*headdesk* Really? I did NOT know that. Not at alllllll. I certainly wasn't both expressing my opinion on the actual event and at the same time taking a jab at the ubiquity of cat pictures on the internet. Which of course subsequently gets labeled troll by idiots to dense to figure out my position. Or by people who want the people who killed her to get away with it. Hard to say.

Because between 5 and 10% of convicted felons are actually innocent of the crime they were convicted of. Given the current state of laws in the US, saying they are wholly innocent of any lawbreaking is insane. In any case, that means that between 1 in 10 and 1 in 20 of people killed by the state should not have been, which is wholly unacceptable.

Email Server. Really that's all you need to know. She turned over roughly half the emails, then DELETED the rest. When several of the emails reference second hand that she employed one of the premier private intelligence services in the world none of which is primarily touched upon by the turned over emails, this is a pretty big problem.

Bullshit. Rather, the only successful violence by those who weren't very obviously batshit fucking crazy(Batman shooter, Gillibrand shooter, that dude with the plane), ignoring the Unabomber as an outlier, was committed by right wing adherents. Just because the left can't organize its way out of a wet paper bag when it comes to committing violence doesn't mean the don't give it the old college try. *cough*Weathermen*cough*

Except clearly the anti-puppies didn't find it that great since they nominated two other novels in place of it. Moreover, since none of the people involved in SP3 had read it and its market penetration was not great enough to have a copy available for several of the people deciding the final slate to buy easily, the only way for them to nominate it would be to nominate something they hadn't read.
