The Ultimate Answer to Kings said he hadn’t heard about this. Me either.
That guy who got busted in New York earlier in the month for the heinous crime of carrying two too many rounds of ammo? The DA quietly but promptly dropped the charges. And his reasoning in doing so was quite, er, reasonable. For a DA.
“Ignorance of the law is no excuse under the law and this is still a crime but this guy has absolutely no criminal history and is not a danger to society,” Czajka said Friday.
Of course he also tried to steer clear of the political ramifications, using the case to pimp for more money for his department. Presumably if Czajka had the massive army of prosecutors he wants, Gregory Dean would suddenly have found himself declared a terrible danger to society. But hey! Whatever works. It was still a good decision.
Last time I checked, ignorance of the law IS an excuse (or at least a mitigating factor) in the Free State of Arizona. Of course, having two more rounds of ammunition than the average bear isn’t a crime, here.
