Well Rittenhouse might have escaped justice, but these 3 fools didn't.

Jury finds 3 white men guilty of murder in the fatal shooting of Ahmaud Arbery.

A jury found three white men guilty of murder and other charges in the fatal shooting of Ahmaud Arbery early last year.

Travis McMichael, who fired the shots, was found guilty on all nine counts, including malice murder and four counts of felony murder.

His father, Gregory McMichael, was found not guilty of malice murder but guilty of felony murder and all other charges.

Their neighbor, William "Roddie" Bryan, who recorded video of the killing, was found guilty of three counts felony murder, one count aggravated assault, false imprisonment and criminal attempt to commit a felony. He was not convicted of malice murder, one count of felony murder and one count of aggravated assault.

Fines weren't in error, just the person(s) accused, the contractor should be on the hook for the full amount of every one, since they were the last ones to move the car!

Actually in UK law the yellow lines must be there and visible for them to be in force, so no offence has been committed by the car owner/user. Also there must be sings displayed "at eye level" that state any limitations on the parking restriction. I bet they weren't there either.
BUT the illegal removal of a var from the public highway is considered theft, thus the organisation that commissioned their removal has committed multiple crimes. This can get muddied if there are parking prohibition notices in place for at least a set period before the line painting and such signs must state the duration of the prohibition and the reason for the prohibition, failure to display these signs, and ensure their continued display is an offence.

Yes Minister...
Mr Kwarteng said a review would be carried out and if energy firms were found to have "failed to invest in infrastructure" then "there could be enforcement action".
He said: "In this particular instance there is a question about the infrastructure in this area being fit for purpose."
Oops
...wasn't it the government that privatised the industry?
Meanwhile...

Well Minister...
Nadhim Zahawi said: "We will not rest until we have the answers we need."
The education secretary announced "a single, national review of Arthur's death to identify where we must learn from this terrible case".
Usual sounbites
...simple answer Minister...
...cut out the bureaucratic bloat - employ & train real people to do the job & whenever certain issues crop up, use qualified professionals from outside the area for a second opinion.
Had that been in place then...
What happened in the 1987 Cleveland Child Abuse scandal?
In that year a large number of child sexual abuse allegations followed the use of a new and controversial diagnostic test by paediatricians at the Middlesbrough Hospital. A total of 121 children were removed from their parents as a result.
...many which were later discredited.

From my PoV, not surprised in the least.
Miller said she was "deeply distressed and shocked" by what she had learned about the actions of journalists and senior managers at the Sun.
I have to be careful what I say as I don't want to get hit with a lawsuit for libel.
However:
A sociopathic narcissist will be cold and callous but will also be seeking the admiration of others (and will believe that they deserve it). They will have a disdain for people and think it's okay to exploit and dispose of others in whatever way it helps them to get ahead.
After 40+ years there, & now at such a senior position, would that individual be affected in any way.
With the £68m loss reported last year, surprised that there any long serving employees left.

Now this joker has opposed a disaster relief measures for other U.S. states in the past yet he's 1st in the cue sticking his hand out this time.

Rand Paul's disaster relief letter to Biden is hypocritical.

I guess that it's just the way that modern GOP's (and other right wingers) think that there's 1 rule for them and another for everyone else. :-(

The PM blamed a "constant litany of stuff about politics and politicians" in the media for the result.
What "stuff" would that be Bozo?
