DC Prosecutor: No arrest for NBC’s Gregory

| January 11, 2013

The other day we wrote about Emily Miller’s article about the DC Metropolitan Police passing on their investigation of David Gregory’s heinous disregard of the District’s large capacity magazine ban, in contradiction of an advisory from the MPD to the City prosecutor. Of course it will surprise no one that the prosecutor isn’t prosecuting, according to the Washington Post;

D.C. attorney general Irvin B. Nathan announced his decision Friday afternoon by releasing a letter to an attorney for NBC. Nathan wrote that though the device Gregory held up “meets the definition” of the criminal statute, he wrote that 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.”

I guess the only interest served in the arrest and prosecution of David Gregory would be a measure of credibility of the justice system in DC, since 105 people were arrested in the District for possessing large capacity magazines last year. Including James Brinkley, an Army Veteran, who was just passing through DC when he was arrested. But then, he wasn’t a rich white guy, and he wasn’t toeing the party line while he was in possession of the illegal item. And, his defense wouldn’t make banning the harmless object look ridiculous.

Thanks to Chief Tango for the link.

    What the actual fuck…not surprised but this is a clear example of rampant stupidity. He broke the law, he pays the price.

  3. USMCE8Ret says:

    @2 – No, he breaks the law, but folks like US pay the price.

    This comes as NO surprise. No surprise at all.

    Rumor is that the AG is a friend of his wife.

    What a crock of shit.

    The Baboon avoids cage time…surely, Fox News Sunday’s Chris Wallace or Shannon Bream would have gotten a pass as well if they had pulled same stunt as Dave.

    Honestly this is something that really needs to go viral. If he gets off on the charge then they need to start letting all of the people who have been busted on this get away with it. It just really pisses me off especially a lot of the vets and soldiers who have been busted on the exact same thing.

    I have said, before, that some people are more equal than others. If it were Wayne LaPierre holding up that mag in that interview; every anti-gunner in the country would have been screaming for his arrest and I will bet with anyone that it would have happened and LaPierre would have been made an example. However, the left always thinks that the means justify the ends and they can break any law they want to in order to “prove a point”.

    like any of us couldn’t have predicted this—there isn’t a soul on this site who is surprised. he gets a pass, but we would get hosed.

    Time to do an open carry march on DC I guess. Free speach right?

    Pro-weed advocates should take note as well. Protest and light ‘me up.
