5 Sun Herald attorneys from Jones Walker working with Aaron Broussard and pals to shut Slabbed down.
Naw folks, the Sun Herald only cares about the First Amendment and public records when it is their own ox being gored.
Speaking of the Goatherders, I have a dynamite update coming as the gang has made some stunning admissions in Canadian court filings.
That right folks, Stacey Pickering, whose office investigated Mississippi DMR for over a year and let Bill Walker and Company go scott free after DMR was looted out over one million dollars fixing Bill Walker’s foundation’s boat fleet before lowering the boom on a few low level employees that may have filched $5,000 or so padding their travel says he is interested in running for the US Senate. God help us all.
My instincts are to vote for the McDaniels guy no matter who runs for the seat on the Republican side.
Kicking John Mark Stahl in the cojones after arresting him and then ordering the dashboard video of the incident destroyed is what finally did Sheriff Byrd in. Click the pic to score the 19 page plea agreement and factual basis. Sentencing for soon to be former Sheriff Byrd is scheduled for December 10th in Mobile.

IS THE GOVERNMENT TRYING TO SAVE US FROM OURSELVES?
George Orwell’s novel 1984 paints a disturbing scenario where one can be accused of a crime, arrested and prosecuted for his or her thoughts.
“The thought police would get him just the same. He had committed… the essential crime that contained all others in itself. Thought crime they called it… sooner or later they were bound to get you.”
The Orwell scenario comes to mind when digesting a recent ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court upholding a federal law that allows the indefinite civil commitment of federal prisoners who have completed their sentences, but are deemed “sexually dangerous.” This travesty of justice is based on the thought that a crime might be committed in the future
Now if you think the only dissenters expressing concerns over such a draconian ruling are bleeding heart liberals, think again. Add to that number the likes of Rush Limbaugh, and the two most conservative members of the Supreme Court, Justices Scalia and Thomas. The majority of the court cited that congress could pass such laws because it has “enumerated powers,” then conveniently failed to list any such powers or constitutional authority. Hogwash, said Justice Thomas. He pointed out that offenses allowing indefinite jail time need not even be a sex crime. Someone serving time for mail fraud or tax evasion could be declared “dangerous” if a prosecutor feels he or she might have a “tendency” to commit further crimes, even if the sentence was not for a criminal conviction.
Sex crimes, violent crimes, property crimes, drug crimes – whatever the circumstances of the offense, one would think that when the sentence is done, it’s done. If there is a terrible crime involved, then the courts should hand out longer sentences.
