that don't align with the evidence.
