  •  Lotsa absurd prosecutions out there. (0+ / 0-)

    I'd be shocked if a young black man were allowed such a justification upon getting caught waving a 30-bullet clip around.

    I wasn't commenting on the law or whether such an action should in general be prosecuted, just noting that the decision to prosecute won't likely be based solely on the kind of justice-based considerations you mention.

      working for ProPublica, I'd make the same argument.  The young criminal type person wouldn't have the extenuating circumstances, and in a few years, we can all make fun of people misapplying the "David Gregory defense."

      Difficult, difficult, lemon difficult.
