Plaxico Burress indicted

I have tried to paint a more sympathetic picture of Plaxico Burress in my writings (here and here). I think that Plaxico's lawyer had it correct when he said:

“Although disappointed, we are not surprised, as the facts of this case have not been in dispute since the date of the incident,” Mr. Burress’s lawyer, Benjamin Brafman, said in a statement Monday. “When you have the mayor and the district attorney both publicly demanding a maximum prison sentence, it was perhaps too much to hope for the grand jury to conduct a sympathetic review of the unique facts of this sad case.”

When the government can't protect these high profile individuals what does one expect them to do?

The sad and ironic thing is that he had the money and wherewithal to get a permit in NYC (certainly easier than you or I) and really should have known better about the PRNYC. I think the right word is dumb ass. Of course Bloomberg, in all his anti-gun glory, will want him to be made an example of, so don't be surprised if he has to do some time.

The government protect rights? Surely you jest Dr. Lott.

To destroy the rights of a high profile individual merely demonstrates a willingness of elected offals to destroy the rights of all but themselves.

Once that is accomplished, then 'We the People' shall truly become slaves to those whom are supposed to serve us.
