    Kudos to AG Shurtleff for not backing down in the face of mindless whining. Condemned murderers don't merit respectful silence from the AG's office as they're given their due.

    Hey ATL, why not post the much better Twitter from the AG?

    “Astonishing that no retweet whiner express outrage that Gardner shot 2 men in the face, & a cop; nor one word of empathy for their families.”

    Seems like a fair question to me.

  3. The Truth says:

    Most AG's are attention whores. I doubt this guy gives two sh1ts about the victims. He's just happy to add a death penalty conviction to his resume so that he can show he's hard on crime when he tries to run for governor.

    • Guest says:

      As long as the result was Gardner's heart getting turned into fresh ground chuck, do we really care what the AG's motives were?

    Can we just solve the problem by executing twitter? It would save more twits from tweeting. This message was brought to you by the Save the Twits Foundation, because twits need your help.

    There's a joke somewhere in here about “the twitchin',” but I can't find it…

    Hard to take any message seriously that spells “you” as “U”, but kudos to the AG for not backing down.
