DC gun law in action
WashPo has the story. Second offender arrested with guns. Prosecutor in a typo doesn't list his name in the criminal complaint, court says rewrite it and come back in the morning. In the morning there's a failure to coordinate, officer is doing the paperwork but doesn't know court wants it now. Rather than wait, the court dismisses the charge.
New charges are filed, but before the guy can be found, he kills someone.
