Well, I’m saddened, but not surprised to report that media maggot David Gregory will not be prosecuted for knowingly violating Washington DC’s ridiculous ban on high-capacity magazines.
Emily Miller reports that the Attorney General for the District of Columbia will not press charges against Gregory.
Mr. Nathan wrote to an attorney representing Mr. Gregory and NBC News, Lee Levine of Levine Sullivan Koch & Schulz, LLP, that, “OAG has made this determination, despite the clarity of the violation of this important law, because under all of the circumstances here a prosecution would not promote public safety in the District of Columbia nor serve the best interests of the people of the District to whom this office owes its trust.”
So prosecuting Gregory for knowingly and willfully violating the law, despite being denied permission to bring the magazine, would serve no public interest whatsoever.
But prosecuting Army veterans for possessing a few ammunition rounds and saddling them with either high court costs or criminal records apparently serves some kind of public interest, although I’m still trying to figure out what that public interest would be.
Arresting and handcuffing SPC Adam Meckler, treating him like a criminal, and placing him on an offender registry for forgetting a few rounds in his bag serves the public interest.
Treating the news turd with deference, and dropping the care without so much as an interview or a slap on the wrist apparently does as well.
So much for that blind justice, eh?
The violation carries a maximum $1,000 fine and one year in jail.
