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. :mrgreen:
