to stop. It's not even clear there was a crime committed since the guy could have gotten the bill in change at another store. Even if he was passing a known counterfeit bill, it's not a death penalty case by any stretch of the imagination. I don't understand this prosecutor at all.

I don't think anyone believes that Officer Chauvin got up that morning and said to himself, "You know, I'm going to kill a man today." So murder in the first is off the table. But the notion that there is no support for any criminal charge takes a special kind of myopia on the prosecutor's part.

You can just imagine what the defense is going to do with that statement.

Most cops take them or pay them out. That’s why illicit drugs are so plentiful in this country.

You would be surprised to what levels this corruption has reached.
