So why did Dick Gregory get away with a openly-committed crime in DC?

Blatant, and the kind that's put other people in jail?
The short version is that the D.C. Metropolitan Police Department warned NBC News that it could not possess an actual high-capacity magazine, but NBC News went ahead and did it anyway. The MPD recommended a warrant for Gregory’s arrest, but that request was nixed by the D.C. Attorney General Irvin Nathan because — my paraphrase — Gregory was just too nice a guy and had no other criminal intent.
If I were someone jailed for possession of the same kind of mag, I'd be seeing if I could find a lawyer who wanted to go after the AG for this kind of selective prosecution.  "So, AG Nathan, you refused to issue a warrant for Mr. Gregory because he's too nice a guy and had no other criminal intent, but had no problem prosecuting my client, a nice guy/woman with (fill in exemplary background here)?"

Frigging disgusting, but what do we expect from people like Nathan in a shithole like DC?
