In the nation's capital, it's a fair question to ask: Who gets the better deal, innocent citizens who want to own a gun, or dangerous criminals? The District's deliberate policy of releasing criminals back onto the streets shows the liberal city council's answer has little to do with public safety.
A D.C. Superior Court judge granted pretrial release to a man who was involved in a shootout with officers — a decision that doesn't sit well with Montgomery County police.
Additionally, Mr. Speight was suffering from an undiagnosed mental illness at the time of the shooting and is now receiving treatment, Mr. Satin wrote.
Mr. Speight's injuries from the shootout left his right arm paralyzed, "a fact that certainly reduces his capacity to injure someone in the community," his public defender, Michael Satin, wrote in motions to D.C. Superior Court Judge Florence Pan.
