That's the burning question for McBride & Co. this week.
The Journal Sentinel reports:
The city attorney's office moved to dismiss the charges citing a lack of sufficient evidence against those ticketed, said municipal court Judge Derek Mosley.Says McBride:
Police arrested 21 people March 19 on suspicion of disorderly conduct after windows were smashed at the recruiting station, in the 3100 block of N. Oakland Ave.
Mosley granted the dismissal without prejudice, meaning that the charges could be filed again if police collect more evidence.
DA Chisholm and US Attorney Biskupic, the ball is in your court.She and other wingnut bloggers are poised to criticize DA John Chisholm, a Democrat, if he doesn't charge anyone. In fact, many of them jumped the gun and attacked him last week for dropping the municipal charges, which he had nothing to do with. It's not clear whether they are as ready or willing to go after US Atty. Steven Biskupic, the Republican appointee they all love for his willingness to prosecute Democrats.
Indymedia first reported the story on the dropped charges, although it was a Junior McBride, Rebecca Hontowicz, whose subsequent post got all of the right wing's undies in a bundle.
