In case you haven’t noticed, I withheld remarks on that trial in Chicago, the one where I already forgot the name of the convicted actor. I’m sure you know the one. He was the one who claimed he went out at 2 in the morning for eggs.
Unlike others like Joe and what’s his name…you know the one who claimed the 2 policeman were behaving badly before he was aware of the facts.
At any rate, I did wait until the trial was over, tempting as it was to make my opinion known. Indeed, because of how obvious it all was, it surprised me as to just why it took three years to unfold.
It would seem Joe didn’t want to wait that long. I don’t know when he said it, but it would seem Joe already had the ghost assailant convicted. In essence he aided the actor in his crime. If he made the remark after occupation of the oval office, I would guess that would make him “aider in chief.”
However, he had plenty of company. I would suppose that all the mainstream anchors had the ghost villains convicted as well.
Then, when the MAGA hat wearing spector could not be located, it would seem it was just time to forget it. To be sure, the prosecutor decided to drop any charges, almost before she realized there were any. It would appear she wanted to help the actor too.
After all, as they say in the National Basketball Association, “no harm, no foul.” It would seem she decided to overlook the resources used. It would seem she wanted to overlook the implications to Trump supporters. Finally, what of the harm to the real victims, those that are actually assaulted.
Then, there is no skin off their noses. Joe never lost a thing. No one has issued any apologies, certainly not the actor. Why should any of them. No one was hurt. Who would they apologize to? What would be the point?
My personal opinion, at the very least, the actor should be made to understand that what he did was wrong. That just might happen. On the other hand, Joe will never suffer for his outburst, regardless of the damage it did or caused.
So it is, he can aid and abet at will. He’ll not ever pay for it.
Side note. It’s not that I have a bad memory. It just is that character wants to be noticed. It is a good reason for all to forget him, quickly, as I have. In no way will I mention him again and certainly not his name. Maybe that would be the most effective punishment for him. He’ll be an actor without a role, or is that roll. Anyway, you get the point.
