    Felony charge dropped because it could affect wealth manager's job

    A financial manager for wealthy clients will not face a felony charge in Colorado for an alleged hit-and-run because it could jeopardize his job, the Summit Daily News reports, quoting the district attorney.

    Martin Joel Erzinger, 52, director in private wealth management at Morgan Stanley Smith Barney in Denver, now faces two misdemeanor traffic charges for allegedly hitting bicyclist Steven Milo from behind then speeding away, according to court documents.
    You know, if you or I (Joe Ordinary) had hit this man, we would be going to prison. Never mind our jobs, we would be screwed. But, it's good to know that, if you are rich, the prosecutor will give you a hand up, and reduce the charges. I mean, this "innocent" man only hit the bicyclist, causing severe injury, then fled, leaving him on the road for dead. He didn't do anything that could be considered a felony, did he? After all, he has money, and an important job, which is way too important to jeopardize for the sake of some regular guy on a bicycle.

    This prosecutor should be fired. Period. He should also be ordered to stop receiving blow jobs from important people at Morgan-Stanley.

    not really-in many cases-especially federal ones-rich white collar frauds get far more time than poor mopes.

    Absolutely outrageous. What in God's name is going on there?
    The devil whispered in my ear, "You cannot withstand the storm." I whispered back, "I am ​the storm."

    that is the sort of silliness I was expecting. The rich do have the advantage of being able to afford better-or at least perceived as better-lawyers though there are few private attorneys-especially in federal courts (where the big fraud cases end up) who have the experience that federal public defenders do. But that doesn't come from the government giving the wealthy any advantage--rather it comes from the wealthy being able to afford 500 an hour counsel

    Seems it also comes from the wealthy being able to afford paying for a prosecutor as well. LOL.

    Their wealth gives them access to the part of our legal system that allows $500 an hour attorneys that enable clients to buy their way out of trouble.

    This is why I like mandatory sentencing laws.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
