Karl Manke’s license and the license of his shop, Karl Manke Main St. Barber & Beauty Shop, have been “summarily suspended,” said David Harns, communications director for the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs. The documents confirming the suspension were sent to the barber and his attorney.
Harns said he was unable to provide further comment on the pending case.
Separately, Manke faces “$1,000 and 1 year in jail per haircut” under a Department of Health and Human Services order, said Manke’s lawyer David Kallman.
Meanwhile, convicted prisoners are being released into public. This is a sick game the Democrats are playing.
Lesbian Nasty Nessel isn’t playing around anymore and has cinched up her strapon.
Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel is warning protesters ahead of Thursday’s demonstrations at and around the Capitol that “there are going to be changes” from the way enforcement was handled at an April 30 protest.
The Attorney General’s office is prepared to prosecute actions that may not have received the same treatment during the April 30 protest, Nessel said. Among the potential violations her office will address are the brandishing of weapons, trespassing into the legislative chambers, restricting and obstructing police officers, disorderly conduct and disturbing the peace of ordinance violations.
Brandishing a weapon usually involves the possession of an openly carried firearm with the intent “to create fear in another person,” Nessel’s office said in a statement.
That’s the definition? Um, not so says AG Jennifer M. Granholm Opinion #7101.
In the absence of any reported Michigan appellate court decisions defining “brandishing,” it is appropriate to rely upon dictionary definitions. People v Denio, 454 Mich 691, 699; 564 NW2d 13 (1997). According to The American Heritage Dictionary, Second College Edition (1982), at p 204, the term brandishing is defined as: “1. To wave or flourish menacingly, as a weapon. 2. To display ostentatiously. –n. A menacing or defiant wave or flourish.” This definition comports with the meaning ascribed to this term by courts of other jurisdictions. For example, in United States v Moerman, 233 F3d 379, 380 (CA 6, 2000), the court recognized that in federal sentencing guidelines, “brandishing” a weapon is defined to mean “that the weapon was pointed or waved about, or displayed in a threatening manner.”
Applying these definitions to your question, it is clear that a reserve police officer, regardless whether he or she qualifies as a “peace officer,” when carrying a handgun in a holster in plain view, is not waving or displaying the firearm in a threatening manner. Thus, such conduct does not constitute brandishing a firearm in violation of section 234e of the Michigan Penal Code.
Thanks for playing, Dana, try again.
Nessel is working in collaboration with the Michigan State Police and Ingham County Prosecutor Carol Siemon to ensure violations are addressed.
“While our desire is to interfere as little as possible in demonstrations, we will not allow unlawful, threatening or intimidating behavior,” Michigan State Police Col. Joe Gasper said in a statement. “Based on safety concerns expressed following previous demonstrations [the Democrats], attendees can expect to see an increased MSP presence on Thursday.”
Good Lord, how Joe Gasper can sleep at night is beyond my comprehension. Just following orders, guys, it’s not that I condone Whitmer and Nessel destroying your livelihoods but, I got that public sector union government pension to think about. What a disgrace.
Wait a minute? What’s that I hear? Oh… the virtue sniveling intensifies.
So, at least we’ve got that going for us. 🤦🏼♂️
