[Cat] done
[Haengemie] Thank you, Cat
[Haengemie] Shadowfire, you have 90 seconds to speak.
[Shadowfire] Ladies and gentleman, I apologize for keeping you from your hunts.
[Shadowfire] Cat apparently is not aware of the term, "Freedom of speech"
[Shadowfire] If she had but asked me not to utilize profane language I would have refrained from using it.
[Shadowfire] Unfortunately, I had been curse bombed for no reason and was in a very bad mood when she cursed me. I apologized to her and that apology still stands.
[Shadowfire] I apologized to her and that apology still stands.
[Shadowfire] I feel that an exile's right to free speech should not be abridged by law, if you disagree feel free to vote guilty
[Shadowfire] Thankyou, ladies and gentleman of the jury; for your time and patience.
[Haengemie] 10 seconds remaining, Please finish up, or say "done"...
[Shadowfire] I ask that you be lenient.
[Shadowfire] Thankyou once more.
[Shadowfire] done
[Haengemie] Thank you, Shadowfire
[Haengemie] Cat, you have 120 seconds to speak.
[Cat] Where shadowfire said and I replied:
[Cat] 9/30/99 11:10:20p Shadowfire says, "holt fuck"
[Cat] 9/30/99 11:10:23p Shadowfire says, "holy fuck"
[Cat] 9/30/99 11:10:29p You gave bad karma to Shadowfire.
[Cat] 9/30/99 11:11:01p Cat ponders, "f*ck is not a word for CL"
[Cat] 9/30/99 11:12:42p You just received bad karma from Shadowfire Just fucking tell me not to fucking cuss you motherfucking asshole.
[Cat] I believe the log speaks for it's self
[Cat] Freedom of speech is one thing
[Cat] What shadowfire did is another
[Cat] I ask that you set an example to people that use this type of speech, that it is innapropriate for CL
[Haengemie] 10 seconds remaining, Please finish up, or say "done"...
[Cat] Thank you for your time.
[Cat] Done
[Haengemie] Thank you, Cat
[Haengemie] Shadowfire, you have 120 seconds to speak.
[Shadowfire] What the log says is one thing, note she did not include my apology?
[Shadowfire] Does not free speech indeed constitute FREE speech? As in totally unimpaired?
[Shadowfire] I apoligized to her and as I have said i mean it.
[Shadowfire] But I cannot plead guilty, as it would abridge my own right to speak as I will.
[Shadowfire] If it helps, I will pledge not to use profane language around Cat in the future.
[Shadowfire] I apoligize for the inconviencence this trial has caused you all.
[Shadowfire] And once more, ask you to vote innocent on grounds of free speech.
[Shadowfire] done
[Haengemie] Thank you, Shadowfire
