Don’t think the system is going to let Maye off easily, but I hope that he wins his freedom.

I’ve fired a shot in self-defense. I didn’t kill anybody, but the burden is partly mine because I could have killed someone. If you own a firearm and have resolved to defend yourself and your family, you know there is a risk of making a mistake. The cops should have been trained to minimize this risk. The burden was on them to guard themselves and innocent others. They were the ones who chose to make a night raid on a home with a child present.

I believe the state shouldn’t be doing these no-knock raids over drugs.

Maybe a style change is in order. Try using all caps, or lots of exclamation points.

They say there is more truth in comedy than tragedy. Since we are talking about Maye’s ultimate demise, you might read a few of the last words of the condemned. Good for a guffaw or two.

I would have been surrounded by dead Nazis until they put an end to me…in fact, I am often accused of hyperbole when speaking to the rate at which liberty is disappearing in the U.S. and just how ‘Gestapo-like’ American LE tactics have become. I believe we are living in a modern police state but I don’t have to call a chatroom full of like-minded persons d*$# suckers to express it.

I get angry and frustrated, and cynically leavened by news like this. But why use that particular metaphor to refer to the optimism of individuals who are hopeful, happy, and optimistic about seeing justice done for Mr. Maye?

That is the same denial the Germans living downwind of the camps suffered from. Those Germans were cautiously optimistic that the trains passing by were not filled with people. Turns out they were only right half the time.

The man has been on death row for most of his adult life. What can be more vulgar than that? (Other than having to go to trial again and face the possibility of getting his old cell back.)

It proves that his parents did not care about him. He knows this and reacts by spewing hate. I have spent time in the Muskogee County (GA) jail three different times, Anderson County (SC) twice, Delaware County (NY) twice and various other jails singular occasions. “Prattle”, you say. Sure, don’t reply to the charge, just attack the messenger. Your intellect is difficient, it seems, measuring on a par with most of the cops I have known. I was one of those, too, with the Connecticut State Police for three years. From filth comes filth is almost an axiom.

@ k9k

Why so over the top vulgar out of the blue in the middle of a sensible and EMOTIONAL thread? How bout “Don’t count your chickens,” or “don’t celebrate prematurely,” or “I think we should be cautiously optimistic…”

I know it gets people to respond to your posts, but it’s just so cheap. I usually agree with you when I bother to read your entries, but mostly I see your moniker and roll on. Peace.

I think that it would be excellent for the prosecutor to seek the death penalty for each and every person associated with bringing these charges in the first place even if it would mean himself. These charges amount to willful attempted murder – of a known innocent man aggravated by color of law. Way back in 1963 I thought that Gov. PipSqueek of Alabama should have resigned and pled guilty as accessory to willful murder after Birmingham Sunday. That he got shot (and survived) in a Md parking lot was too little too late. Anyone still believing in earthly government, who pays taxes and votes is an accessory as well.

Why are we celebrating? Because government DOES create jobs! Think about all the jobs the cops have given us. The judges, jurors, clerks, lawyers, paralegals, journalists, and of course the jailers have all been busy seeing that justice is served. Make sure you folks bring your cookbooks to the party. I recommend To Serve Man.
