Motes For Almost Friday

Consequences for your actions: A white Miami man who pointed a gun at a Black homeowner and hurled a racial slur, has pleaded guilty, accepted probation and will have to complete the usual array of conditions, such as mental-health counseling, substance abuse treatment and staying away from the victim. It was also revealed he had for years been posing as a former police SWAT leader and Navy SEAL, donning a bogus military uniform, bragging about his supposed medals for valor, even getting free drinks. The court also ordered he be banned from pretending to be a military or police man. Under Florida’s “hate-crime” law, his actions could have received the penalties up to 15 years in prison. But, probation. Even this guy’s daughter said “He’s a narcissist,” she said. “He just has to be the center of attention.” Probation.

Justice delayed: A 101-year-old former concentration camp guard was convicted by a German court on Tuesday of being an accessory to more than 3,500 murders and sentenced to five years in prison, although it was not clear whether he would ever serve time. The man, who has been widely described in the German media as the oldest person ever to be tried on Nazi-era charges, worked as an SS guard at the Sachsenhausen concentration camp, north of Berlin, from 1942 to 1945. He denied working at the camp, and prosecutors were unable to directly link him to the deaths of the prisoners. There is no time limit on these crimes.

Shades of Robert Blake: Mexican singer Yrma Lydya, 21, was reportedly shot to death by her ancient husband, Jesus Hernandez Alocer, 79, in a Japanese restaurant Thursday. Lydya was reportedly shot three times, twice in the chest and once in the face by her lawyer-husband, the outlet continued. She had allegedly been trying to divorce Alocer for months. After the killing, Alocer reportedly attempted to bribe the police into letting him go. Alocer is maintaining his innocence, despite a police officer being present at the restaurant at the time of the killing. When I first saw this article, I thought it said, “by accident”. But with “Two in the chest, one in the head,” I realized it wasn’t .

If you don’t like it, move: Chicago’s richest man, Ken Griffin, a hedge fund billionaire worth nearly $29 billion, has decided to move to Florida. And he’s taking his company, Citadel Securities, a company valued at around $22 billion, with him. While not stated in a letter to employees, Citadel officials reportedly said crime was a critical factor in the decision to move.

They have a word for this: Cassidy Hutchinson on Tuesday testified that Trump was aware January 6 rally attendees had weapons and were wearing body armor. She also claimed that Trump lunged at a Secret Service Agent as he shouted demands. The Secret Service denied the report and the agents are ready and willing to testify. So she is “testifying” to things that are not true. The word we’re looking for is : per·ju·ry /ˈpərj(ə)rē/   noun/. the offense of willfully telling an untruth in a court after having taken an oath or affirmation.
