I am crying.The Honorable General, Janet Reno has passed away. Thank you Janet, for everything.



Janet Wood Reno (July 21, 1938 – November 7, 2016) served as the Attorney General of the United States, from 1993 to 2001. She was nominated by President Bill Clinton on February 11, 1993, and confirmed on March 11, 1993.

Janet Reno was the first woman to serve as Attorney General and the second longest serving Attorney General after William Wirt.


In 2001, Reno appeared alongside Will Ferrell on Saturday Night Live in the final installment of the recurring sketch "Janet Reno's Dance Party". In another television appearance, on a 2007 Super Bowl XLI TV commercial, Janet Reno was among the guests at Chad Ochocinco's Super Bowl party.

Reno is also curating a compilation of old-time American songs performed by contemporary artists called the Song of America.

Reno also serves on the board of directors for the Innocence Project, a nonprofit organization which assists prisoners, who could be exonerated through DNA testing.

In March 2008, Reno received the Council on Litigation Management's Professionalism Award, which recognizes and commemorates an individual who has demonstrated the unique ability to lead others by example in the highest standard of their profession.

On April 17, 2009, Reno was awarded the Justice Award by the American Judicature Society. Eric Holder, Attorney General under the Obama Administration, presented Reno the award. Seth Andersen, Executive Vice President of AJS said the award recognizes "her commitment to improving our systems of justice and educating Americans about our great common enterprise – to ensure equality under the law." The award is the highest given by the AJS, and recognizes significant contributions toward improvements in the administration of justice within the United States.

In 2013, Reno voiced herself for the "Dark Knight Court" episode of The Simpsons.

53. and the children were burned alive because of it

An ATF raid which by the way was needless.

The Local Sheriff said anytime he needed Koresh to come in the man came in

He told them Koresh jogged alone on roads outside the compound daily and could have been arrested there.

but it was Budget time so the ATF INVITED the press to see a raid

ATF also lied to get TXARNG Helicopters. Ann Richard said she would never cooperate with ATF again

In fact on July 30th, 1992, 2 BATF agents (Skinner & Aguilera) went alone to Koresh's compound and he said he would let them inspect the guns and paperwork and the ATF said no- as they testified to congress.

Simply amazing, but then there were those who cried for Stalin and Mao after they went to their Inferno Rewards. I expect that the mindset here is similar.

Good to see alerters and juries sending the correct message that it is uncivil to make transphobic jokes. Especially about somebody who has just passed away.

The irony of "Spirit of Margaret Thatcher" up at # 6 is pathetic.

38. Good. I hope the fire where she's at now is hotter that the one her flunkies started

at Waco.

There were plenty of opportunities to nab Koresh away from the compound. Apparently doing it the peaceful way wouldn't have made Ms. Reno look as big and bad as she thought she was.

***
One of Koresh’s followers was Clive Doyle, an Australian who joined the Branch Davidians in 1964 under Ben Roden. On April 19,1993, Doyle escaped from the fire at the Mt. Carmel Center with severe burns to his hands and body; his 18-year-old daughter, Shari, perished.

*
Clive

. He drove the go-carts down the road. He’d go jogging; go into town to get his hair cut—all kinds of stuff. He went downtown quite often.

The ATF murdered those people.
