It looks like I spoke too soon on the previous episode of So to Speak.
Just as I was lamenting the fact that no one had been charged with the brutal beating death of Donald Giusti in Lewiston, Maine last year, state and local police were organizing a manhunt and rounding up three suspects.
Unfortunately, this news is bitter sweet. Of the 30 or 40 attackers who contributed to the ending of Donald’s life, a minor and an adult were charged with misdemeanors; another minor was charged with manslaughter.
The adult is out on $500 bail.
At present, it doesn’t look like anyone is actually going to be given a fitting punishment for this crime.
I’ve said it before, I’ll said it again: Our speech is violence; their violence is speech. They can kill us with impunity and we aren’t even allowed to criticize them.
I’ve got all the latest.
This is EPISODE 174 of So to Speak w/ Jared Howe!
