    Trash talking the UAW makes no sense. There is just as much evidence that Elon paid him to make excuses for missed production targets.

    He's already got the ultimate punishment: Musk called him a HORRIBLE person.

    Just wait till FSD and Tesla Network comes out, and he can't use it (along with hyperloop, loop, SpaceX perma-bans)

    Not going to happen. There may be a civil award to Tesla. He will just claim bankruptcy again and wipe out the debt.

    You clearly have no experience or knowledge of how the legal system works in this case. In addition to a CIVIL suit, this guy will likely be criminally prosecuted. He's going to go to Jail unless he can reach a settlement to roll over on who he was passing the data on to.

    In case you missed it, Tesla has hired a PIT BULL of a law firm to go after this guy and any associates they find. This is going to be a blood bath for all involved.

    We will see.

    The plot thickens in that he has previously leaked negative info about Tesla. Maybe he was setup? Maybe a way of telling others that release negative info that Tesla will make an example of you? Just speculation but who knows.

    Care to put your money where your mouth is? I've got $100 USD that says he was not setup.

    I am not saying he is not guilty but the man is innocent until proven guilty. All options are possible.

    The phase you are looking for is 'presumed innocent' (or presumption of innocence). Whether he is guilty or innocent has already been determined by actions which happened in the past. Schrodinger's's cat has already been observed.

    No, no they are not...

    “Yesterday afternoon, we received a phone call from a friend of Mr. Tripp telling us that Mr. Tripp would be coming to the Gigafactory to ‘shoot the place up.’" A Tesla spokesperson told The Drive, "Police have been notified and actions are being taken to enhance security at the Gigafactory.”

    Sure sounds like hearsay.

    Hearsay - Wikipedia

    Hearsay is reporting what you were told by someone who witnessed it. (second hand information)
    Reporting what you were told is being a witness.(first hand information)
    If the friend was told that by Tripp, it is not hearsay. Do you have any data to support your premise that the caller was not told by Tripp directly?

    Do you have any evidence he was told directly? Any evidence it is not an opinion of the friend?

    (Double Facepalm)

    That's called perjury genius. The witness is assumed and believed (even in Canadian law) to be trustworthy unless their is evidence to support otherwise. In this case, I'm sure phone logs could easily be obtained.

    That information is already out and is in the WP story. The recipient is the shady Lopez from Business Insider.
