I imagine this would be a basis for a change of judge motion on the basis of bias for anyone charged with the same crime in this court in the future.
Maybe shes not the most polite person in the world, but it is a crime now to say something to somebody that they dont like? She didnt threaten them, she said this is America speak English. I wouldve voted not guilty.
Would you believe that she is being charged with “invading their space”?!?!?
Since when is there “private space” inside a cotton-pickin’ SUPERMARKET?!?!?
What if she had yelled at them in Serbo-Croatian? Just wondering.
Not long ago two women in a laundrymat were harassing my wife in Spanish. On and on they went.
What they didn’t know is my wife is fluent in Spanish.
Wonder what racist judge would take on her case?
She’s clearly guilty of the crime of free speech.
Throw her in the camps.
On a previous thread, it was mentioned that Jimmy Kimmel mocked Melania Trump for having a foreign accent. Couldn’t this be construed as: “misdemeanor racial-motivated harassment”.
Liberals should not be allowed to have it both ways!
Facing criminal charges to telling these people they should be speaking English? How stupid are these people in Rifle?
This never ending conga-line of non-English speaking foreign nationals/illegals the government has forced upon our country are costing tax payers 10 of millions, simply due to the fact these people do not speak or even bother to learn English.
They apparently don’t teach constitutional law at Western Michigan University’s Cooley law school.
For those interested in his alma mater:
“Why pick on Cooley? There are a lot of terrible law schools out there, certainly. Cooley Law, however, has secured a deserved reputation as the worst of the worst, churning out scores of the most uncompetitive graduates into an extremely competitive profession that has nowhere near the ability to absorb them all. Cost of education is extremely high relative to expected salaries. Many graduates struggle to even pass the bar. “
I'm gonna guess ole Judge Pototsky is just disappointed that the citizens of SOLID RED Garfield County, CO are going to have a chance to find the accused NOT GUILTY. Who the hell is this woman to demand her right to a fair trail by a jury of her peers? Admit your crime and accept your punishment, err "diversion"!
Maybe they should confiscate the Rifle.....
I know how the Founding Fathers would have taken care of this and the “judge.”
It’s a good thing she wasn’t a store clerk at a vape store; she would have just been fired.
Are there really people out there who are that easily triggered? There are guest ranches out here where Mexican tourists stay and spend money in our businesses while they are here-so many of us speak Spanish as a 2nd language, no matter what our ethnicity. We would just have ignored the ranting woman and gone on about our bisiness- people have the right to be rude if they choose...
What race is a Spanish speaker?
Somebody tell the judge that the first amendment was not created to protect acceptable speech.
