I saw my neighbor beat his wife

I saw my neighbor beat his wife and kids. He literally knocked their teeth out.
Iím pretty sure he is going to move away in a week or two so there is no reason for me to call the cops.
He will be out of my hair.

Impeach Now.

1. Call the cops! Being "pretty sure he is going to move away in a week or two"

does not absolve you of the responsibility of reporting a crime and possibly even saving the wife's life! Those guys don't stop.

3. I'm guessing this is sarcasm to make a point, rather than you really ignoring the situation...

If so, I'd add the emoticon.

25. I fail to find any humor or satire or metaphor or analogy in this.

I find belittling domestic abuse to be as offensive as it gets.

He needs to be held accountable.
He'll do it again.

Will Trump be held accountable? Will the Republican Senate carry on Trumpís legacy?

19. I remember years ago I had a couple that were friend over to play cards. In the middle of playing

apparently he did not like the card she played and slapped her in the face. I said I don't know what the hell goes on in your house, but I don't put up with that shit in mine. He apologized, but needless to say about 5 years later they were divorced and he moved on to another woman, who ended up filing aggravated assult charges against him and he was arrested. Tigers don't change their stripes.

21. What about the HOA? Isn't he the head and won't they side with him?

Or is he the police chief? You can get away with a lot when youíre the police chief.

23. Of course, your should call the police

And when they arrive on the scene, before arresting him, they'll do a quick investigation to determine if there's probable cause to arrest him. If there is, they'll take him into custody and charge him with assault and he'll be arraigned within 24 hours, whereupon he'll have an opportunity to post bail pending trial.

Thereafter, the district attorney will take time to review the evidence and assess whether there's enough evidence to bind him over to a grand jury and, if so, on what charges, and how the case will be presented.

Among other things, the DA will interview witnesses (including you) to determine if they're credible, review medical records, etc. If they think the case may be a little shaky (for example, if they find out your eyesight is so bad you couldn't possibly have seen what you say you saw, or another eyewitness has a history of accusing people of crimes they didn't commit, or his wife changed her mind and doesn't want to testify), they may decide to charge him with a lesser included offense that's easier to prove in court, offer to allow him to plead to a lesser offense or, if the case is too weak to hold up in court, decide not to proceed at all.

In other words, a process will be followed that, although it won't provide immediate gratification, it will help to ensure that justice is done.

Nice analogy but you have your comparables .mixed up. The police have already been called on Trump. Now Congress is working through the process of holding him accountable, just like the DA would in your analogy.

So, if you decide not to call the cops when your neighbor beats up his wife that's on you ...it has nothing at all to do with how Congress is handling impeachment

But nice try anyway.

29. Donald Trump is an unindicted co-conspirator in a felony,

 

Donald Trump, according to 900 prosecutors and judges is guilty of obstruction of justice. If Donald Trump were not president he would be indicted for crimes. Donald Trump has violated the emoluments clause of the Constitution, he is profiting from being president he never put his businesses in a blind trust.

On top of those crimes, impeachment doesn't require a crime be committed. Trump is also guilty of abuse of power is guilty of not enforcing the laws of the land.

It won't do a darn bit of good if Congress holds Trump accountable after the election. Trump is above the law while he is president, calling the police means nothing, impeachment is the only way to hold Trump accountable until after he is removed from office.

30. Having a traitor installed as A.G.

 

is a game changer. Barr hasn't released the FBI counterintelligence investigation to Congress, he is holding his own investigation and sure as shit he is going to come up with a bs fairy tale that blames the FBI and Democrats for carrying out a witch hunt against Trump. Barr will put Hillary on the 2020 ballot.

That will be the narrative that the complicit M$M will push, at least with an impeachment inquiry we would have a chance to control the narrative.

prosecuted family violence is.
