More On The Fields Conviction

   Friend of mine who lives in C'ville was telling me about a robocall she got the night before the trial started. It referenced, among other things, C'ville's [black*] mayor and Chief of Police, and "Jew" this and "Jew" that. And you thought those credit-card robocalls were obnoxious...
   Honestly, I was concerned about the Fields trial because we'd heard so little about it. I thought there was going to turn out to be some crazy complication or mitigating circumstance, and the whole goddamn thing was going to bring the Klan et al. and antifa et al. back to C'ville and there was going to be another shitstorm.
   I am a bit surprised that the verdict was premeditated murder. To the layperson--or this layperson, anyway--a moment of irrational, violent passion seemed more likely. But I suppose the facebook post about using a car to run down protesters...yeah...I guess that counted.
   I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say that, in retrospect, the Unite the Right rally may not have been the very best idea that anyone ever had.

He doesnt look to bright in that photo. And yeah, that deleted post, along with backing up before charging the crowd, would suggest murder 1.
