Do you think AG Barr should be arrested and jailed because he needs a holiday from politics/Trump administration?

He appears to be a little fatigued;  somewhat stressed out.

    I think William should have to lose his last name.  In other words, William should be DIS-BARRED.

    Cheers!

    Mr Barr may come to realize what so many other former Trump toadies have discovered: that serving Trump brings inevitable personal and professional disgrace. Everyone ends up under the bus eventually. A number of those loyalists may face prosecution. 

    Sarah Sanders and Kellyann Conway should hope Trump reigns forever, as they each will become virtually unemployable. Ask Sean Spicer. This post was edited by Don Barzini at May 9, 2019 12:47 AM MDT

    The guy that makes Irn Bru is a hero.

    Why not just try and convict the guy right here on AM? We're qualified and have all the facts beyond all reasonable doubt, don't we?

    Well, if you want to we can; but where will we find a group of people that think he is guilty---there are too many Trump supporters on here for him to get a fair trial.

    In a sense, I gotta go with Stu here.

    There aren’t enough members on this site who could make a cogent argument for toilet paper, much less a case like this.

    Hard to refute your logic.

    I do not think he is guilty.  I KNOW HE IS.

    He could simply plead 'guilty as charged' to whatever he is charged with in order to quickly get his jail holiday.

    Please re-read my post above. Do you honestly believe that you are qualified and in possession of sufficient facts and information to take on the responsibility of declaring someone guilty beyond all reasonable doubt and sending that person to prison? If your answer is yes, I submit that you're delusional. If the answer is no, then you really had no business posting this question other than, perhaps, that anyone can post anything because they can.

    Really? Spending any amount of time, even a day, in any jail, prison, or detention setting entails, first and foremost, the complete loss of personal liberty. What part of that is not bad?

    Yes there is a down side but sometimes a change is as good as a rest. Chance for him to meet interesting people and make new friends.

    Why would you wish to prescribe something like that for anyone, especially someone you don't even know? Not the mention the propriety - or lack thereof.

    There is nothing really to say I wished he goes to jail -anyway that is not what I meant to imply.

    Be careful what you wish for. I'm fairly certain that you wouldn't want to live in a police state. I know I wouldn't.

    With 2 million people in jail at any given time in USA might give the impression that a police state already exists.

    If you believe that, then I don't think you know what a police state is. It's a totalitarian state controlled by a political police force. The US is not and never has been such a thing. Not sure where you got 2 million, whether it's a real number or you just made it up, but don't you think that people in prison are there for a reason? You want convicted criminals, especially violent ones, living in your community? I certainly don't want them in mine. I find myself wondering how much thought you actually put into this whole question, blithely wishing that somebody you don't even know and who, I'm fairly certain, has done you no harm, should go to jail.

    Maybe mugging is passed now if they are onto something more safer and profitable

    Absolutely! The thing is how long is it going to take before someone physically arrests him and puts him in the jail in the basement.
