But this is a bag of shit! But it’s good shit Mrs. Kowalski

When the law is this badly damaged it can no longer be followed.

A mentally disturbed man is wandering through traffic outside New York’s Port Authority Bus Terminal. Naturally, the NYPD open fire. They miss the guy. However, the sidewalks being full of people, they manage to hit two female pedestrians, one of them already using a walker, which comes in handy when the coppers shoot you in the leg.

The rest of the story.

Even though Broadnax was not armed, an indictment unsealed Wednesday is charging him with assault for the injuries caused by police gunfire.

Had I been a member of that grand jury I would still be laughing at that prosecuter.

  1. In a twisted sort of way this actually makes sense. Recall that if you participate in a criminal act and bad things happen you can be charged even if you didn’t cause it: let’s say you and a buddy conduct a robbery and your buddy shoots someone–you can still be charged with the shooting.

    Well, I may not have it exactly right in my example but this is actually a real thing, so this guy’s basically being charged with embarrassing the cops.
