    Imagine watching 10 years of Scooby Doo and the bad guy always escapes in the end and is never revealed. That is what reading news about trump feels like.

      Oh no he’s revealed every time and it’s the same person and he just shuffles away slowly while they stand there

    Imagine if we all could get our bond reduced to a third of the original amount just by complaining on social media.

    Wow. Fucking terrible allowance.

    Does this mean that if I insult my judge and my prosecutor, I won’t need to pay the other 2/3rds of my bond as well? Cool.

    Good job New York Appellate Division. You have proven that you bend the knee to money. You had a shot at doing this right, and you fucking blew it. I wonder if bribes were involved?

    For anyone wondering, this is the Appellate Court of NY: https://www.nycourts.gov/courts/AD1/justicesofthecourt/index.shtml

    Edit: Really interested to see the Opening Arguments podcast’s take on this.

    Well does this set a precedent for US Americans moving forward or not ?

      Turns out that judges are like a stall vendor in some movie market and you ought to haggle bond prices…

    They could have just, like, not said anything. They could have treated him like every other fuckin Joe Schmoe who goes through the courts - you know, like they’re supposed to. But they just goddamn had to give that limpdick rapist shitfuck a break.

    This is me getting slowly and inexorably radicalized by the system “working as intended”.

    Does anyone else have a feeling he won’t be able to come up with this amount either?
