Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel: A federal judge on Friday dismissed most of a civil rights lawsuit against former Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr. over an incident at Milwaukee's Mitchell airport last year. But a claim that Clarke retaliated on Facebook for Daniel Black's exercise of his First Amendment right to shake his head at Clarke survives, and is now set for trial Jan. 22.

Black and Clarke were on the same flight from Dallas to Milwaukee on Jan. 15, 2017. Black saw Clarke wearing Dallas Cowboys gear and asked if he was David Clarke. Clarke said he was, and Black shook his head and walked away to his seat in coach.

When the plane landed in Milwaukee, Black was greeted by six sheriff's deputies who had been directed by Clarke to take Black aside and question him. They then escorted him from the airport. ...

[T]he judge said a jury should decide whether Clarke's reaction on Facebook was the kind of threat or intimidation that amounted to retaliation against Black. One post read, "Cheer up, snowflake . . . if Sheriff Clarke were to really harass you, you wouldn't be around to whine about it."

Are you not aware of the difference between a civil suit and a criminal prosecution, seriously?

Strange I usually do notice when it's a lawsuit.

I apparently missed it this time.

Personally I think killing someone by dehydration over many days by cutting off their water is far worse than any murders done in a passionate rage.
