and the Police Department you'll not find in this country.
Mr. Witaschek, a successful financial adviser with no criminal history, is the first known case of a citizen being prosecuted in D.C. for inoperable ammunition. Washington police and prosecutors have spent a year and a half trying to nail him for the possession of so-called unregistered ammunition.
You'll notice that this sorry excuse for law enforcement includes a SWAT team raid with no warrant, and AG Irvin Nathan and the aforementioned bastard excuses for cops trying desperately to get him to plead to SOMETHING. Including a reduced charge of “attempted possession” of ammunition, whatever the hell that is.
And, as noted, let it not be forgotten this is the PD and AG who refused to prosecute Dick Gregory for openly having an illegal magazine. That wouldn't promote public safety, but this bullshit apparently does. Somehow.
I sincerely hope the victim sues the ass off the PD and prosecutors both. And files federal charges for the civil rights violations*.
