Bit of a funny story looking at it now. 21:09 < Joe> Jokeefe see.s 21:10 < Joe> Seems to be asleel 21:10 < Joe> We have not ided yet 21:10 < malt> oh neat 21:13 < Joe> I have been unusually busy again this week. Sorry for last Sunday but I will be happy to explain this week. 21:14 < srevilak> No worries. Stuff happens, and you have a lot on your plate 21:14 < Joe> Joseph Onoroski, Lowell 21:15 < Joe> I do but so do us all. How can I ask anything of anyone else if I am not willing to explain myself. You fine gentlemen take the time to do the video and you deserve to know. 21:16 < Joe> Besides, it's a good story at this point. 21:18 < Joe> Since I don't have much to add to this meeting, shall we adjourn? 21:18 < Joe> O wait, there is one thing to discuss 21:20 < malt> what's taht? 21:22 < Joe> The new life sentence law being pushed in ma. Looking for it now 21:23 < Joe> https://www.boston25news.com/news/new-bill-abolishes-life-no-parole-sentences-massachusetts/X477WYTENJCUNABG7Z3KTJGB4E/ 21:25 < Joe> Kind of a bombshell. 21:25 <@jokeefe> ahoy 21:25 < srevilak> Hi jokeefe 21:27 < Joe> Ahoy 21:27 < malt> well howdy 21:27 <@jokeefe> guess the issue comes down to whether you think a murder can be redeemed. if you don’t then you want to look them away forever. if you do, then you support parole 21:29 < malt> prisons are not rehabilitative 21:30 < Joe> I support restorative justice. Though how do you tell that to the families. I agree that incarceration is pure punishment and does not rehab anyone. 21:30 <@jokeefe> This thread was helpful https://twitter.com/ScottHech/status/1447596444886523911 21:31 < Joe> Usually they come out as part of a gang or as a better crook. 21:32 < malt> there was a longitudinal study that broadly supported the fact that incarceration is not effective 21:32 <@jokeefe> that thread points that out 21:34 < malt> oh pfft, this is the exact thread i learned this fact from 21:34 <@jokeefe> Is https://etherpad.pp-international.net/p/MAPPImmigrationPlank ok? 21:34 < Joe> That's a good thread but the challenge comes with the worse crimes. Ie murder, rape, etc 21:34 < malt> aye 21:35 <@jokeefe> I feel the first paragraph needs more to it, but am not what more ot add? 21:36 < Joe> Hows that? 21:37 < malt> linking in white supremacy to anti immigration 21:37 < malt> "without most of those country's problems." is not a helpful contribution 21:39 < Joe> Hmmm 21:40 < malt> i only recently saw arrested development 21:40 < malt> so stew jokes are still a novel concept, to me 21:42 < malt> i gotta dip, baby just threw up 21:43 <@jokeefe> good luck 21:44 < Joe> How are you Jokeefe? 21:45 <@jokeefe> tired 21:45 <@jokeefe> you? 21:46 <@jokeefe> are you all good for recording on Sunday? 21:47 < Joe> Beaten like a red-headed step child by a 7 year old. Dog has a broken leg and my house burnt down. My life is a country song, lol 21:47 <@jokeefe> at least you are upbeat 21:47 < Joe> I am, sorry for last week. 21:47 <@jokeefe> no worries. breaks are good 21:48 < Joe> Like a proper irish gentleman, I can do nothing but laugh at what God desires to give me this week. 21:48 < Joe> Sometimes up, sometimes down. Always memorable. 21:50 <@jokeefe> So, this Sunday good for a pirate news recording? 21:50 < Joe> I will give you the full rundown on Sunday. Btw. Can you make it to Lowell this weekend? 21:50 < srevilak> I'll be available on Sun 21:52 < Joe> I can show you the space I have to make a recording studio.
