Sights That Makes Me Doubt Atheism
I was actually hoping for orange rather than pea green. An orange jumpsuit would be better color-coordinated with Hal Turner's Halloween brain. The important thing, however, is that this fat prick will be going away for a while. It won't matter if he refuses to waive extradition, which is obviously intended to waste more taxpayer money and time in extradition hearings. He's going to Lieberman Land, yesirree Bob, and with Joementum.
It's perhaps fitting that no major newspapers and a very few minor ones had bothered carrying Hal Turner's arraignment yesterday on felony charges of inciting injury. I don't know why the Connecticut authorities won't go for the whole enchilada and bring him up on charges of conspiracy to commit murder. After all, the Connecticut assemblyman and state senator who were threatened are both openly gay.
Therefore, according to the existing statutes, that's a hate crime, which would carry a much stiffer penalty. Speaking as a layman, I think that Turner's own post on the matter provides them with black and white proof that Turner obviously intended (and he did use the word "intent") to murder two gay lawmakers, an OSE official and any states' attorneys and law enforcement officials who went after him. Even if they can't make the original charges stick, the DA would still have some decent space to plea bargain down to inciting injury. This way, there's not much to plea bargain down to.
But for now, I feel more at ease knowing this animal is finally off the streets for the time being. And I doubt that Turner will watch his big mouth before he shoots it off again, which means he'll be a much softer target for those who will be paying attention to any death threats this jailbird will make in the future.
