The first sentence in the motion imploring the court to detain Hasson pending trial: The defendant intends to murder innocent civilians on a scale rarely seen

    (The title is just a play on a recent thread)
    Fake News! He is not a lieutenant in the USCG. He's only a seaman apprentice, a very low rank.
    I'm surprised he hold such a low rank after serving for several years.

          I don't know that this is fake news, but it is very shoddy reporting. Can't tell an E-2 from an O-3 is pretty appalling.

          This strong economy makes recruiting difficult, so perhaps the CG kept him in grade for longer than normal due to a dearth of replacements. How long was he an E-2?

            I agree. I haven't seen anything yet that says he actually did something. He had weapons; he had steroids. Neither is illegal.

                Possession of steroids -- anabolic or cortico -- without a physician's prescription is illegal. Regarding the firearms: were they properly registered for the jurisdiction in which he resided? If not, then possession of a firearm is illegal.

                  11 pages with 160+ posts and not all are about 'Muddy' Waters. You've posted there and should know better, but guess we can add liar to racism as part of your character traits ?

                    Only one person was referenced in the creation of that thread just as only one person was referenced here.

                    Your claims of racism just further highlights the double standards and hypocrisy of republicans. They feel justified and calling blacks dumb and lazy, that's not racist to them. But, the second you bring attention to these issues you're the one who's racist. Then you wonder why people like Rev Wright exists. If you weren't on such a high horse you'd realize that not everyone is going to continue tolerating this without speaking out, brashly.

                      Might be a Coast Guard version of Nathan Phillips.....

                      Thanks for finding that, major difference between an Officer and an Enlisted guy that can't get promoted. I'm glad that thye caught him and I'm also glad that you corrected the false aspects of this story.

                        Yeah, why does he have to be a "right wing" e xtremist? Can't he be a bald extremist? It seems to me the left digs into these guys backgrounds just to find out who they voted for. What about that Isis wife who wants to come back to the us? Is she a never-Trumper extremist or what? I know this is a politics thread, but not everything has to come down to voting record.

                          No one here posted support for his actions or terrorism.

                            "Black are dumb and lazy" is not a GOP position or a mainstream conservative position. Strawman fallacy.

                              Only one person/subject in the opening post, but a few more other persons/examples presented before getting to the bottom of the first page. Meanwhile this thread still focuses on a single example in our nation of 360+million.

                              As for double standards of republicans, or conservatives*, I'll remind again that my two sons are one quarter "Hispanic"**, and their mother was the half Hispanic, but also half German(her biological mother). She was adopted by a Black couple(he was a G.I. stationed in Germany, this was late 1950s) when about five years old, so when married to her I had Black in-laws (her adoptive mom was a great Cajun cook)(they both passed on years ago). I've a two granddaughters whom are quarter Korean, and a grandson whom is quarter Japanese, and a nephew whom is quarter Sikh, so I'm inclined to think I may have more racial and ethnic diversity in my family than you do yours.

                              * = I consider myself more Conservative than Republican, but since the Democrats abandoned conservatism decades ago, there's only one viable political party option available.

                              ** = A rather goofy USA Census classification, since many Spanish speakers are as "white" as other Europeans. A worked with a guy from the Philippines whom was more "Hispanic" than he was "Pacific Islander" which is how our census bureau draws that line.
