3. What prison food? The judge released him after his hearing yesterday.

None of these people will ever go to prison.

11. Sure about that?

A bunch of them are still cooling their heels in custody awaiting trial. Judges don't hand that out like candy.

13. That's what is being reported.

Thomas was arrested Wednesday in Birmingham, where he had traveled for work, according to Alabama media reports. He was later released, but with special conditions.

Hadn't he been enjoying 'his country', just the way he wanted it, for the previous four years?

12. He wants his racist, patriarchal country back....

You know, when women were chattel and brown people were owned like livestock. Back when people turned out for lynchings like it was some GD picnic.
