A judge approved the settlement on Thursday between Amazon and the three prosecutors, Los Angeles County District Attorney Jackie Lacey said.

They are worried about force feeding a goose, but think nothing of murdering unborn humans. Who are the lunatics here? Isiah 5:20: Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! (ASV)
