Who does Nickles blame for this?
Nickles says he’s “very unhappy and outraged” that Richardson is back on the street, and he criticized the federal prosecutors for not pursuing charges.That's right, he blames someone else. It's not my fault!! Coward!
Channing Phillips, a spokesperson for the U.S. attorney’s office, defends that decision. “In our view, there was insufficient evidence to go forward. We were obliged to not go forward,” he says. “I will add, though, if the Office of the Attorney General disagreed … they were free to charge the person themselves.”So while Nickles was busy bitching yesterday about the people who pay his paycheck - the people he swore to protect - he wasn't doing his job by keeping Michael Richardson in police custody. It's not like they didn't try to tell him.
Why does this man still have a job?
