Teclast X98 3G: iambillbil Posts

The Teclast X98 3G has a 9.7-inch Retina-class screen with 2GBs of RAM and a 64-bit Bay Trail-T 3735D Intel CPU with a default speed of 1.3 GHz and a peak speed of 1.8 GHz.

Tablet wonk iambillbil begins his lengthy examination of the Teclast X98 3G [Google Translate]. It’s in progress so check back for new posts in the series.

Cecily McMillan: Jury Said Guilty

Cecily McMillan’s guilty verdict reveals our mass acceptance of police violence

McMillan was one of roughly 70 protesters arrested on March 17, 2012. She and hundreds of other activists, along with journalists like me, had gathered in Zuccotti Park to mark the six-month anniversary of the start of Occupy Wall Street. It was four months after the New York Police Department had evicted the Occupy encampment from the park in a mass of violent arrests.

When the police moved in to the park that night, in formation and with batons, to arrest a massive number of nonviolent protesters, the chaos was terrifying. Bovell claimed that McMillan elbowed him in the face as he attempted to arrest her, and McMillan and her defense team claim that Bovell grabbed her right breast from behind, causing her to instinctively react.

But the jury didn’t hear anything about the police violence that took place in Zuccotti Park that night.

This is what Liberty Plaza (aka Zuccotti Park) looked like that morning: Occupy Wall Street: March 17, 2012

See anything threatening? Anyone advocating violence?

The verdict is bullshit.
