To all Jerry Falwell wannabees, swinging is not for everyone, some guys tend to get upset if they see their wives having too much fun.

Shit. I really wanted to see this group of assholes thrown in the pokey.

Hate that this could affect the trial.

Who could have predicted that this guy would be unstable?

Yes, if the plotters get the right MI judge, they’ll get off because they were setup by the FBI, and anyway, they were just joking around.

Did anything decent happen this week ? Some folks in Tennessee get vaxxed? A billionaire finally pay some taxes ? An insurrectionist sentenced to 20 years in prison for assaulting a capitol guard ?
Probably not…

Jeeze, it’s hard to know who the good guys (and gals) are anymore… Never mind, who in their right mind has ever trusted the F.B.I.? Might be a good time to clean up their image by changing the name of their headquarters in DC…

Yes, SLM.
And maybe she was just self-identifying as polyamorous.

And…morality aside…why in the hell would an FBI dude…who must need to pass security clearances with regular updates…go to a Swinger’s Club if he is prone to ANY kind of jealousy.

Sheer stupidity.

I am definitely not an attorney, much less a prosecutor, but if I were, and that defense attorney tried to throw down on the “the cops and fed agents are assholes so let my morons free” rap, I would have thrown it right back at 'em and said, well now, just goes to show you how much more dangerous that makes the defendants in this attempted murder of a sitting Governor. So sit down and STFU.

Law schools across the land are so glad I decided not to go down the road to a law degree… :rofl:

The law on entrapment is very good for prosecutors, John deLorean notwithstanding.

I remember reading Efrem Zimbalist Jr’s obituary which interested me since I grew up watching the FBI show on Sunday evenings.
His politics were conservative plus he was a pal and supporter of Reagan.
It kind of explains why J. Edgar Hoover had control over the shows scripts. “More crazed hippies and rougher cops dammit!”

It’s never too late. If Ted Cruz could become a lawyer, anyone could.

No better reason I can think of to not become a lawyer, the fine example of @txlawyer notwithstanding.
