I’ve been following this story a few days. From all appearances, the Judge was lightning fast in relieving this fellow of his weapons, so let’s see how quick he is about redressing the wrong that’s been done.
Of course, I assume there’s paperwork, it should take more than a call. But they wrote and issued a Press Release, so somebody is handy with a word processor.
Yeah. I think the clerk is trying cover the judge's error. Throwing blame to the State Police. There is nothing to say that both the police and the judge are out of bounds, and I would not be surprised in the least that the bigger liar here is the court.
I know that is a complete reversal of my earlier "don't blame the judge, he's just a rubber stamp." The reversal is based on the judge being responsible to find a basis in law for what the state police are requesting.
