|Stalin, Mubarak & Trutanich|
Past, present & future tyrant-bullies?
Validating criticisms that he is a bully and a micro-manager, according to the LA Times, Trutanich has taken control of the prosecution of the political protesters and overturned his Office's established procedures in dealing with those who express their 1st Amendment rights a little too vocally.
Political protesters will face a year in jail under what seems to be Trutanich's notion of the fair exercise of prosecutorial discretion, a move that has angered all but a small group of Los Angelenos who support Trutanich's regime and are opposed to the Dream Act.
Some will find Trutanich's decision to take away the decision on how to handle political protesters from career prosecutors and into the hands of political followers, troubling. While Trutanich has been criticized in the past for his limited knowledge of law, it seems he has learned well the ways of tyrants who stifle free speech with draconian laws.
