The fact here though is that this douche nozzle is just a DA. According to the website: manhattanDA.org the responsibility of the Manhattan DA is:
The District Attorney's Office represents the People of the State of New York in bringing charges against a suspect in a court of law. The New York County District Attorney's Office has the responsibility and authority to investigate and prosecute crimes in the borough of Manhattan.
His role is to represent the people. In this instance he is not representing the people or prosecuting. He is just furthering an agenda.
