Fallon Smart's Murderer Out On Bail

Filed under: portland, sovereignty games — Benjamin Vulpes @ 9:48 p.m.

The Oregonian, as always, gets it wrong:

Noorah, 21, remains in the Multnomah County Detention Center on $1 million bail.

One can trivially determine this to be false:


Hey, what was that?


But (from the same rag)...

A deputy who compiled records filed Aug. 31 in Multnomah County Circuit Court wrote that she spoke about Noorah with an official from the Saudi Arabian consulate in Los Angeles. The deputy wrote that it was her understanding the consulate has retained legal counsel for Noorah and plans to post his bail.

The US educational system (which never achieved anywhere near the Stradivarius quality of the European universities) thirsts for turkey-buyin' dollars, to the extent that it reaches far and wide, collecting the children of those who yet believe that the US education is worth their money, or need to park a particularly useless specimen (I did my ME studies next to the guys who make lots of noise with their Maseratis and mirror-wrapped Nissan Z's (?!) ripping up and down 4th and Broadway in the University district, and Community College and a Lexus are /not/ the jewels a Roman family would hang around their kids necks to indicate the danger of touching the kid in question) elsewhere for a few years. The practice is far older than your typical internet commenter realizes—I, for instance, went to a local high school that operates a boarding program with a population of somewhere in the neighborhood of %85 Korean/Chinese/Japanese (the odd white kid could be found in the dorms, but not many).

The spectacle will now revolve around sovereignty games: will the Saudi "government" (to the extent that it has something shaped like what the typical American thinks of as a "government", which is to say "the great not-a-lord to which we have all delegated our decisionmaking aka Democracy") step in and extract their wayward child from a lynching in Portland, or will the glorious United States Government step up to bat for its barely-attached Cascadian subjects and demand restitution? Or, will the two Great Incas join hands and come up with some brilliant plan to assuage both the injured sovereignty and keep the kid from getting poked full of holes in jail?

However this plays out, it's popcorn time!
