I used to have something riding on this question so I looked it up. Took several clicks to get the whole rambling shout.

What do we think the probability of an arrest by midnight Tuesday is? Despite the strangely specific time, I put it at 1%. Also, 0.1% chance of political violence leading to any human death within a week if not arrested Tuesday, 1% if arrested.

Is there specific terminology for the style he talks/writes with? It's fucking astounding he can get a point across. That was legit one run-on sentence until "Protest", but he rubbed against so many topics getting to it.

Good question. If there isn't an exact term for his bloviating stlye, we all need one common term for describing his particular brand of BS.

I predict Bragg waits a few days for the folks outside his office to get bored with it. The number of capslock "truths" will still steadily increase.

    JIMBO SUMMERS, FROM WATERVILLE, TENNESSEE, YOU'RE A TRUE PATRIOT ALREADY BUT YOU COULD BE 100% MAGA HERO FOREVER IF YOU DID IT WITH A GLOCK TO ALVIN AND HIS CHIPMUNKS INSIDE AFTER RICKY JOHN AND BILLY FREED MAKE A RUSH ON THE POLICE AT THE SOUTHEAST ENTRANCE

Free speech!

Anyway, I'm split on thinking that there probably won't be any violence, might give it a 5% chance, at least nothing organized, but I'm also imagining that people on e.g. telegram are circulating floor plans and shit.

An arrest at least generates some interest in him. cmy guess is chance of nil, nothing, zippo.
