    First amendment rights to threats of violence. Interesting the employer does DOD work. Didn't see that in the information about Sain on their website - that was scrubbed the first day. He's 42 and the bio said he had 25 years of experience. He had joined the army out of high school so we decided they were counting that.

    Why would the trial be in El Paso Co? I'm getting an image of the Denver Co judge and DA rolling their eyes or laughing if the defense asks. The case hasn't gotten all that much attention here. I don't know if he hired his own lawyer, doesn't seem real smart. Friday should be interesting.

        in Aurora and her workplace is the Capitol, that may be part of the determination. That is who investigated and arrested him, where he was held and had a bail hearing. Can't imagine they don't have the jurisdiction nailed, it would have to involve a request for change of venue.

      Although the crime occurred in Denver county - so you may be right.

            This has so much stupid all over it, you really have to wonder if mental competence could end up being part of his defense.  ;)
