Bruno Update II--L.A.'s Dopest Attorney On the Case

Bruno Bruhwhiler, from the LA branch of the kooks, has an update on his terrorist threat trial:

We have some EXCELLENT NEWS to share!!! One of WeAreChangeLA’s most active and committed members, Laurie Pershall, recommended Harvard Law School graduate Allison Margolin, daughter of famed Bruce Margolin- author of the California Medical Marijuana Laws. Bruno met with Allison and her team and has retained her services. Allison comes from a family of progressive lawyers. She is ready to take this case through trial if necessary. She’s a winner and we are thrilled to have her.


Allison has her own blog here (last updated in 2007), where she bills herself as "LA's Dopest Attorney". It appears evident that she mostly handles pot possession cases.

On the financial front, it certainly appears that Bruno's "involuntary" facial expressions will turn out to be quite expensive:

Thank you for all of your support and for every financial contribution. Every dollar counts! At this point we do not have the donations needed to go to trial. All that has been Chipped In up to date has gone to retain attorneys and to pay filing fees and some of the bail. So far we have spent $19,200 plus, ($9,500 for the bail bonds [non-refundable], $500 for the continuance lawyer, $1,200 for the last Lawyer who didn’t work out, $7,500 to retain the new Defense Attorney, Allison Margolin, for pre trial, and $500 in filing fees and notary charges as well as the several hundred dollars that CHIP IN has taken for their cut). You all have donated over $11 Thousand Dollars through the “CHIP IN”!!! THANK YOU!!! We are still in the red and will need the projected $18,000 plus on the “CHIP IN” if we can avoid trial. If we go to trial the total costs to Free Bruno will be over $27 Thousand dollars.

I love the fact that these troofers are being parted from their money, like the fools they are.

Please, please, please keep adding on more legal bills.

Prediction.

The troofers will spend a small fortune on Bruno Bruhwhiler's defense; nevertheless, Bruno will ultimately spend time in the slammer, where he'll become a knob ornament for a 300 lb convicted bank robber and white supremacist named Johannes.

"...More gay porn from GayTardBill."

Everything is gay porn to a demented fudge packer like Brian Good.

After all, when all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail.

GayTardBill thinks he can shut me up by insulting Brian Good.

GayTardBill is a rather dull-witted sot who long ago ceased to be worth his salt.

I have to hand it to the truthets; they fuck everything up.

Some idiot makes faces in court, and it costs them tens of thousands.

Comedy gold.

The dass derrière degenerate dissembles, "...GayTardBill thinks he can shut me up by insulting Brian Good."

Brian, the third person prevarication is wearing thin.

Do you honestly believe you're fooling anyone, psychopath--with the exception of yourself, of course?

$9500 for the bail bond? So either bail was set at a very high amount or the bondsman charged a premium price. Either way, someone somewhere thinks Ol Bruno is a flight risk .

Yeah really. It never occurs to anybody in this group that this is all Bruno's own stupid fault.

I disagree. Come on, all he did was heckle a judge, and then spew some "sovereign" bullshit when they tried to arrest him. And in California.

This is another Jon Gold case; something promoted by the Twoofkiddies as political oppression with worldwide consequences, but in reality one of a hundred public misbehavior cases.

And about that "terrorist charge":

To clarify the "Terrorist Threat" charge that Bruno is facing: The California Penal Code is 422 and is a charge of "Terrorist Treat". (From 9-11Blogger)

Here's California Penal Code Section 422.

Apparently Bruno is facing is one of those state-level, $10,000 bail, one year in county prison type of terrorist charges, for breaking a law that doesn't have the word "terrorist" in it anywhere.

I'm not a lawyer and I could be uninformed about this, but could someone explain to me how the afore-linked law constitutes a "terror charge"?

First of all, I'd consider the source.

911flogger is hardly authoritative--but you know that.

Titerope, I'd have to see this thing covered by some real media before being able to say anything. On the one hand, you're probably right. On the other, they say the *bond* (not the bail) was nearly $10 K, implying a much higher bail if they happen to be telling the truth and not just stealing money from their fellow idiots.

 
At 06 August, 2010 11:20, Blogger GuitarBill said...

I just checked out what they mean by "bond" in California (the amount varies from state-to-state).

A "bond" is 10% of the total bail.

You do the math.

Yeah, but it's all we've got to go on. There isn't going to be any real media coverage of this case, and the public case information isn't available online that I can find. (I did find some case numbers, if anybody wants those.)

they say the *bond* (not the bail) was nearly $10 K, implying a much higher bail

This WAC page says the total bail was $165,000. So I think you're right.

I also liked this part:

We need $18,000 if we can avoid trial. If we go to trial the total costs will be over $27 Thousand dollars.

Allison Margolin is ready to take this case through trial.


Well, duh.

One more in a series of "I support the Fascists-because they're Our Fascists" malarkey from the Debunker Cult! Trite the DopeyFuck offers:"...never occurs to anybody...that this all Bruno's own stupid fault"!! Followed a half hour later by:"Come on,all he did was heckle a judge,and then spew some 'sovereign' bullshit...this is terrorism?".So which is it,dumbass? Is this malicious prosecution or a guy getting his come-uppance for being on the "wrong" side of an issue?

It's both.

Is this malicious prosecution or a guy getting his come-uppance for being on the "wrong" side of an issue?

It's neither.
