When it comes to Nazis, President Trump has more flip-flops than a hipster-infested beach on Independence Day. Durham’s Confederate participation trophy is removed by protestors, Maryland can’t find prison guards who aren’t criminals, and Tennessee runs an entire criminal justice system without judges or defense attorneys. And in this week’s #Law140 segment, we take a look at the mechanics of felony charges against those #DefendDurm protestors.
