The feminist types have no appeal for me.
I think that women who are happy being women and those that love men and do not wish to enter into a competition with men are going to be much happier people.
. I remember…..you saying something to the effect of "guys love other guys" (not necessarily romantic) and that struck me. There is something very attractive about male bonding.
You always very interesting things to say about the homo vs. hetero dynamic.
As soft as I may be at times, I can't deal with being manipulated. It's a complete waste of energy. If Sophie and I can be cool and chat about German cinema and scary movies, eg., "Carnival of Souls", then great that's really why I'm here. But I'm not going in for the other stuff. And sock puppets are a by-product of paranoia.
Mr. Leone was repeatedly beaten by out-of-control State Troopers before and after he was handcuffed and also after he was hog tied. Numerous non-authorized maneuvers were used against Mr. Leone by the arresting Officers including the punching in his face with a closed fist by one of the Troopers.
According to testimony during the federal civil trial in Wilkes-Barre, Robert Leone was not only beaten by Pa. state troopers but the alleged abuse continued in the lockup and even in the hospital. All of this, following a low-speed chase in Bradford County on March 8, 2010, when Leone was 31-years-old and was arrested on numerous charges.Now, a federal jury has found that state troopers did not use of excessive force in Leone's arrest, WNEP reports:"Despite police dash cam video that shows a scuffle and his booking photo, jurors found state police officers did not violate Leone's rights," the station reported.In closing arguments, Deputy State Attorney General Abbegael Giunta told jurors. "all Leone had to do was stop – stop the car, stop resisting arrest, stop spitting, stop kicking, stop fighting," WNEP wrote.The five officers named in the lawsuit were Trooper Andrew Burian, Trooper Matthew Knock, Trooper Thad Warnick, Trooper Scott Refner and Corporal Roger Stipcak.The officers had their troop commander read this statement:"We're very grateful that the jury took the time today to consider all evidence put before them. And we're very happy at the verdict they came out with based upon the facts of the incident," said Capt. James Degnan, Troop P Commander.Meanwhile, Leone's legal team expressed disappointment, according to WNEP:In closing arguments Monday morning, Leone's defense lawyer Trent Echard told jurors, "Robert Leone served two years in jail, but state troopers gave him a life sentence of post-traumatic stress disorder and brain injuries."Two years ago, Leone was convicted in criminal court of assault, fleeing, and resisting arrest.
